I will be impressed to hear that Twitch Plays Pokemon beats the game when they do (and they will eventually) but it also feels like I’ve been hearing about it nonstop for the better part of a week and a half at this point.
Tepig, my favorite Pokemon, was available but I went with Loudred instead. I always liked the designs in the Whismur line, and even trained an Exploud up to level 100 (very badly, with a kind of terrible moveset). Whismur’s transformation into Loudred was startling and awesome, a thing the Pokemon series still does and I completely love it.
I have gotten the chance to work with Tom Lennon on many occasions, and it’s never anything short of a blast. One of the things that make it so much fun is that he is never at a loss for words. Enjoy.
(If you like the show, please let people know about it! If this is your first time watching Speakeasy with Paul F. Tompkins, there are many more episodes for your viewing pleasure to be found here on my YouTube channel.)
I love the rapport Lennon and Tompkins have with each other. There’s also an episode of the Paul F Tompkast where they discuss Frank Gehry architecture and it is a hoot.
