People for the Ethical Treatment of Pokemon


What we stand for

Because the Pokemon cannot speak for themselves. We are the spokespersons for these poor creatures, who if they could only talk, would tell you of the horrible injustices committed against them.

Imagine that you're a Pokemon. Pretend, say, that you're a Nidoran, happily living out your life in Viridian forest. Then one day, while you're minding your own business, a strange human comes into the forest. He sends out one of his Pokemon slaves to beat you to a pulp. After you've been pummelled too senseless to resist, the human tosses a metal ball at you. For the next several hours to several days, you find yourself trapped within its confines. Sheer loneliness envelopes you.

When at last you're released from the Pokeball, you must obey the uncaring human's commands. The human then expects you to fight against your fellow creatures, to aid him in enslaving more innocent Pokemon!

But that's not the worst of it. If you're not particularly useful to your human master, he'll probably put you into storage. You'll be converted to mere data, and sent online into the computer of some guy named Bill. There you may spend weeks, months, even years in this cyberprison, susceptible to computer viruses and accidental deletion. And if your master gives up his "trainer" lifestyle or forgets about you, you may be doomed to spend eternity in Bill's computer.

And why does the human do this to you? All for mere sport, just to gain some worthless badges and maybe the pointless title of "Pokemon Master." Does he have to endure the suffering you face in endless battles? No! He just barks commands at you, and if you dont' fight well enough, it's back in the Pokeball for you.

Here at PETP, it is our goal to stop such cruelty. We believe Pokemon are happiest when left in their natural habitat, spared from human indignities. However, if Pokemon are taken as pets, they should be treated as equals and not forced to fight battles or do silly tricks for humans. They should not be forced to evolve with evolution stones or physically altered with drugs or vitamins. And they should never, ever, have to endure the torment of being stuffed inside a little metal ball that's several times smaller than themselves!

I stab them once in a place that won't kill them instantly then I watch them bleed to death.

^lol. Thank you for making my day, sir.

Also... I need some hard evidence that Pokemon don't enjoy battling. Of couse EVERY Pokemon might not like to battle, but I feel like it might be fun for them... ya know, like sports are for us?
