Lana in 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. The question relates to a highlight or fact revealed in the episode itself. 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.
