    PETA attacks Pokemon

    As the title says. I cant stop laughing they really went and attacked a game that has fictional animals. Heres a link to some info about it, they even have a game called Pokemon Black and Blue somewhere in this link. http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-new...to-free-em-all

    I suppose it was only a matter of time...but I wonder what would happen if they spent all that time and money on things that actually mattered. Like, I don't know, helping the ASPCA (the people who actually deal with abused animals).

    That's pathetic. This makes me think of Saudi Arabia and their nonsense about how Pokemon is akin to witchcraft.

    That made me laugh! Some seriously weird people in PETA. I wonder when they'll address pet battles, hunter pets and that fact that you can kill critters?
    Yes, I like animals, but that doesn't stop me from having a nice, raw weekend steak or enjoying pokemon. I would rather support ASPCA or another organisation that actually helps animals.

    This is just sad, actually it's more sad when PETA tried to say a Dolphin was trying to commit suicide when it accidentally jump out of its aquarium

    So, in short: the internet.

    This game literally made me dumber. I cant say I'm shocked but there is a level of incredulity.

    Haha the Pokémon game where you battled the trainers was actually quite entertaining and like it or not pretty true. Although I doubt Pokémon influence any children in a bad way.

    I'm beginning to think PETA's aware of the fact that no one takes them seriously and they're just churning this out for the free press.

    At least that's what I'm telling myself to counter the fact that people actually believe PETA's succeeding.
    That fabric softener teddy bear...oooh I'm 'a hunt that little bitch down.

    I really hate those guys, after I tore down some posters and stickers they used to vandalize a bus stop I frequent, they wrote their website all over the place with permanent marker...

    Possibly the worst organization ever - and I don't meant just activist groups, I mean ALL groups.

    PETA is a bunch of useless fucking asshats.
    The less you know, the more you believe.


    Actually, Mr. Lennon, I CAN imagine a world with no hate, religion, war, or violence.
    I can also imagine attacking such a world, because they would never see it coming.

    This is ridiculous. It's a game in a fantasy setting, first and foremost. The Pokémon universe teaches much more (friendship/companionship/bad guys don't win/etc.). There are bonds between the Pokémon and their trainers, and those that do abuse them do face their just dessert. And to top it off, Pokémon aren't helpless animals.

    PETA is a backward, hypocritical organisation. They expose petty things and merely hunger for publicity.. and they hardly find answers/ways to help suffering animals, and their extremist actions are atrocious. They're a flawed, falsely advertised, and ultimately a terrorist organisation. They claim to help animals, but methods of hate and violence will not get your point across. That's about it (but is obviously my opinion on the matter).

    And I do care for animal rights/protection, but PETA are well.. see above.

    The word you want to use is "have" not "of".

    Or he might be talking about peta's parody game.

    This makes me feel like marmot stomping.
    "Once you stop caring what an arrogant, ignorant, idiotic little twat somewhere half-way across the world in a mouldy little basement with his mother yelling down at him to get off his arse and get a job is saying on the internet, you will find an immense calm overcome you. Suddenly the world will seem a brighter place and your mood will improve immediately."

    I've always wondered about how they actually pit their pets against each other in deathmatches and get away with it
