Big Big Big Pinch!? Pretty Cure VS Close (大大大ピンチ!?プリキュアVSクローズ Dai dai dai pinchi!? Purikyua tai Kurōzu?) is the 11th episode of Go! Princess Pretty Cure and is the 546th episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall.


Dyspear sends the Cures and Yui into the Cage of Despair, causing everyone to awaken in separate areas. Will they be able to fight and find each other? Or will Close use his new powers to defeat them all?


Shocked, everyone observes Dyspear, who stands before them. Twinkle assumes they will just have to battle her, but she is surprised when Twinkle Humming doesn't even touch her, learning she is a mere illusion. She has come to punish Close, who begs for another chance. She agrees and with her abilities, sucks everyone into a portal.

Yui awakens to find herself in a barren land. She looks to see Pafu, Aroma, and a bag before her and runs up to check on them. To her alarm she hears the others and when they wake up, they attempt to cover the fact they can talk but aren't given a choice after they see a frightening, dark figure looming above. A Zetsuborg appears and with no other choice they run away.

Meanwhile, the Cures have been separated and a Zetsuborg has been placed before each. Mermaid finds herself in a light area full of water, while Twinkle runs around elsewhere full of large crystals and a twinkling night sky. Both girls put up a good fight but prove to be no match as Floral finds herself on a small floating landmass. Close suddenly appears to inform her they are all trapped within the Cage of Despair, in which the power of DysDark is much more powerful. With his new, strengthened form, Close grows in size and begins to attack the shocked Flora, who can hardly defend herself from his attacks, dropping her new elegant mode key when she gets thrown back.

In this time, each Cure remembers this key and prepares to use it. But to their surprise it won't respond to their Perfumes. As the girls wonder why they wont work, their enemies use this to their advantage to attack the girls and injure them.

As Yui hides from the Zetsuborg, Aroma and Pafu explain what they are. Aroma mentions that at one point her dreams were locked as well, and it was Haruka who saved them. Suddenly Yui hears a voice and takes out a device to see an image of Prince Kanada. He speaks to Aroma and Pafu, who explain the situation along with Yui, and he explains that the girls are in danger and they need their Crystal Princess Rods. When it comes together with the new Elegant Dress-Up keys a new power will awaken. He explains how the rods work, saying that if it can feel the powers of their dreams he is sure it will reach them. Yui rises and decides they must tell the girls, then introduces herself to Kanada as a friend of Haruka's. She promises that she can be trusted and despite Aroma's warning that its too dangerous, Yui rushes off in search of them.

Each Cure changes into her other Dress-Up Key to finish off the Zetsuborgs. But by now they are left wondering where the others are and attempt to locate them from where they stand.

Close angrily tells off Flora for transforming, saying that if she, Mermaid, and Twinkle weren't around then they would have won. He criticizes her dream, then asks if she's satisfied with being a Princess Pretty Cure, demanding that she stop fighting against him. Before he can land a final hit, Twinkle and Mermaid arrive to defend her, but he claims even together they can't defeat him.

Yui arrives to discover the girls in a large crater on the ground with Close on the other end. She expresses alarm at his new form but the trio rise, refusing to let him tell them how their dreams will end. They are theirs alone and they will not give up. Suddenly the elegant Dress-Up keys begin to react and Yui runs up to them. She tells them to send their dreams to Kanata to awaken their new powers and the girls take her advice. The keys glow as Close attempts to stop it by changing into an even larger monsters form, absorbing the power of despair surrounding them. The light disappears from the girls but they refuse to give up as Close blasts them with a large amount of power from the sky, sending them flying among the broken up rock and ground.

By now, Flora has become hopeless and fears they really aren't strong enough, but Yui comes to her side to snap her out of it. She grabs Flora and pulls her aside to avoid Close's attack and Flora scolds her recklessness. Yui assures her she is fine and reminds Flora of her own precious dream of becoming a picture book author. For her sake she will see to it that she accomplishes her dream, and she wonders if her dream could provide help to her as well. Flora realizes that it's because of Yui she feels that she can finally embrace her dream, and she has become less timid over time. Together, she stands along with the others.

The light reappears and grows even larger than the transformed Close, breaking the Cage of Despair and unleashing the Crystal Princess Rods for their use. Observing their new weapons, each Cure changes into her brand new Mode Elegant: Rose, Ice, and Luna. They then release Trinity Lumiere on Close to defeat him, once and for all.

In a flash of light the girls realize they have returned to Noble Academy. Flora apologizes for all the trouble she caused and not being honest about Pretty Cure, but Yui apologizes for not noticing to begin with. As her friend she should be there for her. The girls change back to normal and together with Yui, Aroma, and Pafu, they make their way back home.

Meanwhile, Dyspear observes a single black feather that has floated down to her. She angrily crushes it.
