Pokémon Global Link promotions[]

On June 5, 2011, Pokémon Smash! revealed the upcoming self-titled Musical show, 「ポケモンスマッシュ!」 Pokémon Smash!. On their episode the next week, on June 12, the password for the Musical show was revealed to be 「ポケスマ!ミュージカル」 PokéSma! Musical. It was made available the next day and lasted until August 30, 2011.


  • No location data exists for Pokémon Smash! in any Fifth Pokémon generation games, as it premiered after Pokémon Black and White were released. Data for Pokémon Sunday was carried over into the Generation V games, along with the addition of a Wonder Card for it; however, neither was ever used in the Generation V games due to the premiere of Pokémon Smash! prior to event distributions.
