No Pokemon-related topic is off limits.

Episode 24 highlights

Halloween recap - We discuss our favorite Ghost-type Pokemon of Isshu and of all time, plus get creeped out over the Lavender Town theme all over again

Our usual Black & White update - Yes, we're still playing it and it is awesome

Pokemon of the week: Rotom - The Plasma Pokemon. We salute Rotom not only for being a unique Electric/Ghost-type Pokemon, but because he continues to reinvent himself. In B&W, his Ghost type changes when he transforms into his various electronic appliance forms.

GIVEAWAY: We're giving away five sets of two Pikachu Wii remote static cling decals in honor of today's release of PokePark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure. All you have to do to enter is answer this week's question of the week in the comments section below. Our panel of impartial judges will pick the five best responses next week and we'll announce the winners on next week's episode. You have until Sunday 11/7 at 11:59pm PST to post your comment.

Question of the week: Besides Pikachu, who is the cutest Pokemon and why?

See you next week!

    I am surprised the types for rotom didn't change. I didnt get platinum, so I didn't check the forms. I still like him in the standard from. The super meat boy references were awesome. I love that game for pure nostalgia!

    It has to be Squirtle, for Squirtle is the cutest of all the Turtle Poke'mon, and Turtles are the cutest things ever!

    hmmmmmm i think.........hands down....... SHAMIN!!! I MEAN ITS A CHIA PET!!!! nothin is as CUTE as that thing. I personally never used 1 but its cuteness factor is TREMENDOUS!!
  • billyjack77 - November 8, 2010 7:17 p.m.

    Cutest is definatly Jigglypuff
  • jitteryjigglypuff - November 8, 2010 12:31 a.m.

    Jirachi is super cute, especially in the anime! I also really like Jigglypuff and Chansey.
  • chocoholic - November 7, 2010 10:13 p.m.

    I say Pichu, if you dont why then obviously you are blind. Pikachu is amazingly cute and Pichu being the baby version of it is SO MUCH MORE CUTE. Pichu ftw (:
  • cooloman - November 6, 2010 6:15 p.m.

    Cyndaquil or mijumaru both cute but both strong
  • Fado352 - November 5, 2010 1:30 a.m.

    Raichu is the cutest pokemon because he has some of the great features of Picachu but cuter because of his rounder white belly and covered brown paws.
  • SnorlaxPWNS - November 3, 2010 12:45 p.m.

    im going to go with the randomest pokemon so..... sandshrew because he is essentally a mole that you can cuddle with
  • Punkmasher - November 3, 2010 12:07 p.m.

    Without a doubt the adorable moniker must needs be bestowed upon Jigglypuff. Unforgetable the scenes of Jigglypuff's singing, the passion it puts into each performance. He complete and utter surprise on it's cute and pudgey face upon discovering everyone had fallen asleep whilst it sang. And then!! The insulted puffed up balloon makes it's indignant cry "Puff!!!" and the microphone suddenly becomes a marker and the sleeping audience is graffitied with adorable intent. How much more adorable can we stand?
  • Tyranizard - November 3, 2010 11:46 a.m.

    Snubbull, hands down. Cuz, it look's so determined to be tough.
  • gamebrain8505 - November 3, 2010 9:22 a.m.

    The one pokémon cuter than pikachu... has got to be PICHU (not bidoof, he's creepy)
  • Kiemoe - November 3, 2010 5:09 a.m.

    I think my cutest pokemon ever would have to be Dragonite. I always kind of imagine him as many would imagine a cuddly unicorn that's all interesting and magical. I really see him as one of the most originally designed Pokemon in the series
  • Zack117 - November 3, 2010 4:35 a.m.

    The baby inside Kangaskhan's pouch. I don't know if that counts but that's the cutest pokemon there is.
  • GameManiac - November 3, 2010 4:13 a.m.

    Riolu, because it's the pup pre-evolution of my all-time favorite Pokemon. And you can't go wrong with puppies. Most people can not because they are just so nauciously irresistable.
  • shmoopy97 - November 3, 2010 1:38 a.m.

    Well the cutest pokemon in my opinion is the evolutionary line of togepi togetic and togekiss. Togepi is just so cute in its little egg shell and it always looks so happy and it little stubs for arms and leg make it that much more adorible. and even its pokedex entrys are adorible like its entry from gold which says "The shell seems to be filled with joy. It is said that it will share good luck when treated kindly." And togetic is just like a little ball of sunshine! And last but certenly not least togekiss and just a big puggy ball of asomeness! it is so chunky and cute!! when i see it it makes me happy! thats my answer. CUTENESS! .3.
  • Whatnow301 - November 2, 2010 11:09 p.m.

    Mime jr for makin team rockets blast offs that much better in the anime
  • link07 - November 2, 2010 10:36 p.m.

    it cyndaquil is cute than pikachu because it small cose eye and boby that you want to hug it.
  • shyfonzie - November 2, 2010 9:39 p.m.

    Eevee. Eevee is like the best puppy you've ever seen, multiplied to the power of kawaii, wrapped in a crepe and smothered with love.
  • noofer7 - November 2, 2010 8:49 p.m.

    Hmm... Well personally I think Raichu is cuter than Pikachu anyway, plus it's stronger! But my cutest would probably have to be Spheal, because IT'S A BABY SEAL. What's not to love? Plus you can club them to death! Well, okay, fainting...
