Summary

English Official Summary

The last event of the Twinleaf Festival is upon us, and it’s the Festival Battle Challenge! The winner of the event will get the chance to battle none other than Barry’s father—the Sinnoh Battle Frontier Tower Tycoon, Palmer! Ash emerges victorious from the challenge, so he and Palmer begin a one-on-one battle with no Pokémon substitutions allowed on either side. Palmer brings out his gigantic and powerful Rhyperior, and Ash surprises everyone by calling out his Grotle! Although Rhyperior’s power seems overwhelming, Grotle’s tenacity completely impresses Palmer. In the end, Rhyperior’s final Rock Wrecker proves too much for Grotle to handle, and Palmer finishes with the victory. Ash takes his defeat well and gratefully accepts the Gold Trophy for winning the Festival Battle Challenge. Saying goodbye to Palmer and to Dawn’s mom, our heroes head toward the Sunyshore Gym and Ash’s next Sinnoh Gym challenge. And who should go along with them to challenge the same Gym himself but Palmer’s son—Ash’s rival and friend—Barry!

Finnish Official Summary

Twinleaf-festivaalin viimeinen tapahtuma on käsillä ja se on Festivaaliotteluhaaste! Tapahtuman voittaja saa vastaansa – ei ketään muuta kuin Barryn isän, Sinnohin Battle Frontier -tornijohtajan, Palmerin! Ash voittaa turnauksen ja niinpä hän ja Palmer aloittavat yksi yhtä vastaan -ottelun, jossa Pokémonien vaihtaminen ei ole kummallekaan sallittua. Palmer tuo kehään jättimäisen ja voimakkaan Rhyperiorinsa ja Ash yllättää kaikki kutsumalla esiin Grotlensa! Vaikka Rhyperior vaikuttaa epäsuhtaisen voimakkaalta vastukselta, Grotlen sisukkuus tekee valtavan vaikutuksen Palmeriin. Rhyperiorin viimeinen Rock Cannon osoittautuu kuitenkin liian kovaksi palaksi Grotlelle ja Palmer vie voiton. Ash suhtautuu tappioonsa tyynesti ja ottaa tyytyväisenä vastaan kultaisen pokaalin voitosta, jonka ansiosta hän alun perin pääsikin kokeilemaan taitojaan Palmeria vastaan. Hyvästeltyään ensin Palmerin ja sitten Dawnin äidin, sankarimme suuntaavat Sunyshoren salille Ashin seuraavaa saliottelua varten, ja kukapa tulekaan samaa matkaa esittämään haastetta samalle salille kuin Palmerin poika itse, Ashin ystävä ja kilpakumppani, Barry!

Russian Official Summary

Последнее событие фестиваля в Твинлиф – большой турнир. Победитель же турнира получит право сразиться ни с кем иным, как с отцом Барри, башенным магнатом боевого рубежа Синно Палмером. Победителем турнира становится Эш, и они с Палмером начинают сражение один на один, без права замены покемона. Палмер выбирает гигантского и почти непобедимого Райпериора, а Эш удивляет всех, выбрав Гротла. Не смотря на то, что Райпериор намного сильнее Гротла, умения последнего поражают Палмера. Но, не смотря на все мастерство Гротла, победу одерживают всё-таки Палмер и Райпериор. Эш, тем не менее, не расстраивается и с радостью принимает приз за первое место, которое и дало ему право сразиться с Палмером. Попращавшись с Палмером и мамой Доун, наши герои отправляются в гим Санишор, где состоится следующая гим-битва Эша. Прямо за ними же следует Барри, который также желает сразиться с гим-лидером Санишор.

Det siste på programmet i Twinleaf festivalen står for tur, og det er Festivalens kamputfordring! Vinneren av den kampen vil få muligheten til å kjempe mot ingen ringere enn Barrys far, Sinnoh Batlle Frontier Tårn-magnaten, Palmer! Ash går seirende ut, og han og Palmer begynner en en mot en kamp med ingen Pokémon-innbytter tillatt på noen av lagene. Palmer bringer ut sin gigantiske og sterke Rhyperior, og Ash overrasker alle med å kalle på sin Grotle! Selv om Rhyperior har en overlegen styrke, imponerer Grotles målbevissthet Palmer noe veldig, men Rhyperiors siste Rock Cannon viser seg å være for mye for Grotle å ta seg av, og Palmer avslutter med seier.

Swedish Official Summary

Twinleaf-festivalens sista evenemang är här, och det är festivalens Strids-utmaning! Vinnaren av det evenemanget får strida mot ingen mindre än Barrys far; Sinnohs Battle Frontier, Torn-magnaten Pamler! Ash träder fram som vinnare, och han och Palmer börjar en en-mot-en Strid med inga Pokémon-ersättare tillåtna på någon sida. Palmer tar fram sin gigantsiska och kraftfulla Rhyperior, och Ash överraskar alla med att kalla ut sin Grotle! Trots att Rhyperiors styrka verkar övermäktig, imponerar Grotles orubblighet enormt på Palmer, men Rhyperiors sista Rock Cannon visar sig vara för mycket för Grotle att hantera, och Palmer avgår med segern. Ash tar dock sitt nederlag bra, och tar tacksamt emot den Gyllene Trofén för vinsten som gav honom Striden mot Palmer från början. När våra Hjältar sagt adjö till Palmer och sedan till Dawns mamma, beger de sig iväg till Sunyshore Gym och Ashs nästa Sinnoh-Gymstrid, och vem skulle inte följa med dem för att utmana samma Gym själv, om inte Palmers son och Ashs rival och vän – Barry!

Danish Official Summary

Tiden er inde til Twinleaf festivalens sidste begivenhed, og det er festivalens Kampudfordring! Vinderen skal kæmpe imod ingen ringere end Barrys far, Sinnoh Battle Frontier Tårnmagnaten, Palmer! Ash løber af med sejren, hvorefter han og Palmer begynder på en én mod én kamp uden udskiftning af Pokémon på nogen af siderne. Palmer vælger sin kæmpemæssige, stærke Rhyperior, og Ash overrasker alle ved at vælge Grotle! Selvom Rhyperiors kræfter virker overvældende, bliver Palmer totalt imponeret over Grotles stædighed. Rhyperiors afgørende Rock Cannon er dog mere, end Grotle kan klare, og Palmer løber af med sejren. Ash tager dog sit nederlag pænt og tager taknemmeligt imod det gyldne trofæ, han får for den sejr, der gav ham kampen mod Palmer i første omgang. Efter at have taget afsked med først Palmer, så Dawns mor, begiver vore helte sig af sted mod Sunyshore-Salen og Ash’ næste Sinnoh Sal-kamp.

This episode shows that Ash needs to keep one or two of his high powered Pokemon with him for events like this so that he has a chance. While many will say this helped his Grotle level up a lot, the fact that he lost the battle doesn't help much.

This was a great episode. Dosidon was enormous, and it was a beast! Hayashigame really came close to winning, too. I really liked what happened after Hayashigame was forced to swallow it's own Energy Ball. Seeing Gureggru staring at a female Gureggru on tv was a funny little touch too.

I agree, had Ash kept Sceptile on him, he might have faired a better chance against Kurotsugu. I could even see Charizard/Lizardon being used for the battle, and ending it with Seismic Toss. I have to say, though, Grotle proved to be very strong with Overgrow, and the sheer power it showed, including raising the stone from the ground, was fun to watch. Definitely a good way to introduce Dosydon. Can`t wait or the next episode.

Yep. Without powerful heavyweight pokemon he doesn't have any chances in the league (especially against Paul). Well we have to wait what happens next. Maybe we're gonna see Buizel or Monferno evolving. Maybe he will change his training method. As for battle.. Grotle did even more he can. It was a pure luck for Ash his Grotle ate his own Energy Ball and became stronger. That's why he could delay knockout.

this was a great episode, it's too bad, that Ash didn't win, but why did he still get the trophy?
