VS. Vibrava (Japanese: Vs. ビブラーバ VS. Vibrava) is the 245th round of the Pokémon Adventures manga in the Ruby & Sapphire chapter.


The Three Fires of Team Magma confront Brawly, Roxanne, and Wallace, saying that they intend to get rid of the Gym Leaders, and take the three to Lilycove City for battle, since the city is now deserted due to the natural disasters being caused by Groudon and Kyogre. Mack drops Brawly into the Lilycove Museum, while Mitch brings Wallace to the Lilycove Department Store and Marge takes Roxanne to the Lilycove Inn. All three prepare to fight.

Out in the ocean, Kyogre continues to rampage, Angie and Ark frustrated at seeing Winona, Flannery, and Wattson doing their best to hinder Kyogre's progress. Angie notices a signal that indicates Amber is on his way, and assumes he's coming to join them after a successful mission to the Seafloor Cavern. Just then, Winona's Altaria launches a DragonBreath at them both, forcing them to scatter, and Winona declares that since she's given up her leadership duties, she can fight Team Aqua freely as an ordinary Gym Leader. Her Skarmory's Metal Sound and Air Cutter and Altaria's Flamethrower deal heavy damage to Ark and his Vibrava, and Wattson tells Flannery to go help Winona fight while he stays to take care of Kyogre. Flannery and her Vulpix charge into the fray with Ember, stopping Angie from counterattacking against Winona, and when Flannery gets a good look at Angie, she recognizes her from the incident at Mt. Chimney. Flannery angrily declares that she won't let them get away this time.

Despite Flannery and Winona's apparent success, Wattson is having trouble with Kyogre. He readily admits that it's too powerful for him to handle alone, and its strength even seems to be increasing. Suddenly, a voice explains to him why: it's because Archie has obtained the Blue Orb, letting Team Aqua unleash Kyogre's full might. Amber appears from the sea beneath Wattson, ready to join the battle.

In Slateport City, a Swimmer and his Gyarados are combing the area for anyone who might have been left behind during the evacuation. The swimmer spots a young boy and his Magikarp reading, and frantically asks him what he's still doing here, to which the boy replies that he was so engrossed in reading that he simply didn't notice everyone had left. The boy is reading an ancient slate written in Braille, and the swimmer, impressed, asks where the boy learned to read it. He says he was taught it in the hospital by a man who claims to be the Champion of the Pokémon League, and we see a shot of Steven leading Phoebe, Sidney, Glacia, and Drake--the Elite Four.
