Hiya players. Today we’re checking out the latest ridiculous game by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals): Pokemon Black & Blue. This game isn’t your standard Pokemon game, since GameFreak had nothing to do with it. In this game you’re Pikachu, after escaping his trainer, trying to free Pokemon and spread the word about how harmful pet battling is. Yes, that’s right PETA is now trying to save virtual animals.
Pokemon Black & Blue is fairly short, and follows the same playstyle as other Pokemon games. By that I mean that each Pokemon has two useless attacks such as protest and group hug. It’s mostly just Pikachu telling trainers they’re bad people blah, blah, blah. The entire premise of this game just makes me want to /facepalm. I can understand what they’re trying to do in theory, but the fact that they’ve taken these beloved Pokemon, beat and bloodied them, then repackaged it to children is shameful. Shame on you PETA! After this and the Anti-Mario game Super Tanooki Skin 2D they came out with earlier, I honestly hope GameFreak and Nintendo sues them over the copyrights – Not to mention the emotional scaring that kids would get from it.
Play the Game, then you be the judge: Is Pokemon Black & Blue over the line for a child audience? Let us know in the comments below.
