Of course PETA has created a Pokemon parody, timing its release with Pokemon Black 2 and White 2’s launch:
“The amount of time that Pokémon spend stuffed in pokéballs is akin to how elephants are chained up in train carts, waiting to be let out to ‘perform’ in circuses. But the difference between real life and this fictional world full of organized animal fighting is that Pokémon games paint rosy pictures of things that are actually horrible.”
PETA’s Marketing Innovations director Joel Bartlett adds, “Games such as Pokémon send kids the wrong message that exploiting and abusing those who are defenseless is acceptable when it’s not. But with Pokémon Black and Blue, children can experience the great feeling that comes from saving others from harm.”
So, people who pick up Pokemon Black 2 or White 2 and connect online before November 12 will receive Genesect, a mythical Bug- and Steel-type Pokemon that’s been restored from a 300-million-year-old fossil. It features a unique move called Techno Blast, and its power levels are based on the foe it’s battling.
As prguitarman’s comic points out, though, maybe giving a new trainer the cannon-wielding cyborg mantis thingy isn’t the greatest idea. Also, I’m unsure why the trainer is just straight-up copping a feel in the first panel.

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 release for DS today (as does Pokémon Dream Radar on the 3DS eShop)!
Here’s a helpful guide from Gotta Catch’em All on the differences between the two versions, to help you decide which copy you want to get if your budget is limited. Serebii has more details comparing the two editions.
“Discover the new in 2” in Pokemon Black/White commercials. Talking to Eric about these this afternoon – we often commune over Pokemon videos, you know – he told me he was reminded of Hammer’s “2 Legit 2 Quit” as well as Chuck Woolery’s classic “We’ll be back 2 and 2” signoffs from Love Connection.
Two more commercials! They’re actually different, even though they start and end the same. While watching these, I realized I don’t ever see game commercials on TV, and I wondered why. Is it because I don’t watch children’s programming? Then I remembered: I don’t actually have TV service at all.
