Japanese Summary:



Japanese Summary Translation:

What the group found in the Galar Mine was a Galar Fire! Liko and the others want to close in on this Galar Fire, but it's burning with anger and keeps everyone at arm's length. What is the plan they come up with that incorporates Kabu's advice?!

What the group found in the Galar Mine was not the Black Rayquaza, but a Galar Fire carrying an ancient monster ball, the proof of being one of the Six Heroes that traveled with Lucius! Liko and the others want to close in on this Galar Fire somehow, but it's burning with anger and keeps everyone at arm's length. What is the plan they come up with that incorporates Gym Leader Kabu's advice that winning battles isn't the only way to be a Trainer?!

アニポケ 第23話「もえあがるガラルファイヤー」
リコのペンダントが、テラパゴス に…


CoroCoro Comic's Official website posted an article about this episode just before the original airing on September 22nd, 2023.


Anipoke is just around the corner! This is the strength of a Six Heroes Pokémon......! A great battle with an angry Galar Fire!!


Broadcasting every week from 6:55 pm! The anime "Pocket Monsters" will start airing soon! 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 information you won't find anywhere else!

The Rising Volt Tackler's have come to the Galar Mine in pursuit of the Black Rayquaza. However, what awaited Liko and her friends deep in the mine was a Galar Fire with an Ancient Monster Ball! Even Friede's Lizardon and Captain Pikachu are no match for the mighty Galar Fire, and Liko and her friends are forced to run for their lives! They managed to get back to a Pokémon Center.


▲ Friede let them escape and Liko and her friends managed to get out of the mine.


▲ They are relieved that the Pokémon have been treated. But what should they do against that Galar Fire?

Liko and her friends want to get closer to Galar Fire somehow. However, according to Dot's research, there is nothing they can do about the angry Galar Fire. Even if they went head-on, there'd be no chance of winning......!? That's when Liko remembered Gym Leader Kabu's words. "Winning battles is not the only path to becoming a trainer." In other words, it is not about defeating it......! What is the strategy that Liko came up with based on Kabu's counsel!?


▲ Galar Fire looked both angry and distressed.


▲ Liko's Mibrim also cried when they saw the Galar Fire, but why!?


▲ In addition to Galar Fire, there is also the possibility of another threat inside the mine, the Explorers.


▲ Also Liko's pendant...... It seems to resonate with Galar Fire, which seems to indicate that its one of the Six Heroes Pokémon......!?

More about this in today's Anipoke! Keep an eye on this shocking development that brings us another step closer to the mystery of Lucius!

【アニポケまであとちょっと!】これが六英雄ポケモンの強さ……!? 怒れるガラルファイヤーと大激突!!
しかし鉱山の奥でリコたちを待っていたのは、いにしえのモンスターボールを持つガラルファイヤーだった!! フリードのリザードンやキャプテンピカチュウでも敵わない強さのガラルファイヤーを前に、リコたちは逃げるので精いっぱい! なんとかポケモンセンターへと引き返してくるのだった。
どうにかしてガラルファイヤーに近づきたいリコたち。しかしドットの調査によると怒ったガラルファイヤーは手がつけられなくてどうしようもないという。真正面からぶつかっても勝ち目はない……!? そこでリコはジムリーダー・カブの言葉を思い出す。「バトルに勝つだけがトレーナーの道とは限らない」。つまり倒すのではなく……!? カブの言葉をヒントにリコが導き出した作戦とは!?
この続きは今日のアニポケで! ルシアスの謎にまた一歩近づく衝撃の展開から目が離せない!!


The official Japanese Anime PR Twitter account posted a four-frame look back illustration on September 28th, 2023 by #もじゃクッキー @mojacookie.

Liko got a new Mibrim.
Also, there is a battle with Galar Fire too!
They move forward with Trrapagos, which transformed from the pendant...!

カブさん の炎の特訓を受けたリコとロイ
リコは新たに ミブリム をゲットしました
そして、ガラルファイヤー とのバトルも
ペンダントから姿を変えた テラパゴス と共に前に進みます…!
( by #もじゃクッキー @mojacookie )

Kabu's direct lesson. Hogator learned Flamethrower!
Kabu: Let's keep training and learning until the end of our lives!
After that, they followed the black Rayquaza to Galar mine.
Roy: Rayquaza is waiting just up ahead!
Liko: Thank you for taking the first step.
Nyahoja: Nyaoha!
Mibrim: Mimi!
What was waiting for them was Galar Fire!?
The Explorers' Amethio and Friede get into a battle!
Then there is this Pokémon who came from the pendant.
There are still many things we don't know.
She'll walk step by step together with her Pokemon.

カブさん直々の卜しーニング! ホゲータはかえんほうしゃを 習得しました!
人生、 死ぬまで修行 学び続けよう!
その後、黒いレックウザを追って ガラルこうざんへ
レックウザが この先で 待ってる!
待っていたのは ガラルファイヤー!?
エクスプロ—ラーズの アメジオとフリードがバトルに!
ペンダントから 復活した この子のことも
まだまだ わからないこと ばかりだけど
ー歩ずつ ポケモンだちと ー緒に歩いていこつと 思います

Production Art

The official Japanese Anime PR Twitter account posted a behind-the-scenes look at the making of this Anipoke episode with a production artwork piece on September 21st, 2023. The picture featured Nyahoja and Hogator.

An original drawing of Nyahoja and Hogator from episode 23.
Nyahoja pats the fallen Hogator with its front paw.
Will Nyaoha's paw, which smell good, be a big help?

第23話よりホゲータとニャオハ の原画をご紹介


In the original airing on TV Tokyo on September 22nd, 2023, the closed captions indicated that the name of the Pokémon was Kodaikame (コダイカメ). Datamining of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Version 2.0.1 also showed that text for "kodaikame" was included in the games which seems to corroborate that Kodaikame was the initial or codename for Terapagos.

In today's broadcast of the anime Pocket Monsters, the name of the Pokémon Terrapagos was written in an unofficial way in the closed captions. The official name is Terapagos.

本日のアニメ『ポケットモンスター』字幕放送にて、ポケモン・テラパゴスの名称を、正式ではない表記をしておりました。 正式な表記は「テラパゴス」です。
