Lured Up - A Pokémon GO Podcast

Jul 30, 2019

We are joined this week by Jan Ochoa! Video producer and Podcast host from Giant Bomb! We discuss his transition from the entertainment to gaming industries, how Pokémon fits into big games media, and his slow descent into the madness of the TCG! Make sure you check out his work over at and listen to him rep Pokémon on the Giant Bombcast every Tuesday!

After the break we break down the amazing Team GO Rocket campaign that Niantic put together, combining IRL events, assets, and marketing which all lead to a countdown stream that climaxed with the most epic trolling of all time.  Giovanni will pay for this!
