Episode Plot

Ash and co. finally arrive at the Virbank City port, but before he could challenge the Gym Leader, he, Iris and Cilan run into Luke and Zorua again (in a surprise way when Zorua impersonates Ash's personality). Apparently he's planning on entering the Pokéstar Studios Movie contest and wants Ash, Iris and Cilan to help making the greatest film about the Unova Defense Force against his rival film director Jules and his Krookodile. Will Luke's newest film be a smash hit? And why is Team Rocket after the mysterious Meloetta since it starts to follow Ash to the Virbank City Gym in the end?

      • Cilan playing an evil alien controlling the Mecha Tyranitar is similar to a number of Godzilla movies in which variousdaikaiju were under the control of aliens bent on destroying Earth, including Destroy All Monsters.
      • The Mecha Tyranitar itself is a reference to Godzilla's longtime mechanical foe, Mechagodzilla.
