(ポケモン・ザ・ムービー! / インターナショナル部とアドベンチャー部がポケモンのカード探しで対決!/ポケモンバトルはしょこたん部長/グッズプレゼント企画), aired today in Japan.

The episode begins Shoko-tan holding a present and Zoroark and Mijumaru looking on. TIM and Robert walk in and notice that Shoko-tan is attempting to deliver a present. They ask her about the present and she says that she cooked it herself. This brings back bad memories of the previous food she has cooked.

Golgo decides to quickly change the topic of conversation and introduces this weeks rerun episode as part of the Pokémon Library and Yamamoto announces this weeks theme 'Put your mind to it!' (みんなちゃんと寝ろよ). This weeks rerun episode was Pokémon the Movie! (ポケモン・ザ・ムービー!) from the original Japanese series. A full summary is available in the episode guide. Red said the go-to line 'Okay! Pokémon Library!' to start the repeat episode.

After the repeat episode, the International girls show up and say 'PokéMorning!" to everyone. Shoko-tan had hidden the present and Misaki manages to find it behind the cardboard cutout of the President of Pokémon Enterprise. They open the present to find out that it is Carrot Jelly (にんじんぜりー). Misaki is the first to try it thinking that it would be good but she quickly realizes that it doesn't taste very good. Hana tries it and almost faints and says 'Oh my god!". As they take Hana back to her seat Yamamoto notices that Mijumaru got a present from Shoko and Yamamoto wanted to protect Mijumaru so he quickly took the present, opened it and began eating it so that Mijumaru would be spared. It turned out that it was a Wasabi Rolls (わさびたっぷり チュロス) and it caused Yamamoto to faint onto the floor.

Baba introduced the Video tape recording of the International and Adventure Division's Pokémon Card Searching Showdown. The two teams were sent into the house to find hidden cards from the newest Pokémon Card Game BW set. The cards were hidden throughout the house. The teams were trying to find cards that had a lot of hit points and were related to get double the points from the combined HP.
