In the anime
Following Ash's Battle Pike victory, the group arrived on Potpourri Island in Off the Unbeaten Path. The group and Team Rocket participated in the annual Pokémon Orienteering event alongside one of their Pokémon in a race to find stamps at five checkpoints accross the island. James and Mime Jr. managed to win the competition and earn the large food prize, which he gave away to Ash and friends for saving the Pokémon Center Nursery's Pokémon from Jessie and Meowth's clutches.
In the next episode, Ash and his friends traveled to the other side of the island in order to reach Wisteria Town, where a Pokémon Contest was going to take place. May, her rival Harley, and several other Coordinators entered the event hoping to win the coveted Wisteria Ribbon. May and Harley were pitched against one another in the final round, and Harley managed to defeat her Munchlax using his Octillery, thus winning the competition and earning his fourth Kanto Ribbon.
