Episode Plot

The Don George battle tournament continues. The next battle was Cilan vs. Trip. While Cilan used Dwebble, Trip used his newly evolved Gurdurr. However, despite the evolutionary advantage, Cilan won and has moved on to the next round. Next was Stephan vs. Bianca and unfortunately Bianca lost. Then came the battle between Luke and his opponent Scooter, which Luke won. Finally, the battle between Iris and Jimmy Ray which Iris won. Soon the quarter-finals were underway with Ash going up against Georgia and her new Pawniard. If she beat Iris without batting an eye, How can Ash fair against her?
