Solid, even if it doesn't reinvent the wheel.

Galarian Ponyta shines from Pokemon Sword and Shield

"Hey Mike," my RPGFan cohorts asked, "can you make us a graphic for the Pokémon Sword and Shield video review?"

"Why certainly," I cordially respond, "which of Sword and Shield's 400 pokémon would you like me to feature? There are a lot of choices, but clearly only one correct one."

"O-oh, well, I personally really like Toxic--"

"I agree, Galarian Ponyta it is," I finish, clearly totally in sync with everyone else's thoughts.

But hey, enough about that. Joe recently reviewed Pokémon Sword and Shield for the ol' Emerald Shield here, and while he liked it, it didn't Whirlwind him away. I'd liken it more to a Gust, with the occasional Air Cutter. Today, we're pleased to be able to offer Joe's review in video form, narrated by the man himself.

Give it a Peck peek now on YouTube! And please, if you have been liking our foray into video reviews, it helps us a lot if you can like the video, and because algorithms, watch the video to the end, too. Do let us know your thoughts, and enjoy!
