Welcome to Pokemon Monday, GamesRadar's podcast 100% devoted to all things Pokemon. Step into the bizarre hivemind of several adult Pokemon fantatics each Monday as we bring you a no-frills, raw and unedited passionate Pokemon discussion covering breaking news, events, and whatever else is on our singularly devoted Pokemon brains. No Pokemon-related topic is off limits.
Reopening the "ground zero" controversy - Listener SuperSEGABros wrote in to ask us to take another look at the debate over whether or not the contruction area in Route 4 of B&W is based in any way on 9/11's ground zero. He sites this blog post as evidence, and we have to agree it's a compelling argument, although it's highly unlikely (read: not possible) that Game Freak or Nintendo meant any offense by it. Make sure you look at the high-res version for maximum convincing!
Rumor: New Pokemon game for Wii? - We don't need to hear a rumor to agree that it makes logical sense that Nintendo will release another Pokemon Battle game for Wii that will be compatible with Black and White.
Pokemon Black and White spotlight: The Ice-types - This generation has more pure Ice-types than every previous generation combined! Quantity doesn't necessarily mean quality though...
Pokemon Post fanzine - Shout out to GamesRadar forum user Pry0citer, who created an online fanzine dedicated to Pokemon.
Pokemon of the week: Weavile - the Sharp Claw Pokemon. Continuing our salute to Ice-types, we take a look at this truly unique Dark/Ice Pokemon. With its super speed and high attack stat combo, Weavile is definitely worth checking out if you have yet to discover this gen 4 gem.
Question of the week: What do you think about the geography of the Unova region? Do you think the "ground zero" theory is valid?
See you next week!
