Alright, let’s face it, no one really takes PETA seriously anymore, or at all, not really sure if anyone ever did. And when they started doing flash game video game parodies, I think they turned from “Protest Group Trying To Be Taken Seriously” to some sort of online, flash game meta Carrot Top. Their latest attempt aims it’s uninformed little claws at Pokemon, not surprising as they’ve attacked a Nintendo franchise before, but surprising they haven’t gotten to it sooner. In the game you take the roll of a beaten Pikachu, fed up with the abuse he suffers from his trainer, and finally turning against the cruel tyranny of the human race against Pokemon. You mainly do battles against trainers directly using one of four Pokemon (Pikachu and the Black/White starters), each Pokemon featuring two attacks they have from the game, and two “PETA-ified” attacks, such as Protest, Educate and Hug. The Pokemon fight their way through four trainers, starting with Cheren from Pokemon Black/White (who looks like he’s become an alcoholic since the end of the game), up to Ash Ketchum, who features a cynical and quite dubious looking circus ring leader outfit. Between battles there are cutscenes in which you encounter other Pokemon or Pokemon sympathizers (really, only Nurse Joy), who unlock for you special PETA approved videos. Needless to say it’s a PETA game, it shoves their ideals in your face because “humans are bad”, but it’s just so ridiculous it’s actually a little entertaining.
