Your journey begins. Outside your home town, you find a news segment hiding in a patch of tall grass. It features Neal, Patrick and Zach, but your Bulbasaur poisons them, making capture easy. Though the boys jostle around in the Pokeball, they quickly acquiesce. "All right! News segment was caught!" you tell yourself.

Later, deep within a haunted tower, you find a Pokemon segment. The ghastly forms of Josh, Pedro, Alex, and James manifest in front of you; and what's this? Your physical attacks do no damage? It is of no consequence, however, as you toss out your Alakazam, which effortlessly puts each of them to sleep for easy collecting. Your party is full, however, so the segment is sent to Box 1.

You've nearly mastered the podcast, but one illusive segment remains, about a long-lost piece of hardware. You carefully make your way through a dark and puzzling cave before seeing it sitting calmly in the middle of a small island. Your Seaking uses surf to ferry you over, and there you finally find Neal, Zach, and special guest Mike Hughes talking about the Super Scope. No reason to risk losing a segment this rare, you tell yourself as you loosen the Master Ball from your belt. With the segment captured successfully and your journey complete, you realize something: you've caught them all.

Talkback

Sorry about my audio taking a dump.

The phrase I was saying in regards to my team was "Slaking Wrecking Crew"

Enjoyed listening to the Pokemon segment guys, as someone who is a strictly competitive player my ears really pricked up at the mention of the phrase "Choice Band Bullet Punch"


I don't mean to advertise or anything, but if anyone wants to learn some more about competitive Pokemon and just how complex it is, here is a link to one of my youtube videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49rla-mW1dw


I post this sort of stuff pretty regularly, check it out if you like :P:

Best. Podcast write-up.  Ever.

Scott outdoes himself nearly every week with the write-ups.

Not sure if I - or anyone else - has mentioned this before, but the musical interludes between segments are consistently great.


Seems weird to pick out something so small, but for the past couple of episodes I've noticed the music each time and stopped to think about how little details like that and the write-ups show how much love that goes into these productions.

Scott and Mike outdo themselves consistently.

Thanks guys.

ejamer, I'm glad you like the music. No one has really said anything one way or the other about it, so I figured people must like it or at least not mind it. I love game music, particularly the old-school variety, so picking out music is a blast. A lot of times I pick music from the series or game discussed, but in some cases, I just pick some of my absolute faves (thus the EarthBound and Yoshi's Island tracks in episode 20).

Thanks again for the kind words. Glad our hard work is getting noticed!

I haven't been able to listen to this episode yet, but I love the direction this show has taken since the reboot...game music interludes included. :)
