Ethical Issues in Pokemon

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.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

It's not a big deal; it's a game. In fact in the anime it seems that in some cases being in a Pokeball acts as a time capsule for some pokemon, while time goes on around them and their original human trainer passes on, the pokemon sometimes outlives it's owner.

Everything is trade-offs.

However while i've said this the anime has been inconsistent and sometimes pokemon inside pokeballs have broken free of the pokeball of their own freewill, so this debate at it's foundation is inconsistent, we can't assume they're trapped at all, and if they aren't traded where's the foundation for moral outrage?
