English Official Summary

The moment for Ash to challenge Volkner for his eighth Gym Badge is finally here, and of course our hero is very excited. As the battle gets under way, Ash soon discovers just how good Volkner is when the Sunyshore Gym Leader takes an early lead. But Ash’s confidence and courage are unwavering. In the next matchup, Pikachu faces Volkner’s powerful Electivire—and much to Volkner’s surprise, Pikachu wins! With the score tied, Ash’s Infernape faces Volkner’s powerful Jolteon. Some speedy and hard-hitting Mach Punches from Infernape catch both the Gym Leader and his Pokémon by surprise, and Ash takes the lead! It comes down to Volkner’s Luxray versus Ash’s Infernape. It seems as if Infernape is going to go out of control when its Blaze Ability kicks in, and everyone is worried! But Ash’s faith in Infernape is unflappable, and Infernape calms down enough to listen to his commands. With a powerful display of force, Infernape defeats Luxray, allowing Ash to win his eighth Gym Badge, the Beacon Badge! Our heroes bid a fond farewell to Volkner and Flint, who promise to root for Ash in his next big challenge...because after winning eight Gym Badges, he’s headed for the Sinnoh League!

Finnish Official Summary

Ashin tilaisuus voittaa kahdeksas salimerkki Volknerilta on vihdoinkin käsillä ja sankarimme on tietenkin aivan täpinöissään. Ottelun edetessä Ashille kuitenkin selviää, miten hyvä Volkner oikeasti on, ja tilanne on pian yksi-nolla Volknerin hyväksi. Ashin itsevarmuus ja rohkeus eivät kuitenkaan horju ja kun Pikachu kohtaa Volknerin vahvan Electiviren, Volknerin suureksi yllätykseksi Pikachu voittaa! Tasoitettuaan tilanteen Ash heittää Infernapen Volknerin Jolteonia vastaan. Jolteon on tietenkin huippuvahva, mutta muutama nopea ja voimakas Mach Punch yllättävät niin salijohtajan kuin hänen Pokémoninsakin ja ottelu kääntyy Ashin eduksi kaksi-yksi! Lopulta molemmilla on enää yksi Pokémon jäljellä – Volknerin Luxray vastaan Ashin Infernape. Yllättäen Infernape tuntuu joutuvan aivan pois tolaltaan Roihu-kykynsä takia ja saa kaikki huolestumaan. Ash uskoo kuitenkin Infernapeen varauksetta ja se rauhoittuukin tarpeeksi kuunnellakseen Ashin käskyjä. Niinpä osoittaen suurta voimaa, se voittaa Luxrayn, ja Ash saa itselleen Beacon- merkin – KAHDEKSANNEN salimerkkinsä! Siispä sankarimme lähtevät seuraavaksi kohti Sinnoh-liigaa ja toivottavat sydämelliset hyvästit Volknerille ja Flintille. Sinnoh-liiga – täältä tullaan!

Dutch Official Summary

Eindelijk is het moment aangebroken waarop Ash zijn achtste Gym Badge kan winnen van Volkner en natuurlijk is onze held zeer opgewonden. Als het Gevecht aan de gang is echter, ontdekt Ash als snel hoe goed Volkner is en het is al snel een tegen nul voor Volkner. Maar het vertrouwen en de moed van Ash zijn onwankelbaar en als Pikachu tegenover Volkners krachtige Electivire staat, wint Pikachu, tot verbazing van Volkner. Bij een gelijke stand, staat de Infernape van Ash tegenover de Jolteon van Volkner die natuurlijk super sterk is, maar een paar snelle en krachtige Mach Slagen verrassen zowel de Gym Leader als zijn Pokémon en nu staat het twee tegen een voor Ash. Uiteindelijk, met nog een Pokémon over aan beide zijden, wordt het Volkners Luxray tegen de Infernape van Ash, totdat het lijkt alsof Infernape buiten zinnen raakt met zijn Vaardigheid Vlamgloed, tot grote ongerustheid van iedereen. Het vertrouwen van Ash in Infernape is echter oneindig en Infernape kalmeert genoeg om te luisteren naar de bevelen van Ash. Met een krachtig machtsvertoon verslaat hij Luxray, zodat Ash de Beacon Badge, zijn achtste Badge wint! Nu gaan onze helden op naar de Sinnoh League. Ze zeggen Volkner en Flint gedag en het is Sinnoh League, we komen eraan!

Norwegian Official Summary

Øyeblikket hvor Ash kan vinne sin åttende Gym Badge fra Volkner er endelig her, og selvsagt er vår helt veldig gira. Men når kampen kommer igang, oppdager Ash snart hvor god Volkner er, og det er snart en-null i Volkners favør. Men selvtilliten og motet til Ash er urokkelig, og når Pikachu møter Volkners mektige Electivire, til Volkners store overraskelse; vinner Pikachu! Stillingen er uavgjort når Ash sin Infernape møter Volkners Joelton – superkraftfull, så klart, men noen raske og kraftige Mach Punches gir både Gym-lederen og hans Pokémon en overraskelse, og nå er stillingen to-en i Ash sin favør! Endelig, med en Pokémon igjen på begge sider, er det Volkners Luxray mot Ash sin Infernape, til det virker som om Infernape skal komme ut av kontroll med Flammehav evnen sin, og alle er bekymret. Men Ash sin tillit til Infernape er fjellstø, og Infernape roer seg nok til å høre på Ash sine kommandoer, og med en mektig maktoppvisning slår den Luxray, og Ash vinner Beacon Badge – hans åttende Badge! Nå, på vei mot Sinnoh League, sier våre helter varmt farvel til Volkner og Flint, og Sinnoh League; her kommer de!

Swedish Official Summary

Det har äntligen blivit dags för Ash att vinna sin åttonde Gym Badge från Volkner, och självklart ser vår hjälte fram emot det med stora förhoppningar. Men när striden sätter igång upptäcker Ash snart hur duktig Volkner verkligen är, och snart är ställningen ett noll till Volkners fördel. Men Ashs självförtroende och mod sviker aldrig, och när Pikachu står inför Volkners kraftfulla Electivire vinner Pikachu – till Volkners stora förvåning! Med poängställningen utjämnad står Ashs Infernape inför Volkners Jolteon – som självklart är enormt kraftfull. Men med några snabba och kraftfulla Mach Punch överraskas både Gym-ledaren och hans Pokémon, och plötsligt står det två ett till Ashs fördel! Slutligen, med en Pokémon kvar för endera sida ställs Volkners Luxray mot Ashs Infernape tills det verkar som om Infernape ska förlora kontrollen över sin förmåga Eldhav, vilket gör alla oroliga. Men Ash har en orubblig tilltro till Infernape och till slut lugnar den ner sig tillräckligt för att lyssna till Ashs kommandon. Med en enorm kraftsamling bekämpar den Luxray och Ash vinner sin Beacon Badge – hans ÅTTONDE Badge! Våra hjältar tar ett kärt farväl av Volkner och Flint, och sedan är det Sinnoh Ligan nästa – nu är de på väg!

Danish Official Summary

Nu er tidspunktet omsider kommet, hvor Ash skal vinde sit 8. Sal Badge fra Volkner, og vores helt er selvfølgelig helt oppe at køre. Da kampen går i gang står det dog hurtigt klart, præcis hvor god Volkner egentlig er, og snart står det et-nul til Volkner. Men Ash’ mod og selvtillid vakler ikke, og da Pikachu er oppe mod Volkners stærke Electivire, vinder Pikachu til Volkners store overraskelse! Nu står det lige, og Ash’ Infernape står over for Volkners Jolteon, som naturligvis er superstærk, men et hurtigt og kraftfuldt Match Punch eller to falder som en overraskelse for både Sal-lederen og hans Pokémon, og nu står det så 2-1 til Ash! Til slut, da der er én Pokémon tilbage på hver side, står Volkners Luxray over for Ash’ Infernape. På et tidspunkt synes Infernape næsten at være ustyrlig med sin Ildhav evne, til alles store bekymring. Men Ash’ tiltro til Infernape er urokkelig, og da Infernape falder tilstrækkeligt meget ned til at kunne lytte til Ash’ ordrer, overvinder den Luxray, så Ash vinder et Beacon Badge..hans ottende Badge! Nu tager vores helte hjerteligt afsked med Volkner og Flint og begiver sig på vej. Sinnoh-liga  – her kommer de!

Script Error

Denji in the Japanese version apologizes to Satoshi for having to make him wait for their rematch battle. In the English dub, doesn't apologize.

Volkner: Welcome back. Today's a great day for a battle, so let's give it all we've got, agreed?
Denji: Satoshi-kun, I'm sorry for making you wait.
(デンジ): サトシ君 待たせてしまったな。
06:07

Script Error

The English dub removed an extra line where Satoshi told himself to calm down a bit during the battle.

Ash: Okay, it'll be all right.
Satoshi: It's fine. Calm down.
(サトシ): 大丈夫だ。 落ち着け。
08:25

Script Error

The English dub implies that James had to use the back door at his house all the time, something that the Japanese original did not state. Musashi and Nyarth both say it will be easy to get in that way in the Japanese version but in the English dub they state that the tower is their home now.

Character English Translation Japanese
James Let's try the back door. Works at home. All right, this time we'll enter from the back entrance. よし 今度は この裏口からだ。
Jessie And for now this is our home. Let's do this with ease. サクサクっといくわよ。
Meowth No prob. Home sweet home. Leave it to me! 任しとけなのニャ。

08:33

Script Error

In the Japanese original, Nyarth specifically identifies the new defense that Denji added to the door as an electromagnetic barrier. Meowth in the English dub doesn't state that.

Nyarth in the Japanese version also made a pun off of Denji's (デンジ) name as the word denji (電磁) means electromagnetic and the barrier was setup to protect the tower against 'danger'.

Meowth: You think a guy trying to conserve energy wouldn't be wasting watts on us.
Nyarth: An electromagnetic barrier... It's like Denji to put up something against denj-er.
(ニャース): デンジだけに電磁バリアが はってあるのニャ…。
10:22

Script Error

Musashi complains that her hair is ruined in the Japanese version but in the English dub Jessie states that she doesn't like getting perms.

Jessie: If I'm going to get my hair done, I don't want a perm.
Musashi: Geez, my hair is ruined...
(ムサシ): あ~ん…もう髪が台なしだわ。
12:29

Culture Reference

As Team Rocket enters the control room, the background sound effects are the Tricorder sounds from Star Trek: The Next Generation.
15:11

Script Error

Two background lines were removed in the English dub that were originally in the Japanese version while Nyarth and Kojiro were pressing buttons on the control panel.

Kojiro: Maybe it's this one...? Kojiro: Hey, uh...!
15:30

Script Error

Musashi is concerned about her hair being ruined again in the Japanese original but Jessie just accepts it as a cheap alternative to a beauty parlor in the English dub. James also makes a comment that his beauty parlor appointment isn't till next week while Kojiro was sulking that everything turns out bad for them. Meowth then tells the other two that he's setup appointments for them at the mental institution instead whereas Nyarth finally gives up on trying to steal the tower.

Character English Translation Japanese
Jessie It's cheaper than a beauty parlor. Ah, my hair again...! あ~ また髪が!
James My appointment's not 'til next week. Why does this happen?! 何で こうなるんだよ!
Meowth Well, I just made you both appointments for the rubber room. I'm tired of trying to get this tower... もうタワーのゲットは こりごりなのニャ。

16:20

Script Error

Oba in the Japanese version knows very definitely that Blaze was activated. Flint in the English dub shows a bit of doubt when he sees the ability activate.

Flint: That's got to be Blaze,
Oba: How cool, that's Blaze!
(オーバ): すっげえ ありゃ モウカだな。

Just as the title says, it was a shocking battle. I was quite surprised at first when Dodaitose was quickly knocked out by Elekible. And Goukazaru was finally able to control its blaze ability. This is by far the best gym battle ever.

I loved this episode. I know everyone had been waiting for this final gym battle for ages and it certainly lived up to its expectations. Denji fought well and Oba seemed to think he would win over Satoshi.

It was also nice to see that Pikachu and Infernape were now pretty powerful opponents. Mach Punch was pretty cool against Jolteon.

The music changes, especially Saikou Everyday being removed really killed the epicness of this battle at the end. It's amazing how much music plays in an episodes feel. Added the dub edits for this episode.

I really liked this episode, especially the last part, when the lights stopped working in the gym. It made it feel like a serious Pokémon battle, like the emphasis was just on Luxray and Infernape.
The scene looked really cool when Infernape used Flamethrower in the dark and just barely missed Luxray. That battle was really unforgettable, as well as the fact that Infernape activated Blaze. That looked really cool.
