I talked to an NPC somewhere, and she said something about how some pokemon prefer to be with humans and not in the cruel dangerous wild. I find it hilarious how she said that & how it's picking at animal rights groups & people who are against caging "wild" animals. I agree with the quote, a lot of people always say things like "the beautiful tiger deserves to be running free in the wild like how it should be". A lot of animals do not want to be in the wild, it's dangerous and a sad life. They could be killed by rival competition, always fearing their lives and a gash wound could be lethal, infection, there are no hospitals for it. Under human companionship a wild animal would have all these things, food all the time, health care and no predators/poachers.
If Gen 5 had made fun of PETA, I would be okay with this. Not only are they ridiculous for wanted an end to the domestication of any animal, they're also massive hypocrites. PETA euthanizes 85% or so of the animals that ever pass into their care. At the core, PETA and Plasma only share minute qualities.
