News Nintendo Responds to PETA's Pokémon Game
posted on 2012-10-20 04:31 BST
Video game conglomerate Nintendo responded to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)'s Pokémon parody game with an official statement on Thursday. The company stated in an official press release, “Nintendo and the Pokémon Company take the inappropriate use of our products and intellectual property seriously.”
The PETA browser game Pokémon Black & Blue launched on October 1 with the following tagline: "For generations, Pokémon have suffered at the hands of their cruel trainers. Help PETA free Pikachu and his Pokémon friends as they struggle for Pokémon liberation!"
PETA launched a similar campaign with Nintendo character Mario in their "Mario Kills Tanooki" game last year. Nintendo responded to campaign followed by PETA's official statement that the game was "tongue-in-cheek".

If this film causes more permanent damage than most Pokémon outings, that's wholly the fault of its main character, Keldeo.
On the whole, The Battle for Doldrey is a mixed bag of strengths and weaknesses. While that may be true of most things, there are few places where those lines are so clearly drawn as in this film.
As long as you take it for the puffery that it is, do not tire easily of its gimmicky raison d'entre, and are not offended by the implication that the perfect woman can only be a man, Otomen is a fun manga series.
