Two of my favorite things back in the early 2000s has been drawn together and the entire club is crying with me.
Picture this: It’s Saturday morning in 2002 and you get out your GameBoy color with Pokémon Red Version and you run downstairs.
Mom pours you a bowl of Trix Cereal (before the shapes changed and they still had character) and you take it infront of the television and turn to Animal Planet because The Crocodile Hunter was on as peruje.
If this wasn’t your childhood then I am sorry because those were some of the best years to have no responsibility.
So anyway, this amazing artist named Liezl Ronquillo, ‘Vivinkart‘ on social media, drew Steve Irwin as a Pokémon trainer and it hit me in the feels.

Steve Irwin would be the perfect Pokemon Champion if there was an Aussie region! #pokemon #pokemonfanart #pokemonstraya #australianpokemon #steveirwin #ripsteveirwin #crikey #pokemontrainer #totodile #krokorok #pokemonchampion #pokemoncharacter #conceptart #iswearillstopuploadingfanartsoon
“Also made Steve Irwin into a Pokemon Champion, not just a regular trainer. It would be perfect for the Australian region! He could work alongside Professor Gum/Waratah/Wattle in aiding wild Pokemon in the region. He wouldn’t push his Pokemon past their limits, but would still encourage a healthy Pokemon battle.”
We miss you Steve Irwin ❤
