Template:Incomplete synopsis The group visits a dojo where the identity of the future Shihan is under dispute. The current shihan wants it to be Ash while the title is also wanted by his granddaughter, Chigusa, and an outsider, Shiro. When Chigusa battles Shiro, she must understand the secret to Ash's strength to win.

Pokémon debuts




Who's That Pokémon?: Slowking


  • 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.
  • When Ash told Chigusa that he doesn't have any fighting type Pokémon, Ash said he didn't have one. However, Ash has a Heracross, a part fighting type Pokémon.


  • 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".

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.
