Summary
Ash and co. have already arrived on Dewford Island. Ash and Pikachu walk out of the islan'd Pokémon Center. They are ready for their gym battle at the Dewford Gym. Brock and Max also walk out. They already know Ash is ready for his gym battle. May then comes out with her pillow. Max points the pillow out to May. She almost left the Pokémon Center with it. Ash and Pikachu run up the path that leads to the gym.

Brock, May, and Max have caught up with Ash. A big sign says, "Fight the big wave." Brock wonders if the gym leader is one of those big guys like Chuck from the Cianwood Gym. Ash knocks on the door. The door quickly opens and group of girls run out with surfboards. Ash falls to the ground. A young man then walks out and asks Ash if he is alright. He is the gym leader of the Dewford Gym, and his name is Brawly. When Ash asks him for a battle, Brawly tells Ash that he has to do some surfing first and that they can battle the next day. Then he runs off. Ash gets angry at Brawly because he can't have his gym battle today. May and Brock think that enjoying the beach would be great. Max tells Ash that he can't have a battle without a gym leader. Since Ash doesn't have a choice, they decide to have some fun.

Many people are surfing in the water. Others are laying out on the beach. Two people walk in the cafe. The cafe is empty when Team Rocket comes out from behind the counter. They say their motto. The two people run out of the cafe. Meowth sees Ash and co. walking by. They think of a plan to catch Pikachu. May wants to go swimminig already. Max tells her that she can't change out of her clothes on the beach. May tells Max not to worry and she takes off her clothes. Underneath them is her swimsuit. Brock is admiring all the girls riding the waves. Then they see Brawly. He sends out Makuhita. Brawly and Makuhita begin to surf the waves. Ash looks up Makuhita in his Pokédex.

Ash gets angry that Brawly turned down his gym battle only so that he could surf the waves. Ash begs Brawly to battle him. Brawly tells him that he isn't battling today. Makuhita begins to lose its balance because it's distracted, but Brawly tells Makuhita to concentrate. They are surfing on a big wave. Ash dives down into the water to get Brawly. The wave crashes wiping them all out. Brock, May, and Max make sure to see that Ash and Brawly are okay.

Team Rocket is on a boat. They fire a net which captures Pikachu. Pikachu uses Thunderbolt, but the attack doesn't work. Brawly wonders who they are. Team Rocket introduces themselves with their motto. Meowth cuts the motto short, and they begin to escape. Makuhita jumps on its surfboard and chases after Team Rocket. It hits Team Rocket's boat with Tackle. Pikachu falls out of Meowth's hands. Ash gets Pikachu and frees it from the net. Then Pikachu uses Thunderbolt and blasts Team Rocket off again.

Brawly is impressed with Ash's battle skills. He accepts Ash's battle. Ash is stretching out for the battle. May wonders what strategy Ash will use. Brock thinks that Ash doesn't have a strategy and Max agrees. Brock tells Ash that he should use a Flying type. Ash thinks he will win his gym badge easily by using Taillow. The judge explains the rules of the battle, and then the battle begins.

Ash sends out Taillow and Brawly sends out Machop. May looks up Machop in her Pokédex. Taillow starts off with Wing Attack. Machop stares at Taillow and takes the hit. Taillow hits Machop again with Wing Attack. Machop gets back up on its feet. A third time Taillow hits Machop with Wing Attack. Since Machop still isn't attacking Taillow, Taillow uses a string of Wing Attacks. Each attack hits Machop, however Machop is still able to get back up. Brock explains that Machop has been absorbing the attack each time, so there hasn't been any damage at all. Taillow then uses Quick Attack. Machop counters with Cross Chop. The attack hits Taillow and it faints.

Everyone is surprised by this because a flying Pokémon would usually do better against a fighting Pokémon. Brock thinks that Machop's victory was because of its surfing skills. Machop was able to move like it does on a surfboard. Brock tells Ash that he needs to change his strategy because the power attacks won't do anything. Ash refuses to change his strategy. He sends out Treecko. Treekco uses a series of Pound attacks. Eventually, Machop grows tired. Then Treecko uses Quick Attack. Machop barely dodges the attack. Treecko finally uses Pound. The attack hits Machop, and Machop faints.

Brawly then sends out Makuhita. Treecko starts off with Pound, but Makuhita dodges all of Treecko's attacks. Treecko is weakening. Ash orders Treecko to use Quick Attack. Makuhita counters the attack with Vital Throw followed by an Arm Thrust. Even though Treecko is crippled, it still is able to get back up. Treecko charges towards Makuhita. Makuhita easily picks up Treecko and attacks with Seismic Toss. Treecko falls to the ground again, however it is still able to get back up. Suddenly, Makuhita begins to glow. It evolves into Hariyama! May looks up Hariyama in her Pokédex. Ash still wants to battle even though Hariyama can easily beat Treecko. Treecko uses Pound. The attack doesn't do a thing to Hariyama. Hariyama strikes Treecko with a Knock Off attack. Finally, Treecko faints and Brawly is declared the winner.

Ash and co. bring Treecko to a Pokémon Center. Nurse Joy tells Ash that he shouldn't force Treecko to battle in a weakened condition. Max tells Ash that Nurse Joy is right. Ash is still upset that he lost against Brawly. He gets so angry that he runs out of the room. Ash and Pikachu walk on the beach. Ash sees Brawly training his Hariyama. They are surfing in the water. When they take a break, Ash runs up to Brawly. He apologizes to Brawly. Ash thought that surfing was only fun and games, but it is really hard work. Brawly accepts Ash's apology. Then Brawly and Hariyama run back into the water. Brock, May, and Max meet up with May. Ash apologizes to his friends. He asks them if he can stay on the island some more and train. His friends think it's a great idea. Now Ash will train even harder to prepare for a rematch against Brawly.

English Official Summary

Ash charges out in the early morning, ready to challenge the Dewford Gym. He's followed by Max, May, and Brock who are all still wiping the sleep out of their eyes. Upon arriving at the door to the Gym, Ash is bowled over by a group of energetic surfers charging out of the door. The surfers are followed by a man who apologizes for the commotion and turns out to be none other than Brawly, the Dewford Gym Leader. Ash instantly asks for a match, but Brawly has plans to go surfing. Ash is irritated that Brawly won't accept the challenge, but he, May, Max, and Brock end up following Brawly and his surfer friends to the beach—much to his dismay. At the beach, Team Rocket is happily running a snack stand and they modify their motto to suit the service industry atmosphere. Of course, they see Ash and his friends arriving at the beach and begin devising a plot to steal Pikachu; although James is content to continue selling their frosty beverages. Brawly and his Makuhita begin surfing the waves. On shore, Pikachu is caught by Team Rocket. They try to get away in a motor boat, but they are tailed by Makuhita on its surfboard. Makuhita rams into the boat, sending Pikachu flying into the water. Ash has Pikachu do a Thunderbolt attack to send Team Rocket blasting off again. Brawly then agrees to a 2-on-2 match with Ash. Ash uses his Taillow against Brawly's Machop. Brawly's Machop knocks out Taillow with a Karate Chop. Next Ash sends out Treecko, which knocks out Machop. Brawly then releases Makuhita against the already tiring Treecko. Just when it seems like Treecko won't give up, Makuhita evolves into Hariyama and finishes off Treecko. Ash takes Treecko to the Pokémon Center to rest up and regrets the fact that he put Treecko through such a tough fight. The episode ends with Ash deciding to stay on the island to train some more.

Mais c’est un bon moment pour le surf, et le Champion, Bastien, a d’autres projets. Écœuré de voir un Champion qui place le plaisir avant ses responsabilités, Sacha ramène Bastien et sa planche de surf, en insistant pour l’affronter immédiatement dans un combat d'Arène. Cependant, notre héros est consterné quand le Dresseur irresponsable qu’il considérait comme un adversaire facile choisit son Makuhita pour tirer le meilleur de lui-même. Le surf serait-il autre chose qu’un simple divertissement, après tout ?

Russian Official Summary

Эш и его друзья добираются до острова Дьюфорд, но гим-лидер Броули больше увлечён сёрфингом, чем битвами. Оскорблённый таким отношением, Эш требует гим-битву, стоя в волнах. Когда начинается битва, Эш слишком упрям, чтобы заметить огрехи в своей стратегии. Он заставляет Трико сражаться на пределе возможностей любого покемона, и Трико незамедлительно проигрывает Макухите Броули. Позже, Эш видит, как Броули занимается сёрфингом со своим покемоном, и понимает, что для этого гим-лидера сёрфинг - это тренировка. Эш осознает своё упрямство, и остаётся на острове, чтобы потренироваться перед реваншем.
