Marge dives down towards Ruby and takes him into the air. Tyler tries to stop her, but he is blocked by the Team Magma Grunts. Marge continues dragging Ruby into the Rusturf Tunnel, which she states Team Magma "helped" complete by crushing the boulders inside. Although Ruby tries to break free, Marge's gloves are covered in Pomeg and Kelpsy Berry juice, creating a very powerful glue.

Ruby asks Marge why she picked him up, to which replies is because of their battle at the Abandoned Ship. Marge introduces herself to Ruby and throws him at a wall with the intent to battle him. Marge sends out her Ninetales to attack, which forces Ruby to defend himself. Although Ruby continues to feign ignorance in the ways of battle, Marge isn't fooled, as she knows all about his skills.

Marge explains that the horns in the Team Magma member's costumes each contain a lighter. By igniting the lighter, they can create a memory and store images them. By putting the flames together, they can share a memory, which is how Marge knew about Ruby's skills. Having no choice, Ruby drops his facade and sends his team out to battle, which pleases Marge.

Back outside the tunnel, Tyler and the others struggle against the Team Magma Grunts. Suddenly, the Whismur re-appear, having brought reinforcements in the form of their evolved forms, Loudred and Exploud. The Loudred and Exploud use Hyper Voice, which causes a huge explosion that defeats the Magma Grunts. The explosion also clears the rocks blocking the entrance to the Rusturf Tunnel, allowing them to go and help Ruby.

Back at Ruby's side, Ruby has trouble battling Marge because of her Ninetale's ability to shoot out nine different fireballs at once. Although Zuzu can block one or two of the fireballs, the others are unable to, and get hit in the process. Marge reveals the skills of each individual members of the Three Fires: Mitch, who uses his Torkoal to make others sleepy with its fumes; Mack, who uses fire to create illusions; and Marge herself, who uses fire for its most natural use, burning.

Knowing that Ruby likes Contests, Marge reveals that she likes beautiful things as well. However, Marge states that her idea of beauty is different, which she demonstrates by burning a Ribbon. When flames engulf a victim, that is what Marge considers truly beautiful. Marge suddenly kneels down and ask Ruby if he wants to join them.
