The lights are on
If you thought Yoda being a part of Soul Calibur's roster was a strange crossover, wait until you see Nintendo's happy-go-lucky Pokémon invade feudal Japan. Wait... Is it even Japan? Historical figure Oda Nobunaga is in the game. He's apparently trying to destroy the Pokémon-infested Ransei region. Why? I have no idea. The one thing I do know: Pokémon conquest is weird. Ben Hanson, Kyle Hilliard, and intern Ali Rapp all try to figure out if this game's story is canon. They seriously talk about this, folks. And it feels like they discuss it for hours! This discussion becomes so intense that Kyle routinely stops playing the game to get his points across. I don't think I need to say it, but this is easily the nerdiest Test Chamber episode yet. Ben and Ali venture down a path of Pokémon admiration that I wish I never heard. I no longer respect either of them. Do yourself a favor, watch this episode without volume.
If this episode didn't scare you off, you may like our other Test Chamber shows! You can find them all in our hub.

i knew the historical characters from the Samurai Warriors series
What is this, I don't even...
I want to watch this but of course its lagging all over the place and won't let me choose quality. I think Team Rockets out to get me.
I honestly wasn't even paying attention to the gameplay.. Haha I just listened to ya'll because I was, in the words of Lady Reiner "bored s**tless."
It takes place in the present,as one of the warlords says how weird it is that other places in the world keep there Pokemon in small little balls.
Picked up this game yesterday it is actually pretty fun.
I've never heard Reiner so quiet.
