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.
SEASON THREE FINALE. Minnie Max & RHCP visit Ever Grande "City" and delve into the treacherous Victory Road, where weirdly the biggest threat is Wally. On the other side, they make their final preparations before taking on Hoenn's Elite Four: a festive crew with a lot of wild outfits and some fearsome 'mon. Following their enshrinement in the Hall of Fame, the new Champions once again take to the sea to visit the Battle Tower, scale the Sky Pillar—and, ultimately, to face the music and each other to determine who's the very best in the region. Notes: Featuring "Californication" by CC Karaoke (YouTube).

It's our first-ever "Chasing Waterfalls" episode where we use Waterfall (and the full HM slate) to take care of some unfinished business around Hoenn. First, Minnie Max & RHCP visit the tropical retirement community of Pacifidlog Town, attempt to find Mirage Island, and then Surf the rough waters of Routes 132-134. We take a Dive in a mysterious blue hole and end up in an ancient cavern and through a couple of... different processes, figure out how to access its secrets, releasing the "Legendary Titans" into the world. Then, we catch the dang things and close with a couple more sidequests.

What is this, Waterworld? Minnie Max & RHCP spend days at sea and honestly neither of them knows how they end up in the Seafloor Cavern, where they duel with Team Aqua Admin Shelley & Team Magma Admin Courtney, who both have a lot of uh, fans, on the Internet. That's right: Fur Affinity Check is back because we're journalists and we have to report what we see. After admiring these fine Pokémon smut artists' work, Josh & Tanner dive back in and find that the Admins have released Groudon & Kyogre, so they again swim around for lord knows how long until finding Sootopolis City and its mysterious Cave of Origin. There, they face off with the two legendaries before taking on the eighth and final Gym Leader, Wallace. Notes: Featuring a lot of outdated pop culture references, as well as those to raunchy Pokémon art that your kids probably shouldn't hear. (Should they hear this podcast at all though?)

The trainers venture into Hoenn's own Safari Zone, which seems to have bought all of Kanto's Pokémon but is an inferior experience. Looking for more thrills, they stroll Lilycove and run into streets full of Aqua & Magma grunts that they trace back to Mt. Pyre. There, they—again, two children—are entrusted with a life-preserving orb, which they take to Slateport to learn about "Captain" Stern's latest discovery. During his press conference, Team Aqua/Magma makes off with the sub and they follow it to their hideout in Lilycove. After shutting down that operation, they take a trip to sunny Mossdeep, and take on its freaky brother-sister duo Gym Leaders. Notes: Featuring "Someone Like You (Karaoke Version)" by EdKara (YouTube).

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.
