Today's episode of Pokémon Sunday (ポケモン☆サンデー) marks the 300th episode of the series. The series began 6 years ago on October 3rd, 2004 taking the place of the previous variety show the Weekly Pokémon Broadcasting Station (週刊ポケモン放送局). To celebrate the 300th episode, the PokéSun crew had a small party near the top of Tokyo Tower (東京タワー). At the beginning of the episode, the crew was busy setting up decorations but Golgo noticed that Akiyama wasn't around. He quickly found him asleep on the floor and woke him up so he'd help out. Shoko-tan announced the theme as the rerun episode began.

This weeks rerun theme, is a continuation of the current Water Pokémon theme, 'Cooling Summer! Water Pokémon Big Gathering!' (夏を涼しく!みずポケモン大集合!). Whose is Waninoko!? Satoshi VS Kasumi! was this weeks repeat episode. In this episode, Satoshi and Kasumi both attempt to catch a Waninoko. Who will end up catching it?! A full episode summary is available in the Episode Guide.

After the rerun episode, scenes from the show over the past 6 years was shown as a retrospect with highlights of some of their most popular skits. Golgo pulled the ball decoration to reveal a 300th episode banner. Leader Kimori returned with a bouquet of flowers and to get reacquainted with everyone. Chef Takagi Yasuhiro (高木康裕) last seen in Pokémon Sunday 218 returned with a cake shaped as a monster ball. The cake also had the heads of all the main cast members on top.

The crew then explained they would be heading off on a road trip to Mount Fuji and on the way they watched scenes from previous episodes. The RED020 Sushinga Robot (RED020 スシンガー) from Pokémon Sunday 43 returned to give a congratulatory message.

The next segment featured clips from some of the battles that Golgo's Okutank had participated in over the years. Rikako-chan (宮里利佳子), who defeated Golgo in a battle and as is customary when a challenged defeats a PokéSun cast member, was given the choice of which of Golgo's Pokémon he wished to trade. Rikako-chan chose Golgo's precious Okutank, to Golgo's dismay. Rikako-chan dressed up as an Okutank to give his congratulatory message and to give Golgo and update on Okutank. It's now level 44 and has spent time in My Pokémon Ranch (みんなのポケモン牧場).
