The anime rerun episode for this week was 'The Soaring Legend - Hiroshi and Fire!' which features Hiroshi, one of Satoshi's rivals. While traveling, Hiroshi encounters Silver, a Pokémon trainer searching to capture Fire. Will he be able to capture the legendary Pokémon Fire or will Rocket Gang manage to capture it?!
After the rerun episode, Robert and TIM discuss their reactions to it briefly before Professor Red wondered where Shoko was. Moments later, Shoko walks through the sliding doors holding a Mew. Golgo decides to play a quick game of Peak-a-Boo with it but lets off a fart near Robert causing them to move away and try to blow the smell away. Akiyama takes Mew from Shoko and holds it in his hands for a few moments until it fly's up into the air and disappears. Everyone is surprised that it disappeared and all wondered where it when.
For this weeks Pokémon Daisuki Project, Robert goes searching for the Phantom Pokémon Mew that disappeared from the studio. Robert tries meditating to see if they could contact Mew while enduring many distractions. After their mediation session, Mew appears outside the window and Robert quickly pursues it. Their chase takes them to a forest where they have to overcome a lot of obstacles. After a day of chasing it, Mew disappears and Robert are disappointed that they couldn't keep up with it. Yamamoto then gets a phone call from Shoko telling him that Mew has returned to the studio with her.
