Summary

English Official Summary

In preparation for his challenge against Nimbasa Gym Leader Elesa, Ash is spending an extraordinary amount of time planning his strategy. The hard work proves valuable right away when their three-on-three battle begins: it’s Ash’s Palpitoad versus Elesa’s Zebstrika, who had defeated all of Bianca’s Pokémon the day before. Palpitoad, who’s immune to Electric-type moves, emerges victorious over the tough Zebstrika, but it’s exhausted. Ash decides to keep battling with Palpitoad anyway, and Elesa brings out her Emolga, an Electric and Flying type. Emolga manages to defeat Palpitoad, and that’s when we learn that Ash’s strategy was to count on Palpitoad’s type advantage to defeat all of Elesa’s Pokémon! After taking a surprise time out, Ash comes back with Snivy…but with its supereffective Flying-type moves, Emolga quickly takes Snivy down. Ash isn’t sure which Pokémon to use next…until Pikachu zaps him back to his senses! He brings his best buddy into the battle, and Pikachu defeats Emolga, forcing Elesa to bring out her secret weapon...the unlikely Tynamo. This tiny Pokémon proves to be powerful indeed, and Pikachu appears to be on the ropes. But Ash and Pikachu prove that their partnership is unmatched, as some quick thinking by both Trainer and Pokémon results in a unique strategy that overwhelms both Elesa and Tynamo! With the help of his trusty companion, Ash wins his fourth Unova Gym Badge!

Sacha va affronter Inezia, la Championne d’Arène de Méanville, et il passe un temps considérable à élaborer sa stratégie. C’est ainsi que le combat à trois contre trois oppose d’abord Sacha et son Batracné à Inezia et son Zéblitz, qui a vaincu la veille tous les Pokémon de Bianca. Batracné en ressort victorieux mais épuisé. Sacha continue cependant avec lui, tandis qu’Inezia appelle son Emolga, qui maîtrise d’autres attaques que celles de type Électrik. Emolga l’emporte sur Batracné, et nous apprenons que la stratégie de Sacha était de vaincre tous les Pokémon d’Inezia avec le seul Batracné ! Sacha réclame un temps mort et revient avec Vipélierre, qui se fait vaincre à son tour par Emolga. Sacha ne sait plus quel Pokémon utiliser, lorsque Pikachu pénètre de force dans l’Arène pour l’aider. Même si les deux adversaires sont de type Électrik, Pikachu l’emporte sur Emolga, et Inezia appelle alors son arme secrète : Anchwatt. Ce tout petit Pokémon est vraiment très puissant et met Pikachu en grande difficulté. Mais Sacha et son ami sont en parfaite harmonie, et élaborent rapidement une stratégie unique, qui a raison d’Inezia et d’Anchwatt, permettant ainsi à Sacha de gagner son quatrième Badge d’Arène.

German Official Summary

Ash bereitet sich auf seinen Arenakampf gegen die Arenaleiterin Kamilla in Rayono City vor. Dieses Mal wendet er außergewöhnlich viel Zeit für das Austüfteln seiner Strategie auf. Das macht sich gerade zu Beginn des Dreierampfes bezahlt. Ashs Mebrana besiegt Zebritz, das alle Pokémon von Bell am Tag zuvor geschlagen hat! Obwohl Mebrana völlig erschöpft ist, kämpft Ash mit ihm weiter. Doch Kamilla setzt Emolga ein, dass auch andere Attacken als die vom Typ Elektro beherrscht. Emolga besiegt Mebrana und wir erfahren, dass Ashs Strategie darauf beruhte, alle Pokémon von Kamilla ausschließlich mit Mebrana zu schlagen! Im Anschluss an den Kampf nimmt sich Ash überraschenderweise eine Auszeit, um dann mit Serpifeu weiterzukämpfen, das aber auch von Emolga besiegt wird. Ash ist daraufhin völlig verwirrt, denn er weiß nicht, welches Pokémon er jetzt einsetzen soll. Wie aufs Stichwort meldet sich Pikachu zu Wort und fleht Ash geradezu um einen Kampfeinsatz an! Es möchte Ash unbedingt helfen und für ihn kämpfen! Ash willigt ein und obwohl jetzt zwei Elekro-Pokémon gegeneinander antreten, gelingt es Pikachu, Emolga zu schlagen. Doch dann bringt Kamilla ihre Geheimwaffe ins Spiel: Zapplardin. Dieses winzig kleine Pokémon ist wirklich unheimlich stark. Es sieht fast schon so aus, als würde Pikachu unterliegen, aber Ash und Pikachu arbeiten Hand in Hand und wenden eine Strategie an, die sowohl Kamilla als auch Zapplardin überwältigt und Ash ruck, zuck zu seinem vierten Einall-Arenaorden verhilft!

Per prepararsi alla lotta contro Camelia, la Capopalestra di Sciroccopoli, Ash trascorre molto tempo a pianificare la propria strategia. Quando la Lotta tre contro tre ha inizio, per primi si scontrano il Palpitoad di Ash e lo Zebstrika di Camelia, che ieri ha sconfitto tutti i Pokémon di Belle. Palpitoad vince, ma è esausto. Ash insiste con lui, mentre Camelia sceglie Emolga, in grado di usare anche mosse non di Tipo Elettro. Emolga sconfigge Palpitoad, e si scopre che la strategia di Ash consisteva nel battere tutti i Pokémon di Camelia solo con questo Pokémon ! Ash chiede una pausa e torna con Snivy, che, però, viene subito sconfitto da Emolga. Ash è indeciso sul terzo Pokémon da usare, Pikachu inizia ad agitarsi perché vuole aiutarlo. In effetti, Pikachu sconfigge Emolga, costringendo Camelia a sfoggiare la sua arma segreta: Tynamo. Questo piccolo Pokémon è potente, e in un primo momento sembra avere la meglio. Ash e Pikachu, però, sono in perfetta sincronia, e riescono a mettere a punto una strategia che spiazza Camelia e Tynamo, garantendo ad Ash la vittoria!

Finnish Official Summary

Valmistautuessaan Nimbasan saliotteluhaasteeseen salijohtaja Elesaa vastaan Ash viettää epätavallisen paljon aikaa strategiansa suunnitteluun. Heidän kolme-kolmea-vastaan ottelunsa aluksi Ash valitsee Palpitoadin Elesan Zebstrikaa vastaan. Zebstrika voitti yksin kaikki Biancan kolme Pokémonia edellisenä päivänä. Palpitoad on voitokas, mutta uupunut. Ash jatkaa Palpitoadilla siitä huolimatta ja Elesa kutsuu esiin Emolgansa, joka osaa muitakin kuin sähkötyypin liikkeitä. Emolga kukistaa Palpitoadin ja selviää, että Ashin strategia oli voittaa KAIKKi Elesan Pokémonit pelkällä Palpitoadilla! Otettuaan yllättävän aikalisän Ash palaa Snivy mukanaan, mutta sekin saa pian köniinsä Emolgalta. Ashin pähkäillessä, mitä Pokémonia käyttäisi, Pikachu tuskastuu ja vaatii päästä auttamaan. Vaikka molemmat Pokémonit ovat sähkötyyppiä, Pikachu voittaa Emolgan, jolloin Elesa tuo esiin salaisen aseensa... Tynamon. Pikkuinen Pokémon on todellakin supervahva ja näyttää pahasti siltä, että Pikachu häviäisi. Ash ja Pikachu toimivat kuitenkin hyvin yhteen ja molempien nopean ajattelun tuloksena he punovat strategian, joka yllättää sekä Elesan että Tynamon, ja Ash voittaa neljännen Unovan salimerkkinsä!

Dutch Official Summary

Terwijl Ash zich voorbereidt op het gevecht tegen Gym Leader Elesa in de Nimbasa Gym, spendeert Ash ongewoon veel tijd aan zijn strategieplannen. Hun drie-tegen-drie gevecht begint en Ash’s Palpitoad vecht tegen Elesa’s Zebstrika, die alle Pokémon van Bianca de vorige dag heeft verslagen. Palpitoad wint maar is uitgeput. Toch besluit Ash Palpitoad weer in te zetten en  Elesa brengt haar Emolga tevoorschijn, die ook andere zetten kan dan Elektrische soorten. Emolga verslaat Palpitoad, en we komen er achter dat Ash van plan was alle Pokémon van Elesa te verslaan met alleen Palpitoad! Na een korte pauze, komt Ash met Snivy terug, maar die wordt ook door Emolga verslagen. Terwijl hij weet niet meer welke Pokémon hij moet gebruiken, schreeuwt en smeekt Pikachu hem om hem te gebruiken en te helpen. Hoewel beiden zijden Elektrische soorten zijn, verslaat Pikachu Emolga en daarna brengt Elesa haar geheime wapen tevoorschijn… Tynamo. Deze kleine Pokémon is inderdaad supersterk, en het lijkt erop dat Pikachu gaat verliezen, maar Ash en Pikachu zijn goed op elkaar ingespeeld. Door een snelle actie van zowel Trainer en Pokémon worden Elesa en Tynamo verslagen en wint Ash zijn vierde Unova Gym Badge!

Script Error

Dent's line in the Japanese original uses a lot the English words including: "taste" (テイスト) which was replaced with "recipe" in the English dub, "marriages" (マリアージュ) which was replaced with "well-thought" and "battle" (バトル) which was actually removed completely. It seems very odd to completely alter a line for the English when its mostly in English to start with in the Japanese original.

Cilan: It's not Ash's normal pre-battle recipe, but still, a well-thought out strategy can help!
Dent: It's an unusual taste for Satoshi, but thinking of marriages for the battle is a good thing.
(デント): サトシにしては珍しいテイストだけどバトルのマリアージュを考えるのはいいことだよ。

00:28

Culture Edit

Iris's pun in the Japanese original is based off of 'chienetsu' (知恵熱), a 'teething fever' which consists of the Japanese words for wisdom and fever.

Iris English: Long as he doesn't get a headache...
Iris Japanese: I just hope he doesn't develop wisdom teeth from this.
(アイリス): 知恵熱 出さなきゃいいけど…。
02:46

Script Error

Kamitsure in the Japanese original was very consistent in her usage of dizzy (クラクラ). The English dub broke that consistency yet again for Elesa and in this instance she says she is going to "glow".

Elesa: Now prepare to watch me glow!
Kamitsure: Be sure to watch my battle and become dizzy today!
(カミツレ): 私のバトルを見て今日も クラクラしていってね。

03:01

Script Error

Elesa in the English dub uses the same bright as the sun simile that was used in the previous episode but Kamitsure's statement is more direct in the Japanese original as she tells Satoshi that she will out shine him in the battle. Kamitsure in the Japanese original yet again does not compare her 'brightness' to that of the sun.

Elesa: I'll be shining as bright as the sun! I plan on dazzling you as well, Ash!
Kamitsure: I'll make sure to shine even more than you and make your radiance vanish!
(カミツレ): 私も あなた以上に輝いてあなたの輝きを消してみせるわ!

03:29

Script Error

The way the Japanese original uses the word 'taste' can often make it sound a bit awkward when translating the rest of the sentence into English. This specific line makes Dent's 'tasting' (テイスティング), his evaluating of a persons nature, seem very strange when taken literally but when taken in context though, it makes sense.

Cilan: An evaluating time to remember!
Dent: Yeah. I'll make sure to taste him.
(デント): うん。 しっかりテイスティングさせてもらおう。

03:38

Script Error

The English dub yet again breaks with the dizzy (クラクラ) consistency that Kamitsure has and in this case uses "tingle" but Kamitsure says she was going to make everyone in the gym dizzy from the shining lights whereas Elesa is more concerned about rhyming the word "tingle".

Elesa: Feel the spark! And feel the tingle! Watch me mix and mingle!
Kamitsure: All right, today we'll make everyone dizzy with our shining lightning flashes!
(カミツレ): さぁ 今日も キラキラビリビリでみんなを クラクラさせちゃうわ!

07:18

Script Error

The English dub yet again breaks with the dizzy (クラクラ) consistency that Kamitsure has and in this case uses "spinning".

Elesa: But he'll soon be spinning instead of sparkling.
Kamitsure: But you're the one who'll be dizzy next.
(カミツレ): でも次はクラクラしてもらう番よ。

08:05

Script Error

The English dub is anything but consistent. This time it replaces dizzy (クラクラ) with "dazzle".

Elesa: I told you I'd dazzle you two, didn't I?
Kamitsure: I told you I'd make you dizzy.
(カミツレ): クラクラしてもらうって言ったでしょう。

12:12

Script Error

In keeping with her earlier statement, Kamitsure asks the crowd if they'd become dizzy (クラクラ) yet and if they saw her Emonga shile. Elesa in the English dub doesn't ask the spectators any questions.

Elesa: My Emolga positively glows! I'm glad you feel the same way!
Kamitsure: Everyone, didn't my Emonga shine? Have you become dizzy?
(カミツレ): みんな 私のエモンガ輝いていたでしょ!クラクラしてくれたかな?

14:34

Script Error

Yet another change of dizzy (クラクラ).

Elesa: Like a million shooting stars!
Kamitsure: It's making me dizzy.
(カミツレ): クラクラしちゃうくらい。

15:34

Script Error

The consistency didn't last long as Iris (Japanese), who was referring to Kamitsure constant and consistent use of dizzy (クラクラ), says she got dizzy.

Iris English: At one point, you had me so worried that my head was spinning and my heart racing.
Iris Japanese: For a moment, even I was dizzy and nervous, wondering what would happen!
(アイリス): 一時は どうなるかと思って私まで クラクラドキドキしちゃった。

21:18

Script Error

After all the countless changes of dizzy (クラクラ) in the last two episodes, the English dub finally stays consistent with the Japanese original for this one line.

Elesa: I got dizzy watching your blinding pace.
Kamitsure: My heart was moved so much it made me dizzy.
(カミツレ): 私の心も クラクラと動かされたわ。

21:24

Script Error

Bizarrely, Kamitsure actually says "The Drawbridge to Hodomo" near the end of the episode when she remembers that its being repaired. It's official name is the 'Hodomoe Drawbridge' (ホドモエの跳ね橋). It's unclear why she says it that way, but presumably this was caused by a typo in the original script, as the error is also reflected in the closed captions.

Elesa: The Driftveil Drawbridge is closed for repairs, so you can't cross!
Kamitsure: You can't cross the Hodomoe Drawbridge because it's being repaired.
(カミツレ): ホドモの跳ね橋は今 修理中で渡れないんだった。

Finally Pikachu shows its a strong Pokemon, 2 KO's in one match, now that's what I'm talking about. It's already a super high level and whenever its used in battles like that it should be kicking some ass. At this point I can see why Pikachu should only be used in the leagues allowing Satoshi's other Pokemon to get strong by battling the trainers and gym leaders.

Pikachu is still the mascot of the franchise, which is why it still has to be used in most battles even though it constantly loses to pokemon it shouldn't. Its been like this for the last few generations.

Even in the AG and DP episodes, Pikachu would lose to a random wild pokemon or some "weaker" trainer. It isn't just Best Wishes that has done this with Pikachu.

Pikachu's behaviour in this episode was quite interesting... to see him disappointed and rather disheartened by the fact Satoshi didn't chose him at first for this gym battle.
This battle was quite nice, except for the 'middle' part, where Satoshi battled like a complete "n00b"... I've never been disappointed by Tsutarja's appearances so far, but you really have to wonder why Satoshi even chose it for this battle. I know it was for the whole attraction thing, but that felt kinda silly in my opinion.

Anyway, that episode was still great, despite some rather awkward parts (hopefully, Pikachu's battle really made up for Satoshi poor performance with Tsutarja). And the next episode looks as great... I absolutely love episode where Dent plays a prominent role. He's such a great character, and while I do miss Takeshi (and the good ol' paralysis gag from DP), I really got to give the writers credits for coming up with such an original 'side-kick' character, and not just a pale copy of Takeshi (a bit like that guy from the Orange Isles story-arc).

I really love the series so far. And it looks like it's not going to change any time soon.

Edit: is it me, or have they started using music from the previous generation in the past two episodes? Not already existing tracks, but rather some new version of previous series/games tracks...

Yeah, this battle was pretty interesting. I wonder why Satoshi put so much thought into types, though, especially when he usually just goes with a random Pokémon. I guess that's why he was losing at first. Also I can't believe he expected to defeat the whole gym with Gamagaru. That was pretty arrogant of him. It must have been pretty embarrassing for him when he had to get more Pokémon. I didn't think he would ever make that mistake....
I felt that Pikachu was really the one who led to Satoshi's victory. Not only in making Satoshi choose him for the last battle, but also in that Pikachu was the one who came up with the strategy to defeat the Shibishirasu. I felt the nod Pikachu gave Satoshi at the end was really a testament to the strength of their bond, and that was what let them win in the end. I liked it earlier when Pikachu was so excited he shocked everybody else.

The English dub once again was very inconsistent with its usage of 'dizzy' (クラクラ). Most of the dub edits in the episode were all the difference usages of it.
