Pokéballs of Steelix :: Episode 1 :: Smell Ya Later

Posted by NerdyShow on October 6, 2011


Nerdy Show’s Pokémon tabletop RPG returns! In our last Pokésode, we celebrated the release of Pokémon Black & White, and tried out an open-source, fan-made Pokémon tabletop game. As with Dungeons & Doritos before it we had a lot of fun, and folks wanted more – so we had to keep it going!  That was but episode zero, now experience episode one, as our heroes say, “smell ya later” to the life they knew.

Forty some odd years after Pokémon Red & Blue, Ash Ketchum (aka Red) runs a Pokémon Training Academy.  Following some strange events with a sinister new Pokémon, Professor Ketchum has enlisted five unlikely would-be Pokémon trainers on a mysterious quest: adventure into the world of Pokémon in the care of a legendary egg!  Darin challenges his professor to a gym battle, Jamesy has a vision, Marty gets injured, Jumanji gets sick, and Tark… Tark causes a lot of trouble. Embark on a new adventure!

  • Is it bad that I want to listen to Gark Oak’s Self-Help tapes?

  • Just listened to the whole thing now. This group is just a clusterfuck, I gotta say. A Hilarious one, nonetheless. But it seems like something is going to break in this group sometime soon.

  • Bravo sirs. God forbid Tark get his hands on that caterpie. I sense bolo style caterpie super tackles in the future.

  • I like to think that their is a guy fallowing Tark around making a nature documentary about him

  • Loved it. Haven’t laughed that hard in a while. One suggestion would be that Tark saw the use of those strange balls on unconscious Pokemon, so he tries it on the caterpie. What hijinks could ensue! Though, I understand if you don’t want. I think there’s a valid reason for either decision. Can’t wait for the next one

  • I play a pokemon tabletop game with my friends, Brandon reminds me of one player we have who tries to destroy everything, but since he’s a breeder, just gets his ass kicked, however, unlike Brandon, occasionally he’ll roll pointlessly high, and accomplish meaningless things, like persuading a shop owner to sell him his underwear.

    This was a great episode, and I can’t wait for more pokemon mischief.

  • Just listened to this episode again and I was not prepared. Had to turn off my MP3 player I was laughing so hard. Everything from the “witty” banter to the ridiculous shenanigans just… works. Absolutely one of my favorite shows.

      Awesome, dude. I should relisten too. It’s been a long time.
