PETA Condemns Pokemon 'Animal Abuse'

145 posts in this topic

The happiness trainers and pokemon share is one of the worst things I've ever seen. I have never known an animal to be happy in captivity, unless they are severely domesticated (dogs/cats) or fictional (pokemon). Pokemon subconsciously deludes people into believing that animals can be happy living in a pocket-sized ball - or a cage. Also, real animals aren't as bloodthirsty as humans, or indeed, as pokemon. Animals fight each other for survival; in pokemon, battle is glorified, made into a sport. Next thing you know, we'll be having organized dogfights in the streets, every owner trying to "form bonds of friendship and mutual trust" with their dogs. It's saddening, really. :cry:

You must have no faith in humanity. I have played Pokemon for years, Never have I thought about putting my pets in an enclosed space and organizing fights for them. People just aren't that effing stupid! PETA should be focusing on the animals being abused around the world Right Now, not the ones who May Be harmed in the future if everyone goes insane and believes animals are the same as Pokemon.

PETA is just a group of vegetarians and "animal friends" that have nothing better to do that criticize anything that's got to do with animals. Sooner or later they will even tell us that experimentation with bacteria is a form of "animal abuse". Have these idiots ever thought that the vegetables and fruit they love so much to eat(instead of juicy, delicious steaks) are living organims and can feel "pain"(or some form of pain anyway)?

And you'd better take a look at these to see how much these people "love" animals:

You're comparing the intelligence of a fighting dog with that of a fictional Pokemon, however. Again, if dogs were of human intelligence, and could communicate with us, and told us that they wanted to be "the strongest dog in the world!" or something to that effect... Eh? I mean, again, you're acting as though Pokemon are comparable to real-world animals. They aren't. At all. Tell me, do you classify martial arts as forms of human torture, or pet ownership as abuse? Yes, in real life, animals fight for survival; would you prefer then if Pokemon portrayed an accurate picture, of animals (again, Pokemon aren't animals to begin with) fighting, killing, and eating each other? As I understand it, Pokemon don't ever die, they merely "faint". But if you could talk to your dog, and it were of near-human or human-equivalent intelligence, would it not be acceptable to form a bond of friendship with it? Make friends? And if there were indeed a sort of sport, not unlike the simple sparring matches of karate or judo, in which these intelligent dogs elected to fight one another, under the tutelage of its human owner/friend, would it not be acceptable to allow the dogs this pleasure? Again, if you fight against what Pokemon is portraying, you might as well be fighting sport in general. The fact that non-human, fictional creatures are involved is beside the point.

In the world of Pokemon humans and Pokemon were always friends.

The universe was literally created that by a Deity Pokemon. In the literal creation of the Pokemon universe they were created to become stronger together by an all powerful pokemon God called Arceus.

The world was literally created that way.

Seriously guys. Get ya pokemon lore straight.

If you notice Ouija, I have an example of a game series that I played at much earlier ages. Video games have been a part of my entire life & yet I never felt the need to reenact them in the real world. Pokemon was not an original concept either. The idea of catching wild life & using it for your own personal gain is not a new idea in media. People don't say " you shouldn't admire van Gogh because you'll want to chip your ear off if you do."

To say a 13 year old is not as impressionable as a 5 year old is beyond ridiculous. When was last timeyou heard of high school/college student blasting away at their fellow student body? Now when was the last time you heard of an elementary student doing the same? Am I making any sense here?

I played grand theft auto since the first 3 on playstation 1 (London 1969 expansion for those questioning my count). I never had the urge to pick up a prostitute & hack her up with a chainsaw to get my money back. I grew up in Richmond VA where dog fighting is very common but I never took part in the act. Who did? Individuals that grew up being taught by their parents & role models that this was okay & even right.

PETA is really doing anything that they can to be noticed these days. What could've been an incredible organization, has so easily become a media circus sideshow. They well find anything that they can to appear on TV. If I'm wrong, then why did they sponsor pornography that stars only vegetarians/vegans? Who's watching an adult film & thinking, "I sure hope these 'models'aren't eating meat because if they are...well I'm just gonna stop what I'm doing." PETA is a joke beyond jokes. It's a joke without a funny punchline. PETA makes me want to by 50 fur coats & dance around a petting zoo while chanting in a sing song voice, "I'm wearing your mother! I'm wearing your mother!" Trying to guilt people into thinking your way is no way to raise eyebrows. It actually drives people into the opposite direction. People don't like being treated like morons & that's what PETA does to everyone that isn't part of the in-crowd.

I'd also like to point out through out the Pokemon franchise the players and main characters often come across "rivals" who treat Pokemon as nothing but objects and say "Who cares about Pokemon feelings. I only want strong Pokemon " And throughout the entire game you pretty much prove to them the best thing to do is to treat Pokemon right and treating Pokemon as objects is the wrong thing to do.

The main character in the show does the same thing. He usually has a rival whose a jerk for Pokemon and the main character is always like "You should not treat your Pokemon like that!"

And recently while my brother was watching Pokemon(because I totally don't watch that) the main character actually saved a Pokemon(chimchar) from an abusive owner

Throughout the entire world of Pokemon you are pretty much nothing but encouraged to love and treat them right. Lots of Pokemon actually require a high friendship level to evolve.

They encourage it so much friendship is an actual mechanic in the games. Its a countable number. Seriously.

Pokemon also get free healthcare everywhere. No matter what. Seriously. No one will ever deny a Pokemon medical treatment. Ever.

Okay, I've been looking at the PETA sites and I see why there is so much angst provoked by the organisation: I don't know who is in charge of the American branch, but it is very, very different to the branch here in the UK! There is no mention of Pokemon here. If you type it in the search window nothing comes up. Makes me wonder if there's actually someone within the American organisation trying to sabotage it :lol: !

Watching the PETA Pokemon video, I think they're simply trying to draw youngsters in by their love of Pokemon and then present them with some of PETA's policies.

Okay will now I feel bad for jumping your "S word" Ouija. PETA really is a joke here. They use guilt & scare tactics to, on all reality, get more celebrity spokespeople. I'll check out the UK site to see if they're what PETA here should be. It should be about the prevention of animal cruelty & neglect. Not the demoralizing of people who choose to still eat meat, milk cows, harvest honey or what have you. I do think it's wrong to abuse livestock just because they're going to a meal in the future, after all it's true what California says "happy cows, make better beef" or something like that.

I'm no expert but I believe the definition of "psychosis" is the inability to separate fantasy from reality. Every kid watching Wile E. Coyote knows the difference

I agree that is an attempt to force beliefs on to others.. If anyone protests and demands change, it is trying to force others to do it how they like it..

But in the USA and the UK you can't force anyone to do what PETA campaigns about ...... they can't force beliefs onto another person.They can campaign forcefully, but whether people take any notice of what they say or not is entirely up to each individual.

All PETA is doing is attracting attention to situations it's supporters feel should be made public. If people feel uncomfortable about what PETA is highlighting(above and beyond the gimmicky presentation), then it suggests to me that their consciences are being pricked.

My post reads - Anyone who attempts to force beliefs on to others.. That does not say they actually do it...Attempting to do it and actually doing it are not quite the same..

You guys are seriously missing the point. Obviously, Pokemon aren't real. But the fact that they're fictional and completely improbable is the very reason that they're destructive. With the colorful monsters and the magical powers, the games cement themselves in the minds of children (and gullible adults) and subconsciously, they begin to see it as alright. So in a million years, when modern science makes it possible to keep an elephant in a "pokeball" and walk it around with you, the descendants of those children and gullible adults will find no fault.

Just arguing PETAs point, since no one else seems to be doing it..

We're talking about 1s and 0s here.

Rumour has it that the next campaign will be against Fraggle Rock. Those Doozers didn't actually enjoy work, it was just culturally imprinted through merciless oppression under inhumane conditions. And don't get me started on Rod Hull! No wonder poor emu was always so narky, that sicko had his hand up it's cloaca for years :(

idk i never met a kid when i was younger that thought pokemon was real, but if the show is so bad then let the parents censor it from their kids.

Dude Pokemon is the Most Censored Show on ******* TV. In all of my Years watching it i have never seen any ******* Blood on the Pokemon, or the Human. Not even a Bloody Nose. Brock was Supposed to be like Master Roshi or Quagmire yet he never gets Laid. The show doesn't need to be censored any more then it is.

What kind of 'animal' is Pokemon? Where does it live and where is its normal habitat? I think it is just a costume not a living animal. How about spending some of the resources for feeding and housing the homeless humans as well as actual living animals that are mistreated and need help? The whole thing is making a joke out of a very serious issue and I am sure it offends more people than many believe. I love animals and I have seen some mistreated and I have also seen children and the elderly equally mistreated. This sort of idiocity does more harm to animal rescue organizations than it helps.Animals should not be used as entertainment in zoos and circuses. They are living feeling beings not carton characters and more harm is done to animals by encroaching and destroying their natural habitats for the sake of money or for human habitation. Kids are not that dumb that they do not know the difference between a cartoon character and a true animal. Shame on PETA in the US, as they are trying to make a joke out of something very serious that is animal abuse!

really PETA?...If PETA wants to be taken seriously, they should start off by getting rid of all those almost completely nude pictures of celebrities nobody cares about and actually put pictures of what they are about "saving animals".I dont remeber the last time I saw a picture of a half naked man or woman and making me go "well that right there just changed my mind about saving the animals"....I love animals and PETA just isn't doing much for me anymore.

You know, after thinking about this a bit more, I realized... The fact that PETA had to manufacture fake versions of Pokemon depicting abusive behavior should simply demonstrate all the more that there isn't abuse in Pokemon. If there were, they would just point it out in the actual games, and not fabricate grotesque straw-men.
