Max as Pikachu! Carboni as Ash! E3 as Rowdy Roddy Piper Movie! Hooray!


[Update: Here is some of the amazing art for this episode by Sarah Thomas.]

We're trying something new for Season 2 of Teenage Pokemon. Each episode will start off with a story about a spiky-eared Pikachu, as played by none other than The Dtoid Show's Max Scoville. Anthony Carboni plays his trainer and Eric Stuart (the original voice actor for Brock in the US anime) plays Brock. We also got one or two videogame developers to do cameos in upcoming episodes, so watch for that. 

The second half of the show focuses on some of the Pokemon we introduced in Teenage Pokemon season 1 and the fun of watching E3 press conferences. We had to do the writing and voice acting for this episode back in April in order to get the animation done by June, so we weren't able to parody any particular aspect of E3 2013. Imagine my surprise when I saw Microsoft's showing at E3 this year. It was like they read my mind. There are definitely some things here that relate more with how Apple, Sony, EA, Capcom and Nintendo do business, but quite accidentally, this episode ended up being primarily about Microsoft. 

Reality imitating parody is something that's usually reserved for the Youtube comments on this show, and not multi-billion dollar corporations. Hopefully Microsoft will keep backpedaling away from that direction. I'd hate for the episode I have planned about Someone's PC sucking people's souls turning them into energy drinks to also become a reality. 

Thanks for watching!
