I love how Jan talks through the process. Very entertaining, especially since he's holding it down on his own! :cools

I don't keep it a secret. It is one of my favorites. Probably because I am terrible at competitive Pokemon and this is very interesting to see how it's done.

Love Jan's positive attitude and how he explains his decision-making. Getting that Pokemon itch now too, but it seems like such a huge time investment to build a competitive team.

Jan "Kamina" Jerome Ochoa at the end there.

Really digging these streams, I've never been good at competitive Pokemon but seeing Jan work through it really makes me want to try it out.

So damn glad Jan is getting good screen time. Never done Pokemon stuff in my life. Watch every episode of this as soon as I can. Is this my 'I don't watch Anime'?

My favorite part about every pokemonday night combat is how surprised Jan says "oh, hey!" at the camera like we just walked in on him doing something naughty

Can we talk about how great this feature is and, AND, how much the production value is going up every week?! Well done Jan!

This series is great! I was just thinking that he should transition this into a Nuzlocke run at some point, glad to hear that may happen.

It's not easy carrying an entire stream by yourself... and Jan does it masterfully. Always look forward to these. Keep it up!

I love this series. Jan is so soothing. I fit it in wherever I need the cooling balm of a positive, fun person who is enjoying what he's doing.

I also need to note that these are very great, and whatever you need to get your Nuzlocke greenlit, say the word!
