Important Characters: Kite (Shane), Volt (Volt)
Important Places: Crossgate Town (Crossgate Town)
and his friends arrive in Crossgate Town, where a competition known as
the Pokeringer Convention is being held. A young boy named Kite
tells our heroes that the Pokeringer competition has trainers compete
with their flying pokemon against three other trainers to grab a ring
floating from a balloon. They then have to deliver the ring to a
goal, all while avoiding the attacks of the other pokemon.
Satoshi and Haruka decide that the competition sounds like a lot of
fun, so they enter their flying pokemon Subame and Agehanto.
Kojirou, who's been listening in the whole time, decides to enter as
well, revealing that he was trained by a Pokeringer master once.
The competition begins, and Kite is called up to participate in the
first block. After Kite wins, Satoshi's block comes next.
Satoshi wins against the defending champion named Volt, so Kojirou and
Haruka are left to face off against two others trainers in the third
block. Haruka thinks she'll be able to win easily, but Kojirou
shocks everyone by being really skilled and winning the block! As
the competition continues, Kojirou and Satoshi keep advancing until
they arrive at the final round, where they are to face each
other. The match begins, but a sandstorm suddenly appears and
surrounds the ring! Satoshi decides not to wait and orders his
Subame to head straight into the whirlwind, where the pokemon's
determination to win triggers its evolution into Ohsubame! The
newly evolved pokemon is able to grab the ring and deliver it to the
goal, earning Satoshi the grand prize! Now that the competition
is over, Satoshi and his friends continue their journey.
dubbed version has a somewhat understandable paint edit, but other than
that it's the same old same old.

is trimmed from the shot immediately following it.
"Taillow! Now use Wing!"
obvious to us fans is that "Wing," by itself, isn't the name of an
attack. My guess is that whoever wrote that line thought that it
was "Wing attack"
instead of "Wing Attack"
and that the second word was optional, so they just dropped it.

surprised that 4Kids went to the trouble to fix this sign when they
didn't bother to fix the more Engrish sounding "All the past ChampionS"
earlier in the episode.
