Day 21 - ampharos is some sort of electric kangaroo (i think). Yet he evolves from a family of electric sheep. Either way, he was an asset when I was playing pokemon gold.

Today's theme calls into question the ethics of pokemon battles. If these are supposed to be our friends, these creatures, then why do we mercilessly pit them against each other for our own personal glory? Furthermore, why is it alright to capture and collect as many as you can, in order to become the "Pokeon Master"? That smacks of forced serviturde. Are these pokemon really our harmonious eaquals, or simply tools for fighting?
