Ariyasaki, Dr Disrespect and QuarterZ responded to Pokemon’s Twitter post, praising their fellow content creators for “giving back” to their fans.

This isn’t the first time Pokemon has made news.

Last month, Pokemon was announced as the co-founder and chief creative officer of RTS. Backed by Endeavor, RTS aims to “fix” the gaming and esports industry, focusing on maker business models, brand deals and esports strategies. The move was highlighted by Pokemon as “the biggest announcement ever”. [her] livelihood.”

With Twitch reporting more than two billion clockwork in October alone, it’s a platform with a clear amount of power, and its biggest streamers share somewhat in that power. Through his wealth and influence, Pokemon has given his fans the opportunity to support his education and take his education to the next level. While $10,000 is not enough to pay for a full college tuition, it is certainly a huge amount and something that can support anyone in the pursuit of their educational goals.
