The final battle is approaching, Gym Battle that is. Ash and co. arrive in Sootopolis City, home of Ash's final Gym Battle. There they met Juan, who is not only the Gym Leader but a Grand Festival winner as well. Does Ash have what it takes to beat an accomplished trainer like Juan?
This episode had a very unusual style of battle: Five on Five with the first half being a double battle and the second half being three on three.
Instead of Wallace, like in Ruby and Sapphire, Juan, from Emerald, is the Gym Leader in Sootopolis in the anime.
A Sealeo's mouth was colored wrong during Juan's show.
