The Whirl Cup is underway as princess Maya congradulates all the trainers who pass the preliminaries and explains the winner will also get a Mystic Water Pendant. Ash is excited and he swaps Kingler for Bayleef (Which might not make her happy). He goes up against Christopher and his all mighty Kingdra. Can he win using Totodile and who will Misty go up against?
This is the 100th episode that Ash had been on his Johto journey.
This episode is also part 7 of the 13 part Whirl Islands arc.
