PETA launch Pokémon parody Black & Blue.

PETA are at it again, this time targeting Pokémon to get the message to children about animal cruelty and testing.

Yes, as a protest to the release of Pokémon Black & White 2, PETA have created their own parody of the game, Black & Blue, as they feel the Pokémon series 'paints a rosy picture of what amounts to thinly veiled animal abuse'. 

Sadly though, they haven't done it in the most tasteful way, choosing to depict Pokémon as badly abused animals with needles sticking out of their heads and entire bodies skinned.

The parody starts with Pikachu breaking free to team up with Oshawott, Snivy and Tepig who must battle their way against various characters until finally getting to Ash, who reveals that he enjoys using Pokémon to make money off of children (despite being 12 himself, it would seem).

The game aimed at young children contains lots of graphic content, including a video from Nurse Joy showing a cow being hung from a ceiling and getting its throat slit open. 

Whilst PETA may have the best intentions, to stop animal cruelty and testing, they certainly haven't gone the right way about it and have already insulted many people. 

This isn't the first time PETA have gone to extreme lengths to get their message across. What do you make of all this? Do you think they have a point? Or is it all a bit silly considering a lot of Pokémon can barely be classed as animals anyway?
