    151 - The (New) Math Episode

    Well, it looks like Scarlet & Violet reinvented math! In a new version of our earlier Math Episode (Episode 11), Mike runs through the importance of the damage calculation, terastalization, and critical hits. It'd be nice if you critically hit the follow button. Heh heh.

    149 - Never Underestimate The Bundle

    Quick note: Protosynthesis/Quark Drive increases Attack/Def/SpAtk/SpDef by 30% and Speed by 50%, not the other way around.

    Kevin and Mike discuss EVERY SINGLE PARADOX POKEMON in the game. What they do, why they're useful, or why they're Iron Thorns.

    Also, it's just about time for Orlando Regionals. Will Mike and Kevin be going? Yes.

    Today we get into the San Diego Regionals. We talk about the power that meta calls have over a society, and the unraveling a simple counterpick can do.

    Which tera types are the best to use? Which are the most commonly used?

    146 - Battling Bugs

    146 - Battling Bugs

    Hey there, and welcome to the latest episode of Pokésports, and the final for 2022!

    In today's episode, we're chatting about some of the frustrating bugs and glitches we've experienced. Have you ever sat on Battle Stadium trying to find a match, only to be booted out and told "Sorry, no players are available"? Or have you had your Pokemon disappear for 20 seconds mid-battle? 

    We also discuss the upcoming Oceania Internationals and the fact that they'll be played using Series 1 rules. While this is great news for players who are used to competing under these rules, it can be a bit of a challenge for those who are gearing up for Series 2, which is set to start at the beginning of February.

    And speaking of regional tournaments, we also mention the Florida regionals and how they'll be using Series 1 rules as well. It's important to note that this means a shorter window for players to practice on cartridge, but hey, at least it's only for a few days, right?

    Overall, it's clear that there are still some kinks to work out in the latest Pokemon game, but we're hopeful that future updates will address these issues and make for a smoother competitive experience. Thanks for tuning in, and we'll catch you in the next episode!

I’ll start by saying I absolutely love the podcast. Hump day is now my favorite day of the week because of the weekly release.

Regarding the Mew episode, I think either Kevin miss-spoke or I’m misunderstanding. Around 43 minutes the debate of STAB and non effective vs coverage move normal damage came up. The non-STAB coverage move should ALWAYS do more damage as long as items/weather/terrain/other factors don’t change between moves.

STAB 1.5 * .5 (not effective) = .75
Normal damage = 1.0

If it’s a Terra STAB of 2.0, then the damage is identical to a non STAB normal damage.
