(Episode opens early in the morning with the night
sky beginning to fade away. Some of the stars
have disappeared, the moon sets in the west,
cumulus clouds moving across the area, and a
calm & settling atmosphere envelops the entire
area. Now, we pan down to the Pokemon Center,
and we fade in on the guest room, where the gang
is sleeping. Someone knocks on the door and
Pikachu abruptly awake.)
Pikachu: Pika!
(He looks over to the door and hear the knocking
again.)
(He nudges at Ash’s head until he awakens. He
sits up and stretches his arms out.)
Ash: (yawns.) What is it, Pikachu?
Pikachu: Pika-chu.
(He nudges his head over to the door as if to say,
“There’s someone at the door.”)
Ash (comprehending): Oh, okay.
(He gets up out of bed, walks over and opens the
door. Siara stands in the doorway.)
Siara: Morning, Ash.
Ash: (yawns.) Morning, Siara. What are you doing
up so early?

Siara: We’re going to do some quick stargazing
before Sunrise.
Ash (realizing): I see.
Siara: Want to come do it with us?
Ash: You bet.
Pikachu: Pika-chu.
(He goes over to the bed and gets his sneakers.
Just then, Serena, Cilan, Iris and Clemont awaken
and sit up in their beds.)
Cilan: (yawns and grunts.) What’s going on, Ash?
Ash: We’re going out to do some stargazing.
Cilan: Oh. Hold on, we’ll be right up.
(He and the others get out of bed and they leave
the room. Now, they go out to the hallway, where
they over to the next room and knock on the door.
Janie opens it up.)
Janie: (yawns.) What’s up?
Ada: Want to come out and do some stargazing?
Janie: All right, sure.
(Trevor gets up from his bed and the two and put
their shoes on. Now, they exit the Center and head
over to a hillock not too far away from it.)
Serena: How long will it be before Sunrise?

(Ada checks the time on her Poketch.)
Ada: About twenty-six minutes.
Serena: All right, then.
(They put out a large blanket across the grass and
set up some chairs in place. Now, they all take
their places. Fade into seven and a half minutes
later, where they’re looking up at the stars that are
still there. Each of them is looking up in a different
direction.)
Siara: Take a look at this star over here. That’s
Procyon.
Cilan: It looks beautiful.
Janie: Sure does, but look at this one. It’s even
brighter than that.
Quinn: That’s Sirius, and it’s the brightest one
you’ll find up there at night.
Trevor: That’s pretty cool. You know, Quinn, you’re
pretty good.
Quinn: Why, thank you Trevor. Now, if you look
over this way, there’s Orion’s Belt.
(Now, we pan over to Ash, Iris, Siara and Serena
scanning around for constellations.)
Serena: Look, there’s the Big Dipper.
Iris: Good eye, Serena.

Serena: Thanks.
Ash: And there’s the Little Dipper right there.
Pikachu: Pika.
Siara: That’s very good, Ash, and you can also see
Polaris right there.
(She points to the tip of the Little Dipper.)
Iris: Oh, it looks pretty.
Siara: Mmm-hmm. Now, look right across from it.
That’s Cassiopeia.
Ash: Oh, that’s pretty awesome.
Pikachu (agrees): Pika.
(Now, we pan over to Lex, Ada, Clemont and Diana
chatting.)
Clemont: I hope you don’t mind of I ask, but how
often do you guys come out here this early?
Ada: On several occasions, but it’s usually when
there are certain astronomical events happen, like
when certain planets or stars can be seen at a
certain time.
Clemont: Oh, I get you now.
Lex: Yep.
(Lex scans across the sky and spots two objects.)

Lex: Ooh, what perfect timing. (Calling over.) Hey,
guys. Come and look at this.
(The others come over and look up in the direction
he’s pointing at.)
Iris (bewildered): Uh, what is it, Lex?
Lex: You see those three bright spots there? That’s
Venus, Mars and Jupiter.
Serena: Really?
Lex: Yep.
Ash: Wow! (curiously) How’d you know that’s what
they were?
Lex: Well, Siara showed them to us one night a
couple of years back.
Ash (understanding): I see.
(Now, we fade in fifteen and a half minutes later,
where the gang’s now chatting.)
Trevor: So, here’s another question: what were
some of your personal favorite scenes that you
worked on?
Quinn: Hmm, I would have to say it’d be the one
where this Rapidish was running so fast that it felt
like it was flying. Wasn’t easy to do, I can tell you
that.

Diana: Mine would be this battle between a
Charizard and Tornadus. It was intense and very
challenging, but it was worth it in the end.
Janie: Oh, that’s pretty cool. (She turns over to
Siara.) How about you, Siara? What’s your
favorite challenge?
Siara: Hmm, that’d currently be working out the
flexibility of the android’s arms & legs. Figuring out
how much each joint can move was quite an
undertaking.
Janie: Oh, that’s interesting.
(Ada checks the time again. It’s two and a half
minutes till six-thirty.)
Ada: It’s time, guys.
(They sit up and look out to the horizon line. Now,
a purple light starts to illuminate the sky a bit and
the Sun ascends along. The golden yellow light
sweeps over the entire area, a few clouds roll in
and a red-orange light fills the sky with a bit of
blue starting to fade in.)
All (in wonder and awe): Whoa!
Pikachu (in wonder and awe): Pi-ka!
Axew (in wonder and awe): Axew!
Serena: Isn’t it beautiful?

Ash (agreeing): It sure is.
Pikachu (agreeing): Pika.
(They continue watching it as it rises. A few
moments later, they get up from their spots, fold
up the blanket & chairs, pick them up and head on
back to the Pokemon Center. Now, they each go
into the bathroom, clean themselves up and
change into their casual clothing. Afterwards, they
regroup back in the bedroom.)
Serena: That was very refreshing.
Cilan: You said it.
Ash: All right, now how should the training plan go
for today?
(They all think about it for a moment.)
Clemont: Ahh. We could use this training course
I’ve been working on. However, the one catch to it
is, only about three people can use it at a time.
Iris: It’s okay, Clemont. That’ll work just fine. We
could spar off with one another sand then switch
out.
Ada: Yeah, and you can do some meditating with
us, if you’d like.
Cilan: Okay, that sounds good. Now, as for the
course, how about we start it off by strengthening
the physical attacks first?

Ash: That’s good. Then, after that, we’ll work on
the special attacks.
Iris: Sounds like a plan to me.
Ash (enthusiastically): Okay, let’s do it!
Pikachu (enthusiastically): Pika-chu!
(They exit the room and head back outside again.
Now, a brief montage goes on where we see them
doing warm-up exercises, from leg & arm
stretches, turns, to knee and hip rotations and a
short lap around the center, all while Clemont is
assembling the training course. Montage concludes
where Clemont is finishing setting up the training
course. It consists of movable targets, a couple of
heavy bags, a treadmill and some robotic hands.)
Lex: Wow, this looks impressive, Clemont.
Clemont: Well, thank you.
(He presses a button and activates the course.
The targets & treadmill move about and the arms
get into a blocking or defensive stance. Just then,
Serena taps Ash on his shoulder.)
Serena: Hey, Ash.
Ash: What is it, Serena?
Serena (very certain): I was wondering, could you
please spar off against me?

Ash: Sure, of course.
Serena (thankfully): Great.
(They walk over to a small battle field, then they
go into their corners and get into their beginning
stances.)
Ash: All right, let’s go Pikachu.
Pikachu: Pika-chu.
(He hops off his shoulder and gets into his battling
stance.)
Serena: Come on out, Pancham!
(She tosses the Pokeball and Pancham comes out
of it.)
Pancham: Pan-cham!
Ash: You go first, Serena.
Serena: Okay, Pancham use Arm Thrust!
(Pancham’s hands glow white and strikes Pikachu
with them, dealing damage.)
Ash: Pikachu, Iron Tail!
Pikachu: Pika!
(His tail becomes surrounded in white sparkles and
then gets surrounded in a white outline. Then, it
turns to iron and swings it at Pancham, doing
damage to it.)

Serena: Use Stone Edge!
Pancham: Paaaaannnnn-cham!
(He slams his hand on the ground, causing glowing
light blue pillars of rock to appear and rush
towards Pikachu.)
Ash: Quick, dodge it and use ThunderBolt!
Pikachu: Pika!
(He swiftly moves out of the way of the attack.)
Pikachu: Pika-chuuu!!!!
(He releases a powerful bolt of yellow electricity at
Pancham.)
Serena: Dodge it!
(Pancham swiftly evades the blast.)
Serena: Now, use Dark Pulse!
(He creates a ball of black and purple circles in
each hand. Then, he combines them and fires
them as a beam at Pikachu, directly hitting him
and doing a good amount of damage.)
Ash: Great move there, Serena.
Serena: Thanks, Ash.
Ash: Pikachu, Quick Attack!
Pikachu: Pika!

(He runs fast towards Pancham and a white outline
surrounds him. He hits Pancham, doing damage to
it. Now, we pan back over to the training course.
Iris, Clemont, and Janie get into their positions.)
Iris: Ready to do it, Axew?
Axew (affirmatory): Axew.
Iris: Good.
(He gets into his starting position.)
Janie: It’s time, Nidorino!
(She throws the Pokeball and Nidorino emerges
from it.)
Nidorino: Nido.
Clemont: Let’s go, Bunnelby!
(He throws the PokeBall and Bunnelby emerges
from it.)
Bunnelby: Bunn-el.
Iris: Axew, Dragon Claw!
(Both of Axew’s claws glow light blue and it slashes
at a target, but one of the robotic hands blocks the
attack.)
Iris (encouraging): Come on, Axew. Try again.
Axew: Ax-ew.

(One of the robotic arms throws a left hook, but
Axew narrowly evades it. Then, he goes for the
target and slashes it on the bullseye.)
Iris: Way to go, Axew!
Axew: Axew!
(Now, we look over to Clemont and Bunnelby
working with a large heavy bag with a bullseye on
it.)
Clemont: Bunnelby, Double Slap!
(Its ears glow white and it repeatedly smacks the
heavy bag with them.)
Clemont: That’s it. Keep it up.
(Now, we look over to see Nidorino gets on the
treadmill. It starts up and it goes at a fast, but
steady speed.)
Janie: All right, Nidorino, Take Down!
(Nidorino’s body becomes surrounded by a blue
aura and charges toward the target, and just then,
two robotic arms throw left & right hooks at him,
but he swiftly avoids each punch, then leaps
forward and hits the target in the bullseye.)
Janie: All right, Nidorino! You got it now!
(We pan over to Ada, Diana, Cilan and Trevor
preparing to meditate. They sit on their knees in a

relaxing position. Now, they close their eyes, take
a deep breath and calmly focus.)
Trevor: This feels nice.
Ada: Oh, good. Now, concentrate your energy.
(They continue to focus & concentrate. Now, a
montage commences where we cross fade to a
half hour later, where everyone’s switched up, with
Cilan sparring off against Janie, Iris & Serena
mediating and then switch up again later. Montage
concludes with them finishing up their last training
sessions.)
Clemont: Whew, that was intense.
Ash: Yeah, but it’s all worth it.
Pikachu: Pika-Pikachu.
(Just then, Serena’s stomach grumbles.)
Serena: Oh. I guess it’s time to eat.
Cilan: Hey, no problem. Clemont and I will fix up
brunch for us.
(They all head back onside the Center. Fade in to a
couple of minutes later, where everyone’s sitting a
large table.)
Ash: What sort of plan could Clemont and Cilan
have for this brunch?

Serena: Who knows? Maybe it’ll be something
special.
(Cilan and Clemont come over to them and Cilan
hand each of them six laminated menu cards.
Three of them have breakfast items on them, and
the other three have lunch items.)
Ash (bewildered): Uh, what are these cards for?
Cilan: It’s easy: all you do is select one breakfast
and lunch item you want from each set and then
hand us back your selections.
Ash (comprehending): Ahh, I get you now.
(They carefully look over the items, then each pick
out one from each set and hand their selections
over to Clemont. He carefully scans them.)
Clemont: Okay, then. We’ll have them ready in a
few minutes.
(Cilan takes up the remaining cards and he &
Clemont head into the kitchen.)
Janie: Those two sure know how to cook, don’t
they?
Ash: Oh, you have no idea.
Iris: Yeah, some of what they make is amazing.
Trevor: Ahh, that’s cool. (He turns over to the
Mission Guides.) How about you some of you?

Ada: We sure do. Lex and I make a lot of unique
dishes that you should try sometime.
Janie: All right, sounds great.
Siara: So, while we’re still on the subject, there are
certain aspects about nutrition that many people
don’t know of or tend to overlook.
Trevor: Okay, like what?
Siara: I’ll show you.
(She gets out the Pokepilot out from her pocket,
turns it on, goes through it and comes to a section
on the various parts of nutrition.)
Siara: To start with, you’ve always heard that water
is vital for your body, and there’s a good reason for
it. Not only is every bodily fluid based around it,
but it also helps cleanse any bodily wastes,
lubricates and protects your joints, organs, nose
and mouth and it maintains your body’s
temperature.
Ash: That’s a very cool thing.
Siara: Mmm-hmm, but there’s more. Next, there’s
the importance of carbohydrates. In recent years,
many people have claimed that they’re bad for
you, but in actuality, they’re good for your body.
Simple and complex carbohydrates are broken
down into glucose molecules during digestion and

then are absorbed into cells where they’re used as
an energy source. In addition, the amount of
energy certain foods provide is measured in units
of heat, or calories.
Serena: Oh, that’s very interesting. What else is
there?
Siara: Next up is how vital protein is for your
growth. It’s comprised of nine essential amino
acids that your body uses to create tissues and
vital enzymes. On average, a person needs 50 to
sixty grams per day, and it can be obtained quite
easily, from eating meat, of course, bread and
drinking milk.
Trevor: What now?
Quinn: Mind if I handle these next ones, Siara?
Siara: No, go right ahead.
(She hands the Pokepilot over to Quinn.)
Quinn: Now, this next one is something you already
know about: vitamin & minerals are crucial to body
functions, as well as playing a role in preventing
certain diseases. However, what you may not
know about is that some vitamins & minerals are
toxic to your body if they’re ingested in large
quantities, like Vitamin A, Iron and Niacin. So be
sure you know which ones you’ll need more of than
others.

Iris: Okay, we’ll keep that one in mind. Now what?
Quinn: Another way some can get nutrients is by
taking supplements, which are just nutrients in
either pill or liquid form. Whenever anyone takes
one of these, it’s usually to help round out a
balanced diet they could be on or provide
protection against a deficit. However, the
important thing to remember about them is,
they’re not meant as a substitute for gaining
nutrients from food and can’t help fight off against
diseases.
Ash: Okay, is there anything else?
Quinn: Yes, there is: the importance of the food
labels. You always see them on cans or boxes, and
with good reason. They’re meant to tell you what
the ingredients of specific foods are, what the
serving sizes are, how many calories they hold, and
of course, what vitamins & minerals are in them.
They can also be helpful if you’re planning heartier
meals.
Ash: Well, those are all very interesting facts there.
Siara: Mmm-hmm, they are. So, what do you guys
say we do some trivia?
Iris: Okay, then.
Axew: Axew.

(Pan up to an upper panel displaying three images
associated with different nutritional aspects.)
Siara: Ready to do it, guys?
Serena: Yeah, we are.
Siara: Okay, then. First, what makes protein
important for your body?
Serena: They’re made of nine amino acids and the
body uses them to create tissues and enzymes.
Quinn: That’s very good, Serena. Next, what are
the food labels meant to tell you?
Trevor: What ingredients and vitamins & minerals
they have, the serving size and how many calories
they have.
Siara: All right, Trevor. Why are carbohydrates
good for the body?
Janie: They’re broken down into glucose molecules,
absorbed into the cells and are used for energy.
Siara: You got it, Janie. You guys did great there.
Ash: Thanks, Siara and Quinn.
Pikachu: Pika-chu.
Quinn and Siara: You’re welcome.
(Quinn turns the Pokepilot off, hands it back to
Siara and she puts it in her pocket. Now, Cilan and
Clemont exit out of the kitchen with everyone’s

food on plates. Ash and Lex get apple-stuffed
French toast and ham & cheese crescent roll-ups,
Iris and Diana each get blueberry & almond crepes
and a hummus and prosciutto wrap, Janie gets a
hash brown omelet and a ham and potato soup,
Serena gets blueberry & almond crepes and a ham
& cheese crescent roll-ups, Trevor receives an
apple-stuffed French toast and a hummus and
prosciutto wrap, Siara gets a hash brown omelet
and a ham & potato soup, Ada has an Applestuffed French Toast and a ham & potato soup and
Quinn gets a. Cilan has some ham & cheese rollups and blueberry & almond crepes and Clemont
has a hash brown omelet and a hummus and
prosciutto. They all start to dig in to their food.)
All (contended): Mmm.
Pikachu (contended): Pika.
Axew (contended): Axew.
Serena (complementing): You guys outdid
yourselves with this.
Iris (agreeing): You said it.
Clemont: Why, thank you. We make a good team,
don’t we?
Cilan: Indeed, we do Clemont.

(Cross fade to several minutes later, where they
finish up their meals. Ash clears up his plate and
puts it aside.)
Ash: Oh, that really hit the spot.
Trevor: So, guys. Before we get back to training,
how about we do another round of trivia?
Serena: Okay, but let’s see if the audience is up for
it before we start.
Janie: Mind if I handle this one?
Ash: No, go right ahead Janie.
Janie: All right.
(She turns over to the audience.)
Janie (casually): You guys up for doing this? (She
casually waits for an answer from the audience for
one second.) Oh, okay then.
(Side wipe to three other images displaying
different aspects of nutrition.)
Ash (V.O.): Okay, let’s do it. What makes water so
important for your body? (He casually waits for an
answer from the audience for one and a half
second.) It protects the joints, organs, nose and
mouth and it cleanses any waste out. You got it.
Iris (V.O.): Which vitamins & minerals are toxic if
they’re taken in large amounts? (She casually

waits for an answer from the audience for one and
a half seconds.) Vitamin A, Iron and Niacin. Okay,
then.
Trevor (V.O.): (He casually waits for an answer from
the audience for one and a half seconds.) Round
out a balanced diet and protect against any
deficits. All right.
(Dissolve back to the gang and Serena casually
speaking to the audience.)
Serena (casually): Great work there, guys.
Ash: All right, let’s get to it.
(They get up from their seats and head back
outside to the training course. Clemont takes
down the robotic arms and heavy bags and puts up
attack energy absorbers & reflectors in their
place.)
Clemont: Here we go.
(He presses a button and activates them. The
reflectors and absorbers move up and down.)
Ash: Okay, let’s get this started.
(Now, a montage goes on where they get engage
in the second half of their training session.)
Serena: Sylveon, use Fairy Wind!

(Sylveon pulls her feelers together, and the air
around them start to glow light blue. Then, she
spreads them wide open, sending a strong gust of
wind at a target, but an attack absorber blocks the
attack and absorbs the attack. Now, she performs
the attack again, and the absorber intercepts, but
she redirects it to go around it and hits the target.)
Serena: Nice job, Sylveon!
(We look over to Ash and Oshawatt dealing with
another target.)
Ash: Oshawatt, use Water Gun!
Oshawatt: Osha!
(He fires a spiraling stream of water from his
mouth at the target, but one attack reflector
deflects the attack right back at him.)
Ash: Quick, dodge it!
(He swift evades the blast.)
Ash: Now, Water Gun again!
(He fires a spiraling stream of water from his
mouth at the target, which bypasses the attack
reflector and hits in the bullseye.)
Ash: All right, way to go!
Oshawatt: Oshawatt!
(Now, we look over to Trevor and his Clefable.)

Trevor: Clefable, Shock Wave!
Clefable: Cle-fable!
(It gets surrounded in blue electricity and fires a
beam of blue electricity at the target. One of the
attack reflectors tries to block it, but the attack
goes around it and hits the target.)
Trevor: Yeah, you’re getting it.
(We pan over to Iris and Clemont meditating with
Ada and Diana. Now, we look over to Cilan
sparring off with Janie.)
Cilan: Now, Stunfisk Mud Bomb!
(Stunfisk jumps into the air, takes in a deep breath
and fires a ball of brown mud from its mouth at
Gallade, doing damage to him.)
Janie: Gallade, counter with Magical Leaf!
(He fires multiple light green glowing leaves at
Stunfisk, dealing a good amount of damage to it.)
Janie: Now, use Psycho Cut!
(Gallade’s forearms glow light blue and both of
them grow and extend to the back. Then, it starts
swings them repeatedly and multiple light blue
crescent blades emerge from them and goes for
Stunfisk.)
Cilan: Dodge it!

(It jumps up and evades the attack.)
Cilan: Now use Scald!
(It rises up on its tailfin and fires a stream of
scalding hot water surrounded by steam from its
mouth at Gallade, doing some damage to him.)
Janie: Good move there, Cilan.
Cilan: Thank you, Janie.
(They continue on with their training. Now, we pan
up to see everyone training hard and we cross fade
to the big stadium, where the second-round battles
are about to get started. A humongous crowd of
spectators sit in the bleachers.)
Don George: Welcome, everyone to the second day
of the Tri-Round Trainers’ Club Tournament.
Today’s going to be a
Jenny: Right you are, Don George. Now, let’s get it
underway with our first battle of the day.
(We pan down to the battle field, where Cilan’s up
against a guy named Chris. He has red hair, hazel
eye and is wearing a blue t-shirt, navy blue jean
shorts and sneakers.)
Referee: This matchup of Cilan and Chris will now
begin!
Cilan: Let’s go, Stunfisk and Houndoom!

(He tosses the Pokeballs up and Stunfisk and
Houndoom come out of them.)
Houndoom: (growls.)
(Chris gets two Pokeballs off his belt.)
Chris: Go!
(He throws them into the air and an Ursaring and a
Magmortar emerge from them.)
Ursaring: (roars.)
Chris: Ursaring use Strength! Magmortar, Power-up
Punch!
Ursaring: (roars.)
(Its body becomes surrounded by a red aura and
goes for Stunfisk. Now, Magmortar’s fist becomes
surrounded in an orange aura and throws it at
Houndoom.)
Cilan: Dodge them and use Thunder Shock and
Rock Smash!
(They both swiftly evade the attacks. Now,
Stunfisk’s body glows white and its body becomes
surrounded in small yellow sparks. Then, its body
glows yellow and fires multiple beams of electricity
from its body at Magmortar, doing damage to it.
Houndoom jumps into the air, its front paws glow
white and falls onto Ursaring, doing a good amount
of damage.)

Cilan: Now, Houndoom Crunch! Stunfisk, Mud
Bomb!
(Houndoom’s teeth glow white, then it jumps up
and goes for Magmortar. Stunfisk jumps into the
air, takes in a deep breath and fires a ball of brown
mud from its mouth at Magmortar.)
Chris: Counter with Hammer Arm and Lava Plume!
(Ursaring’s forearms glow gold and slams them
into Houndoom, dealing damage to it. Then,
Magmortar causes an explosion around itself,
creating a mix of smog and fire to cover the area,
cancels out the Mud Bomb and hits Stunfisk with
flames, dealing damage to it. Houndoom leaps out
of the way of the attack.)
Chris: Magmortar, Focus Blast and Ursaring, Stone
Edge!
(Magmortar puts its hands together up front, forms
an orb of yellow energy and throws it at Stunfisk.
Ursaring slams its hands into the ground and
pointed light blue rock pillars appear and rush
towards Houndoom.)
Cilan: Houndoom, dodge and use Flame Charge!
Stunfisk, Sludge Bomb!
(Houndoom moves out of the way of the attack.
Now, it becomes surrounded in red flames, runs
fast and slams into Ursaring, doing significant

damage to it. Stunfisk fires a ball of brown sludge
from its mouth at Magmortar, exploding on impact
and doing damage to it.)
Cilan: Use Scald and Fire Fang!
(It rises up on its tailfin and fires a stream of
scalding hot water surrounded by steam from its
mouth at Magmortar, dealing a great amount of
damage. Now, Houndoom’s mouth and fangs
become surrounded in red-orange flames and it
bites down Ursaring, doing damage to it.)
Chris: Close Combat & Flare Blitz!
(Ursaring repeatedly punches and kicks Houndoom
at a fast speed, dealing a considerable amount of
damage. Now, Magmortar’s body becomes
surrounded by red-orange fire and it shoots at
Stunfisk like a missile, doing a good amount of
damage. Then, red sparks surround its body while
receiving recoil damage.)
Chris: Magmortar, Focus Blast! Ursaring, Strength!
(Magmortar puts its hands together up front, forms
an orb of yellow energy and throws it at
Houndoom, dealing great damage to it. Next,
Ursaring’s body becomes surrounded by a red aura
and slams into Stunfisk, doing damage to it. Just
then, little sparks of yellow electricity surround its
body.)

Cilan: Stunfisk, Sludge Bomb! Houndoom, Rock
Smash!
(Stunfisk fires a ball of brown sludge from its
mouth at Ursaring, doing damage to it. Houndoom
jumps into the air, its front paws glow white and
falls onto Magmortar, hitting it and dealing
damage.)
Ash: Boy, Cilan’s really doing great.
Pikachu (agreeing): Pika-chu.
Clemont (complementing): I’ll say he is.
Chris: Use Power-up Punch and Stone Edge!
(Magmortar’s fist becomes surrounded in an
orange aura and throws it at Stunfisk, doing
damage to it. Ursaring slams its hands into the
ground and pointed light blue rock pillars appear
and rush towards Houndoom, hitting it and dealing
a great amount of damage.)
Cilan: Those are some very good moves there.
Chris: Why, thanks. Same to you. Now, do Flare
Blitz and Hammer Arm!
(Magmortar’s body becomes surrounded by redorange fire and it shoots at Stunfisk like a missile.
Then, Ursaring’s forearms glow gold and throws
them at Houndoom.)

Cilan: Quick, dodge them and use Mud Bomb and
Crunch!
(Stunfisk and Houndoom leap up and narrowly
avoid the attacks. Now, Stunfisk jumps into the air,
takes in a deep breath and fires a ball of brown
mud from its mouth at Ursaring, landing a direct
hit and dealing a considerable amount damage to
it. Houndoom’s teeth glow white, then it jumps up
and bites down on Magmortar, getting it at its
weak spot and doing a great amount of damage
and causes it to flinch.)
Cilan: Now, use Thunder Shock and Fire Fang!
(Stunfisk’s body glows white and its body becomes
surrounded in small yellow sparks. Then, its body
glows yellow and fires multiple beams of electricity
from its body at Magmortar, doing damage to it
and little sparks of electricity surround
Magmortar’s body. Houndoom’s mouth and fangs
become surrounded in red-orange flames and it
bites down on Ursaring, doing damage to it.)
Cilan: Nice job, you two.
Chris: Don’t give up now. Ursaring, Stone Edge!
(Ursaring slams its hands into the ground and
pointed light blue rock pillars appear and rush
towards Stunfisk, directly hitting it and doing great
damage.)

Cilan: Now, Stunfisk Sludge Bomb, now!
Houndoom, Flame Charge!
(Stunfisk fires a ball of brown sludge from its
mouth at Magmortar. Houndoom becomes
surrounded in red flames and runs fast towards
Ursaring.)
Chris: Dodge them, now!

damage to it. Now, Clefairy balls up his fist and a
silhouette of a golden meteor appears around it
and throws it at Boldore, landing a direct hit and
dealing a heavy amount of damage to it.)
Don George: That Iris sure is taking a chance with
that Outrage.
Jenny: Yeah, but I’m sure she knows what she’s
doing.
Lorraine: Boldore, Stone Edge! Lickilicky, you use
Giga Impact!
(Boldore’s body becomes outlined in white and two
rings of white pointed energy orbs appear and float
around its body. Afterwards, the glow on the orbs
fade and form into multiple gray jagged rocks.
Now, it lowers its head and fires the stones at
Axew, dealing a great amount of damage. Now,
Lickilicky’s body becomes surrounded in an
invisible energy, then a bright flash of yellow light
appears in front of its face and turns towards

Clefairy. Now, it shoots itself at him and an orb of
light purple energy with spiraling light yellow
streaks around it appear around its body and
slams into Clefairy with great force, doing a heavy
amount of damage.)

another, dealing damage to him.)

doing a great amount of damage. Boldore faints
and collapses to the ground.)

mouth at the Shadow, colliding with and cancelling
the attack.)

his head and eyes stop glowing.)

Axew: Axxx-ew!
(He opens his mouth and a turquoise ball of energy
appears in front of him and fires it at Lickilicky.
Clefairy gathers energy from the moon and forms
an orb of pink energy in between his hands.)
Clefairy: Clefairy!

(He fires it at Lickilicky.)
Lorraine: Dodge them!
(It swiftly evades each attack thrown at it.)
Lorraine: Now, go into Giga Impact!
(Its body becomes surrounded in an invisible
energy, then a bright flash of yellow light appears
in front of its face and turns towards Axew. Now, it
shoots itself at him and an orb of light purple
energy with spiraling light yellow streaks around it

great force, doing a heavy amount of damage.)

and the victory goes to Iris!
Iris: Yeah!
Axew: Axew!
Clefairy: Clefairy!
Iris: You guys were awesome.
Lorraine: Well, that was fun. Return, Lickilicky.
(She calls it back to its Pokeball.)

Lorraine: You’ve earned a good rest.
(Side wipe to the last battle, where Clemont is up
against a boy named Victor. He has black hair, red
eyes, and is wearing a red-orange t-shirt, blue
jeans and sneakers.)

Pokemon on the field except for Togekiss, who flies
