Pokémon: BW Rival Destinies


The battle between Ash and Roxie continues. If it isn't her super speedy Koffing that gives Ash trouble, it's her super strong Scolipede that's even worse, as it defeats his Leavanny. But when Pignite defeats Scolipede, her Garbodor comes out and defeats Pignite. With Ash narrowed down to his rarely used powerhouse Palpitoad and his companion and ace Pikachu, will Ash be able to win his final badge or are his hopes of entering the Unova League vanish right before his eyes? Will soon find out as the Virbank Gym 6 on 3 battle continues!




  • Like Roxie, her Gym Badge, the Toxic Badge, also made its debut before Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2 were released in Japan.
  • This is the second time Ash looked up Garbodor on the Pokédex. First was BW057: Scraggy and the Demanding Gothita! when Katharine's Gothita disturbed a wild one with Double Slap due to its foul breath while hanging out with Ash's Scraggy in the woods at the dark of night.
  • As Ash says he wins the Toxic Badge, only Pikachu jumps up in the air which means 2:5 of his Pokémon got poisoned and defeated. Which is: Boldore, and Pignite got defeated without being poisoned, and Unfezant, Leavanny, and Palpitoad got poisoned and defeated. However, in previous episodes, Ash's defeated Pokemon jumped alongside Pikachu in the air when Ash says what badge he won.
  • The soundtrack opening of Arceus and the Jewel of Life was used again for the fifth time when Ash brings out Palpitoad into battle since BW064,BW065,BW069, and BW080.
  • "Next Time... A New Beginning!" is put in the end of this episode instead of "To Be Continued" because Ash's journey in Eastern Unova begins in the next episode.
  • Who's that Pokemon?: Garbodor (US).


  • In a scene where Roxie is about to bring out her Garbodor, her hair is missing.
