Battle fast-food customers and other baddies who are out to eat Pokémon in PETA's new parody game that goes after Nintendo for its Pokémon Happy Meal promotions!
PETA's new game, Pokémon: Red, White, & Blue—An Unofficial PETA Parody, makes the point that by using faves such as Pokémon as Happy Meals toys, McDonald's tricks kids into believing that Happy Meals are made up of cuteness and fun, when nothing could be further from the truth!
PETA's point? If Pokémon came to our world, they would likely be horrified to discover how we treat animals—and we'd probably exploit them in the same way.
Challenging the cute, sanitized portrayal of the lives of farmed animals that McDonald's promotes through its Pokémon Happy Meals, PETA's game reveals the reality and shows kids what really happens to chickens who are killed for McDonald's.
At the slaughterhouses of McDonald's chicken suppliers, for example, chickens are hung upside down and have their throats cut while they are still conscious and many are immersed in tanks of scalding-hot water while they are still alive and able to feel pain.
After their bodies are turned into McNuggets, they're sold to kids with the promise of a cute toy—such as a plastic Pokémon.
