With just days to go until the release of Pokemon Sun & Moon, some of the last things to reveal are being unveiled by the Pokemon company. We officially get the final starter evolution as well as their names, and we find that old friends have returned all grown up. And if you read some of the fandom, very very grown up. Pokemon Go continues to receive updates too, turns out there was a Halloween event after all! And daily bonuses make their way into the game!

The highly anticipated demo to Pokemon Sun & Moon is out, and Shane and Rob have both given it a playthru, and share some thoughts on the demo! Also, could it be true that Pokemon Go is getting a halloween event? Our hosts sadly theorize probably not. However, plenty of information has come out on Sun & Moon thanks to data mining in the demo! (We give ample spoiler warning before getting into any data mined information)

A new trailer for Pokemon Sun & Moon was released this week, and the evolutions to the starter Pokemon have caused some extremely divided and even controversial feedback. We tackle the latest trailer and give our opinions. Also, Pokemon Go has some updates planned for gyms, that could really change that part of the game. And, although convention season has slowed down some of our episode tapings, but it hasn't slowed down Shane from catching shinies! We check in with him on how his shiny hunt is progressing, and Rob hits a landmark in Pokemon Go! Tweets, e-mails and more fill out another episode of the Pokestop Podcast!

A controversial update to Pokemon Go removes "step" tracking, while Niantic shut down third party "radar" websites like Pokevision.

An update to the official Sun and Moon website unveils details on 6 new Pokemon (including localization of two previously revealed Pokemon). A friend of Shane's, Danny, joins us on the show to talk about these six new Pokemon, as well as share some memories and stories of playing older Pokemon games like Pokemon Red/Blue. Pokemon Go fever is still everywhere, and some businesses have used the game to see huge successes. However, one local neighborhood to where we live is getting fed up with all the cars cruising thru looking for Dratinis. Can or should Niantic move these Pokemon elsewhere?
