Pokemon Sword & Shield DLC Rumors
"I have some concerns about a game series I. Don't really have a lot of stake in but I. I know friends and I. Know People, and obviously it's popular so I'm just got to put an open letter out to the fans. Coconut fans. Are you okay. What's what's? Happening with pokomo Jackson. Well I. Mean Like A. Nintendo has. Gone on for years and years and years saying we'll never deal. See to poke him. We'll never deal. See to Pokemon deal. See pokemon never and. They did it Dave even. The I I believe sixty dollar POKEMON game first game to come up on console pokemon. Sword and shield recently got an expansion DLC. I don't know what it does I. Don't know if it added anything like Pokemon, wise, or if it was just more area to explore new trainers to fight not. Not, sure but I do know that deal. It is POK MON and it exists, but more than that. There's also. apparently more pokemon news coming up on the horizon but sense. That deal, see just dropped I. Don't think it's the new main story game that everybody thinks it's going to be, and then on top of that recently, a game kind of popped into sort of the advertisements on my switch that sort of. Said Hey. You should check the salaries and we came out and it say Puzzle Game Donors Pok Mon Cafe, and it's cute enough, but it's. Very much like something. I think that could have just. Let Really Song Apple Story and no. Told me about among cafe. Tell me about that. I don't really know how to describe it as a puzzle because it's all touched based, and it's not like sliding blocks. Dropping blobs or anything like? Tetris it's. A big conglomeration of just ev or peak shaped balls, and you drag your finger along. And connect them all in order to make a combo. It's not difficult. It's just so. It's lawyer Bobble late or is this what you've wanted I I yeah, or no, not really. Bust a move would have like you know aiming involved. This is really just you wiggle your finger. Finger across the screen. And then you let go, and then it all clears. It's very. It's very. I guess I would say and you know. Maybe that's fine for. You know the average Joe and I know that Pokemon has had a number of mobile releases now, but part of me is just wondering. Why was this a switch release? Why wasn't this on the phone? It's free. And I believe it is paid play. I deleted it I was just Kinda like well well at check out just to see what it was. I want to see what was going on in the world of poke him on the tertiary side, and it doesn't look that good and I remember. Not to pull the back in my day card. Semi Semi used to be with it and Jack I literally within Jack. Then, they chased what it was. I remember. On Games when the side POK MON Games were. Still capable of bringing you through all the gym, leaders and their trainers and the elite four. I'm talking about the end sixty four classics stadium. So, you know I know the spinoffs should be like and I've seen what's been going on to the community, and I've kind of vaguely gone people to explain to me like if gotten rid of national decks, so you can't really liked apparently transfer your POK mon from other Games, and if you have an emotional connection to the series. That does suck, and then just to add on top of it. It seems like two to three pieces of big pokemon content are kind of releasing this summer, or at least being announced, and it's really. Doesn't feel I. Don't know I like I said I'm kind of on the outskirts, but I do know people and I'm just worried like. How are you feeling? Is this okay? Are you worry? Do you think Pokemon is more of a? Like a mascot franchise. Or, than the game that it was I, mean it's Kinda, got an identity crisis from the beginning. You know card game anime. It's a brand. It's always been a brand, but I'm just worried that. Maybe it's kind again. Spread a little thin and I'm worried about my friends. And this is my open invitation. To say is I? See what's going on and I'm worried about you?

"Challenge celebration special research which is going to be available whether you completed the previous throwback challenges or not if you did get some extra candies and stuff and if you didn't get all the perks I I'm still torn on this one like have you put any thought into this. Like accessibility is important right. You want more people to be able to experience it right like like I think that the ability for more people to play this outweighs the fact that it takes away from the reward of unlocking to chant. I feel like I earned it so I don't like I know you're a completion EST but like I don't need to buy it's it's not something that I personally like if I completed them all. I don't need it you know what I mean. It's not necessary. It's just an added bonus you know I mean if you're all for it and you you know you have an extra eight bucks spare go for it. You know. Sure it's just you know more more more of the good stuff you want. And it's a research. So I mean you get to have fun have a storyline so so to recap for those with access to either the challenge champion or celebration. You can expect encounters with Galeria meow and glorious done fisk in the wild as well as research leading to encounters with NOVA POK MON like the starters blissful Dino Dharam Muka Gotha Genocide Act which is like the hot ticket all about Genesis and. Hopefully we get a different drive. I really hope that. That's that's coming because that would be. We saw out of the code. We ought to be how they're going to be cool if people got different colors. Because then it's like. Oh Man. I need to do it again or I needed know h traits. No I know but that's the thing it's like or or just give us a different color. That would be cool but for those. That aren't taking. Part in the throwback champion challenge celebration research. You can still expect to see stunned. Fisk in the wild in and raids we also will see. Gloria meow glorious execute galeria Dr Muka and glaring stunned Fisk in seven K. egg. So this is the time you definitely want to be hatching seven K. eggs so Afghan. I hate it get back in the garage. You're GONNA ask me. It's the game forces my hand. Now this is the other little little asterisk here. In addition to these glaring. Pok Mon. You're also GONNA see their regular pool of seven case stuff so a lowly meow is still going to be in the fuck and seven K. Pool along with Gloria Mouth. So it's not like this is just exclusive glaring stuff so in my fucking lock..

"For the master set. I think that might be like a fun goal to kind of push myself for but the the sets are just so big. They don't make it easy they are. I mean the last set that I one hundred percent completed is roaring skies. But that but that's especially three rotations yet four rotations back but initially I had I had purchased a case. Well I had enough bulk to get a case of cards which was an astronomical amount of bulk able to get six boxes and boxes. I got everything I needed. That's awesome. That's awesome but rebel clashes fantastic know. Ken said this. This set has some of the most anticipated cards coming out of it. There's just tons stuff. It's all coming from POKEMON DOT coms contributing writer. Ellis Long. They put together a list of few competitive ready cards from the new set. Obviously these are the ones that definitely standout drag a Paul. Vi Max. It does not only has amazing art but has great flexibility when you spell tag and horror psychic energy so you're dropping damage counters left and right in it's amazing like for two energies I just for two energies and sixty damage your place in damage counters out like it is bonkers absolute bonkers and here. I am this cards. Preity see that now. We know it's dragged but the whole time I've been calling it the thing that shoots like a baby lizards out of its Ted Dragon. Years dragging baby straggling baby hairs that card alone. It's so brutal and if that wasn't enough like its weeknight. It's now psychic pok. Mon are usually week to either either psychic or dark pokemon so me play dark so it doesn't scare me as much as other people right but being able to place damage counters. That's not have pokemon that says you know prevent damage but if you're placing damage counters wherever like. You can't stop that like there's a few that's has a bench barrier so your bench pokemon can't be hit. It's all well and fun but this thing overrides that 'cause you're placing damage counters not doing damage your do damage gas. That's that's what makes this thing brutal. You know moving forward. We've got glaring using this card is insane for one energy you poison your opponents active how poisoning but you're putting four damage counters instead of one on that pokemon in between the checkup and it says as long as this. Pokemon is in the active spot. Your opponents pokemon and play have no abilities except neutralizing gas basically. Just this is like. What was that pokemon? From or wasn't it like was it was available from some of the decades but the expanded had like yeah like a similar similar effect or similar ability that would prevent prevent abilities from from being happy from working. Yes well said Noah items I think like lacy on one of the ones that's like it's it said basically That you you know as long as it's active. But here's the drawback it has to be the active pokemon and with bosses order in play. It's easily avoided if I WANNA use my powers I just have to dig for bosses order which you know everybody's playing two to three and if you're not you should be playing two to three. Then you've got elder Ghazi. We've already I mean we've mentioned it on here but basically you can play use. Its ability happy March take supporter from your discard pile. Put it in your hand. Oh that's a long ways to grab your grab your boss's boss's orders and then you can attack attack with it for like two colors. Energies without float up does fifty damage. And then you may shuffle L. All cards attached to it back into your neck so you can reuse it over and over again especially if you have a poker with a high enough. Hp that can stall you know. Then you've got cliff able at has a frankish ability which allows the players to choosing energy attached the opponents active pokemon and put it on the top of their deck energy. Sale will always be so strong what I was going to say. What do they call that mechanic energy? Denial is so cool. What a disruptive mechanic. That's so awesome. There's so many disruptive cards like that's what makes us set the set standout beyond sword and shield Rebel clash is that like defining set. So I'm glad with the players coming up that it gets a chance to shine because I was so worried that it wasn't going to get the love. It deserved from the format but now with everything in format and players. And you're able to use it all I'm excited to see what people come up with. Yes and then like we mentioned before bosses order news reporter bring backs brings back mechanics from Sander Gust of wind from Bay set Pokemon catcher custom catcher. It just it's brutal this this allows just like you said nothing safe. Nothing's safe nothing. Say he just it's like I forget what video was watching but someone someone spent like like three or four turns setting up to bench POK. Mon and the person was able to use boss's orders consecutively onto turns and just ruined their day by bringing these under you know energy'd Pok Mon into the active and just wiping them out and it pretty much negated all the work that that person had done over the past like six turns because it just brought them in he wiped them out and Rinse repeat. So it's like notice that a lot done like structure dex. That's why they don't have a lot of gusting abilities. Because you have to spend that much time you putting energies onto under your real boom to get him into the active with four energies attack. Yep Yep out it's it's it's a brutal card and it's like the just the regular hollow is like anywhere from thirteen to fifteen dollars and then the And the secret rare goes around like thirty thirty three dollars somewhere around there. It's been fluctuating. It's you know since you've been talking about like archiving and doing all the stuff I've been paying a little bit closer attention attention to the to the way that the card market works and I've seen like a few days ago. The secret rare was up to like fifty five dollars today. It's down to thirty three dollars by the time. This podcast comes out. Who knows it could go like. It's crazy. How volatile volatile Visa Card prices are because the demand is just crazy and some days? It's up some days it's down. It's very interesting to follow. It's it's really like like playing the stock market. It's it's really fun yet. Because it depends on will okay so in theory it comes down to whatever is being like what's doing well in tournaments and with limitless. Tc G. like their Qualifiers the last one you know they had the top one forty one hundred forty nine necklace that are on there in ninety percent sure all of them have bosses order in it. And when is it clear cut deck? The card just increases in value dramatically. So it's good stuff. It's a bad ass looking card to it is just so we. Art Looks phenomenal that that full art is one of my one of my favorite renditions of. Giovanni that I've seen in card form in a long longtime. He just looks. He's just looked so tough. He looks super cool. Illness has Stephen Pose just like I'm the boss. I'm the boss Sir. Respect me put some respect my name. It's pretty pretty much an and that's the thing it's like not only. Will you have to be like skilled now? Like you need less to do the same effect if that makes any sense for gusting ability. So you only need to play your supporter and you only need to use a quick ball to go search for elegance V. Play it down. You've got the same card in your hand again. Yeah like there's just less you need to do. The same effect as needing to custom catchers getting ahead on Pokemon catcher. So it really comes down to like it's GonNa be a lot more skill and I think less chance more skill less chance and I love when they do stuff like this nice very nice very nice all right let's let's move away from the TC G. Put our wallets back in our pockets for a moment and it's GonNa actually. No you know what I lied. Put IT in your pocket. Take it right back out because there's new clothes that are out for to represent POK MON but there one from third party and one from pokemon center original so unique low. So unique low is is a really cool company. They've done like I couple years ago. I bought a bunch of like streetwear style shirts that they've done they've partnered with like various artists. They do a lot of collaborations and they also do a lot of gaming and anime related collaborations which is Kinda cool and they've done pok on like stuff before but they have this new series now. called I think they're just calling it. Polka mine are or with pokemon is the name of the collection so and then they fall under the Uniqlo. Ut which is their their line of graphic tees now with Uniqlo they've had like Disney partnerships and the shirts were like brutally expensive t shirts that were like forty fifty bucks like. That's that's crazy. That's outside of my budget but this ut collection now the one that these new pokemon shirts fall in all the t shirts are fifteen bucks. It's legit so everyone's budget and the Disneyland's should fall out of anyone's budget do fifty bucks for a t shirt is a lot is a lot fifteen bucks is is. Is there song about that? But like it's like fifty bucks for a t shirt. That's ridiculous it's not but there's a couple of really cool designs there's like this To with silhouettes with PT. One with Evi the pitchy one is actually the one that I ordered And if you sign up for the first time on unique low.

We have four weeks of distributions coming to sword and shield. Actually starting now starting this weekend so We'll break that down what you can expect in who you can get. I. We're going to take a look at some of the competition. Ready cards from rebel clash. We've We've talked about rebel clash a lot lately. And it's because the set is really awesome so it makes a lot of sense that there's a lot of coverage of it so we'll kind of break down some of the cards that you. WanNa look out for with rebel clash It's it's been out there in the wild the cards. The stock levels have been pretty strong across retailers across the online theory strong. Yeah I think this is. The set is doing really well for Pokemon and I think a lot of people that weren't into the TC G. or kind of on the fence because of the whole quarantine thing stuck in the house have dipped into the TC g. a little harder than I normally would. Which is a good thing. So I'm seeing rebel clash everywhere. That's why we're we're talking about so much so I absolutely adore the set and You know I'm going to be cracking. Open my third elite trainer box pretty soon. So I'm really really enjoying the set. Mice would just get a booster box. At this rate. I know I know right. Maybe we'll split one. Maybe we'll split one. It's a good week for pokomo including This is always a weird topic. A lot of people feel wishy washy about pokemon clothes. It's like they could be a pokemon fan but once it gets to the point of them wearing him on clothing way crossing the line for some a little bit too revealing little. Tim I as far as Letting people know you know they're inert side or anything like that not mean not i. I wear that nerd flag very very loud and clear. I don't mind at all and we have to really cool collections. We have one from unique low. Which is You know a very interesting brand. That has done stuff from streetwear to some formal wear But they they always do really cool graphic tees so they have this specific graphic. T- line and they've partnered POKEMON. They've done pokemon stuff before and we have a bunch of new shirts and to celebrate that Pokemon go has also released a couple of those designs in game then initiative that we have pokemon center releasing a new line called outdoors with POK MON. Which is amazing. It's kind of like this woodsmen style campy outdoorsy flannel shirt. Type thing very very very cool stuff Definitely definitely one hundred percent. I already ordered one of the unique low shirts but I'm definitely going to be ordering product from Bookham on center. I'll tell you what I'm going to get when we get section finally will do our rewatch of poke him on the series episode. Ninety five away off day off Adam you beat put him on shield right so yes. Are you feeling like you need to put it down? Where do you think that this can kind of motivate you to start doing more raids or like where? Where are you with the game like you finish the game? Like I haven't finished the ambulance stuff. I haven't beat the two guys would suits yet. Like I haven't gotten a dashing Sorry it's center. I haven't gotten him yet but I I like my drive play. It is there. It's just you know I'm I'm messing around with animal crossing. I noticed Khokhlov podcast but you know that game can takes up. You know you get lost in it. You're like an hour and a half later. You're like one and then I know the other podcasts. I've mentioned a kind of figured out mine. Craft a little bit and that has taken its toll on me so yeah I just got lost lost track of time but definitely going back into it I I still need to get back into the wild area. That's still my favorite part. I need to get back to it. Well may maybe these distributions help you do that because some of What makes the wild area really cool? Especially when you start getting into raid. Battles is the fact that if you want hidden ability pokemon you have to get them through Max Rabaeus. So what this distribution is doing is every week for the next four weeks. They're going to be giving out glaring pokemon but those glare you poke him on. We'll have specific hidden ability. So all kind of break down the schedule here and what you can expect and You know maybe this will motivate you to to get back in so starting this week actually on the twenty second yesterday the started and each one of these. I'll give the starting date a run to the following week Glare Mr Mine is available with the hidden ability ice body. It'll also all them in addition to having the hidden ability. Also come with some items of some sort. So Mr Mime is GonNa come with allure ball moon ball heavy ball adding Dream Ball then the following week glaring pony data with the hidden ability. Anticipation that'll come with a level wall. A love ball ball and a beast ball the following week after that starting on June fifth glaring core Sola with the hidden ability cursed body along with evolution item. Sweet Apple Tart Apple Shift Pot. Crackpot SACH IT whipped dream so different evolution items for different. Poke him on pretty cool. The whole police thing and everything and then finally four weeks out starting on June Twelfth Glare Ian me off with a hidden ability. Unearth this is a cool one. It's GonNa come with one hundred experience candies and fifty big nuggets so their standard experienced candies. Not Worth a ton but these are cool because you can give them out as needed and there's been plenty of times where I'm leveling up. Pok Mon. They might not need a ton of experience but I only have a large experienced candy or something like that and up and you don't WanNA wasting a lot of experience. Yeah so this you can kind of just give your pokemon on what they need and you don't have to be so wasteful so four weeks of Galeria poke on all four have different hidden abilities in different goodies. They come with and what will do is on. Each of our episodes each of the next three episodes going forward will give a little reminder of what poke Amman will be distributed that week and all this stuff is going to be through mystery gifts so you need to get online. You need to just go into the menu like mystery gift and you can pull the gift down and unlock it like that. But a Lincoln description if you have any questions on how to actually do that. The process super super easy. But you don't WanNa miss it. Because they're all timed and Nash. Chance starting now and all. This is kind of in preparation. I guess for the release of the ISLE OF ARMOR. The first expansion pass thing we still don't have an exact date but at the bottom of this page that talks about this distributions it just says the end of June so if the last distribution here starts on the twelfth then perhaps on the nineteenth or so is going to be. Let's see what day of the week that is. The nineteenth of June is a Friday. So maybe the that Tuesday. Coming up after that the twenty third. Maybe that'll be the release day of I'll armor it. We don't know but be tinfoil high. It could be yeah ten four time for sure but it's I mean it. They said ended June so there. You know no specific date but I. I can't imagine them changing that at any point this late in the game. So we'll have to see but pick up these welcome on free on good. This is You know this is a good opportunity also to like just get random stuff that you can ultimately transferred bank and you know from the collectors aspect you know when you look back and say oh. I have a hidden ability. Mr Mime. You know or your a hidden ability glaring pony ponytail. The this might be the only time to acquire Kokomo with that hidden ability. So it's pretty cool pretty cool for collectors are. Let's shift gears a little bit Adam. Rebel clash How have you been doing with your collection? I know that you picked up to booster boxes and a bunch of like random boxes like you got like the the sword and shield figure collection and all that stuff. How are you trying to like go for a master set here or drying openly crazy? Are you really current? Yeah and that's kind of like my goal You know as soon as we start I started doing. The special conditions podcast. It was kind of like a toss Behind an idea of me cataloging you know collecting from sun and moon on and like going through all my sets as like rotations of happened quickly. Got Out of hand so described that idea. But I've been trying to do every single set and I've Kinda got all the way from like steam siege straight up like everything is in like cataloged order. I've I've looked back at my older sets in. They're all kind of JUST RANDOM. Have like boxes full of just e X.'s. And breaks and awesome rare cards. That should be in binders. But they're not. I just have to figure out time to do that. I don't think I went for a master set going all the way back. I think the last one I tried for that was like breakpoint or something. Because that's like one of the sets that when I first started getting back into the PC after a little break so breakpoint get it But I You know I. That's like a all my sets boxes like just a by the trainer box. Oh by some boosters here and there but for breakpoint I bought a booster box lead. Couple trainer boxes and that will actually have a binder. So you know I. I'm thinking maybe rebel clash might be the one for me. Maybe one set per expansion. I might go.
"pok mon" Discussed on Lured Up - A Pok�mon GO Podcast
"We had a one Polka coin box or gift box that came with three remote passes which is currently like the limit that solid I was. I was more than blown away by that. Like cool. Cool that we can only hope three cool that they gave us three and cool that it was one coin. I like that I was able to read one and it was nice because it's in an intersection where it technically shouldn't be Jim. But it's Jim I mean. I guess if you're standing on the sidewalk no pedestrian access. It will like you can get there. It's like it's in a crosswalk so it's like any if you're standing on the sidewalk you can hit it. It's not like a big deal but just one of those things where if you driving. It's not ilise. No easy way to par is awesome. Because I could park far away. See it and be able to do the raid and Nice. I was able to do it. I did as Groupie can has to correct me. Because I like to put a T- in their script t you did it. You said you actually said it without the teeth group phone. It's because I it's because I have a little bit of liquor me. No this is why. What is this wine? It's fine. I don't know what's going on anymore but like Ken said the real impact will happen once we can invite people because can immediately shared images of like all the things that he could see in my head? I'm like can you not send me pictures without uninvite? Yeah let's just how. I drove down to Red Bank. It was popping off there. Were like nine nine or ten raids that were visible from downtown Red Bank and I was thinking to myself like Oh man. If remote invites were here. This would be absolutely amazing because I played completely solo that day. I wasn't with anyone I didn't see anyone and I couldn't do any other any the tier five rates so it was like this would be. This would be absolutely ideal if this was live. Because I've actually be able to do some of these rates because we have new tier five raid bosses and give us the give us the rundown here at him. Yes this is like such a cool announcement in the two long. Didn't read is. We're getting cry back. We're getting altered Form Cure Tina back. We're getting version back. We'll have cry from the twenty eighth till May Fifth and then from May April twenty five April Twenty eight until may fifth and then from May fifth to May twelfth have altered form year. Tina and then this is the spiciest one from twelve to the nineteenth. We're going to have arisen but all three of these are going to be able to be shiny the other two. We've seen him yes or is in. You look so nice. I cannot wait I went. I went super hard on On Dr Cry when it came back this last time and I didn't get the shiny so I'm excited shot and then if you P I know but it's no one's really reading it. I need invites invites happen. I can almost guarantee that my phone won't stop blowing up from Ken. Being like Adam. You need to help me. Let's do this. Let's trade with right. So the the other thing is we knew about this from the announcement two weeks ago that remote ray passes. We're going to be available in the shop at a discounted rate of one hundred polka coins so in the shop right now you can buy one single standalone raid pat remote. Read Pass for one hundred but there's also a three pack. Three remote raid passes for two hundred fifty coins so this is even further discounted so just kind of had me thinking like what this could possibly cost once it goes out of this promotional period. Like I I'd imagine that these are going to be two hundred each you know and then maybe five hundred for three. Yeah I would look at it as like a super incubator because it's technically a luxury item. Oh sure you're you're paying for convenience again that's the that's the main thing with mobile games. You know you're paying for something that's going to either. May something easier or something that's GonNa make something faster. It's typically not paid a win. It's just pay for convenience so it's like the whole walking thing like when that comes back it's you can either walk or you can pay for it for. Peavey by right now the remote raid that you did no. You're the only person Yes Yup I was with my nose joining but I mean and she did it with me but nobody else joined. But I have been driving and driving. But I've been in the passenger seat and legitimately have been and I've been like looking at rates just to see if people are in and I haven't seen anybody in so there's been a few posts online and again with any new feature things are going to. You know not function to one hundred percent at launch. And I gotTa say this rolled out pretty smoothly and I only saw a couple of people saying hey. I got booted from the Raider. I couldn't connect but this rolled out to level forty trainers at first and then it was like within ten minutes. It was like all right level thirty five and then level thirty then they just kept going down and down and down all the way to level five so it it it. I think it was exceptionally successful. Launch of a new feature yet is very smooth. I'm ready for the the invites because at this point I mean I'm still getting out and about you know I can still stay socially distant. I could still go out to my local park or go to red bank and do my tears one three raids without issue solo. So it's like I'm not gonNA spend a remote raid pass simply to do it on a tier one through three from home by myself so I'm going to hold off you know until I could do some tier five stuff. Invite some of the community. That's like that's what it's all about. That's what I cannot wait to do. But I like that. They brought these these tier five raid bosses back for just a spice things up over the next couple of weeks. It's good stuff I can't. We were wondering what was going to replace lenders. So and now we know all right so this was an exciting one. We have the throwback celebration twenty twenty. Have a lot of information here. So buckle up strap in for a minute was gonNA pretty much read. This directly from pokemon go live dot com because they put it very eloquently and concisely. There's a lot of information.

Some of US got this early including myself and it was weird because it showed up and everyone was like. Yeah what the fuck is this? This is weird and then it went away then. It broke all of research. None of the researchers working The Special Research Tab was completely blank. You would spin a stop. It wouldn't give you any research and you restart the game and boom. It came back but if he had it it came back to stay and it won't reset come Friday so Adam. You didn't even realize that you had the thing you're like. Oh I thought this was out. Yeah I like. Something's wrong with my son's game. It's not their houses. You have an early. He doesn't all right understandable the It is fully functioning on the cool thing about the research is it shows up in the today view. It's not gonNA show up in your field research. Tab It's not gonNA show up special research actually in the today view but it functions just like normal research where you complete stuff turns orange you click through it except it get the reward now. What's cool here is well. You know what? Let me let me read the text because they put a little narrative to it which I liked so let's look back at the adventures in polk. Amman Redden Procam on blue together from catching a Boldizsar charm. Enter or Skurdal in memory of one of the most iconic choices traders had to make to taking a snapshot of Ghost type. Pok MON TO CELEBRATE THE GHOST TYPE POK MON lavender town.

That's awesome is. This is a good hat. I can stand behind this hat. And also in the code breaking terms of service in the Code Shiny versions were formed. They did not announce it in this in this release but in the code at least the shiny forms are there on and off. They're going to be available now but they're they're If you're lucky you may find a shiny vinet. So has he's really cool blue eyes instead of Red Looks Really Nice.

"pok mon" Discussed on Gotta Watch'em All - A Pok�mon Podcast
"Them all the podcast bringing together trainers from every corner of pokemon Phantom before watching along with an episode of Pokemon series. Starting all the way back in episode one. But today we're going to be watching episode Ninety Navel Maneuvers. GotTa Watch them. All as part of the POKEMON professor network and today is Sunday April. Eighteenth two thousand twenty. I'm one of your host. Ken pescatore joined by my co host. Adam tuttle atom. Hello Hi how are you friends? Hello I hope you're doing fantastic. 'cause I also doing fantastic. I am feeling I am feeling fantastic. I'm glad you're feeling fantastic. As as per the usual Adam. Yeah I mean it snowed this morning like enough to be yet like lowering the ground but by this afternoon it cleared up. There was no snow on the ground. There's anywhere and I was like man for a minute there. It was like Christmas again and then a couple days ago I posted on her instagram. It literally was like snowing while the sun on both sides of me. It was bright. It was hot and it was snowing. Yeah the world is crazy right now. Oh including the weather and I went into the games APP for POKEMON. Go and I'm like. The weather seems accurate. But not quite there. Now I I was. I was power-washing at my mother's house was was power washed. My mother's backyard like her back patio area and blasting the ground rate and all of a sudden. It's what in reality. It starts snowing but like the sun is out. It's warm enough for me to be power-washing I mean it was probably like in the forties and I see little snowflakes land on me. But I didn't know what they were. I'm like in my blasting the ground so hard that like bits of concrete or like flying onto me I go what is this then I look up. I realize it's a flurry go do. The world is is crazy now. It's so nuts all right well. Let's talk for. Weather's like there's not enough pollution. I don't know what to do exactly all right on. Today's show top story of the week. Dna POK Mon Masters is holding true again on their word of supporting put my masters There's new features on the way S- pretty exciting. Actually that you're gonNA start to see some cool new mechanics hit that game and I just I the reason I put this at the top of the show is because I'm just so it's just really cool to see how the developers are communicating with the community and holding true to their word. It's it's it's not often you see that in this industry so it's really cool Rebel clash build them. Battle boxes are available at local card shops. We talked about this couple of weeks ago but now both Adam and I have them enhance soldiers. Dig a little bit deeper into that. A remote raids are coming to Pokemon. Go this is huge news. Huge huge news changing the landscape of Polka Mongo. We don't know when they're coming but they are coming soon. It's imminent and we're going to do a quick check. In with the POKEMON senator. Some cool new products there T G plus shes and pins always good to have pins. And then we're GonNa do our audio rewatch and watch along of Pok Mon Series Episode Ninety Navel Maneuvers Aright. So polka my masters. This is pretty cool. The producers to the game you Sasaki and Tetsu Gucci shared a message regarding some future updates in events And like I said DNA is just in done a great job communicating. And you know I don't remember how many months ago it was Scott to be close to five months. Something like that where they put that first apology letter out saying hey we understand. This game isn't what we promised. We understand it. You know it's missing a lot of features but we're doubling down and we continue. We promised to continue to support this game going forward and they have every month. There's something new. There's new characters new sync pairs and not just new sync pairs actual new mechanics to the game and the game has become more robust. And I think they're doing a great job that's why I wanted to feature it here. So poke Amman. Eggs are coming to masters now the way they're going to roll this out is with the first set of as you can get. It will hatch into one of the cantos starters. You have your your your Bogelsong Commander Squirrel. The one of them will become your your partner. Procam on and I guess you will be able to develop your sink pair with that pokemon going forward so that's cool kind of giving you. This parrot is cool. Yeah because then it makes it seem like it gives a little bit more personality to you as the trainer rather than playing with other sync pairs. Like okay I'm GONNA play as Brock around. GonNa play as oak professor. Okay you know what I mean like. You're actually going to be you. Yeah I mean that makes sense There's also a new legendary event that's going to be coming with. Ho and hose just a personal favorite of mine so anything. There is really cool. new prize box feature where you're going to be able to collect prize coins that that. I guess you'll spend on different items to progress in story mode reward boost tickets. This is something that's been in the game but you can only use one day Now as long as you have the tickets in hand you're going to be able to use an unlimited amount of them on a specific Bit of the story which is cool At a special item will be available to allow you to power up one of your five star sync pairs so the most powerful impairs. The game in this is interesting because the game in the beginning did have some issues with balancing. Where if you got a three or four star sink payer just no one was using them and you would see like everyone using like. Olivia or any of the five star ones. That's just all people are using. Now you're GONNA be able to even power up those five star sync so this is pretty cool and interesting. I guess to balance the game but in that direction in the advanced direction rather than dialing it back. You're going to be able to dial those five stars of which I think is cool Sink orbs which are going to be used Throughout the game will be easier to obtain outside of battle. So I guess there's going to be other. Things may be through story events or something like that that you'll be able to get them. This was all from POKEMON DOT com. I guess there was an extended article on the actual poker on masters landing page. So I'll link to the article on POK MON DOT COM. If you want more information on this you can check that article out and then link over to the full. Poke my masters sight but you know I just wanted to give Deanna. Game is still going. That's what I'm talking about their their continuing to produce content and support this game. And if you remember in the first week or so this game made like millions and millions and millions of dollars and then it it kind of tanked. It fell off. And that's when they kind of started this rebuilding process so I'd imagine that with them having all this development and all the support that the game is still producing from a financial perspective. So good on them to you. Know make make good on their promises. It's pretty cool. It's nice that they didn't leave like a fish in the water. Like magic carb jump. Hey man that was a masterpiece. It was it was so much fun. You know that game was. That game was getting even though there wasn't much to it. It was still. It was like a pallet cleanser was nice to play all right. Adam wanting to talk about these building battle boxes I was able to. I went to Peninsula Games in Fairhaven New Jersey. Give them a shout out. They being closed because of the whole Cova thing they opened specifically yesterday just to get the building battle boxes out to the Pokemon community so shout out to them. was able to call. They did a curbside. Delivery brought him right out to my car. It was fantastic. I was able to get to one for myself and one that we're going to be giving away on the special conditions podcast so make sure you listen to that. Show for information on how you can how you can win. One of these rebel clash building battle boxes. But you also were able to pick up right. Yes I actually was able to do this like a similar thing. curbside pickup. Thank you jet. Pack Comics in Rochester. New Hampshire I was able to pre order it online so I had a preordered Thank like three or four days ago and I was a bit said available to pick up on the eighteenth so I stopped by this morning and picked it up. Yeah that's awesome. I buy message my store on facebook. You know 'cause it said closed you know on the site and I'm like hey any chance you guys can. I can pick up a pre release kit. No actually. We're going to be open from two to four. I was like perfect sweet. I'm not be there so it was really but we couple of weeks ago. We talked about the the Promo cards that you can get.

But now you know. And that's half the battle so speaking of yu-gi-oh. Did you ever have the dual disc or it was like quick though. Okay I did and I thought it was the coolest kid. It's got ruined countless cards. Biting THEM INSIDE THE TIC. Tac thing you sat me. I've watched like eight hundred times. I loved itself yet now hilarious. It's GonNa do me. I don't have a deck attack Carter the week. Let's do this guys all right card of the week Connell. Adam finding model in the spirit of gear grinding We're GONNA take a look at Kling Klang. From black and White Bay set Kling Kling is a stage to its steel type. It's got a hundred and forty hip points. It's got a gear grind attack for one meddle into colorless does eighty damage. You flip to coins and it does eighty times the number of heads. It's gotTA TIMES TO WEAKNESS TO FIRE MINUS Twenty for resistance to psychic. He's got a three retreat costs in. It is a hollow rare card wise. This card. Good rix wandering Josh's wondering why right now it's got this cool ability called shift gear in. It says as often as you like during your turn before you attack you may move a medal energy attached to one of your Pok Mon to another one of your Pok Mon. Oh my God it's like metal saucer but as a pogrom on and I can put it wherever I want. Just not on my bench. We'll metal saucer. It goes from the discard to the bench folk. Want this goes from any POKEMON TO ANY OTHER POK Mon so that all the all the energies that are on board now I face this deck back in nationals like twenty twelve or twenty thirteen sick and what makes this card good is that players would get this card out and then there was a nucleus from black and white Os. While I believe in that would you can move. All damage counters to one POKEMON. You can move one damage counter. Every single so basically the player would have big basics. They'd have like a big Cobra. Es and if I did one shot it they would move all the damage to it and then they would use a max potion after moving all the medal energies away and then they just. He'll it in Max. Potion heals all damage but you have to discard all energies. But if the energies aren't there you discard any so it could set you up for massive plays and basically. I couldn't kill anything. I attack attack attack. They'd move all the damage Over and over doesn't it is intense. And the best part is that a rainbow energy could be moved. The unfortunate thing with Ozzy could have like a ton of different types attackers and just be able to attack with any type you want and we're right now. The weei Vile Jacks He. That card only allows you to move basic energies. Which kind of puts you in a pickle. 'cause you can't play the Aurora energy and abuse it be able to use different type attackers. Which is where cling-clang shines and the newer cards. Kinda don't shine as bright black and white set. Yeah exactly see I I saw. We've island was like. Oh Man I'm GonNa have this crazy deck with all these cards in it and a solid plan for Rainbow Energies at the time and I started playing on. Pto and I'm sitting there. I'm like I'm just clicking over and over again I'm like I'm using his ability. Why can't I use it? I need to be able to move my dark energies and then I read the card and look at that. I read the card in it said only basic energies will thumped on dengue. So I immediately took out. All of the basic energies lesson learned at him regard. Exactly cling-clang was awesome. Cling-clang was really good. I mean it's still would be good if the if the format allows you to be able to play rear candies but talk Size episodes of thing he does like quaking. Punch for a Double Cola's energy and then it stops your opponents pokemon or opponent from playing any item cards. I I have not done the toe in expanded format yet the other debt I. I don't play expanded but those two cards are are pretty brutal sounds sows Bertelli. Another one of the vile plume deck. Scenario is really good. Took second that one stops you from plane items do yeah. The whole format is basically. You can't play items and yet we can't play reset stamp right. She's that was good man.

I appreciate it absolutely. Thanks for having me on. Today's show we're GONNA get to know Al and probably talk about Butts. We'll get to that a little later. Drive to investigate. Was this past week. It's happening right now. But by the time you hear this it'll be just about wrapping up so we'll recap our experiences there. Niantic is applied more changes to the game due to the Kovic. Nineteen situation will cover all that and in a PK. Mine Zero Point. One seven one point zero starting to roll out now including the to Dave you which NIANTIC has actually already officially announced. It hasn't been hasn't it? The game live yet so we got a lot of stuff to cover but first let's get an off in Yaw Alf. How are you welcome? Thanks so much introduce yourself from you all about tell us tell us tell us. We're not going to give you a chance to tell us we're just gonNA keep asking come on. Come on tell I start thanks. I appreciate you have me on. My name is Al. I'm a pokemon goes dreamer on twitch. That is really all that I do. I have a youtube channel. I do some of this stuff but realistically I really enjoyed the live medium a lot. I live in Seattle Washington. Which as you know right now also essentially locked down and not allowed to go outside so it's been really interesting to sit at home and play pokemon go. I know everyone who watches my stream is. Oh boo-hoo this motherfucker lives onto stops on a park with the nest have like nine spawn points. I am I am like I am like the when everyone's like eat the rich. They're talking about me if they're talking about so it's like you never have to never run out of inventory. You never ball. Snow under balls are always in good shape. My balls are always full. I definitely on stream last night. Deleted like two hundred fifty pokey balls and I could see more. We're probably looking. They were losing their fucking mind. It was great but at some point. You know it's I don't need all of these that's great that's awesome. So what team you on? What's Your Favorite Pok Mon? You know the fucking usual. How do you like to play? The game obviously peeve EP. But I mean you know outside of Peoria into it any other way. Let us know a little bit about you. Know how you like to engage with book Mongo. Yeah I mean I play Pokemon go all the same as everyone else does like deep down in my corner you know. I was playing the Shit. Outta pokemon go when there was no I was never really like a rate challenger although I do enjoy rating. I'm on T. Mystic. I don't care about what team anyone on necessarily but my favorite POK MON is art. Acuna so when they presented me teams. I picked Taku now but I've never really been into like the team dynamic like butting heads thing I it doesn't it's A. It's mostly a cooperative game so it's weird to me that there have been these weird rivalries like but yeah. I like a little bit more into the iceberg type. I my very first. My very first raid catch the first day rates. Come out with a perfect. I should have quit that day but At a really good time with that I do collect so I am a little bit. Ocd and people who watch mystery have seen my nonsensical looking naming convention. But I do collect a three times living decks so I have perfects Chinese and I collect lucky level one pokemon. That's pretty specific. Yeah I thought Lucky. He's by themselves. Were too easy so I started. I just got like a couple. Random LEVEL ONE POKEMON and trade early unlucky like I got a level one ditto which just made me smile and then I gotta level lucky level when x unknown a day later and I was like this is it. I'm collecting so I'm up to like. Aw that's cool. Three hundred sixty plus unique lucky level ones holy shit. So it's been impressed. It's a community effort. Like I have a spreadsheet with a leaderboard for people who give me level ones so every level one lucky level when I've ever gotten is like and there's a list of different trainers who given to me so it became kind of fun community thing. It's really cool because I literally cannot do that on my own. Somebody has to catch a loved one pokemon and think you know what Alfonse that. I'll save it for them and I was absolutely floored when people started doing that for me was unbelievable awesome awesome. And what's your history with the franchise? I mean any experience with POK MON prior to go. Or when when did you start getting into the franchise itself? Yes so I have A. I got a gameboy color and Pokemon read when I was when I was younger. Likes literally when I wave release. I got for Christmas gameboy color and read and it was clearly like just love at first sight like I played the shit out of that game. Probably too much and it's sort of waxed and waned pass that like. I played a ton of red. I played like when the golden silver were like you could get the Japanese emulator version before it came out I played like most of that badly translated and then never actually bought gold or silver and then college. I played Jen Four. I played diamond and Pearl after getting laid off from a job gave me a fat paycheck seasonal college job so I bought diamond and Pearl and I played something like one hundred. Twenty hours in five days Because I was just like in College. Not Sleeping. I had no job I was like well. I'm just GonNa play that Shit This and played a ton of it. And then I kind of like always liked the franchise but never really got back into it. Like I played weird stuff. I played pokemon conquest. Do you remember pokemon conquest or yes sure that was remembered? I never played them like it was. It was amazing. I loved that I played a couple of the mobile games. I I picked up a few of the main series games along the way and never sank that much time in any of them. But I've essentially in playing pokemon offsets the the very beginning that's awesome. That's typical I mean. Even even for myself Gen four kind of was like a drop off point for me. I played the shit out of everything from Gen three and I kind of fell off on. Gen Four came back in Gen. Five and JEN six. I started coming back real strong. But that's that's part of the beauty of the of the franchise because it has such longevity and it's so diverse. You saw this this kind of ebb and flow of people's interest. And you know kind of came to a head with With pokemon go and it was like all right. I'm back in. You know I'm I'm I'm back so it's It's always so awesome to hear that kind of everyone's experience with that. But what about the competitive side of Pokemon so outside of Pokemon with? Did you play other competitive? Games 'cause now you're focusing on PDP EUROPE VP concentrator streaming was your PCP experience or your competitive experience specifically in polk? Amman or Pokemon. Go or did you have experienced elsewhere with competitive gaming. I haven't played a lot of competitive video games. I did play a little bit of smash back in the early Malays. A lot of the guys that I played with in that time ended up going going. Semi pro There was a group I was never very good and I never wanted to put the timer effort into getting as good as as they will. I think this narrative is starting to repeat itself with Pokemon. Go a little bit too. Is You know as as people get better and better. There becomes the sort of decision point where you have to go you know. Do I having fun with this. Doing enough joy out of like really diving in and being the best I can or do I go in different direction and I've opted for the most part to start going at different direction but I did that other than that. My my real competitive stuff and actually I play magic the gathering which I love I play magic for like five years so I mean I put a lot of time into magic to. Yeah I plan on and off since the late ninety s I've sold my collection a couple of times. That's all that's a whole nother story but yeah I've been playing that a lot. I like to be competitive there. You know I enjoy competing against people. Enjoy everyone trying their hardest to win. But I found that I enjoy that. Best when you've handicapped everybody in some other way. It's you've got you've got two people who want nothing more than to win this game but this game is not optimized necessarily so magic. That's playing a format called commander or elder highlander. Where you're decks. Have all of these deck building construction rules and everyone is coming with these goofy hundred card singleton decks and you're looking at your hand and what they've gotten you're doing your best. You can win in Pokemon go. That's something like auto recommended right where it's like well. I don't know how I'm going to try and win with Persian gloom and stormy. But you'd be damn sure I'm going to be trying to win this and making every possible play. I can't get there. I actually learned about the whole auto wreck thing through your streams and it's amazing it's it's it makes for exceptionally fresh content and exceptionally fresh kind of approach to a competitive thing because it is a great handicap. You know when it comes to you know what the fuck am I gonNA do? How can I do this? And you see some really amazing plays. And that's what makes it really exciting as a spectator to see like how. How could you possibly pull this offer like? I don't even know what moves I have on the spoke him. Honor you know things like that. All this weird shit happening in real time and you know I definitely appreciate that because it puts that seedier pants kind of expectation on the match which is which is really cool. But you you know you talk about a handicaps in some way so. I saw in your profile that you're actually involved with Geeks who drink. Can you tell us a little bit about that because I think that alcohol could be a potential cab when it comes to your competitive edge for sure indefinitely? Anyone who's hung out of my stream knows that we enjoy drinking and pokemon go simultaneously on a number of different levels. Which I'm sure we'll talk about later. But yeah for the last eight years or so. In fact basically my entire professional career I've worked for a company called GEEKS who drink. It's a national pub quiz organization so we do Trivia nights at bars and restaurants and breweries. So if you go out and you see a trivia night in a bar basically anywhere in the US there's a high probability it's keeps your drink which has been a ton of fun. It's really been perfect for me. You know it's. It's a goofy company. I work from home. I get to sort of do my own thing and have had a ton of fun doing it as you probably know right now. Bars and restaurants around the US are not exactly open for business which is to say that. We're not open for business. In fact the the entire company essentially was laid off about two weeks ago..

Professor Professor Oak knows everything. Yeah of course and a rugged shoreline that's why the pokemon have developed in such a unique way we researchers don't know all but they don't know about their habitat yet but he knows there's raging currents it's like it's it all right so this is actually a little bit of cool lower here because open happiness. They they talk about like. I think oak right now. You're so here you go. So he talks about POKEMON Rangers. So that's cool. Call back to that type of trainer. You know the ranger That's like you know medic and caretaker for wild polka mom where they're they're not collecting capturing Kokomo but they're caring for pokemon in their wild natural habitats. That's cool a lot of muck on his hands. Ashes all the bad jokes today. Somebody's landed on the island ashes. The King of the veggies so the alarm going off is why when Ashen the crew. I got to the island. Jenny was to pull up because obviously they have some kind of security system so when Ascott there the alarm went off as well and then Jenny showed up. Get some are bug action. I bought. You're not paying your tax. Do more damage see. That's cool though that the are Bach actually came out of the poke of all already in an attack. That was cool. Get some dog the first time team rocket actually ever defeated the polka mom legitimacy. Maybe I guess it was to the pig Pinkett. Toros say costume that they're wearing but within on issue to denounce the evil do extend our reach to the stars. I just I like. I love how their motto came into. It was very very nicely. I would wear that somewhat troubled time. Oh yeah about that. He could give them your thunder shock to get along with all the details not pink anymore. The berries were off. We'll just have to catch. Your Australis is soft needle. Kingsway talking pigmy out. That's alright like you look awfully girly as you're paying. You have a guy's voice. I don't think I would mess with that with that Neil King. I don't think I would call it care now. Netted off I think I saw in the bowl of PD article for the episode at this was like the second or third episode in the row where team rocket blasted often unique way. This time by a needle King Tail Swipe man he is charging after this is like the T. Rex chastened drastic world. Yep side maybe Maryland. Stop it it's funny. There's just like they just start throwing random pokemon out like right into the line of fire like come out of the ball like hey guys what's going on you use. It's pink it's no use. It's on a rampage option. Jenny knows what's up. Can we just stop for a second and think they would all be dead? Yeah they would. They would be an island hyper V. Like what did needle king pauses for a second like. Wait what just happened. And it gets bad again. They're supposed to be dead officer. Jenny's pretty sick getaway driver. Scott Wheel is her name wonder woman because she was like. I said that I love how that was animated at so cool as score angle networking super confused. Like boom bar. Amazing she stopped. Neto king without hurting it at all. You tell them Tracy. It's like the right horn. Didn't care I guess. The new king was mad because of his messing with the kids makes sense. Thank you I'll take you other whirlpools and just leave you in the middle of the water. You couldn't just you driven your cruiseliner back to the to the next island you just gotTa leave us in the middle of the ocean. That's best did they get anything to eat. I'm worried about their health. They should've stocked up on PINKETT BERRIES TAX. I don't know misty. What makes you say that it moved? Its arms just couldn't I was GONNA say couldn't use the poker decks but Mer Toga wasn't in the book Nex. Let's see so. This is a funny scene. Because we all knew tracy was kind of a creeper because this isn't the first time he's drawn the female trainers but yeah. It's like the thirst level. It's like he's replacing Brock. So perfectly like they had to bring that back and it's so casually like it's not trying to just ash vs the sketch. He did ventures. Continue Toki. So cute so I definitely liked this episode. I thought this was a really cool episode. But again it's one of those weird sidewinders. That just is doesn't make sense like it. If this was three episodes ahead three episodes behind it wouldn't matter necessarily in the time line. It doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the GS ball or the Orange League. Just will it did it did ash was rubbing it made a made a cameo. But what what did you think it was good so the right it was it was nice. Yeah there's different. No particular like cool animation sequences. No cool music like nothing really stood out but it was. It was just a welcome posed episode but know. I don't know I'm a Weirdo.

"pok mon" Discussed on Gotta Watch'em All - A Pok�mon Podcast
"But today we're GONNA BE WATCHING EPISODE. Eighty six in the pink. Today's Wednesday march eighteenth. Two Thousand Twenty on one of your host Ken Pescatore joined by my co host. Adam Tuttle. Adam how are you what's up? I'm doing all right. I know the world is kind of crazy at the moment. But we're here to talk POK MON and to have fun dude I would agree with you that the world is pretty crazy. Right now it's It's absolute madness to be honest and Pokemon is something that has helped many people myself included kind of be distracted from the madness in the world. And have a little bit of positivity and fun. So that's what we're doing so we need need it yet dude. We totally do but a high been house. You know outside of the madness. How're things are you safe? Are you healthy all that good stuff? Safe healthy went grocery shopping today to get last few Supplies have that go. The shelves are bare and I'm sure they're everywhere but it is what it is but at the end of the day. I have my pack for the end of the show and I'm just ready all right good because I don't have a pack so I I don't know if you will do. Did you see the pictures I sent you so I went to you know? And we're not supposed to be out. I understand social distancing. All they could stuff so I I actually went to a couple of places and no one had packs. It was it was crazy. I I mean I. I was resorting to like convenience stores. Everything I I stopped. I looked and there was none so apparently toilet paper and POKEMON cards are. There's a run out of in New Jersey. So that's the that's the hard stuff to get so You'll just have to open. I'll live vicariously through unfortunately back. Yeah I tried though. I've valiantly tried just well that's all. They can't really awesome. Yeah all right. Well today show. We have POLKA. My Mystery Dungeon deacs. Talk. I have not played the game yet. But I've watched a ton of it on twitch specifically reversal had been stream a ton of it and We'll let you know what some of the critics think. I think it looks phenomenal. Stephanie Nice to look at Amil here. We are from You know think Gamespot was the review that I pulled up. I have a couple of scores that will discuss. We'll take a look at some of the cool art featured in the sword and shield TC G. expansion atom. I know you had a chance to dig into some of this I'm loving the art from the set. It has a ton of different styles of art. So see I love stuff like this nice feature and normally. You're the one that gets to like. Be All hyped about it but I'm pretty stoked about this one nice. It's Nice like I've been messing with all the cards and then just like to see the article online. It'd be like Oh. Oh that's cards. The same artists did. Oh my gosh. Yeah Yeah I like. I like when they do that. Because it shows especially with these sets that have so many cards. It's it's hard to get them all so when you see like the three degrees cards like next to each other. It's like Oh yeah. Three different artists three different styles. It's pretty stinking cool. I love it We have wild area. News been updated new G. Max Pokemon if hit the wild area. We'll dig into that. We have new items at the POK Mon Center including new pluses. And you know how adamant I feel about pluses. And that's we love them and we need them all so it's awesome and Oh man and then we're going to watch long episode. Eighty six in the pink. But I don't know if you saw this. Oh I G M dot com right member. We were talking about the the five hundred dollar wu-liu plush couple of weeks ago. So yeah the the team at I gene pool together. We think we talked about it on episode eighty five and they pulled together they ordered it so it arrived at the office and it is Gargantuan. It's big I mean. It's nowhere near the SNORE. Lacks big but it's very big. But on a bunch of like podcasts. From my gm they were like putting it in a you know in this in the chair with a microphone in front of it like they'd like bringing it around the office it's awesome and that's all you know. Yeah I mean if I had if I had an extra five hundred dollars of fun money maybe but Yeah I think I could live like that. If it was Deli Bird. I would be the fun money I would find. I don't care if I had had come to look at under your couch for extra change. Now you ain't GonNa find 'cause I vacuum and all the time all right. We're going to dig into mystery. Dungeon here so rescue team. Dx came out about a week and a half ago now This is going to be coming from. Gamespot dot com like said so the original mystery Dungeon Games were released in two thousand six. It was a pair of games Rescue Team Red and blue so it was kind of a playoff that but it was from different developer. Different storyline atom. I don't know if you've ever had a chance to play those games. The originally played the original. I had mystery Dungeon Blue Okay. So the premise of the game. Is You wake up one day and rather than being a human you are a poke him on and that is kind of how the game starts and it's cool. They do like a little Personality tests to let you know what starter you would be I almost wish they had that section of the game and I you know I know. They released the demo but if they did that that is a little APP or something like that. That sounds like a real fun thing to do but I would hope that I would come out. Charm manner enter because charm under is the best starter. Canto starter but it's it's a really bizarre storyline and you become a. Pok Mon and you kind of assembled this team of Pokemon to help rescue other. Poke him on that had been lost in dangerous dungeons. And what makes this interesting is? It's a rogue like game so the dungeons are procedurally generated. So every time you go into a dungeon it's kind of a new experience so you get that kind of vibe and feel so right out of the gate. I've been watching a lot of streams online and what caught me immediately was the color? Palette of this game. It looks absolutely stunning super powerful and fibrous and it just really stands out and the art style is kind of this combination of like what looks like painted backgrounds with kind of hand-drawn style. It's almost like watercolor. It's it's really cool. It's a really unique style. It's really pretty to decide. Yeah Yeah it seems that the critics agree where maybe not all of them have given the game great scores but they all appreciate the art style and Color Palette for sure. So what we're GONNA look at here is game spots review and Gamespot. They really loved it they were. I Typically Trust Gamespot. I'm big giant bomb fan. That's all in the family there. So gamespot are usually very unbiased when it comes to how they review games so they gave it an eight out of ten which is a phenomenal score. The review praised the Color Palette and the art is well and they mentioned the soundtrack. That's another thing that a lot of reviewers mentioned is how awesome the soundtrack is a Gamespot also focused on the game placing. The game play was fun however it could get repetitive. Especially for a rogue like you you would think that when you do procedurally generated stuff that it would stay fresh but apparently this kind of gets a little bit repetitious but most. Rpg's you can't really escape that because you're grinding so there is some grind to this where you have to just grind out these dungeons and even when they are procedurally generated. You're going you know the the mechanics and the game player GonNa feel very similar. One of the big complaints was. There's no health bars and I know in the original game. There was no health bars either. So you see the damage that you're doing to oppose him on just don't know how close you are to knocking it out. Which could be a little frustrating. And like I said I've been watching. Reversal specifically stream this game. He's been doing an amazing job. He did his transfer where he was poke among goat youtuber and jumped platforms over to twitch stream sword and shield and then picked up mystery dungeon and he's.
Pokémon Go made easier to play at home
"Nine antics introducing some changes pokemon go due to corona virus is a blog post on the POKEMON. Go team they write trainers first of all labral community. Day has been postponed which I don't I don't play pokemon go but the idea that there's a thing called labral community day deal like lightens. My heart was shut to ever labral. Labral was always a catch though. Yes because every time you you'd see in the wild average Cadavre and Alec is they continue will also be making the following changes to go. I like gone gone is also great. Have you seen pouring onto like the sequel tumors evolution? Both kind of these one once. Yeah pouring on walls and importing onto all. Yeah I believe I think it's pouring onto okay. Yeah that's gone to and it's like all like sleek I'll tell you right now. Fucking sucks release. I don't like wearing on not pouring on. It's way better than this guy was pouring on three. I know if he was gone three. I'd look at a guy just released three three evolutions. Yeah that's legitimate. All most all have gone didn't have a an evolution for a while. I don't think we're going. I think he was trying to hold second gen on. Don't have lucians or only have two some have like nine E. V. O. Z. That real yeah no nothing. They continue their article or in their blog. Posts will also be making the following changes to Mongo which are effective starting now until further. Notice a one time. Purchase BUNDLE OF THIRTY CENTS FOR ONE pokey coin. Pokey Coin Incense will also last for one hour half hatched distance when eggs are placed into incubators during this time period. Poggi stop so now drop gifts more frequently. And then lastly POK Mon habitats will will increase and more procam on will be appearing in the in the wild us on social media opt in to receive push notifications and subscribe to all e mails stay tuned the Pokemon go team right. And that's all to account for everybody kind of being at home. Of course they don't want you wondering out there all sorts of people. Yeah Andrew Goldfarb tweets in context. Psa Book Mongo is currently selling thirty cents for one. Pokey coin One hundred coins. One dollar incense attracts POK Mon. Two Year location so this people stuck at home right now the also currently last one hour each instead of the usual thirty minutes. So if you're pokemon go player that's all news for you.

"pok mon" Discussed on Lured Up - A Pok�mon GO Podcast
"Bag on and Milwaukee while all available potential shiny pokemon coming back. I like that. You're going to get double start us from doing team go go rocket battles so grunts or normally five hundred stardust during the event with a star. That's up to fifteen hundred leaders normally give you a thousand so during the event with the star piece three thousand Stardust and here's the big one defeating Giovanni is normally five thousand stardust. If you do it. During the event with the Star based on fifteen thousand starts just from beating Jeevan. So you're GonNa be you know you have all month Giovanni quest. You'RE GONNA WANNA knock it out this weekend and drop star piece so you can get that bonus start us because it's double start us. Plus the you know the one point five multiplier with the with the star piece. It's good stuff. Here's the big one during the two to five. Pm Window using a TM on a shadow. Pokemon charged TM. You'll be able to to change frustration there. The exclusive shadow t charged move. And you'll be able to get one of the original charged moves from that pool so what? I recommend not only just to make those pokemon viable. But you Kinda WanNa future-proof your shadow pokemon. So if you've got good starters fucking use that him you know get away. Get away from frustration. Because when if they do you get the elite charged him or they do another Community Day. Recap thing where you can get that you know evolve up you can ultimately have that in the bag in prepared to go. I also recommend the larva tire line is another good one to TM FRUSTRATION. Away that you're Teeny Line. I'M GONNA use it on all of my Giovanni legendary 's like I don't want frustration at all so if I'm going on I've I'm sitting on like almost a hundred fucking charge. Tm's so it's like. I'm going to be going. Buck Wilder has too many. I know I've been saving them. I've been hoarding them. You know so. Now's the time to use them so I'll I'm going to be. I'll probably go through fifty of them between two and five. Pm on Saturday. So I would plan ahead. You May WanNa even label. You're Pokemon A. T. M. or something like that so they're easy to pull up. You don't have a lot of downtime sorting through your procam on. You may want to do that ahead of time. But this is cool. This is something that we didn't think we'd see and now we have it so be prepared for it and while the finally wall the team leader. Rosters haven't changed. Giovanni lineup has changed slightly. So he was. You know the always starts with Persian. We know you always finishes with the legendary but that that second pokemon varies so have powered on and cloister were part of that pool their out. Now it's killer and ripe perio- taking their place so Persian to start us. You're fighting POK MON MON CHAMP Makarios little squishy. But that's good to to burn the shields you can even use mel metal for King Lawyer. I would use electric or grasp. Welcome on Magna Zone or Rose Parade for. You could have steel ex. Steel is probably the biggest pain in the ass at all of them. But you can use fighting took on Lou Cario or water type on like Cuyahoga. I like using Kogler Because ultimately when you face N. TAE YOU'RE GONNA WANNA water pokemon anyway and then reappears. Another OPTION FOR THAT SECOND POK MON AGAIN KAYAKERS. Another good wants us in little. Carry you into and You know when you face use a watertight. I mean cobras good. I mean if you don't WanNA use water you can bring guard or something like that but yeah come on. Folks make a splash. Yes now I I'm one hundred percent yoga and I try to use it as often as I can and I've been doing really well in master league with it but who all right. That was almost forty minutes man. That's I think we I think it's I think we're due for a break. Little break you break. You take a nap all right. We're GONNA take a quick break when we come back do a little housekeeping gets a miscellaneous news in and too little thunderous Ray Guide Battle Party and then finally poke the bear. All right. We'll be back right after this And.
Greninja Voted Most Popular Pokemon by Players
"Pokemon community had a vote on the most popular POKEMON. And I gotTa tell you. I was Kinda surprised. That Gra Ninja is the most popular POKEMON. Right now out there in the Pokemon community your thoughts on Gr- Ninja getting the top spot and other pokemon Cario Mimic. You Charles ARD umbrella there. The top five but Pika chewed the most recognizable of the mall is barely even the top twenty and Evey is just barely twenty there so I asked him a friend. What's going on with people's changes in taste in what they love about. Pok Mon I duNNo. I feel like the older generation of Pokemon fans have kind of fallen off the wagon such as you and I and a newer generation of pokemon fans is there and the ones that are from older games. That are recognizable are only because they still take up so much spotlight in the newer games. Too like for example the POKEMON. Let's go e V pokemon. Let's go peek. At you like you could fly your charter around right like you still got those Pokemon and they were still fun to play with and you needed to use them to get to certain parts of the map like they still take up centerfold in the newer pokemon games and I think that's what keeps them alive especially like Ginga gingas. Always in the cartoons. He's in the movies. He's got a bunch of plush toys of gang are everywhere you go? And it's it's they've done a good job of marketing. They market the POKEMON that they want to be front and center right the and you know they. They have a certain set. So we're not gonNA see like a d glit- or something you know making that top list were just gonNa see the ones that pokemon decides to focus on in the new
"pok mon" Discussed on Gotta Watch'em All - A Pok�mon Podcast
"Too busy and not the message that are only. GonNa go with no was big so you know this was. This was an exciting episode. Oh I'm I'm very excited to talk about it because last episode. Was You know differences in the animation style differences in some of the music? And I'm definitely excited to to see how that carries into this well. I'm just excited because we get to see a shiny variant. Just kidding get to see a variant of going to say but it is it a Lotta Shiny. It's like shiny before Chinese existed. Okay with to be honest. I saw something that in the new Jordan Shield anime. They actually have a shiny hunter. They show his decks and it's filled with shiny pokemon as exciting once again. We find our heroes sailing so once again we're we're riding on lap risk again. They can they still don't have food. Yeah they never ate last episode. Right right. They went to the island specifically they never ate. Hey what's that? They were full on Adrenalin. It's a message of bottle. Bay visit food. Can you eat it? There's paper leprosy the most well behaved and loyal pokemon ever already must have thrown it in the ocean. It's a coupon one. Free Meal Ballgame Crystal Onyx. Let me know right away. And it's the they call out crystal. Onyx like right away so obviously. They're not hiding anything in the episode. Obviously it's the title but Glass Crystal Very so now. The story comes out but they're a glass crystal onyx. That's two one off. He is there is there is just like normal rock like onyx is is there granite. Onyx onyx honored. It's just one. Imagine that would be cool. That would be sent onyx onyx. We're GONNA trademark that coke which is famous for having all kinds of crystal glass shops got Crystal Glass. But do they have food? These children haven't eaten in weeks. Looks like they're they're in a town right now with all glass blowers and it's like everything is glass. Everything looks so shiny glistening. It looks like a dishwasher. Dishwasher detergent commercial immediately comes in with their. You break it you buy policy but like you see even the animation like it's still carrying over from the last episode like the expression seem a little bit more characterized remember when they when they left were like the whole blimp thing that was really the the start of the adventures and our giants arc even though episodes fifty three through eighty one or whatever that weird limbo period acts. That's why this stuff this guy yelling at this little girl like you should close up shop. She is she's probably like five she's she's so sad by yourself. Do you. Matteo helps me. Do you run the chaperone. No I'M FRESHER. Helps me yeah? He's four the oldest sibling. Well then what did he say? What did he do class bottle? Yeah it's like the The odds of of walking into an entire city meeting the person that left the note in the bottle that they happen in the water and love. Cartoons. Timing is everything is such a thing as a crystal is. It's like they're coming from the capital of the world here like glass and everything's made glass crystal. It's like you'd think there would have been some pokemon hunters finding this thing already rate. This guy's hair her brother. It actually looks like that silhouetted Pok Mon like Wolverine is it non lab called it. It's this guy just really angry with some gloves on with some claws come on sculptures. That has good. Yep He's got glass blow glass blown like bracelets on but I just can't make anything good enough and that he's got his hands. He just put glass blown tips on them a day. Look great they all just like the real pokemon I want I want one of those collectibles but not to me. He's like GRANDPA's smash. I know who get scared. I would be scared to do. Why are you breaking your stuff? Markle also van. Pitchy is like statues GRANDPA's pokemon come. I would love to have that if I could just find some kind of inspiration. What do you mean what the Geo Dude on Loest? Let me let me give you this website. There's lots of random art over. I'll inspire you starting oetzi store. Do I know complete skull rate? We already have two customers here. Onyx grandpa used to tell me that they already have skype on. And that's what inspired him he means to get to a POKEMON senator to us. It was the Moscow means now that the story line starts to develop here of why he's like why his family got into this in the beginning was because his grandfather saw the Chris Alanis that inspired him and now kind of telling the story of House. Grandpa saw the the behold the power of crystal onyx. Don't Iraq at it for the rest of his life. Grandpa turns is reachable. Ice frazee lay. Wow that's pretty amazing. Pretty Amazing Pretty. Take a look at this. So there's just like Triumphant Creek Crystal Sculpture. He made but it's like it's only like a foot tall to send. The best is their reaction that I was like superfly. Though it looks huge panned out made it look like this giant sculpture again dining need but I can't stop looking at his hair now. I'm thinking of that unreleased mythical pokemon this episode retailing you. Timing's everything. It's the it's right before we get to see this new pokemon. His hair looks exactly like it card on the Internet. Search like all these things coming together shopping easy. We can avoid the checkout line. We pick out. So why is not rocket? Even here displayed his fifth accuser. And they why classes and that's weird he is okay And then you buy they break. We got a role of here. You break it you buy it. L. C. cut scene. That was great. That was I think that was like the first time they ever did. It reminded me like Batman Adam West Batman Bat signal to pay and we sent so we got white. GotTa work it off. You just heard that Matteo and a bunch of kids. Just what does that logo on their aprons again? Don't believe it's glass blowers killed. I mean who'd believe there's an to secret secret society of glass blowers that of course they hear rare pokemon and there. Are You thinking what I'm thinking though they're going to go? Find the ONYX Onyx. I want to honor Sonic's around this island. Where do we start to look? Why does he have the crystal online the sculpture for reference? What we're looking for this is. This is probably my favorite season. The whole net spots the exact sculpture in rock only. It's not even an onyx. But he was like a hound like a police like year. Spell THE SHIRT. You'll find the thief. Here's the crystal onyx. Go find this shape somewhere nature and then Jersey basically. It's like you guys do anything. Or his skills her week. Let's just put them away. So this is a big deal here too though because this was decides toby. This was the first introduction of another to distant sounds and the watermelons speak to. It's Jen to peak at you. Sure lots of times he could blue memory peekapoo right. That's what people are calling it back in the day. Yep Peek a blue. Since I totally forgot about that I forgot to. I just thought of it right now like you now. That's what onyx sounds like. My favorite is that he says that's what sounded a crystal onyx needs. How do you do the difference dude? You know the difference the same way we know what dinosaurs sound like do either never heard this big Joe. It's Muck it's it's you did jinx just right now. I'm still looking for us. He's gotTa be somewhere keep an API. Because I've watched this like seven times trying to find him Maryland. Whales got the power. You know.

Home has been out for a little bit now and we'll talk about some of the cool stuff that has Been found in that a lot of people are having a great time with it. I haven't used it to too much yet but we'll kind of break down what we know so far. Nintendo has gotten very serious about the sword and shield leaked that happened prior to the Games launch. And it's amazing. How slow some of this legal stuff takes to to kind of take action because the leak happened if you remember probably in September or so something like that where images sword and shield were released early yet started coming just started like and they finally took action on that. So we'll break down. What happened there and explain you know statements from both sides. Which are it's pretty cool to see. You know both sides make pretty strong statement. You can get a Free Ball Guy Shirt for your sword and shield Avatar if you act fast depending on when you hear this episode. Because you have to do it very soon from the day that we're recording this and Pokemon go pee gaining a lot of momentum and we'll kind of break out how this will play and could play into the The landscape of pokemon world going forward. And I'm hoping that we we see that as speaking of competitive pokemon you need to see. The Juniors Fiji see finals from the Oceanic International Championships. It's the cutest thing in the world and we'll get there. We'll just talk about it for a minute because it was like the greatest thing ever and really really exciting We have put on Masters News. We we've kind of been like mentioning Pokemon Masters lightly like they've held true to their word of giving this game constant updates and doing stuff to make this game better and They're they're coming through. Dina's doing job so we'll break out what you can expect. Their twilight wings. Episode Two has been released will break breakdown that stuff and then finally. We'll do our watch along with him on the series episode eighty five the crystal optics a lot of stuff to talk about today. Adam I am excited. Are you excited? Dude I'm excited. I'm always on expected. Oh Jeez all right pokemon. Homed been out for a couple of weeks now. You know full disclosure. I haven't used home that much. I haven't downloaded of course on the switch on the phone. You know I've I've gone through the menus. I've looked through it. I just haven't really done much yet. I'm expecting to use this and start paying for the service wants to poke among go. Integration is released which we still don't have a date for but there's some interesting stuff that you'll notice if you haven't downloaded it yet you might as well do it. It's free to download. There is a lot you know. It's a very capable APP even with the Free Plan. But there's too exciting things you'll notice kind of right out of the gate mad at him. I don't know if you've had a chance to look at this so I've basically just played the beginning of it. I got my I got a skurdal and I have a peak attuned a squirrel there and I have yet to put it on my switch. It all right. But you've you've seen the new iteration of Oak Grand. Okay yes okay so this is like the first thing that really took people by surprise. Was This funky iteration of Professor Oak. He's called Grand Oak. He's got these crazy glasses on. He reminded me of like riffraff. Which is like this ridiculous over. The top rapper. Guy Is just absolutely hilarious looking and the other character that we meet is pokey boy which is kind of this little baby version of the Polka Ball. Guy It's really cute. It's just like this little floating Polka Ball with characterization on it so we get to meet these two new characters very exciting to see and I've been relying on the super effective twitter feed to Kinda give me updates because espy. Jay Is all about poke him on home. And he's done an amazing job he's gotten into making infographics and they've been exceptionally helpful for like the layman like me when it comes to this stuff so It's been really cool to see. So I'm going to refer to a couple couple of tweets that he had put out and linked to his twitter. Make sure you guys you give give those guys a follow because there's a lot of good information going on over there for Pok Mon home and other stuff of course but some of the really exciting things that you can do in home. That weren't originally in the The initial release and I actually saw a reversal pokemon go youtubers moved over to the BG. See Get really excited about this. You can mass release Pokemon and you can move boxes of poke Amman at a time. So let's say you're doing Masuda method near breeding tons and tons of POK Mon. You have like just a ton of level one pokemon that really mean nothing to you and you WanNa get rid of them if you do it in certain shield. You're going one by one in releasing him. It's it's brutal but in home you can highlight the up to one hundred of them with the mass highlight feature and release them all at the same time very very you know. Get along like Oh feel of you. Know discarding yeah. There's there's definitely a lot of pokemon go influence in some of the interface here You can also favorite POK Mon. Which came right out of Polka Mongo? So lots of cool stuff there. If you're if you're pulling go player you'll you'll you'll you'll feel at home when it comes to some of the menu stuff and some of the ways we can interact with your storage But like Adam was saying you you you know just for signing up for the free version and registering you get some free pokemon. You'll get a free Pichu. You can get a peach you. There's a lot of cool stuff you can get just for getting going and there's a couple different ways you can unlock poke him on just by doing using the tool You can get a peach you if you complete one challenge You can unlock row Tom when you do a GTS trade you get an E V. When you complete your. I Wonder Trade. So there's a lot of ways that you can just unlock poke him on within the APP. So it's kind of like they're using it as their own way to distribute stuff as well which is exciting and then down the road if you were to complete your full national polka decks like actually having every single pokemon registered in home at same time Eight hundred ninety different POKEMON. You can get Mcgeer no which is really exciting in the color ways. Like beautiful looks really really cool It's super effective pokemon peak. Am CASS DOT COM? They put together a really Nice info-graphic kind of showing you what you can unlock and how to get it. One of the things that we kind of thought was coming. And it's coming force. Here IS HATS POK MON. On so you know the wonder trae thing is already a bit crazy. If you're a competitive player I would stay away from that because you know you can get a poke on on a trade that you think is legit and bring into a tournament and ended up not being able to use it if it's found to be you know shady or something like that just I. I wouldn't trust it but I mean like Shiny Vicini which was never released to date people. Were you know putting that you know trading that in in the GTS and all that so Or in wanted trade? So it's there's a lot of shenanigans going on over. There is just be aware of that. See that's what I'm always afraid of. Yes it's like. It's there's no surprise trades. Well that's how that's how the one or trade works. You don't know it's just like what am I gonNa get today in psychoactive pokemon. So you never know now Adam you you probably have experienced with the TC G. O. Marketplace how you can say like. Hey I've got this trade. This is what I'm willing to trade for right so you know. There's like that complete trading marketplace so the GTS works like that where you can take Pok Mon. Put it up for free trade in the market and say I'm willing to trade this if you give me and it's exactly what you expect it's like hey you know. I would like that Zaba Zaza and I'm willing to trade a wheedle you know. It's there's a Lotta ridiculous stuff that's going on. I'll take that so worth it. Especially if that has like string shot that's how like the jeep marketplace's sometimes to where it's like you know. Yeah I'll give you this I'll give you the Cynthia. But you gotta give me seventy packs or something more skewed packs or it's like ridiculous trades like people will just be like I've got four wheels and I will trade for your year four exhaustion Ford Like right don't think that. That's legit trade. Yeah so but there is ways to find good trades there and you know there's ways that you can trade with your friends by doing some obscure stuff and you know saying. Hey I'll give you this specific level Pokemon for this specific level. Pok Mon and then you could link with your friends so you know there's a couple of different ways you can. You can do your trades. There's the room trades the friend trades. It's very cumbersome like to know one surprise when it comes to Nintendo and how they function with multiplayer in in really any give Hasni. It's always cumbersome and bulky you know hopefully this stuff kind of get cleaned up as we go into the future but because of POK MON home And being able to import pokemon on up into sword and shield. There's been updates. You can get a lot more POK Mon into gallery now like the bulbs shoreline scored align the hat. Pika choose that you could have gotten the like the different Different regional hats when they did that promotion. You could bring those up Mu To the sorts of justice. You know there's a bunch of pokemon again. Peaky DOT COM put together a fantastic INFO graphics showing all the new book him on that are available in Gallagher. Thanks to home. This was updated like as of last week so pretty current stuff and stay. Just stay in touch with them so you can see all the updates Spg's always been on top of it and While we're talking about new POKEMON here too. There was a new mythical pokemon that was teased in Coro. Coro where you can kind of see like half of it. And then pokemon. The official put him on. Twitter actually tweeted a full silhouette of it. And I believe that it's going to be announced this week. But it's this crazy. Beast looking thing with giant claws like you know. I love when they do these silhouettes. Because you you know you get to speculate so hard on this but I don't know it looks. It looks like an aggressive monster. Kinda poke him on like it'd be funny if the color ways are like really vibrant and it has a happy face but it looks pretty daunting but what do you think of this. I want to say it looks like it's electric type but electric you think. Well they'd lose the feel. I don't know I look at my feet and I almost think water but then it has like these hair maybe or years that kind of looked like he could be flying but there's no wings as a tale. It's it's GONNA be exciting. Has these giant claws like people were calling it wolverine and stuff. It's just it's it's very funky but I think that'll be Be Released this week. It's say it's it's definitely an aggressive looking around like you don't WanNa mess with it. You don't want to run to it in the back alley for sure. Yeah when I saw this I was so excited like Oh my God. We're getting something new.

How to Transfer Pokemon from Bank to Pokemon HOME
"The Nintendo attended the S dos. Go Online and sending ten years ago. Launched these other original web service called Pokemon Bank which is like the predecessor of pokemon in home. So what they were able to do now with pokemon home. They have fool compatibility with Pokemon Bank. They have restored the puck him among banks service which you can now use for thirty days for free if you want to transfer all year old pokemon you better hurry because in theory it's free for thirty days so you can get all those on the. Maybe you caught in the days of the Gamecube and through some steps and there's GonNa be. There's youtube videos that maybe there's one then the Mike Or putting the Mike as the link so please put in because it's so fascinating You can transfer them from the from the Gamecube the GPA from the GB later than intended the s from the nintendo Ds to the original Pokemon Bank service and from the banks service. You can go to the three eighty s which is the successor to the D. S.. And then from there you can put them in parliament home and from Buckingham home if you want to. You can transfer them into the switch games so what talking here. Four five generations of consoles that are there now have some basic form of transfer between them for pieces of data. Because if you think about it. The pokemon is essentially a piece of data with the code and some abilities. And like Doc. It's it's a piece of data that can travel in time from the days of the Cuban the all the way to parliament home now and I think it's just incredible that you can do these any. It's complicated it gets complicated. If you WanNa do this whole thing you will need cables and old original hardwood but you can do it and in fact I am doing it. I still have my gb in my Nintendo DS and the three D. S.. I don't have a key again cube but I was able for example to get a my Pikachu Mike from Pok Mon yellow so this is the the virtual console version version of pokemon yellow of course That I had on the three D. S. that Pichu is now in my book him on home and I can transfer to him on sword and shoe that AH see. You went from the Three D. at some three D. S.. There's a a Nintendo made these. Utd called pokey he transferred Hooky. Transfer is basic emulates. What the Diaz was doing it recognizes if you have virtual console games installed on your the device and it says okay? Do you WanNa take these from the virtual console games and you WANNA put them in Pokemon Bank and then from there you just do the bank to home transfer So I have to get my three s now. Get your free the download pokey thorough and poking and poking mom bank you can find them on the shop Buckingham Bank. You can use as for free for thirty days again and then you just go from there. It's it's really remarkable to hear and it's so unusual because you know most of the time Vegan again companies they don't care about backwards compatibility but this is like next level. I mean there are a lot of like the issues with this which isn't perfect right and people are upset about and like some ways of wild some ways I do actually do understand but but just the idea that this exists like we need to step back and realize how incredible is that Nintendo in the puck among company are enabling this kind of thing because it's wholly unnecessary but amazing so yeah and just to give you a frame of Reference Pokemon Coliseum which was intended Gamecube game came out in Europe and America in two thousand and four so that's a sixteen eighteen year old game that in theory I mean in practice you can if you have the proper equipment you can transfer data from that game all the way to your I phone with the with the home app or to your Nintendo switch which is frankly. It's just a remarkable technical
"pok mon" Discussed on Gotta Watch'em All - A Pok�mon Podcast
"Quite the gym. They have now. They're like a clay pigeon like skeet shooting range using water gun to like destroy clay pigeons out of the sky and you tracy can draw grow as teachers pretty good now. Let's so something that is cool here is throughout all this competition. Ash is very supportive of his. Poke him on to the point of saying like look. Just give it your best shot like give it a try. And every time. That squirrel succeeds he super proud and I really liked that dynamic of showing like hey man just just try your best. And I'm I'm here for you. And he just happened to do really well so he gets rewarded for it. But it's cool. That ash has that perspective of. We're here just to do your best. The intensity they hit it at the same time. Tracy and it's like it broke and Tracy's like what am I looking at right now. He's like. I put the glass. The goggles is before anything happened job. Squared off you're really so that's what I'm saying like. He's he just finds out it's a draw. He goes all. He's upset but then he immediately you know gives credit and congratulate skurdal. I love that. It's a coughing coughing. It's primarily how did I not get that one eight Europe? Tell me what it is so let me ask what is a wave. I don't understand you just ride the wave interesting. I like her toss. I like the way she throws school. Here's returns backwards. Nope see it's animation. Was wasn't a recycled animation. I like it like that. They re use that. I think the way they animate ash in this art is a little bit different. He looks it looks a little bit more. Cartoony and short and stocky mini brock overhear. Yes exactly even that Far Away Pan. You still saw sure he was. And how like ear right? You can see how Mr Julius they changed the first part Tall Tracy. Those people are talking about like sissies just like who are these people but just you just go with the flow of what what I like. Though is that ashes so and crew or like so unimpressed. Like they don't even think it's a threat at all that they're here. Who just like this again. The seaweed was like the rudder blower fan thing propeller propeller sometimes. I just can't figure out what we're saying is golf so is a little flashback to what happened. When they're sub went down they had gone through the thick seaweed and James to the rescue. He got the wrong Straw. See what he did. He did a good job he did save the day. I started swimming as fast as I could. Not Knowing whether I'd make love the way the money and the amount of times that like James is upset about something either just Jesse or meow comes over like slapstick upside the head. I love it so good tragedy. But nobody's giving them credit. That's what I'm saying. James Never gets the credit hire the fishnet has its magic carpet. Get it close Blah. Aw so I just swim the other way out of all this stuff like they don't even care about Piquiachu anymore. They just want the blast. Those within the skurdal. They broke to solve again through through the break. A break all the I love that screen. Yeah blasts toys is just like chilling like come on man. You're you're water POK Mon. You're good our you know. What do you have an idea whenever a car get stuck in the modern south always has the answer to every problem? So why don't we just went outside and give this summer? Lena plush good idea that's a great idea? Meow cheesy animation. It's worth a try now. Blasio he's like. Oh Yeah I could swim and like last night's clearly saw them. It's like he's a guy wanted to save even though say with his eyes told you like how he lands right back in place obscene. He's gotta he's gotTa be nice. GotTa Save the. Save the bad guys just to save face. William look look like surprised because you there for. That's a sweet. Move that package you just did. I don't know what that was like. It was like a thunder shot but he was able to like direct direct like a bolt straight through the water using his tail. So awesome and the one two punch of last week's blast off there. There's no way that that would have been a direct hit on in wave ride sissy. You Haven't explained any of this so you know this. This is a nod to the beginning of the episode. Where you know ash falls off lavers when they're just kind of cruising and now he's got to stand up and I'm a winner not a quitter. Confetti gun does pursue got those little fins you fixing lake underneath the Water Act. They actually just don't move up and down just on like peg swivel seats now. This is messed up man because she talks about. Are you just got to go down to the buoy and come back then? She surprises him with you. Have to stand on your pokemon and then in the middle of the race. They start battering into each other. Like she didn't say that this was going to be like a bumper cars thing at all like. That's that's messed up. She withheld that information. Tease legit.
"pok mon" Discussed on Gotta Watch'em All - A Pok�mon Podcast
"Gifts. So you're GONNA be able to get a. I guess they're going to do it. I don't know through. Qr Or online codes but your distribution system that that Pokemon is done for a long time will now be through the home hub. And you'll be able to do that right from your phone You're also able to trade. Poke him on and I think that's how they're going to do this with the room. Thing where You know you're able to trade. Poke him on that. That's deposited in home and you don't even ever have to touch a copy of the Games you can do it straight from home home to home. Which is really exciting That's cool now. What does this cost? I think that's what we were really worried about because bank was an awesome service very limited capabilities but it was five bucks a year so it was like nothing. So what does this cost a couple of different ways you can pay for it? There's a free plan which has limited features and we'll talk about the differences in a second but the premium plan is three bucks a month five bucks for three months or sixteen bucks year to ninety nine four ninety nine fifteen ninety nine. It's still not bad because of all the extra features that you're going to be able to get With the premium version. So now what's extra in premium? It's really just. The basic plan on steroids would semester with extra features here so if you have pokemon in the bank currently the only way to get him into home is with the premium plan. So if you don't have premium you're pokemon will still be there in bank so long as you're paying for that service but you're never going to be able to move them into home without premium in the free plan. You can deposit thirty poke on which isn't bad. You gotTA think about it. If you've got ten great POKEMON YOU WANNA move up. You don't need a lot of spots. But for the premium plan you deposit six thousand Pokemon so this is going to be for the people that have been using bank for years and years and years of just have tons and tons of Pokemon that they're just dumping into the system which is pretty cool `wonderbox so you're gonna be able to do wonder trades as well with the free plan you get three to time with premium plan ten at a time. Not too big of a deal there. The backed the global trade system. You're going to be able to do one. Pokemon on the free plan. Three POK MON in the premium plan again. Not Too much of a real weight there between the two And then finally this room trade thing and again we'll get more details as this comes closer but with room trades with the free plan you can accept room trades with the premium plan. You can accept and host traits so. I'm assuming that you know initiating that trade sequences only to be able to be done by people with premium more INFO to this Will come on the soon But then the big one here is the judge function. So when you have premium you're able to judge all the pokemon that are in your home and judging will allow you to see the vs and Ivy's Year pokemon which is going to be very important especially if you're doing trades and you WanNa pull that data up and it's going to be cool because you could screen shot at and database it and record all that stuff is just gonNa make a very robust trading experience For that so there's there's just so much going on here and I'm really excited for this so my question because everybody can have on it. Say I get one month and deposit six thousand Pokemon who chooses thirty that I get to keep? I don't know how that's GonNa work. I know that that with bank. Like if you're if you're your subscription lapsed there was some kind of grace period But people have lost complete collections of pokemon. Before you know because they let it lapse and then you know it'll the little you have lapsed period and then they kind of hold it for you and then if that period extends then you know they disappear off the cloud forever so I don't know how that's GonNa work. It's a really good question we'll have to. We'll have to find out. Maybe we'll post that on the on the twitter and see people can come through with an answer. That's a great question though. But I'm excited about this but what I'm not excited about. Is that launch? This will have no pokemon go compatibility. And that's kind of a bummer. Because I know a lot of people were excited about this. That have never even played a main series pokemon game before and they were gonNA use it exclusively for go to be able to not trash all their pokemon go and just dump him somewhere so they're at least living still in their collection rather than having to transfer away now right now go you can store up to twenty five hundred. Poke HIM ON. But you know compared to the six thousand you could put in home. It's it's nothing now. There's a great info graphic that they put up and it's kind of this flow chart of how everything works so you're going to be able to import with premium. Import POK MON FROM BANK POKEMON. Let's go and eat. Pichu pokemon go ultimately and then it's a two way street for Pokemon sword and shield so it's Oregon Shield. You can bring poke him on in an out of home but with everything else. One Way Street once you bring him in camp pull him out just like importing pokemon from pokemon go into. Let's go you could bring him into the game once there? That's all she wrote so again. This is more of something that will benefit players. That are invested in the franchise. Either either in the past or present or future and bringing those pokemon in there so ultimately down the road you can do something with 'em besides just you know and go go perspective sending-off Professor Willow to to turn them into candy. Now you'll be able to actually store them. They're still there. And you know have value because you can trade them and you can earn. Bp by getting the Pokemon home points for putting him there. So I mean I clear you know five six hundred Pokemon pokemon go box. You know every week or even more than that so I might as well just positive into yeah I might as well the positive into home get credit for it even if I get rid of them and release them once. They're there so lots to do. No no release date yet but Avenue you interested in this is a pre or free. I mean free for now I just I mean. I don't necessarily have anything I WANNA put in there. I don't have the old games that I want to throw stuff in. I'm the same I I've not a bank user but the exciting part here is it's kind of motivating me to go through the old games again and start filling out the national decks and I know that that is an ridiculous chore but now it's just because I can keep track of it. I'm kind of motivated to do it. So maybe maybe that'll be something we'll do here on the channel but I'm excited for this. I think it's good that it's bringing options and it's going mobile. I like the fact that it could be on switch as well. So you're gonNa Kinda have different ways to play and more connectivity between accounts and all that stuff I'm excited for it. We'll just have to see when it comes out all right Adam g Max. Event IN SWORD AND SHIELD. You want to run through this really sweet. There's not too much to it but it is exciting because we do have some new stuff. That hasn't been in certain shield before this is coming from POKEMON DOT com milk. I think that's how you say it military mockery. I think it's mockery. There's no K but you know. Carry the adorable cream. Pok Mon will be featured in pokomo sword and Pokemon Shield Max raid battles from January thirtieth. Two thousand twenty two February sixteenth. Twenty twenty special military may appear in Pok Mon dense throughout the wild area. These military will be able to gigantic Max after evolving into alchemy. You know you catch it as a as a military but I. I wonder if it'll carry the G. Max tag even as milk dairy. It may not but that'll be interesting to keep track of But yeah once you off its alchemy. Then it'll be able to g Max and then What makes this really? Exciting is the release of two new sweets as rewards from doing the G. Max the star suite and the ribbons sweet. And Adam I don't know if you've dug this at all but there is a one billion versions of Alchemy that you actually you know. I think it's sixty three. There's IT's something. Like nine different forms and seven variations depending on what kind of sweet it's holding For each so it's sixty. Three total varies much work. That's exciting though it's not. Hey don't forget you have Chinese as well. And then you have starshine es and square shines so how how many hundred twenty six or one hundred eighty six whatever. It may be but this is really cool. I'll put a Lincoln and description to a fantastic article from Nintendo wire dot COM. That kind of details how to how to get all the different forms but you get the star suite and the ribbon suite two unreleased suites. So far in certain shield will be released along with this military. And that'll get you the different forms and you know this is been amazing. The way they're able to soft patch the game. The game doesn't eat an update and they're able to push these different things in the background to give us more stuff to do with events and everything. It's motivating me to stay connected to the game and it doesn't require an update so you just log in and if you're connected online boom the update is there and in remember. Some people have said that aren't necessarily a Nintendo online users. Like how the heck do I get this? You can connect through wild area news in your settings. Make sure you go list. Go get that news. Update Your Game. So this is really exciting. I like this when they did bird. You know they did the magic carpet. Did you know all these different pokemon that were featured in g Max Raids? It was a lot of fun. It was really exciting and I know our community was very very active in rating. And you know they still do that. And it's been cool in our discord. Is the voice. Chevy seen the voice channel popping off in the discord. It's so no I haven't. That's what people going on the voice channel. They're they're using the voice channel to chat while they're rating. It's the coolest that's cool. I know it's so cool. You know unbreakable in our community has done a great job of kind of rallying the troops and get people involved in the discord She's aren't new admin in the discord. It's fantastic to have someone that we can trust. That's very very capable in there and She's doing a great job. Yeah I'm looking in the discord the other night and I'm like dude. There's people in the in the voice channel what the heck is going on and then like I jump in. And they're like Ken. How are you what is going on here? We're all rating and it was just. It was really fun. And then we're tagging people and bringing people in and they're like what the hell is going. Our not used to this is really really cool. What's happening there? And you know it's all thanks to these events that are happening in game in the parallels the pokemon go or awesome. Because you see this kind of social stuff happened in pokemon. Go all the time now. It's happening in sword and shield and people are connecting online a lot of fun and Super Super Cool. Well I'M GONNA have to stay in and certain shielded up instead.
"pok mon" Discussed on Gotta Watch'em All - A Pok�mon Podcast
"What's going on? Welcome to episode eighty-three of Gotta. Watch them all bringing together trainers from every corner of pokemon Phantom before watching along with an episode of Pokemon series. Starting all the way back in episode one but today we're going to be watching episode eighty-three fit to be tied. Today's Thursday January thirty first. Two Thousand Twenty. I'm your host. Ken pescatore joined by my co host. Adam Tuttle Adam. What's up. How are you welcome? We're GONNA have an awesome episode. His ally lot are you. Are you fit to be tied? Are you? Fit ANTI FIT to be tied. It's a weird title man. It's it's weird. I don't know when I read it. I was like. Is this supposed to be funny like I? I don't I don't know I know I just like is it a pund. I duNNO I. It's it's weird art on today's show. We have new information on Pokemon home. That's very exciting Still no release state but we have details on the product itself. We have new G. Max event going on in sword and shield which is really exciting. Pokemon go is bringing the love in February and then we'll finally watch along with episode eighty three fit to be tied to wrap things up all right pokemon home atom. Have you are you still on that? Sword and shield grind at all. You still plan. I dove in a little bit I got to wear. I needed to go next. I think I'm in the icy area. Just crossed the bridge and all of a sudden it's icy so like I'm excited to hopefully see Mr Mine I. If that's the area you see him in but with that being said I then quickly flew to the wild area and did some rates up. Dude I'm telling you it's so hard to extracted. Yeah and then I caught like twenty or thirty more deadly birds trying to get that shiny and I did not ice it had. I think I'm at I think up to six hundred fifty deli birds now and it's like you know once you hit five hundred you don't necessarily have to continue to feeding them. 'cause you're at full odds at that point but You know I'll I'll take the little bit of x. p. just to grind grind out my party with one. Cao's you know from my lead Pokemon. That's really all it takes but okay pokemon home. So what is it and I think this is Not a new concept but there's GonNa be a lot of new features of what this what this actually is. GonNa be alright so this is coming from. They have its own landing page home. Dot POK MON DOT COM. We still like I said earlier. Still no specific release date but we know it is coming in February. My Bet is going to be February. Twenty eighth you know like the last zero our moment of February. You know the thing will come out but it is coming sometime this month. Which is very very exciting and what it is. And I'm going to read this directly from home. Pokemon DOT COM pokemon home as a cloud service for Nintendo switch compatible mobile devices designed as a place where all pokemon can gather by linking the same nintendo account to both intendo switch and mobile version of pokemon home. You'll be able to access the same pokemon boxes on both versions with pokemon home. You can move between move pokemon between compatible games and trade on the go and more so. This is cool because we've had pokemon bank in the past. This was a five dollar a year service. That allowed you to dump your Pokemon into bank and store them in an ultimately moved them up to the newer game now. There was a couple of different things that were incompatible with bank. And you had to use like transporter and I'm not GONNA go into how all that stuff worked. But you can ultimately take pokemon from all the previous games. Put Him into bank and move them up to sun and moon now. That sword and shield is here soaring. Shield is not compatible with bank. We have pokemon home which is going to be taking over as this hub. That Pokemon Bank ultimately is compatible with depending on how you sign up for bank. And we're going to go into how the different plans work and it's very very simple very basic. So what you're saying is I can keep all of my pok mon. Yes so I mean if even if you have pokemon that we're from the original game boy games ultimately if you follow the right protocol you can ultimately get them into bank and then from bank into a sword and shield so long as they're in the Gallard decks. That's the one thing you have to remember. You know what these tools are for is to bring pokemon foreword so the Pokemon that you could bring into the newest game have to live within the decks of that region for them to be able to be deposited into that game so I can't break the chop back to the blue version. We know you can't go back in time. He can't run. You can't bring your g Max. Alchemy to back to blue now. But what's cool about this and I really think that they're going to hit a home. Run here is instead of just being like a safety deposit box for your pokemon. There's going to be a ton of functionality. In addition to the whole storage cloud storage aspect. And that's where this gets cool. So we're going to start here a national POLKA decks checklist. And if you're a nerd like me. You're all about the checklists so this will allow you to keep track of your national DEX now getting your pokemon from whatever sources they get into home will track on this national decks checklist. And what's cool here is if you bring in mega evolution pokemon or Jig Gigan- amax a pokemon. They will also show those forms itemized and separate within this national decks checklist. So that's really exciting. Because you're really gonNA have one spot now to keep this master checklist and this is going to be cool online to see people posting their lists and he's doing it friendly competitions and all that good stuff Another really exciting thing is. You're going to be able to see all the available moves and abilities for the POK Mon in the national debt screen. So you get a ton of data. It's it's really cool. You have something called your room. I guess this is going to be like your cloud room here that you can ultimately decorate with stickers that you earn within home challenges these challenges are going to be exclusive to home so this makes it exciting again something else to do besides just the positive. You're POK Mon. You'RE GONNA get the battle data that kind of stuff that you used to be able to see through global link like what Pokemon are being used. What moves her popular that kind of stuff? All that data will be there Global Inc by the way is going away at the end of the month so Press F you know in the chat for for global and if you were a fan of that but it's going away. I'm sure that future competitions and stuff will all kind of be routed through home some way. Somehow we'll have to see But YOU EARN. You can earn home points. And this is where they're Gema fighing the process of storing your POK MON so by Depositing Pok Mon into into home you earn points and those points can then be converted into BP that you can push if you have your your game linked to your nintendo account and home linked Nintendo Account. You can then use those BP in sort and shield to purchase stuff. It's exciting makes a really cool that yeah you're able to like do activities in home to actually earn currency for sword and shield. That's really cool. Heather tying those two things together. Yeah I mean I haven't run out of money. I mean I've bought like I think all the teams and stuff and I still have like thousands upon thousands of dollars right but BP is is different than TM's BP. You're going to have evolution items in different. You know stuff that. Oh Okay yes yeah. We're not talking about gold here polka coins. This is actually. She gives us lots. I want what I want more. I'll man Duda last. I checked I was sitting at like you know million watts or something stupid. So it's like they'll never run out of that either but I I like how they're tying them together and the home is going to be on the switch and on mobile devices compatible mobile devices so they're really pushing people to use it on mobile because that's where there's going to be additional features that are not available on the switch for us which version mystery.
"pok mon" Discussed on Gotta Watch'em All - A Pok�mon Podcast
"Lettuce now are Adam you WanNa talk about The new sword and shield. Tc expansion block the POKEMON DOT com put together some stuff and I need you to help me understand it well. So essentially they just kinda showcase rela boom Cinderella's and Intel Leon just kind of go over like a simple use them all real basically as a stage to So you're gonNA need to evolve him twice which this ability on a stage. Two isn't necessarily the best unless you're using something like rare candy. Still it's I don't because because it says once during your turn search for up to two grass energy cards and attach them to one of your pokemon shelf here deck and it's coming for your deck and we've seen this would like vehicle and it's it's tough because you need those energies back in your deck so unless you're playing cards to get your energies back into the deck. You could run into the issue of needing to use that ability but not having the energies in your deck right if you're pulling yeah discard whereas Cindy's is it has an ability called liberal or liberal. I don't know how to pronounce probably something Libero. That's how I read it but once during your turn when you when this moves from your bench to the actor spot you may attach up to to fire cards from your discard pile to center. Now you're talking about that. That's awesome but again. That's it's kind of like a similar ZAP does affect from team. Oh you bring it from the accent which is easy. You just use switch Cha- Alana anything like that you get you get into the active touch two fires. Us Flare striker hundred ninety damage that huge sum Jack is only have one eighty but yeah and then you discard to to energies. So you describe the fire you play switch you. Bring it to the active. You'll even need to waste energies. You literally just play four switch and you've got this yes yes oh wow and I guess in their little blog post they say you know in Sports Delib. The Libero is a defensive specialist who spends most of their time behind the attackers. Maybe that's why your name. It's a sports thing. Sports Ball sports kick. I yeah so but like fire has so much support with welder. Being able to attach to fire. Draw THREE CARDS RIGHT. Like what so. There's a lot of support behind center is so they definitely want because they know it's as fan favorites so they want that card to be really playable then he got Intel Yon Shady dealings. We've seen this on alone nine tails when you play. Pokemon from your hand on your on your turn. You may search for up to two trainer. Cards reveal them and put them into your hand. I believe the element nine tells was item cards but still it's still a powerful move. 'cause you can search for an supporter you can search for you know a great catcher something useful. Yeah and then it. Basically it's a bullet hundred twenty detectives twenty damage to one of your opponents bench. Pok Mon not bad but not the best then. This is where things get crazy is me personally. I've been messing around with Dark Ryan Umbrian Jax tag team which is weak to fighting but it has a hard time verse view to New and like the fire dex and so here's this stone journey. It's fighting tight with two hundred twenty. Hit Points Guard. Press for one. Fighting does forty and next next turn all the attacks done do it is reduced by twenty damage and to twenty at the highest. We've seen for you know a basic POK MON A v V. Yeah so I mean so. That being said So they want you clearly to make grass good. So we're going to see an increase in grass DEX if this becomes popular but grass gets destroyed by fire. It's all it's like the checkmate so you're GonNa have so many decks now that are just with you. Face one deck you lose all its it. Seems like the between the primary starter types that that the rock paper scissors is like very strong here. Like he you know. I don't think he'd be able to escape alive. If you were to get paired with you know.
Pokemon Sword & Shield DLC: Here's Every Returning Pokemon Confirmed So Far
"Been a lot of news this week and we're going to just hop into the The first just a bit of it here and it is Nintendo and they had an intendo direct. This week is more or less a pokemon direct. I mean literally was a Pok Mon direct And they revealed pokemon sword and shield expansion pass. And for what. I'm what I think. I wrote this down correctly for forty five dollars. There's your adventure continues with pokemon sword expansion pass containing new stories to experience new pokemon to encounter and wild called areas to explore. You'll even meet new and returning legendary pokemon along the way. The expansion packs contains two expansions releasing in winter. Twenty twenty and in Spring of two thousand twenty respectively gotTa throw in respectively the following the L. C. is included the isle of Armor Scheduled to release these by thirty. Well man they jacked up the the dates for this or are you talking about expansions I mean and how fast is it to get through that game. Well it's is you know from what I've gathered. It's pretty. It's a pretty easy game so I I think your sister said she got there quickly. Yes she said she just kind of like they just want money for expansions. I kinda cheated. Then I know But so basically The Isle of Armor is scheduled to release by June thirtieth twenty twenty The Crown Tundra era scheduled to release by November thirtieth at twenty twenty. I don't know why they had include that again. But they needed to and so this year basically like into year yes yes towards mid to end. Maybe I mean our garage so purchase benefits when you purchase the Pokemon Sword Expansion Pass.
Pokemon Sword & Shield's Expansion DLC Explained
"Poke them on the announce a season pass poke expect. DLC POK MON at them do they call it an expansion passing a season pass. Okay so this is the first time that they are foregoing making a third game or sequels to the existing games and just strips doing post game content. which is I personally? Think is very neat and like a good direction for them to move afford because it was kind of a slog to have to start from the very beginning to get all the new stuff. What's an example of a previous generation? Like what are the two uh-huh after game diamond and Pearl would be the original games. And then they'd release pokemon platinum or or like red and blue but then there was yellow. Yeah okay or black tube way to Omega Son et Cetera et CETERA. And I am A. I'm glad because now you can just jump straight into it and they're air for their releasing expansions for thirty dollars versus a whole release in a bunch of people are pooh-poohing as like. Oh this stuff that could have been in the game but that will never die that will that will never die so for thirty dollars you'll get these two expansion passes time for deals exists exists. Oh boy well actually So I'll of arms coming in June of this year with a and then Crown Tundra later in the fall and you're going to get like a new rival a new master or like a bunch of other characters. Interact with this new map map. The wild area right kind of like the wild area area. It seemed like they were also on top of adding more to the wild area. There'd be like another town to visit possibly another gym maybe a couple of gyms but they're adding new legendary pokemon. There were missed in the original release of this releasing cub Fu which will evolve into earth she fou- and has two different forms and They're releasing like a balloon. Dear thing named cowl racks which grant psychic. It's pretty exciting. 'cause that ever been done before. Yes okay. Yeah it's been it's been done before but the exciting part is they're bringing I'm back all of the legendary is and a couple select. Poke him on from the previous generations that they were saying like. Oh they're never coming back in two hundred pokemon or something something on roughly two hundred including legendary so that pairs down that number two. Maybe like one fifty ish but still like a good chunk and they teased dowd. Designs designs but models of existing pokemon. That would be coming back and it's a lot of. It is fan favorites that got skipped out on And I think it's pretty fucked. Need a bunch of cosmetics on top of that next. Those Pok Mon will be like even. If you don't buy the passes you can still use them so you can pull them out of your box if you have them yes or you can trade for to get them and that's stuff. So yeah so the language was if you do not want to buy the expansion pass vehemently against it or you know you just can't buy whatever you can't trade it from pokemon home or you can receive it in game from other players so you know if you you aren't in a place where you can play the expansions you can at least through trading surprise trading or whatever come across these POK MON or even battle I'm assuming that's kind of cool. Yeah it seems like a nice modern direction for a percent. It's like you know instead of doing the shirt g game game or whatever it's like okay we're GONNA put. DLC into the main game like a modern solution to the weird nicest used to do it. I see these kind of hardcore like legacy. Japanese Games Adopting these methods instead of just kind of sticking with this evolving. Yeah yeah say yeah okay. I'm really excited about it. It's funny the competitive. pokemon world loved D- Exit. Actually because a lot of the POKEMON that would be complete tears in these scene gene. We're like suddenly ejected out. Oh let me and it was actually like a nice opportunity for them to rebalance the basics but now with some of those being reintroduced traduced shaking things up which is which is interesting. It's great I like it a lot. I keep people on their toes in the competitive pokemon seeing a one hundred percent. Those hooligans run on wild to destroy the Meta rebuild it exactly. I love it if they said anything. I don't think there's anything in the direct I guess but like the performance of that wild areas still still pretty. Yeah are they actually put into more water They released a patch the same day as the direct I personally haven't noticed. Any performance changes or whatever and a lot of it was just content stuff nothing performance wise which is which is a bummer. Yeah you want that place for as much as presenting to perform well when you're interacting with a bunch of people but it's still kind of
The Longest Ever Pokémon Direct
"There's a pokemon directed that's going to be twenty minutes. It's actually longest pokemon direct ever by at at least again which is yeah. It's usually I think the longest before this was like sixteen minutes. It could be wrong but some something between fifteen and nineteen and that's not twentieth that which makes this the longest. The game is out. What could there be to talk about? So historically they released like pokemon bank and compatibility ability with Pokemon bank the January after the Games in the fall. Come out so I'm assuming they're going to be talking about Pokemon home which will be the APP places on Bank which lets you store your poke them on and then transfer answer your old pokemon into the new game so you can get them on like from pokemon. Let's go and Pokemon go into POK mon home and bring them over to Pokemon sword and shield from there and we'll they change. Asia might be working on the National Dick's now probably not just wishful thing. Who knows we might get a few pokemon that aren't in the sword and shield national decks as it is right now but and we don't know and it will probably be event only pokemon like maybe we'll be getting Melton Mel metal? Maybe a couple of legendary is these are all. I'm just guessing. I have no idea but that direct correct happened this morning. If you're watching on June ninth which is a Thursday so look Jan dot com for all the information about that. I know that we will have a very expensive Expansive wiki page on Pokemon home. And how all of that works. Assuming that's what it is about but I'm assuming we might also get teaser for something else. Like detective Pichu for switch which they announced last year pokemon sleep or maybe a new. Let's go game on the magic carpet. Jumping mini game reveal reveal to. Yes I that was fun mobile game and it was fine while it lasted. But hey you already know the note and the Jews and the like Nintendo game. That just has the Polka Mona. You you can hang out with and pet. I haven't. They know that they kind of did that. With like hey. Up Cashew way back at peak achieve an work though. I mean rain rain like I believe the microphone didn't have any technology inside is just like you I would say profanity in the microphone and get really. Yeah like you said you do that. I didn't curse him. I curse them because I wanted to see you get mad and use thunderball inside side of the House. Because that's fun thing to watch I would never want actual life but yeah hey you teach you making peachy mad by cursing at it also. Speaking Pok Mon there is little bit of other news Just so you know you have sort of shield. It's coming up to the end of some certain events. Some will end on January fifteenth. So this is is your last chance at getting Max butter free. That's sounds like a candy. Bar anticancer Max. Butter free where. There's no butter and all the Max WCHS calories. That's a good deal. Yeah hope butter and Max Calories. That sounds terrible. Why would you ever want to do that to yourself but these this event is just increasing the chances for these particular gigantic? Pok Mon to show up in Max raid battles if you have nintendo switch online
Best Nintendo Switch Games Of 2019
"Let's start it off with game of the year. Okay just to get the big the big. I guess it's not really an elephant in the room. I mean we talked about running for But Tom what were the nominees for the Nintendo game of the year for Nintendo Channel Game of the year. The nominees were three houses. pokemon sorting shield Luigi mentioned three supermarine maker to and the legend of Zelda Link's awakening. What a that's that's a pretty good year I party lineup to went back and looked at our lists from last year from twenty eighteen and it was really really good year right but like the the first party titles for is basically just poke them on smash pretty much and comparatively to xbox playstation? There's really really strong showing from Nintendo killed it. The three three of those were in our overall game of the year nominees as well whereas there were no there. There were no Playstation four or xbox one exclusives in our nominees for your overall essentially the middle of the switches life cycle than. It's pretty much kicking. But that's a that's a nice center point. We're in year three if the life cycle of this machine is more like the handheld like Dsm Gameboy. It'll be way longer. Yes the mid point is like in ten years or something. Yeah towards the last seven to ten years. That's when they sent out the garbage. And the Mario and Luigi Abby abby inside bouncers or what. We're going to tell people what one we're gonNA tell. Everyone went wine so we discussed extensively on a previous show Brian. I don't think you're yeah because I think you might have had a different opinion. What but I think most of US settled on? Fire emblem three houses. Probably being pick injury tunnel and and that is the one that won so gene has crown three houses as Nintendo game of the year and also won in people's choice awards for Nintendo switch game as Adema Adamus four percent of the vote choosing fire him. Because that's totally in tune with our community. I I think I mean honestly. LOSERS MANSION LINK'S AWAKENING POK MON monuments. And they're all really good game like if I score them they for me. They're all eight point five to nine point five range game and and then we also you know a couple we saw when we put out our nominations we saw a couple of people being worse. astral chain we only do five nine knees and I think if you asked her on the office probably probably astral train would be number six in that stray right it was Nintendo. Just had a really really good exclusive year. Even you know I didn't give it had huge glowing explosive review but like even though she's crafted world was fun. Game was a game this year. I think there's something like fourteen. Switch exclusive assist man crazy. Yeah I just I just talked about it and what happens when you don't support to systems at the same time this put it that way. I think that if you you look at or listen to NBC episodes from a year ago there was probably in the same way. We're looking at twenty twenty right now. There was hopefulness but also like a little bit of maybe be paranoia or skepticism. About how the year would roll out a year without like a big flagship. Three D Zelda or Big Three D Mario Game ultimately ultimately gave a lot of room to move around in for some of the slightly smaller. Ip's in their stable. And I'm pretty happy about that Firearms like not really my thing. But I think it's absolutely deserving to win link's awakening obviously from you as my favorite Nintendo exclusive deal but that's it's impossible with a separate fee from nostalgia. I'm feeling I mean the thing for me that I love about firearm limits. That Zach was such a can of like nick. He said. I'll check it out but I'm not gonNA play it much. And then he ended up completely getting lost in that game loving it and that just shows that firearm limbs taken another a step from being what we're really used to be this niche turn based strategy game to be something much much bigger and I think we'll see at the end of the. I think the sales are going to be really really impressive for that title. And I'm hopeful that this franchise will continue and continue to kind of experiment like this was a step in the right direction. Splitting the game into multiple copies apiece. That you had to buy like Pokemon was not a step in the right direction. Arise as Nice as it was to get that many. There's just so much in in three houses so you can play it again and get a different story. Yes Yeah I think like Zach story with this game is sort of symbolic of the larger story that's happening with a lot of people would switch You have lapsed gamers whereas you have new gamers and yet people that may never would have bought one of these things before are going in and connecting with these franchises for the first time. And that's really awesome and I think that was the hope with a game like Mario in rabbits to right there. That's a turn based strategy game and I think he was hoping that more people would pick it up. With the Mario Franchise sadly you know it didn't get quite that huge mainstream success and it was a really good game to it did pretty well. Yeah that's all that's I think that's the least for a while. Was the best selling third party. Switch which game yeah. Maybe we'll get a second one next year but I still want more you. RPG in that engine also shout out to Our best platformer of two thousand nine hundred supermarine maker to go away. Yes or that also won another major league best platformer should just be sponsored by Nintendo at this point that category brought to you by Nintendo. Because they are they kind of impossible to unseat in that carry despite some really good indie games coming out now in the platform of category. Still kind of own it to Super Mario Mario Maker is just ridiculous. Yeah the amount of stuff you can do with this. It was also cool that like just as we're having these conversations that game of the year to have an excuse to revisit that game and get the Master Sword which I did over the weekend so we should mention. Though the overall winner the overall winner was control and some lake and and friends MHM remedy. And I know this is a game that Janet really like Joe Championed and but our people's Choice Award was too straining which was a very divisive title here in the Office It was one of those games that I actually haven't been able to put that much time into it. They play like three hours and I did not get into even the me of that. Game is like dig it. It's Sifi animal. We'll crossing the chores and carrying around packages. I I like it. It's it's kind of Kooky but I I will admit that I can see a lot of people being put off by the game and in how repetitive it becomes after a while but like. I think it's really cool I forgot what the final tally was. Way over fifty. Thousand people voted for their Game of the year in the in the reader's choice awards and You know like Some Years Nintendo game will win both readers choice and our editorial Toyota pick across my arms but this year. You know the While we had multiple nominees fire MLB didn't quite make it into the into the top spot. It was I mean I think we knew a few months ago at least even probably halfway through the year that this was going to be really interesting year especially for game of the year stuff because the way it Kinda shook out was that there was a couple the front runners but then a bunch of games are also immensely popular and tied with a sort of third place voting area. The resident evil remake was very very very close. Yeah Yeah it was very close runner up and on. I think it's just there weren't very many stand out what masterpiece games sear like the last year like God of war in red dead came out in saint like that liberal college like fallen order was really good but it's also rough around the edges. Yeah performance issues issues and bugs and same with things awakening. Here's a good example. And obviously reviews are an individual's opinion but last year in twenty eighteen. We gave three tens and in two thousand nineteen we we and the years not done but having any right so that's I think a really good example bat said we gave like at least half a dozen. I think more board games and nine five right like this. This was exactly what you said right. It was a really good year of just create games really good games across the board but nothing that really just blew the roof off and stood out to everyone right right. Yeah when I tweeted out my favorite games this year listen I was kind of sort of taken aback at the variety. not only in genre but Like some of these games were incredibly tiny. Little Indie Games and others were massive. Triple A.. Action platforming games and stuff like that and it's really cool to see that there and then some VR games in there too. It's really cool to see just a mix of all that stuff this year. It'll be interesting next year. You know like like the kind of game of the year award. Darlings like Nintendo's Mario Zelda team were absent as rockstar naughty dog and stuff so it's GonNa be interesting next year with the new consuls and new Halo Halo in last of us. And see what we get from Nintendo with new councils. You always see Teams are sort of like figuring stuff out and there's that sort of like those hiccups that happened around on launch but intended is going to be really in the thick of solidifying. The switch is one of the best new platforms ever made. But we're going to get like their flagship title next year for as we know right now is animal Oh crossing which has historically never really one game of the year sort of like death straining and then it's pretty divisive games a Strand Strand on it is it is the national strategy gale and I love it. Ah Love Animals crossings. All that hurt me. That hurt me to here. I do want to give one shot out to our best strategy of winter which is sleigh. The spire fire which I could tell something was up the spot and get to say one of my favorite games.
Is 'Pokemon Sword and Shield' a Good Game for Kids?
"It's for a favorite game question block. So this one is from Eric Daman who wrote into us on NBC AT AEGEAN DOT Com. And it says dear. NBC thank you for the wonderful shows. Happy thanksgiving I have a soon to be six year old son and and he was really into games his favorites Odyssey and Mario Mega on the switch with the holidays approaching he keeps telling me he is into POK. MON WANTS THE NEW POKEMON game. I have never personally played pokemon game and I'm nervous. It might be too hard for him. Any won't enjoy it. What are your thoughts and introducing kids to game might be too challenging for them? And do you think Pokemon Sword and shield could be fun for him. I just want him to enjoy joy. Don't care about him completing it thank you for your time and happy holidays in the entire Aegean team. Very easy answer. How good is reading? Yeah because this is a game without voice voice acting. Yeah and so you have to. You have to read a lot so mike kids played it really early on but my daughter was also much better reading than the boys that's usually S.. And if he reads well enough or you think that it actually helps him with learning to read. Absolutely it's not so complex and it's so smart how it teaches teaches you how to play the game that I think you'll really really like it. Not An answer to the question but I did forget to mention this when we were talking about putting him on. I think it's wack that there's voice acting in the opening. I know but it's like especially like now that it's on console like in the opening thing when the guy walks out into the stadium and he's like doing spiel. It's like wow. How much better would this be voice acting but yeah I put him on his great for kids like I? You know you both started playing when you were really young right. Wait a little bit more complex now. I started with red. No it's definitely like night and day as far what the systems arm iron sulfur it. I also have no context for what a six year olds like so ca. No no short or that that. Remember that a six-year-old. We'll I just repeat the same thing over and over and like there is a he'll probably just level up even if he doesn't know the nuance of all I think you could still get through it. And they're like certain colors and things that indicate when you're doing better or not as far as like for a super effective and affective whenever you're Ballinger Pokemon you've already encountered it tells you like Ryan what works. Yeah so I think if that's something he's good within and be totally by my son at age was able to remember the most useless in great information like long names of dinosaurs and you know like Early mammals and all that stuff he just retained all of that information and so if you sit down with them and walks through the chart and what Pokemon type is strong against what. I'd bet he will remember all of that stuff super fast you can honestly just get him a type chart. Just give it to them. If if you can read like eight when I started playing pokemon and I didn't have a problem with it but I was also a really strong reader. I was one of those kids who volunteered to read in class shocking uh-huh shocking news too. But Yeah I think as long as he can read it'll be fine and you don't really need to know indepth stuff to succeed beat. That game hated reading. When I was really? And by the way Eric if not then it sits around for two years and then two years you can play. Yeah or you can play it. I guess what I was saying with the me not liking reading. I still got through enjoyed it. So there is still something there for him and you can always Her never learned to read. Actually never there are also some game stores that have Really Nice return policies. If you buy at preowned so alive game stories you can buy it and keep it for seven days and then if not being play you can just go bring it back. That's fair
Virtual Game 'Neopets' Turns 20
"Neo pets were virtual pets and in in fact perhaps the most popular virtual pets ever to have existed on the Internet. So obviously we talked about Tom. Gotschi in a previous episode. But that's a little bit different right because that's like a little virtual pet inside of a physical thing. These yaps only live on the Internet. Okay hold on a second so when you originally this it was sort of referring to earlier when you originally said that you were going to do neo pets I said Oh. It's those ones where it's a stuffed animal and you can connect to the Internet and they live on the Internet to But no no. You're very well weren't very wrong but you wear wrong. Those are web kipnes. That's web kipnes. Okay probably more fun to be honest. Just having on a computer seems like a downgrade. Oh Oh Russ you are so wrong. Okay we'll get into it so neo. Pets have been around for almost twenty years now. Yeah at one point. It was the most popular one one of the most popular websites on the Internet. One of the most visited huge advertising opportunity but That and several other things actually contributed needed to. It's sad downfall until we got to it now where it's a sort of twinkle in Miss Stall GIC millennials is but we'll go back to one thousand nine hundred nine when it began so neo pets started in the UK by a couple that was in college. Actually they were both college age Adam Powell and Donna Williams so adams like kind of studying marketing and Donna was into art and Adam when and made his own online online at agency so this was toward the end of college So throughout call to dating and then toward the end Adam went and made his own ad agency which is pretty smart but the thing is like they were making all these banner. Ads wasn't really doing a ton. A ton of numbers for him. So Adam and his girl Donna. They as everyone does does loved animals. They loved pets because who doesn't so they had a ton of pets. They're kicking around. They didn't have a ton of money but they had a ton of pets for super into into animals and one day Adam was like Yo Donna. I'm on the computer all day. Work in the terrible job making ads. Why don't I just make pets on the computer? Everyone loves pets. Wait what yeah. That's the leap that he made like. I feel like we're missing a few steps okay. Here's here's my guests because he's making ads right Did he maybe invent the punch. The monkey add nope if he loves animals. Why would he make the punch? The monkey add just saying like maybe that was the progenitor neo. Pets was like well. He's got this monkey already. I don't need to punch. Maybe I could feed them a banana. I mean it's very much like key worked in AD agency and had coding shooting experience. Like that was kind of where he came from a programmer he like obviously understood marketing to an extent but was more of like a coder programmer. Guy Guy also nine hundred ninety nine so this is this is after the rise and fall of Tamagotchi like was that at all and inspiration for him. Yeah there has been no mention of Tamagotchi in my my reading but okay yeah I mean it really just kind of boils down to Yo. Let's figure out a way to make money money. Let's make pets online. which is a weird moneymaking scheme but I guess again like maybe he didn't think of it but me thinking about it like Tamagotchi but without having to carry a stupid egg around pretty good? Yeah I mean it makes perfect sense to me again because everyone loves pets. So Adam and Donna Collab- d- But the thing is so adam like coded the website the actual site itself and then Donna was in charge of the graphic design because she's artists. The thing is in two thousand five Adam told wired. There's a really big piece on the pets which we will which I got a lot of Info from so we'll we'll come back to it but he said the Donna literally did not know how to draw which sort of lake issue when it's just the two of you and you hire her on your artist But maybe he came to learn this through working with her Because essentially Donna was tasked with making the pet cells which is kind of key here right like. That's the how the very first neo pets. Were not very cute. They were Kinda weird. Look in some of them. Were literally just like sprite spaced off actual things. There was this one that was like literally a picture like Ajay peg of this British comedian. And that was one of the pets. Selena peg of a human being and you and what did you do with this comedian So I mean the point was still like you could hang out with them them. Raise them feed them play. Was it like like who was it. Like a known comedian. No one I've ever heard of some kind of like niche. It was a very British enterprise so sort of like a British like comedian. Who'd never really wasn't like filler? Like a temp piece of art. Well when it went up on the site yeah it literally was one of the one of the first neo pets. He actually went on to inspire one of the actual Lake Neo pets. So people recognized because we thought he was very funny so anyway. Yeah the first neo pets for Kinda weird looking Adam and Donna Donna. Just kinda seemed like they were goofing around even though they tend to stake their livelihood on this little bit. Because as far as I can recall at this point atom basically was committed to doing the neo pets thing full-time because it turns out. They started like dumping the link on all these virtual pet sort of like link groups newsgroups back in the day and a lot of people were really into it. There was a huge virtual pet community already and I feel like okay. Okay so like thinking back There was like pets with Z.. In Yeah and feel and like I guess the Sims was before. I don't remember when this came out but like now I think that's out there. Is there like troll creature things creatures. Yeah features yeah creatures right. Yeah like Weird Alien Things Ya ya like a it was a thing. It was like a little period of time for gaming. Yeah and I mean like as we said Tamagotchi did do well for a while. They're so like clearly is interest in folk Ammann to write like this was right after Pok mon on people like cute animals you guys. I don't WanNa keep beating this into your heads. People like pets so neo pets even in this very primitive state did super well like literally they were like. Okay Yo. This is our job. Now we're just GONNA keep making this neo. Pets thing that people inexplicably are very into despite like are very low quality and price. Sorry I wanna go back really quick you said that they would just drop links in forums to to get people to figure out about it. Yeah like there. Are these virtual pet sort of like communities. You know you guys know better than me. There's like those sort of like newsletter a group Shannon's newsgroups so and then people would just click the links and be i. I WANNA take a peek at chew maintenance our work yeah yes they would all make pokemon punts. Yeah okay okay. Yes until they got banned by me me so anyway yes so neo. Pets was doing pretty well and it was just kind of not not super complicated quite yet uh-huh but then in two thousand the sky named Doug doering who owned the the during company. Which is this market research firm heard of neo pets which this was like killing it? Like you CH- They had some additional things they had like some basic games at this point. They had people. Even I don't even understand. What are people doing with the pets? Okay so essentially what neo. Pets is or was at that time and then we'll go into like what it ended up. Having more of his you have you can have up to four pets. There was like a limited selection of them. And did you pay for the pets for it was totally free free to play and you could. Yeah so you had like a limit of four and you'd go into like the create a pet center and you can choose which of the pets he wanted. You can choose. What color was you could name Eh choose its personality and then you would have to take care of it? Basically I mean. It's kind of like Tom. mcgauchie literally just like feed it or and like make sure it's Ian or whatever and you play games pretty I wouldn't like level up and grow not really so the other thing is you're trying they get neo points which will come back way. You're going you guys. which is the virtual currency? And you use Zack. To like buy additional items you can go take your neo pets too like but grooming parlour. Go to the vending machine by different kinds of food. The whole thing is like getting money to take care of your pet. It's essentially yes reality basically but yes so. That's sort of the premise S.. which was it had like a very obviously loop right? So you're like going on neo pets to take care of your new pet which requires you to make money and then you spend all your money on food. Whatever so a lot of people were spending hours and hours and hours within the first few months as little promotion as they were doing they had ten thousand users continues to grow? Oh and so yeah in two thousand this American Dude who was like in Glendale California. I believe was heard about neo pets and he was like dude. This is a really good idea. There's legit money ops. Here Ma Dude so doug doering came to Adam them in. Donna was like yeah I can help you guys. I run a market research firm and my my guru. Here's the thing. E was a huge huge scientologist. So he would reference l Ron Hubbard and dianetics as much as possible L. H. L. R. H.. So he with the power of l Ron behind him the power of Zeno or whatever He was the bad guy needs to the back. I don't I could not finish battlefield earth. I'm sorry but anyways with the power of dianetics guiding him he signed on a C. has CEO of Neo Jio Patsy bought neo pets INC him. Co and used his market research team which was already at the door and company and helps to seriously grow neo pets into this huge money making company And Yeah another side about the scientology thing is literally. There are some employees in two thousand five after they left the company when they went on record saying yeah. We were super uncomfortable with how often he was referencing. Rinsing Scientology in some employees said they saw like some actual like celebrity scientologists occasionally get towards the office. Oh Yeah Yeah. 'cause like especially when new was tight I guess like I don't know Tom Cruise. Maybe Little Surrey Neo Pets Travolta checking out. Oh Yeah
Pokemon Sword and Shield: First Impressions
"Topic for this week is definitely pokemon sort and shields shield. This is the eighth generation of POK. Mon Thank you thank you Casey. You reviewed the game. And you gave it a whopping ping nine point three for amazing so I kind of want to start by Kind of outlining. Casey has done the review. Jan has been working on the guide. Jonathan Loves Pok Mon just very excited in his followed the game up to release and is really looking forward to playing. And I am here because somebody needed to host the show Act so without further ADO. Let's dive right in first of all what. What do you want to say just sort of from the outset about the game? Like what do people the uninitiated needed need to know about pokemon sword and shield. Okay Okay give a very brief overview. I have more reviews more than four thousand words long. The video view review is about thirteen hundred words. Long said a lot about this game and there is still room for me to say more about this game but I figured I should stop writing at some point but overall there there are a few very small minor problems with the game that don't affect your overall or at least mine. In Janet's overall enjoyment of it overall degree really enjoyed a play. I think the change in Redmond counters is the biggest factor into by. I love this game so much that change. Just I'm getting really thrown off by the echo in the back of that maybe take off my hut counters. No my thought my thought on this. I think that's why he gave. It's such a high score is because of that one change but also because the amount of POK MON is really substantially frontloaded in the first couple of hours of the game. You breach the wild area in the first two hours and then every day. The pokemon in these micro areas which are immediately opened up for you change and if you went into a pokemon on into the grass you can catch it. There are going to be some POK MON in between the grass or above the grass. That might be too strong for you until you get enough. Jim Battle Enough Jim Badges but otherwise you can catch them so by the time I got the first time I had like twenty five Pokemon to choose from which usually doesn't happen and I was excited about all of my choices and I had a hard hard time choosing just six to take with me. Sure there's so much you really does I think. What are you guys want to know? There's so much right. I went through kind of picked out some of the The the points that I thought really struck me from your review and also just some of the questions that I had about the game And ultimately you know I've been talking about how I'm probably going to pass on this this game because not because of any controversy or anything but just because like I'm not super interested interested in another forty to fifty our game before the end of the year. Yeah I think that like this might be a game that I go back to in a lull but in the grand scheme of things like I kind of want to focus on other stuff and I've always been a very casual pokemon fan so I urge you to convince me that this is a game that I put and I will start by talking about the first thing that struck me that is like supremely interesting one of my big turn offs of like not just pokemon but a lot of Nintendo Games in general is the fact that there's less hand holding in the way that they're handling tutorials in the game. So can you start off by talking a little bit about that that aspect of it that this is a honestly kind of incredible and it's kind of dynamic in the way it handles tutorials so sometimes when you get to a point in the game for example you get to the professor and she asked Oh you you know all about pokemon right and they let you answer yes or no basically and if you say yes she's like okay cool and then that's it which is a super rare because a lot of times is in games. That answer doesn't matter in games that are in choice driven often times when the players given a choice. It's doesn't change very much what the MPC responds with they. Still we'll give you the same information but all that's kind of wiped away in this Pokemon game which is great because if you WanNa know that information you can click into it and just answer honestly but if you don't then then you don't and like one of my favorite things that even remarked on Back when I previewed the game before case he did the review is that you can catch POK mon before being taught how to catch a pokemon which has never never happened in a pokemon game before. So there's no longer the whole. Oh let's show you how to catch pokemon they cut to someone doing it explaining all the steps and for people that have played not even ought necessarily all the puck among games but pretty much any of them. It's always like okay here we go. It's the same thing like everyone already knows it. So having that from the get Geico really made me feel like Oh this is going to be a a little bit of a new take on the formula. That's been established doesn't react dynamically like if you go out and and catch a pokemon. Oh come on. Before the POK MON tutorial session. They just like sort of omit that portion. Do they react to the way like. Oh you've already caught pokemon like we don't need to spend the time doing this. It does amazing the characters will still be in there and the route waiting for you but then comment and then just let you go on your way without showing the catching pokemon catching catching cut scene. That they usually show still. Although like I guess story set up he's still gives you twenty three polka balls. But it's just like you're so rich in this game. I love of how rich you are like you start off with plenty of money plenty of Polka balls and it feels like they kind of just let you immediately get into the adventure in a way. That doesn't always happen in RPG's or even among games just like in general so. I really appreciate that aspect of it. I mean you get like I mentioned to the wild area within the first two hours and then when you get there they don't it doesn't limit you. It's like wild area and it doesn't like the only thing that made me continue onto the next town. Is that my needed to start healing. My Pok I'm on and they didn't realize that the time that camping heals and revives you're pokemon. I can do it from literally anywhere so that was cool. I could have stayed in there forever. But you don't don't. Maybe I shouldn't deadline so I had to keep going. You came over to talk to me a little bit about some of the stuff that you're learning in the course of your playing and the description description of like yeah they. Don't they really stream on the tutorial if you elect not to opt into that like that's something that I've been looking for in games like Zelda and a Other nintendo franchises forever. Like I would love so much if the next Zelda game you ran into somebody and they're like Oh have you gone on an adventure like this before and if you just you said yes and then you can just skip all the tutorial stuff and not have to deal with all the pop ups. That'd be amazing. So I like that that this game is doing something in terms of tutorial royal and like. I Know I've talked about dragon quest eleven forever but lun dragged muscle level to eleven. Does this amazing thing. Where every time you boot back into the game it gives you a plot synopsis of what's happened over? The course I like the your time with the game so like those two in tandem is the ideal situation for me because like I ended up taking so many breaks from games and coming back to them. You know weeks later because of the nature of our job at that it would be incredible. That's one thing I completely forgot to mention in the review when you bring up your menu in the top left corner corner. It tells you what you need to do next. uh-huh that's always there in your top left and also in the bottom of the screen in the menu. It's always telling you things that are interesting like there's a blizzard somewhere in the wild area or you can go pick up your pokemon from their our
Everything we know about Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield
"Joe Gorski says after watching the Pokemon sword and shield direct today. I am very excited to play this November. However, my switches, the first Nintendo system, I have owned since the GameBoy, so the last Pokemon game I played was blue. Do you think it will be fine to dive right into shield or have I missed too much by not playing Pokemon game for twenty years? I love who specifically says shield. Yeah, just find it. That's all some it go for it. Yeah. On the why, why not that's kind of how they're made to be like you don't need a plate game to get poke him on. You're just more informed me about like how the series is changed. And maybe no more Pok Mon, but they'll, learn about Felix just like assassins, creed. It's okay to skip a couple and because they're the usually replicate all of the new gameplay elements from the previous ones, very rare that they actually shed some of the good stuff. We'd feel like you miss out so miss out on something and there are always a full go. Let's go. There are always good to toils and it's not like you. They teach you thanks years doing fine. And especially, especially the most recent games, I feel like have gotten more like the last two generations, I feel like kind of went a little more towards making it's always been an accessible game but even making it more. So a little bit easily with the experience share going across your entire parties, things like that. So, yeah, I think it's totally safe to jump in a few years ago. I went and play. I did a lot. Let's play knows lock run with Pokemon silver with Alana. And while that game is so much harder than anywhere ones. Especially when you gonna knows lock run. But yeah, these are so much more accessible,
Pokemon Sleep Is A New App To Make Sleeping Entertaining

A Pokémon Go Lawsuit May Lead to Moving and Removing Stops and Gyms
"If you play Pokemon, go course, you know. You don't do you play poker? Mongo? No. You do dad. Does you do? All right. No. He says, no. Okay. We have a difference of opinion here. Do you play Pokemon go? No, I play. Okay. I'm gonna admit it. I'm going to play Pokemon go. I liked the Pokemon. Go. But they're in trouble. The folks at my antics, it's a Google company. These are the guys who to Google maps originally. I thought you know, this location stuff, we'd probably could do more with it. And they created a game. I they create a game called ingress, and they used what they knew from maps. So they actually have a map in the game. And then it started with things like the post office and landmarks they become objects in the game that you have to take over and people different factions fight for it, and then a Pokemon go. They they took the same idea the same maps, in fact, even the same locations and on top of it. They put this kids game started with I think it started with a game. Right. And then this cartoon called Pok Mon. And so as you wander around you see the the US post office. It's a pokey, Jim. And in the gym, our people's Pokemon defending it, you can go in there and attack take it over get rid of their Pokemon put your Pokemon in there, you get points for that and stuff like that. There's also a little Pokemon wandering around you've seen people. It's kind of a crazy thing it started July twenty sixteen and for a few months then back way back when all you'd see people. I remember going down to San Diego are in Coronado. And there's a big grassy median strip as you. Go down the kingsway in Coronado. And it was it was like Woodstock was jammed with people what's going on the played Pokemon. See the word this one median strip had two gyms at either end and a bunch of there's another thing called pokey stops, which are just places you can collect goods. And there was one spot that had like just by accident. I guess randomly to pokey stops and pokey gyms. What's weird is is as a human? You look at it. And it just a median strip or. Post officer, church or sculpture. But in the world of Pok Mon. It's something else. There's it's called augmented reality is another layer of reality augmented on top of it. And so when you look in the game, you see the the map you see the streets. But you also see you don't see the post office. You see a pokey, Jim? You don't see the the bust of Lincoln. You see a pokey stop, and it's good. And so you wander round and the good thing about this game. I think Niantic has said something like several billion miles have been walked by players because you have to walk around. You can't you can't drive go over. I think four miles an hour. So you could run you could bicycle if your bicycle slowly you can't really drive unless you want to drive four miles an hour, which is no fun. So you have to walk and so player. This is great. It's getting families are out there playing the game. They're walking around. But there's a little problem. Of course trouble in paradise, by the way, get ready because this whole pokey. My mania is about to get done over in sometime this year, naive Antic and Warner Brothers are gonna release a new version of this game same idea map, places and stuff. It's going to be Harry Potter. Harry potter. Harry Potter that excite, you know. Okay. It's. Harry Potter you like. Yeah. You like, yeah. Okay. What if instead of pokey stops pokey gyms of Pok, Mon it was fantastic creatures, and it was magical space it places and instead of throwing a ball to catch the creatures? You were using your magic wand and Cassie expect petroleum a spell, and you would catch the creature. What do you think? Yeah. Okay. So that's going to be telling you Pokemon go nothing you're at a see mobs on the median strip again. So so a bunch of a bunch of homeowners filed lawsuit against Nick. Because. Players were congregating on or near private property. Because they were those private property was gyms or pokey stops there were places the players wanted to see now. Starbucks pays money every Starbucks in the country probably in the world, right? Every Starbucks in the world is a pokey. Stop. Good for business players go there, they sit. There have a Cup of coffee every five minutes to get new stuff for the pokey stop. So they stick around. I know I prefer restaurants that have multiple pokey stops nearby. Yeah. It's a sad said addiction. I apologize. But anyway, Nyanza got a little bit of trouble because not everybody wants people hanging around. I remember I was I was playing Pokemon go. Where was I I can't remember? But somebody came up to what are you doing? He said I'm playing poker. I knew it is that I have a he has a shop right at a shop or the parking lot somewhere around the shop is a is a gym at a pokey stop. He's a people keep driving up parking my parking lot the play the game. And then they leave all the time all the time constantly. That's what they're doing. Yeah. I said, yeah, they're catching creatures. Well, they'll shop in my store. They just be Philip space in the parking lot. And therein lies the problem. So it was a class action lawsuit. There apparently many lawsuits filed when this came out. Residents like the villas of Positano and oceanfront condo. In Hollywood, Florida who woke up early in the morning hours to hundreds of players quote behaving like zombies walking around bumping into things. Literally. This is weird redefining the meaning of trespass in the digital age. Because when you're playing these games, you're not looking at the villas, a Positano, you're looking at a gym, a Pok, Mon, Jim. Now, Pokemon go in the game says do not trespass while you're playing this game. So and and and the theory is that they only pick public spots for these gyms and stops like post offices. But sometimes it's a parking lot of a business. Sometimes it's near a business, but not in the business. So many lawsuits they have been now settled. On Thursday a bunch of homeowners. Submitted. A proposal settlement for review by California, federal judge if the deal gets the judges blessing, and it's expected it will. Niantic, creators of this game will become much more legally responsible for the Pokemon that roam around are visible to everybody. But those using the mobile app. Niantic, apparently agreed to settle. Dynamic is pledging upon complaints of nuisance or trespass demands of the removal of a pokey stopper. Jim. This isn't my US forts actually, the state courts, the company will make commercially reasonable efforts to resolve the complaint and communicated resolution with fifteen days, and there was a close to stop owners of single family residential properties get the rights of removal within forty meters of their properties. Niantic will maintain a database of complaints in attempt to avoid poor placement. When antics system detects a rate of more than ten players. Yeah. You can get twenty players in one of these things. Congregating a warning message will appear on their screen. Saying it'd be nice, okay. Just be courteous, respectful. You don't really this is smart because here comes Harry Potter? And you ain't seen nothing yet. I'm just warning you if you see zombie like groups of people in front of your building or your business. Stunner stand. They're not bad people. They're just pokey adult or in this case Potter addled. They'll move on. Plaintiffs wanted awards thousand dollars a piece for all property owners or renters within one hundred meters of pokey stop. Eight million dollars in attorney's fees, of course, under three thousand dollars in expenses. Looks like that'll be settled. So if you've got a strange bunch of people getting in front of your business now, you know, why? And now, you know. Your long national nightmare is almost over until Harry Potter comes out. And then all bets are
