{{Incomplete synopsis}}
Going back home, {{an|Dawn}} and her friends arrive in time for the [[Twinleaf Festival|Twinleaf Town Festival]] where a {{pkmn|Contest}} will be held. Dawn will be facing her mother [[Johanna]]. Who will win?
 
Dawn leads her friends to her house as Dawn is clearly excited, busting in. Johanna meets her, as well as Ash and Brock, with her {{TP|Johanna|Glameow}} and {{p|Umbreon}} in tow. Johanna meets Piplup as the Penguin {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} tries to meet Glameow, but it gets a cold shoulder, the same with Umbreon. A girl, [[Noelle]], walks down the stairs with her {{p|Bellossom}}. She finished setting up the rooms for Ash and Brock, being there to enroll in Johanna's {{pkmn|Coordinator}} class. Dawn shows her the four ribbons she has earned, but Brock pulls her aside and makes his usual advances to Noelle. He gets {{m|Poison Jab|shut down}} not just by {{TP|Brock|Croagunk}}, but Bellossom as well with {{m|Stun Spore}}, Croagunk dragging him away.
 
Ash checks out the trophies and pictures on the wall as Dawn fills him in about her mother's career. Dawn then decides to challenge her mother to a Contest {{pkmn|battle}}, which she agrees to, but they decide to eat first sicne the food was freshly prepared. Ash shows some informal excitement, but Johanna lets it slide as she asks Noelle to show Ash and Brock their rooms. Meanwhile, [[Team Rocket]] sits by a lake, [[fishing]] for {{p|Goldeen}} under [[Sayer]]'s term. Sayer is disappointed that they have not caught any Goldeen, which is needed for a festival activity. Team Rocket reveals they that are doing it mainly for [[Pokémon Dollar|money]] since they are broke.
 
Meanwhile, everyone sits down for lunch at Dawn's home. Johanna compliments Brock on his cooking ability that Dawn told her about. Glameow and Umbreon enjoy Brock's [[Pokémon food]], whilch pleases her since they are picky eaters. Noelle asks Brock for his recipe, which puts him into a romantic advance before Bellossom and Croagunk stop him. Dawn and Johanna clean the dishes as Ash talks to [[Professor Oak]] over the videophone, giving the {{pkmn|Trainer}} advice about learning from Johanna. Dawn and Johanna join the conversation as they learn that Professor Oak is on his way to attend the festival. Then, {{Delia|Ash's mother}} joins the conversation as her and Johanna. Delia even pokes fun at Ash a little bit. Meanwhile, Team Rocket starts reeling in Pokémon, but not the right ones, forced to toss them back.
 
In the garden, Brock and {{TP|Brock|Happiny}} tend to the flowers, getting positive reviews from Johanna and Noelle. Johanna and Dawn decide to have their battle, but Izzy, Cara and Sayer meet up with Johanna, still trying to work out food booth placement. Although Johanna solves the problem at first, Izzy and Cara continue to vacillate, forcing Johanna to postpone the battle and get more involved.
 
Ash and {{AP|Pikachu}} decide to take a walk while Dawn works on her strategy. Ash wanders into the forest as he spots a group of {{p|Sunflora}} absorbing rays. Pikachu follows a {{p|Ledyba}}, stubling on a flower and sneezing. As Ash approaches a tree, a young boy calls him over. Ash meets [[Nathaniel]] as he tells Ash that he planted [[Honey]] on that tree. Ash lets him hug Pikachu as he reveals his passion to become a Trainer. They notice a {{p|Heracross}} on the tree. Seeing Nathaniel, Ash thinks about how he used to be young and always wanted to always spend time with Pokémon, noting that being a Trainer is a great priviledge. Nathaniel wants to specialize in {{type|Bug}}s as they watch Heracross leave. Ash starts telling him tales of his journey, starting with his {{AP|Heracross}} and {{AP|Bulbasaur}}.
 
Back at Dawn's house, Dawn plans with Piplup and {{TP|Dawn|Pachirisu}}, setting up two combinations. Pachirisu runs over to the [[Television|tv]] as Dawn notices a bunch of clipped newspaper articles about all of Dawn's Contests that Johanna preserved. Johanna returns as they get to the battle, [[Double battle|two on two]] with Piplup and Pachirisu against Glameow and Umbreon. Brock shows his romance towards Noelle constantly, but Belossom and Croagunk keep him in check. Dawn goes first with {{m|Whirlpool}} and {{m|Discharge}}, creating the electrified whrilpool. Johanna's Pokémon use {{m|Quick Attack}} to gracefully dodge, crossing each other's paths and creating an appeal before stopping and launching a double {{m|Shadow Ball}}, destroying the Whrilpool and knocking {{cat|Dawn's Pokémon}} down. Dawn's Pokémon get up as they invoke their first plan. Piplup fires {{m|BubbleBeam}}. Though Johanna's Pokémon dodge, the attack creates a wall, masking Pachirisu until the last moment, hitting both with a spinning {{m|Super Fang}}. Dawn celebrates the successful plan, but Johanna makes her pay for her premature celbration by using a double {{m|Attract}}, {{status|Infatuation|infatuating}} both of Dawn's Pokémon before hitting them with a double {{m|Swift}} Attack, [[Unable to battle|knocking them out]]. Dawn is somewaht upset but accepts the defeat, comforting her Pokémon. Still, Johanna was still impressed at her strategy and [[Happiness|her bond]] with her Pokémon. It also inspires Ash to take a note from the battle. Meanwhile, Team Rocket has managed to catch many Goldeen. They keep going for more as [[Jessie]] pulls a {{p|Gyarados}} out of the water, sending them blasting off with a {{m|Hyper Beam}} strike.
