The Third Fairy! Potpourri is a Cute Baby! (第3の妖精!ポプリはかわいい赤ちゃんです!! Daisan no Yōsei! Popuri wa Kawaī Akachan desu!!?) is the 20th episode for the season Heartcatch Pretty Cure! and also the 312th episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall.


Tsubomi is asked to model alongside Momoka when the younger model suddenly quits. As this is going on, Potpourri is born and attempts to protect the Tree of Hearts.


The episode starts with Chypre and Coffret sleeping on Coupe, when suddenly his heart marking started shining. The fairies took out the shining Heart Pot.

Meanwhile, at the Heart Tree, a yellow fairy appears.

At the Desert Apostles' hideout, Dune contacts Sabaku. He mentions something that helped Cure Flower to defeat him back then and they must find it. The clue is at the Heart Tree, so Sabaku sent Dark Cure to look for it.

At Fairy Drop, Momoka suggests that Tsubomi should model with her because the model who was playing her little sister suddenly dropped and is around Tsubomi's height.

Back at the Heart Tree, the yellow fairy was playing when the Heart Tree told it to hide. Dark Cure appears near it, but the fairy created a shield to protect it. Dark Cure realized that there is a fairy inside and Sabaku told her to capture it because it might be the clue Dune was talking about. Dark Cure tried destroying the shield and almost did that when the Heart Tree told the fairy to escape. She did this and the Heart Tree disappeared. Dark Cure wanted to chase it, but Sabaku told her to look for the Heart Tree because the fairy probably flew to where the Cures are, and this is Sasorina and the others' job. He calls the trio, but Sasorina already went hunt the Pretty Cure on her own.

Meanwhile, in the photo session, Momoka tries making Tsubomi look good when she notices Karin, the girl who was supposed to be her little sister, watching the photo session. All three girls ran out while Karin was hiding, angry that she was replaced.

The fairy was flying over Kibougahana and crying. Chypre and Coffret heard it and went out.

Karin recalls the time Momoka told her she was an attention-hog a while back. She got angry and claimed that because Momoka was born with her talents so she can't understand her. Momoka tells the same story to Tsubomi and Erika, and mentions that Karin has a lot of talent - but she just wanted to give her some advice. The staff also agrees with how much they wish for Karin to continue to work with them.

Karin was angrily walking on the street when Sasorina found her. She makes a mannequin Desertrian from her wilting Heart Flower. The Desertrian heads to the studio for Momoka as the fairies return and told everything to Tsubomi and Erika.

Transforming into Pretty Cure, Blossom and Marine quickly fight against the Desertrian and were about to defeat it, but Kumojacky and Cobraja caught them. They threw the Cures to the wall and prepared to finish them when the fairy used her shield to save them. Chypre and Coffret explained that the fairy was born from the Heart Tree and she introduced herself as Potpourri. While the Cures were squeeing over her cuteness, Sasorina ordered the Desertrian to attack. Marine defeated the Desertrian with Blue Forte Wave.

The girls find Karin and bring her back to Momoka and the rest of the staff. When they tell her how much they worried about her, she apologizes and starts to cry.

A bit later, Tsubomi realizes that if the third fairy was born, that means the third Cure is here.
