PETA's Pokémon Black and Blue

Pokémon Black and White 2 are out this week… but who cares about that? Pokémon Black and Blue is free to play! This game is made by the infamous PETA and is a commentary on the dog fighting like world that is the world of Pokémon.

PETA gets a lot of flack for their sensationalist shenanigans but this time I think they’re pretty much right on the money. The game insinuates that Pokémon are basically owned as slaves who are inhumanely forced to fight each other against their wishes. Ash Ketchum is basically the Michael Vick of Pokémon. In this version you don’t play as a trainer but as Pikachu and other Pokémon who are liberating Pokémon from their evil trainers. This game is obviously made by people who are big fans of Pokémon with all of the great references in it from Mudkips to the parallels between PETA and Team Plasma. Check out the game that’s embedded below.
