The official Japanese Twitter account informed people of a new version of the ending Supereffective Type in a promotional tweet on September 17th, 2021.

Supereffective Type Dance Version - Press Release


The TV animation Pocket Monsters, which airs every Friday at 6:55 p.m. on the TV Tokyo network, has produced a dance version of the song Supereffective Type, which is currently used in the ending! The ending video of the Supereffective Type Dance Version will be aired at the end today's episode, PM2019 81 A Clash?! BluePoké Maniacs!

Choreographer MIKIKO created the "Supereffective Dance" based on the song "Supereffective Type", which is a memorizing song for all 18 types of Pokémon. "In this dance music video, Pikachu and a dancer who looks like a "future Pokémon researcher", sings and dance to the song Supereffective Type.

In addition, the "I danced the Supereffective Dance" project will be held! The selected videos will be featured in the ending of the upcoming TV animation Pocket Monsters! 

Comments from MIKIKO!


When I first heard the song "Supereffective Type", I thought it was like a textbook for people who don't know anything about Pokémon to learn about it, so I thought of the choreography as if I were a Pokémon researcher. Since the theme of the song was "a Pokémon researcher in the future," I included some mannequin-like movements and strange robot-like movements.

The song has a good tempo and groove, so if you connect the meaning of the lyrics to the meaning of the dance, and learn the song while humming it, you will find it easier to dance. I hope you will enjoy the song and dance in front of the TV!

She is also highly regarded in the media art scene both in Japan and abroad.

CoroCoro Comic's Official website posted an article about this episode just before the original airing on September 17th, 2021. They also tweeted about the page on the official CoroCoro Comic Twitter account to promote it.

It's almost time for Anipoke! So blue! It's too blue! Is this "bluest" episode in Anipoke history?


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! What do you think of when you hear the word "blue"? The sky, the ocean, the earth...? 


In today's Anipoke, this question is answered by Zenigame! or Golduck! and so on. There will be a "Blue Pokémaniac" who will answer this question with the name of a blue Pokémon! Go got a blue Biriridama in Kuchiba City in the Kanto Region! Go was happy to see a rare alternate-colored Pokémon, but then a mysterious young man walks in!


▲ He dives into the blue Biriridama that Go got! But that Pokémon is dangerous if you provoke it...!


▲ Biriridama big explosion!

The name of this young man who suddenly exploded on the scene is Abel. He's a self-proclaimed Blue Pokémon fanatic from the Kalos region, or "Blue Pokémaniac" for short, and he looks like a dangerous guy!

The reason Abel came to the Kanto region is to participate in Blue Life, an activity related to blue Pokémon, and his phone is filled with plans for Blue Life...!  And with Abel's strong push, Satoshi, Go, and Koharu enter the dazzling world of Blue Life...!


▲ The reason why Abel jumped on Biriridama was because it was a BluePoké.


▲ A cafe where the host is a blue Pokémon fanatic! The store is full of blue Pokémon!


▲ The three of them are slightly taken back by Abel's energy. Is it's true that if they met someone like this, they might turn pale?!

While Abel is indulging in his fantasies at the Blue Poké photo exhibition he visited during his blue activities, a mysterious young man interferes with him! 

Yes, this young man is also a Blue Poké fanatic! The two seem to have a rivalry as they both believe that they are the true blue Pokémaniac! (Suit yourself!)


▲ The two partners are Futachimaru and Nyaonix. Of course they're blue!


▲ Satoshi and his friends are baffled by two people fighting over a limited edition product. (and the shopkeeper)

The Rocket Gang was watching the scene. They came up with a plan to take advantage of the Blue Pokémaniac's insane behavior. Hmm? Come to think of it... didn't the Rocket Gang have blue Pokémon too...?


▲ Blue...! If they use Sonansu, can they can grab the heart of the blue PokéManiacs!?

For the rest of the story, check out today's Anipoke!
