PETA Plays Pokemon

Oddly enough, these little parody games that Peta keep making aren't actually that bad, gameplay wise.
If you skip all the story it's not a bad pokemon rip-off.

gardian06:
who taught PETA flash? who? whoever did you have some explaining to do.

when do the copywrite charges start dropping I mean like hardcore. Pokemon is a registered trade mark so is their likenesses. I mean Nintendo could probably crush PETA financially without even sweating. unless Nintendo is afraid that their Redmond office will get firebombed or something.

EvilChameleon:
This won't stay long with Nintendo's copyright lawyers on the case.

gigastar:
Hey, Nintendo, unliscenced use of your biggest IP right there by an internet hate figure.

Go nuts!

It's a parody that wasn't made for monetary gain (That is, they aren't selling it).

Pokemon: Black and Blue is doubly protected. Nintendo can't do nothin'.

Captcha: Fair Play

Very close Captcha, but it's actually 'Fair Use'.

no. Nintendo does have right to sue. because it is using the name of a property that they have trademarked, and using it without authorization. maybe if it was a small viewing, or such, but they are potentially gaining profit from it through page hits, and requesting donations which is still considered profit. the same way that Happy Birthday is still under copyright, and technically the holder of that should receive royalties every time it is sung.

el_kabong:
I have a game parody in response to PETA's attention-grabbing.

It's called THE GAME: PETA edition.

The rules are as follows:

1. If you think about PETA, you lose.
2. If you talk about PETA, you lose.
3. If you write about PETA, you lose.

I hate you, I just escaped the Game...

...

FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU...

OT: While for once, Peta is kind of right, it is dog fighting for children, when the series itself explores this concept, as Pokemon did in Black and White, your criticism is meaningless.

It'd be more poignant and interesting if it hadn't already been pointed out over the course of the last decade by numerous sources to the point where its mundane. This is like making a "batman is gay" joke. It's been done to death.

If they did not do it for Mario, they wont do it here.

Sadly, the media, for the most part lies. I know, I just "shocked" everyone with that "water-is-wet" idea. Anyway here is how it would go.

Nintendo sues, PETA goes too court, media sides with PETA because that is what liberals will do (Fox will side with no one, but will point out some of the PETA-killing), Nintendo gets bad press, liberals will pay PETA's court costs lawyer fees and however much Nintendo won (because they would win), Nintendo loses all the winning trying to recover from bad pres, and PETA will still be getting more and more donations.

In the end PETA wins because the F***ing wind bags in Hollywood (Paris Hilton, Gorge Clunny, ect) will keep giving too PETA because they never bothered too find out what PETA believes. And when Fox News tells them, well we all know Fox news lies. FYI, no other media outlet will say a D** thing.

And crap like this is why I am losing more and more hope that Americans will wake up and start DEMANDING honesty. Not just from the media, but politicians (ALL politicians), their employers, Banks, Police, Hospitals, Scientists, Everyone in the WORLD.

*steps off soap-box*

It's hilarious because Team Plasma is basically PETA if they had the budget for cool medieval and/or ninja outfits, technologically advanced giant castle super-fortresses, and brooding technicolor-haired leaders.

There's some amusing parallels to draw between PETA and Team Plasma, besides the whole 'animal liberation' thing. Like how they're both a scam.

PETA would sooner kill animals than see them saved. They have no problem with animals getting murdered, so long as humans don't benefit from the murder in some way. Hence why they euthanize the vast majority of animals they get their hands on. They're not actually out to save animals at all.

Likewise, Team Plasma make claims they're going to liberate Pokemon, but, towards the end of Black/White 1, it's revealed that it's all a lie. The pokemon they 'liberate', they actually keep for themselves. And you can see examples of them treating pokemon very poorly throughout the whole game. The only member of Team Plasma who's actually legitimate is N, who bails on the organization at the end.

So, it actually makes perfect sense that PETA would use Team Plasma as heroes in their parody-troll game, and it's amusing to anyone who actually plays the game how much that really says about PETA's own motives.

Ice Car:
You're only 14 years late PETA.

this, so much this.

what ever point Peta was being hypocritical about make, some one else already did a LONG time agao

Pokemon were quite merrily fighting one another constatnly, and the big ones were destroying the world until humans were introduced as a control agent, weren't they? I could have sworn that's one of the game's storylines... Shouldn't PETA be freeing humans from the pokemon world so the pokemon can get back to their natural behaviour; wontonly destroying themselves?

Honestly, in this case I don't see the problem on their part. It's pretty obvious they're not actually going after Pokemon here, just parodying it to try to get the point that there are actual problems out there. I mean, how many groups of geeky friends haven't joked about the fact that Pokemon is basically about child negligence and animal abuse? I really doubt PETA is stupid enough to actually try to protest Pokemon... but then again, this is PETA, so who knows.

Why can't somebody just start a shooting and bombing rampage in all PETA facilities and offices already? It's like watching a little kid enjoy peeling off scabs and laugh as the scabs leave copious amounts of bleeding before licking the blood.

Wow PETA. I think I speak for a bunch of people when I say, "It took you this fucking long to criticize Pokemon?" Seriously, every one and their dog has made this joke already. Did they just see Egoraptor's video for the first time or something?

I mean, really. "Lolz Pokemon is just dog-fighting." was the "Cake is a Lie" of its time.

While it's true I am the master of a bunch of monsters designed to fit in my pocket, be unleashed upon a moment's notice, and are, for profit I might add, meticulously trained to do battle like a pack of hunting wolves, I am actually giving my Pokémon the most beneficial lifestyle they could ever have.
You see, there's this little thing called "happiness". And not only it is an emotion that can be felt by Pokémon, its growth can actually be numerically and statistically charted. There's a number of ways you can foster and elevate happiness, but the most common and most effective way is to embrace the lifestyle you're so quick to shun: embark on a journey to raise your Pokémon into a lean, mean domination machine. Take the time to level it up. Show the effectiveness of your mutually beneficial relationship by fighting towards and earning badges. Feed it vitamin supplements to raise its combat strength and effectiveness. They actually appreciate the fact you'd take the time to do these things. Not only are they content with it, they're positively ecstatic at the idea of becoming your personal unstoppable monster.
So I want you to take the time to think: whenever your Pokémon, that you keep shackled to its inferior life of being excluded from human interaction and forced to never grow from its wild beginnings, is curbstomped by my healthier, happier, stronger, and all around superior buddy, ask yourself as you bathe in its tears and sorrow: who's the real monster?

So Team Plasma PETA, if you're going to decry what I do for being unethical, I might just award you with a little "hypocrite" badge.
And then I will promptly stomp you into the ground and take the badge back as part of my campaign to be the very best. Because that's just how I roll, and according to statistical and empirical evidence, my Pokémon couldn't be happier any other way.

...well, at least this one makes sense. Sure, a it's been said to death, but at least they're finally starting to make some form of...coherency.

So, what can I say that hasn't been said? Talk about PETA and you lose, took you long enough, PETA kills more animals than they save, they're not directly attacking the series etc, etc...well, at least I can offer this. If you want to see what's in the game without playing it, have this:

please tell me i'm not the only one who read that and thought "who Da fuq is professor Juniper"?

two words folks Professor Oak, the senile but kindly old man who sends you on your journey, always

and his grandson, Clitoris (Who's name i helpfully reminded to the senile old professor after he forgot)

But Pokemon taught me to fight for what is right, against people who would want to enslave a friends and travelling buddies. It also taught me to be nice to animals...Clearly I've been playing it wrong...

PETA really seem to like being PR parasites, leeching off of other's fame by being giant douchebag trolls.

Gilhelmi:
PETA are trolling.

Do not feed the trolls.

That is all.

You know the phrase "never attribute to malice what could be attributed to stupidity?"

Just saying.

CaptainMarvelous:
It's getting to the point Nintie might actually be able to claim libel/slander

Not entirely sure you understand the concept here.

Sooo, you're basically playing as a team plasma guy.

peta more annoying and retarded then fox news

Zachary Amaranth:

Hmm, are trolls malice for the sake of malice, or are the trolls just stupid?

It is interesting too contemplate. Not for long because after I learned the truth about "them". I refuse too let them have the honor of letting me think.

My thinking on something is a high honor that I give too those who worthy of my thoughts. Heck, most things are worth of that. "they" are on a very short list.

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.

it's funny, because in black and white, Team Plasma are PETA, they are hypocrites and say all Pokemon should be set free when they want all the best Pokemon for themselves.

This is hilarious, but have PETA no sense of fun?

I saw the title, and my first thought was "Well this'll be good." Turns out I was right, for the sarcastic definition of good. I wonder if Nintendo can pull a McMillen here, and just troll PETA into submission. Wait, McMillen planned that...

PETA is one of the biggest trolls on the intrawebs. Just ignore their stupid thing and move along.

*Scribble scribble scribble*

I'll give Peta this they always give me a cheap laugh cartoon for my blog.

Ice Car:
You're only 14 years late PETA.

Ya they do some crazy parodies and Pokemon has been asking for it forever. We need to stop the violence on flamboyant neon animals! Just because they have more flair doesn't mean that they fight well.

The irony is that Team Plasma only wanted to 'Free' the Pokemon of everyone else, in order to be the rulers of the world by being the only ones able to control any Pokemon. So basically PETA has admitted FINALLY that they're really a secret terrorist organization that wants to take away all our Pokemon...err...MEAT...and take over the world!

Why is anyone taking them seriously? Why?
PETA are the guys who want to kill all house pets, why the hell would someone take them seriously when they talk about animal rights?

kitetsu:

Human lives have value--even genuine animal rights folks and people who think that PETA has any acceptable stances (they don't) or doesn't support terrorism or the harming and killing of humans (they do).

Airsoftslayer93:

Correct. Thankfully, most people care about animal welfare, instead. Animals are not of equal (or even comparable) value to humans nor do they deserve (or can they use, comprehend, or appreciate) "rights". Animals used by humans (as pets, for labor or peaceful entertainment, for food, or for advancing medicine [for both animals and humans]) should be treated with kindness and compassion and should be treated with the respect that animals deserve (i.e., don't kill them or cause them pain for no reason). Also, while not eating meat is nice, it's not a luxury everyone can manage, and veganism is downright silly, if only for the "no honey" aspect of it.

.................

God I love the world we live in. :3

I mean really?

Apparently they do (and then ruin) a pretty good joke with the plasma leader... I haven't actually played either game though, so I dunno =/ friend told me.

So once again PeTA is fighting for relevance in today's world. All this article has shown me is that PeTA continoues to be a bunch of crazy attention whores perpetually screaming "LOOK AT ME!" like the Joker from the Dark Knight, MovieBob may have found material for a future Big Picture episode, and I just found my next costume for Halloween and FanimeCon! That hat is just dapper as fuck, and I'll add some crazy shit, like confetti launchers in my sleeves, speakers to play carnival music, and fireworks launching out of my hat! I'll look like the son of Ash and the Warden from SuperJail!

****minutes taken from the PETA PR meeting****

"Guys I have this really awesome idea how to alienate every child born after 1987 in the U.S. Let's troll pokemon, because people totally know we're kidding........right? Anyway it's tots gonna be the flippin best. I'm talking like this because it's hip JEFF! Jeez get a twitter account already. Anywhos how about prizes. Oh yeah lets roll out the classic video and PETA memorabilia because everyone wants to be part of PETA :D. Right...........?"

****

I bet every single person on the ad team that took part in designing this actually loves the pokemon games and shows (because who da fawk is team plasma unless you still watch it?), and probably played it obsessively as many children did growing up in the early 90's in the U.S. And if they didn't then, well they missed out on the most badass videogame to roll outta japan since the original jumpman. Either way, troll food is served.

EDIT
Lastly, I can't believe they ever expected to get sympathy from the likes of us, that is, the information age. We literally invented the concept of having fun by slicing each others virtual throats. Pokemon is just that, child's play

I wonder just how bored PETA really is to come up with all these parodies. Especially ones that attack DIGITAL treatment of animals.
