Episode Plot

After a long time getting here, Ash and co. finally arrive at Mistralton City. Ash plans on challenging the gym leader but Mile, the previous Gym Leader, and grandfather of Skyla (the current Gym Leader), says that she's knows how the battle will turn out without having an actual battle which she develops an imaginary battle which she calls the "Air Battle" because every trainers around Unova flocked here to challenge her in an actual battle. So she became busier everytime and the time to pursue her flight had been taken away. So Cilan challenges her to an actual battle to prove that her "Air Battles" are wrong in which he never tolerate any kind of battle she does. Can Cilan do it?






  • "So, you can't know a battle without trying?  I say, not trying gives the same result, and that's why my air battles are the way I roll." - Skyla after Swanna beats Crustle.

Cilan: "Hnngh! I'm going to win this and prove that a Gym Leader has no right to make such a herrendous statement, with the help of my third Pokémon, Stunfisk!"

"Stun, Stun, Stun, Stunfisk!" - Stunfisk after being released from his PokéBall.

Cilan: "Use Thundershock!"

Stunfisk: "Fisk!"

"Since Swanna's a Water and Flying-Type, that Thundershock did lots of damage!" - Iris after Thundershock hits.

"Swanna's fine!" - Ash after Swanna shakes Thundershock off.

Skyla: Don't disappoint me.  If you're going to beat my Flying-Types, you'll have to learn a more powerful move like Thunderbolt at least.
