Do you think gen V handled the moral issues of pokemon fighting well?

Gen five is notable for addressing the issue of the morality of battling pokemon with each other, which can be said to resemble "dog fighting" or "male chickens, which are called roosters(the opposite of the hen a female chicken) fighting".

However, I think that it should have ignored it. Even though fighting animals may be morally reprehensible, it's a video game, and it doesn't really matter in the context. "That's just how things are" probably would have sufficed, as the issue has just been brought more the the spotlight, but not really resolved or concluded.

I think it was good that they handled the issue, but I really don't like HOW they did it. Because in the end, it wasn't much of a moral issue anyway because they were just using pokemon to rule the world in the end. This pretty much makes it so it's not a moral issue anymore, but more on a, we must stop the bad guys who abuses pokemon and uses them to take over the world.

Sorta? I'm glad they adressed the issue, but the execution wasn't exactly...great.
I guess it's because the only one trying to liberate pokémon for real was N...

You barely have your first badge 5 minutes and already they have team members acting like ass hats toward pokémon. Take a guess.

And while Ghetsis is obviously up to something and portrayed as a bit of a genius for his gambits, his silver tongued-ness would have been a lot better if they didn't have those utterly stupid moments where he slips up in his speech. That kind of ruined him for me.

Yeah they were never going to be able to make a serious point since they still have to sell the games on how awesome having your own Pokemon are.

"If you battle hard enough with your pokemon friends eventually man and pokemon will understand each other and the oppression of pokeballs will be over."

NOPE.
