Rhythm Encounter 096 Pokemon

It’s 2022 and 10-year-old Ash Ketchum has finally won a Pokémon Championship after 25 years. Don’t think about the math too much, or you’ll end up feeling the need to Go Home and Sleep. Instead, we recommend listening to a lineup of great Pokémon music, and today’s panelists have you covered! From way back in the days of Pokémon Gold & Silver all the way to an arrangement just released for the current events in Pokémon Masters EX, we’ve got you covered. Gather your best team and enjoy a peek into the soundtrack of a Pokémon Trainer.

Featuring: Mike Salbato, Gio Castillo, Niki Fakhoori, Patrick Gann, Mario Garcia; Edited by Jono Logan
