As Lysandre’s attempt to take over Lumiose City continues, our heroes are doing what they can to defeat him. Ash and his Pokémon have been captured, but when Alain realizes that his work with Lysandre has led to this disaster, he helps them all get free. Ash and Alain join forces to challenge Lysandre to a battle!

Squishy, now revealed as the Legendary Pokémon Zygarde, is still trying to get through to Team Flare’s Zygarde—but Team Flare’s terrible machine soon brings Squishy under their control as well, as Bonnie watches in despair! The fate of the world hangs in the balance—who will be victorious?

Pokémon Quiz: Ash's Greninja (Ash-Greninja) (Japan)



The title card segment focuses on Ash for this episode


  • After Mega Blaziken dodges Druddigon's Dragon Claw, Clemont's glasses are missing the yellow part in the middle.
  • After Lysandre announces his intention to control Ash and Greninja, cables can be seen coming from the two bug devices firing the beams, despite them initially being wireless.
  • When the devices were being sent up to Ash and Greninja, Pikachu's cuffs for his legs are missing. This was fixed in the dub.
  • When Ash resists being controlled by Lysandre, Greninja is shown somewhat as Ash-Greninja, despite the fact that the transformation hadn't begun yet. This was fixed in the dub.
    • In the same scene, Pikachu is missing his tail.
  • Before Ash and Greninja transform into Ash-Greninja, Talonflame is missing the yellow cere on its beak.
  • When Charizard frees Ash's Pokémon, the outside of Noivern's eyes are green instead of yellow.
  • When Lysandre moves to the top of Prism Tower to face Ash and Alain after equipping the Lysandre Machine, Alain's left glove and Mega Ring briefly disappear.
  • Before Chespin uses Pin Missile, one of its spikes is overlapping its right arm.
  • When Mega Blaziken saves Bonnie, there is no fire emerging from its wrists.
  • Shortly after Xerosic announces Team Flare have control of Squishy, the bottom of Ash's t-shirt is white instead of black.
  • Lysandre's Shiny Gyarados doesn't sparkle when it's released from its Poké Ball.
  • When Greninja uses Cut, its light blue stripes are the same as its Giant Water Shuriken.
  • Greninja is seen charging up Cut despite being shown using it in the previous shot.
    • Additionally, its fingers on its left hand are colored creme instead of blue in one frame.
  • When Ash commands Noivern to use Dragon Claw, the borders on his gloves are black instead of red.
  • As Ash commands Noivern to use Dragon Claw, Noivern's face is white.
    • At the same moment, the bottom of Pikachu's legs are cut off.
      • A few frames later, part of Noivern's bottom jaw is white.
  • When Noivern uses Dragon Claw on Pyroar, Noivern's tail is missing.
  • When Lysandre recalls his Pyroar, he is seen without his equipment.
  • When Bonnie is chasing after Squishy, there are frames where Dedenne is missing the antenna on its left cheek.
  • Ash-Greninja is missing the webs on its left hand when Ash talks to Lysandre.

Dub edits

  • Several scenes are completely reanimated so that Ash, Pikachu, Greninja, Hawlucha and Goodra are no longer in a crucifixion-like pose when restrained by Lysandre's devices, a change that was presumably done to placate western censors due to the religious implications. However, these edits were not present in the previous episode, leading to some inconsistencies.
  • When Lysandre attempts to put Ash and Greninja under his control the two no longer scream in pain, instead looking in a trance like state as they're being put under Lysandre's control.
    • This reanimation also removes the earlier error of Ash-Greninja being present during the scene where the devices were being sent up to them.
  • XY&Z is replaced with an instrumental of Stand Tall.
