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.

If you've never played Pokemon Colosseum Ben you need to go play it, it's a full 3D Pokemon game in classic style and it was awesome!
there were 2 gamecube 3d pokemon rpg's, pokemon colosseum, and pokemon xd gale of darkness. Colosseum was one of the hardest games I've played and xd is really a much better game. Neither however is as long as one of the main series games.
Hahaha, the description of this video already has me laughing. This is gonna be great.
I prefer the games up to the 3rd gen. Back in Leaf Green and fire red. I would love for a new game set in that region with team rocket again
WHY IS THERE MEWTWO THERE! HE ISN'T EVEN REALY AN ANCIENT POKEMAN!
Lol that was hilarious. Reiner felt soo outta place.
But...but...Reiner! Did Kyle win that last battle?! Also, even though I haven't played a Pokemon game since Gold/Silver, I would lose my *** if they did a full-on 3D console version of Pokemon.
Ali and Dan on the next episode of Replay, Plz. She's outstanding!
Oh god, I feel asleep.
Better to consider this pure fanfiction - we all know Nintendo has no consistent lore anyway. Suspend your disbelief and such.
Also, Bidoof sucks. And he totally got owned with a rock. Ha ha.
Do you remember that part where Brock stayed with that Professor Ivy or w/e, and then he came back and wouldn't speak of it? Like something... nasty happened.
Yeah you guys might be more nerdy than me - and Lady Reiner would kick all of our asses.
Screw you Lady Reiner I would flip my *** for a Pokemon MMO especially if it had that gym mechanic.
I want a Sequel to XD Gale of Darkness!
Pokemon has mentioned states from the USA before.
So I think it's like a hybrid of made up places and real places.
I am so used to the turn based versions of Pokemon.
i have been entertained!
haha good Test Chamber! Pokemon has always been a up or down game for me. Now speaking of the show (1st Season), I loved it! haha This game looked boring to be honest, nothing I would ever have an interest to play or a desire to pick up. Looks like a good game for the type who do like those kind of fighting turn based games.
