Summary
Ash has challenged Brandon for the Brave Symbol once more, and things are not looking so good right off the start. Charizard has already been defeated by Brandon’s Dusclops which is still looking very strong indeed. Ash next calls out his Bulbasaur and the Judge starts the match.

Meanwhile, outside, Team Rocket is scaling the wall of the Battle Pyramid, hoping to get inside and make some steals. Dusclops starts the battle off with a Shadow Punch. Ash says that since Bulbasaur can’t dodge, it should take the attack head-on, and that is what Bulbasaur does. Bulbasaur attacks with Razor Leaf as Dusclops uses Mean Look. Dusclops then uses Shadow Punch while Bulbasaur uses Vine Whip. After being hit again with Vine Whip, Bulbasaur launches a Leech Seed which hits its target and begins its battle-long hit point drain.

Dusclops uses Will-O-Wisp and Bulbasaur counters with Razor Leaf. The attacks fizzle out as they hit each other. Dusclops takes more damage from the Leech Seed and uses Confuse Ray as Ash orders a Solarbeam. Confused, Bulbasaur fires the beam upwards and hits Team Rocket, who has managed to get inside now, sending them blasting off again. Brandon orders another Will-O-Wisp and it hits Bulbasaur head-on. Ash calls for a Vine Whip, but Bulbasaur hits itself in its confusion instead. Another Will-O-Wisp is fired from Dusclops and Bulbasaur is sent flying. Ash dives to catch it and holds on to it as it continues to hit itself with its vines.

Ash takes some of the hits from the vines as he explains to Bulbasaur all they’ve been through and how valuable it is. Bulbasaur snaps out of its confusion as Dusclops fires yet another Will-O-Wisp. Bulbasaur dodges it and launches a Solarbeam, knocking Dusclops out of the match.

Brandon next calls out his Ninjask which May looks up in her Pokédex. With Dusclops defeated, Bulbasaur is able to leave the battle now and is recalled for Squirtle to battle. Ninjask uses Aerial Ace to start off and Squirtle uses Rapid Spin to deflect it. Ninjask then creates a Sandstorm to knock Squirtle out of the air, followed by a Double Team. Squirtle uses Water Gun to destroy all the fakes and aims at the real Ninjask. Ninjask uses Aerial Ace and scores a direct hit. Squirtle retaliates with a Hydro Pump as Ninjask launches another Sandstorm. Both attacks fizzle out and Ninjask hits Squirtle with a Sand-Attack. Scott comments that Brandon’s style is to fail with a big attack and score big with a little attack just like he’s done, as Squirtle can’t see any more.

Ninjask prepares to use Aerial Ace again, so Ash tells Squirtle to listen for Ninjask’s wings and dodge it. It does, and flies into the air in a blind Hydro Pump. The water from the attack drenches Squirtle and clears its eyes of the sand. As Ninjask comes at Squirtle in another Aerial Ace, Squirtle uses Skull Bash to defeat it, giving Ash the lead. Recalling Ninjask, Brandon sends out a Solrock and May whips out her Pokédex.

Squirtle attempts to use Hydro Pump, but Solrock dodges and uses Psywave. Squirtle uses Skull Bash again but is stopped inches from Solrock by a Confusion attack and sent flying. Solrock launches a Shadow Ball, but Squirtle bounces off the wall with a Hydro Pump and it misses. Squirtle then attacks with Rapid Spin, but misses and hits the wall, falling to the ground. Solrock takes the opportunity to knock it out with Solarbeam.

Underground, Jessie complains while James and Meowth happily dig a tunnel to get underneath the Pyramid. Back on the battlefield, Ash sends out Bulbasaur for a return battle. Bulbasaur starts with its signature Razor Leaf as Solrock uses Psywave. Solrock stops the leaves with a Confusion and sends them back at Bulbasaur. Bulbasaur uses Vine Whip, but is thrown backwards with another Confusion. Bulbasaur kicks off the wall, however, and takes no damage. It then dodges a Shadow Ball and sends a Leech Seed to Solrock, who fires a Psywave at its attacker. The two fire Solarbeams at the exact same time and are both knocked unconscious by the blast.

Meanwhile, Team Rocket makes it to a dark room of the Pyramid, Jessie complaining about the lights not being on. Bright lights then appear and Registeel and Regirock appear. They use Lock On on Team Rocket and send them blasting off with Hyper Beams. Ash and Brandon, meanwhile, recall their Pokémon and Ash calls to Pikachu. Brandon sends out a Regice to combat the electric Pokémon and the battle begins. Pikachu immediately blasts Regice with a Thunderbolt but it does no damage at all. Regice uses Icy Wind to make the whole room freezing cold and launches an Ice Beam at Pikachu. Pikachu dodges the attack, but half the field is now frozen.

Regice uses Ice Beam again and freezes the other half of the field, making it easier for it to move around, while making it harder for Pikachu. Next, Brandon orders a Focus Punch and Regice moves in for the attack. Pikachu dodges it and shocks Regice into paralysis, hitting it with Iron Tail. Regice retaliates with Ice Beam, and surrounds Pikachu with giant pillars of ice, using the time Pikachu is trapped to use Rest. Pikachu breaks the ice and attacks just as Regice is waking up. With Pikachu so close to it, Regice uses Ice Beam and freezes Pikachu into a giant mound of ice. Ash calls to Pikachu and tells it that it has always pulled out the winning move as the Judge declares Pikachu unable to battle.

However, Pikachu busts the ice with a giant Thunderbolt and hits Regice at the same time, paralyzing it again. This doesn’t faze Regice though, and it comes back with another Focus Punch. Pikachu flies like a pinball, crashing into each pillar of ice on the field and bouncing off the wall. Ash tells Pikachu to use two Iron Tails in a row and Pikachu pulls it off, using the speed of the punch as power. Regice uses Ice Beam and traps Pikachu in between pillars again and uses Rest. Pikachu uses Iron Tail and dashes at Regice in a Volt Tackle, hitting just as Regice is waking up. Regice is declared unable to battle, and Ash has become Master of the Battle Frontier. Ash and Brandon tell their Pokémon that they battled well and Brandon awards Ash the Brave Symbol.

As the sun sets on Fennel Valley once again, Scott awards Ash a plaque saying that he is a member of the Battle Frontier Hall of Fame. He offers Ash the position as a Frontier Brain but Ash declines, saying that there are too many places and people he still has to see. Scott accepts the decision and tells Ash that the position will be open should he change his mind. Saying their goodbyes, Professor Oak, Nurse Joy, Scott, Officer Jenny, Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charizard head back to their respective places of residence and a chapter in Ash’s journey comes to a breathtaking close.

English Official Summary

With Charizard out of the battle for his rematch against Pyramid King Brandon, Ash calls out Bulbasaur. Dusclops performs Mean Look again, while Bulbasaur wraps the Ghost-type with Leech Seed. The two Pokémon are evenly matched, but Bulbasaur takes a beating from the Fire-type move Will-O-Wisp and is affected by Confuse Ray, which causes it to use Vine Whip on itself. Because Leech Seed is taking energy from Dusclops and giving it to Bulbasaur, the Grass-type manages to stay in the fight, using SolarBeam to knock Dusclops out. Brandon sends out Ninjask next, while Ash sends out Squirtle. The two move quickly, and are perfectly matched until Ninjask blinds Squirtle with Sand-Attack. Squirtle listens for its opponent, and eventually recovers by clearing out its eyes with Hydro Pump. Squirtle strikes with Skull Bash, knocking out Ninjask. Brandon then calls out Solrock. Squirtle stays in the battle, but eventually Solrock takes it down with SolarBeam, a Grass-type move. Meanwhile, Team Rocket is sneaking into the Battle Pyramid, but they are caught and blasted away by Regirock and Registeel. In battle, Ash sends Bulbasaur back out, who does a good job of dodging. Eventually Solrock and Bulbasaur face off with their SolarBeam attacks, resulting in a double KO. Ash and Brandon send out their final Pokémon, Pikachu and Brandon's new Regice. Regice's attacks quickly ice up the field, making it hard for Pikachu to keep steady. Pikachu still makes an impact with Thunderbolt and Iron Tail, but Regice traps Pikachu and then uses Rest to heal up. Regice hits Pikachu with Ice Beam, freezing it in a block of ice, and the Electric-type is almost defeated, but Pikachu breaks out with Thunderbolt and strikes back with Iron Tail. Regice attempts to trap Pikachu and use Rest again, but Pikachu breaks down and charges with Volt Tackle, knocking out Regice. Ash is awarded the Brave Symbol, making him a Master of the Battle Frontier and entering him into the Hall of Fame. Scott offers Ash a Frontier Brain position, but he turns it down in favor of more traveling. Squirtle, Charizard, and Bulbasaur all return to their homes.

Script Error

Haruka just comments that Fushigidane is Satoshi's second Pokémon to battle while May says Bulbasaur looks happy to battle.

May: Bulbasaur looks super happy to be battling.
Haruka: Satoshi's second is Fushigidane, huh?

01:21

Culture Reference

The English dub episodes 'Pace - The Final Frontier' is a pun off of Star Trek's famous monologue line "Space: The Final Frontier" used during the intro's of TOS and TNG.
03:24

Script Error

Team Rocket talks about the Battle Frontier while Rocket Gang is disappointed that they get blasted off just as they make it to the top of the pyramid.

Character English Translation Japanese
James Blasted by a bulb! This can't be!
Jessie We're not in the Battle Frontier and we still got beat! We worked so hard to climb up there...
Meowth But if they ever offer a sap symbol, look out! This was destined to happen to us!

04:11

Script Error

Joy originally states that its super effective.

Joy: And a powerful one too!
Joy-san: It's super effective!

05:43

Script Error

Haruka did not assume that Zenigame would be the next to battle like May did.

May: I thought Squirtle would be next.
Haruka: Satoshi picked Zenigame.

09:24

Script Error

Once again the English dub doesn't use super effective like the Japanese original.

Jenny: Squirtle is a water type. That means if it makes contact it'll be really bad.
Junsa: So, if it hits a Water type like Zenigame, it'll be super effective!

10:01

Script Error

Apparently Meowth was a Diglet in a previous life! Jessie insults Meowth in the English dub while Musashi just says she's tired.

Character English Translation Japanese
James Doesn't it feel grand doing what we do best? This really is the right thing for us.
Meowth You know, I must have been a Diglet in a past life. Digging holes is what we started off with.
Jessie You sure smell in this one! But I hate getting tired!

12:35

Script Error

The Team Rocket dialog is altered to have a bunch of insults being traded between them. Musashi has the last line of dialog in the Japanese original while James has the last line of dialog in the English dub.

Character English Translation Japanese
Jessie And I've got shovel blisters too! We've made it all the way here...!
Meowth Somebody's trying to tell us somethin'! We got no good parts today!
Jessie That we should stop digging holes because you smell? I don't want to say the same thing twice!
James Meowth's not the only one who offends! But there's nothing else we could say!
Jessie / Team Rocket You stink! Bye!
James Hey! Speak for yourself. *Scene dialog completed*

14:06

Script Error

The English dub seems to have issues with using 'super effective' in the dialog.

Oak: Quite powerful making contact with Regice which is an ice type.
Okido: Yeah. If it hits Regice, an Ice type, it'll be super effective.

17:15

Script Error

Yet again 'super effective' is written out of the English dub.

Joy: A pair of perfect hits!
Joy-san: It's super effective!

17:49

Culture Reference

Tying in the entire Battle Frontier arc, the Battle Frontier (バトルフロンティア) song plays during the final moments of the battle in the Japanese original. The English dub just uses it's own music during the segment.
00:01

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! ).

What I personally think was the key that made this episode good was the tying in of the Battle Frontier song at the end of the battle. It really tied in the entire Battle Frontier arc unlike the English dub which had some rather boring music in comparison. The English dub could have just done Battle Frontier music without the lyrics to at least give the battle a lot more energy.

Music Notes: 2:35 - Movie 2 music unreleased, 5:05 Movie 5 unreleased, 13:21 & 14:14 are the same track played twice but I'm not sure what it is. Let us know if you know what that track is.

Not to say this battle wasn't good, I still believe it could've been better (except Pikachu's fight against Regice, which was really nice), though I couldn't quite say what should've been improved... maybe a bit less predictable would've nailed it.

And I agree with you Sunain, the Battle Frontier music was a really good idea.

There's one thing I've been wondering, though... is whether they'll think back to that episode if one day they decide to end the series (or have Satoshi 'retire', though both scenarios are still highly unlikely at this point, and will remain so for still so many years).
