The students of Canterlot High School prepare for the Friendship Games, a sporting event held between their school team, the Wondercolts, and the Shadowbolts from Crystal Prep Academy, a prestigious school with a reputation of poor sportsmanship and a fierce competitive streak. Sunset Shimmer and her friends are advised against using Equestrian magic in the games to keep the competition fair, much to Sunset’s concern when she and her friends “pony up” (magically gain pony-like ears, tails and wings) at seemingly random times. Meanwhile, the human world’s version of Twilight Sparkle has been investigating the magical activity at Canterlot High as a student of Crystal Prep. Principal Cinch, who believes Twilight’s intellectual skill will secure Crystal Prep’s victory in the games, forces her to participate under threat of revoking her application for a coveted independent study program.
