Pokémon X & Y: PETA targets series again with new flash game

By Dave Cook, Friday, 11 October 2013 10:11 GMT

Pokémon X & Y is out tomorrow and naturally, animal right group PETA is on their case. The game is called Pokemon: Red White and Blue, and it asks us all to think about how we’d treat Pokémon if they were real in our world, completely forgetting that the game is a work of fantasy.

GoNintendo has embedded the flash game here if you want to check it out. You can see the opening statement above.

It touches on Pokémon as slaves and features some McDonald’s mascots for some reason.

See what you think above. I’m out.

You can read my new Pokémon X & Y interview with Game Freak director Junichi Masuda here. We talk about a lot of interesting Poké-related stuff.
