Episode 266: Warm Fuzzies!

So the Silver Conference has its opening ceremonies and I get to gush about Gary turning into a respectable human being.  There are conversations by the lake, battles in the prelims and of course, Fantasy Pokemon League!  And some discussion on Pokemon Sun and Moon, since I'm having such fun playing that!  Click here to hear how it all went!

Here's Pokepress talking with fans about the Pokemon TCG Pre-release!  Check out this, and their many other vids and interviews.  (I'm in some of them; you totally should!)

Episode 265: Runner Up!

The Silver Conference is almost upon us, the torch runner is about to start!  While we wait for that to get underway, I have a long tangent about Pokemon Black and White/ Episode N and what it can teach us about politics.  Ho hum... Click here to listen!

Congratulations to Team Logan and Team Evan!  I look forward to your Fantasy Pokemon League competition!

Episode 264: Crying For Our Mommies!

 Crazy future episode ideas, the end of a friend's character arc, and oh!  A game, you say?  You can hear the whole episode here, or keep reading for game details..

All right, Team! We're gonna play Fantasy Pokemon League! I'll break down the rules more later, but here's the basic idea:
Everyone who wants to play will draft 4 characters (at least 1 human and 1 pokemon) and 1 event and 1 attack, for a total of 6. When the Silver Conference episodes air, you will all earn points based on what happens. Such as:
Battle Points: You get a point when one of your characters appears in a Pokemon battle. Bonus point if they win the match.
Hero Points; You get a point if one of your characters save someone.
Romance Points: You get a point if one of your characters falls in love, or someone falls in love with them.
Event Points: In addition to characters, you draft an event, such as the team rocket motto, wobbofett popping out of its pokeball, handshakes/highfives, etc. If one of these events happen, you get a point.
Attack Points: Anytime your drafted attack is used (ex. Thundershock) by any pokemon, you get a point.
Random Points: There will also be a few random or bonus events that you can earn points from.
I'll explain the rules more, and write up a full breakdown of everything available for drafts later this weekend, and of course, I'll explain it on the show. Obviously, certain main characters stand to rack up a lot of points, so there might be handicaps associated with them.
This is mostly for fun and giggles, but there is a PRIZE! I knit small dolls, and to the winner, I will knit a little Ash Ketchum doll and mail it anywhere in the world. So, a little incentive.
Do you want to play? Please let me know in the comments! We need at least three people playing for this to work. I don't think I'll need to impose a max limit on players, but please put your name in the comments so I have a basic idea!
