Episode Plot[edit | edit source]

With Ash's victory over Trip, Ash has moved on to the next round. Stephan, friend and old rival, has been chosen and Ash must think on his feet to defeat a trainer he has battled many times before. The battle begins with Liepard vs Krookodile. The battle goes off on bang as both unleash powerful moves, sending both backwards. Liepard gains the upper hand by using its powerful speed and Double Team to out maneuver Krookodile. Things look bat for Ash until Krookodile attacks with Stone Edge, knocking Liepard away. The battle continues with Liepard using Double Team again and Krookodile using Dig. Both attack with Krookodile using Dragon Claw and Liepard using Shadow Claw. Both land, but Liepard collapses, giving Ash the round.

Ash has a small celebration before Stephan sends out his second Pokémon, Zebstrika. Ash checks his Pokédex and decides to recall his tired Krookodile and sends out Palpitoad. The battle commences as Palpitoad is sent backwards by an attack, shocking Ash. Ash commands Palpitoad to use its newest move, Sludge Wave, resulting in Zebstrika being poisoned. The battle reaches its climax as the two attack, leaving a dust cloud covering the field. The dust clears and reveals both have been KOed.

The next round begins with Sawk vs Leavanny. Stephan opens with Bulk Up and Ash with String Shot. Sawk breaks free and begins a barrage of punches. Ash counters with his new move, X-Scissor. Sawk shakes off the attack and continues the fight. Leavanny uses Energy Ball, sending Sawk to the ground. Leavanny then uses X-Scissor, but is caught off guard when Sawk catches Leavanny's attack and counters with several punches. Things look bad for Ash and his weakening Leavanny until its Swarm ability activates. Now powered up, Leavanny uses String Shot to bind Sawk. Sawk manages to break free again and delivers the finishing blow on Leavanny.

The final round begins with Sawk vs Krookodile, both tired from their previous battles. Sawk begins with Karate Chop and Krookodile with Dragon Claw. Ash unleashes Krookodile's newest move, Aerial Ace, defeating Sawk in the process. Ash is declared the winner as he and Krookodile celebrate. Stephan and Ash meet in the center of the ring and shake hands as the crowd cheers.

Virgil is shown defeating his opponent with Umbreon and Cameron is seen winning with Riolu. The next round is about begin as the trainers are paired up for their matches. The pairings are picked and Ash's next opponent is revealed, Cameron.

That night, Ash and friends, along with Bianca and Stephan, are having dinner. They talk about the battle before the scene shifts to bed time. Iris notices Ash isn't in bed.

Ash walks into the stadium to look at the torch and notices Cameron in his tent below. The two converse about their upcoming battle. The next day arrives as the next round of the conference begins. Both send out their Pokémon, but Ash is shocked to see that Cameron has sent out a Hydreigon for his first Pokémon.
