Presenter: Good morning contestants, minus Arbok. Welcome to Canalave City and to the Canalave City Gym, where your third battle and thirteenth challenge overall will take place. Usual rules apply â€“ if four of you can win the battle then weâ€™ll add 15,000 to the prize fund, which currently stands at 71,000. Your battle today will be against a Bronzor. For once, weâ€™re going to let you choose the order in which you battle. Who wants to go first? â€¦ nobody?
Toxicroak: I will.
Aipom: Actually, I will.
Toxicroak: I said it first.
Aipom: I thought it first.
Toxicroak: I wanted it first.
Aipom: Iâ€™m first alphabetically.
Presenter: Toxicroak, you shall go first, Aipom you can battle second. Toxicroak, please proceed to the battle arena.
Four out of the remaining five contestants will now need to defeat the Bronzor in order to pass the challenge, and up next is Aipom. Aipom starts off the battle by using Agility, whilst Bronzor uses another Psychic attack. Aipom shakes off the damage and uses Screech, whilst Bronzor replies using Hypnosis. Aipom falls asleep and Bronzor takes the opportunity to use Gyro Ball. Aipom is certainly weakening, but suddenly wakes up and with a strong Fire Punch attack, manages to knock out Bronzor.
Next up is Snover. Snover starts the battle off using Ice Shard, while Bronzor uses Faint Attack. Snover then tries a Powder Snow attack, which does a steady amount of damage to Bronzor, who responds with a strong Gyro Ball attack. Being super effective it deals a strong amount of damage to Snover who looks dazed, giving Bronzor the opportunity to launch another Gyro Ball attack. Snover jumps out of the way and launches a Sheer Cold attack at Bronzor. The attack misses and one last Gyro Ball from Bronzor knocks out Snover.
The contestants now have no more room for error, and Pikachu is next up to battle. Pikachu starts off with a Thunderbolt attack â€“ itâ€™s a critical hit and deals a lot of damage to Bronzor. Bronzor responds with a Psychic attack, but a quick Discharge reply from Pikachu is enough to knock out Bronzor. Two victories from two battles still needed.
Next up is Buneary. Buneary starts the battle off with a Jump Kick, which lands a critical hit on Bronzor. Bronzor is dazed but recovers quickly and uses Hypnosis. Buneary dodges and uses Dizzy Punch, which confuses Bronzor, who then hurts itself out of damage. One Fire Punch attack is then enough from Buneary to knock out Bronzor.
Itâ€™s all down toâ€¦ Mime Jr. Oh, happy days. Bronzor starts out using Hypnosis but the attack misses. Mime Jr. uses Light Screen and when Bronzor again uses Hypnosis, Mime Jr. dodges and uses Copycat. The returned Hypnosis attack sends Bronzor to sleep, and two Signal Beam attacks from Mime Jr. are enough to knock out Bronzor! The contestants have passed the challenge.
Presenter: Congratulations contestants, four of you needed to beat Bronzor and four of you have beaten Bronzor. The challenge is won and thatâ€™s another 15,000 for the prize fund, taking your total to 86,000. Your next challenge isâ€¦ a big one, and will take place tomorrow. You are to gather at the harbour tomorrow morning, where you will be given further instructions. Iâ€™ll see you there.
Buneary: Neither Mime Jr. or Pikachu did much suspicious today. Iâ€™m surprised Toxicroak went down so easily though, especially having volunteered first. It put a lot of pressure on the rest of usâ€¦ yeah.
Mime Jr.: Mimey doesnâ€™t think itâ€™s Arbok anymore ;-;
Pikachu: Snover getting beaten today has done nothing to dampen my sneaky suspicion about him. But with every elimination that comes and goes in which Mime Jr. doesnâ€™t get eliminatedâ€¦ that amazes me. I mean look at her. Sheâ€™s more sensitive than a new born baby.
Snover: I admit being a little embarrassed that I was beaten by a Bronzor that both Buneary and Mime Jr. were able to defeat. No harm done though. No clues to the PokéMole to be found today though, I donâ€™t think.
Toxicroak: I think itâ€™s actually important to note that Buneary was very lucky to win her battle today. She could have easily been trying to throw it.
Days 14 and 15
Presenter: Good morning contestants â€“ another nice early start for you today. In a minute we shall be catching a boat destined for Iron Island. Your challenge for today is called Lost and is worth up 20,000 if you succeed in it. The money you can win in this challenge is located somewhere deep inside the Iron Island Cave. The challenge will only be passed if all 6 of you are present at the shore we will be docking at later today at sunrise tomorrow â€“ yes thatâ€™s right; you will be staying the night here. If all 6 of you are here at sunrise, you will win however much money you have with you at the time â€“ as I said, up to 20,000. I am also going to give you three envelopes. Envelope 1 contains further instructions which you are to open as soon as you arrive on Iron Island. Envelope 2 can also be opened then. Envelope 3 must not be opened until this challenge is over. Now, if youâ€™d all like to follow me, we shall board the ship.
Aipom: Mime Jr., give me the first envelope, I want to open it.
Mime Jr.: ;-;
Toxicroak: Buneary, give me the second envelope, I want to open it.
Buneary: Ermâ€¦ erâ€¦ ;-;
Toxicroak: Letâ€™s seeâ€¦ it says: Contestants, somewhere inside the Iron Island Cave is an exemption card. Should a contestant be carrying this exemption card at the end of the challenge, he or she will win an exemption into Episode 6. But remember: all contestants must be at the shore by sunrise in order to pass the challenge.
Snover: Well we do have all night, so I think once weâ€™ve found the money anyone wanting the exemption could go and look for it.
Aipom: Like you?
Snover: Wellâ€¦ possibly, yeah. Depends how much time we have left at the end. Come on, letâ€™s start looking for the money.
Pikachu: Itâ€™s gonna take us longer to get all this to the shore than it takes the Admins to get up in the morning.
Snover: Well we can all remember the way canâ€™t we? Itâ€™s just going to take quite a few return journeysâ€¦
Mime Jr.: But Mimey is tired ;-;
Snover: Is anybody else going looking for this exemption? I am.
Pikachu: I certainly think itâ€™s worth it.
Aipom: Well if youâ€™re going Iâ€™m going. No way youâ€™re getting an exemption over me. Neither of you deserve one.
Toxicroak: If Aip-bumâ€™s going then so am I.
Buneary: So ermâ€¦ erâ€¦ fancy a game of Noughts and Crosses?
Snover: I searched the cave from top to bottom and couldnâ€™t find it â€“ thought I could probably do with some sleep. Even if itâ€™s only an hour or so.
Pikachu: I just lost track of where I was. Itâ€™s worse than the Mirror Maze in there.
Snover: Did either of you find it?
Toxicroak: No sign of the wretched thing.
Aipom: I saw it. It was on the ground level in the dust â€“ I saw it from one of the bridges. Couldnâ€™t work out how to get to it though.
Buneary: Have you ermâ€¦ erâ€¦ been searching all night?
Aipom: Actually we both got back about 45 minutes ago. Neither of us wanted to be the first back of us both. We decided on a draw.
Presenter: WELL CONTESTANTS, YOUâ€™VE GOT ALL 500 BAGS AND THERE ARE 6 OF YOU THERE, SO CONGRATULATIONS, THE CHALLENGE HAS BEEN PASSED. YOUR PRIZE FUND IS NOW 106,000. Iâ€™LL BE STAYING HERE NOW WAITING YOU TAKE YOU ALL TO THE NEXT ELIMINATION. YOUR INSTRUCTIONS ARE IN THE THIRD ENVELOPE YOU WERE GIVEN YESTERDAY. YOUR CHALLENGE HAS BEGUN.
Aipom: Erm, challenge? He didnâ€™t mention a challenge. Silly man.
Toxicroak: He said the details were in the third envelope, moron.
Mime Jr.: Mimey wants to read this one.
Aipom: Forget it, give it here.
Mime Jr.: MIMEY IS READING IT ;-;
Mime Jr.: Your next challenge is called "Sails Away" and is worth 20,000 if you succeed. Somewhere - along the beach this time â€“ there is a dinghy and foot pump. You have 90 minutes to reach me at the boat, and the challenge will be passed if all 6 of you reach the boat within this 90 minutes. But be warned â€“ if any contestant gets wet above the waist, the challenge will be failed.
Snover: Weâ€™d better get started looking for the dinghy then.
Mime Jr.: Itâ€™s got a hole in it ;-;
Snover: Itâ€™s only a small one.
Aipom: Itâ€™s a HOLE. Whether itâ€™s big or small, water still sort of goes through it!
Snover: So weâ€™ll need to empty the water out as we sail across. As long as we donâ€™t capsize weâ€™ll be fine.
Presenter: Good to see you again contestants â€“ a very brave effort, but youâ€™ve failed this challenge and the prize fund at the end of this episode is 106,000. Youâ€™re all tired, wet and smell a bit as well to be honest, so weâ€™re going to transport you all to Jubilife City where you can freshen up a bit. But donâ€™t get too settled. The fifth elimination is tonight.
