| Ursaring Major/One Angry Ursaring
Ursaring Major or One Angry Ursaring (Japanese: VS リングマ VS. Ringuma ) is the 102nd round of the Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter in the Pokémon Adventures manga.
The round starts off with Gold clutching his leg in pain, as the Ursaring and Teddiursa loom over him. Maisy tries to catch his attention, as the Ursaring lunges at them, claws bared. Gold tells the girl to run, as a Sneasel intercepts the attack. From the attack, Ursaring's paws are frozen solid, as Silver informs Gold that the Ursaring came back for a trophy, much to Gold's contempt. Suddenly, the ice surrounding Ursaring's arm begins to thaw out, as Silver realizes that it is using Fire Punch to thaw the ice. As this happens, Gold questions Silver's motives, wondering whether he is truly protecting Maisy out of the goodness in him. Teddiursa then lunges at Aibo, as Gold warns his Pokémon not to get distracted by its cute looks. Whilst Teddiursa and Aibo flail in mid-air, Gold attempts to capture the wild Pokémon. However, the Poké Ball merely bounces atop Teddiursa's head, much to Gold's surprise. He wonders why the capture was unsuccessful, proceeding to try again with the same outcome. Gold curses at the old couple who gave him battling strategies, stating that they did not tell him everything.
However, Silver corrects him, stating that it was his fault. Gold tells him to be quiet, as Silver explains that this is more proof of his inexperience. Silver then states that this is the perfect opportunity to use the special Poké Ball Kurt made for him. He apologizes to Gold, explaining that the Ursaring is his. However, Silver is knocked off balance by Aibo, who was thrown by Ursaring. As a result, Silver loses his grip on the Poké Ball, which clatters to the ground. Silver glares at Gold, who states that Aibo's actions were not his fault. The three of them are forced to run away from the advancing Ursaring and Teddiursa, but find themselves trapped on the edge of a cliff. Tears begin to well in Maisy's eyes, and she reveals that she disobeyed her grandfather's instructions by venturing up to the mountains. However, Gold consoles her, and asks that she trust his judgment. Gold asks Silver to teach him the special technique in catching, to which Silver complies. He explains that Gold will need to rely on both speed and timing in his throw, and that he should concentrate on the center of Ursaring's belly and the crescent on Teddiursa's forehead.
As Gold prepares to hurl his Poké Ball with his stick, Silver asks which Pokémon he will use it on. Gold does not reply, and instead hurls the Poké Ball in such a way that it rebounds off surrounding rocks. In doing so, he knocks Silver's Heavy Ball back into Silver's hands. Gold comments that they are now ready to capture both Pokémon. The two of them hurl both their Poké Balls simultaneously at their opponents, resulting in a perfect capture. Maisy is ecstatic at their accomplishment, as Gold brags about his involvement. Silver instead states that the Ursaring is the least of his problems now, before running off into the distance. Gold comments that he will never understand what is going on in Silver's head. Gold then gives the Teddiursa to Maisy, as they proceed to leave the mountaintop. At the Slowpoke Well, several Team Rocket grunts are scavenging Slowpoke Tails from the Slowpoke. However, they are interrupted by the arrival of Silver, who smirks. As Gold and Maisy arrive at her grandfather's house, they realize something is out of the ordinary as the water will not turn on. Kurt arrives at Slowpoke Well, and is surprised that all of the Team Rocket members have been bound and gagged.
Maisy happily approaches her grandfather, but Kurt simply berates her for disobeying his instructions. She sincerely apologizes to him, prompting Kurt to relent, stating that she is safe, and that is all that matters. Gold asks Kurt what transpired here, to which Kurt confirms that they were in this state when he arrived. Gold senses a presence approaching them, but relaxes when he discovers it is only Bugsy. Bugsy informs Gold why he came to the Slowpoke Well, asking Gold whether he was responsible for this. Gold denies this, prompting Bugsy to wonder who was really responsible. Maisy expresses her sympathies for the Slowpoke, as Gold uses Aibo to make the Slowpoke yawn. As the Slowpoke opens its mouth, water comes rushing out from the well, as Gold reveals that this was part of his plan. Gold then departs from Azalea Town, wondering whether Silver could have been responsible for the apprehension of Team Rocket, due to the fact that Ursaring claw marks were found on the scene. Gold wonders what Silver's ulterior motive is, commenting that it will be exciting to find out what his true goal is.
