After the events from the last episode, the Sunglasses Krokorok has returned once again to challenge Ash to a battle bent on defeating his rival, Pikachu after he followed them for a long time from Nimbasa Town, Nimbasa City, Driftveil City, and Chargestone Cave. During a rival battle, Krokorok got blasted off while Pikachu is knocked for a loop and is seen rolling into the next town. Pikachu is then found by a little boy name Nick who apparently had no confidence in himself. Ash and co. run into Krokorok again and find Pikachu with Nick. He explains that his friend Glen started something every time always saying the word "Let's Battle!". Meanwhile Glen and Shaun are having a Pokémon battle just for fun which causes Glen to start a fight with Shaun when Blitzle dodged Patrat's Tackle. Can Ash help this budding young trainer how to battle right so he could battle his friends with his Pikachu? Yes. And will they receive help from an unexpected source?
In flashbacks, Krokorok watched Ash participate in the finals against Iris in the Don Battle Tournament in BW044: The Club Battle Finale: A Heroes Outcome!, tried to get on the train in BW053, saw Ash enter the Driftveil Gym in BW063 and was the one who thew the pen that belonged to Prof. Cedric Juniper that startled the Klingklang in BW065.
Krokorok almost did the "blasting off gag" in the beginning of the episode as Ash's Pikachu didn't blast off that far in their separate directions.
As Ash and co. move into the next town where his Pikachu got blown off in this direction, how did Krokorok managed to get back in the scene when he got blasted off that far away?
Poison Tail returns to the series.
Who's that Pokémon?: Krokorok (Japan) Scolipede (U.S.)
This is the second time Ash mentioned about Krokorok's type is. The first was BW063: Battling the King of the Mines! but the difference is, Ash told Pikachu that its a Ground-type, and now he said to Mick that its a Ground/Dark-type.
This is the 2nd time Ash caught a Pokémon that wears a sunglasses. First was the leader of the Squirtle Squad named Squirtle in IL012 Here Comes the Squirtle Squad. The difference is, there were no other Krokoroks like this one to follow that Ash's Pikachu encountered with.
Its true that Iris said that Krokorok's not one of Ash's Pokémon and happens to be a #1 rival for Pikachu but when Ash told him to come along with the group when he felt sad after he lost to Pikachu in the end, he's now one of Ash's as a new friend and catches him with his Poke Ball.
