I had never been to Play4Real before so I assumed that the story was, in fact, true.
A quick search through Reddit and the Story's own comments reveal the article to be satire; yet a longing for this story to be the delicious delicious truth remains. With PETA's obsession with Pokemon/MacDonalds/being insufferable, the tale feels plausible.
Do you wish this was a true story? You know I do.......
On a side note... Is Mr. Mime even in the new Pokemon?
