Major event(s)
In a Pokémon contest, May discovers that one of the coordinators (called Savannah) is actually an adult and mother!
Pokémon: Advanced Challenge


May is headed for the Rubello Town Pokemon Contest, where at least one ribbon is needed to enter. She runs into Drew, and both of them are mobbed by the Mothers for Pokemon--a group of women who adore Pokemon Coordinators. One of them, Savannah, is a Coordinator herself, and will be competing in the upcoming contest, but she is really nervous.

Jessie wants to enter the contest, but can't since she has never won a ribbon.

Later, May is practicing outside the Pokemon Center when she spots Drew with his new Masquerain. She tries to show off her Bulbasaur, but it won't listen to her.

The next day, May is helping Savannah practice when they are accosted by Team Rocket, who takes both May's and Savannah's ribbons. The kids take down Team Rocket's balloon and Jessie returns the stolen ribbons. Savannah's Lairon uses a Water-type move to send the thieves blasting off.

Savannah's daughter Sandra reassures her mother, while May is feeling confident again about the contest.


  • Savannah (Human)
  • Sandra (Human)

  • In this episode, Team Rocket uses a variation of their motto.
  • The dub title is a pun of the phrase "a man with a plan".
  • The Contest poster in the beginning of the episode showed a Bulbasaur among other Pokémon. May chooses to use her Bulbasaur this episode.


  • This most infamous Trainer's Choice incorrectly claims that Arbok evolves into Seviper. Seviper and the other two choices, Sableye and Suicune don't evolve at all, and Arbok is the only Pokémon in an evolution chain.
  • In both the original and the dub, May mentioned that she used Skitty in the Fallarbor Contest, but she actually used Beautifly in the contest in question.
  • When Team Rocket does their motto, Jessie states that the Contest is tonight, but at the end of the episode, May says the Contest is tomorrow.
  • Also in Team Rocket's Motto, James states that Jessie's winning streak would go from zero to two, but with May's two Ribbons and Savannah's Ribbon, her "winning streak" would be three.
    • However, he probably said it so it would rhyme.
  • Wobbuffet appears to have used Counter in response to Flamethrower, a Special move. The correct move to produce a favorable result would have been Mirror Coat.
    • However, this is not the first time this has happened, with Jessie usually telling Wobbuffet to use Counter against any attack launched at it. The only exception is in Imitation Confrontation.
  • Savannah calls Brock "a men who really understands."
