English Official Summary

On day two in Malie City, our heroes look forward to battling at the Kantonian Gym—especially Ash! But first they have to complete a series of challenges on their way to the top of the Gym tower. Ash and Kiawe reach the top and meet Gym Leader Ryuki, who claims to be a rock-and-roll star. Ryuki’s unorthodox battle style is confusing, and Kiawe and Marowak are quickly left unable to battle. But when Ash’s challenge turns into a Double Battle, Rowlet learns Brave Bird just in time to help Meltan! Ash wins the battle and the Kantonian Gym badge…which Meltan proceeds to eat!

An ihrem zweiten Tag in Malihe City freuen sich unsere Helden darauf, in der Kanto-Arena zu kämpfen, allen voran Ash! Aber zuerst müssen sie eine Reihe von Herausforderungen bestehen, um an die Spitze des Arenaturms zu gelangen. Ash und Kiawe schaffen es ins oberste Stockwerk und treffen dort auf Arenaleiter Ryuki, der sich für einen Rock’n‘Roll Star hält. Ryukis unorthodoxer Kampfstil ist verwirrend und Kiawe und Knogga sind schon sehr bald kampfunfähig. Aber als Ashs Kampf zum Doppelkampf wird, kann Bauz gerade noch rechtzeitig Sturzflug lernen und seinem Freund Meltan zur Hilfe kommen. Ash gewinnt den Kampf und erhält den Kanto-Arenaorden, den sich Meltan sofort unter den Nagel reißt.

Ash vince la lotta e la medaglia della Palestra di Kanto... che Meltan non esita a divorare!

Satoshi and the others have come to the Gym of Kanto. Battle the Ninja Trainers and aim for the top floor of the building! Apparently you'll be able to battle the head of the gym on the top floor, but...
Also, a major announcement will be made during the episode?!

Summary:
As they continue their sightseeing tour of Malie City, Satoshi and his friends arrive at the Gym of Kanto! This is a place modeled after a Pokémon Gym from the Kanto region where you battle against Trainers dressed as ninjas, and if you win you get to continue to the next floor. Apparently you get to battle against the "head" of the Gym on the top floor, but... just what kind of person IS this head? And what kind of battle awaits?!
And there will also be a major announcement during the episode?! Make sure to watch all the way till the end!
