I try my best to get people just as excited about collecting Pokémon cards as I do. The feeling of when you pull an ultra rare card is like no other. At the end of the day a lot of YouTube is a lot of luck.
Is there a big Pokémon community currently on YouTube?
I feel like it used to be small back when I started making videos but now I see hundreds of people join it everyday. It’s so crazy seeing how many other people share your passion.
What type of videos do you think are the most popular on your channel?
The videos that do well are ones that people can join in on. My Mail Man Monday series is one where people can send in letters and packages and I will read them out on camera. The show is over 100 episodes strong and still rocking. Now, the whole post office knows me as ‘the guy who gets too much mail’!

Do you think non-Pokémon fans view your videos?
For sure. I often have people tell me on the street or at parties that they have no idea what I am talking about, but they love to spend an afternoon watching my videos.
Will you be featuring Pokémon Go on your channel when it launches, and if so, do you already have some ideas in mind?
I think so. I’m keen to get some more information on the game first before I commit to anything, but fans tweet me everyday with weird and wacky ideas for what series I should do.
What are your plans for the future?
With Christmas around the corner I’m planning to host the biggest Pokémon-related giveaway possible! [I’m] very excited for people to join in on that and to see the reaction when they find out.
