PETA Targets Pokemon, Creates “Gotta Free them All” Flash Game

After targeting Mario recently with the ‘Mario Kills Tanooki campaign’, PETA have done it again and have gone after Pokemon. Their latest mantra? “Gotta Free them All”. Of course, it’s a twisted version of “Gotta Catch them All”.

Indeed, their Mario campaign was lame too.

Oh my god... PETA is such a joke. "Let's opposed the capture of fictional monsters!" Great ides guys! I think you'll have to help the Digimon next though!

People who say "it's stupid because Pokémon aren't real" really don't get it. If you do think about it, trapping animals and make them fight each other is actually terrible and cruel. Pokémon aren't real, but real animals are suffering this same fate, they are kept in tiny cages, they aren't treated well, and they have to fight or worse to get little food to barely stay alive.

It's obvious that the goal of this kind of thing isn't to make people free their Pokémon, but to use it as a way to bring attention to the real animals who, in a lot of ways, are treated as Pokémon (and they don't only faint when they lose a battle - they die). I don't really like Peta, but I think that most of its opposers are more stupid than the things Peta does.

We understand it is a metaphor, but it is a stupid metaphor. When groups like PETA do things like this it is hard for them to be taken seriously. There are way more mature ways for them to spread awareness of the problems of animal fighting. Why waste their time making a flash game?

What you said is exactly why I don't really like Peta. And that's the kind of opinion that makes sense. In my previous post I was talking about people who concentrate on the Pokémon part and forget (or fail to notice) the real message.

- "Let's oppose the capture of fictional monsters!" Great idea guys!
- Do they live in the real world (the same one as I do) where people can understand the difference between fiction and reality.
- Pokemon Exist Today Apparently. I'm almost certain there's medication to deal with this sort of thing.
- These creatures ARENT REAL!

You see? There're people who actually think this Peta thing is really aimed at Pokémon, and not that Peta is using Pokémon to get attention to a real problem. You and I agree that it's not a good way to raise awareness to the problem, but you must agree that people who don't realize the real message aren't very bright either.

besides nobody liking you, Pokemon totally trolled you in Black and White by making the main villains, oh yeah YOU.

That's all I had to say

Lol. I never looked at it like that.
