This has gone way to far Peta! I agree that animal abuse is wrong, Its a sad and cruel thing and anyone who commits such a crime should be punished, but leave pokemon out of this! Pokemon does not support animal abuse! Have you guys ever played the game? Pokemon is a game about raising VIRTUAL NON-EXISTENT MONSTERS and helping them to become stronger and create a STRONGER BOND with your pokemon! As you progress through the game, you start to love the little guys! Seriously, this is blowing things way out of proportions and this is unnecessary. Everyone signing this Petition today is asking you to take down the game and leave Pokemon alone. Pokemon games don't cause animal abuse, Stupidity, Cruelness and other factors do.
