Sabrina's Alakazam then hands out Spoons of Destiny to pick battle partners. The battle plan is to face each of the Elite Four in groups of two. The first pair is Yellow and Blaine, the second is Koga and Blue, the third pair is Sabrina and Green, and the fourth pair, both with unmoving Spoons of Destiny, is Lt. Surge and Bill. Afterwards, the groups split up. Blue then gives Koga back his Golbat.
