“This is why we fight, Charmander. It’s not so that we can win. It’s so that, for however brief a moment, we can inflict pain on a world that will not let us end.”
On this week’s episode of the Hey Poor Podcast, an innocent discussion about Pikachu’s new found ability to speak English in Pokemon The Movie: I Choose You becomes a tale of nihilism, despair, and the fruitless belief that something good is coming. Because videogames! Join I “Detective Pikachu (English Dub)” Coleman, Nathan “Gigafarts” Terencio, and Jay “Archie Peglio” Petrequin as we dunk on Justice League, try and fail to get Neir: Automata’s garbage PC port to work, wish that Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon could be more fun than they are, and discuss the endless bitter saga of EA being terrible. All this and more, on the only podcast that features Pikachu asking of a cruel God: “Where is my blast? From whence comes my off again?”
