Ash, Dawn, and Brock visited the town's Contest Hall to watch Zoey participating in the local Pokémon Contest. They arrived there late and were only able to see the final round, where Zoey faced off against a Coordinator named Rebecca. Using her Glameow against Rebecca's Shuckle, Zoey had trouble dealing with the Mold Pokémon's Withdraw. Eventually, Glameow managed to make its opponent come out of its shell with Shadow Claw and knock it out with Iron Tail. As a result, the Contest Judges ruled Battle Off for Shuckle, thus Zoey was declared the winner of the match.
After the battle, the Director of the Contest Committee, Mr. Contesta, awarded Zoey with the Brussel Ribbon, her fifth Contest Ribbon overall, which qualified her to compete in the Grand Festival. Zoey then asked him if she could say a few words, using the opportunity to thank her longtime friend Candice for her continued support. It was later revealed that Jessilina had also entered the Brussel Contest, but the position she finished in is unknown.

After Zoey's victory, Candice threw a party at the local Pokémon Center to celebrate her friend's entry into the Sinnoh Grand Festival. In the next day, both Zoey and Candice helped Dawn practice a new combination that she intended to use in the Daybreak Contest, which would follow the Double Performance format. Zoey and Dawn later had a Double Battle, with Zoey using her Leafeon and Kirlia against Dawn's Mamoswine and Cyndaquil. Zoey emerged victorious after Dawn's Pokémon were knocked out.
