Pokémon: BW Rival Destinies


Behold, for the time has come to win Ash's 7th gym badge after arriving in Icirrus City since his Krokorok is ready to battle in the Icirrus Gym. Ash faces off against Brycen, the movie star action hero turned Kung-Fu Master and Gym Leader of the Icirrus City Gym with his team full of Ice-types with and icy, frozen Pokémon Battlefield made of ice. Will Ash be able to beat this superb Ice-type Gym Leader?  And why are Iris and Axew in full winter gear? Because the Icirrus City Gym is an Ice-type Gym.





Ash: Grab some of those stones!

Ash's Krokorok: Kra-ko! Rok! (as he caught them in his hands).

Brycen: Now what!?

Iris: But why?

(Flashes back to the scene when Bianca's Emboar throws the stones back at Trip's Conkeldurr with Fling)

Cilan: It's what Bianca's Emboar did during the Clubsplosion.


  • That's the second time Ash return his Pokémon for now until the end of a gym battle. First was Tranquill in BW070: An Amazing Aerial Battle! when it evolved into Unfezant (Female Form) in the third and final round of the Mistralton City Gym battle against Skyla and her Swanna.
  • This marks the first time Scraggy's Focus Blast hits Vanillish since it failed everytime during the days of the Clubsplosion in BW072: The Clubsplosion Begins!, BW073: Searching for the Clubultimate!, BW074: A Clubsplosion of Excitement!, and BW075: Commanding the Clubsplosion Crown!, but in the second Icirrus City Gym battle it didn't hit on Cryogonal.
  • In the flashback, it is revealed that Ash learned something from Bianca when her Emboar caught the stones from the Stone Edge with her passion and plea during the final match-ups of Round 1 of the Clubsplosion. That is why he came up with a plan to get the stones to fly back, so Krokorok would be able to catch them.
  • The way Krokorok use the two stones as swords to hit through Beartic's Aerial Ace is similar when Georgia's Bisharp use Iron head to hit through Gale's Druddigon to make it faint from the attack.
  • As the episode ends, Iris and Axew looked a little worried because the destination to Opelucid City that Ash and co. are going to right now to get his eightth badge, is "actually" the Village of Dragons where she and Axew came from, which means Iris would have to tell the truth.
  • Who's that Pokémon?: Vanillish (US).
