Team Skull Takes PAX South

Episode 62: the sultry sixty-second episode of the PokeProblemsPodcast! Today we cover some news and Miz Sylver talks PAX South! First, the news:
  • You can now get Mewnium Z in Pokemon Sun and Moon by using the online Pokemon Bank. You have until October, but do it sooner rather than later.
  • There's a new Global Mission in Pokemon Sun and Moon! This one is to trade 1 million Pokemon using the Global Trade Station. The reward is for Festival Coins, but you can also get a Friend Ball if 2 million Pokemon are traded! This mission ends February 14th.
  • Roxy's Grilled Cheese has opened up a barcade in Central Square in Cambridge. They opened last weekend, and friend of the podcast Ricario visited. What if we have a meet-up there some time soon?
  • This year is Final Fantasy's 30th anniversary! Whoa! They are releasing a bunch of different products in honor of the anniversary, including deluxe wine glasses and wine. Special Cup Noodle ramen with different art for each game are available! There's a really cool Final Fantasy fork-sword prize that you can win by buying those Cup Noodles, but trust the Wolf Doctor when she says that it's very easy to get a toaster oven stuck on your Buster Sword. Final Fantasy is also getting the Escape Room treatment. In the show, we say it's Japan-only, but they just announced after we recorded that it will also be coming to the US!
  • Speaking of Escape Rooms, iam8bit is bringing their Resident Evil Escape Room to Boston February 22 - March 19. There are still tickets! Still tickets! They are starting to get sold out on the weekends, but you can still go! We are going to go!
  • And in podcast news, /r/Nintendo is gonna have a podcast! The first episode will go up February 7th, and you can enter to be on the show now!
  • And of course, PAX East, we are still having our panel "Podcasting: from Amateur to Pro-Caster" on Saturday March 11th at 8pm.
And then, Miz Sylver tells us about the awesomeness of PAX South. First off, Miz Sylver loved San Antonio. Shout out to of for recommending the awesome restaurant Mi Tierra, for letting Miz Sylver play Kung Fu Shadow Fist, and for introducing us to . Miz Sylver met lots of awesome people, including an Omeganaut (listen to our interview with an Omeganaut, Lisa!), Team Skull, and David Erick Ramos. She tried a lot of cool games including Fist of Physics, Has-Been Heroes, Resident Evil 7 Forsaken Castle, and Streets of Rogue. Her Family Feud StreetPass Game Show was awesome, look for it at PAX East! And we use it as our inspiration for the question of the week:
