Plot

Professor Rowan arrives at the Pokémon League thinking about how far Hareta has come, wondering if he might have what it takes to win the tournament. He then considers the fact that Hareta is the son of "that man", and that if anyone could do it, it would be him. After Hareta and the Professor have a short reunion, the matches continue as both Hareta and Koya plow their way through the competition. Shortly before his match with Hareta comes up, Koya speaks to someone over a communications device in an empty hallway regarding his "mission", mentioning that just as he thought, the target is with Professor Rowan. However, Mitsumi overhears the conversation and takes the opportunity to confront Koya. He tells her that she has nothing to do with his business, but if she gets in the way she'll be dealt with.

As the battle begins between Hareta's Luxio and Koya's Absol, things don't look good for Hareta, especially when an Iron Tail attack knocks both Luxio and Hareta off the field. Hareta slowly slips into unconsciousness as a medical team comes on its way... Hareta hears a voice within his mind, a voice with no clear face behind it. "Hareta, it's okay. Don't ever forget that Pokémon will always be your friends as long as you share the feelings right from your heart. Do this and they will surely return the favor."

Koya seems to think the battle is over, however the medical team suddenly back away from the rubble as a large bolt of lightning comes forth. Hareta is back in action with his newly evolved Luxray! Hareta repeats the words the voice spoke to him back at Koya and pauses for a moment, whose voice was it that reminded him of that? Hareta decides to leave that point for now though and declares that the battle is not yet over.
