Summary

English Official Summary

As our heroes continue toward Daybreak Town and Dawn's next Pokémon Contest, they find themselves lost in a deep forest. Suddenly, they come across a retired Air Battle Master named McCann, as well as his granddaughter, Maya, and McCann's Scizor. Even though McCann is now retired, he mentions that he still occasionally has an aerial battle with a worthy opponent...if he can find one. In an instant, Ash's Gliscor wants to have an aerial battle with McCann, who agrees. As the battle ensues, it becomes obvious that Gliscor knows little about battling mid-air. Afterward, Gliscor, Ash, and Dawn head out in the middle of the night for some training based on McCann's secret key to air battling-"reading the wind."By morning, with newfound knowledge and confidence, Ash and Gliscor challenge McCann and Scizor again! Ultimately, Gliscor is defeated, but shows much-improved skill in reading the wind, and Ash realizes Gliscor has learned a new move-Giga Impact! Impressed by Gliscor's abilities, McCann offers Gliscor the opportunity to stay and train with him, to which Gliscor agrees wholeheartedly. Ash accepts Gliscor's decision, and our heroes head off once again on their journey as Gliscor stays behind for some sure-to-be amazing and comprehensive training with Mr. McCann!

Finnish Official Summary

Sankariemme jatkaessa matkaansa kohti Daybreak Townia Dawnin seuraavaan Pokémon-kilpailuun he eksyvät suureen metsään. Yllättäen he tapaavat eläköityneen ilmaottelumestarin nimeltä McCann, hänen lapsenlapsensa Mayan ja McCannin Scizorin. McCann kertoo olevansa eläkkeellää, mutta että hän silti ottelee ilmaotteluja silloin tällöin, jos kohtaa arvoisensa vastustajan. Yllättäen Ashin Gliscor tahtookin ilmaottelun McCannia vastaan ja näin sitten tapahtuu. Ottelun edetessä käy tosin selväksi, että Gliscor ei tiedä paljoakaan ilmaotteluista. Ash, Dawn ja Gliscor kuitenkin muistavat, mitä McCann oli aiemmin kertonut “tuulen lukemisesta”, ja he menevätkin keskellä yötä vähän harjoittelemaan. Aamulla uuden tietämyksen valossa ja itsevarmuutta uhkuen Ash ja Gliscor haastavat McCannin ja hänen Scizorinsa uudestaan, ja vaikka Gliscor kokeekin lopulta tappion, se osoittaa olevansa nyt paljon taitavampi ”lukemaan tuulta”. Lisäksi Ash saa huomata, että Gliscor on oppinut uuden liikkeenkin – Giga Impactin! McCann on niin vaikuttunut Gliscorin kyvyistä, että tarjoaa sille mahdollisuuden jäädä kouluttautumaan hänen kanssaan ja Gliscor ottaakin tarjouksen ilomielin vastaan. Ash myöntyy myös ja sankarimme lähtevät jatkamaan matkaa Gliscorin jäädessä saamaan takuulla mahtavaa ja kattavaa opetusta McCannilta.

Russian Official Summary

Наши герои теряются в лесу на пути в Дейбрейк-таун. Внезапно они натыкаются на отошедшего от дел мастера воздушного боя МакКейна, его внучку Майю и покемона МакКейна, Сайзора. МакКейн рассказывает, что, хоть он и отошел от дел, иногда он всё-таки соглашается сразиться с сильными оппонентами. Когда же Эш предлагает ему сразиться, он соглашается. К сожалению для Эша, его Глайскор оказывается не очень опытным в воздушных сражениях, и они проигрывают. Впрочем, послушавшись совета МакКейна о чтении ветра, Эш с Глайсокорм проводят всю следую ночь в тренировках. На следующее утро Эш снова вызывает МакКейна на бой. И, не смотря на то, что Глайскор вновь оказывается повержен, он демонстрирует хороший прогресс, и очень удивляет этим МакКейна. Впечатлённый МакКейн даже предлагает Глайскору остаться с ним и отточить свои умения. Глайскор с радостью соглашается. Эш желает своему покемону удачи, и наши герои продолжают своё долгое путешествие.

Op weg naar Dawns volgende Pokémon-wedstrijd in Daybreak Town, ontmoeten onze helden een luchtgevechtmeester, die Gliscor van Ash een uitdaging geeft... en een kans!

Norwegian Official Summary

I det heltene våre fortsetter ferden mot Daybreak Town og Dawns neste Pokémonkonkurranse, ser de ut til å ha gått seg vill i en dyp skog. Plutselig møter de på en pensjonert Luft Kamp Mester med navn McCann, hans barnebarn Maya og McCanns Scizor. Selv om McCann er pensjonert, forteller han at han av og til har en Luft Kamp mot en verdig motstander, hvis han kan finne en. Plutselig ønsker Ash sin Gliscor å ha en Luft Kamp mot McCann, og han tar imot utfordringen. Men når kampen skrider frem, er det tydelig at Gliscor vet lite om Luft Kamp. Men basert på det som McCann har fortalt dem tidligere om ”å lese vinden”, drar Gliscor, sammen med Ash og Dawn, ut midt på natten for å trene. Om morgenen, med nye kunnskaper og selvtillit, utfordrer Ash og Gliscar McCann og Scizor nok engang, og selv om Gliscor til slutt blir beseiret, viser Gliscor en sterkt forbedret evne til ”å lese vinden”, og Ash finner ut at Gliscor har lært et nytt trekk – Giga Impact! McCann er så imponert over Gliscors evner at han tilbyr ham å bli igjen der og trene med ham, som Gliscor ubetinget går med på. Ash går med på det også, og vi forlater heltene våre i det de drar av sted igjen på deres ferd, mens Gliscor blir igjen til noe som garantert kommer til å bli fantastisk og innholdsrik trening med Hr. McCann. I det heltene våre fortsetter ferden mot Daybreak Town og Dawns neste Pokémonkonkurranse, ser de ut til å ha gått seg vill i en dyp skog.

Swedish Official Summary

När våra Hjältar fortsätter mot Daybreak Town och Dawns nästa Pokémon-tävling, verkar de gå gått vilse i de djupa skogarna. Plötsligt stöter de på en pensionerad Luftstridsmästare vid namn McCann, hans sondotter Maya och McCanns Scizor. Han förklarar att han nu gått i pension, men nämner att han fortfarande emellanåt går en Luftstrid med en värdig motståndare om han finner någon. Med ens vill Ashs Gliscor gå en Luftstrid mot McCann, som samtycker. Men under den Luftstrid som följer blir det uppenbart att Gliscor inte vet mycket om Luftstrider. Med det som McCann tidigare berättat för dem om ”att läsa vinden” i åtanke, ger sig dock Gliscor, tillsammans med Ash och Dawn, ut mitt i natten för att träna. Framåt morgonen, med nyfunnen kunskap och självförtroende, utmanar Ash och Gliscor McCann och Scizor ännu en gång, och trots att Gliscor till slut blir besegrad, visar Gliscor en klart förbättrad förmåga att ”läsa vinden” – och Ash inser att Gliscor har lärt sig ett nytt move; Giga Impact! McCann är så imponerad av Gliscors skicklighet att han erbjuder Gliscor möjligheten att stanna kvar och träna med honom, vilket Gliscor helhjärtat går med på. Ash samtycker också, och vi lämnar våra Hjältar när de än en gång ger sig av på sin resa, medan Gliscor stannar kvar för en säkerligen fantastisk och omfattande träning med herr McCann.

Danish Official Summary

På vore heltes videre færd mod Daybreak Town og Dawns næste Pokémonkonkurrence farer de vild i en dyb skov. Pludseligt møder de en pensioneret luftkampmester ved navn McCann, dennes barnebarn Maya og hans Scizor. McCann fortæller, at selvom han nu har trukket sig tilbage, så tager han gerne en luftkamp i ny og næ, hvis han kan finde en værdig modstander. Ash’ Gliscor er straks med på en luftkamp med McCann, og denne tager imod udfordringen. Men som kampen skrider frem, bliver det tydeligt, at Gliscor ikke ved meget om luftkamp. Men McCann har allerede fortalt meget om ”at læse vinden”, og Gliscor går sammen med Ash og Dawn ud midt om natten for at træne. Om morgenen udfordrer Ash og Gliscor med deres nyvundne viden og sikkerhed McCann og Scizor til endnu en kamp. Selvom om Gliscor taber kampen til sidst, er den nu meget bedre til ”at læse vinden”, og Ash opdager, at Gliscor har lært et nyt træk – Giga Impact! Nu bliver McCann så imponeret over Gliscors evner, at han tilbyder Gliscor at blive og træne hos ham, hvilket Gliscor tager imod af hele sit hjerte. Ash har heller ingen indvendinger, og vore helte genoptager til sidst deres rejse, mens Gliscor bliver tilbage for at modtage McCanns træning, der med sikkerhed vil blive både spændende og omfattende.

xD I always thought Hassam would be a great equivalent to Glion, with them both "flying", and having the pincers, ect., it`ll be great to see them battle it out.

A disappoint episode because one of the best character Pokemon departs the series. Glion had such a great personality and it will be unfortunate to see him go. Hopefully he will return at some point stronger than ever similar to how Ash left Charizard to train.

Have to admit, it was unfortunate to see Glion leave the team, though I`m excited for Fukamaru`s upcoming appearance next week, Glion was definitely one of the more interesting Pok

- During the battle, Glion learns a new attack; Giga Impact.
- Glion loses the battle again, but the Air Master is impressed by its progress and offers Satoshi to train it, so it can become stronger in air-battling.

Satoshi and his friends first met him when they got lost in the woods and came upon the valley where Mitsuzoh and his granddaughter were having a battle. He is an expert in midair Pokémon battles, but has retired and rarely battles anymore, apart from having practice battles with his granddaughter Mayo from time to time. Even though many Pokémon trainers have asked him to either take them on as apprentices or, if that can't be done, to at least train their Pokémon to become stronger in air battles, he has turned them all down, because he didn't see any potential in the trainers' Pokémon.

He owns a Hassam which he has trained in order to take advantage of the wind currents when it battles. He used that Hassam against Satoshi's Glion, when Satoshi asked the Air Battle Master to have a battle with him so that he could test his Glion's strength. The battle ended in an absolute victory for Hassam due to it skillfully using the wind currents to dodge Glion's attacks. After seeing that Glion was unable to land a hit on Hassam, he advised Satoshi to practice on how to 'read' the wind movements along with his Pokémon, so that it can become stronger.

He later accepted another battle challenge from Satoshi. Using his Hassam again, he battled against a stronger Glion, but still managed to win. He was amazed, though, by Glion's overnight improvement, as well as its strong, newly-learned Giga Impact attack, and offered Satoshi to train his Pokémon. Satoshi accepted the offer after noticing his Glion's will to become stronger, and thus left it in Mitsuzoh's care.

-Mitsuzoh's Hassam:
Air Battle Master Mitsuzoh owns a powerful Hassam, which he has trained in order to skillfully use the wind currents when it is battling in midair with other Pokémon. Satoshi and his friends first saw it when it was battling against a Chirean in a practice battle between Mitsuzoh and his granddaughter. It later battled against Satoshi's Glion and managed to avoid all of its opponent's attacks by taking advantage of the wind, which led to its absolute win over Glion. Hassam was used again by Mitsuzoh in his rematch battle with Satoshi, but this time Glion proved to be a more challenging opponent with its newly-learned Giga Impact attack. Hassam, however, managed to pull a close win using its powerful Hyper Beam attack.

-Mayo:
Mayo is the granddaughter of Air Battle Master Mitsuzoh. She helps her grandfather train Pokémon to become stronger in midair battles and even acts as his opponent in practice battles from time to time. She was surprised that Satoshi didn't know who her grandfather was, and she was the one who later told him and his friends more about the Air Battle Master.

-Satoshi's Glion:
On their way to Asatsuki Town, Satoshi and his friends met the Air Battle Master Mitsuzoh. In order to test his Glion's strength, Satoshi asked Mitsuzoh to have a battle with him. Mitsuzoh accepted, but the opponent's Hassam proved to be really strong, as it used the wind currents to dodge all of Glion's attacks. The loss made Glion really sad, but also motivated it to train harder overnight on 'reading' the wind movements with Satoshi's help. During the rematch battle against Mitsuzoh, Glion learned Giga Impact, which aided it in putting up a better fight than in the previous battle. Even though in the end it still lost, Mitsuzoh was really impressed by Glion's improvement and thus offered Satoshi to train it. After Satoshi noticed his Glion's will to become stronger, he accepted Mitsuzoh's offer and let Glion in the Air Battle Master's care.
