Over the weekend, Mr Shudo was found to have collapsed at a train station in Nara City and was rushed to hospital. He was pronounced dead soon after, suffering from a subarchnoid hemorrhage.

*Poké-bawling my eyes out* GW tries using Resurrection. It isn't super effective :( Rest in peace you Pokémon patriarch, you.

Thanks to Staticwolf, Braden and ShadowSushi, who all took the day off work to watch old episodes and eat cereal. It's like a sad Saturday morning.
