The time has come once more. Ash is ready with his Gym Battle with Winona. Before the battle starts she envokes a prayer to all Flying Pokémon to give her strength. And now the battle begins. Will Ash fly high in the sky or will he crash and burn?
It is time for Ash's and Winona's battle. The elevators climb up atop the pillars. Winona prays before the battle to give her Pokemon power to defeat Ash. As her first Pokemon, Winona sends Altaria. Ash brings Grovyle, suprising everyone. Altaria starts using Dive, so Grovyle counters with Bullet Seed. Altaria dodges and goes to peck him, so Grovyle jumps, but Altaria still pecks him. Altaria goes to attack once more, but Grovyle's speed makes it dodge. Grovyle is exhausted, but Winona is still impressed. Team Rocket got lost while following their way to the battlefield. Meowth gives them some eods and begin to dance. Meowth ponds them, saying the rods are to find items. James and Jessie are sceptical, but change their opinions when they see the rods turned, so they grab them and run to that direction.
Altaria uses Dragon Breath, hurting Grovyle. It uses again, but Grovyle dodges the attacks. Grovyle attacks Altaria with Bullet Seed, though Altaria goes up and attacks with Dragon Breath. Grovyle evades, jumps and uses Leaf Blade, putting Altaria to the ground defeated. Winona is amazed (even if she was off-guard). She sends Pelipper. Ash calls Pelipper back and sends Pikachu. Winona thought as much, so Pikachu uses Thunderbolt while Pelipper Steel Wing. Pelipper touches the ground with the wing, so no damage is dealt. Team Rocket wander underneath the battlefield and are electrocuted by the attack and are blown near the battlefield, seeing Pikachu attacking. So, they go to their original plan.
They go to get Pikachu, but are stricken by Pikachu's attack and blasted off. Pelipper uses Quick Attack (with its wing on the floor) and damages Pikachu. Piakchu uses Quick Attack, but is stopped by Hydro Pump. Pikachu is pushed, but Ash spots Pelipper got its wing from the ground. Pikachu uses Thunder, defeating Pelipper, but with the exhaustion, he is defeated as well.
- At the beginning of the episode, a classic Pokemon identification can be seen. In this case, it is a Primeape.
- Winona's Swellow does not have sparkles coming out of it's Pokéball when it is sent out.
