I personally can’t get behind this action group. Without Silph Co. we’d have no pokéballs, and without pokeballs I’d have to go back to enslaving my pets the old fashioned way (with sticks, whips and shock collars)
I just can’t go back to that after years of convenient, hassle free slavery tools!

    Isn’t this plasma’s agenda in the next game?
    Wow, they work fast.

  3. Doc624 on October 19th, 2010 9:08 am

    So, they want highly dangerous Pokemon roaming the streets, unrestrained by a trainer, giving them a wonderful opportunity to destroy life as we know it?

    We all saw what happened when that Charizard turned on it's trainer……..

    Yeah! who cares if their technology can see ghosts and an employee gives you a free lapras
    free the pokemon!!!

    Come to think of it, I always wondered how Pokeballs instantly transform raging elemental animals, whose sole objective is either to destroy all your pokemon or run like hell, into your willing and obedient slaves.

  7. Caelun_Niveus on October 19th, 2010 9:21 am

    Silph CO. is illegal anyway. WHO makes all the Pokeballs in the world? I thought monolipies were no longer allowed.

  8. Neentendow on October 19th, 2010 9:27 am

    You can ban Silph Co. and still catch pokemon using Kurt's apricorn balls!

  9. TehVortex on October 19th, 2010 9:29 am

    Porygon2s and Porygon-Zs will be ripping these posters down all over Saffron City.

    I just signed up (seriously, just now) to say that this is the single funniest thing that's happened to this site for months.

  11. LegomancerLv100 on October 19th, 2010 9:40 am

    And then Team Plasma learned of the internet…

    Brushie brushie brushie

  13. MasqueNoMercy on October 19th, 2010 9:46 am

    ya know what we do with animals when they are raging and out of control? we taze, tranq, or kill them… pokeballs are actually the humane solution… unless inside the pokeball is filled with tazers and tranquilizers…

  14. Sir_Nox on October 19th, 2010 9:50 am

    Double win for being a pic of Charmander on a Pokemon submission.

    I wanna be the slave master!

    I have the skills to be-Oh, hold on a second…*Whip Cracks* What the fuck did I just get through telling you?!

  16. Darth_Destro on October 19th, 2010 10:08 am

    I, for one, feel safer at night knowing that these dangerous creatures are tightly confined in their pokeballs, in the posession of 10 year olds, instead of roaming in the tall grass outside my house.

  17. Fearow on October 19th, 2010 10:28 am

    Victory! Something I submitted has finally been uploaded! Also, this might become a shirt if it gets enough positive votes on J!nx.

  18. Dimomarg on October 19th, 2010 10:48 am

    Right, first everyone is grateful because pokéballs provide pokemon with better living conditions than shock collars and whips, then everyone wants to go back. We're all just a bunch of sadist fucks.

  19. LegomancerLv100 on October 19th, 2010 10:58 am

    And then Team Plasma discovered the internet…

    Also, +1.

  21. Vosur on October 19th, 2010 12:06 pm

    These individuals just want to bust your balls. That is all.

  22. MasterLuigi452 on October 19th, 2010 12:28 pm


  23. BoxeyBrown on October 19th, 2010 1:15 pm

    But without Silph Co, who will make us master balls?

  24. Axel_X on October 19th, 2010 1:16 pm

    Don't you people know anything about the economy?! If you get rid of Silph Co. you'll be forcing a lot of people out of their jobs. And I don't mean just Silph Co. employees, I mean Pokemon Trainers, Gym Leaders, heck even the Elite Four groups and Champions.

    And don't get me started on the Poke Marts. A pokeball is easier to purchase than a bottle of lemon aid at a vending machine!

    In short, you'd fuck up the entire world.

    ….then again maybe we shouldn't trust 10 year olds to have the powers of God, Time, Space, the elements, etc. at their fingertips…

  25. UndeadLex on October 19th, 2010 1:28 pm

    How is it INSTITUTIONAL imprisonment?
    Pokemon trainers aren't part of some university.
    Nor do they go to school, as far as I can tell.
    They just run around in grass and go to gyms.
    Hang out in caves, by lakes, and in fog until another trainer comes by.
    They are hardly organized and aren't orderly nor governmental.

    If it is, in fact, referring to a metal hospital institution.
    And therefore is considering the pokeball itself an institution, then why aren't they getting treatment for their mental sickness?
    They're just cooped up in solitary confinement until they're released blindly onto the battle field and recalled the moment of victory or defeat.
    That's hardly rehabilitating.

    Or maybe they just already bought the rights for the name CAIS and couldn't think of what to use the I for.
    Institutional is just the wrong word.
    They need to rethink their name.

    And when the Pokemon succeed in their rebellion…there will be an agent they have named "Kurt".

  28. Spartan_Laser on October 19th, 2010 4:14 pm

    don't let abe lincoln play your pokemon red;
    he'll release all your pokemon!!!

    Paid for by Rocket Industries.

  30. supreme_slayer on October 19th, 2010 5:39 pm

    I don't know… I'm on the fence with this. While Silph Co. has done some terrible things, they also created the Silph Scope and plenty of useful devices in our world. I can't rightfully call them bad. And even without this, when does our own reasoning come into play here? They just make the stuff, but WE use it.

  31. Squikker2001 on October 19th, 2010 6:10 pm

    … and now it is gone.

    No fair! Apparantly something really hilarious happened here, and I cannot see it. *sulks*

  34. Daifuku on October 19th, 2010 7:06 pm

    You're forgetting one thing. Daft Punk tames the savage beast. And anything else within earshot.

  35. jrharbort on October 19th, 2010 8:34 pm

    Or you could just, you know, have that old geezer Kurt in Azalea town make you some balls from apricorns.

    Narrator: Bud Light presents: Real Men of Genius.

    Singer: Real men of genius~

    N: Today we salute you, Mr. Pokeball Inventor Guy.

    S: Mr. Pokeball Inventor Guy!

    N: Mankind has always wanted to be the very best. And thanks to your invention, they can do just that without the fear of injury from deadly attacks.

    S: Don't worry, I just fainted!

    N: You even went the extra mile to prevent others from taking your hard earned catch, so all would-be thieves may as well tune up their vocal chords as you send them flying away.

    S: Blasting off again~!

    N: Only someone with pure dedication, lots of motivation, and a slight touch of insanity would be able to craft a device that could force a 12-foot, 800-pound beast into a 6-inch, 10-ounce ball, and avoid being harassed by animal rights activists.

    S: Wonder Guard ability!

    N: So congratulations, oh craftsman to the champions. I choose you, to mega kick back, and slam an ice cold Bud Light. You can use the bottle cap as a badge.

    S: Mr. Pokeball Inventor Guy~!

    methinks there is a troll giving out -1s

  38. KZN02 on October 20th, 2010 2:07 am

    So what about the Devon Corporation?

  39. uzumakiclan43 on October 20th, 2010 4:54 pm

    Guess someone is encouraging people from Silph Co. to…

    -puts on sunglasses-

    …rage quit!

    This is actually up for voting at the Design Arcade:

  43. Exa on December 30th, 2010 7:11 pm

    Only some pokemon are animal like. Pokemon like Bidoof, ratatta, and magikarp are more or less animals with little capacity for self awareness. However, there is a largwer population of "great 'mons" that have mental capacities similar to humans, like Gardevoir, Absol, any given legendary, and milotic. Oddly enough, in Diamond and pearl, there is a history section that stated that those pokemon were considered just other people. it even mentions intermarriage. so yeah… I'm surprised there aren't cells of pokemon revolutionaries bombing trade caravans and the like.
