How Hard is it to Grow up in the Pokémon Universe? (Feat. Mr Sunday Movies)

In which our heroes turn ten, get a magic animal from a professor, and leave home forever as they ask how do people grow up in the Pokémon world? We discuss gym economy, shake our heads at islands only available by swimming, and catch god. Jackson’s favourite pokémon is 165 souls, Zammit keeps calling a machop a machomp, Duscher elaborates on the Pokemon War, and James just can’t deal with any of it. So open your pokédex, aim it directly at the embodiment of time, and have an uncomfortable religious awakening. Gotta catch em all! And by them we sometimes mean deities.

Want to help Jackson open a bike shop? Head to and for as little as $1 a month, we can help him set up shop.
