Still on the way to Nimbasa City, Ash and co decided to stop for a rest and have lunch. While Cilan was cooking lunch, Ash and Iris was swinging from vine to vine and leaves from the tree fell into Cilan's stew/soup. Cilan said he will make the lunch again so he told Ash and Iris to stay away and play somewhere else. After they left Ash felt bad for Cilan. Iris said it's all Ash's fault for having the idea to swing from vine to vine. Ash replied saying I was going to prove your not the only one who is good at swinging from vine to vine. Then Iris said we will have a challenge, who can swing from vine to vine from here to the Oran berry tree. Ash couldn't see the Oran tree at first but then he started to see it. He accepted it. When they started Iris was winning and she shouted back to Ash it's sort of obvious who is better at this. While Ash was swinging with lots of concentration he slipped and Iris saw him not behind her so she went to look for him.
Ash accidentally encounter Trip when he tries to capture a Palpitoad. Ash got hit in the head with Trip's poke ball. As always Trip tells Ash that humans don't get hit by poke balls and refers to hugs ending line it's basic stuff. When Iris saw Ash see said there you are. When she looks to her left she sees Trip's new Pokemon Vanillite. Iris is scared of ice type Pokemon's. As Trip leaves, Ash asks what has got into her. She answers back dragon type Pokemons have a disadvantage to ice type Pokemons. Then she says something about the village of dragons. When Trip hears that he comes back with his camera and takes pictures of her and Axew because that's his first time seeing a person from the village of dragons.
While they are talking back at Cilan, he is finished making lunch so he calls Ash and Iris but he can't hear a reply so then he decides to bake a cake with a berry while he was waiting. Trip asks Iris to have a battle with him because he wants to battle a dragon type Pokemon. But then Ash interrupts and says he wants to battle Trip instead but Trip rejects him. Iris thinks of Excadrill and Emolga but then she says she is not in top form today. Trip says that's no good. So he decides to leave. Iris says he's a kid just because he got rejected by her. Trip and Ash then have a battle and Trip decides to use his Vanillite, Servine and Timburr. While Ash use Tepig, Oshawott and Snivy. Who will win this time? And why is Iris afraid of Trip's Vanillite?
Iris is revealed to have a fear of Ice-type Pokémon, the same way Misty has a fear of Bug-Type Pokémon.
Ash told Oshawott to use "Shell Blade", just like did it in BW031.
