Remember last time with the tanookie suit? PETA actually came out and said that they were not bothered by it but used it to stir up controversy and draw attention to themselves. This is the same thing.
All that and more: pokemon can refuse to fight outright, and those who do forfit the match. This is how Ash lost in his first League tourney; Charizard decided it just didn't want to fight, and that was the end of that. Pikachu also refused to fight Misty's pokemon in her Gym. Of course we can't forget the episode in which James bought a Magicarp, treated it poorly, then when it evolved into a Garydos it turned on him.Chaosmancer said:The last battle was quite bad because of the fact that it is completely wrong in the opening speech because Ash did show concern for Pikachu (at least from what I can remember (wasn't there an episode where he tried to stop Pikachu from fighting, except Pikachu kept going... or maybe that is a completely irrelevant anime, maybe I am thinking of Fate/Stay Night, but I seem to remember there being something like that)), plus Pikachu was never in his Pokeball, and I seem to remember an episode (the one with the Squirtle Squad in it) where Ash eventually convinced Squirtle to let him dash to the Poke Mart to get a super potion... then there was the early episode where he stole Misty's bike to get to the Poke Centre.

Ignoring it has not proven effective so far.
Yeah people keep saying this on the comments section. What the flying fuck?! How could they possibly find that a good idea? Like.. even within their warped mind-frame-work?Daaaah Whoosh said:I thought PETA was for the euthenization of domesticized animals, not the freeing of them.
Do not confuse veganism with P.E.T.A. They are no friend of yours, if you care for the wellbeing of animals.Airsoftslayer93 said:If you all really cared about animal rights you would all be vegans and would support PETA, if you can honestly say that you value the flavour of meat above the suffering of animals, then I will not only respect you, but also call you an abhorant human being.

Wow, I didn't even think of that! Doubtful that PETA did any sort of research to find out the actual name is "Pocket Monsters".Elementary - Dear Watson said: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.
Not only does PETA know that, but they deliberately draw attention to it in the game itself and point out that the founder of Team Plasma is an evil hypocrite.weirdguy said:they do know that team plasma is just a front for a terrorist organization, don't they
they don't even understand that they're making fun of themselves there
I hope I quoted this right. Without getting into the biochemical details. it's not amino acids, all 20 of those are in everything you eat that has "protein." Its specific fats and proteins. A large grouping of trans fats, (fight cancer) omega fats (coat the mylin layers of your nerve cells for faster impulses AKA you think faster) and a whole list of specific fats, proteins, and fat-sugar protein-sugar derivatives that are part of your everyday cell metabolic functions that only are found in good ole meat. Now of course a full grown adult can create a complex diet of beans, fruits, vege's and other supplements to create the molecules found here. But my main issue is allowing children who need these proteins, fats, etc and are too immature to deal with the complexities of a vegan diet for growing bodies. The older you are when you make the decision to stop eating meat the better off you are. And of course with all things in life gluttony creates poor health.bravetoaster said:Specifically, what amino acids are you referring to? I'm not a vegan or knowledgeable about nutrition and my wife's not around to confirm/debunk/clarify your claim for me.
If we're talking on a scale of hundreds/thousands of years with "recently" then the same is true for protein and fat; our ancestors didn't have supermarkets, planes and trains and boats capable of transporting food thousands of miles across countries and oceans. Given that our brains require sugar to function, however, it's a safe bet that we've been eating carbohydrates pretty consistently throughout time (although it's also likely that, historically, we had a much more varied diet than the standard American diet).
Regarding fats--if you change "need" to "can use", then you're correct. As it is, you're mistaken: http://www.fi.edu/learn/brain/fats.html#fattyacids (if you don't feel like following the link: you can get essential fatty acids through vegetables, nuts, and various plants/plant oils.)
