Episode PlotEdit

The show begins with a reporter reporting about the Wallace Cup, saying that many people around the world are anxious to watch the spectacular contest.

MayDawnMunchlax and Piplup are eating a giant cookie. Dawn looks quite worried while holding the cookie. Brock expresses his feelings to the cookie vendor, which is of course an attractive female, and ends up with a Poison Jab from Croagunk to the gut and being pulled away by Croagunk. May then jokingly says that Croagunk has taken over for her brother, Max, in keeping Brock in his place.

When Ash has finished registering for the Wallace Cup, Zoey appears with the intention of also entering the contest. She is surprised to see Ash entering as well, and she commented that to be a great Coordinator, one must know both the Pokémon Contests and Pokémon Battles.

Brock, Dawn and May come to greet her and Dawn introduces May to Zoey.

At night, Jessie is also planning to enter the Wallace Cup, and wants James and Meowth to help her. However, James and Meowth refused and told her that the last contests she won were all dependent on her efforts, not through their help. Jessie then looks blankly at them and her Wobbuffet comes out as comic relief.

The next day, the Wallace Cup has started. James makes a comment that many of the people in the audience are found to be wearing Wallace's hat.

Meanwhile, Dawn is frantically brushing her hair while Piplup stares at her. She is very nervous that her hair refusing to stay down will cause problems. May decides to help out by brushing her hair as Piplup gives her what is most obviously a speech to keep her going and fired up. We then see three of our known competitors in their chosen outfits: May wearing some an Arabian style ensemble, Dawn wearing her usual contest clothes, and Zoey sporting a smart dress.

The contest starts with a TV showing Wallace holding the Wallace Ribbon. The arena consists of a big pool of water. Water spurts out to the air, and a Milotic appears. The Milotic then splashes huge waves onto the stage immediately followed by Wallace appearing beautifully on stage. Wallace stretches out his left hand and thanks the audience for coming here to witness the contest. The audience cheers as more water spurts out around the stage.
