DISCUSSION

In honor of the 20th anniversary of Pokemon and the recent Virtual Console releases of Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow, Captain Spike and First Mate Slagkick revisit the region of Kanto as Pokemon fans around the world have the shared experience of going “back to basics!” The Podcast Pirates focus on the noticable changes of revisiting the first generation of Pokemon games, something many people haven’t truly done in years, with even FireRed and LeafGreen having implemented gameplay and quality of life changes. Are the original games really “Nintendo hard” compared to modern Pokemon games, or is the level of challenge appropriate? Captain Spike and First Mate Slagkick share their thoughts on the matter along with their favorite “monster memories” and whether they find themselves retreading old ground or forging a new path on their current journeys.

SOCIAL LINKS

This week revisit Kanto with us as we dive into the Virtual Console releases of Pokemon R(G)BY! Has time changed the experience for you?

FB Bonus: Moving forward, would you prefer Fire Red/Leaf Green style remakes, or just pure Virtual Console ports?

SPOTLIGHT PRINCESS

To expand on our coverage of The Legend of Zelda’s 20th anniversary, Captain Spike takes a closer look at Link’s Awakening and what makes this quirky game a gem unlike any other in the series.

WHAT’S UP

Captain Spike has been playing The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD and Fire Emblem Fates, as well as Pokemon Yellow – which has been consuming all of First Mate Slagkick’s gaming time.
