The episode begins with our heroes walking the path to Vertress City, when they finally arrive. They arrive at the festival and Ash talks about who he could be fighting first round. When suddenly a familiar,"Out of My Way, Out of My Way!", is heard. Bianca comes a running, and knocks Ash into the always near fountain. After apologies, Stephan arrives and for the first time ever Ash says Stephan's name right. Stephan freaks out and then Iris says his name right too. Virgil arrives in his brothers plane. The group then goes to registration, and all register. They then go to the hotel and find a tent. A Riolu then walks out and they know who it is. They then say hi to Cameron who says he was here for three days. Iris asks why not get a hotel after registration. Cameron asks if that is a new Pokémon. Nurse Joy then announces that registration is over. Ash and Cameron rush to the Pokémon Center and Nurse Joy gives him a break. Now that everyone was registered, they all head off to their resting place.

The heroes speed up, finally reaching Vertress City. The heroes admit a long way of adventures led them here. Seeing many trainers, Ash decides to beat them all. First, he goes to register for the League. The heroes admire the stadium, having several battle fields. Suddenly, Bianca bumps into Ash, causing him to fall into a nearest fountain. Bianca apologises, for she was too excited to see them all. She admits she almost couldn't enter due to the lack of badges, but worked quite hard to obtain all eight. She asks how Ash is doing, who reminds her she pushed him into the water. Stephan comes and Ash greets him. Stephan thinks he got his name wrong, but realizes Ash managed to pronounce it correctly this time. Iris thinks they have been saying this all the time.
   
Ash later that night can't sleep so he looks out at the window and sees that shining lights and stadium and thinks back to all the Gym Leaders he beat to get this far. Iris then tells Ash to go back to bed. Next morning the group gathers at the stadium to find out who their battling where Freddy Martian parodies the Queen by getting to the league in a parachute. He then announces that the battle line up on the board. Ash finds out that he is battling Trip. Bianca is battling Michael and his Watchog. Virgil is battling Ultimo and his Crustle. Cameron is facing Kenō and his Eelektross, and Stephan is battling Radley and his Braviary. The battles begin Stephan manages to easily defeat Radley and Braviary with his Zebstrika. Bianca and Emboar, Cameron and Ferrothorn, Virgil and Vaporeon battles are left undecided.

Stephan is confident, for he also has been training hard for the League. Suddenly, the heroes see Davy is riding the helicopter with Virgil, who came to compete in the League. Virgil thanks Davy and promises to win the League, as his brother and father will be watching the League in action. The heroes greet Virgil, who had to drop off an injured Pokémon at the Center first. The heroes introduce Stephan and Bianca to Virgil, a member of the Pokémon Rescue Squad, who will enter the League with his Team Eevee. They go to register and meet up with Trip, who asks of Ash not to lose before their battle. Iris and Cilan see Trip has changed a lot. Ash shows Nurse Joy the Gym Badges and scans the Pokédex. Nurse Joy confirms he is registered for the League. Bianca, Stephan and Virgil also register.
   
Meanwhile Ash is Facing Trip. Trip sends out Serperior and Ash chooses Pikachu over Pignite. Pikachu starts of with a Quick Attack but is dodged at the last second by Serperior at the last second. Pikachu tries an Iron Tail bu is countered by a Dragon Tail attack sending Pikachu into the boundary wall, half-knocked out and Ash at a dead end, Leaving the everyone in suspense, ending it with a cliffhanger.

Stephan already plans to enter the sauna first. Virgil also wants to do that, but Iris thinks they sound old. On their way to the hotel, they encounter Cameron and Riolu. Cameron confirms he has won all eight badges, but Ash asks did he register. Cameron wonders what that is. Suddenly, Nurse Joy tells (through the intercom) the registration is over. Ash is shocked and drags Cameron to register, otherwise he cannot compete. They rush and beg Nurse Joy to register Cameron, who makes an exception. Ash and Cameron meet up with others, telling Cameron is ready for the League. Ash admits he is not surprised Cameron did not register, due to his behavior. Bianca, Stephan and Virgil are glad he is also in. Cameron cannot recall and pulls his headband and releases it. He remembers now and lets Ash know he brought "the secret weapon".

He and Pikachu watch the League from afar and remember the Gym Leaders they fought against. Ash and Pikachu decide to win the League, for they proved the Gym Leaders how tough they are for the League. Iris tells him to go to sleep, else he could have lack of sleep for tomorrow.

Since both sides can use only one Pokémon, Iris and Cilan wonder which Pokémon Trip will use. Trip sends Serperior, so Iris and Cilan realize Trip is counting on speed to win this. Ash sends Pikachu. Iris is surprised, as Serperior is endurant against electric-type attacks, but Cilan is certain Ash knows that and has a strategy. Pikachu starts with Quick Attack, but Serperior dodges.

Episode PlotEdit

The heroes speed up, finally reaching Vertress City. The heroes admit a long way of adventures led them here. Seeing many trainers, Ash decides to beat them all. First, he goes to register for the League. The heroes admire the stadium, having several battle fields. Suddenly, Bianca bumps into Ash, causing him to fall into a nearest fountain. Bianca apologises, for she was too excited to see them all. She admits she almost couldn't enter due to the lack of badges, but worked quite hard to obtain all eight. She asks how Ash is doing, who reminds her she pushed him into the water. Stephan comes and Ash greets him. Stephan thinks he got his name wrong, but realizes Ash managed to pronounce it correctly this time. Iris thinks they have been saying this all the time.

Stephan is confident, for he also has been training hard for the League. Suddenly, the heroes see Davy is riding the helicopter with Virgil, who came to compete in the League. Virgil thanks Davy and promises to win the League, as his brother and father will be watching the League in action. The heroes greet Virgil, who had to drop off an injured Pokémon at the Center first. The heroes introduce Stephan and Bianca to Virgil, a member of the Pokémon Rescue Squad, who will enter the League with his Team Eevee. They go to register and meet up with Trip, who asks of Ash not to lose before their battle. Iris and Cilan see Trip has changed a lot. Ash shows Nurse Joy the Gym Badges and scans the Pokédex. Nurse Joy confirms he is registered for the League. Bianca, Stephan and Virgil also register.

Stephan already plans to enter the sauna first. Virgil also wants to do that, but Iris thinks they sound old. On their way to the hotel, they encounter Cameron and Riolu. Cameron confirms he has won all eight badges, but Ash asks did he register. Cameron wonders what that is. Suddenly, Nurse Joy tells (through the intercom) the registration is over.
