Pokémon parody game draws gamer attention to PETA

By Brenna Hillier, Tuesday, 9 October 2012 03:23 GMT

PETA has put together a Pokémon parody game in which Pikachu must throw off the chains of enslavement and make a bid for freedom. You can check it out here but be warned; it’s actually a little bit confronting, even though the creatures in question clearly do not exist. The animal rights activist group used Mario’s Tanooki suit and “Super Tofu Boy” in a similar parody-game campaigns to draw attention to its more serious real-world activities.
