The next day, everyone is heading back to the battle arena.

Jon: According to the schedule, you and Nathan are the first two battles.

Nathan: No pressure.

Rosa: None at all.

Nate: Well, I better get onto the battlefield.

The screen fades to the battlefield, showing everyone but Nate sitting in the stands. Nate is on the battlefield with another male trainer in a suit called Lucas.

Nate sends out Blastoise.

Tyler: Blastoise!

Jon: Haven't seen him in ages.

The crowd cheer in excitement.

Hippowdon uses Double Team creating lots of fakes.

Nate: You think that will help.

Jon: You'll see.

Nate: Protect!

Blastoise uses Protect and doesn't take any damage.

Nate: Now, Hydro Pump!

Nate: Blastoise, great work. Return.

Nate returns Blastoise

Drake: Why did he return Blastoise?

Nate gets out a Pokeball with a blue sticker, and Jon recognises it straight away.

Jon: Oh dear. He really is using Snorlax at a time like this isn't he.

Tyler: Snorlax?

Kyle: Nate wouldn't, would he?

Nate throws the Pokeball and Snorlax pops out.

Rosa: Yep he would.

Lucas: A Snorlax?! Are you dumb!

Nate: Nope. Metronome!

Nathan: Is he for real?

Josie: Seems to be so.

Snorlax begins to move his hands, using Metronome.

Lucas: Right. Focus Punch!

Conkeldurr runs towards Snorlax and then hits with Focus Punch, but Snorlax barely moves backwards.

Nate: Go!

Snorlax stops moving his hands and Metronome becomes Sludge Wave which hits Conkeldurr.

Lucas: Interesting. Drain Punch!

Conkeldurr uses Drain Punch, taking some HP from Snorlax.

Nate: Belly Drum!

Snorlax uses Belly Drum and loses a lot of health, but maximises Snorlax's attack.

Lucas: Well that may have been a good idea, but against Conkeldurr, your Snorlax will fall soon. Rock Slide!

Conkeldurr uses Rock Slide but Snorlax dodges.

Nate: Rest!

Snorlax uses Rest and restores all of his health and also falls asleep.

Lucas: What kind of strategy are you doing?

Josie: Rest, Belly Drum, Metronome. Its a strange moveset to have.

Jon: Nate has won a lot of battles with Snorlax.

Nate: Sleep Talk!

Snorlax uses Sleep Talk and uses Metronome.

Rosa: What?

Josie: Metronome shouldn't be able to be chosen when Sleep Talk has been used.

Jon: Nate has trained with Snorlax a lot to make sure that Metronome can work.

Constantine: Unreal.

Metronome becomes Comet Punch and hits Conkeldurr.

Lucas: Poison Jab.

Conkeldurr heads towards Snorlax using Poison Jab.

Nate: Sleep Talk.

Snorlax gets Metronome again, and Metronome becomes Acrobatics and counters Poison Jab and then hits Conkeldurr.

Nate: You done great Snorlax, return.

Nate: And finally, Luxio!

Nate sends out Luxio.

Rosa: A Luxio?

Rotom-Dex: Interesting.

Rotom-Dex scans Luxio.

Nate: Thunder Fang!

Luxio hits Gallade with Thunder Fang and then skids towards Nate.

Lucas: Slash!

Nate: Crunch!

Gallade heads towards Luxio using Slash, but Luxio counters with Crunch, keeping hold on Gallade.

Lucas: Leaving Luxio close range is a mistake.

Nate: I call it a good strategy,

Josie: Why is Luxio still there?

Nate: Thunder!

Luxio uses Thunder and hits both himself and Gallade but an explosion happens, causing both Pokemon to get blown back towards their trainers. Gallade falls over and is unable to battle.
