Johnny says "Pokemon" a lot.

Johnny reviewed all 3 of the original games released outside of Japan during Month of Pokemon. He liked the games but stated he preferred the newer games and that these games haven't aged well. He also did a video of Yellow's Surfing Pikachu minigame.


Johnny, Elliot and Matt have let's played the first generation (the Red version to be exact) and are planning to do the second generation at the end of "The Summer of 2's".
