ポケモン言えるかな?BW
Can You Say the Pokémon? BW
Summary
The announcer introduced the show by saying: "And now, we'll get you the lastest Pokémon information right here on Pokémon Smash! Here we go!". The crew walked in and went over to see Golgo, Mijumaru and Zoroark. Golgo was holding a map of Saitama Prefecture (埼玉県) with an arrow pointing to Golgo's home town (ゴルゴ所長のふるさと). Robert then says since they are talking about Saitama, Robert then associate the area with Maiko but Golgo quickly corrects them by saying that Kyoto Prefecture. The rest of the crew then starts off by saying 'Speaking of Saitama Prefecture...'(埼玉県といえば...?) for their questions. Yamamoto then says the area is know for Deer (シカ) but quickly tells him that he's thinking of Nara Prefecture(奈良県). Red then says he thinks the area is know for a large body of water (に本ー大きな湖) which Golgo corrects as Shiga Prefecture(滋賀県). Baba then says its known for the Great Barrier Reef(グレートバリアリーフ) but Golgo says that Australia. Golgo ends up calling them all idiots and get's Shoko-tan to introduce the Pokémon Library episode.

Shoko-tan introduced this weeks rerun episode as part of the Pokémon Library and he also announces this weeks theme, Observing strengths and weaknesses can be mutually beneficial!(おたがいの長所と短所をみとめ会おう!). This weeks Pokémon Library rerun episode was Nyula and Barrierd! Whose Restaurant!? (ニューラとバリヤード! どっちのレストラン!?) from the Advanced Generation series. A full summary of that episode is available in the episode guide. Professor Red said his go-to line 'OK! Pokémon Library!' to start the repeat episode.

After the Pokémon Library episode, the International division girls showed up and Professor Red announced that TIM and the girls had gone to Golgo's home town for a visit. Golgo then held the 'Quiz! Golgo Tours' (クイズ! ゴルゴツアーズ) in studio. Players that got the question right would get an Oyaki (おやき) ball. Golgo then introduced a VTR segment segment.

In the viewer battle, Shoko-tan faced off against Yamoto-kun. Shoko-tan proved to be a strong opponent for Yamato-kun in this battle and ended up winning.

A clip from the 2011 Pokémon World Championships from San Diego, California with many fans competing in the TCG and Video Game world championships was shown. One highlight for many fans was the special song presentation by MTM with Battle Woman M. The members of the band were revealed at the 2011 World Championships as part of the Opening Ceremony to the surprise of many. Battle Woman M is Misaki Momose from Pokémon Smash, GAME FREAK director Junichi Masuda plays the keyboards, Shinji Miyazaki is the bassist and finally Creatures president Hirokazu Tanaka is the drummer.

The song Battle Gene M (バトル遺伝子M) and the group MTM (mystery thunder mask) were first presented on Pokémon Smash 43 but the reveal was clouded in mystery and the band members were all wearing complete face masks so it was hard to identify them. It was revealed a few weeks ago that the songs lyrics are by Akihito Toda, the original Music is by Junichi Masuda and the Arrangement was done by Shinji Miyazaki but the fact that they were also band members was not revealed till the Opening Ceremony performance. The clip ended with 'To be Continued...'

Very interesting episode to get a bit more background about Golgo. He definitely lived a humble life which is good to ground a person. It was funny to see his brother and mom with mustaches.
