Chris loves Pokémon games. He’s been playing them since he was 10 or 11. And he thinks the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are unethically treating his favourite gaming franchises.
In the video here, he defends Pokémon and attempts to obliterate PETA’s argument that Nintendo’s popular franchises celebrates the subjugation of animals. PETA made their case in Pokémon: Black & Blue, a web game released on Monday. Chris makes his case now.
A sampling of his spirited defence:
Let me say to you right now, PETA, I love Pokémon. I would never hurt a fly. I would never hurt an animal. I would never hurt a dog. And I promise you that your misguided attempts will be met with nothing but contempt, because I stand against you — I and a million others — I and all my friends here: Snivy, Tepig, Oshawott, Pikachu. We stand in unity against you PETA, because you are sick and wrong.
As Chris notes, a lot of what PETA is doing is glomming onto the the release of a new game to promote their agenda. That’s not going to keep a Pokémon Trainer from firing back.
