GC: What have you been watching? It’s going to be Downton Abbey, isn’t it?
SO: Monty Python! [laughs] I’m particularly fond of puns. Not just in preparation for this game but even in the past I’ve watched a lot of UK programmes and pun-heavy humour.
GC: And just finally, given the graphics are now so much better, I’m sure every pokéfan has thought about this but I ask this seriously: would you really want to live in the Pokémon world if it was real? On the one hand it’d be great because you can have Pikachu as a pal but on the other you’ve got spiders the size of coffee tables and ghosts that are real.
Both: [a lot of laughing and talking between each other] JM: [laughs] It’s sure to be a good thing because pokémon, really, are all friendly. So if they actually existed they definitely wouldn’t try and destroy the world or anything.
