After publicly humiliating themselves saying Mario wearing a tanooki outfit in Super Mario 3D Land was considered animal abuse, animal rights group PETA has attacked the Pokemon franchise. It says Pokemon are used in unloving and cruel ways just for the use of entertainment and humane fun. Remember that Pokemon has and never will be real and claims by PETA are once again absurd and pointless. Just read the statement below and tell us what you think.
“Much like animals in the real world, Pokémon are treated as unfeeling objects and used for such things as human entertainment and as subjects in experiments. The way that Pokémon are stuffed into pokéballs is similar to how circuses chain elephants inside railroad cars and let them out only to perform confusing and often painful tricks that were taught using sharp steel-tipped bullhooks and electric shock prods …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.”
