PETA Attacks Nintendo again(Pokemon Black and White 2)

PETA attacks Pokemon for promoting animal abuse

Pikachu and his human trainer, Ash Ketchum. From dressing up as Ku Klux Klansmen to featuring scantily clad celebrities, PETA's appetite for publicity seems boundless.

Now, the animal rights group has set its sights on Pokemon, charging that the franchise's latest video game, Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2, paints a rosy picture of what amounts to thinly veiled animal abuse.
The organization says that much like animals in the real world, Pokemon are treated as unfeeling objects and used for human entertainment and as subjects in experiments.
"The way that Pokemon are stuffed into pokeballs is similar to how circuses chain elephants inside railroad cars and let them out only to perform confusing and often painful tricks that were taught using sharp steel-tipped bullhooks and electric shock prods," PETA claims.
In an attempt to save young minds who play the game, PETA has released a parody game called Pokemon Black and Blue: Gotta Free 'Em All which can be played on its site.
In an article that appears on Forbes' website, David Ewalt argues that "PETA seems to have missed the single biggest theme of the Pokemon series: That Pokemon should be treated humanely and live as our equals.
"The games are loaded with an endless stream of characters who go on and on about true friendship between man and Pokemon," he writes. "It’s so saccharine and so completely opposite what PETA suggests that it boggles the mind."

How much do you want to bet that they'll attack Zelda for the chicken attacks?

PETA is a joke.

That's all I have to say.
Unfortunately, they are a joke that has hurt millions of animals they claim to help. :/

What the ****....

Their claims don't even come relatively close to making sense.

Like the guy in the video said, they just want a little attention.


They're getting it, but it's not the reputation they want.

This is utterly ridiculous. Any activist group that is campaigning against animal rights groups in Pokémon is not looking hard enough for actual issues. I think it's insulting to waste time giving extra publicity to the Pokémon B&W2 games when there are actual animals that need freeing, the "elephants" as so aptly noted by the article.

This is just as ridiculous as the mother who grounded her child for trying to play pokemon just because she believed it would turn her son into a sinner or something along those lines -_- people these days
