English Official Summary

Dawn plans to use some new Pokémon Ping-Pong tricks in the Sandalstraw Contest, where she hopes to earn her fifth ribbon. Of course, her friend Kenny wants to win and tie Dawn at four ribbons each! As Dawn and Ambipom practice for the Contest, Dawn's Mamoswine sits on the sidelines and pretends to be bored—but it can't resist interfering with the practice session. Dawn's not upset; she knows Mamoswine just wants to be in the Contest. But this Contest is Ambipom's time to shine. As the appeals round begins, Jessie (disguised as "Jessilina") shows off Mime Jr.'s Teeter Dance, and Kenny has his Machoke work its muscles. Then Dawn's Ambipom uses its double tails to execute ping-pong moves, earning Dawn a place in the second round with Jessie and Kenny. As Dawn waits for the second round to start, Kenny comes over to continue their friendly rivalry. He wants to battle Dawn in the final round, and neither Coordinator plans to lose this one! Sure enough, Dawn and Ambipom manage to defeat Jessie and Seviper in the semifinal battle, which means Kenny is Dawn's final opponent. Over in the spectator seats, Ash's rival Barry is excited to see his first Contest, and Mamoswine is glued to the action too—but it still pretends it's too cool to care! The final round match pits Dawn's Ambipom against Kenny's Prinplup. When Prinplup fires off a BubbleBeam attack, Ambipom uses Focus Punch to hit the BubbleBeam right back. Kenny knew Dawn planned something like this, so he orders Prinplup to return the volley using Metal Claw. The two Pokémon hit the bubbles back and forth, just like Pokémon Ping-Pong! It's a well-played battle, but Prinplup goes on the offensive and uses Drill Peck to knock out Ambipom. Now Kenny can get his fourth ribbon, and Barry gets an idea: why doesn't Dawn enter the upcoming Pokémon Ping-Pong Tournament? Ambipom likes the idea, so it's settled: the tournament will be their next event!

Chegou o dia do Torneio Pokémon de Sandalstraw onde Dawn e seu velho amigo e rival Kenny irão se enfrentar!

Finnish Official Summary

Sandalstraw’n kisan pikku hiljaa käynnistyessä Dawn ja Ambipom treenaavat melko erikoisella tavalla, nimittäin liikkeillä, jotka ovat saaneet vaikutteita Pokémon-pingiksestä. Tämä kiinnostaa Kennyä ja etenkin Barryä! Jessie (Jessilinaksi naamioituneena) aloittaa kilpailun Jamesin Mime Jr. parinaan ja hoitaa ensimmäisen kierroksen hienosti kotiin saamalla koko stadionin tanssimaan! Kenny ja Dawn esiintyvät myös, ja kahdeksan semifinalistin joukkoon päätyvät lopulta Jessilina, Kenny ja Dawn. Dawnin Ambipom päihittää Jessilinan, mikä tarkoittaa, että kilpailun finaalissa ovat vastakkain nämä kaksi koordinaattoria: Dawn ja Kenny! Kamppailu on nopeatempoinen ja raivokas. Sekä Ambipom että Prinplup käyttävät hyväkseen Pokémon-pingisliikkeitä. Kun kellossa on jäljellä enää minuutti ja kaksikymmentä sekuntia, Prinplupin täyden tehon Drill Peck voittaa Ambipomin ja Kenny saa juuri sen, mitä lähti hakemaan: neljännen nauhansa – voittamalla Dawnin! Dawn ei silti masennu, vaan katsoo tulevaan ja odottaa uutta tilaisuutta voittaa viides kilpailunauhansa. Sankarimme hyvästelevät siis Kennyn tältä erää. Yllättäen Barry, joka on seurannut päivän tapahtumia, ehdottaa että Dawn ja Ambipom voisivat yrittää tosissaan pärjätä pingiksessä – ja ajatus saakin Ambipomin todella innostumaan siitä, mitä tulevaisuus saattaa tuoda tullessaan.

Russian Official Summary

Готовясь к состязанию в Сендельстро, Доун и Амбипом устраивают необычную тренировку. Вскоре оказывается, что они решили использовать движения, вдохновлённые пинг-понгом. Разумеется, это интригует Кенни и приводит Барри в настоящий восторг. С началом состязаний, первой выходит Джесси в обличье Джессилинны. Она устраивает невероятное представление с Маймом Младшим, и все зрители пускаются в пляс. Кенни и Доун так же не ударяют в грязь лицом. Таким образом, в число восьми финалистов входят Джесси, Кенни и Доун. Вскоре, однако, Амбипом выбивает из турнира Джесси. Таким образом, в финал выходят Доун и Кенни. Начинается быстрая и отчаянная битва. И Амбипом, и Принплап используют отдельные движения из пинг-понга. Однако, за минуту и 20 секунд до конца схватки Принплан использует мощное движение, которое выводит Амбипома из строя. В итоге Кенни получает 4-ю ленту, одолев саму Доун. Доун, впрочем, не расстраивается. Она уже смотрит в будущее с надеждой получить свою пятую ленту. На этом наши герои прощаются с Кенни. Внезапно Барри, наблюдавший весь день за состязаниями, предлагает Доун и Амбипому заняться пинг-понгом. Амбипом принимает это предложение с особым восторгом.

Norwegian Official Summary

I det Sandalstrawkonkurransen skal til å begynne, finner vi Dawn og Ambipom utføre en uvanlig øvelse. De utnytter det som viser seg å være trekk som er inspirert av Pokémon Ping Pong, som vekker interesse hos Kenny og selvsagt begeistrer Barry. Jessie (forkledd som Jessilina) er først ut i turneringen sammen med James sin Mime Jr. og setter i scene en ganske oppfinnsom første runde ved å få hele stadion til å utføre en slags dans! Kenny og Dawn opptrer også, og de åtte semifinalistene inkluderer Jessilina, Kenny og Dawn. Men Dawns Ambipom eliminerer Jessilina, og man står igjen til slutt i konkurransen med to korrdinatorer til det endelige oppgjøret: Dawn mot Kenny! Kampen er rask og voldsom, og både Ambipom og Prinplup utnytter litt Pokémon Ping Pong trekk i deres strategi, når, med bare ett minutt og tyve sekunder igjen på klokken, en Drill Peck med maksimum styrke fra Prinplup beseirer Ambipom, og Kenny ender opp med akkurat det han ønsket: hans fjerde Ribbon – ved å beseire Dawn! Men hun føler seg ikke nedfor på noen som helst måte, og Dawn ser fram til enda en sjanse å vinne sitt femte konkurranse Ribbon, i det vennene våre tar farvel med Kenny. Barry har vært tilskuer til dagens kamper, og foreslår at Dawn og Ambipom prøver seg på Ping Pong – en ide som ser ut til å falle i veldig god jord hos Ambipom.

Swedish Official Summary

Medan man förbereder sig för att dra igång Sandalstraw-tävlingen, håller Dawn och Ambipom på med en lite ovanlig träning, när de drar nytta av vad som visar sig vara moves inspirerade av Pokémon Pingis, vilket fängslar Kenny och givetvis hänför Barry. Jessie (förklädd som Jessilina) startar först i Tävlingen i par med James Mime Jr. och de gör en i sanning nyskapande första rond genom att få hela arenan med sig på dans! Kenny och Dawn framträder också, och bland de åtta semi-finalisterna finns Jessilina, Kenny och Dawn. Men Dawns Ambipom slår ut Jessilina, vilket slutligen leder fram till Tävlingens avslutande kamp mellan de två sista Koordinatorerna: Dawn mot Kenny! Striden är snabb och ursinnig, och både Ambipom och Prinplup utnyttjar några Pokémon Pingis-moves i sitt Stridande, när en Drill Peck med maximal-styrka från Prinplup besegrar Ambipom med bara en minut och tjugo sekunder kvar av tiden – vilket ger Kenny exakt vad han ville ha; hans fjärde Ribbon genom en seger över Dawn! Men utan att på något sätt känna sig nedslagen, ser Dawn framåt mot en ny chans att vinna sin femte Tävlings-Ribbon medan våra Hjältar tar farväl av Kenny. Plötsligt föreslår Barry, som har tittat på dagens händelser, att Dawn och Ambipom ska göra ett allvarligt försök med Pingis – en idé som verkar få Ambipom att bli mycket entusiastisk inför framtiden och vad den kan föra med sig.

Danish Official Summary

Under forberedelserne til Sandalstraw-konkurrencen er Dawn og Ambipom i gang med at træne med nogle højst besynderlige træk inspireret af  Pokémon Ping Pong, hvilket vækker Kennys interessse, mens Barry naturligvis er himmelhenrykt. Forklædt som Jessilina er Jessie den første deltager i konkurrencen sammen med James’ Mime Jr. Deres første runde er helt enestående og nytænkende, idet de får hele stadionet op at danse! Kenny og Dawn optræder også, og blandt de otte semifinalister finder vi Jessilina, Kenny og Dawn. Da Dawns Ambipom slår Jessilina, er konkurrencens to finaledeltagere endelig fundet til den afgørende dyst: Dawn mod Kenny! Kampen raser indædt, og både Ambipom og Prinplup gør brug af træk fra Pokémon Ping Pong. Da der kun er et minut og tyve sekunder tilbage af kampen, bliver Ambipom besejret af Prinplups Drill Peck for fuld kraft, og Kenny får præcis det, han ønskede sig: sit fjerde Ribbon – ved at vinde over Dawn! Men hun lader sig ikke slå ud, og ser fremad mod en ny chance for at vinde sit femte Konkurrenceribbon. Da vore helte har sagt farvel til Kenny, foreslår Barry, der har fulgt dagens begivenheder, at Dawn og Ambipom går seriøst i gang med Ping Pong – en idé, der tilsyneladende gør Ambipom vildt spændt på fremtiden, og hvad den bringer.
