Two longtime friends and Pokémon fans play every generation of Pokémon game, gym by gym. Currently on Ruby & Sapphire. Hosted by Josh Fjelstad and Tanner Greenring. New episodes every Tuesday.
Minnie Max and RHCP are joined by Bug Catcher FJ, aka Fionnuala Jones, host of the Bandwagons podcast. The trio takes to the sea: Tanner much, much more than the other two. Once on the other side of Route 118, they encounter some trainers with big cult energy, a big cutie Pokémon, and a big mess at the Weather Institute. After cleaning it up, they set out to defeat Fortree City's Winona, but run into some unforeseen barriers first. Devon Corporation's newest product saves them, and they stack it up against Silph Co.'s offerings before a fight breaks out: Will Josh reclaim the crown of EXP. Share champion? And who will prevail between EXP. Share: A Pokémon Podcast and Bandwagons: Not A Pokémon Podcast?! Notes: Check out Bandwagons wherever you catch your podcasts, and give 'em a follow @bandwagonspod! Featuring "Under the Bridge" by Red Hot Chili Peppers.

After last week's long journey and battles, Minnie Max & RHCP get a little reprieve. Using their new Go-Goggles, they traverse Route 111's desert and find some mysteries in its sands, returning with them to Rustboro City to give Devon Corp. one last chance to prove its scientists are worth their mettle. With Petalburg just down the road, they set off to prove to Norman that they don't have daddy issues at all and HE'S the one being immature, Dad! They take issue with his gym layout, but lay him out along with the rest of the Normal type trainers and receive HM 03 Surf as a reward. With that, they set off for a strange sidequest on another shore. Notes: Featuring "I Believe I Can Fly (Karaoke Version)" by Let's Sing! (YouTube).

For our longest episode and most guests ever, hosts of Pokésports Mike & Kevin join Josh & Tanner for the journey—and boy, was it one. The routes were endless, the sweeties and gross 'mons plentiful, so we have double the segments. We weigh in controversial discussions, such as Spoink & Grumpig (cuties, or best as bacon?); the credibility of Team Magma & Aqua's dastardly schemes; and how pretty much everyone hates Pokémon contests. Then, each show team goes head to head against each other and then the shows themselves... who will be the mid-game champions? Notes: Thanks to @PokesportsPod for joining us! Check out their coverage of the competitive Pokémon scene (including an interview with us) wherever you catch your podcasts.

Mr. Briney takes Minnie Max & RHCP to Slateport City, where they find a whole lot of nothing to do. The flea market or whatever offers nothing. The Contest Hall says they're unqualified. The Oceanic Museum is packed to the gills. They finally get a dockworker to talk at the harbor, and find "Captain" Stern, who isn't really even a captain. Looking for a gym leader to crush, they head north and run into a bunch of neer-do-wells on Route 110, but are rewarded with some wheels and a real good fight with Gym Leader Wattson. Josh struggles with the current members of RHCP and considers changing the lineup.

Minnie Max & RHCP attempt to head east but run into trouble in Rusturf Tunnel—and a lovers' quarrel. Fortunately they make a new friend along the way, and hitch a ride down Dewford Town way. Once there, they meet a number of hipster freaks who are starving for goss and the latest trends from the mainland. After they spill the tea, they spill Gym Leader Brawly's guts all over his gym floor. Then, they hit the floors of Granite Cave, searching for a mysterious "Steven." Notes: Featuring "Suck My Kiss" by Red Hot Chili Peppers.
