The Rising Volt Tacklers head with their blimp to the Paldea region, where the Black Rayquaza, which came out of Roy's Ancient Monster Ball, was said to be headed. However, they discover that the blimp's food supply is running low, so they decide to go shopping in town for ingredients!

pic

▲ Why are all the ingredients for sweets decreasing ......? Is someone snacking on them?

pic

▲ Is this shadowy figure that sleepy Roy saw in the kitchen the culprit......!?

pic

▲ The winners will go to the city to do some shopping! The loser will have to stay at the blimp. Rock, Paper, Scissors!

pic

▲ The one who lost was the member who was looking forward to the city the most.......

In exchange for hearing a special secret from Roy, Liko swapped duties with him. After finishing her duties of feeding the Pokémon and cleaning the blimp, she decided to take a peek at the "secret" that Roy had told her!

pic

▲ The secret is...... a secret cupboard in the airship's kitchen!?

pic

▲ The cupboard that Roy saw in the middle of the night was also opened by the figure he saw....... What's in it!?

Do you remember that there was another Off-Limits Door on the airship......! That's Dot room, who is another member! The inside of the room and Dot's appearance will be revealed in today's broadcast.......?!
