On January 20th, 2023, the official Japanese anime Twitter account posted a quote from Mamoru Miyano, Dent's voice actor, from the press release.

Comments from Mamoru Miyano, who plays Dent:
The days I spent on the TV anime "Pocket Monsters Best Wishes" were invaluable to me. I met people I love, learned a lot as an actor, and have many treasures that are imporant in my life. This time, I'm really, really happy to appear for the first time in about 7 years!
Satoshi's victory is very emotional for me, both as a staff member and as a viewer of the Pocket Monsters TV animation since its broadcast in 1997... I am filled with emotion...
Dent has not appeared in this show for a long time, but as expected, he talks a lot when he does appear (laugh).
Once again, with his expertise and knowledge, he is like a talking machine gun (laughs)
Please look forward to see what kind of case the high-spirited Dent will face with Satoshi and his friends!


After Story

The official Japanese Anime PR Twitter account posted an After Story comic on January 29th, 2023 by #もじゃクッキー @mojacookie.

Anipoke After Story
Dent parted ways with Satoshi and the others to attend the unveiling event of Nobori & Kudari's new train car.
After arriving, he and his partner Yanappu got their boxed lunch.
As a Boxed Lunch Sommelier, he had to taste it fully.

その後、パートナーのヤナップ とともに

Dent: It's tasting time!
デント: イツツ!テイスティングターイム!


CoroCoro Comic's Official website posted an article about this episode just before the original airing on January 27th, 2023. They also tweeted about the page on the official CoroCoro Comic Twitter account to promote it.


Anipoke is just around the corner! Takeshi and Dent make an appearance! Unexpected reunion with former travel companions!

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! Satoshi's old travel companions are in today's broadcast!?


Satoshi and Pikachu are on a carefree journey. While having lunch with Kasumi, who has decided to join them in their travels again, find that the master of the restaurant is...... Takeshi! And then Dent shows up! They are unexpectedly reunited with their former travel companions!


▲ Takeshi, like Kasumi, was once a fellow traveler with Satoshi.


▲ The excitement of their reunion is short-lived, however, as Takeshi's heart is broken before Satoshi and his friends' eyes.


▲ The two of them are both relieved...... to see that Takeshi is still the same as ever.


▲ Dent is a Pokémon Sommelier who once traveled with Satoshi through the Isshu region.

Takeshi, who is feeling low after a heartbreak, is lead away when a wild Brimuon, also known as "the Forest Witch", suddenly appears in front of him. What is the fate of Takeshi, who has been kidnapped by Brimuon? What is Brimuon's purpose for doing this?


▲ Takeshi is taken deep into the forest after hallucinating because of Brimuon's Psychic powers.


▲ Dent, the "Sommelier Detective (self-proclaimed)", deduces why Takeshi has disappeared deep into the forest!


▲ According to Dent's reasoning, Takeshi's negative aura is the reason why he's depressed and heartbroken...!?


▲Satoshi and his friends decide to look for Takeshi with the help of Mibrim!


▲Will Satoshi, Kasumi, and Dent be able to rescue Takeshi!?
