Episode Plot

While on their way to Driftveil City, Ash and co. encounter a Gothita and its trainer, a young girl by the name of Katharine. It appears that this Gothita has taken a liking to Ash's Scraggy due to its staring and tell Katharine to have a Pokemon battle with Ash with Mandibuzz. If she wins, she'll have Scraggy for her Gothita. Will Ash agree to battle her for it?


Pokémon Debuts


  • Since Katharine's Gothita had feelings for Ash's Scraggy, Gothita must be female.
  • This is the second time Ash looked up Gothita on the Pokedex since BW038: Where Did You Go, Audino?.
  • This is the second time Ash looked up Mandibuzz on the Pokedex. First was a wild one in BW045: Meowth's Scrafty Tactics! which it took Scrafty's den away because it did a bad thing to her friend without permission for the grub.
  • This is the second time Ash battled a Mandibuzz. First was Scraggy battling a wild one which it took Scrafty's den and wins with a newly learned Hi Jump Kick which Scrafty teaches him a new move, and now Ash's Tepig is battling Katharine's.
  • This is the third time Ash looked up on Pokemon on Pokedex that are wild and aggressive. First was Simisear in BW028: Emolga and the New Volt Switch!. Second was Gigalith in BW054: Ash Versus The Champion! smashing everything in the festival causing disaster and chaos in Nimbasa City, and now he looked up on Garbodor, the evolved form of Trubbish which it appeared first in BW012: Here Comes the Trubbish Squad!.
  • Professor Oak's Live Caster: Purrloin
  • Four words of this episodes dub title name match the translation of the Japanese title.
  • Kerry Williams returns to the Pokémon series to voice Katharine her first role in Pokémon since "Judgmemt Day!".
  • Who's that Pokémon?: Mandibuzz (US)
