New Pokemon Stuff on the Horizon

Nintendo and the Pokemon Company held a “Pokemon Press Conference” to tell fans about many new developments coming to the franchise. The first of these was a follow-up to “Detective Pikachu” coming to the Nintendo Switch sometime in the next year or so. They didn’t really elaborate beyond that, but at least fan know it…

Rumor: Gen 8 Starter Pokemon Leaked

It would be an understatement to say that anticipation for Nintendo’s Switch version of Pokemon is running high. Gamers haven’t gotten a home console-based Pokemon game since Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness released on the Gamecube almost 13 years ago! Even then, it wasn’t the mainline series entry fans had been hoping for. Nintendo has…

The Gloves Are Off in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon

We already knew big changes were coming to Pokemon with the upcoming release of Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon. It was going to feature additional challenges. It was going to have new antagonists in the form of every themed team from just about every past pokemon generation. It was going to introduce new…

Games I’d Like to See on the Switch

Can you believe that the Nintendo Switch is only a month or so away?! It seems like it just yesterday that we were all speculating about what the console will be like and whether or not that weird oval-screen controller was the real deal. Well, thankfully that controller turned out to be a hoax, and…

Saturday Video Round Up: July 31 – August 6

My goodness it has been quite a while hasn’t it? With the barren like wasteland of July now a thing of the past, the Saturday Video Round Up makes its long awaited return. Thankfully, there’s a lot more video content to take a look at these days, so lets jump right into it, shall we?…

A Trial Run of Pokémon Go

I never intended to play Pokémon Go. Up until this past weekend, I was more than content to follow its comings and goings online, in social media, and on the nightly news. I was impressed by mainstream cult that quickly formed around the game, and I was amazed at its immediate rise in popularity, and…

Still Wanna Catch ‘Em All!

It was just about 20 years ago now that gamers were introduced to the world of Pokemon. It’s arrival at the time was probably just as exciting as any other new release, but little did we know that Pokemon would become so much more than a one-off adventure about a 10-year-old collecting strange monsters. Somehow,…

#Listmas2014: Pokemon LeafGreen has taught me a thing or three

The second half of this year has been, for me, all about Pokemon LeafGreen. After plenty of internal debate and more than a little help from my Internet friends, several months back, I decided to play LeafGreen, my first ever Pokemon game. I wish I could say that I’ve completed the game, but I haven’t…yet. (I’m…

Pokemon is a Game of Great Moments

Image by Flickr User: BagoGames (cc) Normally a series as unchanging as Pokemon would have long ago faded into oblivion. We gamers usually demand a degree of change as we follow a series, so it should be a wonder that Pokemon has persisted so long without many major changes to the formula. It should be,…

I am not a novelty

I see you. Staring. Staring at me. You think I don’t notice? You’re right across from me on this train; you’re not invisible. All I want to do is play Pokemon on my way to work in peace. Is it the tablet? The fact that I’m using the tablet like a game controller instead of…
