The group go to a castle and Sabrina appeared. Clefairy touched Sabrina's crystal ball in which Kadabra came out. Clefairy gets challenged to a magic game by Sabrina in which Kadabra became Clefairy's opponent. Using a magical box, Clefairy went inside with a cat but it doesn't work out. He then uses a safe and some fire-wood. Clefairy has Kadabra light up the fire wood. Unfortunately, the act did not work out as the dynamite were lit and blew up the whole castle. For punishment in doing so, Red had Clefairy swim in the water while he had Pikachu rode on a bicycle-shaped boat.
