I propose a challenge: draw the nitty-gritty of Pokemon.

Draw old, battle-scarred Pokemon. Draw lost, abandoned Pokemon, Draw destructive, havoc-wreaking Pokemon. Draw poisoned, burned, paralyzed Pokemon. Draw legendary Pokemon caged by curious professors and ten-year-olds. Draw gruesome fights and missing limbs. Draw whatever disenchants the simple ability to heal at a Pokemon Center and make it all better.

Because as awesome and whimsical as the Pokemon world is, there’s something really cool about grounding it with more realistic qualities. It’s been done before, though I wish it was done more frequently.

And if you draw anything like this it’d be super cool if you could tag it with “Pokenitgrit” so I can see more badass Pokemon business? lD

This woman deserves a round of applause and a throne of gold. This is the most realistic & amazing thing for someone to say for this generation of students. I wasn’t able to go to college this year because my parents can’t afford to send me and I had every scholarship, grant, loan known to man and it still wouldn’t work. Finally someone gets it!

Preach!

WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR PEOPLE TO REALIZE THIS?!

SO MANY OTHER COUNTRIES EITHER PAY FOR THEIR POPULATIONS’ EDUCATION OR JUST WRITE OFF THE BILL IF DOESN’T GET PAID FOR.

THE WAY THE AMERICAN EDUCATION SYSTEM WORKS IS BACKWARDS AND MANGLED.
