Magazine scans have revealed the titles for the 131st and 132nd episodes of the Diamond & Pearl anime series. Full Battle! Shinji vs. Satoshi!! 「フルバトル! シンジ VS サトシ!!」 will be a two-part episode and is scheduled to air on June 11 and 18 on TV Tokyo.


The episodes will feature a battle at Eichi Lake between the main character, Satoshi, and his rival, Shinji. Shinji will be using his newly evolved Booburn against Satoshi's Pikachu.

This episode will mark their first full battle, as their battles before were usually interrupted or delayed. This will also be Booburn's debut in a TV episode. It was first seen in a cameo in the 11th movie, Giratina and the Sky's Bouquet: Shaymin, under the ownership of Kōki.
