OP/ED List

Weekly Pokémon Broadcasting Station
Episode Actors Regions
This week, the Weekly Pokémon Broadcasting Station shows another variety show.
The theme of this episode's installment of Strange and Good Pokémon Plays' is "Intense", showing the following clips.
* Koduck's battle against Parshen, a battle that proved quite intense for Koduck, which accidentally hurt itself on Parshen's spikes, hurt its hand while trying to use a Scratch attack, and strained its brain trying to remember its other attacks without luck, all while the spectators laugh intensely. Finally, Kasumi gets even more intense, trying to give Koduck a headache with the help of her bike.
* Lizardo's supposedly faux battle with Paras, where Lizardo gets an intense look in its eyes, and attacks Paras with intense force, refusing to listen to Satoshi, and finally attacks its own trainer in an intense example of intensely bad behavior.
* Satoshi's Pokémon League match where he got attacked by a giant monster ball sucking him in... which turned out to be just a dream, but a pretty intense one at that. And then, Barrierd intensely assaults Satoshi's face with its vacuum.
* Junsa's proclamation of her love for Takeshi... which really was Takeshi himself, armed with a voice changing machine. Reality is intensely much harsher.
* Kenji's Strike's intense demonstration of its intense power... until it turned out this intense display made it intensely tired.
* Kasumi's intense cooking, her attempt at making food herself while Takeshi was sick. She put intense amounts of energy into it, but the resulting stew was only fit for the most intensely hardened stomach.

In this week's installment of "Pokemon de English", we learn the word "Yummy", the English word for おいしい, using clips from episode 211.

Finally, in the Request Corner, we answer the television viewer question "How did Satoshi get Chicorita?", showing us how Satoshi met and battled it, took it to the Pokemon Center, and rescued it from the Rocket Gang after they took off with it, before eventually bonding with it as they made their way back to safety, after which it finally decided it wanted to go along with him all from episode 128, before ending with clips from various other episodes, showing its love for Satoshi both as a Chicorita and as a Bayleaf.
