Pocket-ering Monster-ing (Japanese: ポケッターリ モンスターリ Pokettāri Monsutāri) was the 13th and final ending for the Japanese original series portion of the Pokémon anime. It made its debut in EP239 and aired until EP274. It was also used as the ending to the Camp Pikachu animated short.


Pikachu rides onto the screen on a line of floating Poké Balls. It quickly leaps off as the lyrics begin and starts to dance. Pikachu dances past a wheel filled with pictures of Pokémon before encountering several groups of Pokémon that correspond to the Pokémon types mentioned in the lyrics of the song. After the song finishes describing the different Pokémon Pikachu returns to dancing in the center of floating Poké Balls. After a brief shot of a giant jigsaw puzzles depicting a Poké Ball the focus goes back to Pikachu. Pikachu is quickly joined by Togepi, a Bellsprout, a Piloswine, a Jigglypuff, a Dodrio, and finally an Unown who begin dancing as well as the credits fade out.
