Entei, Raikou and Suicune appear just in time to save Gold and the others. Grey turns up the power of his control device, but despite this, Entei destroys it. With the other Pokémon no longer under his control, Grey flees the stadium. His underlings stay, planning to escape and then set off the Electrode to explode. However, a Grunt accidentally sets off the switch for the Electrode early, causing them all to use Explosion. The three Legendary beasts use Roar, blowing away the Electrode to protect the stadium from crumbling. After this, they leave the city and run off into the distance.
Bill informs Gold and Whitney that the Summit has been cancelled and tells Gold that while he missed the summit, he was lucky to meet the three Legendary beasts. Gold is disappointed that he could not battle them, so Morty offers to teach him how to track the beasts if he can win in a Gym battle against him. Before they can fight, though, Black interrupts, stating that he should be the one to chase the beasts. Instead, he and Gold fight, Black leading with an injured Haunter. Gold doesn't want to fight due to his unfair advantage, but Bayleef insists on fighting anyways, defeating it.
Morty tells Gold a legend passed down in Ecruteak City - that the Legendary beasts are known to appear before Trainers which they consider truly powerful. Gold vows to better himself as a Trainer so that he can one day battle the three beasts.
