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
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
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
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'

at P.E.T.P.I.K.A., 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

is our goal to:
- Outlaw the barbaric practice
of holding Pokemon battles and
- End the use of inhumane
storage devices such as Pokeballs and
- Abolish the use of pet
Pokemon for attack purposes.
many members does P.E.T.P.I.K.A. have?
far, just one. Our name is Danno. For some
reason, we like to refer to ourselves in the
plural. Maybe we were royalty in a previous life.
your organization have a lot of support?
course! Lots of innocent Pokemon back us up
fullheartedly. Um, but since they can't talk
you'll just have to take our word on that.
some guy named Giovanni has expressed an interest
in supporting our cause. He said something about,
"When attack Pokemon are outlawed, only
outlaws will have attack Pokemon. Then Team
Rocket will conquer the helpless populace! Mwa ha
ha ha!" We're not sure exactly what that
anyone oppose you?
Official Pokemon League has taken a rather vocal
stand against us. But since they stand to lose a
lot of profit if people stop buying all their
Pokeballs and other products, this is to be
opposed to us is P.A.U.L.A. (People Against
Unnecessarily Long Acronyns).
can I help P.E.T.P.I.K.A.?
