Après son combat d’Arène contre la Championne d'Arène Carolina, Sacha a repris sa route et nos héros rencontrent leur vieil ami Jules, qui leur parle du festival de la Cloche des Souhaits. C'est un concours durant lequel des équipes formées d'un Dresseur et d'un Pokémon tentent d’obtenir l'honneur de faire sonner la célèbre Cloche des Souhaits au sommet de la Tour de Parsemille. On prétend en effet que quiconque fait sonner cette cloche verra ses souhaits devenir réalité. Nos héros découvrent à leur grande joie que le grand-père de Carolina, leur ami Victor, est l’organisateur du festival. Le concours commence. De nombreux Dresseurs y participent avec leur Pokémon. Mais seules deux équipes, celle de Sacha et Pikachu ainsi que celle de Jules et Karaclée, se qualifient pour l'épreuve finale. Au terme d'un dernier effort héroïque, Jules et Karaclée remportent la victoire ! Jules fait sonner la cloche et fait un vœu, puis Iris lui demande ce qu'il a souhaité. Il répond : « Je voudrais que tout le monde prononce mon nom correctement ! » Mais il a également souhaité gagner le Tournoi de Combats Donamite sponsorisé par le Club de Combat Pokémon de Don George, qui doit bientôt avoir lieu.

I thoroughly enjoyed this episode. It was funny seeing all the challenges that the contestants had to go through, but I had hoped there were more people left to compete after the boat race. I don't understand why Dent's cosplay was not acceptable, although the idea of cosplaying as Pokémon was really cool. Kenyan and Dageki's cosplay was very amusing, and even Mile said so. I liked how Iris used her hair to make herself look like Professor Araragi and just kept repeating her name the whole time.
The whole idea of the festival in the city was really interesting and the tower was really cool was well. I wonder why Reiji didn't just use his Ligray's Psychic to get directly to the top of the tower, though.
I found the forest with Ghost Pokémon really cool, since Ghost Pokémon are my favorite type. It was funny how Iris was tricked by the Confuse Ray of the Chandelure, and how the other Pokémon in the forest were applauding for her. i wonder if they were confused by Chandelure as well.
I liked how Reiji didn't win at the end. His tactics were pretty cheap, and it would have been disappointing to see him win just because he had a Psychic type Pokémon.

I can't say I enjoyed this episode a lot... everything about it felt really forced, so they could introduce the Donamites.
One good example of that is Dent's cosplay. Not only his Kamitsure cosplay was the best one (along with Satoshi's), but it was waaaaay better than Kenyan's (even though I did giggle at how goofy he looked as Joy-san :p).

In other words, this whole episode felt like: 'Sorry, we're making Kenyan win the Donamites at all costs, so we need to make him win this contest which makes absolutely no-sense at all because our writers were totally uninspired and needed a filler before the Donamites'.

I'm calling it: Kenyan will win the Donamites this time around.


@ michan: what, you mean the stone from the very first season? I doubt he got it anymore, since he mihgt not want to risk making Pikachu evolve accidently. That, or the stone mysteriously disappeared because of the space-time paradox which made him stop ageing since he turned 10.

He took it out from his bag once, in this episode.

How come Satoshi forgot that he already has a thunder stone, which he received from Joy-san?


How come michan forgot that Satoshi doesn't have a Thunderstone, since the Rocket Gang stole it from him in that very episode he's trying to use as evidence of the opposite? :P

He/She probably didn't realize that they stole it from him in the first place :D
