Debut Harley Rides Again

Wisteria Town (Japanese: モダマタウン Modama Town) is an anime-exclusive location in Potpourri Island in Kanto. Like many other towns in the region, it is home to a Contest Hall. It was first mentioned in Off the Unbeaten Path, when Nurse Joy told May that a Pokémon Contest was scheduled to take place there.

Wisteria Town Contest Hall

In the next episode, Ash and his friends arrived in Wisteria Town so that May could compete in the said Contest for her third Ribbon. She trained her Munchlax for the battle rounds as she wanted to use Squirtle in the appeals. Harley arrived and revealed that he too entered the Contest and was planning on winning.

In the Performance Stage, May was the first contestant to perform and sent out her Squirtle. It managed to perform very well, dazzling the audience and judges. After the other Pokémon got to perform, Harley entered the stage with Ariados and put on a scary appeal which shivered the audience. May and Harley managed to make it to the Contest Battles and went up against each other in the end.

During their match, Harley used his Octillery. It went up against Munchlax and scored an early advantage by stopping Munchlax from using moves that would require charging up. Munchlax surprised them with Metronome which stalled Octillery long enough to suffer damage. Octillery rested up however and was fully healed. Harley and Octillery were victorious in the end after the latter woke up and finished Munchlax off with Octazooka.
