Piplup, Pansage, and a Meeting of the Times! (Japanese: ポッチャマVSヤナップ！華麗なるバトル！！Pochama VS Yanappu! The Magnificent Battle!!) is the 86th episode of the Best Wishes series, and the 743rd episode of the Pokémon anime. It first aired Japan on June 28, 2012 and in the United States on November 3, 2012.
After they land, Ash sees a red spot, which he thinks it's a Staryu. The gang sees the Staryu, when Meloetta quietly appears. Ash says that he's here for the Junior Cup, and they are going to win, get stronger, and then participate in the Unova League. While they are speaking, Cynthia 's butler, Jervis arrives, telling them to go to Cynthia's villa with his car. Suddenly, Team Rocket appears, saying that Meloetta is quietly following Ash and his friends. When it's time to go, Meloetta sneaks in Jervis's car, following Ash and friends to Cynthia's villa.
On the way, when Cilan is speaking to Cynthia, Ash saw Rattata, when suddenly Meloetta appears and sits on Ash's lap. Seeing Ash, Meloetta seems very excited, when Cynthia says that Meloetta must really like Ash, so that's why Meloetta keeps following Ash around. A while later, they arrive at Cynthia's villa, but when Jervis opens the villa's door, Meloetta suddenly disappears again...
Ash calls out for it to come back, but it doesn't come back. Iris says it'll come back later, and Cynthia says that it must surely be shy. The gang then goes into Cynthia's villa and when Ash gets to the living room, someone suddenly sneaks up on Ash and Pikachu and tap Ash's shoulder. Iris and Cilan just stand there wondering whats happening, and Ash turns around and sees Dawn! Ash is surprised and they exchange greetings and then give each other a high five.
However, unlike the first two, Dawn doesn't reappear in new clothing or with a change in her team.
However, from Ash's point of view, Dawn's team has changed since Dawn's Cyndaquil has evolved into a Quilava. Also, from the perspective of the English dub, she does have a change in her team as the dub skipped SS024.
This marks the first appearance of Dawn's Quilava in the English dub, since the episode it evolved in never aired.
