Get your pinballs ready for Pokemon Pinball: Ruby and Sapphire!

Tonight, on the Stevetendo show, we’re finally going to celebrate the newest generation of Pokémon, Scarlet and Violet, releasing this week. We’re taking things in a different direction by playing a Pokémon game you might not ever remember exists. That being said, we’re playing Pokémon Pinball: Ruby and Sapphire for the Game Boy Advance on the Wii U. This game allows the player to catch Pokémon from the Hoenn region by playing pinball.

The 3rd generation of Pokémon added gameplay mechanics to the games like Pokémon abilities for example. The Pokémon games on the GBA could be seen as the first time Pokémon tried to change the way the games were played. It’s interesting to think this way since Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are trying to take the series in a whole new direction as well. Set to go live at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET, find out if I can become a pinball wizard and Pokémon master!

Catch as many Pokemon as you can! Just don't tilt the table!

Shackers who want to join in on the fun can head over to the Shacknews Twitch channel, where you can tune into the Stevetendo show every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. 

If you can't make tonight's show, you can watch Monday nights at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET. Stay tuned for more of our Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask playthrough as well as even more great games!

If you want to support the Shacknews Twitch channel with more than just watching the great programming, then I suggest you subscribe with Prime Gaming. It’s simple, painless, and best of all, it’s free. Subscribing allows you to support all the great Shacknews Twitch shows, not just the Stevetendo show! Join in the fun as we try to complete these great video games and talk some sports. If you've watched the Stevetendo show, you know we check the scores during the livestream. I would love to talk Jets, Devils, and Mets all night but that’s only a portion of what you come to the show to see.

Keep thinking of those viewer suggested games for me to play on the show. Nintendo is taking their time adding games to the Nintendo Switch Online so we’ll have to play something prior. If they decide to add Mega Man X games, fingers crossed they’ll skip the third game in the series, as it’s terrible. I thought Mega Man 7 and 11 were my least favorite Mega Man games but X3 may have pulled ahead of them.

The Stevetendo show isn't the only great show the Shacknews Twitch channel has! Make sure to check out the Shacknews Livestream schedule every week to see what other great entertainment the Shacknews family has to offer!
