==Synopsis==
Three years ago, in Ranger School, a new class called Class 27 is beginning their first year. Kincaid is making a speech when a large explosion echoes through the room. A girl named Kate apologises for causing it after blowing up her Styler in an attempt to discover how it works. In a fit of rage, Kincaid suspends her on her first day, much to her disappointment.

At the [[Ranger School]], [[Kincaid]] welcomes the new students of Class 27 at starting their first year as student Rangers. [[Ms. Claire]] hands the new students School Stylers. While Kincaid makes a speech, a girl named [[Kate]] begins tinkering with her School Styler, causing it to explode. When [[Ms. April]] and Ms. Claire go to investigate, Kate apologizes and explains that she only wanted to know how the Styler worked. Furious at what Kate had done, Kincaid suspends Kate, much to her shock.
   
Three years later, Kate, now a soon-to-be Top Ranger, along with her partner Pachirisu is welcomed by Barlow and Crawford into the Vientown Base. Kate explains she built up a hatred towards Kincaid after that day and this led to him constantly following her, almost preventing her from graduating. Barlow laughs and welcomes her, explaining she is the second Top Ranger to be based in Vientown. When Kate asks about the second, Barlow is surprised she doesn't know him as they were both in Class 27 together. He asks Crawford about the whereabouts of the second Top Ranger, Kellyn, and they assimilate he must still be at home. Kate chips in that he must be really late for work, but Crawford explains nobody is really bothered as Kellyn tends to do as he pleases. Just then, a boy runs up to them with two copies of the Almia Times. Kate questions this, although Barlow explains that they don't actually ever get to read the newspapers because Kellyn always takes them first. He asks Kate to take the papers to Kellyn, claiming it to be her first mission. Crawford teases this will be the best way for her to get to know Kellyn. Barlow also warns her not to get the papers ripped or dirty for her own sake. A little crept out, Kate sets off, commenting that this 'Kellyn' sounds a little weird. But she remembers he's also a Top Ranger and may be super cool. As she thinks of the Top Rangers' Vatonage Styler, she voices her dream to 'investigate' the Styler. This prompts her to 'fix' her own Styler with a screwdriver, being stopped just in time by her Pachirisu.
+
Three years later, [[Barlow]] notes that despite all that happened to her, Kate is now a soon-to-be Top Ranger. Kate tries to explain that Kincaid kept following her around after the accident, which almost caused her to not even graduate. [[Crawford]] and Barlow state that at least she was able to make it as far as she did. Barlow and Crawford introduce themselves to Kate and welcome her to the Vientown Ranger Base. Barlow states that he's happy that Kate was assigned there, which means that the Vien Base will now have two Top Rangers stationed there.
   
Finally, Kate locates Kellyn's house and, finding it's unlocked, goes inside. She finds and is shocked by an enormous library of newspapers and ranger-related items. She wonders whether Kellyn must be obsessed or something and why he keeps all this stuff. Pachirisu smells something and heads over to the window. Kate also does and is shocked to discover that the forest in on fire. Heading outside to investigate, she finds a ranger with a Pachirisu standing on a rocky outcrop. Seeing the Vatonage Styler on his wrist, Kate realises he must he the second Top Ranger they were talking about: Kellyn. She yells up at him to try and help by capturing some fleeing Buizel to put out the fire, startling the male ranger with her sudden arrival. He smiles and tells her that on August 8th three years ago, on page 3 of Issue 1016 of the Almia Times, there was an article about an area ranger called Seb in the same situation. He used the move Rain Dance to clear away the fire, becoming the first ranger to use an area technique, and he did it using a Blastoise. As said Pokémon walks by, Kellyn captures it. As Kate marvels at the Vatonage Styler, Kellyn explains it can freely move through water and air and follows exactly where his fingers point. Kellyn orders the captured Blastoise to use Rain Dance, putting out the forest fire. As Kate is amazed by the skills of a real Top Ranger, Barlow calls her and asks whether she's met Kellyn yet. When she agrees, Barlow asks her if she's seen his collection yet. He explains that Kellyn collects ranger-related things as a hobby. However, he doesn't just collect them but uses him in his work. For example, he has in his possession a copy of every Almia Times ever produced and has learnt them all off by heart, shocking Kate. Therefore, Kellyn knows what each ranger and their Pokémon did where and when. He sums it up by explaining that it is that database which is the true weapon of the genius ranger: Kellyn. As Kate hangs up, Kellyn walks over to her and she comments he has an amazing collection. Immediately Kellyn becomes excited and asks her whether she's seen it and if it's brilliant. Kate has barely enough time to reply before Kellyn drags her back to the house to explain it all to her.
+
Although Kate is confused at learning that there's another Top Ranger, Barlow states that he was in Class 27 as well. When Barlow asks where [[Kellyn]] is, Crawford guesses that he must still be at his house. Kate asks why Kellyn is so late and Crawford replies by stating that it's because Kellyn tends to do his own things. A boy comes into the base with two copies of the latest [[Almia Times]]. Barlow states that both issues are for Kellyn and suggests that Kate give them to him as a way of getting to know him. He warns Kate that she must not get them damaged or dirty.
   
As an over-excited Kellyn proceeds to explain his collection to her, Kate finds herself mind-boggled by both ranger and collection. As Kellyn shows her a jar containing Styler pieces that he collected from the fire he mentioned before, he frowns as he notices they're a bit dirty. Kate, who has finally had enough, takes the opportunity to swipe Kellyn's Battonage Styler and begins investigating it, majorly annoying Kellyn. After getting her to finish, Kellyn comments Kate looks like a ranger and, for the first time, asks who she is. She tells him her name and that she has just started working at the Vientown Ranger Base. She also explains she was in the same class as him at Ranger School. Kellyn though says he can't remember a lot of Ranger School as he kept getting suspended, just like Kate who comments that a lot of them got suspended on a regular basis. Kellyn then notices the Almia Times copies Kate brought and realises they are dirty and torn. Furious, he turns on Kate and, complaining her hands are dirty, drags her over to a sink and forces her to wash them. She apologises and remembers Barlow warning her about Kellyn's temper if she damaged either copy of the newspaper, realising she should have paid attention to that. Kellyn tells her, still furious, that he doesn't even touch them his bare hands but uses gloves and will swap them at the store later. However he gets over his rage when he sees the front page, showing Altru Tower, and notices something.
+
Much to her disappointment, Kate and {{p|Pachirisu}} head out to deliver the newspaper. Kate notes that Kellyn sounds like a weird person, but since he's a Top Ranger, he must be a really cool person with a Vatonage Styler. Since she only had the School Styler from the Ranger School and her own Capture Styler, Kate expresses a desire to take apart a Vatonage Styler and find out how it works. Before heading off again, Kate decides to tinker with her Capture Styler again, only to be stopped by her Pachirisu.
  +
  +
Eventually, Kate reaches Kellyn's house and tries calling out to Kellyn. When she doesn't get an answer, Kate goes inside after finding out that the door is unlocked. Much to her shock, Kate finds herself surrounded by various objects related to Pokémon Rangers like broken Stylers parts and Capture Discs. Suddenly, Pachirisu smells something coming from outside and gestures Kate to look out the window. Upon looking out the window, Kate finds out that the [[Vien Forest]] is on fire. Pachirisu loads a Capture Disc in Kate's Styler and the two set out to put it out. Upon arriving, Kate looks for a Pokémon that can be used to put out the flames.
  +
  +
Kate quickly notices that another Ranger and his Pachirisu is already at the scene of the fire. Noticing the Vatonage Styler on his wrist, Kate realizes that the Ranger is Kellyn, the other Top Ranger. Kate wonders why Kellyn isn't using any of the wild {{p|Buizel}} to put out the fire. Kellyn notices Kate and begins reciting some information. He states that three years ago, on August 8th, the third page of issue 1016 of the Almia Times covered a similar event that happened to [[Sven]], who was only an Area Ranger at the time. While normal Rangers would have {{type|Water}} Pokémon use Soak to put out a fire, Sven had a Pokémon use Rain Dance, making it the first time anyone has used an Area Move.
  +
  +
He states that the Pokémon Sven used to put out the fire was a {{p|Blastoise}} and finds another one to imitate the event. Kellyn releases the Capture Disc from his Vatonage Styler, which can fly freely through the air and water wherever his finger points. Kellyn fully captures the Blastoise and commands it to do a Rain Dance. Blastoise uses Rain Dance, which summons rain clouds that put out the fire with water. Kate states that she is glad that the event is over and notes that it was the first time she has ever seen someone do something like that.
  +
  +
Kate gets a call on her Styler from Barlow who asks if she has met Kellyn yet. Barlow reveals that Kellyn collects ranger-related things as a hobby. However, he doesn't just collect them but uses him in his work. For example, Kellyn owns every edition of the Almia Times and has them memorized by heart. Due to this, Kellyn knows what mission each Ranger has done and what Pokémon they worked with to accomplish them. Barlow states that Kellyn's greatest weapon is his database and refers to him as the genius Ranger.
  +
  +
When Kellyn approaches her, Kate comments that he has an amazing collection. This pleases Kellyn, who proceeds to drag Kate back to his house so that he can explain it all to her. As an over-excited Kellyn proceeds to explain his collection to her, Kate finds herself dazed by both Kellyn and his collection. Kellyn shows Kate the pieces of {{ra|Spenser}}'s broken Styler from the incident that happened in Fiore two years ago but notices that the bottle they're contained in is dirty.
  +
  +
Kate attempts to change the subject by pointing out that Kellyn's Styler needs some fixing. Although Kellyn refuses, Kate tinkers with his Styler anyway, and improves the release mechanism. Kellyn thanks Kate for her help and asks who she is once he notices that she looks like a Ranger. Kate introduces herself and states that she was in Class 27. Kellyn states that since he was always getting suspended, he doesn't really remember her at all.
  +
  +
Kellyn notices the newest Almia Times and picks it up. Kate states that it was the reason why she came, but Kellyn gets angry after noticing that the newspaper is covered in dirt. Angry that Kate touched his collection with her hands, Kellyn forces Kate to wash her hands in his sink. Kellyn puts on a pair of gloves that even he hasn't touches his stuff with his bare hands while Kate cries after remembering what Barlow warned her. A still-annoyed Kellyn states that he will go out and swap his copies with another one at the store. He checks the paper and quickly notices something on the front page.
