Competition

The Pokémon Princess Doll set

Each Trainer must use exactly four Pokémon to battle. The contestants are split into two separate divisions, and the winner of each division proceeds to the finals. Additionally, every contestant wears a formal traditional Japanese outfit, usually a kimono and a hand-held fan. Before the actual competition, the contestants all stand in a row on stage as people gather to watch.

The prize for winning the competition is a brand new set of Pokémon Princess Dolls, and a photo with famous movie star Fiorella Cappuccino, who was also an announcer for the event.

Misty and Jessie both entered the competition with borrowed Pokémon, with Misty borrowing Ash's Pikachu and Bulbasaur, as well as Brock's Vulpix, and Jessie borrowing James's Weezing. Jessie also had Meowth participating in the event under her command, as well as her own Arbok.

The two contestants made it all the way to the final round, where they had a fierce battle. In the end, despite Jessie using her new Lickitung as an unexpected fourth Pokémon, Misty emerged victorious with Psyduck, winning the Pokémon doll collection, which she later sent to her sisters at the Cerulean Gym.
