OP/ED List

Summary
The announcer introduced the show by saying: "Good morning boys and girls! We'll bring you the latest info on Pokémon! It's time for Pokémon Smash!" The episode started with Robert working on their Tanka technique and explain what a tanka is. The first tanka was literally Robert just saying "We are writing tanka, but what are tanka?" (ボケたちは たんかづくりを しています たんかがなにか しっていますか?) as a tanka. The second one they did was based off of Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition: "It evokes feelings of Warring State Officers, tanka being a pastime of the Warring States Period" (戦国の 武将のきもちに なりたくて 戦国武将の しゅみは短歌).

Shoko-tan then introduced this weeks rerun episode as part of the Pokémon Library. The theme for the episode was: Beware of the lovey-dovey ones! (ラブラブすきにご用心!). This weeks Pokémon Library rerun episode was Pikachu, Pochama, Keep Apart!! (ピカチュウポッチャマくっつかないで!!) from the Diamond and Pearl. 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 girls all showed up and Hana asked what a Tanka (短歌) is. The narrator then went on to explain the setup of a tanka for the audience.

They then decided to play a tanka game where they randomly took 7 or 5 syllable phrases from two piles and put them together to make a 5.7.5.7.7 tanka. They came up with: "Hi-Hi-Hiroshi, take off your western-style clothes before you face your mother and grandfather" (ヒヒヒロシ ぼくの母さん おじいさん 前を向きつつ 洋服をぬぐ).

For the VTR, Robert had a combat with the Shizuru Group as they experienced the World of Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition. The narrator briefly explained the game and showed a small clip from Pokémon Smash 72 when Robert went to Koei Tecmo to learn and play the game. In this episode, they expanded their coverage of the game. Yamamoto dressed up as the main protagonists of the game [PROTAGONIST (BOY) + EIEVUI (主人公+イーブイ)] while Baba dressed up as Oichi [OICHI-NO-KATA + PURIN (オイチ+プリン)]. Akiyama also dressed up as an original officer from the posters the artists of the game made and was partnered with Ryuuji+Monmen (モンメン+リュージ). Maria dressed up as MAEDA KEIJI and she was partnered with Yogiras. Hana dressed up as ODA NOBUNAGA while Misaki dressed up as TOYOTOMI HIDEYOSHI + Hikozaru. Kazuma Ikeda (池田一真) and Jun Murakami (村上純) from the comedy dup Shizuru (who also host children's variety show Oha Suta) played Hachisuka Koroku (コロク) and Hirano Nagayasu (ナガヤス).

Robert competed against a team-up of Shizuru and Misaki in a 3-on3 Combat on an original Pokémon Smash battle field that they setup in a gym. A grid was laid out to emulate the movement squares in the game. Akiyama+Monmen moved up really far ahead and Jun+Bippa attacked with Headbutt (ずつき) which was emulated by hitting him on the head. Misaki+Hikozaru then attacked with Ember which was emulated by her splashing Akiyama with hot water. Baba+Purin then moved into position to attack Misaki+Hikozaru and used DoubleSlap which knocked off her hat. Yamamoto+Eevee then moved into position and attacked Kazuma+Pokabu with Absorb which was emulated with Akiyama holding a vaccum against Misaki's cheek. That knocked out Misaki from the battle. Yamamoto and Akiyama then knocked out the other two to give Robert the victory in the battle.

After the battle the narrator talked about the Reshiram Event for the game that could be downloaded via Wi-Fi.

Wi-Fi Episode:

Image Description
Event Event Name: Reshiram Event (レシラムのイベント)
Dates Available for Japan: March 31st, 2012 to no end date
This event allows access to Reshiram, the legendary Fire/Dragon type Pokémon. Once downloaded, it will become accessible after viewing the game's ending.

In the game Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition, when a player befriended a Pokémon, they 'link' with it. They initially have a low link level and need to increase it by battling together. Shizuru needed to work on their link percentages and to emulate that process a conveyor belt of cream puffs for them to eat was setup. They each tried to eat as many as possible. Jun Murakami ended up getting Gureggru as his partner. Shizuru and Misaki then teamed up with Robert for the next battle.

MORI MOTONARI + Tsutarja, Takakage + Kurumiru and Motoharu + Yanappu were the next battlers to face the 6 of them in a 6-on-3 battle. Jun+Gureggru quickly moved into attack position and attacked Motoharu+Yanappu with Poison Sting. Kazuma+Pokabu also attacked Motoharu+Yanappu with Ember but also splashed Jun+Gureggru. Misaki+Hikozaru then attacked MORI MOTONARI + Tsutarja with Ember and slashed him with hot water but they attacked back and knocked Misaki+Hikozaru out of the battle. Yamamoto+Eevee decided they needed to retreat and regroup because MORI MOTONARI + Tsutarja was quite strong. They continued battling off screen for a bit and Akiyama and Jun both were knocked out as well. With the Yamamoto+Eevee as the last remaining battler against MORI MOTONARI + Tsutarja, he attacked with Quick Attack and managed to knock them out to give them the battle win. Yamamoto celebrated but no one was really too happy as they'd all been knocked out.

The battle was fun to watch and showed the basics of battling in the game. I'm not sure we'll see this game released in English but there has been some rumbling that it will be localized.
