How would you like to be locked in a tiny space and let out only by your “trainer,” who forces you to fight your friends? Sounds pretty awful, right? Well, strangely, this is the concept of one of the most popular games out there, and even weirder, these cuddly, little guys have a huge online fan base that loves them—especially the cute red-cheeked “champion,” Pikachu. That’s right—we’re talking about Pokémon!

Help peta2 get freedom for the Pokémon in peta2’s new game, Pokémon Black and Blue.

Screen grab from peta2's free online Pokemon parody game

Many of us at peta2 grew up playing and watching Pokémon, and we love that the Pokémon Black and White series has started talking about “Pokémon rights” but with all that talk the Pokémon are still imprisoned at the end of the day. So in our lighthearted parody game we poke fun at the original Pokémon games (remember we <3 Pokémon, too), but we also give the Pokémon the platform they should have had in Black and White, and hope people think about how we treat animals in the real world.

Just like dogs and other animals, Pokèmon have unique personalities and want to be loved and play with their friends, not be forced to fight them. Never thought about it that way, huh?

Check out the game now and let us know what you think!

    Are you serious? PETA, you are attacking innocent video games and cartoons saying “IT PROMOTES ANIMAL CRUELTY!!” When there are actual animals out there, dying, suffering, and being abused. I hate PETA so much.

      We work every single day to help the billions of animals out there who are suffering (check out our “Take Action” page for tons of ways you can help right now: peta2.com/actions/). This game is just a different way to get our message exposed to a whole new audience. :)

    urgggg look stuff up peta2, the man/guy who made pokemon didn’t make they die, or want kids to hurt or kill, i’ve played most of the games and (ok a few ‘pokemon deaths”) you heal your pokemon, and raise them, yes it’s ‘fighting’ but come on….and it’s a game, it’s not real!! you put people off!

    I like ‘group hug’ attack. Pikachū gave a loving embrace. Haha. That’s the way to fight!
    I think the parody is fair enough. I mean, the series has had to get into that a few times, notably in the first film when myutsū took the position that pocket monsters should not interact with humans because he was abused.
    I like Plasma-dan. But I never really played the Fifth Generation games anyway. :d
