Summary

English Official Summary

After successfully making their way through the first round of the Daybreak Town Pokémon Contest, Dawn, Ursula, and Jessilina (a disguised Jessie) all face challenges in Round Two. Jessilina and Ursula are the first to face each other. Ursula and her Plusle and Minun make quick work of Jessilina and her Seviper and Yanmega. Soon, the other Coordinators and their Pokémon get eliminated, so it all boils down to the final round! Dawn, with her Cyndaquil and Mamoswine, face off against Ursula and her Plusle and Minun. Suddenly, Ursula hits Cyndaquil and Mamoswine with the Encore attack, which allows Pokémon to use only their previous attack! Dawn's Pokémon are getting whipped, but Dawn thinks of a way out. She has her Pokémon attack each other, which sets them free from Encore. With mere seconds left on the clock, Dawn's Pokémon battle furiously...and win! So, with Dawn's fifth Ribbon in hand, her attention focuses on the upcoming Grand Festival. A clearly bitter Ursula assures her she won't win there. But, in the meantime, it's Ash's upcoming battle at the Sunyshore Gym that's next on our heroes' schedule, as Ash shoots for his eighth Gym Badge!

Após uma maneira bem-sucedida de passar pelo 1º round no torneio Pokémon da Cidade  Daybreak, Dawn, Ursula e Jessilina(uma Jessie disfarçada) encaram os desafios do 2º round. Jessie e Ursula se enfrentam 1º, mas Ursula e seus Plusle e Minun batalham rápido com Jessilina e seus Seviper e Yanmega.  Enquanto os outros coordenadores e seus Pokémon são eliminados, tudo caminha para o último round, com Dawn e seus Cyndaquil e Mamoswine, enfrentando Ursula e seus Plusle e Minun. De repente, Ursula atinge Cyndaquil e Mamoswine com o ataque chamado “Repetição” que só permite ao Pokémon usar seu ataque anterior! Enquanto os Pokémon de Dawn estão levando uma surra, Dawn tem a idéia de seus Pokémon atacarem um ao outro, libertando-os do Repetição. Restando poucos segundos, eles batalham furiosamente, e vencem! Então, com Dawn em posse de sua 5ª Fita, a atenção dela concentra-se no Grande Festival que está por vir, embora uma ressentida Ursula garanta a ela que Dawn não irá vencer. Mas enquanto isso, é a batalha de Ash no Ginásio Sunyshore que está na programação de nossos heróis, enquanto ele espera confiantemente pela sua 8ª Insígnia de Ginásio!

Finnish Official Summary

Daybreak Townin Pokémon-kilpailun ensimmäistä karsintakierroksesta selvinneet Dawn, Ursula ja Jessilina (Jessie valepuvussa) kohtaavat uudet haasteet toisella kierroksella. Jessie ja Ursula ovat vastakkain, ja Ursulan Plusle ja Minun hoitelevat rivakasti Jessilinan sekä hänen Seviperinsa ja Yanmegansa. Kun muut koordinaattorit Pokémoneineen karsiutuvat, kilpailu kulminoituu finaalikierrokseen, jossa Dawnin Cyndaquil ja Mamoswine kohtaavat Ursulan Pluslen ja Minunin. Yllättäen Ursula osuu Cyndaquiliin ja Mamoswineen hyökkäyksellä nimeltä Encore, joka sallii Pokémonin käyttää vain samaa hyökkäystä kuin aiemmin! Dawnin Pokémonit ottavat köniinsä, mutta sitten hän saa idean – Dawn käskee Pokémoniensa hyökätä toistensa kimppuun, mikä vapauttaa ne Encoren vaikutuksesta. Aikaa on jäljellä enää sekunteja, mutta he taistelevat raivokkaasti ja voittavat! Dawnin saatua näin viidennen nauhansa hän alkaa nyt keskittyä tulevaan Suurjuhlaan, joskin äkäinen Ursula yrittää vakuuttaa, että siellä Dawn ei voi voittaa. Sillä välin kuitenkin sankareidemme on määrä vierailla Sunyshoren salilla, missä Ash itsevarmana aikoo voittaa kahdeksannen salimerkkinsä!

Jessie y Úrsula se enfrentan entre sí en primer lugar, pero Úrsula y sus Plusle y Minun se encargan rápido de Jessilina y sus Seviper y Yanmega. Como los demás coordinadores y sus Pokémon son eliminados, todo se reduce a la ronda final, con Dawn y sus Cyndaquil y Mamoswine, enfrentándose a Úrsula y sus Plusle y Minun. De pronto, Úrsula acierta a Cyndaquil y Mamoswine con el ataque llamado Otra Vez, que sólo permite al Pokémon usar su último ataque. Como los Pokémon de Dawn están siendo apaleados, Dawn tiene la idea de que sus Pokémon se ataquen entre sí, liberándolos de la Otra Vez. Con pocos segundos en el reloj, luchan con furia, y ganan. Dawn, con el quinto listón, ya piensa en el próximo Gran Festival, aunque malhumorada, Úrsula le asegura que allá no ganará.

Russian Official Summary

Выгодно показав себя в первом круге, Доун, Урсула и Джессилина выходят во второй раунд. Джесси и Урсула встречаются друг с другом на арене, и Урсула со своими Пласлом и Майнуном с легкостью одерживают победу над Джесси и ее Севайпером и Янмегой. По мере того, как отсеиваются другие претенденты, становится ясно, что в финале схлестнутся Доун с ее Синдаквилом и Мамосвайном и Урсула с Пласлом и Майнуном. Урсула неожиданно атакует Синдаквила и Мамосвайна приемом под названием «бис», в результате которого покемоны могут использовать лишь последний выполненный ими прием. После определенных мучений, Доун придумывает способ избавления покемонов от «биса»: они должны атаковать друг друга! В итоге, битва заканчивается при практически равных результатах, но Доун всё же одерживает верх. Получив свою пятую ленту, Доун обращает свои взоры к Большому Фестивалю, несмотря на то, что Урсула заверяет ее в том, что ей там не победить. Далее в плане путешествия – Гим Санишор, где Эш попытается заработать свой восьмой значок!

Dutch Official Summary

Nadat Dawn, Ursula en Jessilina (een vermomde Jessie) succesvol de eerste ronde van de Daybreak Town Pokémon wedstrijd zijn doorgekomen, moeten ze het tegen elkaar opnemen in de tweede ronde. Jessie en Ursula moeten het eerst tegen elkaar opnemen, maar Ursula en haar Plusle en Minun verslaan Jessilina en haar Seviper en Yanmega. Terwijl de andere coördinators en hun Pokémon afvallen, is het tijd voor de laatste ronde. Dawn en haar Cyndaquil en Mamoswine nemen het op tegen Ursula en haar Plusle en Minun. Plotseling valt Ursula Cyndaquil en Mamoswine aan met een aanval, genoemd “Toegift”, waardoor de Pokémon alleen nog maar hun vorige aanval kunnen doen! Terwijl Dawn’s Pokémon worden toegetakeld, krijgt ze een idee en laat haar Pokémon elkaar aanvallen, zodat “Toegift” opgeheven wordt. Met nog maar enkele seconden te gaan, strijden ze vurig en winnen! Dawn wint haar vijfde Lintje en richt zich op het aankomende Grand Festival. Een lichtgeraakte Ursula verzekerd haar er nog even van dat ze daar niet zal winnen. Maar in de tussentijd hebben onze helden andere dingen aan hun hoofd en richten ze zich op Ash’s gevecht, dat hij in de Sunyshore Gym zal houden.

Norwegian Official Summary

Etter at de med hell har kommet seg gjennom den første runden av Daybreak Town-konkurransen, møter både Dawn, Ursula og Jessilina (en forkledt Jessie) utfordringer i andre runde. Jessie og Ursula møter hverandre først, men Ursula og hennes Plusle og Minun lager hakkemat av Jessilina og hennes Seviper og Yanmega. Mens de andre koordinatorene og deres Pokémon blir eliminert, koker det tilslutt ned til den siste runden, med Dawn og hennes Cyndaquil og Mamoswine, som skal opp mot Ursula og hennes Plusle og Minun. Plutselig slår Ursula Cyndaquil og Mamoswine med angrepet som heter Encore, som bare lar en Pokémon bruke sitt forrrige angrep! Mens Dawns Pokémon blir most, får Dawn en idé om å la sine Pokémon angripe hverandre, for å sette dem fri fra Encore. Med bare sekunder igjen på klokka slåss de heftig, og vinner! Så, med Dawns femte Ribbon trygt i hennes forvaring, fokuserer hun oppmerksomheten på den kommende Grand Festival, selv om en grinete Ursula forsikrer henne om at hun ikke vil vinne der. Men i mellomtiden er det Ash sin kamp på Sunyhore-gym som står på timeplanen, mens han venter på sin åttende Gym Badge!

Swedish Official Summary

Efter att ha lyckats ta sig vidare i första ronden av Pokémon-tävlingen i Daybreak Town står Dawn, Ursula och Jessilina (en förklädd Jessie) inför nya utmaningar i andra ronden. Jessie och Ursula får möta varandra först, men Ursula och hennes Plusle och Minun besegrar snabbt Jessilina och hennes Seviper och Yanmega. Allteftersom övriga koordinatorer och deras Pokémon blir utslagna hänger allt på sista ronden med Dawn och hennes Cyndaquil och Mamoswine, som ställs inför Ursula och hennes Plusle och Minun. Plötsligt attackerar Ursula Cyndaquil och Mamoswine med Encore, som gör att Pokémon bara får använda sin senaste attack! Medan Dawns Pokémon blir mörbultade kommer Dawn på tanken att låta sina Pokémon attackera varandra, vilket befriar dem från Encore. Med bara några sekunder kvar strider de våldsamt och vinner! När Dawn så har kammat hem sitt femte Ribbon tar hon sikte på nästa Grand Festival, även om en tjurig Ursula försäkrar henne om att hon inte kommer att vinna där. Men innan dess står Ashs strid på Sunyshore-gym på våra hjältars schema – en strid som han självsäkert förutspår ska leda till hans åttonde Gym Badge!

Danish Official Summary

Efter med held at have klaret sig igennem første runde af Daybreak Towns Pokémon-konkurrence, står såvel Dawn, Ursula og Jessilina (Jessie i forklædning) over for tredje rundes udfordringer. Jessie og Ursula bliver først sat over for hinanden, men Ursula og hendes Plusle og Minun gør kort proces med Jessilina og dennes Seviper og Yanmega. De andre koordinatorer og deres Pokémon sorteres efterhånden også fra, så det hele ender med, at Dawn og hendes Cyndaquil og Mamoswine skal kæmpe mod Ursula og hendes Plusle og Minun. Pludselig rammer Ursula Cyndaquil og Mamoswine med et angreb ved navn Encore, som binder Pokémon til udelukkende at bruge deres sidste træk! Dawns Pokémon bliver mast til plukfisk, men så får Dawn den ide at lade sine Pokémon angribe hinanden, hvilket frigør dem fra Encore. I kampens sidste sekunder kæmper de som gale og vinder! Da Dawn nu endelig har fået sit 5. Ribbon, vender hun opmærksomheden mod den kommende Store Festival, skønt en fornærmet Ursula forsikrer hende om, at hun ikke vil vinde der. I mellemtiden er det imidlertid Ash’ kamp i Sunyshore-salen der er på programmet, og han ser med sindsro frem til at vinde sit 8. Sal Badge!

Script Error

In a commercial for Pokémon: DP Sinnoh League Victors that aired during the ending credits of the English dub on Cartoon Network USA, two scenes still had the Japanese voices intact. The first scene was Musashi saying "Rocket start!" (ロケットスタート) and the second featured Pochama's Japanese voice actor Kozakura Etsuko (小桜エツ子) saying "Pocha~!" (ポッチ~!). Both of these errors did not have their English replacements dubbed over.

Paint Edit

Animation guidelines and Japanese text can be seen in the background that wasn't removed in post-production. Photoshop level adjusting can make it more pronounced.

Culture Reference

Urara's Plusle and Minun do movements very similar to the Dragonball fusion move when they use their attacks during the contest battle stage.
14:47

Script Error

The English dub's lines were changed a bit to reflect Dawn's nickname. James also had an extra line in the English dub which was just giggling in the Japanese version.

Character English Translation Japanese
Jessie Bad hair day. That brat girl... ジャリガ-ルってば。
James It becomes her. *No line* *No line*
Meowth A twerp perm. She's sparkling! ピカピカニャ。
Ursala That's some hairdo. To think I got to see "Diamond Dandruff" in person. My, so sparkly! So that's when you're called "Pikari". まぁ ピッカピカ。 ピカリってこういうときのことを言うのね。

19:06

Paint Edit

The English dub specifically states that Daybreak Town only has one Pokémon Contest per year. While this is a possibility, the Japanese version does not make that distinction.

Marian: That brings this year's exciting Daybreak Town Pokémon Contest to a close.
Momoan: The very enjoyable Pokémon Contest Asatsuki Contest has drawn to a close.
(モモアン): お楽しみいただきましたポケモンコンテスト アサツキ大会。
19:40

Script Error

In the Japanese version, Urara calls Musashi "Candy lady" instead of her Contest stage name "Candy Musalina" (キャンディ・ムサリーナ). The English version kept the standard name dub stage name 'Jessilina' for Jessie and instead of Jessie reflecting on her new nickname and stating that she liked it, the dub changes it to Jessie calling Ursala a nickname instead.

Ursala: Please, Jessilina, you've gotta be kidding.
Urara: I'll be the one to win, Candy lady.
(ウララ): 勝つのは私よ。キャンディーのお姉様。

Jessie: Dream on, Twirly Locks! Reality's right around the corner.
Musashi: Though, I quite like the term "lady"...

Incredible episode!! It was great to see Hikari pull off the ultimate Flame Ice combo, and the combo of Plusle and Minun was very powerful. It was also interesting to see how devastating Encore can really be, and Hikari's way of getting rid of its effects was simple yet effective. Finally, the animation was great.

I really enjoyed this episode. I usually don`t like the contest ones, because it`s so obvious Hikari will win. But when Urara used Encore, I truly thought Hikari would face defeat similar to Satoshi VS Shinji. It was great to see her turn it arond. Great episode.
Also, it was nice to see a horizontal line pattern when Hikari held up her ribbon, really added to the great animation.

To add to my previous comment, Anyway, this episode was probably one of my absolute favourite contest episodes. Usually, it`s painfully obvious Hikari will win, or she loses and it`s uneventful. But Urara quite systematically destroyed her, and I honestly thought she`d lose, but I was actually surprised this time, and she went or a come-from-behind victory. I still think Hinoarashii`s overpowered for just hatching, if it evolves in the next few months, I`ll be even more surprised, since it took Phanpy VERY long to evolve. In addition, Hinoarashii got run over by Manmoo, and Manmoo got "hurt' by Discharge and Spark. But overall, excellent episode, looking forward to the next.

OMG! That was an incredible contest episode, i loved almost everything about it like Hikari finally receiving her final ribbon, the grand Flame Ice Combo was timed perfectly and plusle/minun soo cute.
There are a few things that bothered me like how the creators decided to get plusle/minun to continuously use spark. Like seriously is there not another attack they could have got them to use, they must have used up to about 14 times on manmoo and hinoarashi before they got to the pikari joke. Also why was manmoo affected by spark and charge beam if it's part ground type?

Overall it all comes down to one gorgeous episode, definitely one of the best in DP!

Character Bios written:
- Urara: Urara faced off against Musashi in the first battle round of the Asatsuki Town Pokémon Contest. She was able to win the battle by skillfully using her Plusle and Minun's combination moves in order to block the attacks of Musashi's Habunake and Megayanma, thus easily subtracting a great deal of points from her opponent. The Cheering Pokémon helped Urara reach the final battle round of the contest, where she faced off against her rival, Hikari. Urara gave Hikari a hard time, as Plusle and Minun managed to successfully dodge many of their opponents' moves. Their Encore also had a significant impact in Hikari's strategy rendering her Manmoo and Hinoarashi susceptible to Plusle and Minun's attacks. However, with the help of Manmoo and Hinoarashi who encouraged her when she was feeling helpless, Hikari managed to pull off a last-minute victory after perfecting her Flame Ice combination towards the end of the battle, which helped her deduct enough points from Urara before the timeout. This made Urara really upset and she vowed to beat Hikari in the Grand Festival.

- Urara's Plusle: Urara used her Plusle and Minun in the battle rounds of the Asatsuki Town Pokémon Contest. The Cheering Pokémon were used against Musashi's Habunake and Megayanma in the first battle round, where they managed to easily block their opponents' attacks and overpower them with their combination moves, thus aiding Urara in easily subtracting a great deal of points from Musashi, and winning the battle in the end.

After defeating other co-ordinators too, Urara reached the final battle round of the contest, where her Plusle and Minun faced off against Hikari's Manmoo and Hinoarashi. Plusle and Minun's combined Encore rendered their opponents helpless and susceptible to their attacks. However, after Hikari got encouraged by her Manmoo and Hinoarashi, she managed to overcome her fears and pull off a turnaround victory by perfecting her Flame Ice combination, which resulted in her deducting enough points from Urara before the timeout.

- Urara's Minun: Urara used her Plusle and Minun in the battle rounds of the Asatsuki Town Pokémon Contest. The Cheering Pokémon were used against Musashi's Habunake and Megayanma in the first battle round, where they managed to easily block their opponents' attacks and overpower them with their combination moves, thus aiding Urara in easily subtracting a great deal of points from Musashi, and winning the battle in the end.

- Hikari's Manmoo: Hikari's Manmoo was used alongside Hikari's Hinoarashi in the battle rounds of the Asatsuki Town Pokémon Contest. Their combination move seemed to be imperfect, as the ice that engulfed Hinoarashi's Flame Wheel attack melted really quickly. Even though they hadn't mastered Flame Ice yet, Manmoo and Hinoarashi managed to win through all of the battle rounds, eventually reaching the finals where they faced off against Urara's Plusle and Minun. Plusle and Minun proved to be two pretty strong opponents for Manmoo and Hinoarashi, especially due to their combined Encore attack. However, after encouraging Hikari, who was feeling desperate, and helping her overcome her fears, Manmoo and Hinoarashi managed to master their Flame Ice combination and pull off a last-minute victory, helping Hikari earn her fifth ribbon and a place at the Grand Festival.
