Pokémon Smash 15

Episode PicturePokémon Smash Episode 15, Takeshi & Satoshi! Defend Nibi Gym in a Tag Battle!! / The Legendary Pokémon 'Reshiram' and 'Zekrom' Appear in a Card Game Battle!? / Announcing the New Move for Victini, Which Will Appear in the Movie! (タケシ&サトシ! タッグバトルでニビジムを守れ!! / ポケモンカードバトルに伝説のポケモン「レシラム」「ゼクロム」が登場!?/映画に登場するビクティニの新しいワザを公開!), aired on Sunday in Japan.

The episode begins with Golgo, Shoko, and Robert wondering where Professor Red was as he hadn't showed up yet. Just then, Professor Red runs in and greets everyone. Professor Red had a deck of Pokémon Trading Cards and he is excited to learn about the game.

Golgo introduces this weeks rerun episode as part of the Pokémon Library and Akiyama announces this weeks theme, Cannot win with Power alone! (パワーだけでは勝てなう!). This weeks rerun episode was Takeshi & Satoshi! Defend Nibi Gym in a Tag Battle!! (タケシ&サトシ! タッグバトルでニビジムを守れ!!) from the Advanced Generation series. A full summary of that episode is available in the episode guide. Red said the go-to line 'OK! Pokémon Library!' to start the repeat episode.

After the repeat episode, the International girls arrive and say they will be going out to do a task dealing with the Pokémon Card Game. Robert from the Adventure Division quickly take exception to that as they believe that's what the Adventure Division is for. Hana takes exception to their complaining and tells them to "Shut up!". Yamamoto then announces they will be doing a Pokémon Card Battle using the latest BW set.

The teams were the same as the last card battle. Hana, Misaki, and Yamamoto were on one team and Maria, Baba, and Akiyama were on the other team. The International Group and Adventure Group meet up with Teacher Takashima (タカシマ先生) who was once again their teacher for this segment of the show.

This time Teacher Takashima lets them design their deck the way they wanted before the battle. At first Maria's team had 12 Pokémon and only 3 energy cards. He then points out that some of the cards they had chosen had attacks like Enbuoh's (エンブオー) Flare Drive (フレアドライブ) that required 4 energy cards to use. He then looked at Hana's selections and noticed her team had a better Pokémon card to energy card ratio but they didn't have enough Fire energy cards to use Reshiram's (レシラム) Blue Fire (あおいほのお) move which requires at least 2 fire energy.

Both teams took Teacher Takashima's advice and rebuilt their decks. Maria's team went from 3 energy cards to 9 but reduced the Pokémon cards from 12 to 6. Hana's team added a couple more Fire energy. They each shuffled their decks and placed them on the large mat. Hana's team went first and the first card they picked up was Reshiram (レシラム BC 013/053). Hana states in English: "It's a good one!" and they put it on their bench. They also attach a Fire energy to Yamamoto Mijumaru (ミジュマル WC 011/053) who is their currently active battle Pokémon.

Hana attached a Grass Energy to Akiyama Monmen (モンメン BC 004/053) giving it enough energy to use Cotton Guard (コットンガード) which deals 10 damage. Akiyama got a cotton ball and a tissue to tickle Yamamoto's nose to imitate the move. Hana then picked up a water energy and gave it to Yamamoto Mijumaru giving him enough energy to use Shell Blade (シェルブレード) which does 20 damage plus 20 more damage if a coin flip is heads. Hana flipped the coin and got head. Yamamoto hit Akiyama with a stuffed pillow that looked like a shell dealing Akiyama Monmen 40 damage but only 10 damage points counted due to Monmen's resistance to water attacks and a -10 modifier from using Cotton Guard.

Maria's team picked up a Lightning Energy card and gave it to Baba Zekrom (ゼクロム WC 020/053). Maria also evolved Akiyama into Erufuun (エルフーン BC 005/053). They used Helping Hand (てだすけ) which allows them to choose 1 Basic Energy card from their deck and attach it to their Benched Pokémon. They chose a Lightning Energy card and applied it to Zekrom. Hana picked up Futachimaru (フタチマル WC 012/053) and evolved Yamamoto and said it was one of their 'Best Card's. Yamamoto uses Aqua Tail (アクアテール) which does 30 damage plus 10 more damage for each heads they flip. Hana rolled a heads and Yamamoto hit Akiyama with a tail attached to his back that was drenched with water but it only dealt 20 damage in the end. Maria decided to switch Akiyama and Baba and applied another Lightning Energy.

Maria instructed Baba to use Zekrom's Lightning Strike (らいげき) attack which deals 120 damage to the opponent and 40 damage to itself. Baba touched Yamamoto's nose while holding an electric conductor and it shocked Yamamoto to simulate the Lightning Strike attack. That knocked out Yamamoto's Futachimaru (フタチマル WC 012/053) and gave Maria's team the win.

As announced earlier in the week on the official Pocket Monsters movie website, Shoko-tan announced the full title for the 14th Pocket Monsters movie. Victini and the Dark Hero - Zekrom (ビクティニと黒き英雄ゼクロム) will debut in Japanese theaters on July 16th, 2011. To celebrate the new movie, a Victini that knows the move V-Generate (Vジェネレート) will be distributed. Full distribution details have yet to be announced.

During the Marketing Divisions segment, Elite Four (四天王) member Gima (ギーマ) was unveiled along with his Pokémon: Zuruzukin (ズルズキン), Waruvial (ワルビアル), Kirikizan (キリキザン) and Lepardas (レパルダス). Shoko-tan also revealed the legendary Pokémon: Cobalon (コバルオン), Terrakion (テラキオン), and Virizion (ビリジオン).

A Trainer's Tale

Your adventure as a Trainer will take you all across the Unova region, where you'll encounter many Pokémon, as well as many competitive Trainers. Before heading out to discover all that being a Trainer has to offer, you'll first meet a few nice folks in your own hometown. The small town you live in doesn't have much to offer for an eager Trainer. Your adventure begins when Professor Juniper delivers a gift to you and your two best friends, Cheren and Bianca! There's also a note attached to the gift, signed by Professor Juniper. Professor Juniper has one more gift for you when you visit her Pokémon Lab: a Pokédex! Your mom offers encouragement and advice as you start your journey! Now it's time for you and your friends to start your long and exciting adventure together!

Friends

Cheren: Cheren is one of your childhood friends who will start a journey with you. His goal is to become the Pokémon Champion!
Bianca: Bianca is a childhood friend who, despite her father's initial reluctance, goes on an adventure with you. You'll meet up with her frequently.
Fennel: Professor Juniper's friend will hand you the C-Gear, a device with a variety of communication features. Fennel needs your help to complete her research.
N:You'll run into N quite a lot around the Unova region, and he'll often challenge you to battle when you meet. You'll have to discover who this mysterious character truly is and uncover his ultimate goal.

Changes in Unova

Some of the locations in the Unova region are different depending on whether you're playing Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version. Even some of the towns have a different visual appeal depending on which version you play. Although they occupy the same location on the map, in Pokémon Black Version you'll find Black City, while in Pokémon White Version you'll head into White Forest.

Black City has many tall buildings for you to roam around and through. There are also plenty of people to talk to, as you'd expect in a big city. This city looks magnificent with its concrete and steel in one version. But in the other version, the same city is filled with ivy, flowers, and cobblestones. In the verdant White Forest, you'll experience the serenity of nature. But there are still important people for you to meet deep within the forest.

friends

New Ways to Battle

There are all kinds of new ways to direct your Pokémon in battle, including Random Matchups and Triple Battles.

Triple Battles: Get ready to engage in wild three-on-three matches as Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version introduce Triple Battles! Each party has three Pokémon in battle at a time! Your Pokémon can attack only the foe in front of it or one adjacent to that Pokémon with normal-range attacks. The Pokémon in the center can attack all three of the opponent's Pokémon. But that Pokémon can also be attacked by all three opposing Pokémon! Use the Shift command on your Pokémon to swap it to the center position. The Pokémon you moved will be hit by the attack that was intended for the Pokémon that was previously there. Only the Pokémon in the center can use attacks that hit all three Pokémon at once. There's a new Ability that prevents damage from your other Pokémon's attacks, Telepathy. There's also a new move that prevents the effects of ranging attacks that would normally affect all of your Pokémon!
