Wow, with all the hubbub around Pokémon Let's Go it can be easy to forget that the original games released 20 years ago (or 22 years ago in Japan)! The phenomenon of pocket monsters continues to this day and seems to be one of Nintendo's enduring juggernauts able to spin off into everything from disaster relief games to live-action sleuthing films. This week we invited Kevin Slackie on the show to talk about both the original Game Boy titles and their newest incarnation in Pokémon Let's Go!
Outro music: Pokémon Red 'Moondrops' by Sockpuppet (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR02514)
