Slugging It Out With Slugma or VS. Slugma (Japanese: VSマグマッグ VS. Magmag) is the 117th round of the Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter in the Pokémon Adventures manga.
The story starts with Professor Oak trying to capture a Slugma. He fails and laments that he cannot find a Trainer who is willing to capture all Pokémon and complete the Pokédex. Later, Bill calls up Prof. Oak at his second research center in Cherrygrove City and tells him that he had found someone who is willing to help complete the Pokédex on one request. Bill sends Prof. Oak the information to find him. Prof. Oak then finds out that he has to be at Violet City at 3:00 PM. He then leaves.
Meanwhile, Crystal explains to a girl that Pokémon can heal themselves by eating the Berries it holds. Earl Dervish then arrives and thanks Crystal for working at the Pokémon academy. Suddenly, a part of the academy falls down and nearly hits a child. Earl then laments that he is not an enterprising business man and cannot pay for a new academy. The children call Crystal to play with them when the Slugma from before attack the academy. Prof. Oak arrives and exclaims loudly that he is looking for the person who wants to help him. Crystal then releases all her Pokémon and weakens the Slugma. She then captures all of them. After the capture Crystal tells Prof. Oak that she is the one who wants to help him complete the Pokédex. A few days later, the Pokémon academy is rebuilt and Earl is grateful but wonders who is the benefactor. We find out it is Prof. Oak and he gives Crystal her Pokédex. At the same time, Raikou, Entei and Suicune leave the Burned Tower.
