The International division girls show up and then say there is a new Pokémon going to be in the new movie. Robert then run in and Golgo asks if they had any news about the new movie but Baba is confused as they don't hae any news.

Robert then head off to Koei Tecmo where the game was being developed. They walked into a meeting and the producer Hisashi Koinuma (鯉沼久史) met with Robert who agreed to show them some things about the new game. The first point in Hiroshi's Ambition information discovery was: I want to know about the characters!(登場人物についてしりたい!). Koinuma explained that the main characters in the game are officers (ブショー), people possessing specials bonds with Pokémon. The protagonist, as the officer leader of Hajime Province, becomes involved in the unfolding war of the many strong leaders, led by Nobunaga, who seek to cause the downfall of Ranse.

The second point in Hiroshi's Ambition information discovery was: I would like to inspect a company! (会社を見学したい!). Rober then went outside and looked around the building. They then noticed a large tile mural in the courtyard of the building. They then went to the sound room and Yamamoto did his own voiceover for the games commercial.

The third point in Hiroshi's Ambition information discovery was: Play Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition for TV! (テレビ初ポケモン+ノブナガの野望をプレイ!). The producer and the other staff members discussed it for a bit and they agreed to let Yamamoto play the game. Game Director Osamu Saigusa (三枝修) was then introduced and Yamamoto began by entering his name for the game. While playing, Saigusa explained that the game is based on the officers who fight for supreme control of the 17 provinces that make up the Ranse Region (ランセ地方). Oichi was introduced and she is a mysterious, pretty officer girl who arrived in Hajime Province, supporting the protagonist for unknown reasons. Her Partner Pokémon is Purin.

After playing the game a bit and showing it off, 6-on-6 player battles were introduced and Koinuma battled against Yamamoto. The first battle didn't go well for Yamamoto and he ended up being beat by Koinuma. In the next match, since Koinuma had the advantage as he knew more about the game, they gave Yamamoto 6 Pokémon to battle with while Koinuma only had 4 Pokémon. Yamamoto ended up winnning that round.

This seems like it will be a very in depth game. Initially I didn't think I was going to be very interested in this game, but after watching the game on the show, it kind of reminded me of Final Fantasy Tactics, a game I really enjoyed. I'll probably check this game out when it's released.
