    Darling and Balloo are back to continue through Gen III (apologies but looks like the starters ep is lost to the aether).

    Balloo & Darling are back, joined once more by Steph Metzger, bringing her PhD in Dairy Science to talk Miltank, Elekid, Magby, Smoochum, and Blissey.

We're hazily recalling our conversations and still veering off on wild tangents about Delibird, Mantine, Houndour, Houndoom, Kingdra, and Skarmory.
