The episode opens with a recap over [[DP088|the past three episodes]] and explains the challenge introduced in [[DP090|the previous episode]]. [[Professor Rowan]] says that the last event will be athe triathlon[[Pokémon Triathlon]], and {{Ash}} get'sgets pumped up. He begins talking to {{an|Dawn}}, {{an|Brock}}, and [[Angie]] about how he'll will win, when Angie buts in that she'll win. Dawn has to separate the two and Ash wishes Angie good luck by extending his hand for a handshake. Angie [[MorpheusShipping|blushes]], remembering [[DP090|how Ash saved her]], and runs away. Ash is clueless as always about what just happened and begins prepping for the race. [[Conway]] pops up and has a talk with Dawn before running off as Rowan and [[Nurse Joy]] approach Ash and {{ashfr}}. Brock launches into the usual routine before {{TP|Brock|Croagunk}} stops him. Meanwhile, [[Jessie]] is busy getting pampered and reassures her team that they'll win while {{MTR}} and [[James]] continue their duties.
The race is about to start, so Dawn recalls {{TP|Dawn|Piplup}} and Angie recalls {{p|Shinx}}. An aide fires the starting pistol and Jessie quickly takes the lead. She easily reaches the first checkpoint and receives a {{p|Hippowdon}}. Jessie begins arguing with the aide over Hippowdon's {{stat|Speed}} while Ash and company reach the checkpoint. Ash, Dawn, Brock and Angie receive {{p|Spoink}}, {{p|Dodrio}}, {{p|Onix}}, and {{p|Ariados}} respectively and begin the first leg. Jessie finally starts out as other Trainers catch up and is propelled forward by Hippowdon's surprising speed. Back at the school, Rowan and the others monitor the race. With the race, Dawn has taken the lead with Ash closely following when Angie uses {{m|String Shot}} to propel herself into first. Picking up on this, many {{pkmn|Trainer}}s begin attacking each other. Conway takes advantage of this to pass them on {{p|Dugtrio}}.
In a practical dead heat, Ash and Angie reach the third checkpoint and return their Pokémon. Angie calls out Shinx and the third leg begins with both sprinting towards the end. Conway, Dawn, and Brock are approaching the end when Jessie speeds past them and reaches the third checkpoint. Conway quickly follows and Brock and Dawn follow from behind. Conway congratulates Jessie and somewhat creepily, begins to chase after her with {{p|Slowking}} as she tries to catch up to Ash and Angie. As Ash and Angie enter a cave, Jessie and Conway have managed to catch up with them and Jessie uses {{TP|Jessie|Seviper}} to attack them much to their and Conway's surprise. The ground beneath Ash and Angie begins to give way as Conway knocks out Seviper to slow Jessie down. Angie and Shinx barely manage to stop their fall by grabbing on a ledge, when Ash saves Angie again. Ash barely manages to pull Angie up and both sit down for a minute to catch their breath. Ash's relieved expression causes Angie to blush, but she quickly regains her composure when Ash point out that they have to make up a lot of ground and they begin racing again. Running at full speed, Ash and Angie quickly come close to the finish line where Jessie and Conway are exhaustively closing in. Seeing them approach, Jessie and Conway try to finish the race but due to their fighting, they are completely out of energy. Ash and Angie race for the finish and Ash wins by a nose. Ash begins celebrating while Angie has a moment of quiet thought. As other competitors cross the finish line, Conway and Jessie crawl across it and collapse.
The victory gave the Red team just enough points to win the challenge and all of the members receive a plaque after Rowan makes a quick speech. As a final celebration for the end of the [[{{pkmn|Summer School]]Academy}} a bonfire is lit and a buffet laid out. James and Meowth have a conversation about how they had a nice experience while Jessie stuffs her face and says goodbye to the students who waited on her hand and foot. Over by the gate, Angie is sitting, looking at the stars when Ash comes over. Angie asks Ash why he saved her, and Ash, clueless to her crush on him, replies that he is her friend, making her look a little disappointed. Angie and Ash end their rivalry on a note of friendship. In the morning, everyone bids goodbye to their friends and Ash and his friends wave to Angie before heading towards [[Celestic Town]] and Dawn's next [[Pokémon Contest]].
