201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201


On their way to their respective homes, Ash and May enter a contest in Terracata Town. Appealing with Pikachu and Eevee, Ash and May both get past the appeal stage and end up having to battle each other. Ash uses Sceptile, and May uses her newly evolved Blaziken, and the battle is fierce. However, despite the type advantage, both Pokémon are evenly matched. With 20 seconds left of battling, both Pokémon fire one last Solarbeam and Overheat attacks, respectively. They collide, and a thick cloud of smoke coats the arena. Which Pokémon remains standing...?
