Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey. You can find the show notes for previous episodes here.
In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God (download link here), it's the 20th anniversary of Pokémon's release in Japan, so Nadia and Kat reminisce about the original game and speculate on the newly-announced Pokémon Sun and Moon.
Nadia and I are both of the series, but we have somewhat different outlooks. I skew more competitive, and she enjoys playing through the monsters and capturing whatever monsters she happens to like. Both of these are totally reasonable approaches to Pokémon! That's why the series has managed to remain so popular over the years.
We recorded this episode before Pokémon Sun and Moon were formally confirmed, but we still speculate based on the leaked information and share what we're expecting. As it turns out, we didn't get much more than a teaser, but it's still interesting knowing that it will be possible to transfer monsters from the eShop version of the original Red and Blue. I'll write a bit more about that on Monday.
Next week: Obsidian's Josh Sawyer talks about Pillars of Eternity a year later and where the studio plans to go next.
