It's almost time for Anipoke! Darkrai suddenly appears! Two consecutive weeks of "Anipoke Summer Special Episodes" start today!

pic

The anime "Pocket Monsters" will start airing soon! It airs every Friday at 6:55 p.m. and it is very popular! In this article, we'll introduce you to the Pokémon and characters that will appear in today's episode, as well as comments from the voice actors and director, and other Anipoke information you won't find anywhere else! Today's episode and next week's episode will be as gorgeous as the movie version, with Legendary and Mythical Pokémon!

In the Sinnoh region, people are having nightmares and can't sleep! The members of the Sakuragi Research Institute suspect that this is the work of some kind of Pokémon. Satoshi and Go immediately set out to investigate! 

The "Sinnoh Region" and "nightmares".... If you're a fan of Pokémon, you may have already noticed that nightmares in the Sinnoh region are generally caused by the Mythical Pokémon Darkrai! Could this series of incidents be the work of Darkrai...?

pic

▲ The people of the Sinnoh region are frustrated because they can't sleep! Fights are on the rise, and it's an emergency!

pic

▲ Satoshi and Go find out that the area where the incidents are occurring is moving, but... they also have nightmares!

Meanwhile, today is the start of summer vacation for Koharu. It was supposed to be a fun trip with the whole family, but due to her parents' work schedule, she'll be traveling alone! That's why Koharu will also be traveling to the Shinoh region, where Satoshi and Go are headed!

pic

▲ The Professor seemed to have completely forgotten about the trip.

pic

▲ Just Koharu and Eievui depart! There are sure to be all kinds of encounters waiting for them on our their journey!

As Koharu searches for a destination in the Sinnoh Region, she decides to go see a Pokémon Contest held in Hakutai City that she saw on TV! And while experiencing various things, she decides to camp in the forest that day... There, Koharu meets Satoshi's old traveling companion, Hikari!

pic

▲ It's been nine years since Hikari's last appearance!

pic

▲ Of course, Pochama's is with her!

Today's episode foreshadows the great adventures of Satoshi and Go, as well as Koharu and Hikari, but there's another twist...? I'm not sure what to make of it. A message from Matori tells the Rocket Gang that Sakaki has a direct mission for them. The mission is to "capture Darkrai and Cresselia. ...and the incident takes an unbelievable turn!

pic

▲ It's the beginning of a nightmare! Don't miss the next episode at 6:55!

Following after Iris and Shigeru, Hikari and Pochama from Pocket Monsters Diamond and Pearl will be appearing in the anime series Pocket Monsters! It's been about 9 years since I've appeared in the series, so I was nervous about whether I could play Hikari again after such a long time, but during the recording, I had a great time interacting with my partner, Pochama, and felt at ease and happy.

For those of you who are watching starting to watch the Anipoke, this will be the first time you've see Hikari but I hope you will like her as she has a sunny personality and loves Pokémon. Her Pokémon partner, Pochama, is also very cute, so please look forward to the special summer episodes and see what kind of story it will be!
Megumi Toyoguchi as Hikari
