During their journey, {{Ash}}, {{an|Iris}} and {{an|Cilan}} were confronted by a {{p|Drilbur}} and a {{p|Braviary}}. These belonged to Soren and Rocko, who revealed themselves from their hiding place. They challenged {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} to a tag battle, and claimed they were the greatest brothers in the world. Soren even said he and his brother had defeated the Subway Bosses, [[Emmet]] and [[Ingo]], which was soon revealed by Rocko to be false.

Soren and Rocko were excited to hear Cilan is a [[Gym Leader]] and so they wanted to battle against him and Ash. While Soren and Rocko chose Braviary and Drilbur to battle, Ash and Cilan decided to go with {{AP|Unfezant}} and {{TP|Cilan|Pansage}}. At first, Ash and Cilan were surprised by the unique combinations of the brothers, but after taking some hits, they countered with their own combinations and eventually won. This loss made the brothers upset, and they started to blame it on each other. Cilan quickly offered his help however, and analyzed the Pokémon of the siblings. He came to the conclusion that the brothers needed to catch a {{type|Water}} Pokémon to battle perfectly, because then they would have full coverage over land, sky and water.

File:Soran Riiku.png
Soran (left) and Riku (right)

(Japanese: ソラン Soran) and (Japanese: リーク Rīku) are the characters of the day in A Surface to Air Tag Battle Team!. They are brothers, with Soran being the elder one.

During their journey, Ash, Iris and Cilan were confronted by a Drilbur and a Braviary. These belonged to Soran and Riku, who revealed themselves from their hiding place. They challenged Ash and his friends to a tag battle, and claimed they were the number-one siblings in the world. Soran even said he and his brother had defeated the Subway Bosses, Emmet and Ingo, which was soon revealed by Riku to be false.

Soran and Riku were excited to hear Cilan is a Gym Leader and so they wanted to battle against him and Ash. While Soran and Riku chose Braviary and Drilbur to battle, Ash and Cilan decided to go with Unfezant and Pansage. At first, Ash and Cilan were surprised by the unique combinations of the brothers, but after taking some hits, they countered with their own combinations and eventually won. This loss made the brothers upset, and they started to blame it on each other. Cilan quickly offered his help however, and analyzed the Pokémon of the siblings. He came to the conclusion that the brothers each needed to catch a Water-type Pokémon to battle perfectly, because then they would have full coverage over land, sky and water.

Cilan and the brothers went fishing and they quickly came across a male and a female Frillish. They wanted to catch them, but the brothers started arguing again on what combination to use to attack the Frillish. This made the Frillish attack first and escape. Shortly after that, a Buizel and Corphish appeared. This time, the brothers worked together perfectly, even deciding who would catch which Pokémon. Soran managed to catch Buizel, while Riku succeeded in catching Corphish. They sincerely thanked Cilan for his help and after that said goodbye to him, Ash and Iris.
