(Japanese: 釣りソムリエ・デント登場！ Fisher Sommelier - Dent Appears!) is the 37th episode of the Best Wishes series, and the 694th episode of the Pokémon anime. It first aired in Japan on June 23, 2011.
This episode was originally scheduled to air in Japan on April 7, 2011, as the 26th episode of the Best Wishes series, but it was postponed, along with the original BW023 and BW024, because of the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami.

- Professor Oak's Pokémon Live Caster: Scraggy
- This episode was originally supposed to be the 26th episode of the Best Wishes series and was supposed to fall in between Battling for the Love of Bug-types! and Emolga the Irresistible, formerly the 25th and 27th episodes, respectively. It was also originally titled ヒウンシティのつり大会！釣りソムリエ・デント登場！！ Fishing Conference of Hiun City! Fisher Sommelier - Dent Appears!! in Japanese before it was postponed. As they were no longer in Castelia City by the time the episode was aired, all references to the city were removed.
- Clips from this episode were first shown in the Pokémon Live Caster following BW033.
- This episode, in order to better place it between BW036 and BW038, went through a couple of minor retcons:
- All references to the gang being in Castelia City have been removed.
- The ending has been altered to show Bianca leaving the group, contradicting the two episodes following where it was intended to air, in which she is traveling with them.
- Despite the edits listed above, a couple of indications that this was an earlier episode have been left in:
- The gang were surprised to see James owning a Yamask (to the point where Ash scanned it with his Pokédex), despite having encountered it several times in previously aired episodes.
- Ash was surprised when Cilan revealed his personal fishing rod, despite having seen it in BW032, five episodes before.
- The profile of the Scraggy appearing in Professor Oak's Pokémon Live Caster has a yellow colored scale on its head instead of red.
