has chosen Pikachu
to battle [[Harrison (Johto)|]]'s Kecleon
. Kecleon disappears by using its Color Change
Ability to evade Quick Attack
. Pikachu locks on by listening, and he chases Kecleon but Kecleon uses its Lick
attack to confuse Pikachu, then tosses him with its tongue. Harrison then orders a Psybeam
attack, and it hits Pikachu but Pikachu stands up and hides in the grass. But Kecleon uses its tongue to cut the grass, but it is grabbed by Pikachu and Ash orders a Thunderbolt
, knocking Kecleon out. Harrison recalls Kecleon.
Harrison then sends out Sneasel, the same one he captured before the tournament opened. Pikachu uses another Thunderbolt, but Sneasel dodges and uses a Metal Claw, knocking out Pikachu.
Ash takes a second to collect Pikachu from the field, then sends out Totodile. Totodile uses Water Gun, but Sneasel attempts to use Metal Claw, but Sneasel is bitten on the arm by Totodile. Totodile finishes Sneasel with its tail, leaving Sneasel unable to continue the battle.
Harrison chooses Hypno to fight next. Totodile uses Scary Face, but Hypno is totally unfazed by the attack. Hypno then uses Hypnosis, taking full control of Totodile. Next Hypno uses a Psychic attack to send Totodile flying, knocking it out.
Ash sends out Snorlax, but Snorlax appears to be sleeping peacefully. Although this would prevent Snorlax from being affected by Hypnosis, Hypno takes advantage of the situation by using Dream Eater on Snorlax. This soon however unintentionally wakes Snorlax up, as it is angry at having its dreams stolen & Ash's mother further illustrates the point by making a remark about Snorlax's angry expression. Hypno is then blasted by a Hyper Beam and is knocked out.
There's a five minute intermission due to three of Harrison's Pokémon being unable to battle.
As the second half begins, Ash sends out Noctowl and Harrison chooses Steelix. Noctowl hits Steelix with Confusion, but Steelix counters with Sandstorm, which blinds Noctowl. Noctowl is hit with a Dig attack from Steelix, and Noctowl attempts to use Hypnosis. However, Steelix then uses Iron Tail which knocks Noctowl out of the match.
Ash sends Snorlax back out. Snorlax prepares to use its Hyper Beam, but Steelix binds Snorlax up. Steelix then uses Crunch before Snorlax uses Ice Punch to be free from Steelix's Bind. Snorlax proceeds to knock Steelix out with a Hyper Beam.
Harrison's next Pokémon is Houndoom. Snorlax uses Hyper Beam once more. However, Houndoom uses Counter to deflect the attack and Snorlax ends up getting blasted by its own Hyper Beam, and is taken out of the fight. Brock is amazed that Harrison's Houndoom can use Counter.
Ash's next Pokémon is Bayleef. This surprises Harrison, however, as a Grass-type Pokémon like Bayleef is weak against Fire-type Pokémon like Houndoom. Bayleef starts with Razor Leaf, but a Flamethrower attack from Houndoom burns the leaves. Ash orders Headbutt, while Harrison orders Bite. The attacks miss, but then, Bayleef uses Vine Whip around Houndoom's mouth, which prevents Houndoom from using Flamethrower and Bite. Bayleef tosses Houndoom to the ground, and then finishes the battle off with Body Slam.
Harrison is down to his last Pokémon—Blaziken. Professor Oak was surprised to see Blaziken, while Brock, however, notes Bayleef has to battle another type-advantaged Pokémon. Bayleef starts with Razor Leaf, but Blaziken uses its legs to kick the leaves in a flash (doing this with nothing but natural kicking ability and no moves or techniques of any kind), instead of using its Fire-type attacks. This impressive and shocking display of strength and speed causes Ash to determine to have Bayleef stay away from Blaziken as much as possible, therefore he orders a Vine Whip, but it was caught by Blaziken. Ash is shocked at another incredible display of reflexes while Blaziken proceeds to reel Bayleef in. Ash orders a Body Slam, to use Blaziken's power against it, but Blaziken uses Fire Punch. Bayleef is knocked out.
Now Ash is also down to his last Pokémon and he chooses Charizard. Harrison knows this will be challenging as Ash's Charizard is a high level Pokémon. Both Pokémon launch their Flamethrowers and the attacks meet in mid-air, resulting in a huge ball of fire.
