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

Fleeing from Xerneas and Yveltal's fight, the citizens are wonder what is going on. Meanwhile, Y is still trying to get X out of his room. Looking through his window, X realizes what is happening. He still refuses to get out because of the journalists. Trevor almost gets hit from the fight, which Y notices. Y calls Rhyhorn and hops on it with Tierno and Shauna. Trevor is launched in the air and grabbed by Tierno. He drops one of the three Pokémon he was holding and Y tells her friends to hold tight to her Rhyhorn as she starts flying back to X.

Meanwhile, Xerosic, Bryony, and Celosia look at the explosion, disappointed that it is impossible to capture these Pokémon for now. They say that they possess the ultimate weapon, and that they need the energy of a Legendary Pokémon to activate it. Celosia then asks a Team Flare Grunt about the status of Team Flare's Squad B, who informs her that they have arrived at the target's house. Their goal is to obtain the Mega Ring for the Key Stone that is embedded inside of it. Unfortunately, they are unable to enter X's house and Aliana decides to have Pyroar burn down the house.

Arriving at X's house, Y notices the fire and lands on the ground, where X is cornered by Team Flare. Seeing Y is a nuisance to them, Mable orders her Houndoom to attack. Biting Y, it sends her flying and into a wall. Houndoom then gets punched by Kanga. Aliana then orders Pyroar to attack, burning Kanga as she protects both X and Y. Seeing the Mega Ring on X's wrist, they ask Pyroar to grab him. Li'l Kanga, from her mother's pouch, is sadly watching X being dragged by Pyroar. Then the Mega Ring activates and Li'l Kanga Mega Evolves and takes out both Houndoom and Pyroar. Seeing that they are at disadvantage, Team Flare decides to retreat.

Elsewhere, Xerneas and Yveltal are no longer fighting. Tierno, Shauna, and Trevor are looking down at what remains of their houses. Y then walks up and asks if everyone is okay. Shauna replies that her Furfrou got blown away in the explosions. Trevor informs them that he lost one of the three Pokémon boxes he received from Professor Sycamore. Shauna wants to go find her Furfrou while Trevor wants to go see Sycamore since he lost contact with him when his Holo Caster broke. They all agree to go see Sycamore as he may know something about what happened. Shauna comments that she is happy that they are back together, just like when they were kids. Telling X that he needs to leave since he is being targeted and that the whole town is gone, they depart from their hometown.
