Growing Out of Gengar (Japanese: VS ゲンガー VS. Gangar) is the 52nd round of the Pokémon Adventures manga and the twelth round in the Yellow chapter.


Agatha laughs as Blue is suspended in the air by Gengar's Dream Eater. Bozz watches in horror. Agatha says to Bozz, "Look around a monument of human folly and selfishness." Bozz questions this, and she begins to explain to him that the power plant they stand in was once intended to be a center of a major industrial development, but was abandoned halfway through. However, it caused hundreds of Pokémon to leave their homes for the convenience of humans. Large amounts of industrial waste were left behind from the power plant. This served as fuel for Gastly, Haunter, and Gengar. Template:Type2s were attracted to the power plant because of the industrial waste. Agatha then reveals her identity to him as one of the Elite Four of Kanto. Blue begins to struggle inside the floating coffin, and Agatha laughs again, stating that it is impossible to break free of the Dream Eater from the inside. She then commands her Gengar to drain all the life force from him. Blue is then shocked to a dream of his past. In his dream, he is being thrown onto the floor. A man stays silent as he watches Blue. Blue cries out in frustration, saying that if he were able to use his Pokémon things would be easier. He then pleads with the man, saying, "Master...Master! Please let me use my Pokémon!" After saying this, Blue demands to know why the Trainers themselves had to train if this was supposed to be Pokémon battling. The man begins to explain that Pokémon battling is only the Pokémon fighting and the Trainer merely giving orders. The Trainer suffers no injury at all. That is the reason why Trainers must train themselves. The Trainer's heart will never merge with their Pokémon's until they feel the attack and sharpen their own strengths. Then the man encourages Blue to grab the sword, hone his own strengths, and master the skills necessary to take down a foe himself...

Blue wakes up suddenly, realizing he's under a Dream Eater attack by Gengar. He tries to think of a way to escape. Agatha smiles to herself as she enjoys Blue's pain, and exclaims that it was Bozz's own bad luck to have come with Blue. Bozz then yells in pain from an attack. He falls to the ground by the Pokédex. He looks at the Pokédex, and then realizes that Blue was talking to him through it. Blue warns Bozz not to let Agatha know about Blue talking through the Pokédex, and explains that Golduck is psychically channeling Blue's thoughts into the Pokédex. Blue begins to explain his plan to Bozz. Blue tells him to go to the pile of Pokéballs and release his Haunter to attack Agatha's Gengar by surprise. Bozz then cries out that he is unable to do it, being too scared. Blue then tells Bozz that sometimes a Trainer must have the courage himself to take action. Agatha then reappears behind Bozz as he closes the Pokédex, asking if he had any final words to say. She says that she knows about the trick with the Pokédex, even though she doesn't know what the two boys talked about. Then Agatha shouts at Blue, "Now...I'll let you die in the comfort of your dreams! Go to sleep, little one..." She laughs as she orders her Gengar to use Confuse Ray on Blue. Bozz gasps and thinks to himself that it was all his fault, and musters determination within himself, clenching his fists. He begins to run at the pile of Pokéballs behind Agatha. Agatha takes this as an attack against her, and asks him if he was getting desperate. She then summons Golbat and Arbok. Arbok manages to fling Bozz to the pile of Pokéballs. Bozz starts to look frantically for his Haunter, and finds it. He releases his Haunter to attack Gengar, and Agatha sneers, asking what a puny attack can do. She orders a Counter from Gengar.
