    Default Ethical Issues in Pokemon

    Hello,

    What do you think of the moral aspects of keeping Pokemon in tiny balls? This was brought up in the latest game, and it made me stop and ponder certain aspects of the world.
    What about the rights of Pokemon and the treatment of them by their trainers? They are sometimes subjected to inhumane treatment, even by their supposed loving masters. If you really loved your Pokemon, why would you subject them to being shoved into cramped balls all the time?
    What about the ethical implications of letting little children command creatures that have the potential to cause some serious damage and death around them, in some cases even alter the physical laws of the world?

    Please help
    Thanks


    I didn't find the right solution from the Internet

    The business marketing video was especially helpful.

    The 1st thing that comes to mind is:
    -Reviving pokemon that passed out,
    -Revival of disputes that had already been resolved peacefully,
    -Revive pokemon that were resting.

    The 2nd thing that might also be an ethical issue:
    -Escaperope brought into dungeons deliberately designed to be difficult in order to dissuade against trainer entry,
    -Escaperope utilized to avoid accomplishing tasks,
    -Escaperope availability preventing trainers from living with the future consequences of their actions and failures to maneuveur.
