Still requires the use of a trademark sign:

Since they do not have that then it should be illegal. If Gamefreak wanted to, I'm pretty sure they could sue PETA for that. As for a form of commercial purpose, the game is directly linked on their page and you could argue that they are using this to advertise their point (to the extreme, it seems).
