Pinpo-n! Best Friends by Switching Places-nya ♪ (ピンポーン!交換ステイでベストフレンドニャ♪ Pinpo-n! Kōkan Sutei de Besuto Furendo nya ♪?) is the 16th episode of Suite Pretty Cure♪, and also the 357th episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall.


Siren plots to divide pretty cure by causing a spat between Hibiki and Kanade, just as the girls are entered into a Best Friends competition. Hummy then suggests they switch places for the day to learn more about the other person.



Hibiki and Kanade in front of the class

Recently, Hibiki and Kanade had been good friends. In order to break their friendship, Siren turned into Kanade to start a fight with Hibiki, and deceived by her, Hibiki and Kanade get into a quarrel while at school as their teacher announces that the two had been chosen to receive the school's best friend award.

The girls are left concerned but they try to ignore their harsh feelings while she explains that the award ceremony will be having their parents attend as well.

After class ends, Kanade brings up that they should practice the piano together for a presentation during the ceremony. However, Hibiki could not bring herself to do this so soon after arguing with Kanade.


Hibiki with Souta

In order to let Hibiki and Kanade see each other's good points, Hummy suggested that the two stay over at each other's homes for a day. The girls agree and head to the others home. 

When Hibiki arrived at Kanade's home, she was immediately subjected to Souta's pranks. On the other hand, Kanade could not settle in at Hibiki's home due to Dan, who loved listening to classical music at high volume.

Hibiki tried to follow Kanade's schedule of helping Souta with homework and helping out at the store, while Kanade followed Hibiki's schedule of alternately preparing meals with Dan.


Hibiki and Kanade in front of the school

That night, Kanade made an international call with Maria, Hibiki's mother, and this leaves her to wonder if Hibiki ever feels lonely since she is unable to spend time ith her mother. Despite that she is always so cheerful and energetic.

Meanwhile, Hibiki is left feeling that Kanade is a great person. Not only can she manage to easily handle the store, but she also takes care of her brother. Knowing of each other's good points, the two friends unite and make up.

After surveillance at Hibiki's home, Siren comes up with a new plan after believing Hibiki's mother is probably her weakness.

Finally, on the day of the best friend award ceremony, the students and Kanade's parents came to watch Hibiki and Kanade receive their awards. Just then, Maria, who was supposed to be overseas, also appeared. She claims Kanade said that Hibiki "really hates her", and claims Kanade is a bad girl. In order to embarrass Kanade, Maria told Hibiki to mess up the piano performance.

Melody and Rhythm use their new power

Hibiki did not know whether to believe Kanade or Maria, as Kanade tries to deny this- but just then they are joined by the real Maria. Siren is then forced to reveal her disguise and she spots a musical note residing in a metronome and turned it into a Negatone.

Transforming into Pretty Cure, Melody and Rhythm had a hard time defeating the Negatone with their usual attacks, but after coming up with a new technique by exchanging their Belltiers, they managed to defeat the Negatone easily.

Major Events

  • Melody and Rhythm discover Cross Rod Mode on their Belltiers and perform Music Rondo Super Quartet for the first time.
  • Hibiki's mother Maria makes her first apperance in person.
