Sophocles has wanted to enter a Charjabug race for a long time, and now with Ash and Kiawe on his team, he finally can! The huge event features tough competitors, including the arrogant Red Comet team and a disguised Team Rocket.

Red Comet is favored to win, and it starts out strong! But when it’s time to confront a giant sheet of ice, everyone has problems—except for a quick-thinking Sophocles, who uses his Charjabug’s String Shot move to maintain traction. As Red Comet looks on in horror, the Sophocles Lab team reaches the finish line and becomes the happy winner!

Trivia

  • Poké Problem: What is my Charjabug's Nature?
    • Host: Sophocles
    • Choices: Calm, Timid, Gentle, Mild
    • Answer: Mild
  • The car that Horacio's Shiny Charjabug drives is based on the high-speed flight form of a Shiny Genesect and the Red Zaku II from Gundam, from the horn on top of Charjabug's head and the team that it belongs to, being called "Red Comet".
  • The Japanese title of this episode is a reference to the series Dash! Yonkuro. When cheering Charjabug on as it crossed the finish line, the faces that Ash, Sophocles, and Kiawe's made referenced some of its main characters (Sophocles as Dankuro Toda, Ash as Yonkuro Hinomaru, and Kiawe as Shinkuro Minami).
  • The disguises which Jessie and James wear in this episode are a reference to the series Bakusō Kyōdai Let's & Go!!, with Jessie's outfit based on the character of Retsu Seiba, and James's outfit based on Gō Seiba.
  • The contraption that Kiawe wears on his body during the montage scene of Ash, Kiawe, and Sophocles preparing for the Charjabug race is a reference to the series Star of the Giants, where the main character wore a similar contraption on his body, in order to straighten out his arms, making him better at playing baseball. Meowth wore a similar device during a flashback in Pulling Out the Pokémon Base Pepper!.
  • Pose is used as an insert song during Charjabug's training montage for the race.
  • This episode marks the first instance of Natures being mentioned in the anime.
  • Mallow, Ash, Lillie, Kiawe, Lana, and Sophocles narrate the preview for the next episode.

Errors

  • When Charjabug first used String Shot, Sophocles was hit despite him standing behind the Battery Pokémon.
  • Right when Castform is about to change from its Rainy Form to its Snowy Form, it's colored as its Normal Form.
