Pokémon Go developer Tim Nguyen talks strange Pokémon facts and rumours
In the latest episode of the One More Life podcast!
What's the densest Pokémon? Which Pokémon would save you if you were lost in the mountains? Do Pokémon wear clothes? And what do people eat in the Pokémon world?
All these questions, and many more besides, are discussed in this week's episode of the One More Life gaming podcast. This week's guest is Pokémon Go developer Tim Nguyen.
Nguyen has had a fascinating career journey, starting out as a swimming coach before going on to become one of the key developers on one of the biggest games in the world.
In the interview, Nguyen explains how he became the Senior Producer on Pokémon Go, and what exactly it takes to keep a massive game like this running.
