"Showdown Between Close Friends" (親友対決, Shin'yū Taiketsu) is episode 225 of the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime.

Synopsis

Naruto and Shikamaru comment with interest on the upcoming match between Sarada and Chōchō. Shikadai finds Inojin sulking. Chōchō finds them and complains about having to fight her best friend. Inojin motivates her by reminding her of their promise. Team 15 checks on Sarada, who is determined to give her all. Kawaki notices Shinki staring at him and leaves. Shinki follows him, telling his team-mates he'll return shortly. Outside the arena, Shinki introduces himself and tells Kawaki he should watch the next match. Kawaki gets angry with being told what to do and grabs Shinki by the collar. Shinki pulls him off with his Iron Sand and reiterates he should watch the match before going back inside. The match between Sarada and Chōchō begins. Chōchō tries landing blows with enlarged fists, while Sarada dodges and reads her movements with her Sharingan. Positioning herself on a wall, Sarada attacks with Lightning Balls, landing hits. She's apologetic about it, which angers Chōchō, who calls Sarada out for not going all out against her and lands a hit. Sarada recalls talking to Sasuke about being committed to taking Boruto out if he became Momoshiki.

She gets serious, and attacks with Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique, which Chōchō rolls through, pursuing her around. Naruto, Sai, and Shikamaru comment on how the match has improved. Sasuke watches it from the stands. Sarada prepares a Chidori and Chōchō enters Butterfly Mode. The two clash, and Chōchō goes down first when the smoke clears, so Sarada is declared the winner. Chōchō's team-mates go check on her. Shinki asks Kawaki if he thought the match was worth watching. Sarada and Chōchō do the Seal of Reconciliation. Leaving with Inojin and Shikadai, Chōchō cries about not being able to keep her promise. Inojin tells her not to stress it. Sarada sees Sasuke, and admits that the things shinobi must be prepared to do are more serious than she thought. He asks about Boruto and Mitsuki, who still aren't around. The two watch Amado negotiating with a group about scientific ninja tools. He refuses their terms, considering himself indebted to Konoha. The group decides to take him by force. While Amado prepares to escape by himself, Boruto and Mitsuki engage the enemy and take him. Amado reminds them of the Chūnin Exams, and they try to rush back to Konoha. They notice their names having been drawn yet. At the arena, Denki notes how all other remaining participants are strong opponents.
