'''Battling a Cute Drama!''' (Japanese: '''チェリンボ!けなげなバトル!?''' ''{{tt|Cherinbo|Cherubi}}! A Brave Battle!?'') is the 125th episode of the {{series|Diamond & Pearl}}, and the 591st episode of the [[Pokémon anime]]. It first aired in Japan on April 30, 2009 and in the United States on September 26, 2009.
The episode begins with {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} traveling through a tunnel and when they emerge they receive a very cold welcoming, as they have now entered the snowy northern part of [[Sinnoh]]. Just ahead is [[Shelter Town]], the final stop before [[Snowpoint City]], so the gang decides to take a pit stop before moving on. While in a [[Pokémon Center]], Dawn asks after a package that is due to be delivered to her, however [[Nurse Joy]] informs her it hasn't arrived yet. To pass the time, Dawn lets {{TP|Dawn|Buneary}} out of her Poké Ball to let her have some fun with the other Pokémon. Then, a stranger comes racing for Buneary and starts to hug and play around with it chanting the phrase "so cute", the stranger is a girl called [[Marilyn]], who believes cute Pokémon are the best. She explains that her criteria for cuteness is that the Pokémon must be under 2 feet tall and must not have evolved, therefore Dawn introduces her {{TP|Dawn|Piplup}} to Marilyn to see if she think Piplup is cute or not. Despite the fact that he meets her requirements, Marilyn discourages the fact he's cute and starts to remark on the features that turns off Piplup's cuteness, thus enraging Dawn and causing Piplup to be paralyzed in shock. After calling Dawn "Dawny", claiming it was a cuter name than Dawn, Marilyn is challenged to a battle, which she accepts.
Brock sends out Croagunk while Marilyn sends out {{p|Chingling}}, and the battle restarts. Croagunk gains the upper hand against Chingling, this is all however a act played out by Marilyn to see Chingling take the attacks, Dawn then tells her to get to the point with Marilyn hastily obeying. Marilyn orders Chingling to use {{m|Growl}} along with {{m|Confusion}} and Croagunk is almost knocked out. Brock isn't willing to give up and encourages Croagunk to get up, and not wanting to let Brock down it does and uses {{m|Brick Break}}, defeating Chingling. Brock tells how any Pokémon can be valiant regardless of their looks, unless the Trainer bonds with their Pokémon. The two then return their Pokémon, with Brock congratulating Croagunk on an excellent battle.
With the lesson taught by Brock, she switches a Poké Ball containing a cute Pokémon for another Pokémon, which her friends mocked her for thinking it was her cutest Pokémon and thus changed her team to fit their perception. She then sends it out revealing it to be a {{p|Shellder}}, shocking Meowth and Jessie who are peeking from outside. Brock sends out Happiny, however Jessie and Meowth interrupts and tells Marilyn how disappointed they are with Shellder, then James starts to go into Marilyn's bag and steal two Poké Balls contain Cherubi and Chingling, angering Marilyn who orders Shellder to use {{m|Brine}} to catapult itself to Team Rocket. After being hit by Shellder and dropping the two balls, Marilyn orders Shellder to use {{m|Ice Beam}} causing Team Rocket to be frozen rock solid, Happiny uses {{m|Pound}} to send Team Rocket Blastingblasting off.
At the end of the day, Dawn receives the package from [[Johanna|her mother]]. Inside is some clothing and a letter from Johanna telling Dawn that as Snowpoint City is very cold she has sent some winter clothing for her, Ash and Brock. Ash and Brock receive very snazzy thick blue jackets while Dawn receives a gorgeous pink coat, new boots and a scarf. Marilyn remarks on how great they look, and now ready to brave the cold weather the gang prepare to head into Snowpoint City so Ash can battle for his seventh Sinnoh [[badgeBadge|Gym Badge]]...
