==Episode Plot==
 
==Episode Plot==
As the Gym Battle between Ash and Lenora is about to get under way, Ash observes that Lenora keeps a keen eye on all her potential challengers. She quickly judges Ash to be a no-nonsense Trainer, and they launch into a fierce two-on-two battle—it’s Lenora’s Watchog and Lillipup versus Ash’s Tepig and Oshawott.
+
As the heroes go with Lenora and Hawes for the Gym Battle, Ash wonders where the battlefield is. Hawes opens a door, revealing a section with more bookcases, where the finest books are stored. Cilan sees there is a section about Connoisseurs, as he wants to learn more about the craft. Lenora tells he could read something for the battle, as researchers and Gym Battle challengers are allowed to use this section. She points at a book, which Ash may want to read. Iris and Cilan think this is but part of a test Lenora gives to Ash. Ash yells out, seeing as he has no choice. He goes to reach the book, but it reveals a staircase, where the battlefield is.
   
Right off the bat, Lenora’s Lillipup catches Ash off guard by using Roar, which forces him to switch Tepig out of the battle and send out Oshawott. Lenora decides to switch too, bringing in her Watchog and immediately using Mean Look—which keeps Oshawott from switching out again!
+
Lenora admits she was testing Ash the moment he walked in here and admires his determination. When the challengers come to a Gym Battle, she points at the same book, but other challengers simply read a book they like or just thin enough to read, as it is a test so she can see what the challenger is going to be like. Iris wonders what kind of challenger Ash is, so Lenora tells it is one she anticipates to battle. They go down to the battlefield, so Ash wants to battle. Lenora asks if he wants to study her and her Pokémon, as she sends Watchog and Lillipup. Iris loves Lillipup, who is very friendly. Hawes tells that Lenora's Pokémon are very loyal and are used as museum security. Lillipup licks Ash, while Lenora explains Normal-type Pokémon have no limitations. Cilan sees that it is going to be an exciting battle.
   
Watchog proves to be a fierce opponent, and Oshawott is quickly defeated. When Ash sends out Tepig, Lenora switches back to Lillipup, and its Take Down attack ends the battle quickly. Tepig is defeated, and Lenora wins!
+
The fight is going to be a 2-on-2 battle. Lenora chooses Lillipup as her first Pokémon, calling Watchog back. Ash chooses his two Pokémon, asking Iris and Cilan to watch over Pikachu. Lenora sends Lillipup, who looks tough and ready for battle. Ash sends Tepig to the battle. Tepig goes to use Ember, but Lillipup roars, causing Tepig to be sent back and Oshawott comes out instead. Lenora tells Roar switches Pokémon when used. She calls Lillipup back and sends Watchog. Ash goes to call Oshawott back, but Watchog uses Mean Look, disabling that option. Ash sees he cannot use the combination he wanted, while Lenora senses Ash being off balance. Cilan knows Lenora is still testing Ash. Oshawott is not amused, as he expected to battle later. Oshawott uses Water Gun, but Watchog dodges and knocks Oshawott down.
   
Upset by his defeat, Ash vows to train hard and challenge the Nacrene Gym again, and Nurse Joy recommends that Ash put in some time at the Pokémon Battle Club. Don George says he is happy to help out, and we leave our heroes as Ash prepares to do some serious special training to prepare for his rematch against Lenora!
+
Watchog uses Thunderbolt, but Oshawott blocks it using his shell, impressing Lenora with that tactic. Oshawott goes to attack, so Lenora orders Low Kick, though Ash expected that. Oshawott jumps and uses Water Gun on Watchog. Oshawott uses Razor Shell, though Watchog spins and blocks it with its tail, causing Oshawott's shell to be knocked away. Watchog uses Thunderbolt, defeating Oshawott. Ash calls Oshawott back, seeing his strategy failed. Cilan thinks Lenora wanted Ash to show off his tactics, allowing her to knock the shell away and defeat Oshawott easily. Lenora calls Watchog back and sends Lillipup, while Ash sends Tepig back. Tepig goes to tackle Lillipup, who dodges and retaliates with Shadow Ball. Teoig uses Ember, though Lillipup uses Take Down, ignoring Ember and defeating Tepig.
   
Meanwhile, James has hacked into Nacrene museum's secruity allowing Jessie and Meowth to easily steal the meteorite piece and replace it with the dummy they had. Team Rocket depart once their mission has been completed.
+
Ash apologises to Tepig, knowing Tepig and Oshawott battled hard, but thinks they got a weak trainer, who has lot to learn. Ash thanks Lenora for the battle, who replies he can challenger any time. At the Pokémon Center, Ash is sad, as his strategies were foiled. Iris claims anyone could've been thrown off-guard with Lenora's tactics, while Cilan tells much can be learned from this defeat, as he needs to improve Oshawott's and Tepig's power and speed. Ash is annoyed, as he knows these facts, but now knwos Lenora's battling style and has hopes to win next time. Nurse Joy comes with Oshawott and Tepig, who are ready for more battles. Ash is glad, while Nurse Joy recommends the Pokémon Battle Club. Iris, Cilan and Joy recommend Ash to visit the club, as Don George may give tips on defeating Lenora.
   
==Errors==
+
As James disarmed the security system, Jessie and Meowth sneak into the museum. Meowth takes the case off, as Jessie takes the real meteorite into the container and places the fake one in the display. Jessie and Meowth go to James and ride off in a van. At the Pokémon Battle Club, Don George welcomes the heroes. Ash explains the Gym Battle with Lenora. Don George tells Mean Look and Roar are the reason Lenora uses both Pokémon. Cilan tells if Lenora's speed is matched, her Pokémon may be defeated. Don George responds they came to the right place, so Ash promises he will do whatever it takes. Don George admits the special training is not for the faint of heart. Ash understands that, so Don George opens the door.

==Trivia==
*Ash forgot what Mean Look does, even though it was used against his Cyndaquil by Morty's Haunter in "From Ghost to Ghost", against his Charizard by Brandon's Dusclops in "Gathering the Gang of Four" and against his Donphan by Conway's Dusknoir in "Working on a Right Move".
+
*Like in "[[JE042: A Goldenrod Opportunity|A Goldenrod Opportunity]]", aside from Pikachu, Ash used the Fire and Water-type Starter Pokémon in the battle, Totodile and Cyndaquil. However, Whitney defeated him by foiling his strategies, like Lenora did.
*This is the second time Ash use Oshawott and Tepig in a gym battle since it's first in [[BW005: Triple Leaders, Team Threats]], to [[BW006: Dreams by the Yard Full!]]. Although they both lose.
 
*This is the third time Ash lost to a Normal-Type Gym Leader. The first was [[Whitney]] in [[JE042: A Goldenrod Opportunity]] and the second was to [[Norman]] in [[AG003: There's no Place Like Hoenn]] (even though it was an unofficial battle).

The Battle According to Lenora! (Japanese: シッポウジム戦!VSジムリーダー・アロエ!! Nacrene Gym Battle! VS Gym Leader Lenora!!) is the 14th episode of Pokémon: Black & White.

Episode PlotEdit

As the heroes go with Lenora and Hawes for the Gym Battle, Ash wonders where the battlefield is. Hawes opens a door, revealing a section with more bookcases, where the finest books are stored. Cilan sees there is a section about Connoisseurs, as he wants to learn more about the craft. Lenora tells he could read something for the battle, as researchers and Gym Battle challengers are allowed to use this section. She points at a book, which Ash may want to read. Iris and Cilan think this is but part of a test Lenora gives to Ash. Ash yells out, seeing as he has no choice. He goes to reach the book, but it reveals a staircase, where the battlefield is.

Lenora admits she was testing Ash the moment he walked in here and admires his determination. When the challengers come to a Gym Battle, she points at the same book, but other challengers simply read a book they like or just thin enough to read, as it is a test so she can see what the challenger is going to be like. Iris wonders what kind of challenger Ash is, so Lenora tells it is one she anticipates to battle. They go down to the battlefield, so Ash wants to battle. Lenora asks if he wants to study her and her Pokémon, as she sends Watchog and Lillipup. Iris loves Lillipup, who is very friendly. Hawes tells that Lenora's Pokémon are very loyal and are used as museum security. Lillipup licks Ash, while Lenora explains Normal-type Pokémon have no limitations. Cilan sees that it is going to be an exciting battle.

The fight is going to be a 2-on-2 battle. Lenora chooses Lillipup as her first Pokémon, calling Watchog back. Ash chooses his two Pokémon, asking Iris and Cilan to watch over Pikachu. Lenora sends Lillipup, who looks tough and ready for battle. Ash sends Tepig to the battle. Tepig goes to use Ember, but Lillipup roars, causing Tepig to be sent back and Oshawott comes out instead. Lenora tells Roar switches Pokémon when used. She calls Lillipup back and sends Watchog. Ash goes to call Oshawott back, but Watchog uses Mean Look, disabling that option. Ash sees he cannot use the combination he wanted, while Lenora senses Ash being off balance. Cilan knows Lenora is still testing Ash. Oshawott is not amused, as he expected to battle later. Oshawott uses Water Gun, but Watchog dodges and knocks Oshawott down.

Watchog uses Thunderbolt, but Oshawott blocks it using his shell, impressing Lenora with that tactic. Oshawott goes to attack, so Lenora orders Low Kick, though Ash expected that. Oshawott jumps and uses Water Gun on Watchog. Oshawott uses Razor Shell, though Watchog spins and blocks it with its tail, causing Oshawott's shell to be knocked away. Watchog uses Thunderbolt, defeating Oshawott. Ash calls Oshawott back, seeing his strategy failed. Cilan thinks Lenora wanted Ash to show off his tactics, allowing her to knock the shell away and defeat Oshawott easily. Lenora calls Watchog back and sends Lillipup, while Ash sends Tepig back. Tepig goes to tackle Lillipup, who dodges and retaliates with Shadow Ball. Teoig uses Ember, though Lillipup uses Take Down, ignoring Ember and defeating Tepig.

Ash apologises to Tepig, knowing Tepig and Oshawott battled hard, but thinks they got a weak trainer, who has lot to learn. Ash thanks Lenora for the battle, who replies he can challenger any time. At the Pokémon Center, Ash is sad, as his strategies were foiled.

Ash is annoyed, as he knows these facts, but now knwos Lenora's battling style and has hopes to win next time. Nurse Joy comes with Oshawott and Tepig, who are ready for more battles. Ash is glad, while Nurse Joy recommends the Pokémon Battle Club. Iris, Cilan and Joy recommend Ash to visit the club, as Don George may give tips on defeating Lenora.

As James disarmed the security system, Jessie and Meowth sneak into the museum. Meowth takes the case off, as Jessie takes the real meteorite into the container and places the fake one in the display. Jessie and Meowth go to James and ride off in a van. At the Pokémon Battle Club, Don George welcomes the heroes. Ash explains the Gym Battle with Lenora. Don George tells Mean Look and Roar are the reason Lenora uses both Pokémon. Cilan tells if Lenora's speed is matched, her Pokémon may be defeated. Don George responds they came to the right place, so Ash promises he will do whatever it takes. Don George admits the special training is not for the faint of heart. Ash understands that, so Don George opens the door.
