Le Combat du Club de Méanville-la-Vieille touche à sa fin. Sacha a déjà gagné sa place en finale, et Iris et Coupenotte (qui livre son premier tournoi) affrontent Luc et son Gringolem. Le combat fait rage, et Gringolem est sur le point de l’emporter lorsque Coupenotte s’enfuit devant une attaque particulièrement puissante. Soudain, nous nous apercevons que le Pokémon d’Iris a maîtrisé un nouveau mouvement : Colère, qui va permettre à Coupenotte de prendre sa revanche et de vaincre Gringolem ! La finale peut ensuite commencer, opposant Sacha et Pikachu à Iris et Minotaupe. Au même moment, Bérénice propose à Rachid de l’affronter dans un combat de Connaisseurs, mais la jeune fille réalise très vite que la technique de Rachid est mille fois supérieure à la sienne, et elle avoue sa défaite. Pendant ce temps, Pikachu et Minotaupe combattent de toutes leurs forces et sont bientôt au bord de l’épuisement. Sacha et Iris font preuve de la même détermination, mais une attaque Exploforce de Minotaupe accorde la victoire à Iris, qui remporte ainsi le combat et la compétition ! Iris et Sacha reçoivent les acclamations du public, impressionné par leur courage et leur volonté. Iris se voit ensuite offrir le très convoité Assortiment d'Ailes de Première Classe de Port Yoneuve, contenant les Ailes Santé, Force, Armure, Esprit, Mental, Sprint, et Jolie.

Italian Official Summary

Il Torneo di Lotta del Club Pokémon del Villaggio di Sciroccopoli ha raggiunto le battute finali. Dopo che Ash si assicura un posto in finale, tocca a Iris e Axew (al suo primo torneo) scontrarsi contro Luke e Golett. Inizialmente, è quest’ultimo ad avere la meglio sull’avversario, ma poi Axew, improvvisamente, impara una nuova mossa chiamata Oltraggio e riesce a sconfiggere Golett. Il giorno dopo ha luogo la finale: Ash e Pikachu affrontano Iris e Excadrill. Nel frattempo, Burgundy sfida Spighetto a una Lotta tra Intenditori. Molto presto, però, la ragazza si rende conto di non poter competere con la tecnica di Spighetto e ammette la sconfitta. In campo, intanto, Pikachu ed Excadrill ce la stanno mettendo tutta e sono ormai allo stremo delle forze. Nonostante la determinazione di entrambi i contendenti, alla fine è Iris a trionfare, grazie a un Focalcolpo di Excadrill. La folla esulta tanto per Iris, quanto per Ash, ma è Iris a ricevere l’ambito Set di Piume del Libeccio di prima qualità: piumsalute, piumpotenza, piumtutela, piumingegno, piumintuito e piumabella.

Paint Edit

Pikachu is missing irides. Iris disapproves with the poor animation coloring in this scene.
01:25

Script Error

As it was pointed out in the previous three episodes, the name of the tournament in the Japanese original was based off of Don George's name while the name of the tournament in the English dub was based of the name of the Pokémon Battle Club.

Narrator: We're coming in on the home stretch of the exciting Nimbasa Pokémon Club Battle.
Narrator Japanese: The Don Battles are a battle tournament hosted by Don George.
(ナレーター): ドン・ジョージが主催するバトルトーナメントドンバトル。

05:40

Script Error

Iris in the Japanese original wonders when her Kibago learned Outrage but Iris in the English dub isn't really surprised but is happy and she makes it seem like Axew learned Outrage during the battle which isn't necessarily the case.

Iris: It's so great you learned Outrage!
Iris Japanese: When did you learn Outrage?
(アイリス): いつのまに 逆鱗を?

08:25

Script Error

Dent's dialog is changed to French in the English dub.

Cilan: Mangez, mangez.
Cilan French Translation: Eat, eat.
Dent: All right, don't hesitate and start eating.
(デント): さぁ 遠慮なく食べて。

09:05

Script Error

The English dub yet again adds more French dialog for Burgundy that wasn't part of Cabernet's dialog in the Japanese original.

Burgundy: Bien sur, what you're really saying is you're scared to have a battle avec moi.
Burgundy French Translation: Of course, what you're really saying is you're scared to have a battle with me.
Cabernet: That's what you say, but could it be that you're scared to face me in reality?
(カベルネ): とか言って本当は私と対決するのが怖いんじゃない?

10:37

Script Error

The English dub replaced 'heated taste' with 'accurate evaluation' and 'Sommelier' with 'Pokémon connoisseurs'.

Cilan: Remember, as Pokémon connoisseurs, we must not let emotions take over, or we won't be able to do an accurate evaluation.
Dent: Our Sommelier showdown should have a heated taste that is in no way inferior to the final match.
(デント): 私とデントのソムリエ対決も決勝戦に劣らず熱いテイストになるはずよ。

10:48

Script Error

The English dub yet again adds more French dialog for Burgundy that wasn't part of Cabernet's dialog in the Japanese original.

Burgundy: Fermé la bouche!
Burgundy French Translation: Shut your mouth!
Cabernet: What's with you?
(カベルネ): ムッカ! なによ!

13:02

Script Error

The English dub yet again adds more French dialog for Burgundy that wasn't part of Cabernet's dialog in the Japanese original. Not only is it really poor grammar switching from one language to another mid-sentence, the English dub makes up the 'French' word "delicieuse", a combination of 'delicious' and 'connaisseuse'.

Cilan's statement looses a lot of the 'colouful descriptiveness' that Dent originally had. The English dub replaces the 'veludo woven from words' part of Dent's dialog with Cilan saying his evaluation will please.

Character English Translation Japanese
Burgundy Just like a refreshing beverage, I will present something light and trés bubbly! C'est delicieuse! I'll present a fizzy tasting with foaming as forceful as that of carbonated drinks. 炭酸飲料のように力強い泡立ちでスキッとしたテイスティングをプレゼントするわ。
Cilan Like the natural beauty of a crimson rose or the sweet scent of fine dark chocolat... My evaluation's sure to please! Look forward to veludo woven from words as gorgeous as a deep-red rose and with the sweet scent of chocolat! 深紅のバラのゴージャスさとショコラの甘い香りがするような言葉のビロードをお楽しみあれ!

15:56

Script Error

Neither Dent nor Cabernet said any French words in the Japanese original unlike the English dub.

Character English Translation Japanese
Burgundy I guess so, if that's what you want, d'accord. Well, if you say so, Dent... うん まぁデントがそう言うなら。
Cilan Merci, bien! Thank you. ありがとう。

18:41

Script Error

Freddy names all the feathers specifically unlike Takemitsu who just states that they are a set.

Freddy: Here's the beautiful seven-feather "Top-Class Driftveil Wing Set," containing Health, Muscle, Resist, Genius, Clever, Swift, and Pretty Wings!
Takemitsu: The winner Iris receives a full complete set of the first-class, super-valuable seven feathers of Hodomoe!
(タケミツ): 最高級 ホドモエ産 超貴重7枚の羽根フルコンプセットが贈られます。

I thought Satoshi was going to win this one the way they let Pikachu endure so long so it was good to see Iris win this. I feel as though a rematch between them will end up being a 3-on-3 which Satoshi will end up winning.

Nyarth's plan seems to get Pikachu as their trump card to help Rocket Gang some how so will have to wait and find out what happens there over the next few episodes.

A translation of the Rocket scene, for the convenience of those people having silly ideas that Nyarth getting fired and joining Satoshi and friends is somehow not a ruse:

*The Rockets are studying a map*
Musashi: We are here. The Musical Hall is here.
Kojiro: The Subway Station is here, and the drawbridge is here.
Nyarth: The plan is already in its final stage. There's one more trump card needed for absolute perfection, though.
Musashi: One more trump card? What do you mean?
Nyarth: Just leave it to me.

...yeah, spells it out pretty clearly, doesn't it?

Is it possible to say that Iris is the strongest female trainer at only 45 eps into her respective series?

At this point in other sagas, May and Dawn were still beginning trainers, and Misty was losing battles right and left and more or less lost to Ash in Cerulean.

Excadrill alone seems much stronger than any pokemon Misty/May/Dawn ever had.

Definitely, but she's also the only female trainer who had notable experience prior to the first episode she appeared in, so that's to be expected.

I thought so, too. Though I'm a bit disappointed that Satoshi lost, at least I was relieved it wasn't a silly defeat, like in the first episode, against Shootie. Doryuzu is indeed Iris's strongest Pokémon. And what's more, with this victory, Iris really stands out against the other female side-kicks, and she's getting some love from the writers, at least!

And besides the unavoidable 3vs3 rematch, I hope we'll get a full 6vs6 match near the end of the series. I'm also curious about the last gym battle... will it be against Iris, or against the other Gym Leader?

So, a geat episode, and it looks like I'm gonna love the next few episodes... I've always enjoyed Nyarth-centered episode quite a lot, but those looks really original and unique. Besides, rarely had Nyarth played such an important role in the series. Looks like the writers are really trying not to forget to give some character development to everyone, which is a really good thing in my opinion. It really makes the overall story much more enjoyable, a bit less predictable, and less a repeat of previous series plots. So, I'm really looking forward to those next few episodes.

I should also add that the series's pace has quite considerable slowed down, as opposed to the beginning of the series, where Satoshi got badges faster than all previous series (except the first one, maybe). It's now been while since they started heading toward that next city... :)

I'm not yet at that point in the games, but isn't Shaga the Gym Leader in White too, he just allows his apprentice Iris to battle you for the badge instead of doing it himself?

If that's the case, I can see that happening in the anime, too.

I played Pokémon White, and as far as I can remember, Iris IS the gym leader, not a mere apprentice (actually, it doesn't change much, since both leaders have the exact same Pokémon). But yeah, I'm pretty sure Iris will become a gym leader by the end of the series, at the conlusion of her training as Dragon Master with Satoshi and Dent.

That sure would make for one epic battle for the last gym, that's for sure.

The English dub was a lot more accurate than the last episode but the added French was extremely annoying especially how poorly it was pronounced. I was pleasantly surprised that they left 'Best Wishes Instrumental' in the English dub. I thought for sure that wouldn't make it through the international licensing agreements for BGM.

I thought it was kind of expected that Pikachu lose since Doryuzu had a type advantage (both resisting Pikachu's Iron Tail and not being affected by his Electric-type attacks). Not to mention Pikachu has a weakness to Ground. However I think it was very realistic how they showed Pikachu could still hang in there for a long time. It was a good battle and I wonder if Iris will ever use the Wings that she won. Her Doryuzu also had a lot of experience before, which just goes to show how strong Pikachu is.
This was a pretty cool battle and a nice end to the Don Battles episodes.
