PETA or Pokémon, Who’s Side are You On?

As gamers, when reading a headline about a large group of people bashing a video game for no apparent reason, we are likely to get angry. A recent story shows that the animal activist group, PETA, has put Pokémon in the spotlight of their latest tirade. They claim that Pokémon is prompting children to abuse animals because of the way they battle their Pokémon. The group is taking things as far as to make a game titled, “Pokémon: Black and Blue” to get their point across. At first thought a gamer and Pokémon fan would probably be highly bothered by the false accusations brought upon a beloved franchise, however, is that really the case? As much as gamers want to fight against such an outlandish accusation, could PETA really have a point? (Culture, Pokemon Black 2, Pokemon Black and White 2, Pokemon White 2)

Im going to have to say both. I am a huge pokemon fan but PETA does have a point.. kind of... well for someone that doesnt understand. Their last statement made me laugh though. Pokemon are not treated like they dont have feelings and no they are not stuffed in the ball. I think they should stop worrying about whats not real and focus on the more important real animal abuse around us.

Had a good laugh when they got upset about Mario too. Just stay out of gaming PETA and then i'll continue to show my support for your cause. Stop worrying about whats not real. Everytime i battle a Psyduck i dont think "Hey i feel like getting up off the couch and finding a real duck to smash... after all thats what pokemon whats me to do"

I know this may be sacrelig, but I never liked Pokemon. However, PETA drives me CRAZY sometimes! Remember the "sea kittens?"
