Pokemon Monday 34 – A fishy Valentine's Day



Subscribe via iTunes

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.

Episode 34 highlights


Hacked Spritomb distributed at Pokemon mall tour - Can we all agree to stop trolling seven-year-olds?

Rumor: no third installment for Pokemon Black and White? - Take this one with a huge grain of salt, since it's been through a game of translation telephone. (Note and correction: The person who was interviewed in this story is Mana Ibe, an illustrator for the Pokemon Trading Card game and a Pokemon designer for Pokemon Black and White - I referred to the interviewee as a "he" but she's actually a woman.)

CoroCoro article about upcoming Victini movie and event - For the first time ever, there will be two different versions of a Pokemon movie. Plus, the article contains news of an upcoming Japanese Wi-Fi download event that pertains to those of us who imported B&W.

Pokemon Black and White feature enhancements when played on a 3DS - Not too exciting, but perhaps somewhat interesting, this news lends weight to the argument that the third installment of B&W might still be for the 3DS.

 

B&W spotlight: Gothitelle and Reuniclus - We discuss the two pure Psychic version exclusives.

Pokemon Monday invades TalkRadar 138 - All three regular Pokemon Monday hosts appear on the latest episode of TalkRadar, Pokemon Monday's salty older brother.

 

Pokemon of the week: Luvdisc - In honor of Valentine's Day.

Question of the week: If you could ask the creators of Pokemon any question, what would you ask?

See you next week!

    I can make a Spritomb have Wonder guard Naturally. It's Called Skill Swap in a 2 on 2 battle! Celebi will probably be over wifi. I wonder if I can get two! I got the dogs over wifi. I got 6 sets. Yay for multiple Game packs! This being the final is like Fire Red and Leaf Green. Only two. lol Bidoof in 3D! Ironically the 3ds cars are the same, just larger capacity and different shape. Always focus on abilities, they are the key to battle after 3rd gen. You guys got into people as pokemon too well! Oh and I will hop on this now. I would take your jobs in a heart beat, and will listen to any recommendations you give! If I were to ask the creators one question, it would be, "How much effort did you actually put into the first games?" Magma Armor to hatch eggs is the best passive ability next to pick up! Hope to hear good things next week. Last episode before english versions!

    I would ask if black and white were there last instalment of pokemon which I really hope it isnt

    QOTW: Does pressing A and B (or any suspected combination of buttons) increase the chance of catching a pokemon?
  • Noah4life - February 21, 2011 3:26 a.m.

    i would ask: What made you go with Pikachu being the mascot, or did it become that on its own? Next question: What was the first pokemon you designed for each generation?
  • aamclcp - February 20, 2011 8:38 p.m.

    QOTW: I would ask the creators how much longer the franchise is going to continue. It's been 15 years and still going strong, but I wonder if they'll ever think the day would come that they stop making new games. Or, will they pass the legacy on to someone else? I know the end of Pokemon is something NONE of us want to think about, but the thought has been lingering in the back of mind, and I would like to know what the creators would say about the subject.

    Submission for QOTW (Inspired by the Pokemon Forums) : What are some of the post Pokemon related puns you've ever heard? Ex. In response to my mini-rant of the puns-"There's no need to RAGE, stop being so GLOOM. You really need to CALM MIND."
  • maurypwnage - February 16, 2011 6:25 p.m.

    Zune?
  • Daver123 - February 16, 2011 4:49 p.m.

    QOTW: If you were turned into a Pokemon, which would it be and why?
  • huntco3 - February 16, 2011 4:41 a.m.

    I would ask how many more gens. Will pokemon last?
  • TRcommander - February 15, 2011 11:30 p.m.

    I would ask whether mew or arceus came first in the pokemon universe because mew is said to be the ancestor of all pokemon while arceus is said to have created the universe.
  • codystovall - February 15, 2011 7:39 p.m.

    Can i design a pokemon, why cant you be champion once champion?
  • SteampunkJim - February 15, 2011 5:14 p.m.

    I would ask them how far they plan on taking the franchise. The overlap is getting sort of crazy, and I'm curious how long they think they can drag this out. We all love our pokemon, but this couldn't possibly be indefinite. Personally, I think they need a start over. Like Black and White, but without bringing all the old pokemon in. Just have the 150+, and just leave it at that. You know, sort of start the cycle over.
  • rpadTVbsuKenyan5000 - February 15, 2011 4:01 p.m.

    Also, I think the translation from Mana Ibe means that the 3rd installment will be DS compatible and that the third game was completed at the same time as Black and White—so it will NOT be on the 3DS only. Just my interpretation.
  • rpadTVbsuKenyan5000 - February 15, 2011 3:57 p.m.

    @Carolyn I had never listened to TalkRadar until last week's 'bizarro' episodes. And I will be checking out the Pokemon Mall Tour this week in Indy. I'll be on the lookout for any hacked pokemon there. And if you want an Ash's Pikachu I have 4 (on my 4 different cartridges).
  • philipshaw - February 15, 2011 3:49 p.m.

    I would ask why they release 2 versions of the same game? My guess is because it makes more money
  • dontshootthereviewer - February 15, 2011 3:10 p.m.

    I would ask them if they ever considered having more than four moves available for pokemon to use at one time and if they will ever change that.
  • Crimmy - February 15, 2011 6:21 a.m.

    What captaincarl said. Also, POKEYMANS MONDAY FREAKOUT.
  • Romination - February 15, 2011 5:38 a.m.

    I would ask them why they don't actually INNOVATE. The Pokemon games have been more or less the same and all other games have left them behind. Is it really too much to ask that they do, I don't know, a 3D RPG like, say, Monster Hunter but with Pokemon?
  • deformedorange - February 15, 2011 4:10 a.m.

    Shouldn't Crystal and Platinum have been switched? Gold and Silver are closely related at metals to platinum and Diamonds and Pearls are more similar to Crystals.
