Podcast: The History of Pokemon (Plus Sword and Shield)

leave a comment »

This week Fred was out of commission but the community (and a new podcast) teamed up to make some great content.  It starts off with the History of Pokemon as told by Chase from the Learned from Gaming podcast and it then flows to a much larger discussion on the legacy of Pokemon as it relates to the just releasing Pokemon Sword and Shield.  This discussion includes Chase as well but also involves community members Vos and Los.  In fact, this episode is a crossover with Los’ recently released The Talking Place podcast.

This week is one of transition, but that doesn’t stop new content. At the start are several announcements to the future of the show followed by a cut news segment recorded by Fred and Austin for the Halloween Special. If you haven’t been keeping up with retro news, there’s a lot of good stuff here.
