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

Misty, Lt. Surge, and Blaine order their new companions, Suicune, Raikou, and Entei respectively, to attack the Masked Man. The Masked Man responds by blowing the three attacks away and commanding Aeroblast and Sacred Fire from Lugia and Ho-Oh to knock the beasts back into the Indigo Plateau wreckage. Crystal sees the confrontation from a distance, and also see the Gym Leaders counteract the Masked Man's claim by breathing through pumps attached to their forearms. They then open up their forearm cases and toss a Mystic Water, Magnet, and Charcoal to their respective beasts, powering up their attacks to push Lugia and Ho-oh back.

Without warning, the Masked Man knocks Misty off Suicune. Misty breaks her fall with her forearm case, and orders Suicune to use Rain Dance. This, combined with Hydro Pump, nullifies Ho-Oh's Sacred Fire. Misty uses the opportunity to open up with what Suicune communicated to her, and accuse the Masked Man of kidnapping children and training them up to be mere assistants in his quest to control time. The Masked Man makes no attempt to deny, and turns away, only to notice Misty stubbornly holding onto him. Suicune then crosses its tails together, creating its crystal wall to surround the Masked Man and Misty.

Back at New Bark Town, Professor Elm and his assistant, Youngster Joey, fail to receive signal from their radio, and begin to worry about Gold who was at the Indigo Plateau at the time disaster struck.
