Elite Full Restore welcomes Reigning Pokémon International VGC Champion and Current (And Only) WBE League Champion and 2016 World’s Pokémon VGC Masters Champion Wolfe Glick and @falseswipeg writer, published e-sports writer, perennial guest and friend of the show Zane for a long discussion about the Pokémon competitive scene, the meaning of narrative for both players and viewers in an e-sports community and which Pokémon could be considered war crimes under the Geneva Convention.
Analog is a weekly podcast focusing on the Super Smash Bros. Melee community and any topic that might be related to a 17 year old game we play on 20 pound TVs, hosted by Rishi and Zane.
Elite Full Restore yet again took too long to make an episode, even with a fill-in host! We welcome back Zane as Aury enjoys their post-marital bliss, and nerd out more than usual. If this episode isn’t showing up in your podcast feed, it’s probably because iTunes and Google Play are being weird with the new episode URLs.
