PETA's "Pokémon Black & Blue" Parody Game Wants to Free 'Em All

People for the Ethical Treatment of Pokémon?

Remember when PETA attacked Mario for his savage use of Tanooki fur? Well, the organization is back just in time for the release of Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 with a Pokémon Black & Blue parody game. We would embed the game here, but we'd rather save you from the woes of auto-playing music.

So yea, obviously PETA has issue with catching 'em all, so in Black & Blue you gotta free 'em all! 

 

The amount of time that Pokémon spend stuffed in pokéballs is akin to how elephants are chained up in train carts, waiting to be let out to "perform" in circuses. But the difference between real life and this fictional world full of organized animal fighting is that Pokémon games paint rosy pictures of things that are actually horrible.

 

While PETA no doubt loves the publicity this provides, they'd probably rather we not mention that Pokémon Black & White 2 is in stores now. Did anyone pick it up, or are you all too mesmerized by Black & Blue's thrilling take on the series?
