Oogai Town is in a Big Pinch! The Lovely Pad is Born! (大貝町大ピンチ!誕生!ラブリーパッド Ōgai-chō dai pinchi! Tanjō! Raburī Paddo?) is the 31st episode of the season Doki Doki! Pretty Cure, and also the 468th episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall. 



A Corrupted Heart

The episode starts with Bel, who was eating a lollipop, joking with Leva and Gula because of their failures. Much to their annoyance, they claimed that they had another plan, which could work. Suddenly, in the town, some mysterious balls started coming, and then the balls were absorbed in the people's bodies, putting them to sleep. Meanwhile, Mana, and the others were doing experiments with their Pad, however it did not work, even if with Ai's power. With Mana becoming hungry and tired of the experiments, she invited her friends to go to her place, and eat.

Everyone dealing with their parents.

In the restaurant, Mana and Rikka saw their mothers and with surprise Aguri saw her grandmother about to go to the restaurant. Inside, the people were watching the news about the mysterious balls. All of a sudden, Mana and the others were in a panic, as soon as they saw that their parents and family members were sleeping. Then, suddenly the girls warned Mana as the ball was coming towards her, but her Lovead protected her from becoming infected. Then the TV screen became distorted and Leva and Gula appeared, explaining their plans. They said that in the main bulding in the town, a Selfish tree was made, which made the balls that could put people to sleep, and as time passed, the peoples' hearts will completely blacken and turn them into Jikochuus, bringing about destruction to their world.


The Pad broken in pieces.

The girls arrived and they, with the exception of Aguri because of her time limit, transformed. Leva and Gula fused together to fight them.  The girls started to fight, and used Lovely Force Arrow, but it was ineffective. The tree sent a powerful beam, however Cure Ace arrived on time and performed Ace Shot, however the beam was too powerful and the Cures were struck hard. After their defeat, the girls saw the fused Leva and Gula with the Pad, and watched helplessly as it broke the Pad.


Cure Heart crying out her wish.

With the broken Pad, the girls lost hope, and Cure Heart cried, finally understanding what it's like to have her home in ruins, while Leva and Gula taunt her.  The hearts of the citizens completely blacken.  However, Cure Heart brought herself to her senses and gathered the pieces. With hope left in her heart, Cure Heart said she would do everything to save the people of the town, suddenly Heart touched her heart with her hands, and cried out her wish. With the girls seeing this, the girls then gathered, saying they will never give up.  With that, the Pad started shining, as the pieces of the Pad turned into individual Magical Lovely Pads.  The Cures' strength is restored and Aguri transformed into Cure Ace once more. With their newfound weapons, they performed Lovely Straight Flush, which defeated the tree, Leva and Gula, thus breaking the curse placed over the town.


Leva and Gula with their energies taken.

Everything returned to normal and Mana, along with the other Cures and their family members, had lunch.  Meanwhile, Leva and Gula were on a hard position, as Bel drained their remaining energy into his lollipop and killing them.  As they faded away, Bel put the lollipop back into his mouth and smiled.
