Pokémon: DP Galactic Battles


Arriving at Dawn's home in Twinleaf Town, Dawn's mother Johanna is in the process of planning the Twinleaf Festival along with Izzy and Cara. Unfortunately, those two can't seem to make up their minds on any part of their work. This is keeping Dawn's mother very busy which also seems to be keeping Dawn from the Contest Battle challenge against her mother.

So while Dawn plans her battle strategy and Ash and Pikachu take a walk to get to know Twinleaf Town better, Johanna, Izzy and Cara take care of the festival's details. This finally leads to a two-on-two battle between Dawn and her mom, Johanna! Dawn looks quite impressive at the outset, but Johanna's Top Coordinator experience shines through as Dawn, Piplup and Pachirisu are eventually defeated.

Feeling inspired after Dawn and Johanna's battle, our heroes happily anticipate the next few days' events as they excitedly watch the Twinleaf Festival begin to take shape!
