    This is why everyone takes PETA as a legitimate organization.

    In fairness Pokemon is glorified cockfighting.

    Wonder how many people would actually want Pokemon this violent.

    Well, it better than what they did with Mario, but still not right.

    I love how Pikachu's ear is half missing yet still perfectly straight.

    i think there needs to be some amount of profit in order for there to be a legitimate lawsuit. . .

    No dumbass, they capture them and lock them in Pokeballs because they "love them!".

    But to be fair, Black and White tackled that issue a bit.

    God damnit peta this is why nobody takes you seriously. When people donate money you guys use it to make shitty flash parodies "defending" something that wasn't even an actual problem in the first place.

    Good on Game Freak for acknowledging the ethical questions about their games.

    Waiting for the Pokemon Yellow 3DS remake entitled "Pikachu's Stockholm Syndrome".

    BTW this is just meant to be a bit of fun, no one needs to take this seriously. Just them using a game to get their name out more.

    I did like how PETA called out that awful plot twist in Pokemon Black and White. Like for once I'm playing the game and I'm like "Wow, maybe they introduced a villain that isn't completely dastardly evil?" Then they just go "NOPE WE WANT TO ENSLAVE THEM LIKE EVERY OTHER TEAM ROCKET RESKIN."

    Like really? You were on the road to making a villain that, while completely two dimensional, stepped outside the boundaries of their normal typecasts, and then just throw that away.

    You can't put legitimate moral dilemmas and actual problems into a kids game, most adults can't even figure that shit out.

    Waits for Peta's apology after backlash.
