The round starts with Bill quickly introducing Crystal to the handheld storage system. Suddenly, a group of Staryu start ganging up on him. After Bill's Pokégear communication is cut off, Crystal rushes to a nearby amusement park.

When she arrives at the amusement park, she finds Bill on the Ferris Wheel, caged by the Staryu. After Bonee attacks them, they bounce onto a running roller coaster. Crystal transfers Natee inside the Staryu cage by using the new handheld storage system, and Natee uses Drill Peck, breaking the enclosure. She quickly throws Fast Balls at the Staryu, and catches all of them. After spotting a wild Elekid, Crystal runs off to catch it.
