Episode Plot

On their way to the site of Dawn's next contest, a Pokémon Trainer named Clayton and his Mr. Mime challenge Ash and Buizel to a battle. After losing easily, the two decide to train, which culminates with Buizel learning Ice Punch. Will Buizel be able to defeat the Barrier Pokémon in a rematch or will Ash and Buizel's hard training be for naught?


  • Professor Oak's Pokémon lecture: Charmeleon
  • Challenger!! is used as background music when Ash was teaching Buizel Ice Punch.
  • Music from Pikachu's PikaBoo, Jirachi Wish Maker, Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, and Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea is used as background music.
  • A live action version of Which One ~ Is It? is used as the ending song.
  • This episode surpasses the previous 31 episode gap where Ash does not earn a Gym Badge, which happened between The Grass Menagerie! & A Triple Fighting Chance!. This gap started with Sliding Into Seventh!.
  • The English title of this episode is a reference to the phrase "short and to the point".
  • With this episode, the Sinnoh League journey is now the longest running arc of the anime, surpassing the 158 episodes of the Johto League saga of the original series.
  • This is the last episode to be produced by Team Iguchi. OLM/OLM Digital handled the animation from DP160 until DP163.
