Episode Plot

The roar of the crowd, the sensation of competition, the smell of hot dogs. These are the things that best describe a major sporting event. This is not it. After arriving at Toaru Town, Ash and co. enter the Clubsplosion Tournament, sponsored by the Pokémon Battle Club hosted by Don George where the winner will feel the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. It's looking like the Don Battle Tournament all over again in Nimbasa Town as Bianca, Georgia, Burgundy and Trip arrive on the scene as well with some brand new surprises for Ash and co., like Trip's Gurdurr evolving into Conkeldurr. The prize this time its a year's supply of six Pokémon Boost Vitamin Drinks which include HP Up, Protein, Iron, Zinc, Carbos and Calcium. What could be in store for Ash, Iris, Cilan, Stephan and all of their friends and rivals? Will soon find out as Round 1 of the Clubsplosion Match Ups begins now!
