{{Episode
It's the semifinal round of the Wallace Cup and Dawn's Piplup is battling hard against Kyle's Crawdunt. Dawn breaks out one of her trusted strategies--using Whirlpool to envelop an opponent--but that doesn't do much against Crawdunt who hits back with Surf. However, Kyle and his Crawdunt get a big surprise when Piplup's spinning Bide move knocks Crawdunt out of the competition. Dawn's creative strategy earns her a spot in the finals and  an awkward post-match interview with Jessie, now in full TV star mode as Jessadia.

The other semifinal match pits May against Zoey and both Coordinators have opted to use their reliable Pokemon: May uses Beautifly while Zoey goes with Glameow. Zoey looks like she's on her way to an early lead with some gorgeous moves by Glameow, but May has plenty of Contest experience on her side. Beautifly catches Glameow by surprise with its new move, Aerial Ace, and May is declared the winner when time runs out.

==Episode Plot==
  +
Piplup faces Crawdaunt. So, it goes in the pool, along with Crawdaunt. Piplup engulfs Crawdaunt via Whirlpool. Crawdaunt surfs, hitting Piplup. Crawdaunt uses Dark Pulse, though Piplup spins and dodges, then uses Bide to collect the energy and fires, cancelling Crawdaunt's Crabhammer. Dawn lost less points and she moves to the next stage, the finals. The heroes are impressed, though now Zoey and May have a battle. Jessie reports Dawn, though Jessie focuses upon herself than Dawn.
   
After seeing May's performance, Dawn feels a little nervous going into the final battle. She sticks with Piplup while May brings in Glaceon, making its first Contest battle appearance since it evolved from Eevee. Once again, Dawn is banking on a strong Whirlpool and creative spinning movesto help her win; Glaceon is a tough opponent and Dawn realizes she can't hold back against an opponent as tough as May. It's a close battle to the finish, but when time runs out, Dawn is the winner! As May returns to Johto and Zoey resumes her own journey, Dawn happily rejoins her friends on the road to Pastoria City and Ash's next Gym Battle.
+
Now, Zoey and May have the battle. May sends Beautifly and Zoey her Glameow. Beautifly starts with Silver Wind. Glameow jumps, so Beautifly uses Psychic, though Glameow evades and uses Shadow Claw. Still, Beautifly manages to dodge, though Glameow uses the move on the water, surrounding Beautifly with water. Glameow launches a Shockwave, hitting Beautifly. Glameow uses Iron Tail, though Beautifly launches Silver Wind on water so she can protect herself, canceling Glameow's attack and getting hit by Psychic. Beautifly uses Morning Sun, then follows with Aerial Ace, colliding with Shadow Claw. Time is up, but with a slight difference, May wins.

Now, May and Dawn have to face each other in finals. Dawn is worried that May defeated Zoey, but Dawn will not back dawn. Zoey thinks this true, while Dawn admires the performance she gave. Zoey admits she learned a lot from May today and warns Dawn to be careful when facing her. Dawn admits to May she fells a bit nervous, but she and Piplup will not back down. So, May proposes they give the audience the best performance. They go to the stage, with their families and rivals watching this battle. Dawn sends Piplup and May her Glaceon.
  +
  +
Piplup starts with BubbleBeam, but misses and gets hit by Secret Power and causes Piplup to be paralyzed. Glaceon uses Ice Shard, hitting Piplup and forcing it to go into the water. Moment later, Piplup emerges and uses Whirlpool, though Glaceon uses Mirror Coat, reflecting the damage to Piplup, stronger than before. Piplup uses BubbleBeam, hitting Glaceon. Glaceon retaliates with Shadow Ball, but Piplup spins and evades. Glaceon charges and uses Secret Power, hitting Piplup before it can dodge, though Piplup spins and zeroes the damage.
  +
  +
Glaceon uses Shadow Ball, but gets negated and hit by BubbleBeam. Piplup goes to peck, but misses and almost gets hit by Ice Shard if it weren't for Whirlpool. Piplup rides the Whirlpool and jumps away from Shadow Ball. May cannot see Piplup, as it emerges, hitting Glaceon once more. Glaceon uses Shadow Ball and Piplup counters it with Peck, but this dims the vision and gets hit by Ice Shard. Dawn and May know everything depends on these last seconds and will have to attack with their best moves. Piplup uses Whirlpool, but it gets reflected by Mirror Coat, though Glaceon was unable to control it, so both it and Piplup receive damage.
  +
  +
Time is up, and the winner of the Cup is... Dawn! May congratulates Dawn, who is really happy for this victory. Later, Wallace remarks Dawn's abilities and thanks her for such a fine performance, giving her the Aqua Ribbon. Wallace turns to the viewers and wants some other year to make the Cup here. Jessie is very determined and promises to get a new Pokémon for a new ribbon. Later, May wishes Dawn and Zoey good luck in future Contests and admits she was looking forward for Brock's cooking. Ash wishes May luck as well, in Johto Contests. May wishes him luck in the Sinnoh League and she departs away, waving goodbye to her friends.
