They protest pokemon because despite looking fairly innocent on the surface it's essentially about the enslavement of animals and the subsequent forcing of said animals into brutal and lethal fights. It's essentially a game about c0k fighting. Not saying I agree with PETA just saying it's not as inane as it first seems. Although I will say that anyone who is misguided enough to think that video games will automatically cause people to mimick crimes but then decides to fight a crusade against pokemon (rather than GTA for example) is somewhat lacking morally. They decide that pokemon is the worst offender because aparently c0k fighting is worse than killing hookers.
