Episode Plot

In this episode Ash has his first gym battles with Chili, Cress and Cilan.

Ash enters Striaton City with Iris. He begins to wonder where the Pokémon Gym is located. At that time, a green haired 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 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 first meets Chili in battle and sends out 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.

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.
