SEASON 3GC BEGIN. In the first of four episodes covering 2004's Pokémon Colosseum, Josh & Tanner dive into their first impressions of the GameCube sleeper hit, differences from the main games, backstory of the characters in the game, as well as who they'll be playing as in this miniseries. Then, they get into the gritty details in this shadowy, post-apocalyptic land that is Orre. For the first leg, they learn a bit about the game's criminal syndicate (as Pokémon games are wont to do) and what they'll have to do to put them out of business: capture and purify a bunch of corrupted sweeties.
SEASON 3B FINALE. The boys/whatever Mr. Mime is are back in Pallet Town to rest after becoming Kanto Champions, when Professor Oak asks that they return to the Sevii Islands because the wifi is acting up again or something. To fix it, their old pal CELIOOOO! asks them to retrieve two gems to get it working again. What ensues is an island-hopping fetch quest across most of the archipelago, and culminating in yet another trouncing of some Team Rocket thugs. Finally, upon returning to the mainland, they take on the last catchable area in this Nuzlocke run—Cerulean Cave—before reflecting on their challenge. Notes: Next week we're starting "Season 3GC" where we'll be playing the GameCube releases Pokémon Colosseum and Gale of Darkness XD over 8-9 episodes. Grab your copies today, and join us for the ride either way!
Josh & Tanner are joined by their friend Anthony Smith to take on the Elite Four. But first, they get in another scuffle with their rivals and suffer a loss along the way. Once upon the Indigo Plateau, will the Elite Four be the only ones who suffer losses? Or will the Kill Count continue to pile up? Also, check out Tony's perfect tweets @AnthonyBLSmith! Notes: Midway through the episode we decided to save the rest of the Sevii Islands for next week's finale. The Nuzlocke "catchable areas" doc has been updated on the Twitter (@expsharepod) and subreddit (/r/bugcatchers).
With just one foot out the door of the Cinnabar Gym, a manic Bill whisks Joshua & Mr. Mime away to visit his friend Celio out in the Sevii Islands. Once there, they embark on the "railroadiest of railroads," a series of chained fetch quests that must be done before the islands open up and they can return to the mainland to take on the final Gym Leader.  First, the trainers must deliver a Meteorite to the islands' Game Corner, then take on a biker gang, rescue a lost child (aptly named "Lostelle"), climb a mountain, and get the islands' wifi booted up. Will all of their Pokémon survive the tropical trip, or will there be a sad sea shanty to sing? And will Giovanni finally put up a real fight?
Now with the ability to Surf, Joshua & Mr. Mime take a trip up to an abandoned Power Plant to try grabbing some exotic Electric Pokémon. They also decide whether to spare or end the lives of the Legendary Birds, as the next stop is the Seafoam Islands, where Articuno lurks its depths. After pushing boulders down a bunch of holes, they ride the waves to Cinnabar where they must explore the mysterious Pokémon Mansion to find a Secret Key that will allow them to battle the seventh Gym Leader, Blaine. Will they defeat him without losing any more of their precious 'mon? Or will Josh's prediction that someone will die in every episode hold true?
Josh & Tanner are joined once again by David Sims, aka Gringus, their eternal rival/friend (it's complicated), and host of Blank Check. In their longest journey together yet, they traverse the docks beneath Lavender Town, take on the menagerie of bird trainers there, get in a tussle with the Cue Balls and Bikers hanging out on Cycling Road, and find themselves in a resplendent Fuchsia City. There, they try their luck at Safari Zone—the best chance they have of catching some exotic 'mon before their final gym battles—and then flatten Koga like one of his disgusting Koffings. Notes: As always, check out @blankcheckpod, where David and his cohost Griffin are currently running through Robert Zemeckis's filmography (that's the Back to the Future dude!).
While out on the town, Joshua & Mr. Mime hear a rumor that the Celadon Game Corner is actually a criminal outfit. They investigate, and discover that the seedy underbelly of the city extends far beyond—to Lavender Town and Saffron City too. They set out to clean up the mean streets of Celadon, whereupon they receive the unimpressive Silph Scope. It reveals a new area where the trainers can catch a Pokémon—Pokémon Tower—in which they also confront their rival, who is apparently also on a Nuzlocke run because his Raticate died. Sad! With another arm of Team Rocket shut down, they return to Saffron to both cleanse the source of corruption at Silph Co. and face off against Gym Leader Sabrina. By the end of it, they'll need to rename Saffron City to "Crimson City" because its streets will run with Pokémon blood.
Get ready for some tear-jerking(ly off-key) power ballads. After a reprieve in the beautiful Vermilion, Joshua & Mr. Mime are forced to contend with Kanto's darkest depths in order to continue their journey forward, thanks to a blissed-out Snorlax. And given their environs, it should come as no surprise that their adventure takes a dark turn. In Diglett's Cave, Joshua loses a Pokémon he had grown unexpectedly fond of, and in the bowels of Rock Tunnel Mr. Mime experiences an unspeakable loss. When they finally emerge back into the daylight, will they knock Erika's lights out and earn their fourth badge?
After taking Misty out, Joshua & Mr. Mime try to take some time off on the Cerulean Cape and instead are faced with a rival battle, a bunch of bullies on Nugget Bridge, and that Lovecraftian freak Bill. They even have to step in to solve a crime for Officer Jenny. Once they finally make it to Vermilion City, they take a cruise on the S.S. Anne where the joy of receiving HM 01 Cut is cut short when Joshua loses a 'mon overboard. Then, the trainers chop their way into Lt. Surge's trash-filled gym and kick him to curb with the rest of it.
Joshua & Mr. Mime set out from Pewter City and are immediately ambushed by a research aide crazy about Running Shoes, for which they are thankful because they'll need 'em to run away from those freaky Shorts Guys all over Route 3. Mr. Mime suffers a loss, and Joshua finds a new companion who accompanies him along the journey through a new and improved Mt. Moon—now with water features! On the other side, the boy and... Pokéman find themselves kicking and punching with some pseudo karate kings before dipping their toes in the pool with Misty. Will they both make it out with no drowned Pokémon? Find out in the hot new segment, Kill Count.
Season 3B, baby! Josh & Tanner outline EXP. Share's official Nuzlocke rules we're abiding by as we go through a beautiful 16-bit Kanto. After covering the rules, we talk about the characters we're playing as this season, and then get back into the good stuff: Level Checks, Sweeties, Barfs, and more. When it's Nuzlocke, will we find ourselves in the Kanto we know and love? Or will we find ourselves in a world of hurt? Notes: Nuzlocke rules can be found on our @expsharepod social accounts as well as the Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/bugcatchers/comments/ik94yr/nuzlocke_run_house_rules_for_fireredleafgreen/
Looking for some spicy Hoenn action today? We have quite the surprise for you: we've spent the last month battling the very best guests from Season 3A, and a certain GringusD of our past. We've got three battles for ya: first against both Mike (StillJustMike) and Kevin (xRazeOvation) of @PokesportsPod, then Fionnuala Jones of @BandwagonsPod, and finally, season two brawler David Sims of @BlankCheckPod. Oh, and Josh & Tanner fight three times to see who's the season's supreme(on). Thanks to our guests for joining us as always, check out their shows below: Pokésports - https://open.spotify.com/show/4af21pBgHc9YlM9ThMfstP?si=o0T_UDiERXGtQNLnRbDRcA Bandwagons - https://open.spotify.com/show/1iRkm9c2ckj7LB5oeoJI9i?si=QJmgB2wvTPaC-3-7i5nr7w Blank Check - https://open.spotify.com/show/4zmVd1CGeUCxAAMwGAwsFD?si=T758VxrARoORZ2F_6PUzwQ
The 9-1-Huns return—vindicated—to Pokémon Square. Gengar tries to spew his fake news but Pelipper swoops in and clears Archonis's good name. He then embarks on a quest to solve the latest natural disaster: earthquakes caused by Groudon. After volunteering to take it on, Lombre says the team isn't high ranked enough (would love to see this ugly chinned idiot's Rank Check), and Team ACT goes instead. Nights pass without a word, and the 9-1-Huns have to save everyone again. Which, apparently, also means stopping a giant meteor from crashing into the Pokéarth and killing everyone because this game's story doesn't know when to quit. But we certainly do, because this is the last ep of the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon miniseries and we're never playing again! Notes: Featuring "Jesus Take the Wheel (Instrumental)" by Carrie Underwood / InstrumentalPraise (YouTube).
The fugitive Pokémon continue their run from the long spoon of the law (Alakazam, is the joke here). The Mon Men run into some trouble on the path to Mt. Blaze, while the 9-1-Huns have to scale it a few times before they finally put down its master, that dumb flaming chicken Moltres. They then stumble into the Frosty Forest, where they have a surprising revelation that takes this bonkers plot to a whole other level—only to be resolved by speaking with the 'mon himself: Ninetales. Notes: Featuring "Independence Day" by KaraFun (YouTube).
The 9-1-Huns and The Mon Men continue rescuing Pokémon in need until they stumble upon yet another troubling development in this convoluted plot. After the first boss fight with a Zapdos, a farseeing Xatu in the "Hill of the Ancients" reveals that Archonis and Jon Meowth definitely ARE human, and are NOT dancer (or Stantler). Unfortunately, this conversation is overheard by the dastardly Gengar, and that's not going to be good for anybody. Pokémon Square turns against the rescuers, and they grab their Oran Berries and get the hell out. But who will rescue the Rescue Team?
Part one of our four-part miniseries playing 2006's Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team, or Blue Rescue Team on DS if ya fancy. We start our adventure by waking up in a strange, small forest, and we're apparently a human who turned into a Pokémon... mysteriously. We talk about the game's history, mechanics, and our opinions of it so far, before getting into our "starters," partner Pokémon, and the plot itself. We've also got some saucy new segments tailored to PMD for you.
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).
