Episode Plot

As Ash and co. are on the home stretch to Icirrus City which is over the mountain, they saw those boulders are about to fall on them as they try to run. From here on, they encounter a man name Brycen after he and Beartic save them, in which Cilan knows him in his dream that he's a movie-star action hero featuring several flims. Which is "Enter the Beartic", "The Way of the Beartic", and "Fists of Ice". Apparently, he had to go through rigorous training with Beartic to get to where he is today. So Ash and his Krokorok must prove to be worthy by training with them before they can be like them, but after the training, clouds came in gray covering the whole sky, and lightning flashed. A Volcarona appears and is being pursued by a Pokemon Hunter name Rinzo and his Jellicent in which Brycen calls it "The Guardian of the Mountain". Can Ash and co. be able to help and free Volcarona? Yes. And why is Iris keeping her distance from Brycen? She's scared of a person who used Ice-type Pokemon.


Human Characters

  • Brycen


  • Jellicent (Male form)
  • Jellicent (Female form)
  • Volcarona


Brycen: You there. Are you alright?

Ash: Yeah.

Brycen: Well I'm glad to here that.

Brycen's Beartic: Bear!

Iris: AHHHH! I'm not good with Ice-types. Even saving us.

Cilan: You couldn't be."YOU ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRE!"

Iris: You know who he is Cilan?

Ash: Okay, let's nail this. (while he and Krokorok gets ready to punch the rock)

Ash's Krokorok: KROK! (punched the rock) "KRAA! KRAK-OR-ROK! KRAK-OR-ROK! KRAA-KA!" (When his fist are red).

Ash: (As he pushed Krokorok towards the waterfall) It's just training, so don't be scared! Uh? (then fell) AHHHHHHHHHHHH! (down the waterfall).


  • This is the first appearance of a Pokémon hunter since Hunter J's presumbed death.
  • Ash and Krokorok appears to interact with one another even more in this episode when they go through rigorous training with Brycen and Beartic. Even though they did some training together once while helping Nick learn how Pokemon Battles work BW067: Battling the Bully!.
  • This is the second time Ash looked up a male Floating Pokemon on the Pokedex. First was Frillish (Male Form) in BW010: A Rival Battle for Club Champ! when Trip owns one. And now he looked up Jellicent (Male Form).
  • When Rinzo brings out a Jellicent (Female Form) even though his Jellicent (Male Form) got almost defeated in a Pokemon Battle, that would be cheating consider that 2 Pokemons against one. But when Brycen and his Beartic are up in a Pokemon Battle against them, he didn't mind the rules.
  • When two of those Jellicents use Double Hydro Pump against Beartic's Brine, you can see the difference of power, which means Brine is better than two Hydro Pumps combined.
  • That's the second time a Pokemon Poacher gets defeated a got himself put in a cage. First was a Pokemon Black Market Poacher and his Glalie in "The Drifting Snorunt".
  • Brycen wouldn't reveal himself that he's the Icirrus Gym Leader until the end of the episode.
  • That's the fourth time in a row when the soundtrack title theme of Arceus and the Jewel of Life is used in this episode even though you hear it in the end. First was BW064. Second was BW065. And third was BW069.
  • Who's that Pokémon: Volcarona (US).
