Riley texted the group chat for all the TOG podcasters and said “who up” and sent us a bracket of 800+ Pokémon. Then we hit record. In this initial episode, Riley, Marn, Andrew, Jo, and Wheels sit down and talk about round bats, shifty trees, dirt eating bugs, and haunted doll monkeys.

Champs in the Making started on The Orange Groves Podcast Network’s Patreon as a show where TOG hosts check in whenever they can to argue about Pokémon designs. Which pocket monster will be the very best when it’s all over? You can listen to episodes early by supporting the network at $10+ and this public feed is updated on the 1st and 15th of the month!
