One of three delayed episodes in the Best Wishes! series will finally be played after it was originally scheduled to air April 7, according to Japanese magazine Terebikun. The episode, 「ヒウンシティのつり大会！釣りソムリエ・デント登場！！」 "Fishing Conference in Hiun City! Fishing Sommelier - Dent Appears!!" will air on June 23.
The episode was delayed due to the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami shortly before the episode was supposed to debut. Two others were also postponed, and it remains unknown when, or if, they will air.
The episode will feature both forms of Basslao (Basculin) in a fishing contest in which Pokémon Sommelier Dent (Cilan) competes. The episode is set in Hiun City (Castelia City) some time after Satoshi's (Ash's) third Gym battle.
In actuality, some clips from this episode have already been played; a few scenes were featured in Dr. Ōkido's (Professor Oak's) Live Caster after the latest episode of the series.
