While Monta, Cheren, and Bianca were on their way to the Battle Subway, they encounter Muteki who challenged Monta to a Double Battle. Due to Monta's inexperience with Victini and its moves, Muteki easily won. The trio met up with Muteki again while they went to the Battle Subway. Monta had a rematch with Muteki, proving that he knew about handling Victini better. Unlike before, Monta was able to defeat Muteki. After the battle, Muteki admitted defeat and walked off in the sunset, much to the upset of Monta.
Hydreigon was sent out alongside Jellicent during a Double Battle against Monta. In both matches that Hydreigon participated in, it took the back seat as Jellicent did most of the battling. During the rematch, Hydreigon was defeated by Victini's V-create.
