Going, Going, Yawn (Japanese: ヒートバッジ！燃えるバトルでゲットだぜ!! Heat Badge! Win the Blazing Battle!) is the 56th episode of the Advanced Generation series, and the 330th episode of the Pokémon anime. It was first broadcast in Japan on December 18, 2003 and in the United States on November 20, 2004.
Ash and Flannery begin their long-awaited Gym battle, with Ash beginning with Corphish and Flannery starting with her newly-evolved Magcargo. With Flannery desperate to prove herself as a worthy Gym Leader, Ash has to hope that his Pokémon are strong enough to defeat her.
Pokémon Trainer's Choice: Seviper
- The English dub is based on the phrase "going, going, gone"
- Before Flannery and Ash begin their gym battle, their Pokémon aren't seen on the field when Team Rocket spies on them.
- During the Trainer's Choice, Forretress' name is missing an r.
- In the Trainer's Choice the answer was Seviper although Forretress is immune to Poison.
