July Letter from SBJ

Hey Guys! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I just got back for the National Pokémon Tournament last week. While there, I met a ton of Pokémon fans and some who knew about "It's Super Effective". This year I didn't play the video game. With 2 week prior to Nationals, I attempted to perfect my Vanilluxe/Vileplume/Victini deck for the TCG segment. Due to the slow nature of the deck, I lost 2 matches because of time alone. Overall, I was happy with my showing of 4 wins - 5 losses. Speaking of "It's Super Effective"...

Pokémon Nationals Travelogue

Well, dudes, I've been home from Pokémon Nationals for a few days now and felt like it was time to capture my thoughts in an article.  This was my first trip to Nationals and my first time meeting up with the rest of the Pokémon Podcast crew.  My memory may not be the greatest, please forgive any inaccuracies, I will try to capture as many vignettes as possible.  Keep in mind as well that I spent most of my time with Irene and Kidd, they will most likely show up more frequently in my tales.

First off - the drive to Indianapolis from DC is horrible.  Ten hours.  The first four are through the western mountains of Maryland, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.  Then it is completely flat and boring through Ohio and Indiana.  I was about seven and a half hours into the trip when I texted Irene and told her I was going to turn around and go home.  I just couldn't take it anymore!

I See Mew Redux

A while back, we shared a video from GameTrailers.com showing how to trick your Red Version or Blue Version cartridge into giving you a battle with a wild Mew, without the aid of a cheating device. Well, new information has come to light about exactly how and why it works. Check out the re-edited episode of GT's Pop-Fiction below!



App Obtained! - "EV-Gear Free"

Heya guys, Kenny here with a neat app I found for the iPod and iPhone called "EV-Gear Free"! As we all know, EV training can be a bit tough, whether you're new to it or not. Learning how to EV train is hard enough, but keeping track of all of the EVs your current Pokémon can be kind of frusterating. That's where the app comes in; simply input your Pokémon and all of its information (Level, Nature, IVs, any EVs it may have obtained Pokérus stats, and the Brace it's currently holding) and 1... 2... Ta-daa! The app comes up with the stats you should be at!

Furthermore, you can then choose an area you want to train at and keep track of how many IVs you have obtained. Say I have a Pokémon with 0 Sp.Atk EVs, a Power Lens, and Pokérus. Let us then say that I defeated a Litwick. I press the corresponding button on the app, and it's all calculated! It's a little hard to explain, so please check it out yourself!

I really hope you guys get use out of this app. If you like it, make sure to give it a good review!
