The episode came and ended. Dawn VS Zoey in the Final Round was an amazing battle, and the combinations were amazing. The music really fits the battle, especially around the end for the final attack from the two. Dawn's comeback in the 2nd half of the contest was a nice move, but Zoey's tricks were quite clever at the beginning however.
Glameow and Gallade's Iron Tail and Signal Beam combination was quite a pretty sight. And also when Glameow uses it's tail to take Piplup's Whirpool, impressive! Gallade's Psycho Cut and Vacuum Wave were nice attacks, but also well used too.
Dawn's Togekiss' graceful moves were quite useful here too, having the ability to dodge a few attacks. Piplup was quite the battler too, having to see Hydro Pump again finally. Loved it when his Hydro Pump fired Glameow off of Togekiss in the air.
For spectators, I expected Jessie/Jessilina to watch (even from what she said to Dawn, to win the whole competition since she lost to Dawn). And then I saw Ursula and Nando in the audience, very cool to see both! During the battle, 4 awesome characters return onscreen while watching the Finals: Princess Salvia, Lila, Candice, Kenny!
Knew Salvia would watch, since she watches Dawn's contests and also gave Togekiss to her. Lila being Dawn's opponent in the Finals for the Celestic Contest, Candice being Zoey's best friend and supporter, and then Kenny being Dawn's childhood friend/coordinator, and also Finals opponent in the Floaroma/Sandalstraw Contest.
Now lastly, at the beginning as well, Johanna arrives and watches with Ash and Brock! Very awesome to see her at a event like this!
And at the final strike of the Finals, Piplup/Togekiss' Sky Attack Peck against Gallade's Electric Psycho Cut was quite the treat. The collision between the two attacks were very great! But all came to an end when the winner of the Grand Festival came to Zoey. BUT SOOOO CLOSE.
Zoey is our winner and Top Coordinator!
Quite funny of Jessie reacted badly to Dawn losing, and now Jessie got rid of her Jessilina costume, and ran out with James and Meowth; to head bad to their Team Rocket plans. But this is a shame, sad to see Jessilina coming to an end now.
Dawn and Zoey pulled off a great battle, and one not to forget. Dawn's words at the end, to her mom and Ash and Brock, were really touching. Im glad to see she wouldnt be too down about losing, shes really came a long way.
And at the end, when Dawn and Zoey are by the lake view, quite surprising to see Nando give a few words. Though it was great to see him then, and then we will see him at the Sinnoh League! But now comes an end to Zoey, heading back to Snowpoint City.
Dawn, and Piplup, Buneary, Pachirisu, Cyndaquil, Togekiss, all did very well this Grand Festival. But now comes an end to contests, it was a blast since 2002/2003. It's been really great.
