Pretty Cure Exposed!? (プリキュアがばれちゃった!? Purikyua ga Barechatta!??) is the 9th episode of the season Yes! Pretty Cure 5, and also the 154th episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall.

Synopsis

Masuko Mika, a nosy school news reporter wishes to learn more about Pretty Cure and decides to trail after the girls, noticing how strangely they behave.

Summary

At school, Nozomi, Rin, and Urara walk to class until they happen to spot the Cinq Lumieres Newspaper Board. They chat about how interesting it is, along with its reputation, but when they look they find out that it only detailed what they ate for lunch. Rin gets angry that the news had to add stuff like this for news, but the other two seem to be fine with it, causing Rin to express disbelief.

Suddenly, the Cinq Lumieres News Chief Editor, Mika, who prefers to be known as Masukomi, appears. She wanted to interview Urara, as the schools first idol. Just as Urara was going to answer her question, Rin pushes her away and starts to complain over the published article before them, then reminds her that she needs permission to post their pictures and summaries in the news like that. Mika denies having done anything wrong and tells her that getting the entire school information is a great mission for the Cinq Lumieres News and she must be quick. All of the students surrounding them seem to be impressed - but not Rin. She is shocked that her best friend would be though, despite the added information about her.

With that, Mika continues to try to speak to Urara but Rin is quick to try to tell Urara not to do it. She doesn't see the problem though and ends up listing quite embarrassing information along with the huge amount of food. Mika asks if she has a boyfriend and she says she doesn't, but she has someone she looks up to. After revealing it to be Nozomi, Mika and the others are shocked while Nozomi seems embarrassed.

At lunch, Mika is spying behind the bush and taking photos and writing notes on what Urara is eating with the group. Otaka came over and tells her that if keeps doing this, it'll get old really soon. Mika admits that she is right, but tells her that she doesn't know else to do, rejecting Otaka's suggestions of fashion or clothing. When she looked at the group, she realizes all of the most popular students are included, then wonders why Nozomi is with them - since she isn't popular. Otaka says it's nice to have friends who are in different classes and left, leaving Mika to express curiosity about why Nozomi hangs out with them. She notices something fishy and takes a picture. Rin had asked Nozomi to get her a plate, and Komachi a straw because she's the leader. Nozomi admits that being leader is hard work, and Karen compares it to being the Student President. Nozomi was going to get the plate and straw, but Mika is in awe over what she heard. Among all of the amazing people, someone like Nozomi is the leader.

In Nightmare HQ, Bunbee scolded Arachnea and told her that Kawarino came the other day and told her that he said that they must get the Dream Collet. He doesn't blame Arachnea, but they must defeat the Pretty Cures and get the Dream Collet. Arachnea told him that she will get the Dream Collet.

The Cures and Students gather around the News Board to see an article wrote about them, wondering why they are always together. Mika joins the girls and reminds their various roles; with Karen the Student President, Komachi is part of the Library Committee, Rin is an all-around Sports Star, and Urara is a popular idol. They are all popular, so she wonders why Nozomi is so close to them all. She points out the mysterious person on the paper, her source, but Rin is quickly able to recognize them as Otaka. Mika says, according to her, the five have lunch together almost every day, but just before they got together, strange things occurred at the school, leaving her to think there is a connection. The girls start to get nervous by this point and worry that she figured them out, but when Urara says something to confirm what Mika thought, she is scolded by Rin. Mika asks Karen about her connection with the other girls and Karen anxiously seems not to know what to say. Mika criticizes her for this, given her sharp tongue, but Karen is too nervous to say anything. Mika then recites the motto for the School Paper and refuses to give up until she finds out what is going on.

She moves onto Nozomi to ask her the same thing, and brings up the "Leader" comment she heard. She asks Nozomi what she is the leader of, and nervously, Nozomi says that she is the Leader of their Fictional but almost true team called "The Allies of Justice". Mika ends up yelling at her to be more clear about her answer, but Karen is quick to save Nozomi by giving Mika an ambiguous answer.

After school, Mika spies on the girls walking home, then spots Mr. Kokoda with them. She expresses curiosity and tries to take a picture until a truck blocks the camera view and she misses seeing Mr. Kokoda take off. He is revealed to have changed into his true form and is with the girls, in Nozomi's arms. Nozomi asks Coco if its okay for him to do this in public, and he comments that being in his human form wears him out. Mika chases after the girls when they suddenly hear a voice, causing Coco to quickly say it is a Pinky. Mika hides behind a wall and waits to see what is going on, but because they're too far away it nearly impossible. A bell pops out of Nozomi's Pinky Catch and Coco plays it to lure it over, causing the girls to express happiness.

Mika continued to follow them until they stopped at Natts House. She looked through the shop window and spots Karen and Komachi, and wonders what they are doing. She spots Coco and Natts posing as dolls, but when their tails start to move Mika expresses shock. She enters the store and asks the girls what they are doing, and quickly Karen lies by saying they are just browsing. It's only a coincidence that she happened to see them all there together. Komachi explains the shop to Mika and she decides to get a closer look at the "dolls", noting that they moved. Rin and Nozomi claim they are only toys that move and clap, and Nozomi attempts to show her by having Coco clap after she does - but Natts stands there until Coco gets a reaction by tickling his tail, to tell him to move. Annoyed by this, he attacks Coco until the girls can separate them. To get Mika to stop being curious, they claim they can do a lot of amazing things. Suspicious, Mika asks about the employees, but the girls reveal they aren't there. Mika is confused by this, saying that it would be weird to let customers in if they aren't there, but she takes off and grabs a few pictures from outside.

Suddenly, Arachnea appears behind her. Mika asks if she is an employee, while Arachnea asks if she is a friend of those girls, and she says she is.

The girls hear Mika scream from inside the shop and run outside as they witness Arachnea kidnap Mika. The girls give chase to a creepy, abandoned mall, with her on the working escalator and Mika as her hostage. She demands they give her the Dream Collet or Mika will pay the price, causing them to express shock as Mika asks Arachnea who she is, and what the Dream Collet is. Arachnea grabs the Recorder she had and tosses it aside, then changes into her true form. Nozomi tried to transform, but Rin stopped her because Mika is here and they can't transform in front of her or else she would find out the truth after everything they did. Karen and Urara point out they don't have much of a choice, since Mika could get hurt.

They watch as Mika takes out her camera to take a picture of Arachnea, who grabs it and throws a mask onto it to change it into a Kowaina. Mika is quick to free herself from Arachnea's grasp and hides behind a column, clearly frightened. As she covers her eyes the girls use this time to transform, which alerts Mika when they all speak after finishing. She observes the Pretty Cure and watches as Arachnea orders the Kowaina to attack them. They dodge the attacks, but get distracted knowing Mika is watching them and worry that she somehow found out.

The battle soon gets rough, with Arachnea using her web to lasso Mika and start to squeeze her. Cure Dream yelled at Arachnea that she has nothing to do with this, but Arachnea demands the Dream Collet, with Cure Dream refusing. Arachnea continues to squeeze Mika and attempt to reach her - only for the Kowaina to try to attack them. They are unable to get closer and start to worry. They quickly devise a plan, with Dream, Aqua, and Mint battling Arachnea while Rouge and Lemonade handle the Kowaina and separate to get into positions. Rouge and Lemonade distracted the Kowaina and it chases them, while the other three get closer to Arachnea and Mika. Arachnea attacked them with purple webs but Mint protects them with Mint Protection, causing it to bounce from the shield as Aqua gets behind her and uses Aqua Stream, which hit her and made her release Mika from her grip.

The five girls reform to handle the Kowaina and they take turns using Lemonade Flash, Rouge Fire, and finally, Dream Attack to destroy the Kowaina and turn it back into the camera. Arachnea flees while making a promise to remember this, and Mika slowly comes out of hiding to meet the mysterious heroines. Cure Dream gave her her camera and Mika thanked them before quickly asking questions, but when she attempts to take a picture they quickly take off after telling her not to.

Mika heads back to Natts House, where the girls are at and grows even more curious about the girls she saw earlier. She gets inside to spot Natts in his human form, and asks if he saw five girls together. He claims he hasn't, but when she sees his face, she is quickly taken with his appearance and quickly explains what she saw. She wished to do a report of the five amazing girls who saved her, but he acts confused and told her that there are some things in the world better off not knowing. He asks if she could just forget about it, and she agrees because of his beauty quickly taking effect on her.

The next morning, Nozomi, Rin and Urara were walking together when they see an article was posted. They worry right away, thinking its about them until Karen and Komachi get a closer look. Karen reveals that there is something else, and reveals the article to be about Natts with the headline "New Hottie found in town", with the pictures being of him. Mika appears again and tells them she met a hottie and the Cinq Lumieres News will from now on make reports about him, then she takes off. Rin can't believe she wrote about a face instead of them saving her life, while Urara seems to feel lonely and Nozomi attempts to cheer them up, saying it was for the best anyway.

Suddenly, the Pretty Cures noticed a small, unreadable article about them with the headline "5 girls drove away mysterious person." Though they can't believe she added a small article about them, they were happy they were in the news anyway.
