Official DescriptionEdit

If you want to be the very best, you have to be the absolute worst. Guest-starring Brentalfloss!


The episode starts with Rusty's Zubat beaten by Level 72 Clefairy using pound in one hit. He comments on how quickly he was beaten compared to other trainers. His opponent, the EV Trainer, scoffs as if it should have been obvious, stating about Zubat's nature being garbage. Rusty is immediately interested to learn what nature is, but EV Trainer denounces it because EV training is like a super-secret art only for true Pokémon-Masters. Rusty guesses that EV Trainer may have many badges, but EV Trainer compares badges to extraordinary membership fields such as independent tournaments, most exclusive toy stores, and middle school gymnasiums. Hence, his Clefairy is buffed up with big muscles.

Rusty insists EV Trainer to teach him, but he doesn't know what EV means. After a long, difficult training in the classroom about the secret of effort values, Rusty notices that in his training none of it sounded like fun. Nevertheless, EV Trainer states that Pokémon is not about fun: it's about "math and winning" and like a "job that he doesn't get paid for". Angrily, Rusty finds out that it is close to school, seeing that a trainer himself doesn't want to learn educationally. EV Trainer then criticizes that Rusty won't have a Pokémon as strong as he has.

Team Rocket Grunts appear behind EV Trainer with a truck and kidnaps EV Trainer's Clefairy quickly. After the Team Rocket Grunts leave, EV Trainer freaks out on how many hours he spent on his Clefairy and Rusty figured that if he follows them he can rescue Pikachu and uses his bike to go after them. EV Trainer Trainer is too late to remind Rusty rate and subscribe his how-to videos. He kneels in agony.
