Jumping on the Pokémon Go fever, women’s health organisation Planned Parenthood introduced to the world a whole new Pokémon creation in the name of promoting safe sex to youths.
Gotta catch em’ all? Well, not when it’s STDs.
The Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota Planned Parenthood Action Fund apparently crossbred a Squirtle with a condom to give this unnamed Pokémon that’s gonna protect you from gonorrheas, syphilis, HIV and more:
‘There are some things you don’t want to catch. Reminder: Condoms help prevent both pregnancy and STDs. #PokemonGo #CatchEmAll #SaferSex,’ captioned the organisation.
On Twitter, the organisation wrote: ‘When you don’t want to #CatchEmAll, condoms help prevent pregnancy and STDs,’
The illustration is created by Advocates For Youth, a sexual health organisation catering to youths.
So far, no one has given this new Pokémon a name. Any ideas??
And what might this cute, protective lil’ creature evolve into? What do you think?
Whatever it is, remember: While you Pokémon Go, walk — don’t drive.
