USgamer's RPG Podcast Reviews Pokémon Sun and Moon

AXE OF THE BLOOD GOD: All of the discussion about the latest generation of Pokémon!

Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey. You can find the previous episodes here.

In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God (download link here), we review Pokémon Sun and Moon! And we have quite a bit to say as we dive into every facet of Generation 7.

For this review, I opted to do a spoiler and a non-spoiler segment. If you want to hear all about the end of the story, Ultra Beasts, and the postgame, fast-forward to 44:15 and listen from there. If not, then fast-forward to 1:04:10! As a sidenote, I also took part in GameXplain's review roundtable, so if you want even more Pokémon analysis, check it out!

In addition to our Pokemon review, we also talk a bit about the Persona 5 delay and Conan O'Brien's takedown of Final Fantasy XV on his Clueless Gamer segment, and we read your RPG villain suggestions!

Show Description

Kat and Nadia recount Conan O'Brien's Clueless Gamer segment on Final Fantasy XV and discuss the latest Persona 5 delay, then dive deep into Pokemon Sun and Moon. Is the story successful? How are the totem battles? Do we like the new monsters? And just how glad are we that HMs are finally dead? (Spoiler: We're really glad). Note: Spoilers begin at the 44:15 mark and end at the 1:04:10 mark of the episode!
