PETA Targets Pokémon Black & White 2

Is there anything PETA (People For Ethical Treatment of Animals) won’t do for publicity? Last year PETA attacked Nintendo for the use of a Tanooki suit worn by Mario in the 3DS title Super Mario 3D Land. With the latest release of Pokémon Black and White 2, PETA is back to attack Nintendo’s latest entry in the series with what might be the most lame attempt to bring down Nintendo yet. Here are some excerpts from the promotion site explaining their reason for attacking Pokemon:

For generation’s, Pokémon have suffered at the hands of their cruel trainers. Help PETA free Pikachu and his Pokémon friends as they struggle for Pokémon liberation.”

“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.”

If PETA existed in Unova, our motto would be: Pokémon are not ours to use or abuse. They exist for their own reasons. We believe that this is the message that should be sent to children. —Team PETA

    Hold the phone! That Pikachu’s sign says “I support Team Plasma” on it?

    Excuse me while I laugh my ass off… If only PETA actually knew the story behind Plasma. See, this is what happens when a moronic group like these asshats only play the first fifteen minutes of a game.
