Summary:

The second Japanese ending for Pocket Monsters XY&Z featured the Rocket Gang. It replaced The Squishy Song for one episode.

The ending begins with the "R" Rocket Gang logo being shown as it transitions to separate splash cards for Musashi, Kojiro and Nyarth. A silhouetted 3d model of the 3 on a white background features the trio with long shadows as the camera pans around them.

A "wack-a-mole" scene features the trio and their Pokémon coming out of the hole in some of their most popular recent disguises. In sync with the "Ya na kanjii" part of the song, the trio and Sonansu blast off into the air and go through a few layers than get cutout in the shapes of their bodies until the point that Nyarth lands on a more solid red wall and hangs on for dear life.

Rocket Gang are then seen in their Nyarth hot air balloon but it quickly transitions to some of the mecha's they have built as well as the Alternate-colored Koiking submarine. A static picture of the trio looking scared is shown and then a scene featuring Sonansu dressed up like the Mona Lisa. Sakaki makes an appearance as the trio salutes their boss.

The final scene features the Rocket Gang in space on a rock with the Rocket Gang's flag planted there. Sonansu then appears and pushes them off.
