We wanna be the very best on this week's podcast with special guest Kat Bailey (Editor-in-Chief of USGamer.net)! Yes, it's time for the original Pokémon series on What A Cartoon! We discuss the history of the original games, and then how master animators adapted it, and THEN how one localizer turned it into a stateside monopoly. Then we go analyze the Squirtle Squad's iconic first appearance for tons of fun. So, to protect the world from devastation, please listen now!
