"What is the most important thing?" (いちばん大切なものって、なぁに? Ichiban taisetsu na mono tte, nāni??) is the 22nd episode of Smile Pretty Cure!, the 19th episode of Glitter Force, and the 411th episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall. The English title is "The Ultimate Choice".


With Pop's aid, the girls travel to Märchenland in order to save Candy from Joker.


Pop tells Pretty Cure how to get to Märchenland.

The girls return to their groups base after Candy was abducted by Joker, who also took the Decor Décor. Miyuki happens to see that Joker didn't take all of the Cure Decors as she'd feared; the Star Decor she put on the Tanabata bamboo still remains. The girls sadly observe the wish tags Candy wrote for them. Pop tells the group that Candy was probably taken to the Bad End Kingdom and that they need to travel through Märchenland to get there. With his help, they use the magic book to teleport to Märchenland.

Joker asks Candy about the Miracle Jewel.

Meanwhile, Joker has been trying to get information from Candy in regards to the Miracle Jewel, but she refuses to speak. He checks the Decor Décor and realizes that it is one Cure Decor short. Realizing that Pretty Cure is likely on their way to save Candy, he decides to set a trap for them to take the last Decor for himself.

The girls arrive in Märchenland and they find it very quiet, which alarms them. Their fear is slightly alleviated when Pop explains that the silence is due to the fairies staying home due to fear of the Bad End Kingdom. Before they can do anything, Joker suddenly appears and the girls transform to fight him. But they aren't even able to land a hit. Cure Happy tries using Happy Shower only for it to reflect off of his magic cards and come back at the girls. Pop transforms into a shield to intercept the attacks, but he's weakened afterward.

The Cures try to combine their attacks, but this does nothing and is reflected back in their direction.


Joker takes the Star Decor.

Threatened by this, the girls find themselves unable to fight any longer. Joker steals the final Decor and begins stealing Bad End energy from them, using psychological taunting to cause them despair. After enough energy forms, he takes it and vanishes. The girls retreat for shelter with nothing else to do, wondering what they possibly could do at this point. They are worried over their confrontation with Joker and they think that there's no possible way that they can defeat Pierrot if they couldn't even touch Joker. Worrying over whether they should see their friends and family one last time before the end of the world only made them more anxious.


Pop cries and attempts to save Candy.

Hesitantly, Pop does the only thing he can do and he confronts Pierrot on his own, worried over his sister. The girls calm down enough to help him despite how upset they are, suggesting they split up and take a break for the time being. Pop agrees and reminds them to meet that evening beneath the full moon, as this is the only way they can travel to the Bad End Kingdom.


Pretty Cures reunited.

As the evening goes by the girls are left wondering if they should really go through with this and they try to determine what the most important thing is in this case. They remember the wish tags Candy wrote and they realize that leaving her trapped and in pain isn't an option. They gather together and swear to rescue Candy and defeat Pierrot.

As the team leaves to the Bad End Kingdom, Joker gave the last bit of Bad End energy to Pierrot and he slowly awakens.
