Pokémon: DP Galactic Battles


The time has come. Ash faces off against Byron in a 3-on-3 gym battle. Hopefully he'll fair better with Byron than he did with his Gym Leader son: Roark back in the Oreburgh City Gym. For now, Ash has a score to settle with a whole team of Steel-type Pokemons including Byron's main pokemon: Bastiodon. Will Ash be able to burn away at Byron's Steel-type defenses, or will Ash get his type strategy rusty during the battle?




  • Ash's win against Byron is similar to his win over Jasmine in many ways.
    • Jasmine's badge (Mineral Badge) was the sixth badge Ash obtained in Johto while Byron's badge (Mine Badge) was the sixth badge Ash obtained in Sinnoh.
    • Both Byron and Jasmine were defeated in the 108th episode of their region.
    • Both Gym Leaders specialize in Steel-type Pokemon and also use a Steelix.
    • Byron's Steelix was defeated by Ash's Chimchar (the Sinnoh Fire-type starter) while Jasmine's Steelix was defeated by Ash's Cyndaquil (the Johto Fire-type starter)
  • This episode marks Gliscor's first Gym Battle.


  • In multiple scenes, the stripes on Byron's pants are colored gray instead of yellow.
  • Bastiodon's Iron Defense protected it against Chimchar's Flamethrower. However, this could not work as Iron Defense only raises Defense, not Special Defense.
