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.

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag will let players engage in a spot of whaling – that is, hunting down whales with harpoons. Animal rights group PETA has slammed the game for the treatment of our underwater allies.

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.

This Saturday, April 11, World of Warcraft players may notice some in-game activists over in Northrend due to PETA staging a protest over clubbing baby fur seals in the Howling Fjord zone.
The group’s taken umbrage to bashing fake critters over the head, and the protesters plan on PvP-ing anyone that stands in between them and the virtual cuties.
There’s more after the break, but just so you know, originally PETA tried to get this part of the game banned.
