Get Inspired! Let's Solve a Poké Riddle!! (Japanese: ひらめきゲット!Let's ポケなぞ!! Get Inspired! Let's Solve a Poké Riddle!!) is a segment in the anime's Pokémon Journeys: The Series beginning in JN003, replacing the Poké Problem segment of Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon. Beginning in JN139, the name of the segment is updated to be Get Inspired! Let's Solve a Poké Riddle!! - Episode Paldea (Japanese: ひらめきゲット!Let's ポケなぞ!! パルデア編 Get Inspired!

The position of the question and answer segments has changed between episodes:

  • From JN003 to JN015, the question is presented for 20 seconds at the very beginning of the episode, before the cold opening. Both the question and the answer are presented for 35 seconds at the very end, after the post-credits commercial break.
  • From JN016 to JN025, the question is presented for 35 seconds before the post-credits commercial break. The answer is presented for 20 seconds after the post-credits commercial break, with the question no longer being repeated.

  • From JN133 to JN135, the question is only presented on the official anipoke_PR Twitter account one day after the airing. The answer is posted there two days after the airing.
  • For JN136, the question is presented for 20 seconds at the very beginning of the episode, before the cold opening. Both the question and the answer are presented for 35 seconds at the very end, after the post-epilogue commercial break.
  • Beginning in JN139, the question is presented for 35 seconds before the ending theme. The answer is presented for 20 seconds after the post-credits commercial break.
