    This time on Elite Full Restore, I have YouTube and Twitter Pokémon personality @Lewtwo on to talk about the updates (or lack-thereof) for the upcoming Pokémon games, game and monster design philosophy and what we hope for out of new games and remakes. Seriously though, why do we know so little about games out next month?

    The Cave of Dragonflies

    Elite Full Restore is back with an interview-style episode! This week we have on Dragonfree from The Cave of Dragonflies, one of the oldest and longest-standing Pokémon fan-sites around on the web. We talk about Fakemon, our shared internet past at Pokémon Treasures, her favourite Pokémon picker which everyone in the world uses and of course her 17-year-spanning fanfic The Quest For the Legends, which I’ve been reading since at least 2004. This and so much more!

    If you have ideas for people we can have on the show or topics you think could sustain an hour discussion, please reach out on Twitter!

    Follow Dragonfree on Twitter and Tumblr, and of course check out her site!

    That’s all for now, see you next time!

    Pokémon Sword and Shield Roundtable Discussion

    Pokémon Sword and Shield Roundtable Discussion

    Hey folks! The dawn of the final hours are before us and Matt sat down with friends of the show Stephanie, Max and WeedLordVegeta to talk about all things positive and negative about Sword and Shield before the game launches proper in North America.

    This episode contains spoilers for unrevelealed portions of the Galar Dex and information about the game, such as Gym Leaders, which may be considered spoilers to some so tread at your own risk.

    This episode was also fully recorded by a web-hosted recording bot for simplicity, and thus will have occasional blips in the audio.

    A link that relates to a topic of discussion is this excellent article by Patricia Hernandez at Polygon about the #GameFreakLies hashtag.

    Our show art was made by Golurk and our opening theme music is, as always, the unimpeachable Pokémon Gold/Silver Surf music by Junichi Masuda and Go Ichinose. Closing theme this episode is the Sword and Shield Battle Tower theme penned by Toby Fox.
