The Johto Quorum – 252-272

We have fun on this show. Pokemon are wonderful, and even when we cut them, we usually have a fondness for them anyway. This show is a celebration of pokemon. But. Ludicolo is not okay. And whoever designed it needs to apologize. To the world. To us. We’re in the Hoenn dex now, and at …

The Johto Quorum – The Molly Movie

A scattered dream that’s like a far-off memory. A far-off memory that’s like a scattered dream. Despite our distance, you are mama. Six and Allen tackle the strange but charming third Pokemon movie, and learn what it truly means to have family. …Ok, that is super not true. But we had a good time, and …

The Johto Quorum – Detective Pikachu

Let’s set the pokedex aside again, and imagine a world where Ryan Reynolds is popular. Why is he popular? I mean, he’s kinda cute. He’s got an okay voice. But he honestly hasn’t been in that many movies, and definitely not many good movies. I don’t get it. I don’t have a beef or anything …

The Johto Quorum – 211-225

It’s easy to forget about the late-middle of any pokedex, and this week the Quorum runs into a lot of monsters they haven’t thought about in a long time. Qwilfish and Octillery, the constant letdown of shinies, and the bug pokemon that moves three times faster than an ordinary bug… don’t miss this week’s assembly. …

The Johto Quorum – The Cities of Johto

After many complaints along official channels from the cities of Kanto, claiming that it was “demeaning” for us to rank them by quality, we decided to spare Johto’s cities the shame of a ranking. But, they still need the Quorum’s assistance: that much is inarguable. And so, Six, Allen, and guest Kat are here to …

The Johto Quorum – 183-201

It has never been more apparent that the idea of a “quorum” is flexible: the minimum number of members for an assembly varies. This episode starts out with just Six and Allen, but when the debate breaks down, they need to call in help, in the form of returning guest Ryan. What on EARTH do …

The Johto Quorum – 152-182

It’s into the region we’re named for that we now head. Gold, Silver, and Crystal’s menagerie awaits judgment, and they may be certain that it’s on its way. Will we kill Cyndaquil? Is it see you later, Feraligatr? And what of the babies? We’re really in the weeds now, y’all. Our podcast art is done …
