==Plot==
 
The episode begins with Ash and his friends traveling through a tunnel and when they emerge they receive a very cold welcoming, as they have now entered the snowy northern part of Sinnoh. Just ahead is Shelter Town, the final stop before Snowpoint City, so the gang decides to take a pit stop before moving on. While in a Pokémon Center, Dawn asks after a package that is due to be delivered to her, however Nurse Joy informs her it hasn't arrived yet. To pass the time, Dawn lets Buneary out of her Poké Ball to let her have some fun with the other Pokémon. Then, a stranger comes racing for Buneary and starts to hug and play around with it chanting the phrase "so cute", the stranger is a girl called Marilyn, who believes cute Pokémon are the best. She explains that her criteria for cuteness is that the Pokémon must be under 2 feet tall and must not have evolved, therefore Dawn introduces her Piplup to Marilyn to see if she think Piplup is cute or not. Despite the fact that he meets her requirements, Marilyn discourages the fact he's cute and starts to remark on the features that turns off Piplup's cuteness, thus enraging Dawn and causing Piplup to be paralyzed in shock. After calling Dawn "Dawny", claiming it was a cuter name than Dawn, Marilyn is challenged to a battle, which she accepts.
 
   
Once the battle begins, Dawn uses Buneary causing [[Marilyn]] to infatuate over Buneary's cuteness, almost forgetting about the battle, she then sends out Cherubi. At the start of the battle, Marilyn orders Cherubi to use Protect when Buneary attacks with Ice Beam... however Cherubi still recoils in pain even though Protect was successful. Brock realizes that this is simply Marilyn's attempt to stall the battle, making him angry and he orders her to battle properly or be disqualified. Marilyn tells Brock what she thinks battling is, which is the valiant of a Pokémon and how it stands up after being hit, thus enraging Brock and yells at her some more, she finally obeys Brock and defeats Buneary with a single SolarBeam. Marilyn is very pleased with herself, while Brock refuses to believe that a Pokémon's cuteness is their only asset in battle.

==Synopsis==
  +
Still traveling to Snowpoint City, [[Ash Ketchum/Diamond & Pearl|Ash]] and his friends meet a trainer named [[Marilyn]], who only loves Pokémon that are cute. After criticizing [[Dawn's Piplup]], she quickly challenges Dawn to a battle. However, during the battle, she does not give her Cherubi any orders. What kind of specific strategy does she have in mind?
   
Nearby Team Rocket plans on taking Marilyn's Cherubi by tricking her to battle them, seeing as they have no Pokémon below 2 ft or unevolved, Jessie tells them to use Mime Jr., James hastily disagrees but has no choice. Jessie confront Marilyn and tells her she wants to battle and shows Mime Jr. to her, Marilyn however disagrees that it's cute crushing Mime Jr. feelings. Soon, James is comforting his devastated Pokémon while Jessie and Meowth work on the plan some more.
+
==Episode Plot==
  +
Brock notices that past the tunnel they are to Shelter Town. Before the end, a cold wind blows, freezing them. They see that past the tunnel the surroundings are covered in snow and ice, so they go to Pokémon Center. As they reach the Center, Dawn asks Nurse Joy if there is a package for her, but Joy has not found anything. Dawn sends Buneary and a girl comes and hugs her hard, as she is cute. The girl is Marilyn, who loves cute Pokémon and thinks it is all to it: they need to be short, unevolved and look lovely. Dawn wants Marilyn to check Piplup, but she is not impressed by her beak, eyes or the shape of the head, making Piplup very shocked and sad.
   
Brock tells Marilyn that he wants to battle her and says that she can pick the Pokémon she battles, allowing her to choose from Sudowoodo and Croagunk. Marilyn doesn't want to battle either of them because they aren't cute and asks Brock if he has another Pokémon. Brock releases Happiny and Marilyn wants to battle her, Brock accepts but as long as Sudowoodo and Croagunk battle too. Marilyn agrees so a 3 on 3 battle it is. Then James enters disguised as a Pokémon Battle referee offering his services and Marilyn, not realizing this is a little too convenient, asks him to officiate the battle.
+
Marilyn wants Dawny (the latter's new nickname) to have a battle with Buneary. Dawn accepts the challenge and goes away. Dawn is very annoyed by the girl and promises to get the battle on. Team Rocket sees what they did and think the boss would like her Pokémon as a gift. Dawn sends Buneary, making Marilyn love Buneary, but sends her Cherubi. Jessie admits Cherubi is cute, while Meowth plans that the boss would love Cherubi if he had one. Buneary uses Dizzy Punch, hitting Cherubi. Buneary uses Ice Beam, so Cherubi uses Protect, but seems in pain, although it shouldn't. Ash thinks Marilyn does not want to battle, but to see more cute Pokémon. Brock explains Cherubi should not be in agony, but Marilyn orders him to stay away. She tells them the battles are to see how a cute Pokémon stands the attacks and still survives valiantly.
   
After James announce the rules, Marilyn and Brock sends out Cherubi and Sudowoodo, Sudowoodo starts with Double-Edge which scores a direct hit, making Cherubi fall down dramatically. Marilyn however ignores the fact it hit and remarks on how Cherubi took the hit, causing Brock to scold her some more. Brock orders Sudowoodo to use Mimic, causing it to fall down dramatically too. Brock then tells Sudowoodo to use Fake Tears and Sudowoodo is soon sobbing on the floor. This causes Marilyn to start realizing the true battle strength of Pokémon. Wanting to move things along so he can see what other Pokémon Marilyn has, James declares the round as a tie as the two Trainers return their Pokémon to their Poké Balls.
+
Brock tells her the battles are actually to test one's strength by putting the Pokémon to the very best. Marilyn calls Brock Brocky, telling him he sounds old by the attitude. He warns her he will disqualify her if she does not abide this rule. Cherubi uses Magical Leaf, which eventually hits Buneary. Cherubi then Tackles Buneary, hitting her hard. Buneary uses Dizzy Punch, but Cherubi evades and hits Buneary with Solar Beam. Marilyn wants to see more of Buneary's valiant battling, but she faints, so Marilyn is the winner. Ash thinks Marilyn does not care if she won or lost, while Brock suspects this attitude of her is wrong. Team Rocket saw the battle and James orders Meowth to make a machine to get Cherubi. Meowth tells him they don't have money, so Jessie proposes to get a battle with a cute Pokémon. James sends Carnivine, but Jessie and Meowth do not think it as a cute Pokémon, but know Mime Jr. should be cute enough.
   
Brock sends out Croagunk while Marilyn sends out Chingling, and the battle restarts. Croagunk gains the upper hand against Chingling, this is all however an act played out by Marilyn to see Chingling take the attacks, Dawn then tells her to get to the point with Marilyn hastily obeying. Marilyn orders Chingling to use Growl along with Confusion and Croagunk is almost knocked out. Brock isn't willing to give up and encourages Croagunk to get up, and not wanting to let Brock down it does and uses Brick Break, defeating Chingling. Brock tells how any Pokémon can be valiant regardless of their looks, unless the Trainer bonds with their Pokémon. The two then return their Pokémon, with Brock congratulating Croagunk on an excellent battle.
+
Jessie, in disguise, encounters Marilyn and wants a battle with her super cute Pokémon. Mime Jr. comes, but Marilyn is not convinced, as the red nose makes it not so much cute, shocking Mime Jr. Dawn does not understand this Marilyn, so Brock decides to have a battle with Marilyn to prove her wrong that one cannot judge a Pokémon by its look. Marilyn has to pick Sudowoodo or Croagunk to battle. Dawn and Ash do not think them as cute, but Brock responds they are as cute as they can get. Marilyn does not want to battle with either of them and asks Brock if he has more Pokémon. Brock sends Happiny, so Marilyn wants to battle, though Brock wants a 3-on-3 match, as he wants Sudowoodo and Croagunk to battle as well. James comes in disguised as a referee, so Marilyn wants him to be the referee in the battle, so James accepts, as it is a part of the plan.
   
With the lesson taught by Brock, she switches a Poké Ball containing a cute Pokémon for another Pokémon, which her friends mocked her for thinking it was her cutest Pokémon and thus changed her team to fit their perception. She then sends it out revealing it to be a Shellder, shocking Meowth and Jessie who are peeking from outside. Brock sends out Happiny, however Jessie and Meowth interrupts and tells Marilyn how disappointed they are with Shellder, then James starts to go into Marilyn's bag and steal two Poké Balls contain Cherubi and Chingling, angering Marilyn who orders Shellder to use Brine to catapult itself to Team Rocket. After being hit by Shellder and dropping the two balls, Marilyn orders Shellder to use Ice Beam causing Team Rocket to be frozen rock solid, Happiny uses Pound to send Team Rocket blasting off.
+
Marilyn sends Cherubi and Brock his Sudowoodo. Sudowoodo starts with Double-Edge, hitting Cherubi. Marilyn is excited, but Brock reminds her that she should focus on the battle, not the Pokémon. Since Marilyn does not want to hear, Sudowoodo uses Mimic, then Fake Tears. Marilyn admits it was valiant, and per Dawn's order, James calls it a tie. Brock sends Croagunk and Marilyn her Chingling. Croagunk starts with Poison Jab, hitting Chingling, then uses Poison Sting, hurting it and uses Brick Break. Chinging uses Growl and uses Confusion on Croagunk. James asks if Croagunk can battle, but Brock tells Croaunk to stand up, which he does. Brock proves her that with some words of encouragement, any Pokémon is valiant. With a Brick Break. Croagunk defeats Chingling.
   
At the end of the day, Dawn receives the package from her mother. Inside is some clothing and a letter from Johanna telling Dawn that as Snowpoint City is very cold she has sent some winter clothing for her, Ash and Brock. Ash and Brock receive very snazzy thick blue jackets while Dawn receives a gorgeous pink coat, new boots and a scarf. Marilyn remarks on how great they look, and now ready to brave the cold weather the gang prepare to head into Snowpoint City so Ash can battle for his seventh Sinnoh Gym Badge.
+
Marilyn admits that she did find Croagunk valiant and before she sends her final Pokémon, goes somewhere and replaces her Poké Ball. She caught this Pokémon for cuteness, but people thought it was weird to think it was cute, but after Brock's speech, she decides looks do not matter much. She sends Shellder, making Jessie and Meowth shocked, so Brock sends Happiny. Jessie and Meowth come to the battle field and tell Marilyn Shellder is not cute. James grabs the other two Poké Balls. Shellder uses Brine and hits Team Rocket, getting Marklyn's Poké Balls, then Shellder uses Ice Beam to freeze them. With Happiny's Pound, they blast off.

Brock thinks his job to change Marilyn's attitude is done. Later, Dawn got a package from her mom. As Snowpoint City is cold, she has made Dawn, Ash and a rock some jackets to keep them warm. Marilyn thinks in these jackets they look cute.

However, during the battle, she does not give her Cherubi any orders. What kind of specific strategy does she have in mind?

Episode Plot

Brock notices that past the tunnel they are to Shelter Town. Before the end, a cold wind blows, freezing them. They see that past the tunnel the surroundings are covered in snow and ice, so they go to Pokémon Center. As they reach the Center, Dawn asks Nurse Joy if there is a package for her, but Joy has not found anything. Dawn sends Buneary and a girl comes and hugs her hard, as she is cute. The girl is Marilyn, who loves cute Pokémon and thinks it is all to it: they need to be short, unevolved and look lovely. Dawn wants Marilyn to check Piplup, but she is not impressed by her beak, eyes or the shape of the head, making Piplup very shocked and sad.

Marilyn wants Dawny (the latter's new nickname) to have a battle with Buneary. Dawn accepts the challenge and goes away. Dawn is very annoyed by the girl and promises to get the battle on. Team Rocket sees what they did and think the boss would like her Pokémon as a gift. Dawn sends Buneary, making Marilyn love Buneary, but sends her Cherubi. Jessie admits Cherubi is cute, while Meowth plans that the boss would love Cherubi if he had one. Buneary uses Dizzy Punch, hitting Cherubi. Buneary uses Ice Beam, so Cherubi uses Protect, but seems in pain, although it shouldn't. Ash thinks Marilyn does not want to battle, but to see more cute Pokémon. Brock explains Cherubi should not be in agony, but Marilyn orders him to stay away. She tells them the battles are to see how a cute Pokémon stands the attacks and still survives valiantly.

Brock tells her the battles are actually to test one's strength by putting the Pokémon to the very best. Marilyn calls Brock Brocky, telling him he sounds old by the attitude. He warns her he will disqualify her if she does not abide this rule. Cherubi uses Magical Leaf, which eventually hits Buneary. Cherubi then Tackles Buneary, hitting her hard. Buneary uses Dizzy Punch, but Cherubi evades and hits Buneary with Solar Beam. Marilyn wants to see more of Buneary's valiant battling, but she faints, so Marilyn is the winner. Ash thinks Marilyn does not care if she won or lost, while Brock suspects this attitude of her is wrong. Team Rocket saw the battle and James orders Meowth to make a machine to get Cherubi. Meowth tells him they don't have money, so Jessie proposes to get a battle with a cute Pokémon. James sends Carnivine, but Jessie and Meowth do not think it as a cute Pokémon, but know Mime Jr. should be cute enough.

Jessie, in disguise, encounters Marilyn and wants a battle with her super cute Pokémon. Mime Jr. comes, but Marilyn is not convinced, as the red nose makes it not so much cute, shocking Mime Jr. Dawn does not understand this Marilyn, so Brock decides to have a battle with Marilyn to prove her wrong that one cannot judge a Pokémon by its look. Marilyn has to pick Sudowoodo or Croagunk to battle. Dawn and Ash do not think them as cute, but Brock responds they are as cute as they can get. Marilyn does not want to battle with either of them and asks Brock if he has more Pokémon. Brock sends Happiny, so Marilyn wants to battle, though Brock wants a 3-on-3 match, as he wants Sudowoodo and Croagunk to battle as well. James comes in disguised as a referee, so Marilyn wants him to be the referee in the battle, so James accepts, as it is a part of the plan.

Marilyn sends Cherubi and Brock his Sudowoodo. Sudowoodo starts with Double-Edge, hitting Cherubi. Marilyn is excited, but Brock reminds her that she should focus on the battle, not the Pokémon. Since Marilyn does not want to hear, Sudowoodo uses Mimic, then Fake Tears. Marilyn admits it was valiant, and per Dawn's order, James calls it a tie. Brock sends Croagunk and Marilyn her Chingling. Croagunk starts with Poison Jab, hitting Chingling, then uses Poison Sting, hurting it and uses Brick Break. Chinging uses Growl and uses Confusion on Croagunk. James asks if Croagunk can battle, but Brock tells Croaunk to stand up, which he does. Brock proves her that with some words of encouragement, any Pokémon is valiant. With a Brick Break. Croagunk defeats Chingling.

Marilyn admits that she did find Croagunk valiant and before she sends her final Pokémon, goes somewhere and replaces her Poké Ball. She caught this Pokémon for cuteness, but people thought it was weird to think it was cute, but after Brock's speech, she decides looks do not matter much. She sends Shellder, making Jessie and Meowth shocked, so Brock sends Happiny. Jessie and Meowth come to the battle field and tell Marilyn Shellder is not cute. James grabs the other two Poké Balls. Shellder uses Brine and hits Team Rocket, getting Marklyn's Poké Balls, then Shellder uses Ice Beam to freeze them. With Happiny's Pound, they blast off.

Brock thinks his job to change Marilyn's attitude is done. Later, Dawn got a package from her mom. As Snowpoint City is cold, she has made Dawn, Ash and a rock some jackets to keep them warm. Marilyn thinks in these jackets they look cute.

Trivia

  • Professor Oak's Pokémon lecture: Xatu
  • A new eyecatch makes its debut in this episode. It features Brock, marking his first time being at the center of an eyecatch.
  • Dawn's winter clothing resembles the clothing worn by her game counterpart in Pokémon Platinum (her hair clips and hat are different), while the jackets worn by Ash and Brock resemble those worn by Lucas.
  • Ambipom was not removed from the opening despite leaving the main cast in the previous episode.
  • This is the first time Sudowoodo has used Fake Tears since its evolution 111 episodes ago.
  • This is the final episode to be aired solely in a 4:3 aspect ratio in the dub. Starting with the following episode, the dub would adopt the aspect ratio change and high-definition presentation first seen in the original Japanese version with The Lonely Snover!; however, after just five episodes Cartoon Network started to become inconsistent with the aspect ratio, switching between 4:3 and 16:9 every few episodes, though high-definition presentations were maintained in all cases.
  • Team Rocket doesn't recite their motto in this episode.

Mistakes

  • When Dawn was holding the box of clothes and walking toward the benches, Piplup was nowhere to be seen. However, when the screen zoomed to the box and bench, Piplup is seen near the box.
  • When Dawn's Buneary and Cherubi were battling, Cherubi didn't have to charge up when using SolarBeam.
