Summary
The narrator recaps what happened in the previous episode. Ash and May have been battling each other in a Pokémon contest. Ash has Sceptile, and May has Blaziken. Both Pokémon have used their most powerful attacks. The time limit is up. Who will be the winner? Ash or May?

When the battle is over, both Ash and May still have some points left. They are both tied meaning they both win the contest. Ash and May walk up to each other and shake hands. Nurse Joy holds out a medal to Ash and May. Unfortunately, they didn't expect the result to be a tie, so they only have one medal. Ash and May get an idea. May takes the medal out of the case and throws it in the air. Sceptile jumps up and slices the medal in half. Now both of them have a half of the medal. The audience cheers.

Ash and co. have prepared dinner as a celebration for Ash and May's victory. The Pokémon are already eating their food. Brock makes the final preparations for their dinner. Before the begin eating, May has something to say. She wants to travel to Johto and compete in Pokémon contests there. Max is surprised by this. Brock asks about Max, but May says that Max won't be able to come along. May explains that at first she was a failure, but when she traveled with Ash and Brock things changed. She began to develop a passion for Pokémon contests and Pokémon. Ash and Brock wish May luck on her journey. Max is disappointed. He sadly gets up from the table and walks away. Brock thinks that Max was hoping to continue to travel. Ash gets up to talk to him.

Max throws himself on a swing. Ash walks up to Max. He tells Max that he should be happy for his sister since she has finally reached her goal. Max nods his head. Max doesn't want to leave. To him it was fun watching the Pokémon battles. Ash tells Max that when he becomes a Pokémon trainer, he can battle him. Max thinks it's a great idea. They promise that one day they will meet up again and battle against each other. Ash and Max hope that time comes soon.

Suddenly, the horn to the ship sounds. They have lost totally lost track of time. May and Max hurry down to the ship while Brock takes care of the dishes. May and Max finally board the ship. When the ship begins to sail away, they all wave goodbye to each other. Max reminds Ash his promise, a promise he definitely won't forget. Ash and Brock stop waving when the ship is out of sight. Max knows that Ash is the best Pokémon trainer he has ever met. He can't wait to get back to Hoenn and meet his dad again.

Ash and Brock walk together until they come to the fork in the road. One way leads to Pallet Town, while the other leads to Pewter City. Ash is hungry again. Brock tells Ash that he ate everything yesterday, but Ash is still hungry. Brock then reminds Ash that Pallet Town is pretty close, and he can eat anything he wants when he gets there. Ash remembers and he says goodbye to Brock. Then him and Pikachu run off. Brock then walks back to Pewter City.

Team Rocket is in their balloon floating above the ground. Jessie can sense that Ash and co. are nearby. James and Meowth on the other hand are starving. Jessie tells her friends to be patient because they will now search for Ash and co. Team Rocket looks down using their binoculars. James wonders if they will be able to find them. Meowth states that they have been failing lately, and him and James are starting to lose their confidence. Jessie explains that they are really close in capturing Pikachu. Jessie then reminds them that they were able to get past obstacles when they first teamed up. James and Meowth agree. All three of them have their confidence back again.

Suddenly, lighting bolts blast out in the sky. Team Rocket wonders if it is Pikachu. They use their binoculars to get a closer view on the source of the bolts of lightning. They see the Pokémon, and Jessie wants to capture it. The Pokémon cuts an apple from the tree and begins to eat it. Team Rocket appears behind the bushes. Meowth gets out a rocket launcher and launches a net at the Pokémon. The Pokémon is caught. Team Rocket is happy that they finally got a Pokémon. They begin to reel the Pokémon in towards them. The Pokémon struggles to get out, but it can't. Ash hears the commotion, and he decides to check it out.

A trainer calls out to Team Rocket. He asks why Team Rocket is stealing his Pokémon. Then Ash arrives and sees Team Rocket stealing Pokémon again. He wants to battle Team Rocket, but the trainer tells him that the battle won't be necessary. The trainer jumps down and reveales his true self. It is Gary! Gary calls his Pokémon Erikubu. He tells it to use Iron Tail. Erekibu easily gets out of the net with Iron Tail. Then it uses Thunderpunch to blast Team Rocket off.

Ash looks up Erekibu in his Pokédex, but no data is found on it. Gary explains to Ash that Erekibu is a Pokémon from the Shinou region. Ash wants to battle Gary. Gary agrees to the battle, but the battle will have to wait since Erekibu is low on energy. He tells Ash that he will be waiting at Professor Oak's lab.

Ash finally arrives in Pallet Town. He walks into his house and calls out for his mother. He receives no response from anyone. Since no one is home, he decides to check Professor Oak's lab. When he arrives at Professor Oak's lab, he calls out for Professor Oak and Tracey. He checks several rooms, but they aren't there. Ash finally comes in the last room. Suddenly, stream banners burst out and Professor Oak, Tracey, Ash's mother, and Mr. Mime walk out to greet Ash. Ash walks up to his mother and gives her his Battle Frontier trophy. Tracey walks out with food and thinks they should celebrate Ash's arrival. Before they can celebrate, Ash wants to challenge Gary to a battle. Gary accepts Ash's challenge.

The battle between Ash's Pikachu and Gary's Erekibu begins. Pikachu uses Thunderbolt at the start of the battle. Erikubu uses Thunderbolt too to counter the attack. Ash knows Pikachu hasn't had its best yet. Pikachu uses Quick Attack, but Erikubu dodges the attaack by jumping in the air. Then Erikubu comes down using Iron Tail. Pikachu jumps up and uses its Iron Tail too. Both Pokémon collide into each other. Ash sees that Erikubu is very strong, but he doesn't give up yet. He orders Pikachu to use Thunderbolt again. Pikachu releases the attack at Erikubu, but Erikubu dodges the attack again. Ash expected that. Then he has Pikachu use Volt Tackle. Pikachu charges towards Erikubu with full power. Gary expected Pikachu to use such an attack. Erikubu uses Protect to protect itself from the Volt Tackle. Then it strikes Pikachu with Thunderpunch. Pikachu is knocked out, and Gary wins the battle.

Gary recalls back his Pokémon. Ash picks up Pikachu and makes sure it's alright. Gary walks up to Ash and tells him not to get too excited with his Battle Frontier win. There are many other powerful Pokémon in the Shinou region. Gary then tells Professor Oak that he will be leaving for Shinou now. Gary is a person who doesn't like to waste his time. Professor Oak understands and awaits for his next return. Then Gary walks away. Ash thinks for a moment. Then he announces to everyone that he also wants to go to the Shinou region. Professor Oak isn't surprised by this. Ash's mother has tears in her eyes, but she knows that it is the best for Ash. At night, she begins to sew a new outfit for Ash to wear.

The next day, Ash gets ready for his departure. He leaves all of his Pokémon except for Pikachu at Professor Oak's lab. Professor Oak reminds Ash to see the professor in Masago Town since he is an expert on Pokémon. Before Ash leaves, Professor Oak hands Ash a brand new Pokédex that contains data of all of the Shinou Pokémon. Ash thanks Professor Oak for the gift. Ash's Pokémon wave goodbye to him as he leaves.

Ash is on the ship to Shinou. A gust of wind blows causing his hat to fly off. Suddenly, Aipom comes out with Ash's hat. Ash wonders what Aipom is doing here, but he has no choice. He has to take Aipom with him on his new journey. Meanwhile, Team Rocket is at the bottom of the ship in the water hitching a ride. They won't give up in capturing Pikachu. Ash stares out at the horizon. He wonders what Pokémon will be in Shinou. A bran new journey awaits him.

English Official Summary

The smoke finally clears at the Terracotta Town Pokémon Contest, and the winner is revealed—it is a tie between May and Ash! Both are declared the winner with only one prize medal between the two, so Sceptile cuts it neatly in half. That night, during dinner, May announces her intention to go to Johto and compete in Pokémon Contests. She doesn't want Max to come, though, because she'd depend on her brother too much. Max is sad, but Ash cheers him up by promising to battle some day. Max and May board a ship headed to Hoenn and wave goodbye until the ship is out of view. Ash and Brock also separate, with Ash rushing home to eat. Team Rocket watches the two boys, but they are too demoralized to do anything. They psych themselves up just in time to catch an Electivire in a net. Ash runs over to help the Electric-type Pokémon, but Gary shows up and orders it to escape with Iron Tail. Gary sends the thieves blasting off, and though Ash wants to battle, Gary would just rather go back to Professor Oak's lab. Ash then heads home. Back at the Ketchum household no one is there to greet Ash, so he goes to Oak's lab instead. It seems quiet there, until everyone jumps out to surprise him. Ash gives his Battle Frontier symbols to his mom Delia to keep, and challenges Gary to a battle. Outside, Electivire and Pikachu face off with similar move sets, until Electivire manages to knock out Pikachu with a Protect and ThunderPunch combo. Gary then leaves, returning to Sinnoh. Ash decides he wants to go to Sinnoh as well. That night, Delia makes Ash some new clothes, and the next morning he leaves with just Pikachu at his side. However, Ash's Aipom sneaks on board the boat to Sinnoh and meets up with him. Unknown to any of them, Team Rocket has stowed away as well.

Script Error

The Japanese version doesn't say anything about the judges determining that their point scores are even as it is quite evident that they tied.

Announcer: The judges have determined that both remaining point scores are even. Nurse Joy?
Announcer Japanese: Incredible! Both have exactly the same amount of points remaining! Which means...

Script Error

Takeshi specifically states that he thinks Masato wanted to continue traveling. Brock just says Max was wondering about his journey.

Brock: I'm sure Max is thinking about his journey right about now.
Takeshi: Masato wanted to continue traveling too, I'm sure.

05:46

Script Error

Haruka looks at the clock and notices that its time for them to go and states its the ship's departure time. May also directly addresses her brother that its their ship in the English dub.

May: Max, we've got to go. That's our ship.
Haruka: It's our ship's departure time!
(ハルカ):

06:07

Script Error

Brock says just say hi to Solidad in the English dub but Takeshi says to say hi to Saori-san and the other in the Japanese original.

Brock: Make sure you tell Solidad I said hi.
Takeshi: Say hi to Saori-san and the others for me!
(タケシ)

07:45

Script Error

Takeshi gets a bit shocked by Satoshi's reaction in the Japanese original when they reach the sign to Nibi City and Masara Town. Satoshi though is kind of glad to be close to Masara Town as he can get something to eat. Takeshi was getting a bit sad they had to part and he initially thought Satoshi was a bit too when they both noticed the sign where they had to part ways.

The English dub removed Takeshi's surprising point when he realized that Satoshi was more concerned about reaching Masara Town to get something to eat instead of them being at the point where they had to split ways.

Brock: Huh, me neither.
Takeshi: That's what you meant?

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! ).

A pretty cool episode, and a rather nice conclusion to the AG series.
The Haruka vs Satoshi battle was, as predicted, just there for the sake of having them battle each other. Same for the battle against Shigeru. Not that I mind, for once!

The end of a series... and the start of one of my favorites... It's quite funny how long those series actually last, compared to how fast the transition to the new one always is.
