    I hate broccoli! Yuck, But he is cute. I think we have released so many Pokemon that we can now compare them to each other all the time. I don't know how 3 on 3 will work out now. It sounds more strategical, but I will see if I still prefer 2 on 2. From my last posts you can correctly assume that I love Pokemon Colosseum, Fav spin off ever. Worst? Possibly Pokemon Ranch. Why would they drop Brock! He is so awesome and has been there since the first series! My cutoff for the anime was at two. Have them both on VHS still. I always was forward about liking Pokemon, and them people didn't make fun of me. Cuz I was Hardcore! Your game cartridge probably hates you. Or the game was programed wrong. I got 2 shines in normal wild encounters. Skarmory(Dark Green) and Shelleos(It's a shiny version of the pink one, darker pink). When I met my shines I always use the best balls I have, usually I have hundreds of dusk or ulraballs! Go Swampert!!! My Fav final starter evolution! So powerful!

    oops, mabey its just iron tail
  • sammypip - August 29, 2010 8:10 p.m.

    not sure where to say this, hopefully pokemon Monday team will read this before they record, although the might have already, but has anyone noticed that in the new best wishes trailer that Picachu's tail is now completely black? when its normally yellow with brown on it?
  • kamakenny - August 29, 2010 3:46 p.m.

    Pokemon snap because its the only spinoff i have ever played. lol. But my birthday is on your next podcast. Can i have a shout out please? It would really make my day and i can trade you a pokem maybe if you want?

    in the next episode you should mension that the airport in the isshu region mapis probably the elitefour because they always put a mountain and that it probably replace the boats in the game so you probably can fly to where the legendaries are

    A great collection of hosts this week. To me Pokemon Mondays should ideally include Henry, Grimm, T-Nag or Brelston. Those 4 have great chemistry and play off Carolyn and each other really well. And Pokemon Snap, easily. That game may actually be more fun than some of the main entries in the series.
  • MrDuracraft - August 24, 2010 11:19 p.m.

    I never really played any spin-off games, so I don't have a favorite. And you said Hippie Ranger... NightmareRH
  • Eevee10001 - August 24, 2010 8:57 p.m.

    Mystery Dungeon is my favorite, I'd have to say my least favorite is Pokemon Dash. -dang me and my crappy games I buy-
  • shyfonzie - August 24, 2010 8:42 p.m.

    To not say something obvious, Pokemon puzzle league. But they really need to make a pokemon pinball DS. The DS was made for pinball!
  • oufour - August 24, 2010 4:29 p.m.

    XD was my first pokemon game, so that.
  • philipshaw - August 24, 2010 10:03 a.m.

    Pokemon Stadium on N64, the minigames were so good
  • EAC73 - August 24, 2010 10:02 a.m.

    @efreed52 i did like the pokemon trading card game but my favorite has to pokemon stadium for the N64
  • 8bitBaby - August 24, 2010 7:23 a.m.

    hully crap, i forgot what day it was! thought it was tuesday. huzzah! mondays are made better by pokemon mondays! :D
  • JamesGordin - August 24, 2010 2:53 a.m.

    I love pokemon snap but the one i played the most was stadium 64, up until i needed the memery thing for the back of the controller ^-^
  • Defguru7777 - August 24, 2010 2:25 a.m.

    Pokemon Coliseum is my favorite. I haven't played any of the others.
  • enlargedhousecats - August 24, 2010 1:41 a.m.

    if pokemon colloseum or xd gale of darkness count then those
  • MJSHappy - August 24, 2010 1:19 a.m.

    Pokemon mystery dungeon and Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness. XD was so awesome.
  • Lurkero - August 24, 2010 12:48 a.m.

    These new Pokemon are shaping up to be really ugly. Also, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon was a pretty good spinoff take on the dungeon crawler type games. It really fit the Pokemon universe if you ask me.

    P.S. You GR guys should make the podcast a little longer in order to read out a few of the answers to PM's Question of the Week like you did in PM #2, which was "Pokemon that deserved a new evolution".
