Ash and co. arrive at the next time over at the local Battle Club. Ash was happy to see Don George all the way from Accumula Town. He then explains that (like Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny) the Don George of Accumula Town is this Don George's older brother and there are other Don Georges that look like each other and they're all related. Ash checks out some battle stats and sees Trip in the database so Ash calls Trip to challenge him to a battle. Will Ash win this rematch? Or is it Trip who will win it?
