Summary

English Official Summary

Before arriving at Daybreak Town and Dawn’s next Pokémon Contest, our heroes stop by the Brussel Town Pokémon Contest already in progress. At the contest, Zoey wins her fifth Ribbon, which allows her to compete in the Grand Festival! After a big party that their old friend Candice throws in Zoey’s honor, Dawn decides she needs to come up with a new move to use in the upcoming Double Battle round of her next Contest. Frustration soon sets in, as she can’t seem to get the inspiration to come up with a fresh idea. And that’s when her friend—and rival—Zoey offers to help. With the rest of our heroes cheering them on, as well as some additional help from the Snowpoint Gym Leader Candice, Dawn does some creative visualization and comes up with an ingenious Fire- and Ice-type combination move, which she dubs “Flame Ice.” The move appears to be working perfectly...until it sputters out right before it is able to make contact with Zoey’s Leafeon and Kirlia. Not to be discouraged, Dawn promises to have the move down pat before her next Contest. Our heroes bid goodbye to their friends as they confidently set out toward Dawn’s next Contest, as well as Ash’s next Gym Battle.

Finnish Official Summary

Matkalla Daybreak Towniin Dawnin seuraavaan Pokémon-kilpailuun sankarimme piipahtavat Brussel Townissa, missä Pokémon-kilpailu on jo käynnissä. Siellä he näkevät, miten Zoey voittaa viidennen nauhansa, minkä ansiosta hän saa oikeuden kilpailla Suurjuhlassa! Heidän vanha ystävänsä Candice pitää suuret juhlat Zoeyn voiton kunniaksi. Juhlien jälkeen Dawn päättää tarvitsevansa uuden liikkeen seuraavan kilpailunsa tuplaottelukierrosta varten. Pian hän kuitenkin turhautuu, sillä Dawnista tuntuu, ettei hän vain millään keksi mitään hyvää uutta ideaa. Silloin hänen ystävänsä ja kilpakumppaninsa Zoey tarjoaa apuaan. Ystäviensä kannustamana, ja saatuaan vähän lisäapua Snowpointsalin johtajalta Candicelta, Dawn loihtii esiin luovia visuaalisia efektejä ja keksii nerokkaan jää- ja tulityypin yhdistelmäliikkeen, jolle hän antaa nimeksi Flame Ice! Se näyttäisi toimivan hienosti, kunnes sen voima lopahtaa juuri ennen kuin se kohtaa Zoeyn Leafeonin ja Kirlian. Dawn ei silti pety, vaan aikoo päättäväisesti saada liikkeen toimimaan seuraavaan kilpailuunsa mennessä. Niinpä sankarimme toivottavat hyvästit ystävilleen ja lähtevät itsevarmoina kohti Dawnin seuraavaa kilpailua ja Ashin saliottelua.

Russian Official Summary

На пути в Дейбрейк-таун, наши герои останавливаются в Брассел-тауне, где вовсю проходят состязания координаторов, на которых Зоуи одерживает свою пятую победу, дающую ей право на участие в Большом Фестивале. После вечеринки, которую Кендис устраивает в честь Зоуи, Доун решает, что ей надо придумать новое представление для двойной битвы, которая состоится в Дейбрейк-тауне. Вскоре, однако, радость сменяется досадой, когда Доун понимает, что не может придумать ничего интересного. Тут-то ей на помощь и приходит ее подруга Зоуи. При поддержке Кендис и своих друзей, Доун всё же придумывает яркое представление на основе приёмов покемонов огненного и ледяного типа, которое она называет Огненный Лёд. Выглядит представление прекрасно, однако, это не мешает Зоуи одолеть Доун в битве. Но Доун не отчаивается и обещает усовершенствовать своё представление. Наши герои прощаются со своими друзьями и продолжают свой путь к следующему состязанию Доун и битве Эша.

På deres vei mot Daybreak Town og Dawns neste Pokémonkonkurranse, stopper heltene våre i Brussel Town, hvor en Pokémonkonkurranse allerede er i gang, for å se Zoey vinne sin femte Ribbon, som vil gi henne muligheten til å delta i Grand Festival! Etter en stor fest, som deres gamle venn Candice arrangerer til ære for Zoey, bestemmer Dawn seg for at hun må finne på et nytt trekk som hun kan bruke i den forestående Dobbelkamp runden i hennes neste konkurranse. Men frustrasjonen begynner å bre seg når det går opp for henne at hun mangler inspirasjonen til å finne på noe nytt. Og det er da hennes venn og rival Zoey tilbyr seg å hjelpe. Mens resten av heltene våre heier på dem, og med litt ytterligere hjelp av deres venn og Snowpoint gymleder Candice, gjør Dawn litt kreativ visualisering og finner opp et genialt Ild- og Istype kombinasjonstrekk, som hun døper Flame Ice! Det ser ut til å fungere perfekt inntil det fusker rett før det skal til å treffe Zoeys Leafon og Kirla. Men Dawn nekter å la seg knekke, og hun lover å ha det i tipp topp stand før hennes neste konkurranse, og heltene våre tar farvel med deres venner, i det de med godt mot setter av sted mot både Dawns neste konkurranse, så vel som Ash sin neste gymkamp.

På sin väg mot Daybreak Town och Dawns nästa Pokémon-tävling, stannar våra Hjältar till vid Pokémon-tävlingen i Brussel Town, vilken redan pågår, för att se Zoey vinna sin femte Ribbon – som även kvalificerar henne för att tävla på Grand Festival! Efter en stor fest som deras gamla vän Candice ger till Zoeys ära, beslutar sig Dawn för att hon ska ha ett nytt move att använda i Dubbelstrids-omgången i hennes nästa Tävling. Men frustrationen sätter snart in, när hon börjar känna att hon verkar sakna inspiration att hitta på en fräsch, ny idé. Det är då hennes vän och rival Zoey erbjuder sin hjälp. De blir påhejade av resten av våra Hjältar, och med lite ytterligare hjälp av sin vän och Gymledare för Snowpoint Gym, Candice, söker Dawn en kreativ vision och kommer på en fyndig Eld och Is-typ av Kombinations-move, som hon döper till Flame Ice! Det ser ut att fungera perfekt, tills det förlorar skärpa alldeles innan kontakt kan uppnås med Zoeys Leafeon och Kirlia. Men Dawn låter sig inte nedslås, utan lovar att få fason på det före sin nästa Tävling, och våra Hjältar tar farväl av sina vänner för att tillitsfullt ge sig av både mot Dawns nästa Tävling och Ash nästa Gymstrid.

Nice to see there`s at least a concept for Hikari`s main appeal. Though, Hinoarashii still seems a bit overpowered for a Pokemon which just hatched.

Character Bios written:
- Rebecca:
Rebecca is the Pokémon Co-ordinator that Nozomi faced in the final round of the Mecabbage Town Pokémon Contest. She owns a Tsubotsubo that battled against Nozomi's Nyarmar in the final battle of the contest. Even though at first she was giving Nozomi a hard time by skillfully using her Tsubotsubo's Withdraw attack, she ended up losing to Nozomi after Nyarmar penetrated Tsubotsubo's defenses with a powerful Shadow Claw, and then knocked it out using Iron Tail.

- Rebecca's Tsubotsubo:
Rebecca's Tsubotsubo is the Pokémon that Nozomi's Nyarmar faced off against in the final battle of the Mecabbage Town Pokémon Contest. Nozomi's Nyarmar proved to be a fast opponent for it, as it dodged effectively Tsubotsubo's Constrict attack. However, its powerful defenses gave Nyarmar a hard time, as its Fury Swipes couldn't damage it at all when it was hiding inside its shell. Eventually, after Tsubotsubo's defenses were penetrated by its opponent's Shadow Claw, it was knocked out by Nyarmar's Iron Tail attack, which earned Nozomi the victory and her fifth ribbon.

- Nozomi's Kirlia:
Nozomi's Kirlia was first seen in a practice contest battle against Hikari in Mecabbage Town. It battled alongside Nozomi's Leafia against Hikari's Manmoo and Hinoarashi. Nozomi effectively combined her Kirlia's and Leafia's Magical Leaf attacks with Kirlia's Psychic to knock out both of Hikari's Pokémon with a single hit.

- Nozomi's Leafia:
Nozomi's Leafia was first seen in a practice contest battle against Hikari in Mecabbage Town. It battled alongside Nozomi's Kirlia against Hikari's Manmoo and Hinoarashi. Nozomi effectively combined her Kirlia's and Leafia's Magical Leaf attacks with Kirlia's Psychic to knock out both of Hikari's Pokémon with a single hit.

- Suzuna:
Suzuna attended Nozomi's battle in Mecabbage Town, where she met Satoshi, Hikari and Takeshi who were also there for the same reason. Her cheering encouraged Nozomi to do her best in the last battle of the Mecabbage Tournament, where Nozomi's Nyarmar was facing a Tsubotsubo with really powerful defenses. After winning the battle and earning her fifth ribbon, Nozomi thanked Suzuna for her encouragement. She later threw a big party to celebrate Nozomi's victory.

The day after the contest, Suzuna and Nozomi helped Hikari to come up with a new contest combination that could be used as a finishing move for a double contest battle. She gave Hikari an idea on how to use her Manmoo's Ice Shard attack more effectively by demonstrating a beautiful Ice Shard and Razor Leaf combination using her Yukinooh.

-Suzuna's Yukinooh:
Yukinooh was also used by Suzuna when she wanted to show Hikari a more effective way of utilizing her Manmoo's Ice Shard to create a contest combination. In Suzuna's demonstration, it combined its Ice Shard and Razor Leaf attacks to create a breeze containing ice fragments around her, thus showing how Ice Shard can be used to create a combination without freezing the partner Pokémon.
