PETA: Pokémon Are Not Ours To Use Or Abuse

PETA have released a statement which claims Pokémon sends out the wrong message to children and they’ve compared how Pokémon are stuffed into pokéballs to how circuses chain elephants to rail road cars. They said this in a bizarre statement which claims Pokémon encourages animal cruelty. You can read PETA’s statement below:

“Much like animals in the real world, Pokémon are treated as unfeeling objects and used for such things as human entertainment and as subjects in experiments. The way that Pokémon are stuffed into pokéballs is similar to how circuses chain elephants inside railroad cars and let them out only to perform confusing and often painful tricks that were taught using sharp steel-tipped bullhooks and electric shock prods …if PETA existed in Unova, our motto would be: Pokémon are not ours to use or abuse. They exist for their own reasons. We believe that this is the message that should be sent to children.”
