After defeating Skyla and earning the Jet Badge, Ash and Co. head out to Icirrus City. Along the way, they reunite with their old friend Stephan who happens to be entering a contest called the "Wishing Bell Festival". This festival is about going through series of obstacle courses along the way until the final event, one of them will win and get to ring the bell at the top of Celestial Tower and make a wish. As Ash and co. arrive at the festival, they soon find out that the contest is run by Mile, the previous Gym Leader and Skyla's grandfather. Of course what Stephan says its true it did happen to be an obstacle course with many challenges as trainers pair up with their Pokémon. Who will win this towering race? The event of the "Wishing Bell Festival" begins now!
There was a cosplaying portion of the contest where the characters and Pokémon dressed up as other characters and Pokémon:
Ash was Alder and Pikachu was Bouffalant.
Iris was Professor Juniper and Axew was Darumaka.
Stephan was Nurse Joy and Sawk was Audino.
Ricky was Officer Jenny and Elgyem was Herdier.
Cilan was Elesa and Pansage was Emolga.
An article of clothing similar to Brock's vest made its way into the clothes pile, probably as a tribute to Brock.
A Dawn hat & wig was in the clothes pile along with Team Rocket clothing. It was a reference that Dawn was coming to the Best Wishes Series.
"Who's that Pokemon?" Sawk (US)
