Plot

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

Brawly's newly evolved Hariyama goes to attack once more. With Chic still stuck in the wall, Sapphire is at a disadvantage, but she commands Chic to try and block it. Although confident that he has won, Brawly's confidence is shattered when he sees his Hariyama falling down defeated.

Sapphire reveals that when Hariyama used Counter to do double the damage from Chic's first attack, Chic used Double Kick to deal a second hit to it. Sapphire reveals that she figured out that Brawly's Makuhita was going to evolve based on his mannerisms when they first met. Although surprised that he lost, Brawly awards Sapphire her second Badge, the Knuckle Badge.

Suddenly, a rumbling sound begins roaring outside at the Granite Cave. Although Brawly tries to stop her from going, Sapphire worries about Ruby's safety. Despite Sapphire's protests of calling Ruby her friend, Brawly decides to let her go after seeing how worried she is about Ruby.

Sapphire arrives at the Granite Cave and begins searching for Ruby. Ruby quickly turns up alright and teases her by asking if she came to the cave to look for food to eat. Angry, Sapphire yells at Ruby who tells her that he didn't ask her to come and save him. Ruby also reveals that he met Steven Stone, a person who helped him battle a group of wild Pokémon in the cave.

Sapphire quickly asks him where Steven went, and Ruby points to the direction where he left. She reveals that she was supposed to meet him and drags Ruby to go and find him. She jumps off a cliff, and the two land on Lorry to go and chase after Steven.

The counter of the bet continues at sixty-nine days.
