    That means a real bond has to be between them and their trainers, not any type of slavery, which dogfighting is.
    That's like saying there is a "real bond" between a manager and his prize fighter. No, the fighter is who freely chooses to fight. A pokemon is forced to, just like animals are forced to fight or entertain us.

    If the animals don't mind, we can watch.
    Animals can't communicate to us intelligently. When you see a rodeo, you can't tell if the horses "don't mind".

    Just as Pokémon are groomed and treated with care, that means cockfighting is justified as Pokémon battles, and vice versa/
    It isn't justified. It is still promoting violence for entertainment, at the expense of a pokemon's health.
