GOTTA CATCH ‘EM ALL! This week we’re talking to comedian and Twitch streamer, Filipe Dimas (he/him) about the highest grossing media franchise of all time: Pokémon! We discuss the vast range of pocket monsters, from regular-ass Pigeons to time-bending Poke-Gods, the most boring or bizarre Pokémon and how East Asian mythology informs the design. We also get into competitive gaming, the value of the cards, why Ash’s Pikachu needs to go to therapy, and how contemplating the interior of Pokeballs maaaaaay lead to an existential crisis. 

Produced by Andrew Ivimey as part of The From Superheroes Network.
