The Entertainment Dome Episode 118 – An Eton Messy Episode

I’d like to say that technical issues are responsible for why this episode is late but, honestly, James and I just forgot to upload it. Sorry!

So, in case you missed the live recording, in this episode we discussed the last episode of Attack on Titan (for now), our theories for the next season, and the most recent info for Pokémon Sword & Shield.

Ten Things You Might’ve Not Known About Pokémon Red & Blue

pokemon_red_blue_main_169

How about we try something new this week? You may not know this but I love me some trivia. Whether it be early concepts, connections between actors or just neat, little easter eggs, I get a weird thrill from learning and memorising this kind of stuff from all kinds of media (which did not help me during my school years when I should’ve been memorising maths). But one thing I love more than discovering trivia is sharing it with others, so I figured why not try my hand at actually writing up some fun articles all about that?

So let’s start things off with ten things you may not have known from a classic set of games that defined a lot of peoples’ childhoods – the first generation of Pokémon games, Red & Blue – courtesy of Bulbapedia and Serebii (just so you know I’m not making all this up). Continue reading

But I want to focus on the second battle with her, mostly because of how unique it is for the series. Continue reading

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu – An Amazing Adaptation or Shockingly Bad?

When children hear the words “live-action Pokémon movie,” they get excited. When adults hear those words, however, they inwardly cringe. Live-action adaptations of videogames and animated properties both share notorious reputations for being pretty much always bad, so you can’t blame most of us, upon hearing that Hollywood were going to give Nintendo’s most prolific RPG series the same treatment, to place our faces in our hands and groan.

But then that very first trailer dropped and, suddenly, people started to say “Actually, this looks pretty good.” Early impressions indicated that Pokémon: Detective Pikachu would avoid every pitfall that other movies of its ilk had fallen into. Fans’ expectations went from nil to a hundred, but were we right to trust those trailers? Is it even a good adaptation of the game it’s based on? Is it something only the purest of Pokémon fans can enjoy? Continue reading
