|This article is about an episode of the Pokémon anime that has not been dubbed into English. As such, its coverage may contain romanized Japanese names, rather than dub names.|
(Japanese: サトシとハルカ！ホウエンでの熱きバトル！！ Satoshi and Haruka! Heated Battles of Hoenn!!) is the 120th episode of Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire, and the 394th episode of the Pokémon anime. It was first broadcast in Japan on March 24, 2005.
In the first Pokémon clip show, Ash and his friends are still on the boat headed towards Slateport City, where May aims to win the title of Top Coordinator. In the meantime, Ash and May recollect memories from their journey together through the Hoenn region.
Having acquired the eight needed Badges to enter the Hoenn League Championships, Ash remembers the Gym battles he faced to get to this point, while May remembers the Contest Battles that earned her the five Ribbons required to compete in the Hoenn Grand Festival.
