English Official Summary

After fulfilling Clay’s request for the rare Revival Herbs, Ash is more than ready for his Gym Battle...and finally, so is Clay! They proceed to the battlefield in the Driftveil Gym, located deep underground in one of Clay’s mines. The battle will use three Pokémon per side. Clay starts by bringing out his powerful Krokorok, and Ash realizes that he can’t use Pikachu, who’s been eager to battle, because its Electric-type moves won’t work at all against Clay’s team of Ground types. He picks Oshawott instead, and the battle begins! Krokorok is powerful indeed, but Ash executes a brilliant strategy to knock it out and give him the lead. Then Clay brings out his Palpitoad, which appears to be much stronger than Ash’s own Palpitoad. Oshawott is defeated with a crushing Rock Smash, and Snivy is up next. Another unusual strategy and an excellent type advantage lead to Palpitoad’s defeat, and Clay is not pleased. Finally, the Gym Leader turns to his secret weapon—a super-strong Excadrill, whose Rapid Spin keeps deflecting Snivy’s attacks until it’s able to knock Snivy out. Both sides are down to just one Pokémon left, and Ash calls on Roggenrola, hoping its toughness will keep it standing against repeated powerful attacks from Excadrill. Excadrill’s attacks are unyielding, but sure enough, Roggenrola endures—and then evolves into a powerful Boldore, which turns the tide of the battle considerably! Both Boldore and Excadrill are extremely tough, and the attacks continue to fly—but in the end, Boldore emerges victorious, and Ash wins the Quake Badge! Then, upon Nurse Joy’s recommendation, our heroes set their sights on the Mistralton City Gym, where Ash will vie for his sixth Unova Gym badge!

French Official Summary

Sacha a réussi à ramener un plein sac d'Herbe Rappel à l'Arène de Port Yoneuve et son Champion, Bardane, accepte enfin de le rencontrer p¬our un combat d'Arène. Chaque adversaire a droit à trois Pokémon. Bardane commence par choisir son puissant Escroco. Sacha, de son côté, appelle Moustillon, et le combat commence. Escroco est vraiment très fort, mais la stratégie de Sacha permet à notre héros de remporter une première victoire. Bardane appelle alors son Batracné, qui semble bien plus puissant que le Pokémon de Sacha. Il finit par avoir raison de Moustillon grâce à Éclate-Roc, et Sacha choisit alors sa Vipélierre. Celle-ci remporte la victoire sur Batracné grâce à la stratégie préférée de Sacha. Bardane fait alors appel à son « arme secrète », un Minotaupe extrêmement puissant. Incapable d'encaisser ses attaques, Vipélierre est vaincue et Sacha choisit son Nodulithe, sachant qu'il sera capable de résister aux attaques puissantes de Minotaupe, puis de riposter en force. Les attaques de Minotaupe sont effrayantes mais Nodulithe arrive à les encaisser. Il finit même par évoluer pour devenir un puissant Géolithe, ce qui change la nature même du combat ! Les deux adversaires sont d'une très grande puissance et les attaques se succèdent, mais Géolithe en sort victorieux, ce qui permet à Sacha de gagner son cinquième Badge d’Arène de la Région d'Unys, le Badge Sismique ! Ensuite, sur les recommandations de l'Infirmière Joëlle, nos héros décident de se diriger vers l'Arène de Parsemille, où Sacha espère remporter son sixième Badge d’Arène.

German Official Summary

Nachdem unsere Helden dem Arenaleiter von Marea City, Turner, wie von ihm gewünscht einen großen Sack Vitalkraut gebracht haben, kann endlich der Arenakampf zwischen Turner und Ash losgehen. Jeder darf drei Pokémon einsetzen. Turner beginnt mit seinem starken Rokkaiman, Ash entscheidet sich für Ottaro und schon geht es los! Rokkaiman ist in der Tat sehr stark, aber Ashs einzigartige Strategie bringt unserem Helden den ersten Sieg ein. Doch dann setzt Turner sein Mebrana ein, das sehr viel stärker als Ashs Ottaro zu sein scheint. Schließlich besiegt Mebrana Ottaro mit Zertrümmerer und Ash kämpft mit Serpifeu weiter. Da Ash sich nicht beirren lässt und  konsequent seiner außergewöhnlichen Strategie folgt, kann Serpifeu schließlich Mebrana besiegen. Doch nun ruft Turner sein Stalobor, das er selbst für „super stark“ hält. Wie zu erwarten kann Serpifeu seinen heftigen Attacken nicht standhalten und verliert. Daraufhin entscheidet sich Ash, mit Kiesling weiterzukämpfen, da er weiß, dass es die ständigen Attacken von Stalobor überstehen und trotzdem selbst noch angreifen kann. Wie erwartet, sind Stalobors Attacken unerbittlich, doch Kiesling lässt sie über sich ergehen. Daraufhin entwickelt sich Kiesling plötzlich zu einem starken Sedimantur weiter, was den Kampf auf einen Schlag völlig verändert! Beide Pokémon setzen ihre gewaltigen Kräfte ein! Die Attacken fliegen nur so hin und her! Doch schließlich geht Sedimantur als Sieger aus dem Kampf hervor und Ash erhält seinen fünften Einall-Orden, den Seismo-Orden! Als unsere Helden von Schwester Joy erfahren, dass die nächstgelegene Arena die von Panaero City ist, machen sie sich sofort auf den Weg, denn Ash kann jetzt an nichts anderes mehr denken, als seinen sechsten Einall-Orden zu gewinnen!

Italian Official Summary

Avendo soddisfatto la richiesta di Rafan di ritornare con un sacco pieno di Vitalerba, finalmente la lotta in Palestra tra Ash e il Capopalestra può avere luogo. Entrambi hanno a disposizione tre Pokémon: Rafan inizia con il suo potente Krokorok, mentre Ash sceglie Oshawott e... la lotta ha inizio! Krokorok è davvero molto forte, ma Ash gioca d’astuzia e riesce ad aggiudicarsi il primo incontro. Rafan chiama quindi il suo Palpitoad, che sembra essere molto più forte del Pokémon di Ash e che, in effetti, sconfigge Oshawott con una mossa Spaccaroccia potentissima. Ash, allora, chiama Svivy e insieme riescono a battere Palpitoad. Rafan, per tutta risposta, scopre la sua “arma segreta”: un fortissimo Excadrill sotto i cui colpi Snivy soccombe. Ash, perciò, sceglie Roggenrola, capace di resistere ai ripetuti attacchi dell’avversario e di rispondergli efficacemente. Roggenrola resiste strenuamente a ogni colpo, finché, all’improvviso, non si evolve in Boldore, cambiando tutte le carte in tavola! Ora è uno scontro di pura forza, da cui Boldore emerge vittorioso, permettendo ad Ash di guadagnarsi la sua quinta medaglia di Unima, la Medaglia Sisma! Infine, l’Infermiera Joy suggerisce ai nostri eroi di dirigersi a Ponentopoli, dove Ash potrà tentare di conquistare la sua sesta medaglia.

Finnish Official Summary

Ashin tuotua Driftveil Cityn salijohtajan Clayn pyynnöstä tälle ison säkillisen elvytysyrttejä hän ja Clay alkavat puuhaamaan saliottelua. Ottelussa molemmilla puolilla on kolme Pokémonia ja Clay aloittaa voimakkaalla Krokorokillaan. Ash valitsee Oshawottin ja ottelu alkaa! Krokorok on todella voimakas, mutta Ashin ainutlaatuinen ottelustrategia tuo sankarillemme ensimmäisen voiton. Sitten Clay kutsuu esiin Palpitoadinsa, joka vaikuttaa paljon vahvemmalta kuin Ashin Palpitoad. Clayn Palpitoad kukistaa Oshawottin hurjalla Rock Smashilla, jonka jälkeen Ash ottaa Snivynsa käyttöön. Ashin epätavallisen strategian avulla Snivy voittaa Palpitoadin, jonka jälkeen Clay esittelee supervahvan Excadrillinsä. Snivy ei kestä Excadrillin väkivahvoja hyökkäyksiä, vaan nujertuu. Silloin Ash päättää tuoda kentälle Roggenrolansa, sillä hän tietää sen voivan kestää Excadrillin hurjat hyökkäykset ja vastata samalla mitalla. Excadrill hyökkää säälimättä, mutta Roggenrola kestää iskut. Yllättäen Roggenrolasta kehittyy voimakas Boldore, mikä muuttaa ottelun luonnetta huomattavasti! Ottelun molemmat osapuolet ovat valtavan vahvoja ja iskuja vaihdetaan, mutta lopulta Boldore on voitokas ja tuo Ashille tämän viidennen Unovan salimerkin, Järistysmerkin! Ottelun jälkeen sankarimme suuntaavat katseensa hoitaja Joyn suosituksesta Mistralton Cityyn ja etenkin Mistralton Cityn salille, missä Ash aikoo yrittää voittaa kuudennen Unovan salimerkkinsä.

Dutch Official Summary

Nadat onze helden een grote zak Opwekkingskruid hebben gegeven aan  de Driftveil City Gym Leader Clay (zoals Clay had gevraagd), zullen Ash en Clay eindelijk hun Gym Gevecht gaan houden. Tijdens het gevecht mag ieder drie Pokémon gebruiken en zet Clay zijn sterke Krokorok in. Ash kiest Oshawott en het gevecht is in volle gang! Krokorok blijkt inderdaad erg sterk te zijn, maar dankzij de unieke strategie van Ash, wint onze held de eerste ronde. Daarna haalt Clay zijn Palpitoad tevoorschijn en die blijkt veel sterker te zijn dan de Palpitoad van Ash. Clay’s Palpitoad verslaat Oshawott met een laatste Steenknal en dus haalt Ash zijn Snivy tevoorschijn. Snivy verslaat Palpitoad en Clay haalt zijn supersterke Excadrill tevoorschijn. Snivy kan niet tegen Excadrill’s krachtige aanvallen op en wordt verslagen en dus haalt Ash zijn Roggenrola tevoorschijn, in de wetenschap dat hij de krachtige aanvallen van Excadrill aankan en tegelijkertijd kan aanvallen. Excadrill’s aanvallen zijn krachtig maar Roggenrola ondergaat ze. Plotseling evolueert Roggenrola in Boldore en dat verandert het gevecht aanzienlijk! Beiden zijn ontzettend sterk en de aanvallen vliegen over het veld, maar uiteindelijk wint Boldore en verdient Ash zijn vijfde Unova Gym Badge, de Quake Badge! Daarna raadt Zuster Joy onze helden aan om hun reis te vervolgen naar Mistralton City en de Mistralton City Gym, waar Ash om zijn zesde Unova Gym Badge kan gaan strijden.

Norwegian Official Summary

Etter å ha tatt med seg tilbake en sekk med oppvåkningsurter til Driftveil City Gym-lederen Clay (etter anmodning fra Clay), kommer Ash og Clay endelig i gang med deres Gym-kamp. Det blir en kamp med tre Pokémon på hvert lag, og Clay begynner ved å bruke sin kraftfulle Krokorok. Ash velger Oshawott, og kampen er i gang! Krokorok er virkelig sterk, men Ash sin unike strategi gir helten vår det første stikket. Så bringer Clay ut sin Palpitoad, wsom viser seg å være mye sterkere enn Ash sin Palpitoad. Clays Palpitoad beseirer Oshawott med en beseglende Rock Smash, og da bringer Ash frem sin Snivy. Ved å bruke Ash sin uvanlige strategi, beseirer Snivys Palpitoad, og det er da Clay bringer ut det han kaller ”den”—hans supersterke Excadrill. Snivy er ute av stand til å stå imot Excadrills kraftfulle angrep, og Snivy blir beseiret, så Ash bringer ut sin Roggenrola, for han vet at den vil være i stand til å stå imot Excadrills gjentatte kraftfulle angrep, og fremdeles være i stand til å angripe med samme mynt. Excadrills angrep er urokkelige, men Roggenrola klarer å stå imot. Plutselig utvikler Roggenrola seg til en kraftfull Boldore, som endrer kampbildet fullstendig! Med voldsomme krefter på begge lag, angripes det ustoppelig, men Boldore går seirende ut, som gjør at Ash klarer å skaffe seg sin femte Unova Gym Badge, en Quake Badge! Så, etter Nurse Joys anbefaling, setter heltene våre kursen for Mistralton City og Mistralton City Gym, hvor Ash skal konkurrere om sin sjette Unova Gym Badge.

Efter att ha tagit med en stor säck Återupplivningsört till Driftveil City-gym-ledaren Clay (på Clays begäran), påbörjar Ash och Clay sin Gym-strid. Stridens regler medger tre Pokémon per sida, och Clay börjar med att välja sin kraftfulla Pokémon, Krokorok. Ash väljer Oshawott och striden är igång! Krokorok är verkligen kraftfull, men Ashs unika strategi ger vår hjälte hans första vinst. Sen väljer Clay sin Palpitoad, som verkar vara mycket starkare än Ashs Pokémon. Clays Palpitoad besegrar Oshawott med en slutlig Rock Smash, och då släpper Ash fram sin Snivy. Genom Ashs ovanliga strategi besegrar Snivy Palpitoad, och då väljer Clay att ta fram den han kallar ”det”, sin superstarka Excadrill. Oförmögen att stå emot Excadrills kraftfulla attacker, blir Snivy utslagen, varpå Ash väljer Roggenrola ,eftersom han vet att den kan uthärda upprepade, hårda attacker från Excadrill och ändå gå till motattack. Excadrills attacker är obevekliga, men Roggenrola uthärdar dem. Plötsligt utvecklas Roggenrola till en kraftfull Boldore, vilket avsevärt ändrar stridens karaktär! Med sanslös kraft från båda hållen, avfyras attackerna, men Boldore avgår med segern, vilket ger Ash hans femte Unova-gym Badge, Quake Badge! Sen, på Syster Joys rekommendation, ställer våra hjältar in siktet på Mistralton City och Mistralton City-gymmet, där Ash ska kämpa för sin sjätte Unova-gym Badge-vinst!

Special First-Airing Segment Data Broadcast

The Pocket Monsters Best Wishes data broadcast was an additional segment that allowed people with compatible settop to play a game to capture a Pokémon. During the original TV Tokyo airing, the featured Pokémon could be registered in the data broadcast zukan by correctly answering a question about its weaknesses as the ending theme played.

Viewers could push the d-button on their remote control and participate in the data broadcast. They would choose one of the three gen 5 starters as their first Pokémon (in later 3-months periods, Pikachu could also be chosen), then fill up a "battle gauge" by watching the program. If the gauge was full by the time the episode ended, they could have a "Pokémon battle", where they would select one of three elemental types to attack that episode's Pokémon with. If they choose a super effective move, they could get Pokémon and register them in their personal Zukan.

Every 3 months, participants would be given a personal password which could be used on the official anime website to download a customized calendar wallpaper for the next three months of the year, featuring the starter Pokémon they had chosen and the exact Pokémon they had managed to catch through the data broadcast during that most recent 3-month period.

Loved this episode. The battle was great and it was a whole episode, no Rocket Gang plot taking up time or any other needless subplots, just a 3-on-3 battle for the entire episode. I thought the battle animation was great as was the evolution effects. The music was also good too.

Finally, the Can You Say the Pokemon BW is over. Hell yes! It's about time! I like the new ending theme and I thought the harmony worked well. Looking forward to hearing a full version of that song.

Dare da is back too! How epic is that! Been quite a long time since they've had that as well.

I liked this episode as well. It really showed how strong Mijumaru has become with Satoshi, surviving multiple hits from Warubiru and proving strong enough to defeat it in the end, even with the sandstorm raging for most of the battle.
I was struck by how different the three battles were. The first was really realistic and the way Satoshi managed to pull off a win at the end was what I expected to happen. The second was rather funny, with Tsutarja not even taking a hit from Gamagaru. I was surprised that Yacon didn't see what was coming until it was too late, although honestly I don't think Mero Mero has appeared much in the anime until this season. His reaction to it was pretty funny as well.
I found the last part very hard to believe. I mean, how many (super-effective)hits did Dangoro take from Doryuzu before evolving? And even after that Gantoru took a few more hits before defeating Excadrill with two attacks, one of which should have been doubly-resisted. Not to mention that this was its first battle! Even if Doryuzu was unable to get its last attack in, Gantoru should have fainted long before that. And I can't understand Satoshi's reasoning behind using a never-before-used Pokémon as his last Pokémon in a gym battle against a Pokémon that doubly resists it. Even Kurimiru's evolution during his first gym battle pales in comparison to this. I guess the only explanation is that his Dangoro was at an incredibly high level when he captured it.
On a different note, Mijumaru's and Doryuzu's spinning attacks (Rapid Spin?) looked really similar. I wondered if they were the same attack.
Well, anyways I'm looking forward to the next episode. Pikachu and the other Pokémon looked pretty funny without electricity.

They brought back Dare da? Judging by the images it had different graphics, but did they use the same old music, or a different one?
Still, it's weird that they'd bring that back after almost 10 years of regular character eyecatches.

From what I read here and elsewhere, this is the best BW gym battle so far and that Satoshi seemed to sorta regain his DP battle experience, if only for this episode.

This episode blew my mind. I can only hope that all future Gym battle episodes will have this sort of intensity. They better do all the other evolutions like this too.
Also it seems like Oshawott's cowardly lion nature is all but gone now.

The "dare da" segment is a tie-in with the data broadcast system, where you fill a "battle gauge" by watching the episode. If you filled the gauge by the time the credits start rolling, you can battle the Pokemon of the episode by choosing its weakness from a list of three. If you choose the correct option, you get the Pokemon, which is then registered in your zukan. Because of this, the "dare da" segment lists the Pokemon, its type, and all its weaknesses, so the less game-savvy viewers will learn what to pick.

And yeah, fantastic battle. Don't know if it was as good as the very first gym (which was very good despite all the idiotic fandumb hate it gets for "waah, Pikachu lost against the first gym, this show is terribly written"), but its definitely better than the second, third and fourth.
