The Free Cheese

20 years ago, 151 monsters debuted on the Game Boy. While we didn't get Pokémon in North America for another two years, we still caught the addiction to catch them all.

Joe, Kyle, and Marc spend a few hours talking about Pokémon. We start with the first two titles, Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue, sharing our memories of playing the games for the first time and revisiting them on Virtual Console nearly 20 years later. We share our must-have monsters for getting through Kanto, and which ones we think are the dumbest-looking designs.

After an image search goes wrong and we take a brief break, we talk about the upcoming Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. We discuss our favorite of the new Pokémon and make our wishes for new monsters. 

Then, a civil war breaks out over the best Pokémon generation and we bring the episode to a close by naming our favorite Pokémon.

It's been five months since we've recorded an episode and we all missed it. Joe, Kyle, and Marc sit down to discuss E3 2016 and all of the secrets revealed. 

We talk about what Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo brought to the annual show and what we liked best from each. 

Xbox has two new consoles on the way, PlayStation is bringing back a lost friend, and Nintendo celebrates 30 years of a dude in a green tunic. 

We're all pretty stoked about Injustice 2 finally becoming a reality and we're even more excited to be back to talk about it. Thanks to all of those who have waited for us to return and who are looking forward with us to see where this thing goes.
