20 years ago, 151 monsters debuted on the Game Boy. While we didn’t get Pokémon in North America for another two years, we still caught the addiction to catch them all.

Joe, Kyle, and Marc spend a few hours talking about Pokémon. We start with the first two titles, Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue, sharing our memories of playing the games for the first time and revisiting them on Virtual Console nearly 20 years later. We share our must-have monsters for getting through Kanto, and which ones we think are the dumbest-looking designs.

After an image search goes wrong and we take a brief break, we talk about the upcoming Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. We discuss our favorite of the new Pokémon and make our wishes for new monsters.

Then, a civil war breaks out over the best Pokémon generation and we bring the episode to a close by naming our favorite Pokémon.
