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

Continuing into Blue's memories, he arrives at the Power Plant with Evan, on advice from his grandfather. They find most of the Power Plant empty, but realize that it is still in use. They start walking through it, when they are attacked by Magnemite and Magneton. Blue sends out his Machamp, but its attack doesn't work. Blue then has Machamp use Focus Energy and uses a finger to defeat the Magneton. Blue then reveals that, when using Focus Energy, you can defeat an opponent by finding its weak spot.

As they continue through the Power Plant, Blue questions Evan on why his Haunter would be drawn to the Power Plant in the first place. All of a sudden, they come across gas, and a weird voice coming from it. Blue brings out his Pokédex to check it, and the voice mentions that he must be a trainer from Pallet Town. Much to Blue's horror, Evan announces that he is indeed a trainer from Pallet Town and that his name is Blue. The voice reveals that she has been waiting a long time to pay back Professor Oak, and in comes his grandson. They are then attacked by the voice's Gengar. Blue sends out his Golduck and uses Hydro Pump as a wall. The voice commands the Gengar to use Hypnosis, and Blue is caught and starts floating toward the fog. His Pokédex falls out of his pocket on the way. Blue then sees a memory of when he left Pallet Town as a child to train with his master. It is revealed that Gengar is using Dream Eater on Blue, who is asleep. Evan then tries to figure out what to do.
