"Raring To Go", known as "5 Polymers! VWXYZ" in the Japanese version, is the fourth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh GX anime. It aired in Japan October 27, 2004. It aired in the US on October 13, 2005.

Jaden Yuki Duels Chazz Princeton as part of Duel Academy's promotion exams, with each intent defeating the other and resolving their previous Duel.


A 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.
