Episode PictureThe latest episode of Pokémon Sunday, Lord Nyarth's Island!? / Group Member Baba Trains in order to Win Back the Pokémon Battle Throne! / The Announcement of the New Pokémon XX! (おニャースさまのしま!? / 馬場隊員がポケサンバトル王座奪還を目指して特訓!/新ポケモンの○○を発表!), aired today in Japan.

This weeks episode started with the Pokémon Sunday crew wishing Shoko-tan a happy birthday as she celebrated it on May 5th. They brought out a large box which ended up being a large ice cream cone hat. She thanked them and put the hat on and introduced this weeks repeat episode.

This week featured a continuation of last weeks rerun theme, 'Pikachu and Nyarth's Nice Little Talks', and Lord Nyarth's Island!? was this weeks repeat episode. In this episode, Nyarth is separated from his friends on an island where the inhabitants treat him as their god. A full summary for this episode is available in the episode guide.

Professor Red started off the live action segment of the show by revealing his latest invention, the RED 056 Guess the Pokémon Quiz SHOW! (クイズポケモンあてまSHOW!). The device is based on the recently released quiz board game with the same name that gets players to put a card into the device and slowly reveal the Pokémon behind the screen. Screenshots from the board games commercial are posted below. Professor Red adapted his machine to put people in it instead and then asked the crew to guess who they thought was behind the screen.

Shoko was able to guess the first person behind the screen, Handsome Yamamoto, after he made a few funny faces against the screen. The next person to be revealed was Shoko-tan Akiyama which Golgo guessed correctly. Akiyama was dressed up just like Shoko which scared the real Shoko-tan a bit.

In Baba's recent battles, he hasn't done very well and the crew believes that his battling is currently weak. Baba vows to regain his fighting spirit and return to his position as the strongest battling member in the Pokémon Sunday crew. He decides to go to the Pokémon Center to battle people there. He looses his first double battle and then quickly looses his second one. Both times the challengers smack him with a fan. Hoping that his practicing had increased his luck and skills, Baba was challenged by the in-studio guest of the week to a battle. Unfortunately for Baba, he lost and he had to give up his Kyorge.

During the Pokémon Game Arena segment, the three Pokémon silhouettes were revealed. More information regarding them will be announced on next weeks episode.

Episode PictureThe latest episode of Pokémon Sunday, Pikachu's Entering the Rocket Gang!? / Professor Akido's Experiment 'Can People Take on Other Forms like Zoroark does!?' / Director Shoko-tan's Television Viewer Battle Debut! (ピカチュウ、ロケット団に入る!? / アーキド博士の実験「人間もゾロアークのように化けることができるのか?」 / しょこたん部長が視聴者バトルに登場!), aired today in Japan.

This week featured a new rerun theme, 'Pikachu and Nyarth's Nice Little Talks', and Pikachu's Entering the Rocket Gang!? was this weeks repeat episode. In this episode, Pikachu and Nyarth ended up separated from their respective groups after an explosion, and when Nyarth discovers Pikachu has lost his memory, he takes the opportunity to make him a Rocket Gang member.

Professor Akido makes his return this episode, again researching similarities between humans and Pokémon. This time, he wanted to see if the berries making Pokémon resist attacks of specific types have the same effect on humans. He feeds Golgo a Ririba Berry, which grants resistance against steel attacks, and attacks Golgo with makeshift Iron Tail and Metal Claw attacks. After Golgo ends up taking as much damage as he normally would, Akido descovers he accidentally gave him the wrong berry.

Next, Akido attempts to see if humans can take on other forms like the new Pokémon Zoroark has been shown to. Baba is successfully able to take on Deoxys' looks by use of a costume, so Akido has him try to use Deoxys' move Snatch to see if he's a perfect replica. Baba is sent into a basketball match where he has to play against an entire team at once, and doesn't fare particularly well, so Akido deduces humans can't take on Pokémon forms completely.

He still wants to see if they can take on other forms, so he has the group try to take on the form of a park bench. After seemingly doing a decent job at first, they eventually fail to support the weight of somewhat heavier people. After deducing humans can't take on the form of park benches, Akido finally tries to see how well they can take on the form of curling stones, and a relatively successful match is held using humans in place of stones.
