Recently, I discovered this and it made me vomit in my mouth. Apparently, PETA decided that Pokemon was "too violent" and "encouraged animal cruelty". So I ask you good Armor Gamers: Are you the insane jerks pictures in the game? Do you hurt things because of Pokemon? The game is through the link by the way.

All the time actually. Why just yesterday I set a dogs tail on fire to make it a charmander, and pitted it against a gerbil that I had run electricity through. However, they didn't seem to fit in my homemade pokeball. And they still haven't evolved yet even though I have been training them against my neighbors turtle that he attached vine whips to. I'm hoping if I can train my goldfish to tackle he can provide a boost to my team, cause his splash attack doesn't do **** right now. Wish me luck. I've been looking for some gym leaders on the new apple maps but it keeps sending me to 24 hour fitness, and no one there seems interested in having a duel, and there isn't even a suitable arena. If anyone has any good gym leaders in their area could you let me know, I'm getting a bit desperate for a good challenge.

I don't usually have many good words to say about PETA, or People Eating Tasty Animals as I call them, and this time it's no different.

PETA what is PETA

To actually answer your question instead of just throwing it at the wall, PETA is an activist organization for fair, respectful treatment of animals. Though their cause is reasonable and justified at times, most times what they advertise for their organization pushes the limits of federal law and blows situations out of proportion in order to make said situations more serious and have viewers demand immediate attention.

It's better than most of what they come up with. This time they at least made something congruent with it. Pokemon Black and White was just practically inviting PETA to make a parody of it. What better way to make a parody of Pokemon in order to advocate fair treatment of animals than to use an actual organization within the game itself? It's the perfect crossover! To them, Team Plasma is their patron.

Lmao I don't understand how PETA can even make that claim. They only say at least 4 times per episode how pokemon are friends and blah blah blah...Really.

PETA is the stupidest thing on earth. Did you know they once dressed up as the Ku Klux Klan? They made fun of a fisherman who got bit by a shark. Besides anybody ever heard of the saying: If eating fried chicken is murder, then murder must taste pretty **** good. XD

Okay, so here's the thing, Pokemon is, at it's core, a pretty twisted game. You capture wild creatures and you fight them against other creatures. The reason it's acceptable to allow children to play these games is because the Pokemon in the games don't seem to mind, fighting is just something they do as a hobby and enjoy!

Team Rocket just cut off some poor slowpoke's tails, how evil! But when you pit Slowpoke against a fire breathing dragon that blasts fire at it, or against an electric mouse that shocks it with jolts of electricity, it's perfectly acceptable and helps you build a good relationship with said Pokemon.

But is Pokemon really teaching our children bad messages? It's a video game, and kids know this. I want to say that it astonishes me how much PETA underestimate's human intelligence, but that would be a complete lie. We don't mimic everything we see in media. I'm sure children can be influenced by media, but the reason Pokemon isn't going to teach them to be abusive towards animals is because children know what is and is not acceptable in real life.
