Pokémon: DP Sinnoh League Victors


As the journey to Daybreak Town and Dawn’s next Pokémon Contest continues, our Ash and friends are passing through the forest when they are suddenly attacked by a wild Magnezone! They later talk to Officer Jenny, who informs them that the wild Magnezone, as well as a wild Metagross, are attacking a nearby town, and no one seems to know why. Fearing for the town’s survival, Pikachu and Pachirisu start shooting Electric attacks into the sky in an attempt to lure the two wild Pokémon back up to the mountain.

Later on, Ash and friends run into a patrolman named Crispin, who tells the group that the two wild Pokémon always battle in a basin in the mountain. They battle there in order to release the magnetic charges that the mountain produces from time to time, but the basin has mysteriously been flooded. As they figure out how to remedy the situation, Team Rocket decides to get the two wild Pokémon to join them...with the help of some negotiating by Meowth. But their plan fails over and over, and they are sent blasting off again.With the help of Buizel and Happiny, the water in the basin is frozen and then lifted up and into a deep crevasse. The basin is ready for Magnezone and Metagross to battle happily once again!




  • Professor Oak's Pokémon lecture: Roserade
  • High Touch! 2009 is replaced by The Greatest - Everyday! as the opening theme, but it can still be heard at the end of previews for the next episodes.
  • This is the first Japanese episode of the 2010s.
  • Music from Pokémon Heroes, Gotta Dance, and Destiny Deoxys is used during this episode.
  • This is the first episode where Gible used Draco Meteor and Piplup didn't faint after getting hit by it.


  • In one scene, Ash is seen with two Pikachu at the same time: one on his shoulder and one standing next to him. In the same shot, Ash has his feet overlapped by the sidewalk.
  • Gible's eyes were completely black while he was biting Ash's head.
  • The land around the basin is gray, but when Gible fires Draco Meteor, it is briefly seen as a wasteland.
  • In the scene after Croagunk uses Brick Break to smash the rock, Dawn's neck is colored the same black as her outfit (which doesn't have a collar) and she's missing her scarf.
