Plot: There was no indication for her being scared and in the next episode Oak said, that she missed Ash
The day begins with everyone waiting for the [[Whirl Cup]] Colosseum as the water drains out somewhat. Soon all the {{pkmn|Trainer}}s and audience watch {{jo|Maya}}. She congratulates them as well as wishing them a little luck. She then puts her staff that has a sapphire at the end towards the sun which makes the area glow bluish for a while. The prize given to the winning Trainer is {{DL|Type-enhancing item|Mystic Water|a pendant}} that helps the {{t|Water}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} who wears it. {{TRT}}, acting as vendors, gazes upon the staff more than the pendant. They find a scheme to try to snatch it.
The way the Whirl Cup tournament goes is a two "block" division, {{Ash}} and {{an|Misty}} are in block "A". Ash notices he only has {{AP|one Water Pokémon|Totodile}}, so he calls {{an|Professor Oak}} to swap a Pokémon for {{AP|Kingler}}. He puts in {{AP|Bayleef}} and he gets Kingler. Back at [[Professor Oak's Laboratory]], Oak releases Bayleef, but Bayleef gets avery littlesad scaredfrom ofbeing Oakaway from Ash and runs around eventually ramming into Oak. The first day all contestants in block A fight off. Ash and Misty sort of get into a fight before the first match begins but {{an|Brock}} helps settle things out.
The second round of Block A pits Ash against {{OBP|Christopher|EP216}}. Ash uses Totodile for this round and his opponent calls out {{p|Kingdra}}. Ash takes a quick scan on it and Brock in the bleachers comments to Misty that Ash might not have a good time with this one. Being {{2t|Water|Dragon}}, Totodile's Water [[Move|attacks]] are practically useless. Ash takes the lead and commands Totodile to dive under the water but Kingdra counters with a {{m|Twister}}. Totodile snaps out of it and lands on one of the platforms. After that Kingdra shoots a {{m|Hydro Pump}} at Totodile, but Totodile simply walks along the water and gets close enough to do a {{m|Headbutt}}, but Kingdra dives, Totodile doing the same. Kingdra releases a {{m|SmokeScreen}} that covers up the water. With no other option, Ash tells Totodile to jump out of the water. The battle comes to a standstill because it was expected that Ash would have Totodile risk it and jump back in. Fed up, the Trainer tells Kingdra to jump up and try another Hydro Pump. Ash however tells Totodile to use {{m|Bite}} on Kingdra, aiming for the snout. Totodile is successful and plugs up Kingdra's snout causing all the water to hold back. After a while Totodile releases and Kingdra goes flying across and eventually getting [[fainting|knocked out]]. Ash wins the match. After the match, Team Rocket is still devising a plan to get Maya's staff. Except a supervisor comes by and they seem to have a strong patriotism to the sales pitch. Later that night Misty stares at the coliseum from the [[Pokémon Center]] window thinking. Ash notices and they have the talk about what will happen if they end up battling each other.
