Welcome to the former forums for DidYouKnowGaming?! In March of 2013, VGFacts was launched and this community was merged into the new forums there. These forums were originally taken offline at that time but I brought them back as an archive while transferring sites to the new server. Registrations and all interaction (posting, editing, moderation, etc.) are disabled but everything can still be read. If you're interested in joining the community, head on over to https://www.vgfacts.com/forums/ and join there but I've always thought it was important to preserve a site's roots so these forums will forever be available in this read-only state. Enjoy!

I know it's just a theory, but I really would not put it past PETA to use it as an argument.

That's just a theory.He could have left his Raticate in his PC or something.Plus, this whole PETA thing is stupid.
1:It's fantasy, not reality.
2:Pokemon are still animals in a way, they battled for territory and food way before humans even existed.
3:Some Pokemon don't want to battle, if their trainers are forcing them then the Pokemon would try to rebel and run away (yes they CAN run away whenever they want to).It has been showcased in the anime that most of the Pokemon are friends with humans (and when the humans are evil the Pokemon become evil too, but not abused or physically corrupted in any way, just comedic relief evil).
4:Trainers earn the respect of Pokemon by showing them their skill in Pokemon battles and their care.So the whole "Pokemon hate battles" thing is stupid and it shows PETA's ignorance very well.

So yeah...FUCK YOU PETA AND I HOPE YOU GET KILLED BY A MAGIKARP (they deserve a humiliating death)!!!

I think wishing death upon PETA is one of the worst things you can wish for. PETA, while they can be complete Nidokocks- they do work for the ethical treatment of animals to inform the general public about how horribly animals are treated and want to make a change(and have done so).

Like I said before, PETA attacking Pokemon is dumb because you can't push real world values and morals on a fictional universe (same with racism and sexism in games). Pokemon can easily be seen as fictional creature baiting
"You find a random Rattata who is captured, taken away from their family, habit and lifestyle and force to endure pain so a human can gain a shiny badge". Again, you don't see it like that because it's not real.

There is a difference between "trying to inform the general public about how horribly animals are treated" and "Wasting everybody's time with FUCKING FICTION!!!".They should get off their lazy asses and actually DO SOMETHING!

RE: Oh Peta, you so crazy.
PETA is just like Westboro Baptist Church. They are using their 1st amendment right to voice their logic in the form of a Pokemon game to show others the POSSIBILITY of animal cruelty. I do not agree with this method nor do I agree with PETA because I know they kill more animals than they save. Plus they need to do some research because Ash telling Pikachu that he never cared about Pikachu or any other Pokemon is just facepalm on their part. They could have used ANY other trainer (Hell use Charmander's previous trainer, before Ash found him, as an example instead) because EVERY episode Ash shows plenty of love and care for his Pokemon and others as well. That just proves PETA are assholes or lack the will to research before doing something.
