During the live action segment of the show, the cast performs a Illusion quiz. The first quiz question featured Robert hiding and blending in with the street. (1)いったいどこに！？街の中に幻影として隠れてしまったロバートを探しだせ！ Professor Red, Shoko and Director Golgo each took turns while the video played trying to guess if people or objects were the specific members of Robert. Shoko was able to guess that Akiyama was Lucario's shadow.
The second quiz question featured three people behind a screen with light projected on it to make the people behind it look like silhouette. (2)どれがホンモノ！？スクリーンの向こうに現れる様々な幻影から秋山隊員を見つけだせ！・・・さあキミは幻影を見抜くことはできるかな？ Professor Red, Shoko and Director Golgo were then asked to guess which of the three people was Akiyama. The silhouettes performed various moves and shifted their shape to make it difficult for them to choose which one was Akiyama. In the end all three managed to figure out that the second person was Akiyama.
In last weeks episode, Robert did various tasks to make Professor Red more lucky so he could win at Pokémon Battles once again. Director Golgo decided to see if what they did was enough to make him lucky and challenged him to a battle. Red was able to win the battle to finally end his loosing streak.
This weeks episode of Pokémon Sunday also featured a special short anime episode based on the new Pokémon Ranger: Paths of Light Nintendo DS game during the Pokémon Ranger Corner. The episode aired in standard definition and fullscreen (4:3).
The anime short begins with Latios being chased in the sky by Pokémon Nappers (ポケモンナッパーズ) in the Oblivia (オブリビア) region. The episode features Pokémon Ranger Natsuya (ナツヤ) who was given a mission to protect the Latios. It quickly flashes back to the Ranger Union and shows Natsuya getting the mission from Professor Shinbara (シンバラ教授) and walking out of the building to see a Mukuhawk. He captures the Mukuhawk and the show returns to the current time.
Natsuya manages to fend off the Nappers long enough for Latios to get away but Red Eye (レッドアイ) appears and shoots him down. Natsuya falls into the water and then washes up on shore. After collecting himself, Natsuya sees Ukulele Pichu (ウクレレピチュー) hiding behind a tree. He decides to capture it as the episode ends.
