IN THE YEAR 2019!!!
We had plenty of great podcasts to listen to! From the table top to around the table! Pokemon fans of all kinds came together around a microphone to talk about Pokemon! Some of them decided to just have fun playing Pokemon while others talked about Pokemon! In the end, we listen to these amazing Pokemon fans have fun producing a podcast about Pokemon! And there is a whole years worth to listen to!
So we decided to reach out to these amazing Podcast creators and ask them what was their favorite episode from 2019! Some of them even have some cool things to say about their favorite pick! So lets take a listen back at what amazing Podcasts we had the honor to listen to in 2019!
General Pokemon Podcasts
|Luke Loves Pokemon: Jynx and Family |
Luke: “I still think Jynx is my best episode this year. Other ones may have been more passionate or better edited, and the Gen 8 stuff has been exciting, but I feel like we actually did a difficult subject something close to justice, so I feel proud of the work there. Also, its kind of Christmas themed?”
|My Favorite Pokemon: Shannon and Quagsire |
Janine: “While many of our friends have been very old fans of Pokemon that are very in tune to all the games, Shannon has been a casual fan with a deep love for a Pokemon from afar. That’s the kind of fan we want to highlight and show that their engagement is just as valid as the 1990’s veterans. Pokemon is for everyone and every Pokemon is somebody’s favorite Pokemon.”
|I Chews You: Gen 1 Finale|
PXRMikey: It was a toss up between this one or the Best of Episode. In the end, it was best to suggest the potluck of different Pokemon! That way each ICY Host Chef could show off their unique talents in cooking while serving up a helping of great laughs.
|After Darkrai: Pokemon Go Radio Cuboned Us|
Bert: “Our episode #104 Pokemon Go Radio Cuboned Us is our most listened to episodes. Bret and Hannah welcome the PGR bros SALT and Nar to talk about all things Pokemon Go, the sad, sad Cubone line and much more.”
|Victory Road: “Let’s Celebrate the Middle Children!”|
Doug: “Our adventures on Victory Road take us all over. Sometimes we’re talking news — other times we’re exploring the spooky side of Pokemon or simulating a Royal Rumble. “Let’s Celebrate the Middle Children” is a perfect example! Why not give love to the ‘mons who don’t always get it?”
|Gotta Watch’em All Podcast: Friend and Foe Alike!|
Ken: “This was an important one as we saw Ash take a major defeat at the hands of Richie. We learn how much Ash has matured through his journey so far.”
|Poke Press: Poke Press: Live Pokemon Music Discussion”|
PXRMikey: One thing that you can always depend from PokePress is learning something new about Pokemon. In this case it is some live preformances involving the Pokemon franchise. Most people know about Pokemon Live musical but many may not know about the live performances from Australia. That was pretty cool.
|Soundproof Podcast: Farewell Ultra Series! |
Brandon and Jake: “This was an idea we had been sitting on for a few months and it really showcases our MO of bringing on an expert for a certain topic, plus it’s a pretty cool recap of the format we’ve been playing for the better part of a year.”
Pokemon GO Podcasts
|Lured Up Podcast: Community with Liz George from Niantic|
Ken: “This was an important episode as it was the first media appearance by the Niantic Global Community Manager for Pokémon GO, Liz George.”
Table Top Podcasts
|Postcards from Pearl: My Guardian Shrangel|
Jonah: “So it’s tough – it might be ep 11 – Love Hurts, but that definitely requires some more context from the rest of Save the Combees! 😅🐝. The best stand-alone ep might be ep 16 – My Guardian Shrangel! Also merry Christmas!!!”
|Adventures in the Millennium: The Battle of Pal Park Peninsula|
Tanner: “(This episode), It was our biggest fight at that point and everyone got something to do. Also, Pirates.”
|Critical Ditto: Rain Dance #1|
Critical Ditto Crew: “We launched in June, so the last 6 months have been the first of our Podcast. Looking back I’m so happy with how we introduce our gang and set up some really important things about the world straight out of the gate (The Church of SlaSlo came out of absolutely nowhere)!It’s always tricky getting started with a new story, but (hopefully) we set up some really interesting world aspects, characters and relationships that have launched us into an exciting world of possibilities.
Episode 1 lays the foundation for the epic fights, goofy fun and character interactions that follow it. You always remember where you start out, and Ep 1 will hold the same sentimental value for me going forward as any Pallet Town, Twinleaf Town, Littleroot, Postwick etc.”
|Pokemon Seicho: King of Ghosts|
Pokemon Seicho Gang: “(Any of)…Season 3, the newest episodes. I think the 30 min episodes really give it that anime feel.”
PXRMikey: The thirty minute format has really made this podcast fun to watch! It sticks true to the podcast’s idea of feeling like an anime while also making the episodes easy and quick to listen.
I hope you all enjoy this little walk down memory lane for the year 2019. We featured as many podcast as we can. Some of your favorite podcasts didn’t make it into the article due to deadlines and the holiday season. Either way, they too have many amazing podcast episodes in 2019! So make sure to give them a listen as you go into the new year.
