    Default Pokémon GetTV Discussion Thread

    As with Smash, we have decided to include a special thread for discussion on Pokémon Get☆TV so all the discussion can stay here

    We'll keep you up to date with the episodes each week. In the meantime, here's a rundown written by myself & Dephender




    What is Pokémon Smash?

    Ever since 1999, Japan has had a secondary Pokémon TV series running concurrently with the anime series. Pokémon Get☆TV is the fifth of these series, and is a bit of a different beast to its predecessor with its skits being more game-show like.

    Please note that Pokémon Get☆TV is primarily a comedy show for children promoting the franchise and showing off various new products and revelations. It occasionally shows off never-before-seen gameplay footage when demoing upcoming video games, and The Pokémon Company sometimes chooses them as the outlet to reveal certain news, but they are not, and have never been, a show focused on news, and most of the material they present as new has been promoted in other outlets earlier that week. The intended audience for these presentations are little kids who don't follow the franchise closely, not grown-ups who check Pokémon news sites multiple times a day to constantly stay up to date.

    Who are the hosts of Pokémon Get☆TV?
    Pokémon Get☆TV is run by the fictional "PokéTele" staff members, and the various hosts are divided up in differentroles akin to those on a TV show.


    Office Chief Taka
    Comedian Takahiro Suzuki, member of the comedy duo Taka & Toshi. The pleasant office chief who has a deep love for Pokémon despite his feigned ignorance

    Producer Toshi
    Comedian Toshikazu Miura, the other member of Taka & Toshi. The highly talented producer livening up the show, and Taka's short-tempered straight man.

    Director Yukito

    Acto Yukito Nishii is a new entrant into Pokémon. The young director working his hardest every day to ensure the show goes on. He's known as a spirited hunk who's just as cute as a Pokémon.

    Anchor Shoko-tan

    "Nerd idol" and singer Shoko Nakagawa's main purpose is hosting the segments centered around Pokémon news. It is said that if you need to know anything about Pokémon, leave it to her.

    AD Chespin

    A novice Assistant Director who's still young and inexperienced, but despite all the trouble he causes, his passion for the show is second to none.



    What does Pokémon Get☆TV Cover?
    To be added

    When does Pokémon Get☆TV air?
    Pokémon Get☆TV airs on TV Tokyo every Sunday at 7:30 AM Japanese time. There is unfortunately no legal way to watch the show outside Japan, but our friends at Pocketmonsters.net has an up-to-date episode guide with pictures and in-depth summaries of most episodes.
