Double-Time Battle Training!
Before arriving at Daybreak Town and Dawn’s next Pokémon Contest, our heroes stop by the Brussel Town Pokémon Contest already in progress. At the contest, Zoey wins her fifth Ribbon, which allows her to compete in the Grand Festival! After a big party that their old friend Candice throws in Zoey’s honor, Dawn decides she needs to come up with a new move to use in the upcoming Double Battle round of her next Contest. Frustration soon sets in, as she can’t seem to get the inspiration to come up with a fresh idea. And that’s when her friend—and rival—Zoey offers to help. With the rest of our heroes cheering them on, as well as some additional help from the Snowpoint Gym Leader Candice, Dawn does some creative visualization and comes up with an ingenious Fire- and Ice-type combination move, which she dubs “Flame Ice.” The move appears to be working perfectly...until it sputters out right before it is able to make contact with Zoey’s Leafeon and Kirlia. Not to be discouraged, Dawn promises to have the move down pat before her next Contest. Our heroes bid goodbye to their friends as they confidently set out toward Dawn’s next Contest, as well as Ash’s next Gym Battle.
