Template:Incomplete synopsis The group encounters a panicking trainer who apparently lost control of his Tauros. As Ash tries to stop him with his Bulbasaur, an older man watches both of them with great interest. They eventually discover that the old man is called Kenzo who invites them to a dojo where he is the current Shihan. The Group discovers that the identity of the future Shihan is under dispute, as Kenzo refuses to pass the title on to his granddaughter Chigusa. When an outsider called Shiro challenges the current Shihan to earn enough respect to open his own dojo, Chigusa has to show her grandfather that she is worth the title of Shihan.

Pokémon debuts

TV episode debuts




Who's That Pokémon?: Slowking (US and international), Hitmontop (Japan)


  • Chigusa's graceful fighting skills are more in line with those of a Pokémon Coordinator; a concept that had not been introduced to the franchise when this episode was produced.
  • The book Winner Takes All is based on this episode.


  • At one point, Chigusa says, "Hitmonlee and I are going to destroy Shiro". However, Hitmonlee is Shiro's Pokémon, as Chigusa owns a Hitmontop.
  • At one point, Shiro incorrectly refers Hitmonlee's Hi Jump Kick as "Hi Jump Attack".
  • At the point where Kenzo explains Chigusa the weakness of Hitmontop's spinning, Hitmontop stands in front of Chigusa. But after it turned around to her and back again, it suddenly stands behind her without moving a single step.
  • During "Who's That Pokémon", it says this Pokémon power was unleashed when it was bitten on its head. Slowking was never bitten instead it put a King's Rock on its head as a Slowpoke. They confused Slowking for Slowbro.

Dub edits

  • In the original version, when Kenzo says he is the Shihan of the Dojo, Ash thinks a Shihan is a new-type Pokémon. In the dub, he thinks it is a Chinese restaurant dish.
