Ash and co. finally arrive at Jubilife City, the first stop in Dawn's quest to be a great coordinator. It is there that she learns of a new fad. It's hip, it's hot, it's happenin' it's the Pokétch and, like all girls, Dawn has to have one. She gets one from three clowns only to find out from a smart little boy named Landis that it is a fake. Will she be able to get a real Pokémontch, or will she be a trend loser?
Marina, the female choice from Pokémon Crystal who appeared in The Legend of Thunder, appears on a Pokétch advertisement in a different outfit.
