Episode 293: Shark Week!

Ash is derailed from his gym battle on Dewford Island yet again, but manages to find adventure on the briney seas.  The kids run into a group of sharks, have some questions that never get resolved, and give a nice callback to movie 5.  All in all, a fun episode!  Click here to listen!  

And Pokepress has videos up from Pokemon Worlds!  The competition, the atmosphere, the cosplay...!  All of it's fun, and you should check it out here!  Follow this link to their channel!

Special Episode: Meowth, You Got Some 'Splainin' To Do!

Meowth tries to build a statue in the center of a city, and also cosplays an "I Love Lucy" episode.  It's one of the weirder shorts, and I'm still trying to figure out where and when this episode takes place in the timeline.  Maybe it all exists in Meowth's head?  Whatever the case, you can click here to listen!

Also, Pokepress has a new video up unboxing the Pokemon Movie 20 soundtrack, M20 locations, and some discussion of music algorithms.  Wanna check it out?  You should follow this link to their channel!

Episode 292: Comic, But Not Relief!

We've talked a lot about Team Rocket gradually losing their relevance over the course of the show, if not their sense of FABULOUS.  And now, we're starting to enter a period in Pokemon history where Team Rocket loses both their status as the main villains and as comic relief.  From a literary standpoint, that's kind of a problem.  But not to worry, Team Rocket doesn't need to be important to a plot to be FABULOUS!
Also, Ash is a cranky little snot in this episode, PokeNavs don't help much within cities, Team Aqua reminds me of KAT-TUN and Pasta~!  Click here to listen or download!

Pandora doesn't know what's cool ;)
