Of course PETA has created a Pokemon parody, timing its release with Pokemon Black 2 and White 2’s launch:
“The amount of time that Pokémon spend stuffed in pokéballs is akin to how elephants are chained up in train carts, waiting to be let out to “perform” in circuses. But the difference between real life and this fictional world full of organized animal fighting is that Pokémon games paint rosy pictures of things that are actually horrible.”
PETA’s Marketing Innovations director Joel Bartlett adds, “Games such as Pokémon send kids the wrong message that exploiting and abusing those who are defenseless is acceptable when it’s not. But with Pokémon Black and Blue, children can experience the great feeling that comes from saving others from harm.”
Hahaha, shouldn’t Peta know not to mess with Nintendo fans after the Mario 3D Land fiasco? Also, they’re the ones depicting the Pokemon all beat up and…having medical needles stuck in them? Uh…okay…
Sometimes I think PETA is a right-wing front group trying to make people hate animal rights activists. >_<
Oh HERE WE GO. More Team Plasma bullshit.
PETA is seriously never going to help themselves not look like total idiots.
HAHA I JUST SAW THAT
I just got mudkip
I have to admit though
They got a pretty good artist to do this for them.
the needle tough is this a protest for the free health care given by pokemon centers or something
