Template:Incomplete synopsis While walking in the middle of a corn field, Ash and his friends comes upon a Drilbur. Then, Pikachu points out to a Braviary. Cilan then suggests that the Braviary is watching them. Iris states that Cilan is over thinking things. Ash agrees and they begin to take a step, only to be interrupted by laughter.

Suddenly, two boys pop out, and challenge our heroes to a tag battle. Ash then accepts, but Cilan and Iris are reluctant. Cilan asks for the boys to introduce themselves,the two boys laugh, stating "You don't know who we are?! You're such a Drilbur!". The boys ask why Ash, Iris and, Cilan aren't laughing, and they assume their gag was too perfect, so it was too funny. The two boys introduce themselves as Soran, the "sky warrior", and Riku, the "earth warrior".
