Pallet Town, England, 1831 - A young naturalist named Charles Darwin sets sail on a five year voyage of discovery to lands great and unknown. Always a keen observer and ardent collector, Darwin delighted at the strange, wonderful, and pugnacious creatures he discovered. As his collections grew, he noticed that certain creatures bore marked similarities to certain others, and he began wondering how such new creatures came into existence.

Upon his return, Darwin spent decades writing, researching, and collecting; expanding his ideas into a theory which he finally presented to the Cerulean Zoological Society and published in the momentous and influential manuscript: On the Origin of Species of Small Fighting Monster by Means of Repeated Combat, or the Acquisition of Novel Forms in the Struggle to Collect them All.

This year we celebrate the 200th birthday of the world’s greatest naturalist, and on November 24th, the 150th anniversary of his greatest work.

Not only did he catch them all, but he discovered the process by which they came to be.

YOU HAVE NO CLUE HOW BADLY I WANT THIS TO PRINT!

i was in school today, sitting and daydreaming, and thinking about how i sold my pokemon cards on ebay like 2 years ago and how i miss them
but
then i pictured myself wearing this shirt and i felt a lot better
so if this doesnt print, i have no other option then to kill myself
you better make the right choice threadless.....

I wonder how long it would take to print, Hope not too long

In addition to describing the subtle variations in shell structure of different island populations of Blastoise, Darwin produced several lesser known works, including "On the Movement and Habit of Fighting Plants", "The Various Contrivances by which Vileplumes are Fertilized by Venomoths", "The Formation of Vegetable Mould, through the Actions of Trios of Worms, with Observations on Their Diggling", and "Monograph of the Fossil Kabutopsidae"

Ilovegoats, what are you talking about? did you not know that Darwin collected dinosaur skulls, and did a groundbreaking study on the anatomy of chinchillas (one is mounted behind him), and was very interested in pigeon breeding?

Like santo always was
To make tees is his real test
To get printed is his cause
I will travel across the land
Drawing far and wide
Teach Threadless to understand
The power that's inside
Pokemon!
Gotta draw 'em all--
It's you and me
I know it's my destiny
Pokemon!
Ooooh, you're my collab friend
In a world we must defend
Pokemon!
Gotta Draw 'em all--
Our hearts so true
Our courage will score us through
You draw me and I'll draw you
Pokemon!
Gotta draw 'em all!
Gotta draw 'em all!
Yeeaa.
Every submission along the way
With 5 dollars I can face
I will colour everyday
To claim my alumni place
Come with me the score is right
There's no better team
Sam and santo will win the fight
It's always been their dream
Pokemon!
Gotta draw 'em all--
It's you and me
I know it's my destiny
Pokemon!
Ooooh, you're my collab friend
In a world we must defend
Pokemon!
Gotta draw 'em all—
Our hearts so true
Our talents will pull us through
You draw me and I'll draw you
Pokemon!
Gotta draw 'em all!
