Gotta free 'em all?
PETA certainly has a patchy relationship with Nintendo. I doubt they'll be sending each other Christmas cards this year either, after this Flash game parody of Pokemon Black & White.
Pokemon Black & Blue is a spoof by PETA, drawing attention to the way creatures are held captive and supposedly treated in a cruel fashion.
"Much like animals in the real world, Pokemon are treated as unfeeling objects and used for such things as human entertainment and as subjects in experiments. The way that Pokemon are stuffed into pokeballs 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: Pokemon 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." - PETA statement
Here's the game in all its glory. Be warned though, after the first victory it does include one disturbing video.
Is this an overreaction by Peta or do they have a point?
