Episode 41: Sleeping In...zzz

There's only one more sleep 'till Christmas!  Whatever holiday you celebrate, I hope you get some time to relax, catch some 'Z's... Snorlax doesn't need a holiday, it can sleep whenever it wants... which is kind of the problem.  What's your fool-proof wake-up technique?  HAPPY HOLIDAYS, EVERYONE! :)

"On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me... Twelve Nurse Joys..."

Episode 40: Christmas Eve Eevee!

It's Christmas Eve Eve... well, I think we all know this episode's going up late.  Still, for the Eve celebration, here's and Eevee!  What would you evolve your Eevee into?  Would you keep is as it was?  What are those brothers going to do when they realize there are more than three Eevee evolutions?  Adopt a few siblings?
"On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me... Eleven Charging Tauros..."

Episode 39: Admit It, You Cried.

It seems, somehow, someway, we have to say goodbye to a very dear friend... or do we?  It's an episode we all remember, and one that probably inspired some pretty big reactions.  Feel free to write in about those reactions:  Where are all the Pichu?  Would we have had this episode if not for the seizure incident?  Did this episode make you cry as a child? (guilty) 

"On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me... Ten squinty-eyed children..."

Special Episode 2: Climb Every Mountain!

Ash fancies himself a mountain climber, but, well, the weather takes a really bad turn.  How good are this team's survival skills.  Gosh, I hope nobody gets separated... Ah, Jynx-ed it... Can they face the cold, and can Ash get any of his pokemon to listen to him?  Find out, on our Ninth day of Christmas!
Also, I've updated the map! Stupid North Pole, screwed everything up...
"On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me... Nine Officer Jennies..."

Special Episode 1: Yes, Virginia, there is a Jynx... (AKA, How Team Rocket Stole Christmas!)

A couple seizures, and everything goes haywire... This episode was aired out of order, and I have decided to treat it like a special episode.  Tune in to listen to a holiday episode, while the twerps do some serious off-roading.  Let's go see Santa!
"On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me... Eight Gym Badges..."

Episode 38: Akihabara@Pokemon

So, apparently humans can be transferred through the PC, guys.  Who knew?  Anyone in your life you want to trade?  Store away in software?  Could this happen if Bill and Dr. Akihabara had used macs?  Your call, here on Pikapi Podcast!
"On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me... Seven Frontier Brains..."
Also, the news clips on Youtube about the Porygon incident

Episode 37: Imitators and Posers!

I've always thought Ash was one of a kind, but, well, everyone's got a twin somewhere.  No, not Ritchie, there's another Ash-clone running around.  Is imitation really the best form of flattery?  Tune in to meet Duplica and her Ditto!
"On the Sixth Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me... Six Loyal Girlfriends!"

Episode 36: Little Jimmy Rides Again

Bicycle gangs?  Jessie and James as hardcore bikers with training wheels?  (Hey, at least this isn't Yugioh, they had a gang that beat people up with yo-yos...)  Can Ash ride through the storm, fly over the drawbridge and deliver the medicine?  Why was there no E.T. parody shot during that scene?  Listen in, to the fifth day of Christmas!

"On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me... Five Crime Syndicates..."

Episode 35: Gun Control

Another banned episode!  The Safari Zone is a dangerous place.  Granted, I'm sure we all have one or two kids in our lives who sing badly and get on our nerves... What do you think of The Ledgend of Dratini?  Love?  Hate?  Somewhere in between?  Write in and let everyone know!
"On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me... Four Elite Trainers..."

Episode 34: Tarzan Has Arrived!

Still, still not quite in the Safari Zone, but getting a lot closer!  A rather strange episode this week, anyone know what happened?  Is is a parody?  A ploy for ratings?  Undiscovered gas leak in the writer's room?  It's your call, listen in and meet Tomo and his crazy parents!
"On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me... Three Legendary Beasts..."

Episode 33: Flames of Fury!

Time for the big race, since we're lost around the Safari Zone and have nothing better to do.  As far as races go, it's kind of a free-for-all, but still, someone manages to cheat.  Can Ash ride Ponyta and save the day?  Listen and find out, or, visit the Pokemon with U site to learn about the work they're doing in the Tohoku region!
So, it seems I accidentally posted the Koga episode twice... this is what happens when we rush... it should be fine now!
On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me... Two Rocket Grunts...

Episode 32: Way of the Ninja

"On the first day of Christmas..." We're getting into the holiday spirit here, starting off a twelve episode marathon to go along with the twelve days of Christmas!  Today:  Ash goes for his sixth gym battle against Koga, a ninja.  How will that pan out?  What does Psyduck have to do with this?  Has anyone ever died in Koga's crazy trick house?  Enjoy!
Ack! Here's the link to Herman Cain's inspirational Pokemon quoting!

Now, "On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...One Angry Legendary..."

Episode 17: Swiss Family Pokemon

So, I'm borrowing my friends' microphone until I can get a new one, which saves the podcast but limits us to one episode a week.  I can live with that, hopefully you can, too.  There is a slight quality difference, but it's still an improvement over last episode.
The Pokemon are separated from their trainers!  Have they been abandoned?  Will Ash find them again?  What's with the native inhabitants?  Click the title to listen and find out, or click here for show notes!

Notice!

So, the recording issues that plauged us earlier are not going away, and are making it impossible to record this podcast.  Thus, we shall take a few days off to look into getting it fixed, and resume Sunday with a clean, non-glitchy podcast.  It's a bit of a shame, since we ended on a bit of a cliffhanger, but c'est la vie, right?
Sorry for the delay, and I'll see you all Sunday!

Episode 16: And the Fail Marches On!

Your lovely host has been replaced by a man?! What?! No, it's not a new host, just recording difficulties.  Even after editing and a second shot at recording, (which actually made it worse) I decided to give up.  This is your podcast, folks.  Like the show we're following, sometimes it can be made of utter, complete, dismal fail.
But it's also packed with win, which is why we keep watching.  So, tune in to hear and try to decipher how Ash and co. escape their watery fate, Pikachu's hidden nasty side, Misty's near trekkie-like devotion to the St. Anne, and how Magicarp gets the last word.  Who would you choose to be stuck on a sinking ship with?  Click here for show notes!

Episode 15: Titanic Alert!

Still here, a little less loopy but just as geeky!  Today, our heroes take a luxury cruise.  How could they afford this?  What sorts of people will they meet?  Can Ash bear to part with Butterfree?  If a piece of a pokemon breaks off in battle, does it get called back by the pokeball as well?  Questions, questions...

Episode 8: Whipped into shape!

Show Notes:


And Aj puts an end to Ash's winning streak.

Tengu noses inspire completely unrelated J-pop commentary.


"Your pokemon abandoned you".  Does Ash ever use such an insult again?


The worst of Ash's ego goes down in this episode, maybe.


Ash loves Pikachu.  Pikachu tolerates Ash.  There's a difference.

So, for the first time in, like, ever, VideoJug is giving me problems and Blogger is not.  Therefore, Pikapi Blog will be updated first, and the Videojug page will have to wait until the site gets the kinks worked out...
