Vacation for VGCs

I will be taking the next week off. During this time... I will be driving 8 hours to Indiana to compete in the VGCs. Hopefully, I make it past the last chance quailifier. If I do, then I move onto Saturday/Sunday!

I will be updating info on my Twitter or via the Facebook group. Even possibly Tumblr.

Any orders placed will be shipped late next week. Any e-mails for concerns, comments, questions, will be answered next week as well. Sorry for any inconvenience. 

Good news from all this is that we will open up Grey League officially when I get back.  

Thanks for being awesome!

Wish me luck,

What is PKMNcast?

A lot of news this Monday.

If you follow my personal twitter, you would have saw that the other night I bought two new domain names!

One of those I have already mentioned: pkmnstore.com

You can also type in pokemon.goodsie.com - but we like our new URL better!

So in not wanting to be sued by Nintendo and/or GameFreak and/or the Pokémon Company, I cannot make a real logo for the site with the word "Pokémon" - but since I own the domain: www.pokemonpodcast.com - that is my right (that I OWN) to put onto shirts. I think every site needs a logo, and while this post isn't about our new logo (which is coming), it is about our new domain. 

We will ALWAYS call the site Pokemon Podcast DOT com, but to make things easier, you can just type "pkmncast.com" into your browser to jump over to our site now. Pretty cool, right?

You probably guessed it, we can't use Pokémon in a logo, but we can use PKMN. Clever, right?
