The chapter begins with Daisy Oak taking care of Wigglytuff. Suddenly, Professor Oak comes in, outraged with what is happening to Pewter City, Cerulean City, and Celadon City. Oak looks out of the lab at the burning cities as Misty is trying to defeat multiple Gengar in Cerulean. Meanwhile at Cerise, Blue, his Golduck, and Blaine meet with Lt. Surge and his Electabuzz, Sabrina and her Alakazam, and Koga and his Muk. Farther in the island, Lance orders Lorelei to call Bruno (who is looking to challenge Red) back. With Bruno, Bruno has a flashback about his battle with Red. In the flashback, Red is calling Bruno, when suddenly the cliff he is on breaks. Bruno sends out his Hitmonlee, and it battles Pika. Pika is defeated and Hitmonlee is called back. Red sends out Poli and Bruno sends out Hitmonchan. Using ThunderPunch and Fire Punch, Poli is defeated. Now it is Gyara vs. Onix. As the two battle, Lorelei has a flashback about how she and Agatha met.
