April Fools!

...okay not really. Hello everybody, enjoying the good weather? I sure am! Any who last month we released Episode 26: Gimme a Chance. Unlike last episode, this one had a waaay easier name to come up with. How could we resist the pun. In this episode we wondered, what causes the player to go back to the entrance of the safari zone when you used up all of your steps. We figured there must be a moderator of some sort making sure people like Red don't ignore the rules. Like with every HM in this series, the special prize of the safari zone is utterly useless. Perhaps the safari zone should make the prize a nugget or like a porygon or something. At the end of the episode we teased the next gym leader (FINALLY) and I hope you guys are looking forward to it.

That brings me to my next topic, Episode 27. I regrettably announce that I will not be able to get it out this month. I have said many times before to various people, April is the worst month in terms of school. I will try to get a trailer down the line this month so you can geta  feel what you are in for with Koga. Well shall we move onto March's Question? Yes, yes we will. March's question was How does Brock celebrate his St. Patrick's day? Small turnout this time, perhaps it was the odd question

Ryan said "He makes his own 3 leaf clovers in celebration of this day. It is a tradition passed down in his family for generations....He takes a leaf off of a 4 leaf clover, and glues it on to a 2 leaf clover. That way, he's hitting two Pidgey with one Geodude....that joke was Onixpectedly bad. I should be aShaymined of myself." Don't feel bad. It made me laugh. I laughed so much that my Hypno longer feels good...eh I tried

B-rad said "Brock would celebrate st patty's day by sitting at home babysitting all his little brothers and sister and he would eat the really nice wal-mart festive sugar cookies" That's kinda sweet. I hope Brock did that and didn't deliver Pizza's

As for this month's question, What would you rather have the safari zone give away besides HM03?

Enjoy your April (cause I sure am trying)

Happy March!

Hey everyone, have you been enjoying this March? I have not, it has been way too cold here. Without further ado, last month we released Episode 25: Caged. Just Caged. I hope you all enjoyed Red's adventure through the Fuchsia Zoo. I had a blast playing around with this episode, having the section with the super computer and all. One of the biggest problems we faced with this episode was naming it. We could not think of a good name. Taco Man and I were talking about this for a good while. We wanted to include something about either cages or zoos. We kept running into the problem of spoiling the ending in the title. Here are some of the titles we came up with "Free Fuchsians", "Jail but not a Jail", "Freebird", "A Day with Cages", and I'll let Taco Man's final message about the name explain it all " How about...Caged. Just Caged. Or even better, "Caged. Just Caged" And that's how that name came to be.  Also in the beginning you may have noticed that Red didn't use his saw he got...whoopsies. This episode must have been written a long time after that one, but hey maybe he will remember he has one. One last thing I'll talk about regarding this episode is the character Erik...not the viking but NPC Red talked to. In the game, they did actually name him. I thought this was so bizarre, we had to include this in the episode. Anyway, if you have not listen to Episode 25, Caged. Just Caged I do recommend it as it is important to understand Episode 26.

Wait a second...did I just say Episode 26? Oh yeah I did! You can expect Episode 26 next week on the 24th! To prep you, here is a trailer.

Next, we have the silly question I asked last month which was Who would you ship? I gave my answer in the post, lets see what some of you have to say.

Ryan said "If you break the law, we break you. XD I would ship the man from the Pokemart and Misty just because both have HUGE anger issues. Lol." Now are you sure they wouldn't get into huge fights all the time and eventually break up? Thats my issue with your theory! BOOYAH Discredited!

B-rad said "01110010 01100101 01100100 01100100 01100101 01110010 01100101 01100100 01110010 01100101 01100101 01100101 01110010 01100100 01100101 00001101 00001010" Now being a totally hacker filled person I could totally translate this and totally not use a website to do it for me. Anyways it seems to say "redderedreeerde" Reminds me of Red's license.

Brian said "I'd have to go with red and the color yellow. Or maybe Lary and squirtle." I do agree Larry and squirtle are so meant for eachother. They are so similar in so many ways it is like theyre the same person!

Logananimeguy said "Definitely Pidgey and fishy they would make a lovely couple" I don't know, I'm still rooting for Squirtle and Pidgey.

So I hear you guys like bloopers! Have some for Episode 25

Here is March's question! How does Brock celebrate his St. Patrick's Day?

Be creative and I'll see you next month!

The Return of the Trailers

On the next phase of bringing Red Squirtle back to its golden days, I'll be bringing back trailers for new episodes. But before we go to that, lets review our two comments about Red's New Years Resolution.

Ryan said "To use Pidgey more often.......and take back his Magikarp so he can get a mega Gyarados(even though this is only 1st gen). I love that thing!" Red has a pidgey? Oh yeah! Almost forgot.

Mongo said "Red's new years resolution? To get better at avoiding Brock, because to be honest, he's pretty bad at it. Although when they meet it's hilarious, so I hope he fails to keep it." They do always seem to run into eachother.

That's all for January's question.  As the trailer implies, Expect the new episode sometime next week. For reasons I can't say, I'm glad we are returning to a schedule with these next few episodes. You will see in the coming episodes. Without further ado, here is our new trailer.




Look forward to that, and I believe this wraps up this month's post. So as for this months question...it is February and that has valentines day so let's ship Red Squirtle characters. Who would you ship? I would ship Squirtle and Pidgey. They have been showing some subtle love throughout the entire series and I think its about time to let that relationship flourish. Remember Episode 34 when Squirtle and Pidgey had that small alone time? That conversation sold me on them.

See you for the write up

We released an episode!

Well its more like we released two. But yes, officially I have everything Red Squirtle related in my possession, including our library of sound effects. I hope not too much is different from how it used to be. So let's do some write ups, shall we? Let's begin with Episode H: Recapisode. As the name implies, I wanted to recap our entire story line thus far. We recorded this at the same time as we recorded Anniversary, Take 4. My plan (back then) was to get everything Red Squirtle and release this and episode 24 in October...but I couldn't get my hands on all the Red Squirtle stuff until just a week or two ago. As for the editin process of Recapisode, it was just a lot of finding music and trying to level audio to match Episode 23's volume. I hope this episode helped you catch up to what was happening in the series, in case you forgot anything. The sole reason why I wrote the episode in the first place is because of our lack of releasing anything.
Shall we move onto Episode 24? Because that has got a story to it! In my long term plans for the series, this episode was never supposed to exist. Next I would have essentially done Episode 25 in Episode 24's place. Why does this seemingly useless episode even exist then? Well it happened one night when Taco Man, Master of Rock, Royce, and I were all hanging out. During the night, we dropped off Royce and Master of Rock at their friends house and Taco Man and I left. On his way to drop me off, we got stopped by a cop. He asked what we were doing that late at night and Taco Man explained that we just dropped off a friend and he immediately questioned why we weren't with them. It was then I realized we had to joke about this. So that's where the first half of the episode comes from, the next half we decided to appeal to those who tried to buy a video game once but was not old enough. After writing the segment about the cop, I had to continue the uselessness of the episode. The only major thing in this episode happened at the last minute. What could this plan be?
Shall we move onto last month's question? Okay! Red is making his own winter holiday. How would he have people decorate their houses?

Ryan said "With big statues of himself.....and possibly Squirtle(s)....outside. He'd also have everyone put up stockings filled to the top with Chocolate Dunkaroos." Ya know, I wouldn't mind that because I like Dunkaroos a lot

Mongo said "Squirtle ice beams the word "Holidayyyy..." on the side of everyone's houses" I could see Red caring for this for about 3 houses then getting cold and going back

Finally,  B-Rad said "Simple: everyone has to dress up in yellow for a day. Think of St. Patrick's day, but with yellow!" So would I get pinched or water gunned for not wearing yellow?

Before we end off this post, I have a present for you! Bloopers!!!!!! Here are the bloopers for Anniversary, Take 4, Recapisode, and Episode 24: Rated (R)ed. Enjoy
Now as for this month's question, it is 2014 now and so, What is Red's New Years Resolution?

See everyone next month

Merry Holiday!

Hello everyone, man I've been quiet lately. Sorry everyone, I've been busy with school and blah blah blah. You don't care much about that. Also I think X and Y took away from me updating the blog. On a side note I finished it. I hope you all enjoyed our impressions of X and Y. There are a few things we did forget to bring up. The music! The music, man! How could we forget? We all liked it. My favorite track was Lumious City. Master of Rock also wanted to do a small discussion about why he doesn't like that dragons got nerffed. Other than that I think we covered everything we wanted to say about the game. Now let's see what you all think of it.

Mongo said "Pokemon X and Y are two very good 3DS games. The graphics rock, even though the 3D isn't used much. The music is AMAZING. I seriously cannot express enough how great the music is (to me at least). I enjoy the rather even mix of the new and the old Pokemon, although I wish new pokemon popped up a tiny bit more than the old ones, but that's a small complaint. The Mega Evolution I think are a very nice addition to the series, as they are not too overpowered, but there is a power difference. Team Flare and their fabulosity are amazing. I also enjoy how they try to space gyms apart more (at least at the beginning) So you aren't at level 50 in the after-game and cant do much to level. Pokemon Amie is ok, not great not horrible. I have not gotten around to Super Training yet... Sky Battles were kinda ruined for me when EVERY TIME THEY USED EMOLGA, and they are few and far between. Roller Skates were phenomenal, i love the tricks and free range of movement, and the bike was awesome too (again, free movement). Diagonal walking was a great addition as well. Can't say too much about the story as I have not finished the game yet (trying to enjoy the game to the fullest!) PSS is nice too, eliminating Pokemon Center's additional floors and trading and battle can occur wherever. Customization is cool to, but seems like they could've done a better job with it had they spent more time on it. I enjoy riding on pokemon too, but i wish it was in the game more. Overall, it is a great game, and, in my opinion, the best Pokemon title to date.Phew that was a lot! If you read this all you deserve a cookie." Funny you should mention that you like Roller skates, I know a lot of people who think that is the worst part of the game. I liked them too.

Ryan said "Best generation by far. I love almost every single Pokemon introduced in it, the music is outstanding, I absolutely love the mega evolutions and Fairy type, I can final EV train SO much quicker and easier now, the PSS is a great addition allowing quicker ways of battling and trading, and you can help your friends out with O powers. The GTS and Wonder trade are nice and easy to use, Pokemonamie is a nice addition(I love how my Quagsire waves to me when it notices me), I love the new moves introduced in this gen, and I actually like team Flare. The roller skates are awesome, the friend safari makes catching rare Pokemon easier and allowed me to get a Greninja with Protean, and it's so cool to see everything finally have full 3 dimensional animations. My only complaint is having to wait until the end of December to get my Empoleon for my Water team, but that doesn't take anything away from the game......and I'm definitely buying the soundtrack when it comes out. Lol" On a side note. I beat him in a battle GO ME. But seriously, he got unlucky with that battle. I so didn't deserve to win.

B-Rad said " Pokemon X and Pokemon Y The newest pokemon games. they combine the best of the whole series, has beautiful visuals, classic music, and great new gameplay. As well as balancing the OP dragon type, they have now OP mega evolutions. I really enjoy this game! I can't wait to have my Mega Absol and Mega Blaziken destroy all other pokemon trainers everywhere. In short: Buy a 3DS, buy one of the games, and have some fun times. On a separate note, did i mention the FREAKIN MUSIC?" I don't believe you did mention the music.

Finally, Carl Wheezing "THE BEST POKEMON GAMES EVER!!!"...so wait is firegold working it's way into real life?

I regret to say that we will not have a holiday special this year, but perhaps you haven't heard what we did last year or many years ago. That's right we have two holiday specials. Also Firegold released their holiday special, that is worth checking out. Later this month I hope to have everything I need in order to pump out more episodes. Finally, let's have a question! Red is making his own winter holiday. How would he have people decorate their houses?

Have a great day,

Update!

Hello everyone Alex here to give you a little update on the current situation of Red Squirtle. First order of business, you may have noticed that the new anniversary episode is out. Well I edited that episode. We are officially announcing that I am the editor of Red Squirtle episodes. Once I get my hands on all the raw recordings, I can start pumping them out quicker. So after waiting months and months and months, episode 24 can finally come out this month (granted that the recording isn't lost). I also have anniversary bloopers coming out soon too. I hope you all enjoyed Anniversary 4. It has been a very fun and kinda slow series, but we are so happy that you all are sticking around for us. We also want to thank team firegold's PAPAYA for lending his vocal chords to us. Also later this month we will be giving you guys our Red Radio about the release of X and Y. We will tell the good, the bad, and the ugly. It will be honest critique, but I can say that we are all enjoying it. Lastly, lets look at the last question I asked which was What other food could become a pokemon? and this time we had a small  outcome let's look

Mongo said "A peppermint perhaps? Or a ground/grass carrot pokemon? What if they made a Rare Candy pokemon?? They have Voltorb/Amunguss so it kinda makes sense. Kinda. Not really." Is it bad I kinda like the idea of a peppermint pokefolk?

Ryan said "If they make another food based Pokémon, my guess would probably be a candy cane. I don't know why, but I feel like Nintendo would do something like that. It would be Ice/Fairy....and its weakness would be Munchlax" again, I like the idea of a minty fresh pokemon. I'm not sure why

B-rad said "Ah, the next food Pokemon would be a three evo with a mega evo. the first is a simple drop of water, i guess kinda like castform, then the 2nd evo is a glass plus the drop of water, so like magnamite, meets castform meets klank from b/w. The third evo combines the glass and water and glass to make a lone glass of water. Now for the Mega Evo. Glassofwater's mega evo would be silly but deal tons of damage. his mega evo transforms the small glass of water into a full blown water park complete with wave pool, slides, and a 5 star hotel. Boom i win the internet" If i could draw, i would draw this. You can pick up your internet tomorrow morning.

Other than that we are done for this month. As for the question...it wont be a question per say instead Tell me what you think of Pokemon X and Y. PAPAYA you are banned from this question if you decide to answer it. I know you opinion very well. Have a great October everyone and remember to be the chocolate dunkaroo on the 31st. G'day everyone

And alas, August is here

Hello everyone, Alex here once again to write a monthly thingy, I think it is called a blog post. Jokes aside, I hope you all have been enjoying Red Radio in our time of no Red Squirtle episodes. I do hate leaving you guys with no content at all, so this has been a good alternative. Also as a side note, Taco Man wants everyone to know that he is indeed not a racist, although I don't think anyone thought he was from his yoshi comments made in Red Radio 3. It wasn't serious at all. As for August, we do have another Red Radio planned later this month, as for episodes, we are not sure. Without further ado, I bring to you last months answers for What is Brock's favorite flavor of ice cream?

Mongo said "Rocky Road, he is the Master of Rock, after all." Rocky Road becomes a theme for other answers as well. I totally should have seen that coming

B-Rad said "Brock, being who he is, would not be satisfied with any normal type of ice cream, so he'd make his own: "Pizza Ice Cream" it would be red in color, due to his obsession with Red, and taste like pizza dough!" I don't think Brock is a fan of normal types at all (see what I did there?)

Logananimeguy said "Any Rocky Road if it was dyed with red food coloring" Ah, a twist of the Rocky Road answer

Ryan said "Sock flavored Ice cream topped with cocoa pebbles." This answer reminds me of the Harry Potter jelly beans, with such classic flavors as grass and vomit

finally Tolvan said "Rocky Road, of course. I like Logan's twist, though, so it'll have red velvet cookie dough in it as well." and I'll add chocolate shuckles filled with caramel

Other than that not much else to say about this month. I'll leave you all with a question What other food could become a pokemon? If you don't understand what I mean look up some of the new pokemon. Bye bye!
