When our heroes arrive at the Sunyshore Gym for Ash's next Sinnoh Gym battle, they discover that the Gym Leader, Volkner, is giving away Badges free to any challenger without battling! Ash gets very upset, so much so that he is about to be thrown off the Gym premises. Before he can be thrown out, the process is interrupted by none other than Flint of the Elite Four. Flint is a good friend of Volkner's, so our heroes accompany him to see the disenchanted Gym Leader. Still, Volkner mysteriously refuses to battle Ash.

When Volkner continues to refuse Ash's challenge, it is suggested that Flint battle Ash instead, which he agrees to do, with Volkner watching. The battle between Ash and Flint is intense, and it reminds Volkner of the days when he participated in electrifying battles alongside Flint.

Quando nossos heróis chegam ao Ginásio de Sunyshore para a próxima Batalha De Ginásio de Sinnoh de Ash, eles descobrem que o Líder do Ginásio, Volkner, não só não está disponível, como o ginásio está dando Insígnias para qualquer desafiante sem batalhar! Ash fica muito irritado e enquanto está sendo forçosamente dispensado do recinto do ginásio, ele é resgatado por ninguém menos que Flint, da Elite Dos 4. Flint é um bom amigo de Volkner, e leva nossos heróis para vê-lo. Mas Volkner, misteriosamente, recusa-se a batalhar com Ash. Flint, mais tarde, explica que eles eram bons amigos e uma equipe quando crianças, mas Volkner perdeu o interesse pelos desafiantes quando tornou-se Líder de Ginásio. E quando Volkner, ainda assim, recusa-se a aceitar o desafio de Ash, ele sugere que Flint batalhe com Ash, e ele concorda contanto que Volkner assista. A batalha é intensa, e Volkner se lembra dele mesmo quando jovem, batalhando apaixonadamente ao lado de Flint. Embora Ash perca, sua perseverança impressiona tanto a Volkner que ele, finalmente, concorda em batalhar com Ash no Ginásio de Sunyshore, cheio de uma paixão renovada para batalhar!

Finnish Official Summary

Kun sankarimme saapuvat Sunyshoren salille Ashin seuraava saliottelua varten, heille selviää, että salijohtaja Volkner ei ole paikalla ja että sali antaa merkkejä kaikille haastajille ilman ottelua! Ash hermostuu kovasti ja kun hänet heitetään kovin ottein ulos salilta, hänet pelastaa itse Neloseliittien Flint. Flint on Volknerin hyvä ystävä ja vie sankarimme häntä tapaamaan. Volkner kieltäytyy kuitenkin jostain syystä ottelemasta Ashiä vastaan. Flint selittää, että he olivat Volknerin kanssa nuorempina hyviä ystäviä ja tiimitovereita, mutta Volkner kyllästyi haastajiin tultuaan salijohtajaksi. Ja vaikka Volkner kieltäytyy yhä hyväksymästä Ashin haastetta, Ash pyytää Flintiä ottelemaan kanssaan ja tämä suostuukin – ja Volkner jää seuraamaan vierestä. Ottelu on niin jännittävä, että Volknerille tulee mieleen hänen nuoruutensa päivät, kun hän otteli innoissaan Flintin rinnalla. Vaikka Ash häviää, hänen sisukkuutensa tekee Volkneriin niin suuren vaikutuksen, että hän suostuu viimeinkin ottelemaan Ashin kanssa Sunyshoren salilla – saatuaan uuden kipinän ottelemiseen!

Russian Official Summary

Когда наши герои прибывают в Санишор-сити, оказывается, что гим-лидер, Волкнер, не просто отказывается сражаться, но и раздает значки всем желающим, без борьбы. Эш расстраивается, но, когда его с друзьями выпроваживают из здания гима, он случайно сталкивается с Флинтом, одним из Элитной Четверки. Флинт оказывается близким другом Волкнера, и отводит наших героев к нему. Но Волкнер без объяснения причин отказывается от битвы. Позднее Флинт рассказал Эшу, что Волкнер потерял интерес к гим-битвам после того, как стал гим-лидером. Приняв отказ Волкнера, Эш бросает вызов Флинту. Волкнер же решает понаблюдать за сражением. Битва оказывается на редкость напряженной, и, глядя на Эша, Волкнер вспоминает себя в молодости. Несмотря на то, что Эш проигрывает, Волкнер, снова почуявший дух борьбы, неожиданно соглашается сразиться с ним!

Dutch Official Summary

Als onze helden arriveren bij de Sunyshore Gym voor Ash’s volgende Sinnoh Gym Gevecht, ontdekken ze dat de Gym Leader, Volkner, niet alleen niet beschikbaar is, maar dat de Gym lintjes aan iedere Uitdager weggeeft zonder dat er een Gevecht plaatsvindt! Ash is erg van slag als hij met geweld van het Gym terrein wordt gezet, maar wordt dan door niemand anders gered dan Flint van de Elite Vier. Flint is een goede vriend van Volkner en brengt onze helden naar hem toe. Maar Volkner weigert op mysterieuze wijze met Ash te vechten. Flint legt later uit dat ze tijdens hun jeugd goede vrienden en een team waren, maar dat Volkner zijn interesse in uitdagers heeft verloren toen hij Gym Leader werd. En als Volkner nog steeds  Ash’s uitdaging weigert aan te nemen, wordt er voorgesteld dat Flint tegen Ash zal vechten. Ash stemt daarmee in en Volkner zal toekijken. Het gevecht is hevig en Volkner wordt eraan herinnerd hoe hij als jongeman was en  samen met Flint vocht. Ash verliest, maar Volkner is zo onder de indruk dat hij eindelijk een Gevecht met Ash  in de Sunyshore Gym wil houden, en is weer helemaal opgeladen en heeft zin in het gevecht!

Norwegian Official Summary

Når våre helter ankommer Sunyshore-gym for Ash sin neste Sinnoh Gym-kamp, så oppdager de at Gym-lederen, Volkner, ikke bare ikke er tilgjengelig, men hans Gym gir ikke Badges til noen utfordrere uten en kamp! Ash blir veldig opprørt, og når han blir kastet ut med makt fra Gym'ens område, blir han reddet av ingen ringere enn Flint, som er en god venn av Volkner. Han tar med våre venner for å treffe ham. Men Volkner nekter av mystiske årsaker å kjempe mot Ash. Flint forklarer senere at de var gode venner og et lag som barn, men Volkner mistet interessen i utfordrere da han ble Gym-leder. Og når Volkner fortsatt nekter å akseptere Ash sin utfordring, foreslås det at Flint kjemper mot Ash, noe han godtar – med Volkner som tilskuer. Kampen er intens, og Volkner blir påmint om seg selv som ung mann, som med engasjement kjempet side om side med Flint. Selv om Ash taper, imponerer hans pågangsmot Volkner så mye at han endelig aksepterer å kjempe mot Ash på Sunyshore-gym – fylt av en ny gnist for kamper!

Swedish Official Summary

När våra hjältar når fram till Sunyshore-gym för Ashs nästa Sinnoh Gym-strid upptäcker de att Gym-ledaren Volkner inte bara inte är tillgänglig, utan att Sunyshore-gym även ger bort Badges till alla utmanare utan att strida! Ash blir väldigt upprörd, och samtidigt som han med kraft kastas ut från Gym-anläggningen räddas han av ingen mindre än Flint från Elit Fyra. Flint är en god vän till Volkner och tar med våra hjältar för att träffa honom. Men underligt nog vägrar Volkner att strida mot Ash. Flint förklarar senare att de var goda vänner och ett team som barn men att Volkner tappade intresset för utmaningar när han blev Gym-ledare. Och när Volkner fortfarande vägrar att acceptera Ashs utmaning föreslår man att Flint strider mot Ash, vilket han går med på – och Volkner går med på att titta på. Striden är intensiv och Volkner blir påmind om hur det var när han själv var en ung man och utkämpade elektriserande strider vid Flints sida. Även om Ash förlorar imponerar hans uthållighet på Volkner så mycket att han slutligen går med på att strida mot Ash på Sunyshore-gym – med en nyfunnen glöd för strider!

Danish Official Summary

Da vores helte ankommer til Sunyshore-salen til Ash’ næste Sinnoh Sal-kamp, opdager de for det første, at Sal-lederen Volkner ikke står til rådighed, og for det andet, at Salen forærer Badges væk til enhver udfordrer helt uden kamp! Ash bliver meget vred, men da man vil smide ham ud fra Salens område med magt, bliver han reddet af ingen anden end Flint, fra Elite Four. Flint er en god ven af Volkner og tager vores helte med hen for at besøge ham. Men Volkner afslår på mystisk vis at dyste med Ash. Flint forklarer senere at de var gode venner og holdt sammen som børn, men at Volkner tabte interessen for udfordrere, da han først blev Sal-leder. Og da Volkner stadig nægter at modtage Ash’ udfordring, bliver det foreslået, at Flint dyster mod Ash, hvilket han går med til – med Volkner som tilskuer. Kampen er intens, og Volkner husker pludselig sig selv som ung mand, hvor han opildnet kæmpede side om side med Flint. Skønt Ash taber, imponerer han Volkner så meget med sin vedholdenhed, at denne omsider siger ja til at kæmpe med Ash i Sunyshore-salen..optændt af ny kampgejst!

01:41

Script Error

In the Japanese version, Hikari asks a rhetorical questioni about the Nagisa Tower. The English dub skips that part of her sentence.

Dawn: Hey, that must be the Sunyshore Tower.
Hikari: So this is the Nagisa Tower, the symbol of the city?
(ヒカリ): あれが街のシンボル ナギサタワーね。
06:20

Paint Edit

Volkner's nickname was different in the English dub as it didn't refer to Sunyshore in anyway where as the Japanese version included Nagisa.

Master: Everybody used to refer to Volkner as "The Shining, Shocking Star."
Master: Yeah. He even used to be called the "Thunder of Nagisa".
(マスター): あぁ。 かつてはナギサの雷と呼ばれるほどだった。
12:25

Script Error

During the battle, Volkner talks to the Master but in the English dub, Volkner doesn't specifically say the main reasons he was tired of battling was because he was fighting too many weak opponents and he was getting sick of doing that.

Volkner: I've fought countless weak challengers and they're all confident at first.
Denji: I've fought weak challengers to the point where I got sick of them.
(デンジ): オレは 飽きるほど弱いチャレンジャーと戦ってきたんだ。
13:04

Script Error

Ash's Infernape uses Mach Punch normally against Flint's Infernape but it gets blocked. Ash tells Infernape to use Mach Punch again which would only be one punch but in the Japanese version Satoshi tells Goukazaru to use Mach Punch continuously.

Ash: Use Mach Punch, once more!
Satoshi: Use Mach Punch continuously!
(サトシ): 連続で マッハパンチだ!
14:38

Paint Edit

Flint's Infernape is missing its tail right after it defeats Ash's Infernape. Various scenes throughout the episode show Flint's Infernape with a tail though.
19:00

Script Error

Dawn decides to just make a weird statement by telling Ash that he'd just battled an Elite Four member instead of congratulating him like she did in the Japanese version for doing his best against a superior opponent.

Dawn: You battled a member of the Elite Four.
Hikari: Considering you had an Elite Four member as your opponent, you were great!
(ヒカリ): いいバトルだったぞ。四天王相手にすごかったわ。

An all round aweful episode. Between the confusing Goukazaru vs Goukazaru battle to the overpowering battle of Satoshi's Pikachu vs Oba's Goukazaru showed bad form for the series as a whole. Satoshi was offered a position as a Battle Frontier brain, his Pikachu should have been able to defeat Oba's Goukazaru after his Buizel and Goukazaru managed to damage it.

The backstory was the only highlight in this episode as well as the similarities between Satoshi and Denji.

This was a great episode! The backstory of Denji and Oba was really interesting, and Satoshi's battle against Oba's Goukazaru was probably the best fight in the series so far.

Well, I agree with Sunain in that the battle, though "flashy", didn`t make much sense from a battling ability point of view. I did however, enjoy how they chose to draw various parallels bewteen Satoshii and Denzi, my favourite part probably being when Satoshi tells Pikachu not to give up, and Volkner sees himself in him. Hopefully the battle against Volkner will prove to be much less one-sided. It`s hard to imagine Goukazaru being more powerful than a Regice.

Just before the Chiisaki Mono played the dub music sounds like Vivaldi's 4 seasons. It's definitely not battle music and kind of kills the epicness of the scene. The also dub left out the MAIN reason Volkner wasn't battling anymore.

This episode made me realize how Ash is too overhyped and his persistence is annoying & frustrating at the same time.

Stop it, Ash. Be more like Miyuki from Smile Precure.
