Mar 03 2013 Pokémon Smash 125

The announcer introduced the show by greeting the audience by saying: "Hello and this week Robert is going to coordinate a farewell party for friends! Stay with us on Pokémon Smash. The cast then greeted viewers by doing a side bow and saying PokéMorning. Golgo then introduced the new segment "Get Presents Through the Pokémon Finale Act" (ポケモン大喜利deプレゼントゲット). Each week, two PokéSma members will be given a question to provide a humorous answer for during the final segment of the episode. Viewers will call in to vote for which of the two they want to perform this skit. (ポケスマメンバー2人のどちらの答えを聞きたいかみんなに電話投票してもらい勝者を決定!). The one who gets the most caller votes wins. The viewers who voted for the winner will then be entered in a lottery where they can win a special poster. (電話投票の勝者に電話してくれた人の中から抽選でポケスマ特製ポスターをプレゼント!). This weeks topic is: "Director Lucario is shouting towards the sunset. But what is he shouting?" (夕日に向かって叫ぶルカリオ部長!一体何を叫んでいる?). Red and Akiyama won the quick round and became this weeks call-ins. Viewers could call in to vote for either.

There was no theme for the Library episode but it did link to the new episode of the week Get Fired Up, Lizardon! VS Kairyu!! (燃えよリザードン!VSカイリュー!!) which featured the return of Satoshi's Lizardon. This weeks Pokémon Library rerun episode was The Lizardon Valley! Till the Day we Meet Again! (リザードンのたに!またあうひまで!!) from the original series. A full summary of that episode is available in the episode guide. Professor Red said his go-to line 'OK! Pokémon Library!' to start the repeat episode.

After the Library episode, the cast reminded viewers were reminded that Get Fired Up, Lizardon! VS Kairyu!! (燃えよリザードン!VSカイリュー!!) would air on Thursday, March 7th, 2013 at 7pm.
