Ash discovers new lands in the latest episode of Poké Chat, where we recap 1×13 “Mystery at the Lighthouse” and 1×14 “Electric Shock Showdown.”

-The show finally describes what happens when a trainer catches more than six Pokémon.
-Both Bill and Professor Oak state that their cooks are out of town at the same time… hmmmm
-Why/how was Mewtwo on Bill’s door?
-Apparently, Dragonite’s call is the best music to dance to. Ever.
-Do Pokémon need to eat if they’re always in their Pokéballs?
-Raichu knows 6 or more moves, but Pikachu uses the environment in a smart way to fight back.
-If Team Rocket wanted to be less conspicuous, they should’t have held a flag with their logo on it while “in disguise.”
-Is Nurse Joy possessed by Mewtwo at this point? Where’d she get that Thunderstone?
-Poké fun includes a highlight of Gallade, and an awesome Magikarp sweep video.
-News includes X and preorders, semi-convincincing Fakémon, and a White House petition to have official USA state Pokémon.
-The hosts finally explain the origin of the album art.

    I just saw this on tumblr and though I needed to share. I really hope this guy does more of this!

    • Mitchel Clow

      Wow. That was intense.

      • Matthew Potter

        I really hope he does more. I like the alterations made to each of the Pokemon to make it more realistic. It reminds me of Pokemon meets DC’s Kingdom Come

        • Mitchel Clow

          And make sure to write back in too if he does make another! I’d love to be able to feature his series on Poké Chat!

    In my job I’m allowed to listen to my iPod during the day and I’ve recently been catching up with Poké Chat – it took me a little while to get into the show but now I’m totally hooked and can’t wait for your next episode! I’m a huge fan of the games but I’ve never really watched the show, though I’m broadly aware of it through sites like Bulbapedia, so it’s been great following the series with you guys. You do a great job and have come very far already since the first episode, and look forward to tuning back in soon. :)

      Thank you for your kind words! Look forward to a new episode early this week!
