'''Triple Leaders, Team Threats''' is the 5th episode of the [[Pokémon: Best Wishes!]] anime.
 
   
 
==Episode Plot==
 
==Episode Plot==
In this episode Ash has his first gym battles with [[Chili]], [[Cress]] and [[Cilan]].
+
Ash and Pikachu run and see Striaton City, where Ash hopes to win a badge. Ash comes to the town and wonders what the Gym Leader and its Pokémon are like. Iris asks him does he know where the Gym is. Ash wishes he knew, so Iris tells he is a kid, as she gives an apple to Axew. A lad comes and sees Axew, deducing it is a perfect partner for the young lady. Iris thanks him, while the lad sees Pikachu and studies him up close, being amazed for seeing one. He thinks one must be lucky to have Pikachu, but Ash admits he is from Kanto. Ash and Iris introduce themselves to the lad, whose name is Cilan. Cilan tells he is a Pokémon Connoisseur, one that can describe a bond with the human and Pokémon, helping to form closer relationships. Ash asks what does Cilan think of himself and Pikachu, but Iris reminds him why they came here. Cilan leads Ash and Iris to the Gym.
   
[[File:Striaton Challenge.png|thumb|left|Ash motivates Oshawott]]Ash enters [[Striaton City]] with Iris. He begins to wonder where the Pokémon [[Gym]] is located. At that time, a green haired Pokémon connoisseur boy named [[Cilan]] appears and takes an interest on [[Ash's Pikachu]]. When Ash asks the location of the Gym Cilan leads him there. But the Gym turns out to be a restaurant. Two other boys (which happened to be Chili and Cress) make Ash sit down when he says "I have a request!" knowing he will ask for a Gym battle and waiter him. Confused and annoyed by the boys he yells "I want a Gym battle!!". Suddenly the restaurant becomes a Gym with the three boys Cilan, Chili, and Cress as the Gym Leaders. Cilan says that Ash can fight with only one person. Seeing Ash who wants to win all three, Cress says Ash can battle all three but has to win in two battles to win the badge. Happy with this idea Ash begins his battle.
+
Ash barges in, but sees it is a restaurant. The two lads, along with Cilan, ask Ash what would he like to drink or eat, but Ash yells out he wants a Gym Battle. Ash tries to leave, but Cilan, along with his brothers, Chili and Cress, accept his challenge, as all three are Gym Leaders. The news of battle makes the female guests overjoyed. Ash comes to the battlefield, while Iris and the female fans cheer for the brothers. The brothers tell Ash he can choose any of the brothers to fight against to win the Trio Badge. Cilan sends Pansage, Chili Pansear and Cress Panpour. The brothers want to know whom has Ash chosen, so Ash decides to battle all three of them. The brothers (as well as Iris) are surprised, but they accept Ash's proposal; as long as he won two battles, Ash will win the badge.
   
Ash first meets Chili in battle and sends out [[Ash's Pignite|Tepig]]. Ash tells Tepig to Tackle Pansear but this attack has less effect on Pansear. Pansear retaliates with a Fire Punch hurting Tepig. Pansear uses Flamethrower and Tepig uses Ember. Flamethrower wins the Ember and attacks Tepig. After this, Chili tells Pansear to use Dig. A confused Tepig is hit by Pansear from underneath. Ash tells Tepig to keep running. This works for some time but Tepig is hit again by Pansear and flies away. Ash tells Tepig to jump in to the hole Pansear dug and Tepig does so. A surprised Chili sees Tepig coming out having a firm bite on Pansear's tail. Chili tells Pansear to slam Tepig on the floor which it does successfully. But Tepig still standing, whirls Pansear by its tail and throws it on the ground and uses Ember upon Ash's command. With another speedy Tackle, Tepig slams Pansear to the wall and wins the battle.
+
Chili chooses Pansear, while Ash sends Tepig, as it is its first battle. Tepig tackles Pansear, who falls down softly. Pansear uses Fire Punch, hitting Tepig. Pansear uses Flamethrower, countering Tepig's Flamethrower and hitting it. Pansear uses Dig, throwing Tepig away. Pansear digs again and hits Tepig, despite it running away. Pansear digs once more, but Tepig chews Pansear's tail. Pansear tries to shake it off, bashing it to the ground. Tepig swings Pansear and slams it to the ground. Tepig uses Ember on Pansear, then tackles it. Tepig comes to Ash, who praises him, as Pansear is defeated. Iris is pleased Ash won, while Chili compliments Ash and Tepig. Cress comes, as he is Ash's next challenger. Meanwhile, Team Rocket came to Striaton City, and go into an alley, where they are supposed to get more info on the next mission.
   
[[File:Ps.png|thumb|left|The little Tepig that could.]]Cress was next to face Ash. The Pokémon he chose was Panpour. Realizing that Pikachu may have an advantage over Water-types, he decides to send Pikachu in. However the battle was extremely difficult and, even though he had the type advantage, Ash lost. The score was tied and the next match would decide it. Ash's final opponent was Cilan and he brought out his Pansage. Ash decided to go with Oshawatt. Cilan proved to be one tough opponent and things were just about to get worse, because when Cilan talks about tasting time, it was a sign that his victory was assured. Cilan told Pansage to use SolarBeam. The episode ends as Pansage was charging up the SolarBeam's power.
+
Ash uses Pikachu against Cress' Panpour. Pikachu starts with Quick Attack, though Panpour uses Double Team, causing Pikachu to hit an illusion and gets scratched. Panpour uses Water Gun, which Pikachu dodges. Pikachu goes to use Thunderbolt, but Panpour uses Water Gun on Pikachu's feet, stopping his attack. Panpour uses Water Gun, then scratches Pikachu, which pleases the fans, except Iris. Pikachu uses Volt Tackle, but trips over as Panpour uses Mud Sport. Using Water Gun, Panpour defeats Pikachu. Iris sees the next battle decides whether Ash gets the badge or not. In the sewers, Giovanni contacts Team Rocket. He tells them some of his sources claim that there is a lab that contains future energy, which can make dreams real. He orders them to take the Dream Mist, as they can make a powerful Pokémon army to conquer the world with this energy, for that is Team Rocket's goal. Team Rocket is pleased they can complete the goal, based on their success.

Cilan is pleased with Ash's bond with his Pokémon. Ash claims he will do his best to get the Trio Badge, sending Oshawott against Pansage. Oshawott gets scared of Pansage, so Ash and Pikachu push Oshawott to the field. Ash reminds Oshawott it did rescue Axew and Pikachu from Team Rocket, so Oshawott is ready to battle. Oshawott goes to tackle, but Pansage dodges and retaliates with Bullet Seed, hitting its lower bottom. Cilan tells that Oshawott and Ash should mature. Ash is angered, so Cilan gives him the proof: Pansage bites Oshawott's head, causing Oshawott to move randomly. Oshawott uses Water Gun, though misses Pansage. Oshawott repeats the attack and hits Oshawott in mid air. Cilan admits it was good, but they will never win, as Pansage uses Solarbeam and fires it on Oshawott, who is terrified by the attack.

Episode PlotEdit

Ash and Pikachu run and see Striaton City, where Ash hopes to win a badge. Ash comes to the town and wonders what the Gym Leader and its Pokémon are like. Iris asks him does he know where the Gym is. Ash wishes he knew, so Iris tells he is a kid, as she gives an apple to Axew. A lad comes and sees Axew, deducing it is a perfect partner for the young lady. Iris thanks him, while the lad sees Pikachu and studies him up close, being amazed for seeing one. He thinks one must be lucky to have Pikachu, but Ash admits he is from Kanto. Ash and Iris introduce themselves to the lad, whose name is Cilan. Cilan tells he is a Pokémon Connoisseur, one that can describe a bond with the human and Pokémon, helping to form closer relationships. Ash asks what does Cilan think of himself and Pikachu, but Iris reminds him why they came here. Cilan leads Ash and Iris to the Gym.

Ash barges in, but sees it is a restaurant. The two lads, along with Cilan, ask Ash what would he like to drink or eat, but Ash yells out he wants a Gym Battle. Ash tries to leave, but Cilan, along with his brothers, Chili and Cress, accept his challenge, as all three are Gym Leaders. The news of battle makes the female guests overjoyed. Ash comes to the battlefield, while Iris and the female fans cheer for the brothers. The brothers tell Ash he can choose any of the brothers to fight against to win the Trio Badge. Cilan sends Pansage, Chili Pansear and Cress Panpour. The brothers want to know whom has Ash chosen, so Ash decides to battle all three of them. The brothers (as well as Iris) are surprised, but they accept Ash's proposal; as long as he won two battles, Ash will win the badge.

Chili chooses Pansear, while Ash sends Tepig, as it is its first battle. Tepig tackles Pansear, who falls down softly. Pansear uses Fire Punch, hitting Tepig. Pansear uses Flamethrower, countering Tepig's Flamethrower and hitting it. Pansear uses Dig, throwing Tepig away. Pansear digs again and hits Tepig, despite it running away. Pansear digs once more, but Tepig chews Pansear's tail. Pansear tries to shake it off, bashing it to the ground. Tepig swings Pansear and slams it to the ground. Tepig uses Ember on Pansear, then tackles it. Tepig comes to Ash, who praises him, as Pansear is defeated. Iris is pleased Ash won, while Chili compliments Ash and Tepig. Cress comes, as he is Ash's next challenger. Meanwhile, Team Rocket came to Striaton City, and go into an alley, where they are supposed to get more info on the next mission.

Ash uses Pikachu against Cress' Panpour. Pikachu starts with Quick Attack, though Panpour uses Double Team, causing Pikachu to hit an illusion and gets scratched. Panpour uses Water Gun, which Pikachu dodges. Pikachu goes to use Thunderbolt, but Panpour uses Water Gun on Pikachu's feet, stopping his attack. Panpour uses Water Gun, then scratches Pikachu, which pleases the fans, except Iris. Pikachu uses Volt Tackle, but trips over as Panpour uses Mud Sport. Using Water Gun, Panpour defeats Pikachu. Iris sees the next battle decides whether Ash gets the badge or not. In the sewers, Giovanni contacts Team Rocket. He tells them some of his sources claim that there is a lab that contains future energy, which can make dreams real. He orders them to take the Dream Mist, as they can make a powerful Pokémon army to conquer the world with this energy, for that is Team Rocket's goal. Team Rocket is pleased they can complete the goal, based on their success.

Cilan is pleased with Ash's bond with his Pokémon. Ash claims he will do his best to get the Trio Badge, sending Oshawott against Pansage. Oshawott gets scared of Pansage, so Ash and Pikachu push Oshawott to the field. Ash reminds Oshawott it did rescue Axew and Pikachu from Team Rocket, so Oshawott is ready to battle. Oshawott goes to tackle, but Pansage dodges and retaliates with Bullet Seed, hitting its lower bottom. Cilan tells that Oshawott and Ash should mature. Ash is angered, so Cilan gives him the proof: Pansage bites Oshawott's head, causing Oshawott to move randomly. Oshawott uses Water Gun, though misses Pansage. Oshawott repeats the attack and hits Oshawott in mid air. Cilan admits it was good, but they will never win, as Pansage uses Solarbeam and fires it on Oshawott, who is terrified by the attack.
