Summary

English Official Summary

When Dawn and Ash reach Sandalstraw Town, they meet two familiar friends: Kenny and Barry! Kenny plans to enter the Sandalstraw Contest, while Barry is training for the upcoming Pokémon Ping-Pong competition—but their conversation is cut short when Piplup glows as if it's ready to evolve! However, Piplup isn't well, so it's off the Pokémon Center so Piplup can rest. Dawn uses this opportunity to talk to Piplup about Evolution, but it gets upset and runs away! Everyone splits up to search the nearby forest, and Dawn finds Piplup using Bide to stop its Evolution. She doesn't understand why it won't evolve, and that makes Piplup angry enough to run from her again. When Dawn chases Piplup deeper into the forest, she finds it stuck in an Ariados web. Dawn saves Piplup from the Ariados, but then they're surrounded by an entire swarm of Ariados! Piplup uses Bide to defeat them, and Dawn realizes this is just like the day when she and Piplup first met. Barry and Kenny are also searching the forest for Piplup, but Barry's Empoleon and Kenny's Prinplup are kidnapped by Team Rocket's giant Piprinoleon robot! The robot finds and grabs Piplup too, so Dawn sneaks inside the robot and confronts Team Rocket. Piplup forces its way through a duct in the robot to reach Dawn and back her up; all this time, it's wanted to remain a Piplup so it can protect Dawn. Piplup uses Whirlpool to bust open the robot, and Dawn's friends arrive to provide support. With their help, Piplup sends Team Rocket shooting into the sky, and Dawn promises to always be partners with her Piplup. No Evolution needed! Later, at the Pokémon Center, Nurse Joy gives Dawn an Everstone to prevent Piplup from evolving. Now everyone can concentrate on the Sandalstraw Contest—as well as practicing their Pokémon Ping-Pong!

Finnish Official Summary

Dawn aikoo osallistua tulevaan Sandalstraw’n kilpailemaan ja hän on juuri valmistautumassa treenaamaan – kun yhtäkkiä kaikki huomaavat Piplupin käyttäytyvän hyvin kummallisesti. Dawnin vanha ystävä Kenny osallistuu myös kisaan ja lyö vieläpä hynttyyt yhteen Ashin vastustajan Barryn kanssa (joka osallistuu Pokémon-pingisotteluun). Kaikkia huolestuttaa Piplupin outo käytös (mikä johtuu siitä, että väsynyt Piplup käyttää Bide-liikettä estääkseen itseään kehittymästä). Rakettiryhmä saa päähänsä, että saman Pokémonin kaikki kolme kehitysvaihetta olisivat täydellinen lahja pomolle: Dawnin Piplup, Kennyn Prinlup ja Barryn Empoleon. Sillä välin Piplup suuttuu Dawnille, koska hän haluaa sen kehittyvän Prinplupiksi, ja karata – vain joutuakseen ilkeiden Ariadosien vangiksi. Mutta kuten silloin, kun Dawn ja Piplup tapasivat ensi kertaa, kaksikko lyö ikävät Ariadosit Piplupin voimakkailla hyökkäyksillä. Rakettiryhmän katala suunnitelma Piplupin, Prinplupin ja Empoleonin varastamiseksi pyörähtää käyntiin ja se olisikin saattanut onnistua ilman Piplupin urheutta ja sen vahvaa Whirlpoolia, mikä lähettää Rakettiryhmän taas häippäisemään. Dawn ymmärtää, että Piplup ei halua kehittyä, koska heidän välilleen on kehittynyt erityinen side sen ollessa Piplup. Dawn tekee mieluusti Piplupille mieliksi. Hän ottaa hoitaja Joylta vastaan Ikikiven, joka estää Piplupia ikinä kehittymästä.

Russian Official Summary

В рамках подготовки к состязаниям в Сендельстро, Доун решает устроить тренировочный бой, но тут все замечают, что Пиплап ведет себя как-то странно. Вскоре герои узнают, что в состязаниях примет участие старый друг Доун Кенни, а также старый соперник Эша Барри, который будет участвовать в соревновании по пинг-понгу. Поведение же Пиплапа становится всё более странным. В скорее, однако, оказывается, что он просто изо всех сил пытается не эволюционировать. Тем временем, Команда Р решает, что их босс будет счастлив получить в подарок все эволюционное трио: Пиплапа, Принплапа Кенни и Эмполеона Барри. Пиплап же всё больше злится на Доун за то, что она хочет, чтобы он эволюционировал в Принплапа. В итоге он убегает от нее, но в скорее оказывается в лапах Ариадоса. Впрочем, как и в первый день их знакомства, Доун и Пиплап одерживают верх над Ариадосом, благодаря мощным атакам Пиплапа. Команда Р же начинает свой коварный план по похищению трёх покемонов, но Водоворот Пиплапа вновь отправляет их в пролёт. Доун вскоре осознаёт желание Пиплапа не эволюционировать и поддерживает его в этом. Сестра Джой вручает ей Эверстоун, благодаря которому Пиплап никогда не эволюционирует.

Norwegian Official Summary

Dawn gjør seg klar for sin deltakelse i den forstående Sandalstrawkonkurransen, og hun gjør seg klar til å trene når alle plutselig merker at Piplup oppfører seg veldig rart. Etter at de oppdager at hennes gamle venn Kevin skal delta også sammen med Ash sin rival Barry (som skal konkurrere i Pokémon PingPong-turneringen), blir alle bekymret for Piplups nervøse atferd (som viser seg å være en sliten Piplup som bruker Bide for å forhindre at den utvikler seg), når Team Rocket bestemmer seg for at den komplette evolusjonstrioen med Piplup, Kennys Prinlup og Barrys Empoleon vil være den perfekte gaven til sjefen. Imens blir Piplup sint på Dawn for at hun ønsker at den skal utvikle seg til Prinplup og den flykter av sted, bare for å bli fanget og truet av en ondskapsfull Ariados. Men akkurat som den første dagen Dawn og Piplup møttes, beseirer duoen den sjofle Ariados med Piplups kraftfulle angrep. Så settes Team Rockets ondsinnede plan om å stjele Piplup, Prinplup og Empoleon ut i live, og de kunne ha lykkes om det ikke hadde vært for Piplups mot og en kraftfull Whirlpool, som blåser Team Rocket av sted igjen. Dawn innser raskt at Piplup ikke ønsker å utvikle seg på grunn av båndet mellom dem slik som Piplup er, så Dawn aksepterer med glede Piplups ønske. Hun aksepterer også en Everstone fra Nurse Joy, som vil forhindre at Piplup noen gang utvikler seg.

Swedish Official Summary

För att göra sig redo för sitt framträdande i den kommande Sandalstraw-tävlingen, förbereder Dawn sig för att träna – när helt plötsligt alla märker att Piplup beter sig väldigt konstigt. Våra Hjältar får veta att Dawns gamla vän Kenny också ska delta när de slår sig ihop med Ash gamla rival Barry (som ska tävla i Pokémons Pingis-evenemang), varefter alla blir oroliga över Piplups bekymmersamma uppförande (vilket visar sig vara en missmodig Piplup som använder Bide för att hindra sig själv från att utvecklas), medan Team Rocket bestämmer sig för att hela utvecklingstrion bestående av Piplup, Kennys Prinlup och Barrys Empoleon skulle bli en perfekt gåva till Bossen. Piplup blir arg på Dawn för att hon vill att Piplup ska utvecklas till en Prinplup och rusar iväg, bara för att bli fångad och hotad av en illasinnad Ariados. Men det blir precis som första dagen Dawn och Piplup möttes; duon besegrar den påstridiga Ariados med Piplups kraftfulla attacker. Därefter sätts Team Rockets plan att stjäla Piplup, Prinplup och Empoleon i verket, och de kunde ha lyckats om det inte varit för Piplups mod och mäktiga Whirlpool, som får Team Rocket att flyga iväg igen. Dawn inser snart att Piplup inte vill utvecklas på grund av bandet de två delar genom den Piplup är, så Dawn godtar tacksamt Piplups önskan. Från Syster Joy tar hon även emot en Everstone, som ska förhindra att Piplup någonsin utvecklas.

Danish Official Summary

Dawn er ved at gøre sig klar til sit træningsprogram op til den forestående Sandalstraw-konkurrence, da alle lige pludseligt bemærker, at Piplup opfører sig højst mærkværdigt. Samtidigt viser det sig, at Dawns gamle ven Kenny også er med i konkurrencen, hvor han danner team med Ash’ gamle rival Barry (der skal deltage i Pokémon Ping Pong-konkurrencen). Alle er imidlertid bekymrede over Piplups besynderlige opførsel (der viser sig at være Piplups modvilje mod at udvikle sig), men Team Rocket beslutter, at udviklingstrioen Piplup, Kennys Prinplup og Barrys Empoleon ville udgøre den perfekte gave til Bossen. Samtidigt bliver Piplup vred på Dawn, fordi hun vil have den til at udvikle sig til en Prinplup, og løber sin vej, men bliver fanget og truet af nogle ondskabsfulde Ariados. Men lige som den allerførste gang Dawn og Piplup mødte hinanden, besejrer duoen Ariados med Piplups stærke angreb. Nu sættes Team Rockets ondskabsfulde planer om at stjæle Piplup, Prinplup og Empoleon i værk, og de ville være sluppet af sted med det, havde det ikke været for Piplups mod og en særdeles kraftig Whirlpool, der får Team Rocket til at suse af sted igen. Da Dawn endelig erkender, at Piplup ikke ønsker at udvikle sig på grund af det særlige bånd, der er imellem de to, accepterer hun taknemmeligt Piplups ønske. Til sidst forærer Nurse Joy hende en Everstone, som skal sørge for, at Piplup aldrig nogensinde udvikler sig.

Special First-Airing Segment The Jagged Spirit in Pokémon

Shoko-tan was on the show and she voiced jagged-eared Pichu, a Pokémon all the attention was centered around in the 12th Pocket Monsters movie. She introduced the "Get Fired up, Jagged-eared Pichu! (もえよ ギザみみピチュー!)" ending song. She then described the jagged-eared Pichu who is a cute girl, has jagged ears, is full of energy and is light-hearted. It's a fun song that can be sung and danced to on many occasions, like sports festivals, so please kindle your jagged enthusiasm, memorize it and dance to it! Furthermore, she announced that from this episode on until June of 2009, members of Pokémon Sunday would hijack the show! They appeared various times throughout that time period. The computer desktop wallpaper and cellphone backgrounds presents campaign was also announced.
