The announcer introduced the show by saying: "Today we'll celebrate a brand new start of Pokémon Best Wishes Season 2! So stay with us! Pokémon Smash!" The episode started of with the Smash crew looking at a countdown clock that had 143 hours left on it till Pocket Monsters Black 2 and White 2 would be released in Japan. Akiyama then slightly hit the clock with his hand and it completely reset it to have just a few seconds left on it till launch. Golgo shows up and they all quickly cover up the clock and Golgo wonders what's under the cover. The clock then starts saying the final 10 second countdown and then announces the launch of the games. Golgo gets mad and Yamamoto says that Akiyama was the one that touched the clock.

Professor Red introduced this weeks rerun episode as part of the Pokémon Library. The theme for the episode was: Koiking do not become Gyarados in one day (ギャラドスは1日にしてならず!). This weeks Pokémon Library rerun episode was Koiking! The Secret of Evolution!! (コイキング! しんかのひみつ!!) from the original series. The moral is a play on the saying "Rome was not built in one day" (ローマは1日にしてならず). A full summary of that episode is available in the episode guide. Professor Red said his go-to line 'OK! Pokémon Library!' to start the repeat episode.

After the Pokémon Library episode, the International Division girls show up and Hana is holding a huge poster for Pocket Monsters Best Wishes Season 2 which starts airing 4 days after this Smash episode. Hana then handed over the poster to reveal that she was dressed up as a Pirouette Form Meloetta.

Black 2 White 2 Secret Sword Event

In B2W2, a special event will occur in the forest by the second town, Sanagi Town, resulting in Keldeo learning the special move Secret Sword. Immediately after learning the move, Keldeo will transform into its Resolution Form. Keldeo will be able to re-learn Secret Sword by doing this event again. You will not be able to trade a Resolution Form Keldeo to Black and White. If you wish to trade Keldeo to one of these games, you must revert it to its Usual Form by forgetting Secret Sword. To make Keldeo learn Secret Sword in Black and White, put Cobalon, Terrakion and Virizion on your team and head to the Moor of Sekka! However, this will not make Keldeo change to its Resolution Form.
