Plot

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

As Ruby looks into the crowd, the announcer names him the winner of the Beauty Contest. Ruby is too distracted at the sight of Wally in the crowd to move until Gabby and Ty inform him that he has to enter the Tough and Smart Contests. Later, Ruby has succeeded in beating all of the Contests, but he continues to look for Wally in the crowd of people.

He discovers Wally entering a bus, and has Feefee freeze the door to stop the crowd from entering it. He grabs Wally out of the crowd, only to find that the person he had seen was only a girl named Wanda that resembles Wally. Later, they introduce each other in Gabby and Ty's Hoenn TV car. Wanda reveals that Wally had already move again to a different location with a better hospital to better recuperate, much to Ruby's disappointment.

Suddenly, a news report comes on the television revealing that an accident happened at the Rusturf Tunnel. As they drive toward the tunnel, an Absol passes them by, causing Ruby to shudder before he calls it beautiful. Ruby decides to look it up in the Pokédex and finds that it only appears where disasters appear.

They arrive to see people panicking about the cave-in. One of the people revealed to have gone missing is Riley, Wanda's boyfriend. Wanda immediately panics and drives into the cave to search for him. As they search, Ty sees the Absol watching over them and mistakes it for causing the cave-in. Gabby tries to calm Wanda down as she tries to rip the boulders caused by the cave-in out. Although she believes that there is no way to move the rocks, Ruby calls out Mumu to help them.
