Well bear in mind, just because they can doesn’t mean they will, especially if they are closer to the animal end. They used to train elephants by chaining them to a stake when they were young - even when they get much bigger and can pull it out easily, they don’t think they can. Similar phenomenon of learned helplessness have been observed with dogs - and people.
 
My own take on Pokemon is very much a hybrid mash-up - I think that’s probably the case for most people whose exposure isn’t only through a single media.

As for Pokemon and consent… I suppose one also has to consider what, if any, significance they assign such things in the first place. Do they even mate for pleasure?

That would likely depend on how canon to pokemon biology the breeding mechanics are, do pokemon go through estrus cycles? game mechanics suggest pokemon can mate and reproduce at any point, that might suggest they’re capable of mating for pleasure, but that might just be for convenience sake
 
Dolphins are supposedly known to mate for fun, so maybe Pokemon can too
 
Obviously Porn logic suggests they do, but then porn logic suggests a lot of things that may or may not be true for pokemon

The games don’t tell us much in the way of pokemon breeding for obvious reasons, but the game mechanics are the only way we can figure how they breed.
 
When leaving two pokemon at the day care, you’ll get one of five responses, two of which specifically are
 
“The two seem to get along very well!” which gives you a 70% chance of getting an egg per cycle  
And  
“The two don’t seem to like each other” but this still gives you a 20% chance of getting an egg from them anyway, whether that implies a lack of consent amongst each other or not, I couldn’t tell you, but it’s a topic.

I not knowledgeable in animal breeding enough to say one way or another, though I’d assume that sapient beings would at least hesitate when it comes to breeding with family, which pokemon don’t show.

Ah, but in the original gold and Silver, they were programmed to refuse to breed with a parent or sibling, the feature was removed in later installments for whatever reason.

Seeing as said lore is mythology made by people who would want human/pokemon sexual relationships to not be hindered, I think it’s moreso me putting said myth under question.

Yeah, but what does “mythology made by people who would want human/pokemon sexual relationships to not be hindered,” have to do with the validity of the rest of the lore?
 
Or how does it invalidate the human/pokemon relations bit of lore for that matter?

How about the fact that lopunny is based of the playboy bunny? or the fact that it’s mega has it “wearing” what looks like ripped spandex and 80’s work out video scrunchies?
 
or the fact that Gardy’s mega is wearing what looks like a wedding dress, or the fact that Lillegant’s moon dex entry talks about it’s flower wilting away when it wants to partner up with a male
 
or that salazzle is a metaphoric sex-bomb of sorts.
 
or there’s the chick in the sun and moon demo that refers to a Machamp as her boyfriend.
 
The pokemon games are chock full of low-key innuendo and pokemon designs that are blatantly supposed to be sexy

It’s not though?
 
I mean if the players can find fictional pokemon to be sexy, and for Pokephilia to be it’s own named thing when pokemon aren’t real, you don’t think that crap would be even more common place in a world where those things are real!?

The fact that there’s so much porn concerning only pokemon, I think should tell you what it would be like in the actual world of pokemon, where people are practically born surrounded, and die surrounded by pokemon, seriously there are a lot of people in this fan base that are literally attracted to Pokemon, a fictional species
 
The world of Pokemon centers around pokemon regardless of whether the people are trainers or not, you don’t think some people wouldn’t find them attractive?
 
You don’t think that a ten year old boy, who traveled along side, fought with and ate with his Buneary, would think nothing of his Lopunny by the time he was going through puberty, or hell, actually cared deeply for for that matter?
