Lana at the beginning of the segment

Poké Problem (Japanese: ポケもんだい Pokémondai) is a question-and-answer segment in the anime's Sun & Moon series, replacing Poké TV of the XY&Z arc of the XY series. As opposed to previous segments of this format, the Poké Problem is presented in two parts; the question at the very beginning of the episode, before the cold opening, and the answer at the very end, after the credits.

Introduced in SM003, each Poké Problem is typically hosted by a student or staff member of the Pokémon School, or at other times, another main or recurring character, who presents the question and reminds the viewer to stay tuned to find out the answer. The question relates to a highlight or fact revealed in the episode itself. Sometimes, the host or hostess reads the answers and their corresponding colors aloud as well. At the end of the episode, the host reveals the answer and reviews it. Like in Poké TV, an extra scene will play after the review.

Trivia

  • The first airings of episodes with promotions, one-hour specials, and episodes that are being shown during the promotion of the movie specials do not include this segment for that episode. However, these segments were included in airings on other stations that aired the episode in delay, reruns on cable networks such as Kids Station, and VOD services (such as Amazon Video and Hulu).
  • In SM003, all the provided choices are all electronics Rotom are known to inhabit.
  • In SM099, the beginning of the problem shows Sandy in its original hairstyle, and after the end of the episode, it changes to the new hairstyle given to it by Lana.
  • In SM100, Ash doesn't give much information on Zeraora, due to the fact that in the episode, he has become separated from Rotom.
  • In SM101, the Magikarp shown was one of the options in the Poké Problem is animated as flopping about.
  • In SM107 and SM109, the options that are shown as options have a colored background representing the options of their specific color.
    • In addition, in the former episode, the guardian deities are shown inside their shells at the start of the episode, while at the end of the episode, three of them are seen out of their shells.
  • In SM111, the final option for the question in is a pun on Kakigōri, a Japanese desert, with Kiawe's Japanese name being used in place of the hiragana characters for "Kaki".
  • In SM116, all the provided choices are Mythical Pokémon that starred in movies in the XY series.
  • In SM127, all the provided choices were all some of the featured Pokémon in Zoroark: Master of Illusions.
  • In SM129, everyone except Ilima's photo changes into one where the characters are upset, due to answer to the Poké Problem being that Ilima is the favorite to win the Alola League in said episode, and not the others.
  • In SM136, the choices, order of the choices, and the answer are the exact same as SM130.
  • In SM138, Meltan's picture is replaced by that of Melmetal after the end of the episode to signify its evolution.
    • The extra scene is a reference to the format of Professor Oak's Pokémon Lecture and similar offshoots, where Professor Oak examines the Pokémon in question, usually resulting in getting comically harmed after unintentionally upsetting the Pokémon. The segment also closes with a Pokémon senryū.
