4/29 Pokemon Smash Live Coverage [VIDEO UPD]


Pokemon Smash aired earlier today, and, as per usual, we did our live coverage! The episode really focused on Keldeo, and to showcase some of it’s abilities the cast of Pokemon Smash used it in several battles! The gameplay footage shown revealed Keldeo to be #298 in the BW2 Pokedex and showed off a cool new route covered in balance beams. As well as revealing that Sewaddle, Growlithe, Sunkern, Koffing, Magby and Magnemite can all be encountered and caught in the wild early in the game!

Live Coverage:


  • – Pokemon Smash has started! The preview for the episode only really showed the BW Keldeo battle, so that’s probably all we’re gonna get. :/
  • – The anime rerun has started! ((Oh how I’ve missed Larvitar and Togepi. ;-; and lol it’s the episode where Brock actually opened his eyes))
  • – The anime rerun is now over!
  • – The cast is now doing some really creepy Pokemon cosplay scavenger hunt thing. :p
  • – The Keldeo battle is coming up next!
  • – Keldeo is #298 in the BW2 Pokedex
  • – Sewaddle can be found in a very early route at lvl. 2
  • – Gameplay footage shows a very cool looking route with balancing beams everywhere
  • – Gameplay footage also shows that Koffing, Magby, Magnemite and Sunkern can all be encountered in the wild and caught very early in BW2!
  • – Preview for next week’s episode doesn’t show anything news worthy. :/


    1. ahahaha Thanks, but that’s not my voice. :p
      It’s not me doing the livestream, it’s someone else. xD

  1. We got footage of that port town? Possible New Gym City or Shizui’s city but I think his is earlier.

        1. That might be the southern part of Driftviel. Since the ice box is gone and there is grass in the city area, that may be the new part of it. :3

  2. Definitely that new route shown is in the new area right below where Driftveil City is.

    I am thrilled that better Pokemon can be found earlier on in the game. The beginning game selection in Black and White was terrible.

    1. I agree so much. I never want to go through another ridiculously-boring Normal-type Fiesta like the one before the Striaton Gym.

    2. Agreed, other than Purrloin, they were all boring normal types, as if they wanted you to go into the Striaton Gym with your starter alone.

      Back in Hoenn, you had a wide variety of Pokemon to catch before the first gym, even though Zigzagoon was on every single route before Rustboro Gym, but Poochyena and Ralts were available, even if each one was only found on only one or two routes in the entire game (Emerald made Poochyena more available by putting it and it’s evolution Mightyena on more routes), Kanto, Johto, and Sinnoh, on the other hand, did not have as much of a variety, or at least Pokemon that were extremely useful against the first gym.

      1. Well really every region besides Unova has had a lot of variety before the first gym. Example:
        Kanto: Caterpie, Weedle, Pidgey, Ratata, Spearow, Mankey, Pikachu, etc.
        Johto: Sentret, Ratata, Geodude, Zubat, Bellsprout, Spinarak, Ledyba, Weedle, Caterpie, Mareep, Wooper, Gastly, etc.
        Hoenn: Zigzagoon, Poochyena, Wingull, Ralts, Marill, Lotad, Seedot, Tailow, Wurmple, Shroomish, Slakoth, and a lot more.
        Sinnoh: Bidoof, Starly, Shinx, Kricketot, Magikarp, Psyduck, Zubat, Budew, Geodude, Onix, Machop, Ponyta, etc.
        And then we have Unova: Lillipup, Patrat, Purrloin, and one of the elemental monkeys gifted to you. That is four Pokemon other than your starter. It was just ridiculous!

        … I got carried away with this post. lol

  3. I just realized genesect is about 99% to be the new pokemon. The reason i think this is because kelado is #298 so that means theirs only 2 spots left in the regular dex and the pokemon that are likely to follow are meloetta and genesect… Ahh im still gonna keep my hopes up their is a new pokemon because i really wanted some in this game but who knows i can still be wrong about meloetta and genesect?

  4. OH MY GLOB Growlith and Magnemite!!! He’s always been a favorite of mine since steel was added to his type in gen 2, but Im excited now!
    I really wany Eevee and Mareep to! idk how Eevee will work tho since I want a Leafeon and I plan on getting Snivy as my starter. I may opt for Oshawott.

  5. Did anyone else notice that they mentioned FireRed and LeafGreen at about 2 minutes in? What’s that about?

  6. OMG Magby!!! I looove Magmortar. I’ll have to use him on my team! It’s tough to find a decent pure fire type ㅜ_ㅜ

    1. But isn’t it bad that the Magmar you trained carefully goes to the arms of a stranger and what turns back is that stranger’s magmar and evolution, you don’t know how it’s trained, who is its trainer.

    1. This literally made me laugh out loud, and I can’t tell if you’re trying to be sarcastic or not.

      Ho-Oh is like the least likely bird Pokemon it could be. No resemblance.

      1. I’m surprised you think so. The giant plume on the mystery bird’s head strongly resembles the one on Ho-Oh’s. It has the same claws. Its wings are similarly segmented. Ho-Oh’s tail sticks straight out behind it; the mystery bird’s tail seems to do something similar. And I think it’s not a coincidence they’d show Ho-Oh all of a sudden in Smash. It’s just a theory, but really, I think the resemblance is pretty strong.

        1. I’m not trying to be rude or anything; but here I am looking at a few pictures of Ho-Oh and I still don’t see the resemblance at all.
          The plume on the Mystery Bird is much to large to be Ho-Oh’s, if it even is a plume on its head and not its head itself.
          Ho-Oh’s legs are skinnier than that of the Mystery Bird.
          Ho-Oh doesn’t have bumps on it’s wings.
          On the Mystery Bird, if it really is Ho-Oh: Where is Ho-Oh’s massive beak? It would be sticking out somewhere.
          The neck of the mystery bird Pokemon is too thick to be Ho-Oh’s. The neck and head shape all together are too thick to be Ho-Oh.
          And lastly, Ho-Oh’s tail does not stick straight out behind him…. I don’t even understand that one. Have you seen Ho-Oh? He has a large, explosion of feathers behind him for a tail. It is a huge tail, that would be the most distinguishing feature in a silhouette.
          Ho-Oh is just not a possibility.

          1. With all due respect, those are largely pretty small differences. It’s easy to say that the size of the plume or legs or the thickness of the neck are, all things considered, kind of minor details. Those things easily vary from depiction to depiction.
            This is a 3D model, remember. The beak wouldn’t show because it would be facing forward. The same applies to the explosive tail; it’s true that the tail is huge, but because the sprite is in 3D, most of those feathers are obscured by the rest of the silhouette; those feathers that can be seen definitely resemble Ho-Oh’s. There’s also the fact that Ho-Oh was shown during Smash to consider. I doubt they’d showcase Ho-Oh randomly like that.
            As for the bumps on the wings, that I can admit I have no explanation for. Maybe it’s some aspect of the targeting system? I’m not sure. Ho-Oh definitely does not have wing-bumps. Still, I think there’s a lot more evidence for the bird being Ho-Oh than you think. Again, though, this is really just idle speculation.
