Episode Plot

After the events that occurred at the Battle Subway cause of Team Rocket, Ash and co. made their way back to Nimbasa City the next day. Now it's time for Ash to challenge the Nimbasa City Gym and they have a run into Bianca again (in her usual way). They soon realize the Gym is closed since the Gym Leader wasn't there and saw a note on the door. After they read it, it turns out the Gym Leader, Elesa, (the Super Model) was busy with the Unova fashion show, but after seeing a Pikachu in person up close, she introduces herself and accepts Ash and Bianca's Gym Challenge. After the fashion show, as Bianca's Gym Battle was about to begin, her father appears and wants to bring her home, but Bianca refuses to go back home. The battle goes under-way and Bianca lost. Will she continue on her journey or go home?
