Welcome to Episode #53 of Next Gen News, CraveOnline’s weekly gaming podcast. This week’s hosts are Joey Davidson and yours truly, Mike White. Erik Norris is out of town for a week long celebration of guy-love. It’s not gay, it’s just guy-love.
This week’s show is dedicated to celebrating the greatest gaming franchise of all time: Pokémon. As we lead up to the release of Pokémon: Black/White, Joey and I reflect on what we love about Pokemon games and what got us started on our catch-‘em-all journey. If you happen to be a Pokémon fan you can get nostalgic right along with us. If not, then sit back and enjoy our embarrassing confessions about high school band and awkward college roommates.
As always, follow us on Twitter and feel free to share your favorite Pokémon memories. Props to the person who shares the best story about an unconventional place where they played Pokémon.
