I see Pokemon as battle loving creatures. They seem to enjoy fighting regardless of having a trainer or not, much like regular animals. The fact that trainers pit them against each other in non-killing matches, while having top-notch medical care for their creatures seems benefitial to the species desire for combat.
Besides that point, there are plenty of people in the Pokemon universe who use them merely for companionship, or work. If anything, Pokemon have better lives than real animals.
