The second round of the Nimbasa Battle Tournament is underway. Georgia and her Pawniard appear to have the upper hand against Ash and his Snivy—but with a couple of well-placed attacks, Snivy pulls off an impressive upset, and Ash is into the semifinals!
Next up, it’s Cilan’s Stunfisk versus Luke’s Larvesta! At first, the filmmaker is nervous about going up against a Gym Leader, but when he confesses his fears, Cilan just can’t help offering his usual long-winded advice. Luke puts that advice to good use, defeating Cilan and advancing to the next round!
Up next, it’s Stephan and his new Pokémon Sawk against Iris and her Emolga. Powerful and unrelenting, Sawk puts up a furious battle, aggressively attacking again and again! Iris responds by asking Emolga to send in a barrage of Attracts, and eventually Sawk is overwhelmed and paralyzed. One final Volt Switch finishes things off, and Iris moves on!
The matchups are set for the top four: it’ll be Iris versus Luke and Ash against Dino in the semifinals, which are sure to be exciting!
