| VS Kyogre & Groudon V
|Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.|
Having learned that the real opponents are at the Seafloor Cavern, Sapphire sends out Lorry and decides to go there and put an end to this. Winona questions this plan, as even though they know where their opponents are, they have no means of getting underwater.
Back at Brawly and Roxanne's location, they continue to have trouble against Groudon, who merely toys with them. Brawly tries to fight it with his Machoke, but Groudon easily swats it away. Although Brawl knows that his Pokémon is not weak, it is that Groudon is too strong.
At Wattson and Flannery's location, Kyogre continues to attack the Gym Leader duo. Wattson has his Manetric store up electricity and release it as an attack. The attack has no effect, as Kyogre instinctively raised its defenses with Calm Mind.
Back at Slateport City, Wallace arrives to rescue Captain Stern, Gabby, and Ty from the flooding. Stern gets worried and wishes that Steven were here to help them. When Stern asks Wallace if he knows where Steven is, Wallace replies with a no. Gabby asks where Ruby is, to which Wallace reveals that he put him in a first-aid center along with the other flood victims.
Ruby soon wakes up at the center, and gets confused at his surroundings. He quickly remembers about what he said to Feefee and goes out to find her again. He notices the Fan Club chairman and Dock and notes that they seem to be suffering from a disease. He notices Wallace, Stern, Gabby, and Ty coming into the building as well and hides. Ruby notes his behavior and berates himself for hiding and running away all this time.
Ruby eavesdrops Wallace and the others going to contact Winona. Upon calling her, Wallace apologizes to Winona for acting without her orders. Winona states that does not matter, as the two legendary Pokémon, Groudon and Kyogre have already awakened. After learning that Brawly, Roxanne, Flannery, and Wattson are fighting the two Pokémon, Wallace decides to go and join them. Winona stops him, as she reveals that fighting Groudon or Kyogre will not solve anything. When Wallace asks why, Winona reveals that the only way to stop the Pokémon is to defeat the person controlling them at the Seafloor Cavern.
Ruby sees Sapphire on the video screen, and notes that she has a new Pokémon, which he vaguely remembers seeing before. Overhearing their conversation, Ruby learns that it is impossible for them to reach their enemy without a submarine. Ruby flashes back to what Mr. Briney told him, and quickly remembers Relo as the Pokémon that has the ability to dive down the deepest depths of the ocean.
