Template:Incomplete synopsis Dawn and Ursula have made it past the first round and must now face each other in battle. But, Ursula has a secret plan for Plusle and Minun. Will Dawn be able to defeat Ursula and win her fifth and final ribbon?

Major events


Pokémon debuts






  • Professor Oak's Pokémon lecture: Unown
  • This episode marks the first time that the main Coordinator of the anime won her fifth ribbon in a contest that isn't the final contest before the Grand Festival.
  • This episode marks the first appearance of a Togetic in the anime other than the one that belonged to Misty.
  • This episode is similar to Another One Gabites the Dust!, where:
    • Dawn, Ursula, and Jessie were the main coordinators.
    • Ursula beats Jessie prior to battling Dawn in the finals.
    • Dawn defeats Ursula just before time runs out.
  • Music from Spell of the Unown, Pokémon Heroes, Destiny Deoxys, Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea, and The Rise of Darkrai are played in this episode. By Your Side ~Hikari's Theme~ was also used as background music as the battle between Dawn and Ursula was about to end.
  • This episode first aired in both Japan and the United States only a week shy of a year since the episode in which Dawn obtained her previous ribbon, in which Ursula herself debuted.
  • This episode marks Cyndaquil's first Contest, and, coincidentally, it aired in the same week that An Egg Scramble!, the episode when Cyndaquil was obtained, aired in America.
  • While Dawn is watching Ursula's battle against Jessilina, a male coordinator next to her wears the same clothing that Giovanni is seen wearing in the anime: An orange tuxedo and a light tan shirt under. The only difference is that the coordinator is wearing a differently colored tie.
