Pretty much the best Pokemon podcast of all time

I listen to this podcast on my work Mac and my personal iPhone (Weird flex but Ok) It is pretty great honestly and I enjoy it every week. Keep up the great work everyone!P.S. Will needs to learn how to like Post Malone as a person and not as an Artist ;) P.P.S. I appreciate each and everyones personal opinion and it is okay that Will doesn't like PostP.P.P.S. Did you know that P.S. is short for Post Scriptum? Thanks Google

Long overdue!

I really can’t believe I haven’t written a review for this long, but I’m going to take a second to do so. This crew works so incredibly hard to crank out quality and entertaining content. I know that conceptually having a weekly podcast about Pokémon seems a bit...far fetched but they’ve managed to do it for nearly 9 years! I have been so thrilled to have been a supporter of this show since 2011 and I cannot wait to see what the future brings!If you’re taking a moment to read a review, take another to listen to an episode. You won’t regret it! 💜💖

This podcast is awesome no matter what aspect of Pokémon you are interested in- whether you play competitive, are a shiny hunter, are addicted to the TCG, or if you picked up Pokémon Go yesterday, this show is the best. The Slack community is great, and the Alola Vacation podcast is awesome too. Thanks for making the show SBJ and crew!From,Dakota.

The Best Beeping pokemon Podcast

The flexible cast keeps their fans up to date on everything of Pokémon. The perfect podcast for those on the GO with Pokémon in every way.

Guys, Firstly, I definitely appreciate the amount of detail and knowledge you both put into the play through for Let’s Go. This was the first of my experience with the show. You guys have great team chemistry and the banter between you keeps things interesting during long segments. I really would like to thank you both for paying and bringing attention to the nonexistent people of color in the Let’s Go series. As a life-long gamer of color, this matters to me as not many titles or content creators capture this issue. This podcast is absolutely amazing for that and I will keep listening for great Poke news!

This Podcast is Getting Me Through College

by NickCitrus on
Rating: ★★★★★

Hey all!! This year I started my first semester in college in Chicago and one of the things getting me through it was booting back up Pokémon Go and being able to play it walking through the city. I’ve been a lifelong Pokémon fan and having Pokémon be such a big part of my life led me to needing even more outlets of expressing it so I quickly and feverishly searched in the Podcast App on my phone for a Pokémon related podcast! Lo and Behold I discovered It’s Super Effective and I am now an active listener keeping up with all the weekly uploads, enjoying it immensely and listening while walking through the streets of Chicago swiping around my phone catching these fun little Pocket Monsters in Pokémon Go. I love listening and hearing the thoughts, jokes, and commentary on Pokémon as a whole and being completely absorbed into the world hearing all the news of Pokémon! Thanks for this wonderful podcast, I owe my college success and homesick days living in a brand new city to me to being able to listen to this podcast on a weekly basis. Rock on, It’s Super Effective!!!! ⚡️✨

Great Content!!

I love listening to this podcast! I've always been into Pokemon, but this helped me understand so much more about the games and the series. The content for episodes is always exciting and provides a fresh perspective. I suggest it to all of my friends who play!

Maybe not for everyone but it's OK

by Floyd Larson on
Rating: ★★★☆☆

The host keeps talking about how he's played pokemon for 22 years even though it's only been out in USA for 20 years. This podcast is sometimes full of weird flexes and gatekeeping, but if you can get over that it can be worth a listen as it's well produced and often shares some good info.

Good but could be better

by Thabugman on
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

So I would like to start by saying I love the lengthy talk about certain Pokémon news articles and anything related to Pokémon however something that I have hated from the beginning is that 2 of the hosts make sure you know almost every single episode is that “HEY IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW IT IM GAY” which is fine whatever. But I came to this podcast wanting to hear about Pokémon not about your sexuality. The host is a cool guy and surly deserves much more than he gets. Anyways worth the check I listen to this every week for almost a year now and besides that one aspect it is nice to have a great podcast.

This podcast is like a Primarina because it's the absolute best! I've been listening since 2015 and I even got into Pokémon Go because of the show. If you need Pokémon news, subscribe to ISE and you won't be disappointed. Great fun, great laughs, and Al is my favorite (and I'm American) lol

I’m fairly new to most gens of Pokémon other than the first one. But these guys are fun to listen to each and every week. Very informative and the side talk is minimal they stay on topic and the show is easily digested in my ear holes.

Love the cast and each persons personality. I’ve been a Pokémon fan since the release of Red and Blue and I’ve played every generation from then. Since finding this podcast, I’ve been more motivated and excited about the world of Pokémon and have finally began trying to complete the national dex, which I haven’t completed since catching the original 150 in Red. Thanks for the great content every week! Congrats on almost reaching 1,000 reviews!

Rating: ★★★★☆

Will is wrong about most things but in particular Gen 5 is the worst with the suckiest most generic animeish legendaries. BW2 was a joke (as is USUM). Gen 3 is the best.4/5 good podcast, solid content with coverage of all aspects of Pokémon.That Scottish guy was the best.

Reignited my love for Pokémon!

by Zellieda on
Rating: ★★★★★

I originally started listening to this podcast earlier this year as I had just gotten back into Pokémon Go and needed a source for news about updates and Community Days. Little did I expect it would become so much more. I’ve always been a Pokémon fan, my first game was Blue version, but I found myself losing interest in the games a few years ago. I never completed ORAS or SuMo, despite owning copies from both. I suspect my loss of interest had a lot to do with having no one to talk about the games to anymore, as most of my friends had moved on as they got older. Listening to SBJ and the rest of the crew talk about all the different aspects of Pokémon has reignited my love for Pokémon in a major way. I enjoy that they talk not only about the games, but also the show TCG and VGC and even about new merchandise that’s coming out. Listening to ISE has expanded my interest in Pokémon to the TCG, and has even piqued my interest towards the VGC. Pokémon is so expansive it can be overwhelming at times, and the ISE crew does a great job at covering the news of each element of Pokémon while keeping it very entertaining. I can’t speak for the Slack community but SBJ’s stream is absolutely lovely and the Discord channel associated with it is a wonderful, wonderful community that I’m so happy to be a part of. In summary, It’s Super Effective! is a wonderful Pokémon news podcast, but it is also a great hub for discussion and it is clear the crew has a lot of passion for the franchise. -Zel from stream.

Hey guys! So The last year I have been really into podcasts. So I tried to find a pokemon podcast a few months ago and came across this gem of a podcast. Literally just give this podcast a try. It’s one of the best ones for the topic. They give you news for Pokémon. And not just the game, they give you updates on the video games, trading card games, the anime and even Pokémon merch! Literally I sound like a broken record at this point, but it is one of the best podcasts out there. Thank you SBJ and crew for working so hard to get these episodes out there. We appreciate it!!😊

Very Annoying

by SJHPhoto on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

I really tried to get into this podcast since it had such a high rating. All it is is a few guys who talk as if they know everything (including one guy with that really condescending voice where you know if you get something even slightly wrong, he’d go, “Um, actually...” and proceed to give you a full lecture on what you got wrong and why) while actually speculating wildly themselves.Much of the time goes into uninteresting rambles and kind of makes you feel bad for these guys.But it all just makes me feel bad for listening, so I’d recommend stepping away from this podcast.
