The beginning of this reminds me of that video that alex and vinny put out when they first started the GBE office and they're just sitting on the floor the whole time. It was also fun watching Jan, who is clearly way better at pokemon battling than me, fighting people.

Fantastic stream. Something none of the other duders have as much interest in, so I'm so glad we get to see it. We need more of this!

Peta Vs Jan match was super tense and completely hype. Well played Peta.

Man this makes me wanna buy the game now. I'll tell you: If this becomes a regular series, I will buy this game.

Hope Gaintbomb have a good Pokemon community.

Here to say I want more Pokemonday Night Combat! This was some of the most tense and enthralling stuff I've seen on GB since The Exquisite Corps, and it made me want to buy Pokemon: Let's Go exclusively so I can play Jan.

Fun stream, Jan. Not really interested in Pokemon myself, but those matches seemed like they were pretty fun; the second one was especially tense.

I found this fun and actually very informative. Pokémon let’s go has got me back into Pokémon and I haven’t played since ruby/sapphire. Let’s make this a weekly thing.

I liked this a lot. First time really watching more strategy in a Pokemon game than just matching types, and now I kind of want to try some upper level battles. Would be excited for more of this!

I've never had a lot of interest in Pokemon games but the commentary was super interesting. Really cool to see the anticipation of your opponent's moves.

Loved the first Inaugural Pokemonday Night Combat, hope Jan gets to do some more of it. Maybe even get some other people to provide commentary or pitch him questions. Also concurring the Peta fight was tense.
