- Go-Karting with Bowser: James enters the Pokéringer tournament. And no disguises, either, so Ash and May identify him on the spot. He actually does good enough to land 2nd place, too.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: To May's utter shock, James ordered Dustox to ride Beautifly's Gust for an easy goal.
- Out-Gambitted: It turns out that Volt, the previous champion, powers through the competition with his Volbeat's Thunder. Unfortunately for him, Ash's Taillow can shrug off electric attacks.
- Took a Level in Badass: Taillow finally evolves in mid-battle against Dustox. From here on out, Swellow will become one of Ash's heavy-hitters for the rest of the AG saga.
