Let's no forget they (PETA) killed tens of thousands of animals themselves. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NiNepdcBtSw

"The real PETA -- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals -- has a sense of humor too..."

I've never seen any evidence to that effect, this article notwithstanding.

I think being an idiot is a requirement to join PETA. We have a PETA person here at work and she runs outside every day with a big jug of water for all the wild animals out back that have lived around here for far longer than she's been around. It's funny when she goes running out there when it's raining out. Somehow the animals manage to survive on their own on weekends and holidays...

So... I just thought PETA should know that I'm eating 2 pork chops while reading this and I don't feel the slightest bit ashamed.

I wasn't aware that Pokemon made people have the urge to catch wild animals and pit them against each other for gym badges (Gary Oak should be ashamed of himself, that b****rd has ten of them!).

This is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. Maybe they should focus on real-life animals, not imaginary ones in a video game. I would be ashamed to be associated with PETA after seeing something like this. I can see a cease and desist letter coming from Nintendo in their future. Does anyone actually take PETA seriously anymore? If not, it's because of crap like this.

I would be ashamed to be associated with PETA after stuff that happened before this :P. They are kind of backwards: Their rather extreme means of protest (like grotesque videos, also apparently starting a porn site) do not match up with the ethics of the message they are trying to send about animal rights. People who care about animals, should be good natured humans. This Pokemon video does not reflect their good-naturedness (if they have it).

Bad PETA, BAD!

Honestly, i thought the PETA version of the game much more violent towards the Pokemon then the regular version... Pikachu got hit with a bloody bat, and then choked with a spiked collar.

I heard that Nintendo may finally sue them for defamation or something of the sort. PETA can claim "parody" all the want, but this isn't a parody by a long shot.

Not "by a long shot"? you need to look up the definition of parody. Just because it isn't very good doesn't mean they shouldn't be allowed to do it. PETA always makes themselves look bad when they do this type of thing. They get a lot of attention, but it seems to always be mostly negative. Let them hang themselves.

I see the dumbs**ts at peta are at it again.. hey've not had enough spotlight so they come up with something to make them "relevant" again with some spotlight. They had good intentions but doing stunts like this makes them appear more like trolls and clueless bullies that would rather human beings suffer in favor of a spoiled house pet being 'set free' rather than be a pet even if it's not being abused.

Here in Colorado that's our feeling toward elk!

Are they still at this? Shouldn't they actually be fighting animal abuse instead of posting useless craps like this?

Ironically enough, these are actually more violent than the targeted games. So I guess Peta actually wants show they're more harm than good.

They are picking the wrong fight now... there are millions of Pokemon fans that are going to rip them to shreds!

I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

Couldn't agree more.

Not extreme enough, if jackwads out there are still being cruel to animals. I'd pay plenty to PETA if they hosted a version of the movie The Condemned, and take 10 people convicted of animal abuse, put them on an island, and watch them fight to the death.

I'm sorry, but peta just annoys the hell out of me.

Cleaver is right, that's annoying as Hell.

Our bad, it's been fixed.

Mind embedding the game after the break? It has annoying music that autoplays when maximumpc.com is loaded.

That was my bad. I actually swapped out the embedded game for a pic instead, for that very reason, but neglected to do the same on the homepage. All fixed.
