Her mom has logged 101 hours on BW and her father has logged 193 hours on a separate cart. True fans of the series! Saki got dressed up in her Mijumaru costume and sang Fanfare of the Heart, the first ending theme for Best Wishes. Robert gave her a Mijumaru plushie, as well as a signed Pokémon Smash poster and calendar.

Golgo, Misaki, and Professor Red head off to Kyūshū where they make their next stop at 8 year old Takuya Tsushima's (對間拓哉) home, as he submitted a picture dressed up as a Mijumaru.

Kind of spoiled the result of the poll, there!
Why would they vote for that one; the nearly dying in the snow episode is so much better than trying to catch a Master Ball.
Speaking of which, isn't this kind of a weird time to be doing this? Aren't there like, one or two Christmas episodes of Pokemon they could be showing to tie in with their secular Japanese Christmas episode?

And oh wow, there are some die-hard Pokemon fans out there. Some of those homes and fans were adorable!
