"Raring To Go", known as "5 Polymers! V-to-Z" in the Japanese version, is the fourth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh GX anime. It first aired in Japan October 27, 2004 and in the United States on October 13, 2005.
A fleet of naval vessels is making it's way towards Duel Academy, with the captain of the lead vessel stating that they are delivering a new batch of cards for the Academy's card shop.
It's the day of promotion exams. Students of the same dorm will Duel each other, with the winner possibly being allowed to advance to the next dorm up. A written test comes first, then the practical exam. Jaden Yuki is late for the exam, and encounters an old woman attempting to push her van up the hill towards Duel Academy. He stops to aide her. The new cards arrive, but all are bought by a single individual. The owner of the card shop, Ms. Dorothy, gives Jaden a few cards she saved as repayment for helping her with her van earlier.
The figure who bought all the cards is Dr. Crowler. He decides to give the cards to Chazz Princeton, and reveals he will pull some strings so that Jaden and Chazz will face each other in the practical exams rather than someone from their own dorms. The Duel begins, and Chazz gains an early advantage with the "VWXYZ" series, while Jaden plays defense. Ultimately Jaden wins using the "Transcendent Wings" card he got from Ms. Dorothy, which lets him evolve "Winged Kuriboh" into "Winged Kuriboh LV10". Chancellor Sheppard intended to promote Jaden to Ra Yellow but he declines, preferring to stay at the red dorm instead.
Turn 2: Chazz Chazz draws "Magical Mallet" and subsequently activates it to shuffe it and four other cards from his hand into his Deck and draw five new cards. One of the drawn cards is "Magical Mallet", so Chazz activates the latter card again to shuffle it and two other cards into his Deck and draw three new cards (One of which "V-Tiger Jet"). Chazz Normal Summons "V-Tiger Jet" (1600/1800) in Attack Position. He then activates the Continuous Spell Card "Frontline Base". Now once a turn, during Chazz's Main Phase, he can Special Summon a Level 4 or lower Union monster from his hand. Using the effect of "Frontline Base", he Special Summons "W-Wing Catapult" (1300/1500) in Attack Position. Chazz then removes his two monsters from play in order to Special Summon "VW-Tiger Catapult" (2000/2100) in Attack Position. He then activates the effect of "VW-Tiger Catapult" to discard a card ("Y-Dragon Head") and switch "Clayman" to Attack Position. "VW-Tiger Catapult" attacks and destroys "Clayman" (Jaden 4000 → 2800). Chazz then Sets a card.
Turn 3: Jaden
Jaden draws. He then Normal Summons "Elemental Hero Sparkman" (1600/1400) in Defense Position and Sets a card.
Turn 4: Chazz
Chazz draws. He then Normal "X-Head Cannon" (1800/1500) in Attack Position. Using the effect of "Frontline Base", Chazz Special Summons "Z-Metal Tank" (1500/1300) in Attack Position. He then activates his face-down "Call of the Haunted" to Special Summon "Y-Dragon Head" (1500/1600) from his Graveyard in Attack Position. Chazz then removes "X-Head Cannon", "Y-Dragon Head", and "Z-Metal Tank" from play in order to Special Summon "XYZ-Dragon Cannon" (2800/2600) in Attack Position. Chazz then removes "XYZ-Dragon Cannon" and "VW-Tiger Catapult" from play in order to Special Summon "VWXYZ-Dragon Catapult Cannon" (3000/2800) in Attack Position. Chazz then activates the effect of "VWXYZ-Dragon Catapult Cannon" to remove "Sparkman" from play. "VWXYZ" then attacks Jaden directly, but Jaden activates "A Hero Emerges" to force Chazz to select a card from Jaden's hand. If it is a monster, he can Special Summon it. Chazz chooses "Elemental Hero Burstinatrix" (1200/800), who is Special Summoned in Defense Position. A replay occurs, and Chazz chooses to use "VWXYZ" to attack "Burstinatrix". Chazz then activates the second effect of "VWXYZ" to switch "Burstinatrix" into Attack Position. "VWXYZ" destroys "Burstinatrix" (Jaden 2800 → 1000).
Turn 5: Jaden
Jaden draws "Transcendent Wings". He then Normal Summons "Winged Kuriboh" (300/200) in Defense Position and Sets a card.
Turn 6: Chazz
Chazz draws. "VWXYZ" attacks "Winged Kuriboh", but Jaden activates "Transcendent Wings" to send two cards in his hand to the Graveyard and Tribute "Winged Kuriboh" in order to Special Summon "Winged Kuriboh LV10" (300/200) from his Deck in Attack Position. Jaden activates the effect of "Winged Kuriboh LV10" since it is Chazz's Battle Phase, destroying "VWXYZ" and inflicting damage to Chazz equal to its ATK (Chazz 4000 → 1000).
Turn 7: Jaden
Jaden draws "Elemental Hero Avian" and subsequently Normal Summons it (1000/1000) in Attack Position. "Avian" then attacks Chazz directly (Chazz 1000 → 0).
