Satoshi has gone to visit his classmate Māmane at his house after school. He's there to get advice from the Electric type expert Māmane to prepare for his rematch against Kapu-Kokeko. He then incorporates Māmane's opinion in his training, and he and his Pokémon feel this is getting good results. But then Kapu-Kokeko suddenly appears.

-----

Satoshi wants to defeat the legendary Pokémon Kapu-Kokeko, which he has once battled against and lost to, so after school he has gone to his Electric type expert classmate Māmane's house. He trains at Māmane's house, which gives him and Pikachu further confidence in their chances. And then Kapu-Kokeko appears before them.

BATTLES: Satoshi re-challenges Kapu-Kokeko!!!

The mysterious Pokémon that gave Satoshi a Z-Ring once he arrived at Melemele Island once again appears! Is it to check Satoshi's strength?! Their second battle will soon begin!!

Kapu-Kokeko:
It has watched over Satoshi ever since he arrived in the Alola region. It is also known as the god of fights.

When battling, it spreads out an "Electric Terrain" that gives Electric type Pokémon the advantage!


It watches over Satoshi?! Another battle with Kapu-Kokeko!!
(start of this sentence is cut off) why did it give Satoshi the Z-Ring? What is the reason it watches over him? Will we get the answers to these questions in this battle...?!

Their previous battle:
Pikachu's Z-Move didn't work on it?!

Satoshi and Pikachu had just received the Z-Ring. They had no idea how to unleash Sparking Gigavolt!

After they fired off the Z-Move, the Electric-Z ended up shattering.



These are the two keys to victory for Satoshi!
This battle is different from their previous one? Satoshi challenges Kapu-Kokeko after having received two power-ups!!
1: A new partner is born!
Satoshi has befriended Iwanko, which lives together with him at Professor Kukui's house. It will no doubt add to Satoshi's strength!
Satoshi gains another partner to grow stronger together with!
(This story airs February 23rd!)
2: The Normal and Electric Z-Crystals!
Satoshi has passed the Island King's trial and Grand Trial and obtained two Z-Crystals! Now he attacks with his fully powered strength!
He can use one Z-Move in a battle! Which will he choose?!

Satoshi: This time we won't lose, Pikachu!!

Pikachu and Kapu-Kokeko's shocking super battle can be seen in "Intense Electric Shock Training! A Rematch with Kapu-Kokeko!!", which airs March 23rd!

BATTLES: Finish it, Iwanko! Ultra Dash Attack!!
Satoshi decides to battle Trainers at the Pokémon School. This time it's his new partner Iwanko's turn to shine! Claim victory in an instant with a Z-Move!

Satoshi: Let's use our fully powered strength, Iwanko!!

Iwanko:
It trained against wild Pokémon in order to grow stronger. It's also very friendly with Satoshi!

Dorobanko:
It's small, but very strong! It's a Ground type Pokémon.

Hiroki:
Dorobanko's Trainer. Haven't we seen him before somewhere...?


Ultra Dash Attack is the super powerful Normal Type Z-Move!
It is unleashed with the help of the Normal-Z, which Satoshi got from the Totem Pokémon Dekagoose!

Iwanko and Dorobanko's battle will also air March 23rd!

Hiroki:
He is voiced by Abareru-kun.

His partner:
Dorobanko
Donkey Pokémon
Type: Ground
Height: 1.0m
Weight: 110.0kg
Ability: Own Tempo/Stamina

Comic:
Abareru-kun: Hiroki is a student attending the Pokémon School. He battles Satoshi's Iwanko with his Dorobanko!

And then the dubbing day finally arrives!

The dubbing starts, with Director Tomiyasu and Sound Director Mima watching!

Will Abareru-kun manage to dub the character properly......? Wait until the Pokénchi episode that airs on February 26th and see for yourself!

Ash is confirmed to get Rockruff then?

I think he will do better here againt Tapu Koko, but he still won't beat it

About time, he's confirmed to finally have another Pokemon then.

Yay! So Rockruff confirmed for Ash! And it will use Breakneck Blitz as well! So Pikachu will have a rematch with Tapu Koko! I know that winning is very unlikely, but let's hope that Pikachu pushes Tapu Koko to its limits this time!

Yeah, looks like this scan basically confirms beyond any doubt that Ash is getting Rockruff in SM15!!! :D

Anyway, I'm looking forward to this battle with Tapu Koko and somewhat curious as to why it wants to battle with Ash again.

Yeah... i also don't think pikachu will beat tapu koko this time too. We are still beginning with series and a guardian deity won't lose this early

Return of the Tapu!!!!

Hopefully this episode hints why it's watching over Ash.

Wow! Very exciting stuff! :eek: Hiroki looks like Abareru kun, I knew by the time I saw his face, he was voicing him. :p

Yay!!! It's confirmed! Ash gets Rockruff and they'll train to get stronger together!! Can't wait to see the little puppy battle in action. Also, we're seeing other students battling for the first time. I liked seeing the other students doing something when it was shown in the early episodes.

Lets see how strong Ash and Pikachu have gotten since their last battle. Tapu Koko has a mission for them which we'll learn in this episode. This is some good stuff. I wonder how the intro and ending scenes will change. :)

I won't mind it if Pikachu beats Tapu Koko though.

Oh right, I sort of forgot Ash's class weren't the only students in the school.

Also, nice eyebrows, Hiroki. Kind of weird he's using Mudbray instead of Alolan Geodude. It'd be fitting.

I don't think and prefer not that Pikachu beat Tapu Koko this round. Just because he master 1-2 Z moves doesn't mean he'll win this match. Give it more time. Tapu Koko is a deity after all. Don't want to underestimate them. ;)

Either this battle ends in Ash's loss, or Tapu Koko calls off the match midway. Which one would you prefer?

That means that Rockruff joins Ash.Great!I would prefer Ash won't battle Tapu Koko only with Pikachu this time again.

Wow, this episode killed the suspense of Ash getting Rockruff or not. Good to see confirmation regardless.

Hmm, it's possible Ash can beat Tapu-Koko, or it's probably just doing extra training in a re-match. But it kind of feels too early for Ash to take down Tapu-Koko at this time.

Pikachu is the Legendary slayer after all.
