Template:Incomplete synopsis The episode starts out with a flashback to the second third round match in the Pokémon World Tournament Junior Cup where Ash and Iris battled with their Iris's and Ash's respectively. The battle was turning in Iris's favor initially due to Dragonite apparently listening to her, however when Krokorok evolves and learns Dragon Claw, Dragonite goes on a rampage until Krookodile defeats it. Ash would then battle Trip and his Trip's with his Ash's, but despite his best efforts, he loses. Trip has won the Pokémon World Tournament Junior Cup and is allowed to have the chance to battle Alder. The battle was between Alder's Bouffalant and Trip's Serperior. Trip's Serperior has just used SolarBeam.

Serperior's SolarBeam goes forward, but Alder tells Bouffalant to rush forward. Bouffalant charges towards Serperior, but SolarBeam hits it. Though the attack had hit Bouffalant, Trip appears to be aware of something else. Eventually Bouffalant repels the attack from its body and is shown to be undamaged by the attack. Trip correctly states that Bouffalant's ability is Sap Sipper. Cilan wonders why Trip used a Grass-type move when he was aware that it would not work on Bouffalant. Alder confirms that Bouffalant's ability is Sap Sipper which allows Bouffalant to increase its attack power from Grass-type moves that hit it instead of taking damage from them. Alder claims his Bouffalant is unstoppable at this point, but Trips claims he is just going to have to prove them wrong and prove he is more powerful than Alder. Alder tells Trip if he wants to prove that, then he has to hit him with his best shot. Frustrated, Trip orders Dragon Tail. Serperior's attack hits Bouffalant's afro, but once again Bouffalant is unfazed. Alder tells Trip to show him what else he is got. Serperior then uses Leer which lowers Bouffalant's defense. Serperior then jumps into the air and attacks with Dragon Tail. Trip, in his mind, notes that he had purposely let Sap Sipper be activated, so that Alder and Bouffalant would let their guard down and then he followed that up with Leer to lower Bouffalant's defense. Finally he used Dragon Tail from above as a trap in order to hit where he is really aiming for - Bouffalant's most vulnerable spot. Serperior's Dragon Tail then hits Bouffalant from below, which knocks Bouffalant away. Bouffalant lands on its feet, but to Trip's shock, Bouffalant is still unscathed by all those attacks. Alder commends the power, speed, and strategy Trip used, but he notes that Trip's strategy didn't work because he is fighting a champion. Alder orders Head Charge and Bouffalant charges forward. Desperate, Trip tells Serperior to dodge, but it's too late, Head Charge hits Serperior and knocks it out, therefore Alder wins. Trip is greatly shocked that he lost to Alder despite all his calculations.
