Episode 117: It's A Whole New World!

A new region, new adventures, new opening theme for the podcast... new everything!  Welcome to Jhoto, ladies and gentlemen!  What sort of trouble with Ash and friends get up to in this region, what about the regional professor, does Team Rocket have a scheme going on?  (Yes, they always do...)  Tune in to find out!

And don't forget to check out PIRN radio, streaming Pokemon music 24/7, including the recent X and Y soundtrack!  Got a favorite one?


  1. Speaking of character development, we've been fortunate to see a whole lot of great development in recent seasons. Especially from Ash. Also, I've been watching some older episodes in Japanese (Not to mention X and Y every week <3 so goooood!!!) , and I didn't realize how much more intense the show is. Even in the openings, (Advanced Generation 4 to be exact) May appears severely depressed. I feel like the kids are dealing with rather adult things in their personal lives that the English version has no chance of portraying properly. I dislike how American culture shelters children from everything, because in Japan it seems like kids are more exposed and can develop better character at a younger age.

  2. Anne, if you are interested, you can find a lot of the Pokémon mangas, including some of the rarest ones, in this link:
