Yay! Kallie guest appearance!

I've really enjoyed listening to her on the Gamespot after dark podcast, and I'm happy to see her on some Giantbomb content!

Kallie was awesome on this episode. Def try to have her on for more of these! The deeper conversation about abilities was cool af to listen to, whether I understood all of it or not.

1. Kallie guest appearance was great, would love to see her in more episodes!

2. Jan should absolutely name his Falinks “Vengaboys”.

The Jeff chair's close up cam is a bit too blue compared to the wide shot.

@janman Your Falinks is not named POGIBOYZ and I'm ashamed for you.

All kidding aside, excellent episode of an excellent series. Just great. I love reading the comments/chat and seeing it appeal to people who don't even understand Pokemon.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love competitive gaming, I love Pokémon, and can’t stand competitive Pokémon; but I love this series.

Kallie should just be the co-host of this show. She's very good

@janman: Please make sure you download all the latest rulesets for next episode, ranked season 2 is one you need for the VGC-legal GMax pokemon. I tried to get a match all episode but something in Sword and Shield's netcode doesn't like me? I was matched up against fellow viewers every time.

This was a really exciting episode even for me as someone who hasn't played Pokemon since the DS. I think Kallie's great and adds a lot of energy as someone Jan can wax strats with. Hope she can join more often!

Absolutely love this series. I have zero interest in playing these games. Haven't really played since X&Y but with Jan as our Trainer, I'm all for it. Love watching these.

Kallie was a great addition. I like the idea of having her co-host again.

It feels so weird having a guest host on this that actually knows about Pokemon.

Can we get this series on YouTube? Or another video player?
Giant Bomb's player usually doesn't work.
So happy that Giant Bomb is doing Pokemon stuff, I'd just like to actually watch it..
