, aired today in Japan.
The anime rerun episode for this week was 'Masara Town The Setting off of a Pokémon Trainer'. The episode followed a new beginning trainer named Hajime who was visiting Professor Okido's laboratory to get his starter Pokémon. A Tauros stampede crashes through the lab and the starter Pokémon get spooked and run away. Will Professor Okido be able to recover the starter Pokémon so Hajime can choose from them?
During the main segment of the show, a letter was sent to the PokéSun Company by MooMoo Milk (モーモーミルク) & The Mysterious Choreographer P (謎の振り付け師P). The crew is a bit confused who they are at first, but Shoko explains that MooMoo Milk is part of the new live action ending theme for Pocket Monsters Diamond and Pearl, Dotchi Nyo~! (ドッチ~ニョ？)
. Professor Red then realizes that there is a dance associated with the song and Robert persuades Professor Red to show them. Reluctantly, he tries to perform the moves in front of them but only manages to make a fool of himself in the process. Golgo suggests that Lucario show them the dance, but Lucario just ends up doing his normal excited dance moves. Robert then head off to meet MooMoo Milk.
Robert visits a gym where MooMoo Milk and Kids are preforming the Dotchi Nyo~! dance. They watch them complete the dance in the middle of the room before greeting them. TV Tokyo has posted the dance moves for the Dotchi Nyo~! dance on their website
. They are also available by clicking on the image to the right.
After completing the full dance, the main singer for MooMoo Milk and the choreographer, who reveals himself as Papaya Suzuki (パパイヤ鈴木さん)
, introduce themselves. Papaya Suzuki is famous for his role as the voice actor for Bogie (ボギー)
, the Wish Maker vendor, as well as for his choreography and dancing in the DVD bonus feature Polka O Dolka, Let's Dance!
For the first quiz question, MooMoo Milk-san put her hand into the box with a bunch of questions and read the question on the paper that she selected from the box. Robert was asked the question: Will hot water still be hot when sprayed from a bottle? (熱湯を霧吹きに入れてかけたら). The two answers they could choose from were: 'A - Hot' (A 熱い) and 'B - Not Hot' (B 熱くない). Robert stood down the middle of a red line on the gym floor as they danced to Dotchi Nyo. They were instructed to pick the A or B side at the end of the song, the side that corresponded to their answer. Akiyama was the odd one out by choosing B. They tested spraying hot water on his arm a few times to see if it was hot. He was able to withstand the sprayed water which lead Yamamoto to see if the spray bottle water was hot and it was.
The second quiz question asked: Can you stand up with only 1 finger holding you down? (指１本で立てなくする事が). The answers were: 'A - Possible' (A できる) and 'B - Not Possible' (B できない). Baba was the odd one out this time choosing B and he sat down on a chair while MooMoo Milk-san put her index finger on his forehead and told him to stand up. He wasn't able to get up. Akiyama thought Baba was fooling around and tried it himself but he also wasn't able to get up.
The third quiz question asked: Immediately after ten rotations left and right, can you run? (右・左に１０回転した後まっすぐ前に). The answers were: 'A - Can Run' (走れる) and 'B - Cannot Run' (走れない). Baba was the odd one out again this time, but he chose 'A - Can Run'. MooMoo Milk-san and Papaya Suzuki spun him around 10 times on a chair and after the 10th spin, Baba got up and tried to run. He fell down on the gym floor a few meters from the chair.
The final question asked: Can you stand on the eggs without breaking them? (たまごの上に人間が乗ったらたまごは)。The answers were: 'A - Will Break' (割れる) and 'B - Won't break' (割れない). Yamamoto was the odd one out by choosing 'B - Won't break'. With the help of Akiyama and Papaya Suzuki, they lifted up Yamamoto onto the tray's of eggs where he stood on them for a minute or so and did the Dotchi Nyo dance. After getting off, they checked all the layers to see if any of the eggs had broken. Yamamoto was right and none of them broke.
