Bonnie is always looking for someone to take care of her big brother—until suddenly, someone agrees to do so! Lilia is looking for a partner who can take over her father’s robotics company. She also has a Buneary who seems to be sweet on Clemont’s Bunnelby. Everything is falling into place—and Bonnie couldn’t be less happy!

But in the middle of a Team Rocket attack, Bonnie finds herself in danger, and Clemont leaps to her rescue, even sacrificing his precious Aipom Arm in the process. Lilia decides she’s not ready to settle down yet after all, the siblings are reunited, and our heroes are off once again to Snowbelle City!

The title card segment focuses on Bonnie for this episode


  • After Clemont's invention explodes, the toothpaste in Dedenne's mouth disappears.
  • When Bonnie takes Lilia away from the group after she and Bunnelby fell in Team Rocket's trap, Dedenne is on Bonnie's head though when Bonnie approached her, Dedenne wasn't.
  • In the dub, Clemont tells Lilia that there are transmitters in the bandages he put on her and Buneary earlier, when in fact it was actually her and Bunnelby who had bandages put on their injuries.
    • Also, only Lilia's bandage was put on by Clemont, as Bonnie put Bunnelby's on.
  • In the dub, before Pikachu and Luxray dodge the attacks from Team Rocket's Pokémon, Ash and Clemont's mouths moves, but no sound was heard.

Dub edits

  • In the dub, Ash and Clemont didn't tell Pikachu and Luxray to dodge Team Rocket's Pokémon's attacks. In the original, they tell them to dodge.
  • An instrumental of Stand Tall was used as an insert song.
