Pokémon: BW Rival Destinies


Ash and co. finally arrive at the Virbank City port, but before he could challenge the Gym Leader, he, Iris and Cilan run into Luke and Zorua again (in a surprise way when Zorua impersonates Ash's personality). Apparently he's planning on entering the Pokéstar Studios Movie contest and wants Ash, Iris and Cilan to help making the greatest film about the Unova Defense Force against his rival film director Jules and his Krookodile. Will Luke's newest film be a smash hit? And why is Team Rocket after the mysterious Meloetta since it starts to follow Ash to the Virbank City Gym in the end?




  • The Mecha-Tyranitar from the upcoming Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2 makes its appearance in the anime.
  • It's been 40 episodes earlier since Ash and co. last saw Luke.
  • In the flashback scene, it is revealed that The Legend of the Pokemon Knight got voted for top honors in the film festival thanks to Ash and co.
  • Aside from Pikachu and Meowth, this episode marks the very first appearance of a Pokémon from a previous generation, in this case, Generation II.
  • Who's That Pokémon?: Krookodile (US)
  • At the beginning of Luke's film, Zorua appears and roars. This is a parody of the beginning of all M-G-M Studios movies, when a lion appears and roars twice.
