Plot

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

As Spenser puts his staff up to Sapphire's chin, she asks what he's doing. Spenser states that he can tell something about Sapphire from her eyes. Ruby has Fofo attack with Weather Ball, but Spenser knocks him to the ground with his staff. Spenser states that by looking at her eyes, he can tell that Sapphire touched the Blue Orb. As he talks to her, Ruby pulls out a Lighter of Memory and ignites it.

At the Battle Dome, Emerald's Metagross attempts to defend itself from Tucker's Charizard. As the Frontier Brains look excitedly at the battle, Anabel leaves to discuss something with Scott. Greta asks Noland how he found out a way to find Jirachi. Noland reveals that he had captured three Smeargle from the Artisan Cave the day before.

He reveals that during the clash with Guile Hideout, some of the Smeargle were able to Sketch one of the moves Jirachi could use. He has the Smeargle use Wish, which releases a bright flash of light. Noland states that although he has never seen the real Jirachi, he can use the flash of light created from Wish to determine where Jirachi would appear with the use of surveillance cameras.

Back at the battlefield, Emerald's Metagross is finally knocked out, making Tucker the winner of the battle. Tucker congratulates Emerald for the well-fought battle, but points out that Protect gets weaker with each consecutive use. He offers to battle Emerald again when the Battle Frontier officially opens, but Emerald just leaves without a word. Tucker assumes that Emerald is unable to suppress his anger, and goes off to join his teammates. Suddenly, Tucker notices Guile's shadow from the window, and he sends his Salamence to pursue the villain. The other Frontier Brains are shocked to see Tucker acting so oddly. Noland gets a signal where Jirachi has appeared next: the top of the Battle Dome.

Back at the Battle Palace, Sapphire questions what her connection to the Blue Orb has to do with anything. Spenser apologizes, and explains that he got worked over meeting one of his kindred. Ruby gestures to Sapphire that she did a good job and the two run off. Ruby reveals that with the Lighter of Memory, he recorded Spenser's strange behavior. Meanwhile, Emerald approaches Spenser at the Battle Palace's entrance. Emerald tells Spenser that he intends on challenging the Battle Palace, as his plans have been disrupted. Emerald states that he'll challenge the Battle Palace now and the Battle Tower tomorrow, so he can finish the Battle Dome again on the last day. Spenser agrees, and states that their battle will go unseen by the press, as that's how he prefers it.

On the Battle Dome's roof, the Frontier Brains are helpless to stop Guile from sucking Jirachi into a Poké Ball. The Poké Ball falls to the floor, with Jirachi fully captured. Guile picks up the Poké Ball and proudly proclaims that Jirachi is now his.
