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"...

Things That Show Up On Sarah's Tumblr Dash

And on a lighter note, to replace my lack of posting facts (I promise I will!) I am going to give you guys this. As some of you may know, I am a big Tumblr user, and I really do try to get traffic to the Diglett Cave and or the site itself, because I do have quite a lot of followers. Well, I see some pretty weird and amusing stuff on my dash, since I do follow about 250 people, give or take a few, and some of that stuff relates to Pokemon. So I don’t know if this is going to be a weekly thing, but the image down below is something I saw on my dash and it made me laugh and I think Stevie will find this especially enjoyable, because the same thing basically happened to us with out sister, Samantha. Tell me what you think! If you like this whole idea, I will continue doing it. If not, no big lost… I just really wanted to share the following with people! :D

We've talked about this on the show, but for those who like to read, here is the scoop. These Pokémon are a trio of elemental monkeys known in Japan as Yanappu, Baoppu, and Hiyappu. Here in the English Countries, they will be knowns as (from left to right) Pansear, Pansage, and Panpour.

Pokémon Black and White is set to release March 6th. Which monkey will you get?

PokéFact: Things Unseen

It's your favorite time of week again! That's right, PokéFactDay-- otherwise known as Tuesday, if you don't like the bizzar looks when you say Happy PokéFactDay! In celebration of the new year and to brighten your day because you keep writing "2010" and then needing to cross out the last two digits and replace them with "11" since you're not use to writing the date yet, we have TWO semi-facts that some people have probably noticed already, while others weren't paying close attention. And I even made animations for you!!! Aren't I nice? So here are two things you might have not noticed why watching/playing/reading Pokémon. 


First, if you look at Diglett you notice he has his body, two eyes and a nose. Pretty normal right? But what if it isn't a nose. Look again: See the white spot towards the top left of his "nose"? (inside the yellow circle if you didn't notice my helpful hint) What if it is in fact really not a...

PokéFact: The Seizure Episode

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope that all of you guys had a lovely Christmas. Once again, I am here in hopes to blow your mind with a fact you didn't know. Jeez guys, can't you just lie and make me feel better. :P Ahaha, kidding, but here is my attempt.

On December 16th, 1997 an episode titled Electric Soldier Porygon aired in Japan. It would have been episode 38 if it and another episode were not ban before hand, since It came before Pikachu's Goodbye, and after Ditto's Mysterious Mansion. Any of this sounding familiar? In the episode, there was a scene where Ash and his friends were inside a computer with a Porygon and some missiles exploded.  It was a fifteen second section in which Pikachu used an electric attack on some vaccine missiles. The explosion was shown as a bright flashing object which alternated rapidly between red and blue. Because of this nearly seven hundred Japanese children suffered seizures, vomiting, irritated eyes and other symptoms due to a flashing strobe effect. The Electric Soldier Porygon only aired that single time and was never commercially released or re-broadcast anywhere in the world due to it being banned by the Japanese government. Also, this episode gained Pokémon the dubious title of "Most Seizures Caused by an Animated Television Program" from The Guinness Book of World Records. Despite Pikachu being the one to cause the explosion causing the seizure attacks, Porygon had never had another important role in an episode since. And neither has Porygon-Z who is currently the only Generation IV Pokémon that hasn't appeared in the anime or movies.

So if you were wondering why you never saw Porygon or Porygon-Z, you can blame the episode that caused seizures.

PokéFact: Professors of Nature


Sorry this is so late guys. I tried posting twice last night so you would see it this morning, but my computer is stupid so I decided to do it this morning, only I had no time before school and now after homework and cleaning, I come to you with your PokéFact... Ahh, don't you miss being young?

This week PokéFact is that every single main professor is named after a tree. Yup, that's right. There is Professor Oak, Professor Elm, Professor Birch, Professor Rowan and Professor Araragi. Professor Araragi also happens to be the only female professor to be a main character in anime. There are other professors who relate to this pattern as well, such as Professor Silktree and Professor Ivy, though I know ivy is a plant and not a tree. There are more nature like names as well! Professor Fuji and Professor Westwood to name a few. 

That has been your Pokéfact this week! Did anyone else catch that while playing the games, watching the show or just stalking the internet? 

001 Late Night Toys

001 Late Night Toys from Pokémon Podcast on Vimeo.

The season premier of the Pokémon Podcast's first web show/video podcast. SBJ goes toy hunting in various stores. Also, SBJ sits down and talks about a big part of the show, Featured Team. We have a who's that Pokémon segment, as well as, a Pokémon YouTube Video that we added. It may seemed rushed. But this is almost like a full test for quality, sound, cameras, people, timing transitions... aka... video Podcasts are a lot of WORK!
