Shoko-tan starts off the episode by stating that she needs to go get some more ingredients for her Swiss rolls. Since today's episode airs on the 6th day of the 6th month and the inside of a Swiss roll looks like the number 6, she thought it would be an excellent idea to make them. Yamamoto asks if he can see the ingredients and is surprised to find out that she plans to add: natto (なっとう fermented soybeans), wasabi (わさび Japanese horseradish) and some kind of flour he couldn't recognize into the Swiss rolls. The crew quickly stops her from leaving as they don't want to be subjected to her horrible cooking once again.
Golgo interjects and gets Shoko-tan to announce this weeks new rerun theme, 'Sinnoh League begins! The Rival Shinji' (シンオウリーグが開幕！ライバルのシンジ！). Rival Battle! Three vs. Three!!

Professor Red decides to show off his latest invention: The RED 058 PokéSun Grand Prix (ポケサングランプリ). It is designed based on the toy that Robert was playing with earlier. Red gets Shoko-tan dressed up as a Hikozaru by giving her a hair band with its flame on top and two ears out the sides. Red gets Shoko-tan to play his game called Yamamoto Crash (ヤマモトクラッシュ). Yamamoto then walks in with a bunch of balls stuck to his body that are supposed to represent rocks. Shoko is told to start the game and she begins wacking them off his body with two hammers. Golgo quickly takes over because he wants to hit Yamamoto with the hammers.
The crew is then interrupted by (コレエダーマン) who recently made an appearance on the show. TIM then head off do a special PokéSun Shinkiroku based on the new movie. The first event features Celebi and required the teams to hold a bucket of water over their heads while walking across a thin plank to the other side. The team that did it the fastest while loosing the least about of water was the winner. Team B was the winner.
The next even was based on the video game Pokémon Snap. Contestants were given a DSi and were told to take the best picture of Zoroark that they could. Red and Golgo hid under a tarp with holes and would randomly pop up hoping to distract the kids into taking a picture of them instead of Zoroark. Once their turn was up, the best picture they took would be rated out of 15. A girl ended up winning the event with 9 points.
The final event was the PokéWalker relay. A new record was set by the yellow team with -404 breaking the previous record of -310. During the Pokémon Game Arena, Director Golgo played Pokémon Battle Revolution against Kumadarei-kun. Golgo was able to defeat him.
