Anipoke is just around the corner! The Masters Tournament Finals! The fierce battle isn't over yet!


The anime "Pocket Monsters" will start airing soon! It airs every Friday at 6:55 p.m. and it is very popular! In this article, we'll introduce you to the Pokémon and characters that will appear in today's episode, as well as comments from the voice actors and director, and other Anipoke information you won't find anywhere else! The match between Dande and Satoshi, watched by the whole world, is now reaching the best part!!


Dande's suggestion led to a full-power battle using all of their Daimax, Mega Evolutions, and Z-Moves and the final match was a back-and-forth battle with both sides refusing to budge! Today's broadcast begins with Dande losing his Inteleon and Satoshi losing his Gangar!!


▲ 5 Pokémon left, 5 against 5! The match is still on!

Satoshi is struggling after his Gangar is defeated by Dande's Barrikohru. The battlefield is now frozen by Barrikohru's Freeze-Dry move, and the power of Psychic moves had been increased by using Psychic Terrain. What is the next Pokémon that Satoshi will use......!?


▲ Satoshi decides to....... use a Fighting type! He chooses Negigaknight!!


▲ The Psychic type Barrikohru isn't at a disadvantage... so, Satoshi must have an idea!!

As if in response to Satoshi, who was coming straight at him no matter what the situation, Dande also went into full serious mode! Satoshi managed to fight back, switching Pokémon with Lucario and Uonoragon, but even that was part of Dande's plan!!?


▲ Dorapult VS Mega Lucario! Following Daimax Gangar, Lucario is going to Mega evolve!


▲ What's that sticking out of Uonoragon's mouth... Is it a Dorameshiya fired by Dorapult!?


▲ Kairyu also makes an appearance! What is this move that Kairyu is using as it soars in the sky above the stadium...!?


▲ But is it all up to Dande? What's going on with Lucario!!?

Four weeks for the Final Battle, and tonight is Week 2! The fierce battle in the finals continues!


▲ Who will win the Masters Tournament...... Which one do you think!?
