Villains 2: “I Made Alotta’ Lists!”

Hello everyone!

We’re back with a brand new rap. This week we are doing a caaaall-back sequel. This one is a shout-out to our third episode – which, if you don’t remember, was devoted to discussing villains.

In the first episode, we discussed mostly singular villains; iconic figures like The Joker and Sephiroth. This week we are focusing on villainous organizations using the lens of the Pokemon franchise. The villains in the Pokemon games have always been presented as “Teams” and in the most recent games (Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon), those teams team-up.

Thanks to this helpful in-game compare/contrast, we are able to see very clearly what works and what doesn’t when it comes to make effective evil organizations. Things are so clear that Daniel made lists.

We also get around to some recommendations:

This week you should watch Made in Abyss

This week you should read All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders
