PETA Attacks Pokémon

Mittens of Ludos-Mundi.com Reports:

Pokémon Black and Blue was created by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) in an attempt to teach children the cruelty behind animal abuse. The game portrays Pokémon trainers as maniacal beings who care for only money and entertainment. Not only that but the game features Pokémon that are bruised, bloody, battered, and beaten. I was simply outraged at just the concept of the game! So of course I directed my internet browser to PETA’s website and played through the absolute worst representation of Pokémon I have ever witnessed. (3DS, Culture, Industry, Nintendo DS, Pokemon, PS2, Wii)

Group hug is super effective.Im being honest....another move is protesting,and another one is educate.... wtf. You also go against professor oak rip-off character and against what im guessing is so-post to be team plasma's leader which he likes to eat and wear Pokemon for clothes...Btw,the professor oak rip-off character likes to experiment with them and the trainer likes to just abuse them....

Making a Pokemon game to make their point, is the wrong way for PETA to approach this.

Publicity stunt. Pokemon has nothing to do with cruelty to animals.

Michael Vick: Pokemon? Pokemon is my FAVORITE GAME!

Pokemon isn't going to normalize animal fighting. But even if they thought so....where were they almost 2 decades ago? Pokemon was pretty much just popular in those days, and those terrorists have been around since the 80s.

Where do they get their money...
X-Factor  +   1025d ago
PETA? I'm sure it's a nonprofit so donations and some government funding.

Rich people, anyone really, who love pets have no problem donating money and taking a tax deduction.

I'm just amazed at how organizations like PETA can stay around. I mean, who is getting the money and for what? Making fun of a video game to make people aware?

I'm just surprised that it took them this long to get around to bashing it.

Born again Christians have before, it was actually called 'the devil'

Also, copyright infringement, Sue em Nintendo!

Personally, I think this would breath some new life into the Series. What a story it would be for the Pokemon verse to realize their wrong doings

lol...

As a Born again Christian, I can positively say that Jigglypuff or all other the pokemons for that matter, is not the devil.

You stole my words... PETA is 17 years too late.

Maybe they were busy with other things.

Pokemon isn't real PETA.Sad but true.

This is obviously a publicity stunt.
I'm sorry you kids can't see that.

Ill give this one a try. I loved the cooking momma one lol. I don't know how anyone could actually take Peta seriously.

PETA is just trolling, dont feed them
X-Factor  +   1026d ago
PETA is straight up trolling.

They picked a popular kids and adults video game series and used it to spread their message.

I don't disagree with their message. I love animals.

The strange thing is that they made such a bold approach by using a game that does not encourage cruelty to animals. In fact the opposite.

So with that said, like so many others that target games without fully understanding them, are they just misguided or this is a flat out attempt at publicity.

Based on the quality and similarity of the game to real pokemon. I say the latter.

How cute. They're trying to be relevant in this day and age.

PETA=Please Eat Tasty Animals.

LMFAO, bubble for you, Joey.

I still would sue them for the lulz of it , if i was Nintendo .
PS : i agree with their message against animl cruelty , but many of the battle they picked and their usual attitude is dead wrong .

I would have found it funny, in an ironic way, if it wasn't for the fact it is one of the most sluggish games ever on the web.
