Welcome to the era of Sword and Shield folks! Elite Full Restore is back with a panel of friends (Steven, Silva and Morg) to talk about the upcoming Sword and Shield DLC, the competitive scene and running a Draft League for battling. We also simultaneously come up with the most galaxy-brained fan-theory of all time on the spot which you might be able to guess from the title.

Featuring: Matt, Steven, Silva and Morg.

This episode was very lightly edited due to some audio difficulties. If there’s anything particularly egregious, let us know on Twitter!

Rejoice, listeners, your long national nightmare is over! Henry Kissinger is Pokemon GOing to Die returns to the fray after taking a month to rest off the burnout. We return with a slightly tweaked format, but don’t worry, someone says “Peepee Poopoo Johnson” at some point and Sara talks about Nancy Pelosi doing orange justice so not that much has changed. In addition, Roy ponders what Bitch McTurtle is up to, Matt Gamecube  considers the dearth of actual left-wing media, and Sam saunters back into the podcast for a little round of the ol’ Movieball!

Reflect on the past year and look forward to our future together with (some of) the hosts of HKIPGTD!

010 – Spiderman of the Rings by Dan Deacon (8.7)

Play

David and Matt are joined by …absolutely nobody! It’s kind of just a David and Matt one this time. We forgot to mention that Dan Deacon’s setup included an iPod taped to a banana. However, we did not forget to mention that Dan Deacon does in fact have a rattlesnake gun AND an Aerosmith gun.

Sometimes nihilism can create the wildest dance party you’ve ever seen.

087 – The Peach Mint Podcast

Play

🍑🌱?!? Val and the Matts of Gamecube and Scotland discuss Elon’s cybertruck, the CN strike, the British leader debates, and the therapeutic effect of eating one (1) ice cream. If only Joe Biden would listen to their advice! It’s not too late to just eat an ice cream instead, Joe.

Also an announcement: HKIPGTD is going on break for the month of December! Due to the complications of scheduling in the holiday season and some host burnout, we decided it would be best to take a break from regular episodes for the month and then start fresh for the new year. Some bonus content may still make it down the pipes, and will be in your feed if it does! Semper funny!
