Gamers On The Go #21 | Pokemon Gold, Silver & Crystal

Fellow former Bitmob writer and Pokemon master, Matt Polen, joins Chase as we return to our look at the Pokemon franchise, digging this time into the second generation.

The thing is…the new Pokemon X and Y are still pretty fresh in our minds, so the conversation inevitably deviates into that territory time and again. 

Show Notes:

  • Chase mentions a certain video regarding the reveal of Mega Kangaskhan. Maybe you should just take a look…
  • You owe it to yourself to read Matt’s awesome Hunter S. Thompson-esque take on Pokemon’s fiction. Part 1 Part 2 Part 3
  • Chase incorrectly credits Matt with writing those Pokemon metagame articles on Bitmob. They were actually by Marcel Hoang. Gen 1 Gen 2 Gen 3 Gen 4 Gen 5
  • Note that our impressions of X and Y are still pretty early despite each of us having crossed the 70-hour mark. Some of our statements are wrong and some of our issues actually have solutions (like Chase’s issue with foreign Pokemon names. As long as they weren’t given nicknames, the names will revert to English when the Pokemon evolves.)
