Summary
Nurse Joy and Chansey walk out with May's Pokémon. Nurse Joy reports that May's Pokémon are healthy. May is ready to enter the Pokémon contest. This Pokémon contest is also her last one before she is qualified to enter the Grand Festival. Nurse Joy says that the Grand Festival is next month, so this contest will also be the last one. If May doesn't win, she won't qualify. May must do some serious training before the contest begins.

May sips her drink and sighs. The pressure is really getting to her now. If she loses, Drew will torture her forever. Max asks if it is all about Drew. May knows it is not, but she thinks Drew already has five ribbons. Ash offers to be May's training partner. May thinks that it is a great idea. Then a person walks up behind May. He whispers in May's ear. It is Harley. May tells Harley that she is going to win the ribbon. Harley accidently drops something. May picks it up. It is Harley's ribbon case, and he has already won five ribbons. Harley doesn't have to enter the contest, but May does. May finds Harley to be very annoying. Harley then walks away. May gets Ash to train with her.

Outside, May's Combusken is up against Ash's Pikachu. Brock thinks that it is a good thing that Harley showed up because May forgot about this contest being her last chance. Also, because of Harley, May is more determined than ever to win the contest. Jessie is also entering the contest. James and Meowth have spent everything they had just so that Jessie could get a new outfit. Her disguise name is Jezebella. She wants Meowth to be her comic relief.

The contest has began, and Jessie is up next on the stage. Meowth tells jokes to people on stage. The judges think that Jessie's performance was good and original. When they get back outside, Meowth rips part of her costume off. He would rather battle than tell jokes. Harley then walks up to them and notices that Jessie is a member of Team Rocket. Harley wants to help Jessie win the contest. He decides to let Jessie use some of his Pokémon. Then he shows them his five ribbons, meaning his Pokémon must be powerful. Team Rocket bows down to Harley. Harley then says that there is one problem. That problem is May because she ruins everything. May brings back bad memories for Harley. He remembers a time when at school May ruined his lunch. Harley wants revenge on May. He sends out Cacturne and Banette. These two Pokémon will help May win the contest. Cacturne has already fallen in love with Jessie at first sight. Harley then tells Jessie his secret plan to get rid of May.

The contest is about to begin. Lilian, the host, introduces everyone to the contest. She then introduces the three judges. May is watching Lilian's speech from the other room. Lilian presents the contest ribbon that everyone will be competing for. Jessie walks in and greets May. May knows her as Jezebella. Jessie tells May that she plans on winning the ribbon. May says that she has four ribbons already. The other coordinators in the same room have only four ribbons too, so it will be a competitive battle.

The contest begins. Everyone shows off their Pokémon and moves. Brock notices that there are some strong opponents in this contest, but that is because they are so close from the Grand Festival. Max hopes May can win. The next coordinator is Jessie. She enters the stage and sends out Cacturne. Cacturne uses Needle Arm. Then Jessie throws a vegetable at Cacturne and it uses Cut. The pieces from the vegetable fall neatly on a plate. The audience goes wild. Ash and co. knows that Jessie will be hard to beat. Then Cacturne uses Cotton Spore followed by Bullet Seed. Her performance comes to an end, and the judges think that it will terrific.

May is the next coordinator to take the stage. Before she can send out her Pokémon, she trips and falls. Ash and Brock assume the pressure for winning the contest must be getting to her. Lilian helps May back up. Then May sends out Combusken. She tells Combusken to use Mega Kick. It does but trips and falls. Pikachu notices that something is wrong. When Combusken uses another attack, Ash sees a white line come out. They run towards the back of the stage. From there they see James and Meowth using Ariados's threads to ruin May's performance. Pikachu uses Quick Attack to bring Ariados's threads, but Ariados ties Pikachu up. May tells Combusken to use Fire Spin. Because Team Rocket is distracted, Combusken uses a perfect Fire Spin. Also, the fire begins to move up to the top of the stage because Ariados's threads have caught on fire. It looks like Combusken is controlling the fire. The fire reaches Ariados. The threads are burnt off of Pikachu too. Pikachu uses Iron Tail to blast James and Meowth out of the building.

With James and Meowth gone, May can continue with her contest. She throws out a frisbee to Combusken, and Combusken uses Sky Uppercut to knock the frisbee right back at May. Harley is getting very upset at seeing May win. May throws the frisbee again, and this time Combusken uses Mega Kick. May walks back into the room and sighs. She is devastated. Jessie is in the back corner watching May. Ash and co. walk in. Ash tells May that it was Team Rocket's fault that May messed up. Then Lilian announces the eight contestants that will move up to round two. May and Jessie both made it. Harley is angry at Team Rocket for failing. He recalls back his Ariados and walks away. Jessie wants to get rid of Ash and co. badly. She thinks of a plan to get rid of May and make her victorious. What could her plan be...?

English Official Summary

May is feeling the pressure at the Mulberry City Pokémon Contest, her last chance to get a fifth ribbon before the Grand Festival. To make things worse, Harley shows up! He has his ribbons already so he doesn't have to compete. But Jessie plans to enter in her Jessebella disguise, so when Harley spots Team Rocket, he offers to loan them his Cacturne and Banette to use against May in the Contest. The Contest begins, and Jessie does great with Cacturne. May and Combusken then take the stage, but unseen by anyone, Harley's Ariados secretly trips up their grand entrance with its webs. Pikachu and Ash sense something's afoot and head to the stage rafters, where they find James, Meowth, and Ariados. Meanwhile, Combusken's Fire Spin display sets Ariados' webs on fire and soon, with Pikachu's help, Team Rocket's plans are up in smoke! May makes a quick recovery and her performance has Harley steaming. With that round over, Jessie and May advance to the second round. Harley is furious at Team Rocket for messing up the plan, but he's not done messing with May yet. What underhanded tricks will he and Team Rocket come up with in the next round of the Contest...?

Russian Official Summary

Во время подготовки к участию в состязании покемонов Малберри, Мэй узнает, что это последний турнир перед Большим Фестивалем. Поскольку до настоящего момента Мэй заработала всего четыре ленточки, в этом турнире она во что бы ты не стало должна победить, иначе ей придётся распрощаться с мечтой об участие в Большом Фестивале. В это же самое время, Джесси очень надеется на победу в этом турнире. Когда Харли узнает, кто на самом деле такая Джессибелла, он предлагает ей использовать его собственного Покемона для того, чтобы победить. Джесси с радостью соглашается, и вместе с Джеймсом и Мяутом, они в вчетвером организуют заговор, чтобы сорвать выступление Мэй на состязании и поддержать Джессибеллу. После нескольких неудач Мэй и Комбаскена, Эш выясняет, что Джеймс и Мяут в тайне использовали паутину Ариадоса, Покемона Харли, чтобы Мэй потеряла равновесие, но при помощи Удара Молнии Пикачу, их подлый заговор раскрывается. Надеясь, реабилитироваться после ранних ошибок, Мэй и Комбаскен создают впечатляющее шоу и Мэй в итоге выходит во второй раунд, также как и Джессибелла и ещё шесть координаторов. Мэй опять полна надежд, но злой Харли в бешенстве и отвращении уходит, дав Джесси угрожающий обет остановить Мэй чего бы это не стоило.

Eyecatch Pre-episode Message

In order to alert the viewers that the episode is about to start, a special eyecatch was used. The eyecatch is a countdown towards the beginning of the episode and contains scenes from previous AG openings, Advance Adventure and Pokémon Symphonic Medley. The split-screen scenes with Haruka and Takeshi were updated versions of the Advance Adventure ones that reflected the changes in the characters' Pokémon teams. More specifically, the scene that depicted Takeshi's Mizugorou and Takeshi's Hassboh was replaced with a scene from Takeshi's Numacraw's battle against Satoshi's Juptile that took place in AG149, while the scene that depicted Haruka's Achamo and Haruka's Agehunt was replaced with a scene from Haruka's Gonbe's battle against Shiromi's Rafflesia that took place in AG151. The countdown ends with Satoshi reciting his catchphrase, "Get Pokémon!" (ポケモンゲットだぜ!, Pokémon getto da ze! ).
