Episode Plot编辑






  • This is the third instance a Gym Battle takes place in the fifth episode of a series. The first being Showdown in Pewter City and the second being Triple Leaders, Team Threats.
  • This is the first time since A Gruff Act To Follow! that Ash has lost to the first gym in a Region. The first time was Showdown in Pewter City.
  • This episode marks the return of a running gag which was popular until the Best Wishes series: A character proposing to an attractive female. However this gag has a new twist to it: Bonnie would ask the female to be Clemont's girlfriend but Clemont would intervine saying he's not interested and he would use his Aipom Arm to drag Bonnie away.
  • This is the first episode of the XY series that Team Rocket does not appear in.
