Immediately afterwards is the battle between [[Luke]] and {{an|Iris}}. Luke looks over to find {{an|Bianca}} filming his {{TP|Luke|Zorua}} when he had asked her to film his battle. He turn turns his attention back to the battle and sends out his {{p|Golett}} while Iris confidently sends {{TP|Iris|Axew}} into battle. Iris commands Axew to use {{m|Scratch}}. However, Golett took no damage due to its partial {{t|Ghost}} typing, making {{type|Normal}} attacks useless. Golett counterattacks by using {{m|Mega Punch}}, landing a direct hit. Axew then tries to attack with {{m|Dragon Rage}}, while Golett uses {{m|Double Team}}, causing Dragon Rage to miss its mark. Luke commands his Pokémon to use {{m|Gyro Ball}} while its two other copies do the same. Axew manages to keep an eye on the upcoming attacks until two of them spin in opposite directions, making Axew confused. The three attacks hit the Tusk Pokémon at the same time but Axew is still standing. Iris sees an opportunity to attack and commands Axew to use Dragon Rage again. Luke tells Golett to use {{m|Shadow Ball}}, as its copies disappear and it forms a dark, purple ball in its hands. Golett throws it towards Axew as the two attacks collide into each other and a giant explosion is created.
Luke tells his Golett to use Gyro Ball once more as Iris tells Axew to run from it. Golett continues to chase Axew for a while until Axew stumbles over, exhausted from running. As Golett closes in on Axew, Iris dramatically yells Axew's name. Golett is surprisingly thrown up into the air while Axew stands with a bright red aura around it. When Golett reaches the ground, Axew angrily attacks it continuously with punches and powerful kicks. One kickof Axew's kicks sends Golett flyinginto backwardsthe andair. smashingGolett againstthen thesmashes border wall ofagainst the arena,'s knockingborder itwall and outfaints. The judge announces Iris the winner and will be advancing to the final round against Ash. She rushes towards her PokémonAxew and congratulates him on learning {{m|Outrage}} as Axew begins to sleep.
Afterwards, everyone heads back to the Pokémon Center and Luke is shocked to discover all the footage Bianca shot was of his Zorua. Bianca shrugs off her actions and offers Zorua handmade accessories as gifts, and partial bribery to become her Trainer. Zorua refuses these gifts, and Luke reminds Bianca that he's not interested in trading away his star actress. Luke then remembers that he should interview Ash and Iris, the finalists, for his film. In the dining room, [[Cilan]] presents his friends and their Pokémon with their dinner which he was permitted to make in the Pokémon Center's kitchen to celebrate Ash and Iris's victories. During their meal, [[Burgundy]] approached Cilan and challenged him to a Connoisseur Showdown to evaluate his prowess as a [[Pokémon Connoisseur|connoisseur]]. He rejected the invitation at first, but then noticed Luke behind Burgundy filming their conversation. Cilan could not hold back putting on a performance for the camera, and immediately accepted Burgundy's challenge with confidence. The change in personality startled Burgundy, and [[Stephan]] appeared behind them and volunteered to be their referee. Meanwhile, Team Rocket is hiding out in one of the Ferris Wheel's carriages in [[Nimbasa City]], reviewing their newest plan. Meowth mentions there is one thing left to be taken care of and he will take care of it.
