    I can't wait to see that crocodile's evolution should be pretty awesome.

    I love hihidaruma....He looks like an awesome fire type pokemon which will surely replace the common fire type pokemon that was Ponyta....Also love the Zehkrom guy...I was gonna pick Reshiram but now that he is electric he blows the other guy out of the water......Great choice Game freak

    What no pokemon of the week? Oh well I guess you have E3 to worry about. Out of the first 4 Pokemon in the scans I like Munna the best. It's quite yet deadly. I wonder what its evolution would be. The last 3 area all pretty cool. I would love to see a cool evolution for Meguroko, I like the idea of a Dark/Ground type. I like how you say that the Pokemon who evolve gets slowly coller/meaner style. I'm glad to finally have a Female professor! I'm surprised they didn't do that in Ruby/Sapphire! The pokedex looks a ton like a original game boy with two screens. I agree we need to have a way to sort pokemon, I have so many to keep track of with a full pokedex! We also only need move pokemon, once they had that, it's all I used! I'll be finally glad to have onlive vs. I liked having it in Battle Revolution, but no one plays it anymore. I loved showing the newbies my sineies. I liked the real time GTS website, expanding that would be perfect. PS the GTS site is still active!I do need a new way to move all my pokemon in bulk. I mean I have every one, there needs to be a better want to move them all to the newer versions. The pal-park takes too dam long! I wish for the next official new Pokemon platform they take all the regions and put them in one game! Thanks for the good info this week. Ill try and finish training my new Dragon team now for next years Pokemon league here in Calgary at Otafest!

    It's between the fire monkey and the crocodile for me. The pigeon one just looks like Starly with different colors. Also, FACT PROVEN! I'm getting Black because I want Reshiram
  • dabomb52295 - June 15, 2010 12:09 a.m.

    i don't think they will there will be a game with the 3ds. aslo only for the 3ds in america will black and white be in 3d. Graphics look to good/ 3dish
  • philipshaw - June 14, 2010 11:54 p.m.

    I didn't think there would be a Pokemon monday podcast because of E3, thanks for putting this one up
  • gopikmin - June 14, 2010 11:09 p.m.

    munna is probably the prevolution of drowzee. Note that they both have same abilities and they are both dream eaters. Also they both have snouts.Also i like that zebra
  • shyfonzie - June 14, 2010 10:31 p.m.

    <3 Pokemonday
  • Infidel - June 14, 2010 9:48 p.m.

  • GamesRadarCarolynGudmundson - June 14, 2010 9:20 p.m.

    @Infidel it'll be on iTunes soon, apologies for the delay
  • Infidel - June 14, 2010 9:05 p.m.

    Looking forward to hearing this, but I'm I the only one who can't find it on iTunes? The first 3 are there, but not this one.
  • 8bitBaby - June 14, 2010 8:53 p.m.

    woo hoo! will you guys do a special pokecast after you hear more from nintendo at e3?
  • samgardner94 - June 14, 2010 8:53 p.m.

    Can the next question of the week have something to do with the world cup now that it has arrived it would be cool to mix pokemon and world cup
  • 510BrotherPanda - June 14, 2010 7:45 p.m.

    I think the Telekinesis ability might negate the USE of Ground-type moves, like Dig, Magnitude, Earthquake, or Fissure, or maybe any attack that requires being on the ground. And I think the pink Psychic one might be the same type of tapir-looking monster like Drowzee.
  • oufour - June 14, 2010 7:22 p.m.

    i think they're all horrible. remember when pokemon looked cool? seriously, the only one that's slightly appealing is the red monkey thing. zekrom is pretty kickass, but so far, this might be the worse generation yet.
  • 510BrotherPanda - June 14, 2010 7:20 p.m.

    I'd say that Pidgey-similar bird, because the first bird you find/catch usually stays on the team for a while, and are usually three stages, like Pidgeot or Staraptor. I know Fearow is decent strong and Swellow is fast, but I really don't like two-stagers as much. I use Pidgeot and Staraptor to Fly, unless I get myself a Flying Kangaskhan. I think Bird Pokemon that look like actual birds-of-prey are more believable than a three-headed ratite like Dodrio. I'm still on the fence about these new releases looking like just rehashes of older monster designs, though.
