Plot

201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201

The round opens with Ruby trying to keep the boy he met quiet as he hides from his father. As Ruby tries to prevent the boy from exposing the both of them, a wild Breloom attacks Norman, only to be easily defeated by his Vigoroth. Norman reveals that he knew that the boy Ruby met, now revealed to be named Wally, was there the entire time and makes him come out of hiding.

Wally asks if Norman came to teach him how to capture Pokémon, but Norman refuses because he wasn't informed of Wally's illness. Due to Wally being sick and his parent's making move to a faraway place to get better, Norman can't ensure that Wally would be safe. Norman quickly senses another presence and has his Slaking try to sniff it out.

Using Kiki, Ruby manages to escape being caught, but notices that Wally has collapsed. Ruby takes Wally back home, where Wally's parents apologize for what Wally had done. Wally apologizes to Ruby for causing so much trouble, but guesses that his parents must not have wanted him to capture a Pokémon and asked Norman to refuse his request. Angered, Ruby decides to show Wally's parents just what their son can do and invites Wally to capture a Pokémon. Ruby lends his Rara to Wally, at the cost of not getting her dirty.

Major events

  • Norman refuses Wally's request to help him capture a Pokémon.
  • Ruby takes the injured Wally back home and offers him to help capture a Pokémon.
