"Simulation" (模擬戦闘訓練, Shimyurēshon) is episode 38 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.


Yamato designs a mock test for his team to see how everyone coordinated with each other. Naruto is paired with Sai despite his objections, and Sakura is assigned to support Yamato. Yamato conducts a simulation of the meeting, with himself as "the spy", to gauge Naruto and Sai's abilities and teamwork. After Naruto makes a mistake, Sai immobilises him and goes off alone. Naruto is angered with Sai for not acting as a comrade would, but resolves to work together with him to get Sasuke back. Sai reveals to Sakura that he has no emotions, and little understanding of them, as a part of his training in Anbu Root.
