Oh look it's Team Killjoy and Team Hypocrite.
when you say look look after do you really mean killing domesticated animalsgetoffmycloud said:As much as PETA are right that pokemon is glorified dogfighting don't they have some real animals to look after or something.
Unfortunately, as I believe I said, after the mario one their image is just gone, we dont support PETA because we know what they're like and even this smells of sensationalist horse-shit. Which given you are aware of the mario one, should not need explaining. Maybe they do have a point but I/we don't care, they're targetting a childrens game, claiming it emulates the exploitation of animals, but that isnt how kids are seeing this. We as a generation of former 8-11 year olds are not running secret dog fighting rings in our basement. So, I dont think they're making that point you think they are, I think they're starving for attention and we keep giving it to them. For a source check just about any other post here describing how PETA operates.NuclearShadow said:I think the real message here is they are speaking out against using animals for entertainment in terrible ways such as dog fights. Poke'mon being basically just that which is popular among children is a great way to get that message across. I may not agree with PETA often but they have my support on this one.
The attacks on Mario never really made sense. With Poke'mon however actually is something comparable to a real world problem that is exploiting animals to violently fight and sometimes kill each other. It's kind of sad that you and others failed to see this rather obvious message.CaptainMarvelous said:I'm impressed after the backlash (no, need to go bigger, absolute public ruination of any public image they may have ever had) of their mario parody they had the balls to not only do another but do another aimed at Nintendo. It's getting to the point Nintie might actually be able to claim libel/slander
Less impressed that it's taking the side of Team Plasma since this implies PETA only want us to stop being cruel to animals by loving, feeding and giving them homes so that PETA can control all the PETA-mon and wage war with Reshiram and that... got a little away from me...
Point still stands
Not even animals... their name literally is pocket monsters... what!? We arn't allowed to make monsters fight in a world where single parents send 10 year olds off to never return?kburns10 said:I wonder just how bored PETA really is to come up with all these parodies. Especially ones that attack DIGITAL treatment of animals.
