Unlocking Some Respect! (Japanese: レフトとライト！揺れる心のカメテテ！！ Left and Right! The Kametete's Swaying Heart!!) is the 111th episode of the XY series, and the 910th episode of the Pokémon anime. It first aired in Japan on March 10, 2016 and in the United States on June 18, 2016.
Our heroes check out a gem exhibition, but it’s canceled when Master Thief Keyes picks the lock! He often targets the work of locksmith Ed, whose apprentice Locke recently quit. Ed has his suspicions...
When a fire starts at the Pokémon Center, Locke gets trapped inside! Ed comes to help, and the two locksmiths and their Binacle friends work together to open the tricky lock. Locke confesses that he became Master Thief Keyes to earn Ed’s respect—and Ed says he already knew!
The lock comes open, and Officer Jenny arrests Locke, but lets him off with a warning. Ed, Locke, and their Binacle are reunited, and all is well!
At Team Flare's Headquarters, Xerosic looks at Z2 before instructing a Team Flare Admin to begin the irradiation which he does causing Z2 to be hit by bolts as it cries out in pain. Watching the results, Xerosic is impressed by Z2's power as Ash and his friends arrive in Jacore Town, Squishy appears to sense Z2's pain and hopes out of Bonnie's bag and onto her head. Bonnie notices that Squishy seems to be sad and sings her song to try and cheer Squishy up which helps to cheer Squishy up as they continue on their journey. Walking past an information screen, Serena spots that a beautiful gem is being exhibited at the hotel and is keen to visit along with Bonnie and suggests they visit which they agree to do and head off to the hotel unaware that a mysterious figure is watching from a rooftop. Ash and his friends arrive at the hotel only to learn from the receptionist that the exhibit is closed and invites them to come back another time. Ash asks if they have a room available which they have and suggests staying the night and checking the exhibit tomorrow. In the exhibit, the mysterious figure from before opens a skylight in the roof and jumps down and approaches the gem which is locked and with the assistance of Lefty, starts to open the lock. In a corridor, Serena is suggesting they go to bed early when an alarm sounds and spot two guards run past saying its the gem exhibit and follow. At the exhibit, a guard notices that the gem is still there as another notices the padlock is unlocked as they hear laughter from the skylight and look up as Ash and his friends arrive as the figure introduces himself as Master Thief Keyes and admits to opening the lock before throwing down a calling card before escaping as the guards call for Officer Jenny.
