A clip from the first episode was then shown which featured Satoshi and Pikachu exploring the city. The FPI special agent then spotted an artist drawing something and he wanted to know what it was. The artist then explained that it was a Keromatsu (ケロマツ). The FPI agent had not seen it before and wanted the artist make it move. The artist then took him to another artist who had a hand drawn flipbook and she showed Keromatsu move by flipping the pages. The narrator then explained the process of taking the handrawn images and then coloring them on the computer.

When does Satoshi become a Pokémon Master? I can't answer that question. (それは内緒です)
Would you make animation of me. My daughter is a huge fun[sic] of Pokémon. That can be arranged. (それは大丈夫です)
