Beware of the Cute Student Teacher! (イケてる実習生に気をつけろ！ "Iketeru Jisshūsei ni ki wo Tsukete!"?), dubbed Who's the New TA? in the English dub, is the 3rd episode of the season Futari wa Pretty Cure, and also the 3rd episode of Pretty Cure franchise overall.
The episode begins with the Dark King having a discussion with Pisard, who explains that he is trying to get the energy from the Pretty Cure's town. Dark King strikes with a flash of lighting, stating that Pisard can easily be replaced and that he better remember this, making Pisard promise that he will not fail next time.
Meanwhile at the Wakabadai Station, Nagisa is with her friends Shiho and Rina while thinking about how Pisard came again to try and take Mepple and Mipple. She also begins to think about Fuji when he suddenly appears behind her. Thinking that he was talking to her, she begins to blush and panic, only to see that it was his friend behind her saying he was late. The two boys run right past her and say nothing.
At Verone Acadamy, the Principal and Vice Principal are discussing how nice the weather is. Stating that is is spring, though still a bit chilly. He goes on to ask if the Student Teachers will be coming the following day and begins to think about their age.
In the classroom the students are being given the itinerary for the field trip coming up next week when Yoshimi mentions one of the girls will have to be the leader. While she is thinking this over, Nagisa and her friends are discussing the student teachers. However, Nagisa gets caught by Yoshimi and after asking her if she was listening, she decides to put her in charge of being the field trip organizer. Nagisa attempts to protest, until realizing it won't do any good. As Yoshimi begins to think about how poorly it was to choose her, she decides to ask Honoka to help Nagisa with the pamphlets for the field trip.
Later, having just changed after lacrosse practice, Rina mentions how she plans to run home quick and then to the hairdresser. Shiho asks if it's because of the new student teacher coming the following day and decides it may be worth doing while Nagisa tries to tell them they are getting too excited when Honoka walks past them, causing Mepple and Mipple to wiggle about. They group together while denying having heard any weird voices, then together the two girls walk off while discussing the field trip - leaving a confused Shiho and Rina to watch them.
As the two walk home, Nagisa quickly scolds Mepple and asks when he got up. They arrive at Honoka's home and she invites Nagisa in; just to be greeted by a big dog. After Nagisa comments on how quiet the place is, Honoka explains to her that her parents work outside of the country. They reach her room and Honoka leaves for a moment while Mepple and Mipple come out to see each other. When she returns she decides to ask them how their alternating forms work. Mepple and Mipple explain that in their home world they always look like stuffed animals, but in this world they are reduced to cellphone-like beings in order to save energy. So only for a little while each day, they can be their true forms.
Mepple then goes on to explain the Prism Stones, a special life stone with the power of creation. The Garden of Light was protected by the seven Stones, but when the Dusk Zone attacked, they stole five of them. So they were given the remaining two and it is the Pretty Cure's mission to protect the holders of the Prism Stones and gain the remaining five. Suddenly, the story comes to a stop as Honoka's grandmother arrives with cookies and is introduced to Nagisa. After a moment she proceeds to leave and notices how well of a pair the two girls make.
Meanwhile in town, Pisard is spying on the people as they walk about. Thinking about when he met Nagisa and Honoka a few days earlier, he then begins to plot his next move.The following day, a mysterious stranger wanders the locker area when a man finds him and ask if he is a student teacher. He admits to being surprised, as he was told the Student Teacher wouldn't be coming due to a cold, but he takes him outside where the introduction ceremony is being held. They introduce the strange man to everyone, but he pays them little to no mind, using this time to scan the crowd in search of the Pretty Cure. While he doesn't notice the attention many of the females are giving him, he happens to spot Nagisa.
After the mini-assembly, Mr. Kazama (really Pisard) walks with Yoshimi, who introduces herself to him as his mentor. Her feelings for him soon become evident, as she ask if he thinks this is fate they met, and upon realizing he can use this, he asks her to bring Nagisa to him.
During class, she stops to get Nagisa to come to the gym with her, while Pisard is waiting for them. The Vice Principal comes by to ask where his students are, but after the new student teacher looks at him, he immediately retreats out of fear. When Nagisa arrives to the gym, she notices the teacher from earlier. He then demands the Prism Stone and pulls out Miss Yoshimi while stating he can't guarantee she will be safe if he doesn't get what he wants. Nagisa tries to tell him she doesn't have it, but he aims one of his razor sharp nails at Yoshimi and tells Nagisa to quit pretending.
Suddenly Honoka shows up, holding both Mepple and Mipple. She goes to Yoshimi after Nagisa is knocked down while Mipple tells her and Nagisa to transform. After doing so, Pisard forms a Zakenna which proceeds to possesse the nearby gym device and throws multiple things at the girls. They just barely dodge and climb the nearby gym ropes when they notice a hypnotized Yoshimi walking along the bars on top. The girls quickly try to reach her as basketballs fly at them, trying to knock them off.
While Nagisa climbs down with their teacher, Honoka defends them from the basketballs, but ends up taking one to the stomach. They reach the floor as the Zakenna possesses the stage curtains and they spring to life, wrapping the three females in the cloth before throwing them at a wall. Cure Black and Cure White use Marble Screw on the Zakenna and the small stars remaining proceed to run away.
Meanwhile in class, Shiho begins to notice that Honoka, Nagisa, and their teacher have been gone for sometime now. Rina, however, couldn't care-less, since she is happy just not to have class.
Back in the gym, Nagisa and Honoka try to wake up Yoshimi. After she regains consciousness, she asks why they are not in class. Honoka quickly tries to explain that they are not skipping, without revealing what actually happened - but she doesn't buy it and pushes the girls back to class. While this goes on, Honoka remarks to Nagisa that she doesn't seem to remember anything as the episode ends.
- The first episode that Nagisa sees Honoka's house.
- We learn why Mepple and Mipple have their different forms.
- This is the first of many times the enemy disguises themselves as someone else.
- Pisard's disguise name while in his human form is "Mr. Kazama Yuuichi"
