So PETA is now protecting virtual creatures.

It seems that the issue that they are bringing up is "Children learned about dominance rather than compassion. While Pokemon faced the worst abuses, children started bullying each other." Personally I feel that the Pokemon games and TV show do a good job of showing that training a Pokemon is more about loving and caring for them rather than treating them badly just to make them strong.

I wanted to know what other people think of this? Is their argument justified? Is Pokemon really teaching children a bad lesson? and what do PETA hope to gain from this?

Like someone pointed out, this is a duplicate thread. I can't flag you because of the karma system (I really should get to PM'ing the mods), but yeah, no sense in having two threads so recent with the very same topic.

I find the Pikachu with the "I Support Team Plasma" sign to be very funny since you found out at the end of Black and White that Plasma actually wanted to control all the Pokemon for evil.
