Episode Plot

Ash and co. arrive on Kumquat Island where Ash hopes to win his final badge. As a woman on the beach advertizes her hotel she notices Ash, rushes up to him and nearly hugs the life out of him because she thought Ash was her son. After the confusion was cleared up Team Rocket appears in a giant robotic Rhydon. The woman calls out her Alakazam and is revealed to be Luana, the Kumquat Gym Leader. After Team Rocket was defeated (again), Ash challenged Luana to a gym battle and she accepted his challenge. The rules were to use two Pokémon at the same time. Can Ash adjust to this new style of battling and win his final badge?
