55 - #BringBackTimer...Please?
Maybe if we add a "Please" to the end of it, they'll pay more attention. It's been an issue since the very beginning of Sword and Shield - The in-game timer has not been kind to the singles game, which has led a lot of people to feel abandoned. Kevin and Mike discuss.

Pokésports Podcast 54 - The Ethics of Pokémon
Kevin & Mike discuss the concept of generating Pokémon - this has been around for possibly longer than you think it has, and barring any kind of precisely-worded ban, it won't be going anywhere anytime soon. We hope this can educate, or at least provoke some interesting thought on the topic. Pokésports will now also be recording live on YouTube instead of Twitch. Make sure you check that out next Sunday at 9pm EST!
