Red tries to lure Lorelei and Agatha out so that they might become distracted and let it slip how they are controlling Bruno by having Aero hold onto Red and Fly up. Lorelei's Jynx uses its long hair to wrap around Red, restraining him from the outside. Red tells Lorelei that he does not know where Giovanni is, the same going for Giovanni's Earth Badge. Lorelei says that "your eyes tell me that you are not lying". Jynx then puts Red down and Lorelei tells Red that they had another reason for bringing him there: they want him to join them. Red refuses, and sends out Gyara, Saur, and Snor. Agatha sends out Gastly and Bruno (still controlled) sends out Hitmonlee. With the power of the Badge Energy Amplifier, they (Lorelei's Jynx included) do a combination attack of Ice, Fighting, and Ghost powers, which knock out Gyara, Saur, and Snor. Lorelei's Jynx creates an ice doll that is a model of Red. Lorelei puts lipstick '×'s on the ice doll's wrists and ankles, with ice handcuffs appearing on Red in those same places, immobilizing Red's feet and hands. Lorelei also puts lipstick '×'s on an ice doll of Pika.
Agatha's Gastly cloaks the mountain they are on in a mist of illusion. Their work done, Lorelei and Agatha teleport away. To defend himself from Bruno, Red sends out Pika, whose paws are immediately ice-handcuffed. Red puts his foot on a weak rock, which crumbles under him. Red manages to hold onto a rock sticking out, and tells Pika to run away, find someplace warm, and return to Pallet Town. Pika starts to run, with Hitmonlee chasing it. Red, happy that one of his Pokémon can be safe, drops to the ground. He says that Pika can't tell anyone what happened, and says, "If only there were a Trainer who could read your thoughts...," and freezes.
Pika wakes up on Cerise Island, with Yellow wondering what Pika was trying to tell him.
Pika continues his dream of the events on how Red got frozen.
