Oh, like Poke'mon is the only anime out there that pits fictional monsters equivalent to our "animals" against each other in brutal combat.

I am extremely concerned about children pitting their fire breathing dogs and lightning shooting mice together in a fight for the death.

Are you crazy??? It is just a game. A very, very fun game to play. It's crazy people who over exaggerate it.

Doesn't PETA have anything better to target? Perhaps like slaughterhouses or food manufacturing plants?

Its just a game, its not like kids are going to be training pigeons to fights each other because of a game. PETA is just always taking things to far like when they got mad at assassins creed for showing that they killed a dolphin but neglected the fact that they're killing humans in the game. What's funny to me is that it seems animals are important than human lives to them.

people shouldn't say things like "pokemon is animal abuse" unless they know what the hell they're talking about.

pokemon like fighting for their trainers and building bonds with them. that is said MANY times throughout the pokemon games and anime.

So I was searching around the internet and I came across a blog about pokemon and animal abuse. To sum up everything: it is animal cruelty because it forces animals to fight and it's a bad influence on children. Obviously this is non-sense but it got more ridiculous when I read that it was originally PETA that 'waged war' on Pokemon for virtual animal cruelty



AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Pokemon aren't even actual animals. This is ridiculous.

A similar situation arose a few years ago with popular FPS shooters such as Cod and Halo. People claimed those games taught kids violence and that they caused violent outbursts.

Recent research on the subject tells us this is all wrong. In fact, those types of games seem to be good stress relievers to boot.

I played Pokemon when I was a child and never thought to abuse my pets in the same manner, mostly because I knew none of them could breath fire. Not to mention that Pokemon are depicted as creatures who love to battle anyway.

Even if the game were more realistic, the research would still suggest that PETA has no idea what they are talking about. Of course, we already knew that.
