Featured Duel: Yuya Sakaki vs. Chojiro Tokumatsu

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 2: Yuya
Yuya Sets "Performapal Teeter Totter Hopper" (100/1200).

Turn 3: Chojiro
As "Flower Cardian Lightshower" was Synchro Summoned with "Flower Cardian Willow with Calligrapher", "Flower Cardian Pine with Crane", "Flower Cardian Zebra Grass with Moon" and "Flower Cardian Paulownia with Phoenix", Chojiro can choose not to draw a card during his Draw Phase. "Lightshower" attacks and destroys "Teeter Totter Hopper".

Turn 4: Yuya
Yuya draws "Performapal Hip Hippo". The effect of "Lightshower" activates as Yuya drew a card, inflicting 1500 damage to him (Yuya: 2500 → 1000 LP). He Sets "Hip Hippo".

Turn 5: Chojiro
Chojiro chooses to skip his Draw Phase with the effect of "Lightshower". "Lightshower" attacks and destroys "Hip Hippo" (800/800).

Turn 6: Yuya
Yuya draws "Performapal Rain Goat". The effect of "Lightshower" activates, but Yuya activates the effect of "Rain Goat" to reduce the damage to 0 by sending it to the Graveyard. Yuya activates the effect of "Teeter Totter Hopper" from the Graveyard, since he sent a card from his hand to the Graveyard, while it was in the Graveyard. This allows him to Special Summon "Teeter Topper Hopper" (100/1200) from the Graveyard in Defense Position. As "Teeter Totter Hopper" was Special Summoned by its own effect, it cannot be destroyed by battle once per turn.

Turn 7: Chojiro
Chojiro draws "Super Koi Koi". As Chojiro drew a card, the effects of "Lightshower" are negated. He activates "Super Koi Koi", which allows him to draw three cards and reveal them. If they are "Flower Cardian" monsters, he can Special Summon them, but their Levels become 2 and their ATK and DEF become 0. If non-"Flower Cardian" monsters are drawn, he has to send them to the Graveyard and take 1000 damage for each card. Chojiro draws and subsequently Special Summons "Flower Cardian Clover with Boar" (1000/1000), "Flower Cardian Maple with Deer" (1000/1000) and "Flower Cardian Peony with Butterfly" (1000/1000) via this effect ("Peony with Butterfly": CG Star 6 → 2, 1000/1000 → 0/0; "Maple with Deer": CG Star 10 → 2, 1000/1000 → 0/0; and "Clover with Boar": CG Star 7 → 2, 1000/1000 → 0/0). He tunes his Level 2 "Clover with Boar" and "Maple with Deer" with the Level 2 Tuner monster "Peony with Butterfly" to Synchro Summon the Level 6 "Flower Cardian Boardefly" (2000/2000) in Attack Position. "Lightshower" attacks "Teeter Totter Hopper", which cannot be destroyed by battle once per turn. "Boardeefly" attacks and destroys "Teeter Totter Hopper". Its effect inflicts piercing battle damage (Yuya: 1000 → 200 LP).

Turn 8: Yuya
Yuya draws and subsequently activates "Pendulum Storm", which allows him to destroy the monsters in his Pendulum Zones and then destroy a Spell or Trap Card his opponent controls. Yuya destroys "Timegazer Magician" and "Performapal Bit Bite Turtle" in his Pendulum Zones, and then destroys "Fraud Freeze". He then activates "Performapal Sellshell Crab" (Right Pendulum Scale 2) and "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon" (Left Pendulum Scale 4) in his Pendulum Zones. Yuya Pendulum Summons "Timegazer Magician" (1200/600) and "Bit Bite Turtle" (800/1200) from his Extra Deck, both in Attack Position. "Bit Bite Turtle" attacks "Lightshower" and is destroyed. As "Bit Bite Turtle" was destroyed by battle, its effect destroys the monster that destroyed it. "Lightshower" is destroyed. Yuya activates the Pendulum Effect of "Odd-Eyes", which reduces any damage he would receive when a Pendulum Monster he controls battles to 0. He activates the Pendulum Effect of "Sellshell Crab", which allows him to Special Summon a monster from his Pendulum Zone when a Pendulum Monster he controls is destroyed and sent to the Extra Deck. Yuya Special Summons "Odd-Eyes" (2500/2000). "Odd-Eyes" attacks "Boardeefly", but Chojiro activates his face-down "Fraud Check," which prevents "Flower Cardian" monsters he controls from being destroyed by battle. The effect of "Odd-Eyes" doubles any battle damage to the opponent when it battles a Level 5 or higher monster (Chojiro: 4000 → 3000 LP). Yuya activates the Quick-Play Spell Card, "Pendulum Climax", which allows him to Tribute a Pendulum Monster he controls and equip a monster from his opponent's Graveyard to a Pendulum Monster that battled this turn, with the equipped monster gaining ATK equal to half the ATK of the monster equipped to it and gaining an additional attack this turn. Yuya Tributes "Timegazer Magician" to equip "Flower Cardian Cherry Blossom with Curtain" to "Odd-Eyes". ("Odd-Eyes": 2500 → 3500). "Odd-Eyes" attacks "Boardeefly" (Chojiro: 3000 → 0 LP).
