Too Scary! Dotsuku Zone's Final Trump Card (こわすぎ!ドツクゾーン最後の切り札 "Kowasugi! Dotsuku Zōn Saigo no Kirifuda"?), dubbed The Dark Zone's Secret Weapon in the English dub, is the 19th episode of the season Futari wa Pretty Cure, and also the 19th episode of Pretty Cure franchise overall.

Summary

Mipple worries that Mepple has forgotten his duties as of late, so they get into an argument. During this time, the Dotsuku Zone unleashes its second-in-command, IIkubo

Synopsis

At Verone Academy, Honoka helps Nagisa study for math when a hungry Mepple interrupts, forcing them to leave the school library and head outside. He asks for several frozen desserts, as Nagisa swipes Omp's card to feed him. Honoka asks Mepple to share some of his treats with Mipple, only for him to have already eaten it all. He offers Mipple the next serving, but she angrily closes her Card Commune, leaving him indifferent as he asks for more. 

In the Dotsuku Zone, the Evil King groans with impatience as the cloaked man, frustrated, stands before him. 

FwPC19 -16- Mipple and Mepple argue

Mepple and Mipple argue.

Nagisa walks through a market while thinking about her recent encounter with the enemies as Pretty CureFwPC18, where they were transported out of a mirror by a mysterious light. She questions if someone had helped them, but quickly brushes it aside. Honoka runs up to Nagisa as the two are right by a bakery, which Mepple smells and demands to eat bread. The girls run to a secluded area, annoyed that he's still asking for food. Mipple notes that Mepple has been acting strange lately, asking if he's forgotten his mission as the Garden of Light's chosen hero. Mepple retorts that he's just preparing, and claims that Mepple isn't fit to be the Princess of Hope if she can't understand that. Mipple states that all she wants is the restore the Garden of Light back to normal, before angrily closing her Card Commune again, with Mepple following suit. 

Later that day, at her home, Nagisa notices something wrong with Mepple when he refuses to eat dinner. He admits that Mipple was right to be angry, given how much they both miss their home. He describes how beautiful the Garden of Light used to be, and the threat of it disappearing if the Dotsuku Zone got their hands on all seven Prism Stones. As Mepple and Mipple had escaped with two of the Prism Stones, the Garden of Light remains safe for now. At Honoka's house, Mipple has the same conversation with her. Honoka says that she might have gone too far in calling Mepple "unheroic," which Mipple agrees.

FwPC19 The Garden of Light starts to crumble

Mepple recalls how the Dotsuku Zone attacked the Garden of Light.

Back with Nagisa and Mepple, he explains to her that when the power of creation is revealed from all seven Prism Stones together, the Garden of Light can be restored to normal. Mepple notes that the power of creation also exists here in the Garden of Rainbows, through the accumulated energy of its living beings. Mepple says that everything will be fine once the Chosen Hero, the Princess of Hope, and the legendary warriors combine their powers. However, Nagisa says that it's not good if the Chosen Hero and Princess of Hope are currently arguing.  

The next morning, the girls reunite on their way to school, moving into an alleyway as the two whisper about having Mepple and Mipple make up. The girls bring them out, with Mepple struggling to find the words, only for Nagisa to tell him that all he needs to do is apologize. This irritates Mepple, who believes he is the one owed an apology by claiming that Mipple started it, which reignites the fight, leaving both to return to their pouches, refusing to talk to each other.  

Just then, the girls notice people around them suddenly falling unconscious and even the flowers wilting. Poisony, who's nearby and uninvolved, feels the frozen atmosphere along with the tension, suspecting Ilkubo, the cloaked man from before. It's shown that Ilkubo is draining the energy from his surroundings into an orb that he holds, intending to gift it to the Evil King. In another part of the city, a surprised Kiriya watches.  

FwPC19 -29- People lose energy

People in the city fall unconscious.

The girls see how lifeless the entire city has become, while Mepple senses it's unlike anything he's felt from the Dotsuku Zone before. They spot a cloaked figure in the middle of the street and approach them. It turns out to be Ilkubo, who asks if they're the ones he's looking for. As the girls slowly back away from Ilkubo, they notice the orb in his hand, which Mepple explains is filled with the lifeforce stolen from the Garden of Rainbows. Ilkubo demands them Prism Stones from them, with Mepple and Mipple telling the girls to retreat, as he's unlike any of the others they've faced. Nagisa and Honoka refuse, instead opting to transform and fight. Ilkubo states that he won't hold back.  

The girls charge at Ilkubo individually, but he is able to push them back with just one hand. They then try charing together, but the result ends up the same. The girls get up, holding hands as if about to launch their attack, but Ilkubo drains the power of light from them into his orb, reverting Pretty Cure back into their civilian forms. Ilkubo is amazed at the power he just amassed.  

The powerless girls struggle to even stand up. Mipple loses hope, noting that they've run out of options. However, Mepple tells her that as the Princess of Hope and for the sake of the Garden of Light, she shouldn't give up. He then asks the girls to take Mipple with them and escape as he tries to fend Ilkubo off by himself, even planning to give up his Prism Stone in a worst-case scenario. Nagisa mentions that without him they can't transform, but Mepple says that the girls being there to support Mipple is enough. Mipple continues to object, but Mepple states that he is the chosen hero and he will protect all three of them. He turns into his true form and charges towards Ilkubo, who notices that he's beginning to lose control of the energy contained in his orb as it gradually cracks open.

FwPC19 -58- The girls regain their transformation

The girls regain their powers and jump back into battle.

The released energy begins to rain down, allowing the girls to transform back into Pretty Cure as they regain the power of light. Mipple notes that the power of the Garden of Rainbows is assisting the girls, as they launch their Marble Screw attack against Ilkubo. He holds back the blast at first, but Pretty Cure is able to expel more power and overwhelm him.

As things go back to normal, Mipple and Mepple apologize for what they said to each other, before proclaiming their love and embracing.

Meanwhile, Ilkubo, who survived, stands atop a building, in disbelief over how strong the power of light is, worrying that the girls have grown stronger from it.
