Ahoy, mateys, and welcome to the Game Buoy podcast – your twice monthly port of call for gaming news and views that maybe aren’t on your radar, but most definitely should be! On this episode, recorded Sunday, July 17, 2016, Captain Spike and First Mate Slagkick are joined by Sulker to launch a new Pokemon podcast, Same Type Attack Bonus, with a discussion on the impact of Pokemon Go’s launch!
This week, Spike, Slagkick, and Sulker discuss the phenomenon that is Pokémon Go! The trainers look at the early days of Niantic Labs, the development of Ingress, and the April Fools joke in collaboration with Satoru Iwata and Tsunekazu Ishihara – all culminating in the recent release of the highly anticipated Pokémon Go! The title has become a gaming and pop culture sensation, and the trainers discuss their experiences with the game so far, as well as how they would like to see it grow, and how it may draw new audiences for Pokémon Sun and Moon.
