DBZ Episode 289

From Dragon Ball Encyclopedia, the ''Dragon Ball'' wiki

"Ten years have passed, and Goku is training with Goten when Bulma and Vegeta show up. Goku says that he and Goten will be entering the World Martial Arts Tournament, so Vegeta says that he and Trunks will do the same. The day of the tournament comes, and old friends catch up. Everyone has arrived to watch. Gohan, who is now married to Videl, has decided not to enter, but his daughter, Pan, will fight. Since there is no junior division, she will be fighting with the adults. Hercule and Buu will be fighting, however, and Goku says that there is someone who is 100% human that can threaten to beat Goku and Vegeta." cannot be used as a page name in this wiki.

Granddaughter Pan is the fourteenth episode of the Kid Buu Saga and the two hundred eighty-ninth overall episode in the original dubbed and the uncut version of the Dragon Ball Z series. The original Japanese title is "Goku Ojichan! Watashi ga Pan yo!!" (悟空おじいちゃん!私がパンよ!!). The episode first aired on January 17, 1996. It's original American air date was April 3, 2003.


This episode is set a decade after Kid Buu's defeat, it starts off with Trunks flying in a Capsule Corp. plane. He's heading over to see if Goten is at home.
Vegeta meeting Goku after 5 years
When he gets there he knocks on the door but no one answers at first. Then an aged Chi Chi answers Trunks and tells him that he is with his dad and suggests that he asks Gohan where they are. Trunks goes to see Gohan and finds the door open. Trunks walks in and takes a look around and is amazed to see all the books that Gohan has. Gohan asks Trunks to help him with the books that he was carrying. Trunks asks Gohan and Videl if they know were Goten is. Gohan said he's out training with Goku and that his parents were heading up go see them.

Next we see Goten and Goku are fighting. They take a break after they see that Vegeta and a really aged Bulma has come to see them. Bulma's mad at Goku because it's been 5 years since anyone has seen Goku, and all Goku could say was that he's been training. Vegeta asks Goku if it's true that he's entering the tournament this year and Goku said yes, because someone powerful enough to beat him has entered the tournament. He says that this mystery fighter is a human, not an alien.

Then Goku says that Pan, his granddaughter, will fight in the tournament along with Goten and himself. Vegeta decides to fight in the tournament too, and says that Trunks is going to do the same.

So the next day everyone is walking to the stadium to find some seats. Pan wants to go play so she and Goku go play some games. Then Goku takes Pan to see her other grandfather, Mr. Satan, who is talking with Majin Buu. When he learns that Goku and the others are entering the tournament, he is worried that he won't win, but Goku assures him that if any of them make it to the finals, they will let him win.
