As the battle rounds for the Mulberry Contest begin, James and Meowth trick Ash, Brock and Max into a huge metal box, so that they can't cheer May on, in hopes that it will cause her to lose. Harley is more determined than ever to make sure May loses. May and Jessie easily breeze through the battle rounds. As the final round arrives, May sticks with her trusty Squirtle and Jessie stays with Harley's Banette. Will May be able to beat Jessie and win her final ribbon, so she can compete in the Grand Festival? And what about Ash and the others, can Drew rescue them in time?
