Following hot on the heels of last week's press release, which provided titles and descriptions for the first three episodes of the upcoming Aim to be a Pokémon Master arc of the Pokémon Anime, the February 2023 issue of Animage magazine has provided titles for an additional two episodes airing in the beginning of February.

Friday, February 3rd: Beartic's Sigh! 「ツンベアーのためいき!」

Friday, February 10th: Get fired up! Squirtle Fire Department!!「もえよ!ゼニガメしょうぼうだん!!」

Unfortunately, Animage only published the titles for these episodes, and did not provide any description about their plots. While it seems clear from the February 10th episode that the Squirtle Squad should be making a return, it's not as explicitly clear which of the notable appearances of Beartic in the Pokémon anime to date that the February 3rd episode might be harking back to. Given that this series is supposed to involve Ash meeting old friends from his journeys, we personally suspect this episode might be related to Episode 33 of Best Wishes, with Iris's battle against the "Dragon Buster" Georgia and her Beartic.

We'll provide further updates once more information is available.
