Ash and his friends arrive at Valor Lakefront for the Grand Festival.
Pokémon: DP Sinnoh League Victors


Ash and his friends are practicing in a forest on their way to the Grand Festival. They come across what appears to be another Piplup and then Pikachu... and then, one by one, all of their other Pokémon seem to appear in pairs! It turns out that a duo of transforming Ditto are mimicking their Pokémon!

The two Ditto are with Trainer Marina, a feisty girl who is devoted to them. But when Ash challenges her to a battle, Marina shows her inexperience. Brock explains that she needs to learn the moves of the other Pokemon that her Ditto transform into if she wants to battle successfully. Marina breaks down and tells them that her feisty nature is really a cover-up: she's usually very nice and gentle.

Brock offers to teach her some of the strategy about different types of Pokemon in battle. Just then, Team Rocket decides to steal Marina's Ditto duo! An intense battle ensues and, with Brock's help and advice, Marina gets her Ditto back and Team Rocket is sent blasting off again!

As our heroes bid farewell to Marina, it appears that she has feelings for Brock, but he runs off to flirt with yet another girl! Marina decides being tough is still the way to go and our heroes finally arrive in Lake Valor where the Grand Festival will take place!


  • This is the first episode where Gible intentionally fires Draco Meteor on Piplup.


  • When Team Rocket throws the net on Ditto 1 and 2, they are still transformed into Sudowoodo, but in the next scene, they are ditto, despite not shown transforming.

Dub edits

  • In the original Japanese, the two Ditto speak human language when they've transformed into Meowth. This was changed in the dub, where Meowth still speaks human but the Ditto say "Meowth".
