A Journey Through Bootleg Pokémon Games

JonTron has made a career out of playing terrible games so you don't have to. Which is great, because how else were we going to sit through these awful, bootleg Pokémon titles and crack jokes? This is practically charity.


Spanning several Nintendo consoles and handhelds, there have been quite a few awful cash-ins on the Pokémon franchise over the years. I have to commend JonTron's patience in playing through them all, though, because I think I would have just quit at the Pac-Man/Pikachu crossover.
