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!

In the previous episode, the Rising Volt Tackler's met Laplace, one of the Six Heroes, and managed to convey their feelings to it. Laplace entered the ancient monster ball so it could accompany Liko and the others, and just when it seemed that the matter was settled......! Suddenly, the Black Rayquaza appears in front of the Rising Volt Tackler's!!


▲ Rayquaza suddenly appeared! It seems to have no intention of fighting with them, but what does its heart say......!?


▲ Liko's grandmother Diana is also shocked by the unexpected turn of events. But her expression is like a happy child!!

It is the Black Rayquaza that the Rising Volt Tackler's have been chasing for a long time! Liko wants to convey her feelings to follow in the footsteps of Lucius, the adventurer from ancient times. Roy, though really wants to battle it. While everyone's thoughts are expressed, there is one more person who has strong feelings for the Black Rayquaza......! As if he timed it just right, Amethio from the Explorers intervenes!


▲ A shadow jumps out in front of the Black Rayquaza! It's Amethio's Soublades!!


▲ Amethio attacks the Black Rayquaza. How in the world did he get here!?


▲ It seems that Amethio was chasing the Black Rayquaza to catch it...!?

After receiving an unexpected attack, Rayquaza lets out a roar of anger and counterattacks against Amethio, but the nearby Rising Volt Tackler's are also caught up in the attack!! Liko and the others are in a big pinch... At that very moment, Terapagos' body emits a mysterious glow!!!


▲ Rayquaza's anger is so great that the small island might be blown away! It's quite dangerous...!!


▲ Something strange happened to Terapagos when it saw that Liko and Roy were in big trouble!!?


▲ Terapagos begins to shine with a dazzling light. What is going on!?

So, the story will continue today at 6:55 pm on Anipoke! Suddenly, the Black Rayquaza appeared...... What is its intention!?


▲ Liko is staring at......!? Find out on today's broadcast!!
