Remember how PETA made a faux-Pokemon game insinuating that Nintendo promotes animal cruelty through Pokemon? Well Nintendo has issued a statement.

This is what PETA had to say on the matter

“Pokémon are treated as unfeeling objects and used for such things as human entertainment and as subjects in experiments. The way that Pokémon are stuffed into pokéballs is similar to how circuses chain elephants inside railroad cars and let them out only to perform confusing and often painful tricks that were taught using sharp steel-tipped bullhooks and electric shock prods.”

and Nintendo’s reply, well…

“Nintendo and The Pokémon Company take the inappropriate use of our products and intellectual property seriously.”

Haha! Go on Nintendo, take their asses to court! Awesome!
