I'm sorry guys, but this post has to be a short one. I final exams this week and I don't have as much time as I usually do and everything is just stupid. (Don't you miss being in high school?) I'll try to make it up to you though. Next weeks post may be a long one and in this post I'll do multiple mini facts that a lot of you probably already know (sue me!), but it's better than nothing, right? Though I do give you permission to hate me, if you don't already. (:
Clean the dust off your Game Boys, because today facts are going to be about Red and Blue, which if you remember came out way back in 1998 and you should be please to know that I was already born during that time. I was only two at the time, but I was alive and well, which should count for something! And now time for the facts:
In Red and Blue, you were able to use a fishing rod on the Rhydon statues. However, nothing was found unless you used an Old Rod. Ninetales' name was originally spelled as "Nine Tales" in some early copies of the game. Some beta versions of Red and Blue list Machamp's original name as "Ju-Doh." The Nidorino that appears in Professor Oak's introduction has the cry of a Nidorina. Red and Blue only use 37 completely unique sound clips for cries. The sounds are played back in different ways for each Pokemon. And finally, they collectively are the best selling (non-bundled) game of all time.
If everything would have went smooth last night, episode 021 would have been up by now. In that episode we congratulated Sarah, aka acciolove, about becoming an editor. Whoooo! Yet, we have to re-record episode 021 again tonight. No big deal.
Acciolove is our new Pokémon Facts Editor. She will be providing fact about Pokémon stuff that you may not even know about. Sarah is our youngest editor, and if you read her bio, she is also my sister. After a couple months of begging me to be an editor, she came to me with the idea of doing weekly facts. Her first article is pretty awesome. I hope you guys enjoy what Sarah has to bring to the table, and everyone welcome her with open arms.
