Pokemon sex ed: Don't catch them at all

Well here's a method of sex education that would have been super effective when I was at school (or at least would've made everyone less giggly and embarrassed): a Redditor shared photos of the school they attend which has a sex ed. display based around Pokemon.
A tad more appealing than seeing a teacher roll a condom down a banana, the stand includes Pokemon cards of monsters I'm not familiar with – maybe they're from the later games – with names like Gonnorhea and Syphillis, along with 'descriptions' of their symptoms. And what's the weakness of these Pokemon? Why, condoms emblazoned with Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbasaur, of course! Although obviously nobody would ever choose the last one.
There are certainly worse ways for them to learn all about the birds and the bees than wise old Professor Oak...

Tell us what you think. How did you tackle 'the talk'?
