The Community Question Edit
Are you starting to get worried about Pokkén not officially coming to Wii U or even the U.S. at all?
Kellz: I'm not worried.
Jimmy: I'm worried. The announcement of the NX as the Wii U's successor scares me because either Pokkén will never be released here or will be released on the NX, and I don't want to buy another console.
Alex: I'm like starting to get pretty worried. Like, it's very far along in its development to A: not be announced for home consoles and B: not to have been mentioned by anyone in America at all.
Email 1 (Austin) Edit
Subject: Yokai Watch vs. Pokémon: Will it be Super Effective?
Hi guys! Pokémon Breeder Austin here. I love the podcast, and you're all great. I was wanting to hear your thoughts on Yokai Watch, or more specifically, how having real competition will affect Pokémon. I want to start by saying I know next to nothing about Yokai Watch other than it has blown up in Japan and it has cross-media potential that nothing has had since Pokémon. I was wondering if you guys think having some real competition will be bad or good for Pokémon. Personally, I think it will be a very good thing for the franchise. As much as I love Pokémon, I do think GAME FREAK has gotten a bit lazy with the game seeing how at their core they've been pretty much the same with minor improvements, and I think this could force GAME FREAK to serve their fans old enough to have memories of the original games who appreciate the depth of Pokémon. From what I hear, Yokai Watch lacks that level of depth and appeal to older audiences. I'd like to reiterate that I love Pokémon, but it has been evolving quite slowly, so some real competition might also be a great thing for Pokémon. Also, would like to reiterate the great job you've been doing.
Keep it up and thanks for reading this e-mail,
Alex: I feel Yokai Watch, while giving Pokémon some competition in Japan, lacks the ability and audience base to provide any real competition anywhere outside of Japan or with older audiences.
Kellz: No signs of it being a rival.
Jimmy: No one knows what Yokai Watch is here except people that watch enough anime to be considered as 'otaku'.
Email 2 (Johnathan) Edit
Hey guys, it's me, Johnathan. Here's a fun little question for you to play along with. A game salesman comes to your door. He has four black boxes of original games from Nintendo. Each game was made by a different developer. The first box is from GAME FREAK, the second box is from Retro, the third box is from Atlas, and the fourth box is from Intelligent Systems. The only clue the salesman gives you about the games is to remember the games these developers have made before on a Nintendo platform. Which box do you choose, and if there was a fifth box, which developer would you choose for that box? Well, have fun and keep up the good work.
Jimmy: Retro; 5th Box: Platinum or Capcom
Kellz: GAME FREAK
Alex: Retro/Intelligent Systems
Email 3 (Ruben a.k.a. Moon Lizard) Edit
Greetings! I'll teach you how to change your 3DS theme:
- Open up your 3DS
- Stare at those Boos, or in my case, those Slowpokes
- Continue to stare
- Why? Look at those Boos/Slowpokes
- Close 3DS
As far as Pokémon not being at E3, not surprised, though I hoped for Pokkén. No biggie.
