▲ Roy, in the mood for sightseeing, was excited to see the Pokémon and the streets of the Paldea region!


▲ Meanwhile, Dot is remaining on the blimp and is...... secretly washing something!?


▲ Will the adventure end when they reach her home? Liko walks with a confused feeling.

With these feelings, Liko finally arrives at her own home. Friede and the others are greeted by Alex, Liko's father. Liko tries to relax in her room for the first time in a while, but she unexpectedly hears her father's true intention when he talks with Friede. He wants Liko to stay at home from now on.......


▲ This is Liko's house, which has finally been revealed!


▲ Liko's father, who paints Pokémon artwork and picture books, also made his first appearance!

Liko has just taken her first step with courage, but will her adventure end here? What is it that Liko really wants to do!? ......and the rest of the story is on today's Anipoke!!
