NXpress Nintendo Podcast #45: Celebrating 20 years of Pokemon


February 27th marks the 20th anniversary of the Pokémon franchise, with Pokémon Red and Blue releasing in Japan, starting a massive franchise that has gone on to become one of video games’ biggest. To celebrate, we here at the NXpress are dedicating an entire episode to catching them all, or at least talking about it. To help with all pokémadness, our resident pokéxpert Tim is joined by Goomba Stomp contributors and fellow pokénuts Jason Krell and mod Sarah Luger to talk about favorite generations, best Pokémon (how that guy made of garbage didn’t get picked is beyond me), competitive play, and everything Pokémon in between. Whether you’re a hardcore fan or someone looking to learn more about the franchise, it’s a must-listen episode. Enjoy!
