Episode 63: The Newbies

• November 8th, 2013

I decided to run down the list of all the new Pokemon and say a few words about their competitive viability. This is only on the brand new Pokemon released, not the Mega Forms that I have already spent a full episode and then some fawning over.

Episode 61: Keep your team healthy

• October 30th, 2013

This episode addresses something I frequently think about but haven't mentioned before: keeping your pokemon around. You never know when you'll need them. Also, this episode is subtitled "I'm sorry I ever doubted you, Skarmory."

Episode 60: Being Meta on the Meta

• October 29th, 2013

This episode will discuss the way I anticipate the metagame shifting once Gen 6 starts to settle. What strategies will become the mainstay and which ones will start to decline?

Also, I was on the road again so there's some road noise for a while. Thankfully (for you at least) I hit some traffic about halfway through so it starts to settle down.

• October 23rd, 2013

Talk about more discoveries within the game, plus a bit on the Fairy type, and a way to get all the shiny pokemon ever*.

*Note: Not all pokemon ever are obtainable this way. It's just so easy that it feels that way.
