OP/ED List

Summary
The announcer introduced the show by saying: "Welcome back! Today we will do the collaboration of the Best Wishes Season 2! Let's kick off! PokéSmash!". The episode started with the entire cast pertending to be sleeping while Twinkle Twinkle Little Star played. Akiyama then asked the question "What day is today?" (今日は何の日?). Yamamoto then explained that they were trying to come up with a name for that day. They discussed different names and gave various reasons for chosing the name. What they eventually came up with was "Plusle and Minun Day" since the kanji for 11 is 十一, so 11/11 is 十一十一, plus-minus-plus-minus. To the western world, November 11th, is Remembrance Day.
