  1. Welcome to the thirteenth week of my Pokémon feature here on Game Podunk! In case you missed the last one, check it out! Stay tuned for future entries coming every Friday morning. Also! I'm extending my Mew giveaway to give you guys more time to enter. -------------------------------- Musically Inclined Somewhere, there is a parallel universe out there where I spent years of my life studying the craft of music instead of the craft of writing. I“m more than a little obsessed with music (particularly in games, with my physical/digital soundtrack collection being...well...larger than most, suffice to say.) The Pokémon games are no exception. I“ve actually purchased every single soundtrack available via iTunes! And I“m most definitely interested in Symphonic Evolutions. If and when they ever make their way to Florida, I hope to devote an Individual Values to reviewing a performance I personally witness! As each Nintendo handheld has gotten more and more powerful, Pokémon music has evolved, just like the critters themselves. Just listen to how the instrumentals have evolved between and the . Another great example—since the same theme exists across two generations—compare Looker“s Theme to . There“s absolutely no question that Game Freak/Junichi Masuda have learned a thing or two in nineteen years of developing games. Of course, I want to know what your favorite songs from the franchise (whether it be the games or the anime, even) are! Perhaps the Game Podunk Pokémaniacs will put together a ranking of Pokémon music sometime. It“s certainly a good discussion point. Remember the days when Legendary Pokémon didn“t have specific themes? In Red, Blue and Yellow, the music that played when you encountered Mewtwo was the same as when you ran into your first Pidgey on Route 1. But—after playing Pokémon ORAS—I“ve realized just how many Legendary Pokémon (and specific themes to make them unique) there are. One of the nice touches of that game was the flashback offered to the Legendary Beast trio from Johto. While Ho-Oh and Lugia got their HeartGold/SoulSilver theme variants, when encountering Suicune, for example—the original 8bit theme from GSC plays. What kinds of music from the games get stuck in your head, even if they“re not necessarily your favorites? The happy-go-lucky music that almost seems like it was arranged with parody in mind always make me smile. Whether we“re talking about Looker“s Theme, which I already mentioned, or something like the or the —the happy stuff is particularly the catchiest, for me personally. What are some of your favorites? Be sure to sound off below!
  2. Welcome to the second week of my Pokémon feature here on Game Podunk! In case you missed last week's, check it out! Stay tuned for future entries coming every Friday morning. ---------------------------- A New Old Journey By the time you all read this, many of you will already be playing through Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire. I know I“ll be on the eShop at midnight watching servers crash and burn in my wake as I scramble to try to download the game for myself and my lady. You've all seen , maybe even played the demo. ORAS has marketed itself to be the most immersive remake to date, offering features never before seen in a Pokémon game, new Mega Evolutions, and more. With ORAS in mind, I want to hear all your thoughts about remakes. We“re actually just a few months past the tenth anniversary of FireRed & LeafGreen, which came to North America on September 9th, 2004. I still remember doing several metaphorical backflips when they announced HeartGold & SoulSilver back in May of 2009. When they threw in all lead Pokémon being able to walk behind their trainer(s) and the Pokéwalker for good measure, that game quickly shot up to legendary status for me. I“d have to say the second gen remakes are my favorite so far, but I“m definitely approaching Hoenn with an open mind. Thinking about remakes gets my synapses firing in all sorts of directions, if I“m being honest. It“s thanks to HeartGold that the first Pikachu I caught in FireRed got to go back to her home in Viridian Forest, on a different system—and years later (when you think about the time passed in actual Pokémon canon when it comes to FireRed and HeartGold), it“s kind of like Pikachu-ception. Heck, the six Pokémon you see above have traveled to every single known region in the main series of handheld games except Hoenn. That“s Kanto, Johto, Sinnoh, Unova and Kalos. They“ve all become Hall of Famers many times over. And before long, as soon as Pokémon Bank is able to talk to the new games, they“ll get their shot fighting the Hoenn League Champion as well. Pokémon, to me, isn“t just about catching them all. I thoroughly enjoy doing so, and I“m going to try to capture as many Pokémon native to ORAS as I can before simply transporting my boxes full of them from Kalos and becoming a Master again. What the games are really about, to me, is the immense attachment I have to those six Pokémon, for example—my original team from almost nine years ago. Or the many memories I“ve made traveling with and training over fifty Pokémon for competitive battle. So. Many. Nicknames. I can“t wait to make new memories with Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire! But until then… what“s your favorite Pokémon remake so far? Are you more attached to the first generation ones, or the second? As I was writing, I got an idea of another question to ask. Would any of you be interested in seeing FireRed & LeafGreen, a remake...be remade again with the Pokémon X&Y engine? I asked the question on Twitter and got some mixed results: Stay tuned next week to hear my first impressions of Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire! I hope everyone playing enjoys their new old journey.
