Several girls gather around {{an|Brock}} to admire his {{TP|Brock|Bonsly}}, while [[Harley]] says from the background that he would like to hold Bonsly. Everyone is very displeased to see him. Harley asks May how many [[Ribbon]]s she has as in which she replies by showing off both of her Ribbons. Harley shows her his three Ribbons and that he would be getting his fourth in this Contest.

Harley runs into Team Rocket as they try to sell him [[Pokéblock]]. They say that they can provide information for Harley as they state their motto. Team Rocket says they can help Harley beat May in the Contest and exchange Harley would have to help them capture {{AP|Pikachu}}. Harley recognizes them as Team Rocket, the bad guys who are always defeated badly by Ash and his friends. Harley laughs hysterically as he says they are complete and total losers and that he would become a total loser like them if he tried to use any of their help. As Harley leaves, Team Rocket is mad and embarrassed that Harley had said those words in front of the public and says they will show him not to mess with them.

At the Contest Hall, Brock tells Eevee to watch May closely as she shows how great Contests really are and what they are about. [[Lilian Meridian|Lilian]] introduces [[Mr. Sukizo]], [[Raoul Contesta]] and [[Nurse Joy]] as the judges for the Contest. May brings out her Squirtle for the appeals round. Squirtle uses {{m|Rapid Spin}} to spin across the floor horizontally and upright, following it up with {{m|Bubble}} that spins around in the air as Squirtle spins around. May's friends all comment on how well they are doing and say she must have practiced really hard. The judges say that Squirtle was doing a remarkable job with that combination. Harley says May was doing a good job but he would do so much better. Squirtle uses Ice Beam to break the bubbles and then create a frozen fountain surrounded by frozen water. The Judges comment on how great the whole performance was and how great the finishing move was as well. In the other appeals, {{p|Rhydon}} was using {{m|Horn Drill}} to spin a top on its horn, {{p|Camerupt}} was blowing a lot of smoke, {{p|Machamp}} was juggling, and {{p|Magneton}} was using {{m|Thunderbolt}}.

Harley takes the stage and brings out his {{p|Ariados}} who comes out facing Harley instead of the audience. Ariados uses {{m|Spider Web}} to take over the whole stage and starts climbing and crawling around on it. Ariados bungee jumps from the top with the string attached to its abdomen. It spins itself around while wrapping itself with strings and uses {{m|Scary Face}} to scare everyone. Before finishing off its last move, a {{p|Wobbuffet}} falls from the ceiling and crashes onto the ground. Ariados uses Scary Face to scare Wobbuffet and it runs away. Pikachu who has been wearing a Japanese outfit while waving fans for support senses something is up, and runs outside the Contest Hall. Ash and Brock follow Pikachu to see what's up.

May tells Harley she is on her way to winning the whole thing.
   
The first battle of the battle stage begins. May's opponent brings out {{p|Politoed}} while May brings out Munchlax. Politoed uses {{m|Water Gun}} while Munchlax counters with {{m|SolarBeam}}. SolarBeam takes out Politoed right away allowing May to move on to the next round easily. Meanwhile, {{TRT}} is using one of their machines to grab {{pkmn|Coordinator}}s' Pokémon while the Coordinators have no idea where they went. Wobbuffet returns to them but Pikachu, Ash, and Brock had followed it to the roof. Ash demands to know what they are up to, and Team Rocket claims to be trying to help May win, but they captured other Pokémon so Ash doesn't believe them. Pikachu uses Thunderbolt to blast them away. Lillian announces the finalists as May and Harley for the final round.

The first battle of the battle round begins. May's Munchlax goes up against her opponent's {{p|Politoed}}. Munchlax charges up its {{m|SolarBeam}} and fires just before Politoad's {{m|Water Gun}}. SolarBeam takes out Politoed in one hit, allowing May to move on to the next round easily. Meanwhile, Team Rocket are using one of their machines to grab {{pkmn|Coordinator}}s' Pokémon, leaving the Coordinators with no idea where they went. Wobbuffet returns to them, but Pikachu and Ash had followed it to the roof. Ash demands to know what they are up to, and Team Rocket claims to be trying to help May win. Ash interrogates them about the stolen Pokémon, which Team Rocket claim is their commission for helping May. Ash doesn't believe them and has Pikachu use {{m|Thunderbolt}} to blast them away. Lillian announces May and Harley as the two Coordinators who will face off in the final round.
   
Before the match, Lillian says to everyone that because Harley and May have won in the past, that the match will be a high leveled Contest. Harley brings out {{p|Octillery}} while May brings out Munchlax. Brock warns that Octillery will not be easy for May to take down because it is so strong. Munchlax uses Focus Punch and Octillery jumps high in the air, lands on top of Munchlax and uses {{m|Constrict}}. Munchlax tries to use Focus Punch to knock Octillery off of it, but it fails and Octillery uses a powerful {{m|Octazooka}} while letting go. Munchlax uses SolarBeam, and Octillery uses {{m|Sludge Bomb}} which hits and causes an explosion hurting Munchlax. Munchlax uses {{m|Metronome}} which at first looks like it fizzled out, while Harley and Octillery were laughing hard at it. Brock says that they should just wait and be patient for it to come. A {{m|Thunder}} drops down onto Octillery out of nowhere and lands a [[critical hit]]. May is still way behind at this point. Octillery uses {{m|Rest}} to fully heal while everyone says that it's bad for May since Octillery will fully heal. Max yells to May to finish Octillery off before it heals but Ash explains that no matter what when Octillery wakes up it will be fully healed. Munchlax uses {{m|Tackle}}, Focus Punch, then another Tackle but it isn't enough as Octillery knocks Munchlax out with Octazooka. Harley wins his fourth Ribbon, and acknowledges the crowd after being handed the Ribbon.

Before the match, Lillian says to everyone that because Harley and May have won in the past, this Contest battle will be of a high level. Harley brings out {{p|Octillery}} while May releases Munchlax. Brock warns that Octillery looks like it should not be messed with. Munchlax uses Focus Punch and Octillery jumps high in the air, lands on top of Munchlax, and uses {{m|Constrict}}. Munchlax tries to use Focus Punch to knock Octillery off of it, but it fails and Octillery uses a powerful {{m|Octazooka}} at point-blank. Munchlax uses SolarBeam, but Octillery's {{m|Sludge Bomb}} hits first and causes an explosion. Near the end of her rope, May takes a risk and has Munchlax use {{m|Metronome}}, which at first appears to do nothing. Harley and Octillery began to laugh at the failed move, but suddenly a powerful {{m|Thunder}} drops down onto Octillery. Even after this lucky break, May is still way behind. Octillery uses {{m|Rest}} to fully heal, alarming May's friends, who tell her to attack before Octillery wakes up at full health. Munchlax uses {{m|Tackle}}, Focus Punch, and another Tackle, but it isn't enough. Octillery awakens and knocks Munchlax out with Octazooka. Harley is declared the winner and acknowledges the crowd after being handed his fourth Ribbon.
   
Later that day, Munchlax is being fed and May's friends are telling her that she did a great job during the Contest. Harley says to himself that nice girls finish last. Lillian comes up to May and hands her a flier about the next Contest which is going to be held on [[Chrysanthemum Island]]. Lillian also hands May an envelope with a rose attached while everyone says it has to be [[Drew]]. She opens up the envelope and the letter says that he will be seeing her there at the Chrysanthemum Island Contest.

Synopsis

Ash and his friends finally arrive in Wisteria Town, where May will compete in the Wisteria Contest to try to win her third Ribbon. She practices with her Munchlax by throwing a ball into the air and having Munchlax use Focus Punch to break it, dropping confetti everywhere. Everyone comments on how Munchlax looked cute and strong when it hit the ball. May and Munchlax show confidence that they will win their third Ribbon. Eevee goes up to May and indicates that it wants to be in the Contest, but May tells it they need more practice first. Ash asks May if she has decided whether to use Munchlax in both rounds or not. May says she will go with Squirtle in the appeals round and Munchlax in the battle round.

Brock is excited to be surrounded by several girls who are admiring his Bonsly. Harley appears, much to the group's shock and dislike, and says he would like to hold Bonsly. He then goes over to May and asks her how many Ribbons she has. She shows off both of her Ribbons, but Harley reveals that he has three and says he'll win his fourth in this Contest. As they are both stating that they will be victorious, May is shown as a Munchlax and Harley is shown as an Ariados. May's friends tell her not to get worked up over Harley and to focus on winning the Contest.

Harley runs into Team Rocket at their Pokéblock stand. They say they can provide information for Harley as they state their motto. Team Rocket offer to help Harley beat May in the Contest if he would help them capture Pikachu. He recognizes them as Team Rocket, the bad guys who are always defeated badly by Ash and his friends. Harley laughs hysterically, calling them complete and total losers, and saying he would become a total loser like them if he tried to use any of their help. As Harley leaves, Team Rocket become embarrassed and enraged by his public insults and vow to show him not to mess with them.

At the Contest Hall, Brock tells Eevee to watch May closely as she shows how great Contests really are and what they are about. Lilian introduces Mr. Sukizo, Raoul Contesta, and Nurse Joy as the judges for the Contest. May brings out her Squirtle for the appeals round. Squirtle uses Rapid Spin to spin across the floor horizontally and upright, following it up with a Bubble attack that spins around in the air as Squirtle spins around. May's friends all comment on how well they are doing and how hard she must have practiced. The judges say Squirtle was doing a remarkable job with that combination. Harley says May was doing a good job but he would do so much better. Squirtle uses Ice Beam to break the bubbles and then creates a frozen fountain surrounded by frozen water. The judges comment on how great the whole performance was, particularly the finishing move. In the other appeals, Rhydon used Horn Drill to spin a top on its horn, Camerupt blew a lot of smoke, Machamp juggled, and Magneton used .

Harley takes the stage and brings out his Ariados, who appears with its back to the audience. Ariados uses Spider Web to take over the whole stage and starts climbing and crawling around on it. Ariados bungee jumps from the top with the string attached to its abdomen. It spins itself around while wrapping itself with string and uses Scary Face to scare everyone. Before finishing off its last move, a Wobbuffet falls from the ceiling and crashes onto the ground. Ariados uses Scary Face to scare Wobbuffet and it runs away. Pikachu, who has been wearing a Japanese outfit while waving fans for support, senses something is up, and runs outside the Contest Hall with Ash in pursuit. The results of the appeals round are in, and May is in first with Harley in second. Harley is not very happy with it and tells May she won't be in the lead for long. May tells Harley she is on her way to winning the whole thing.

The first battle of the battle round begins. May's Munchlax goes up against her opponent's Politoed. Munchlax charges up its SolarBeam and fires just before Politoad's Water Gun. SolarBeam takes out Politoed in one hit, allowing May to move on to the next round easily. Meanwhile, Team Rocket are using one of their machines to grab Coordinators' Pokémon, leaving the Coordinators with no idea where they went. Wobbuffet returns to them, but Pikachu and Ash had followed it to the roof. Ash demands to know what they are up to, and Team Rocket claims to be trying to help May win. Ash interrogates them about the stolen Pokémon, which Team Rocket claim is their commission for helping May. Ash doesn't believe them and has Pikachu use Thunderbolt to blast them away. Lillian announces May and Harley as the two Coordinators who will face off in the final round.

Munchlax uses SolarBeam, but Octillery's Sludge Bomb hits first and causes an explosion. Near the end of her rope, May takes a risk and has Munchlax use Metronome, which at first appears to do nothing. Harley and Octillery began to laugh at the failed move, but suddenly a powerful Thunder drops down onto Octillery. Even after this lucky break, May is still way behind. Octillery uses Rest to fully heal, alarming May's friends, who tell her to attack before Octillery wakes up at full health. Munchlax uses Tackle, Focus Punch, and another Tackle, but it isn't enough. Octillery awakens and knocks Munchlax out with Octazooka. Harley is declared the winner and acknowledges the crowd after being handed his fourth Ribbon.

Later that day, Munchlax is being fed and May's friends are telling her that she did a great job during the Contest. Meanwhile, Harley says to himself that nice girls finish last. Lillian comes up to May and hands her a flier about the next Contest which will be held on Chrysanthemum Island.
