PE2K brings you the latest trans-dimensional reports from our affiliates at VULPIX News in the Pok√©mon World.
Representatives of Team Plasma held a press conference in bustling Nimbasa City today. A leading official, whose identity remains unknown, has declared that Team Plasma is working to bring about a movement resulting in the mass release of Pokemon from the care of Trainers.
This announcement has shocked Pokemon experts and enthusiasts worldwide, with a call for more information as well as evidence supporting claims that Pokemon will benefit from the separation. Leading authorities on Pokemon are divided, with some agreeing that Trainers can sometimes push Pokemon into slavery-like roles, while others blast the claims as absurd, citing the strong bonds between Trainer and Pokemon that often last a lifetime.
Professor Samuel Oak of Pallet Town, the leading authority in the field of human/Pokemon relationships, has issued the following statement.
“In all my years of research, I have not found any evidence to suggest that Pokemon Training negatively impacts Pokemon in any way. Pokemon in the care of Trainers are not only generally stronger and healthier than their wild counterparts, but have higher levels of happiness and longer lifespans.
Team Plasma has provided no evidence to support their claims that Pokemon will be “better off” without human interference. Pokemon and humans grow together and the relationship between them is mutually beneficial.”
Team Plasma has vowed to travel the region to spread their message of Pokemon liberation and encourage Trainers to reconsider the relationships with their Pokemon.
“We must liberate the Pok√©mon! Then, and only then, will humans and Pok√©mon truly be equals. Everyone, I end my words here today by imploring you to consider the relationship between people and Pok√©mon… and the correct way to proceed.”
If nothing else, this announcement has come as a timely reminder that we, as humans, must keep in mind our responsibilities to our Pokemon partners and act in their best interests, whatever they may be.
