Well, obviously that wasn't the intent, but it is a pretty humorous observation to look at every once and awhile.

I mean, you go around and collect animals and shove them in balls and don't talk to them ever, except when you're barking orders at them that they're expected to follow obediently. Then, on top of that, you use them to fight other people who do the exact same thing, and when they lose, you mug them.

It's like glorified virtual cockfighting!

=D!!!

It kind of does. x] As Warlin said, I'm sure the creator didn't intend it that way, but it is forcing animals to fight each other, and of course trapping and neglecting them...of course, maybe they are kept in some sort of stasis or something in the pokeball, I dunno. But yeah...you capture them, subdue them, and force them to fight each other. Good God. That is awful, isn't it? x] haha. Wow...I did always think Pokemon seemed a little cruel, but not to this extent. o_o

When Pokemon battle, they feel unbearable pain when hit by their opponents. Then both parties have to recover in the Pokemon Center just like an ill or injured human patient recovers in a hospital - in agony and suffering. The Pokemon Center is just a nicer name for a hospital. Pokemon have feelings and should not require their trainer's permission to enjoy life, as opposed to being trapped inside a Pokeball. Plus, a trainer has to hurt a Pokemon in order to obtain it, and doing so is no better than pitting them in battles. Pokemon food is so monotonous - they should eat real food!

Pikachu is never in the pokeball. He's on Ash's shoulder.

I can propa imagine the 'gawd' part

hahahaaaaaaaa!!

No but in all seriousness

what we do to pokemon is not animal cruelty

Pokemon actually benefit from being our pokemon. After days of hard training and getting stronger, more powerfull they manage to evolve. In the wilderness they would not be able to do that, but with our help pokemon are able to evolve and better themselves. Poketrainers always keep potions and other medical supplies with them to make sure their pokemon is never badly injured, with the worst damage always being a K.O. They get to see sights and wonders they never would have seen in the wilderness.

I'm all for pokemon - being the master!!!
