    Also I still have an original holographic Charizard card. Never lost a match thanks to it. You made my day with the pokemon of the week!

    I think that it would be awesome if one of the game nights is having pokemon battles. Future game night?

    Using blast burn with my charizard on the elite 4 in leaf green. It made a BBOOMMSHH noise and dragonite went down.

    Nice to see a Pokémon-cast again (yeah, I've only just caught up with the other episodes). Pretty funny stuff. My strongest memory involving Charizard is, funnily enough, trading it away. There was this one day back in school when we could bring games in, and pretty much everyone brought a Game Boy with Pokémon. For whatever reason this one kid somehow had a Mew, and everyone was looking to trade something for it. I managed to beat him in a battle with my (beloved) Charizard, although didn't think a lot of it. But this obviously proved its worth, and the kid said that he would trade the Mew for my Charizard, and absolutely nothing less...hardest decision of my life! But I went through with it, because OMG MEW. And then, afterwards...I felt a bit empty inside. But unlike Ash and that one Gentleman in the animé, there was no going back on this one. *shed tear* And obviously, it's only now that I'm older that I can understand how blatantly foolish I was, what with the likelihood of the Mew being hacked. I miss you Charizard!

    Wow, that art is the most adorable thing I've seen all week! it's so damn cool! Charmander's, along with Vulpix are easily my favorites! ^^ Nice, fun, compact podcast as always!, I do believe you guys came out stronger in this episode despite the lack of actual real news, it had a nice and was fun to listen to, specially the personal anecdotes at the end!

    Why does he have a hood made of skin? Sick.

    In the games, I always pick Bulbasaur. But on the TV show... Charizard... OH CHARIZARD! I love it since he was a Charmander and I still love him. When he stays with the other Charizards I just cried SO hard. I got all the first season on my PC and I watch it every once in a while, just to remember the good old times... God, I feel so old Anyway, I'm gonna get a tatto someday... It will be a Charmeleon or a Charizard, I can't decide yet
  • ljrivarola - March 12, 2013 9:43 p.m.

    Well, I actually found a Charmeleon tribal that I really loved, just search "charmeleon tribal" on google images and you'll find it, it's the most repeated one. Still I need to get the money first, but I will send a picture when I get it :) Fun fact: I'm so obssesed with Charmander and his evolutions that when I was a little kid (4 maybe 5 years old) and my birthday was close, I was telling everybody "hey, I'm just about to evolve from a Charmander to a Charmeleon!"... And I did it so proudly... I had a weird childhood

    My most vivid Charizard memory is trading far too many rare holographic cards to get a Charizard card, which thankfully I still have. I think. My mom was supposed to never throw that binder away, but I moved out two years ago. Holy bleep words I hope Char is okay...

    James Turner is living every Western Pokefan's dream by working at Game Freak, it's almost unfair! Charizard memories are not that great for me. I have a Base Set Holographic Charizard card, but a long time ago, my little sister stepped on my card book where it was stored and bent the right side of the card. I was so upset! As a Grass Type fan, I can say Charizard and I are not the best of friends... That person's art is so cool, I checked the site and loved everything there.

    My favorite Charizard moment was when my blue Charmeleon evovled into a Blue Charizard and it was a happy day. I beat the Elite Four no problem and when my dad came home, he brought me a Charizard plushie. I still have it and I sleep with it every night :)

    "I cant say im playing Luigi's Mansion, which is pretty cool" YAY Harmoknights gonna be great, I have a soft spot for Rhythm games and this will be no exception. 5 Generations and they STILL kept the cries! That episode was awesome and so nostalgic but they put Pidgeot instead of Pidgeotto in the ice cave. Heh, 17 years, 17 Types HAAH
  • samiamJack - March 12, 2013 6:21 p.m.

    Yes, something to hold me off till friday! Probably my favorite memory of Charizard was finally having my charmeleon evolve in yellow so that I could have Blastoise, Pikachu, and Charizard on the same team because at the time there were no cooler trifecta than that

    Hooray! I've been missing mah PokeRadar. Oh and if any of the editors are reading... What you did to my profile. Yep. Nice. (They flipped my profile pic and wrote a little bit "about me" on my profile page)
