Blue has his eyes paralyzed shut, and Koga has an Arbok wrapped around him, immobilizing him in his battle against Agatha: Arbok vs. Arbok. Koga's Arbok tries to attack with a Glare attack, which fails. Agatha's Arbok gives Koga's Arbok a hard Body Slam. Then it releases Koga's Arbok and bites its tail off, apparently knocking Arbok out.
Enraged, Koga sends out Weezing and Muk and tells them to use Poison Gas and Smog, which are repelled by a new invulnerability pattern of Arbok's. It then attacks Muk and Weezing, knocking them out. Koga throws five ninja stars at Agatha, which miss. Then, to Agatha's surprise, Koga's Arbok grows a new tail. Agatha sneers at Koga for thinking that that will make him win, and then, Golbat returns. However, it is Koga's Golbat, not Agatha's.
Blue then appears with his eyes open. The ninja stars Koga threw were Poké Ball ninja stars, and the Pokémon inside were holding paralysis-healing medicine. Koga's Golbat then uses Leech Life on Koga. It then spits Koga's blood at Agatha's Arbok's pattern, covering and destroying the effects of the pattern. Agatha's Arbok tries a Bind attack, but Blue's Golduck uses Confusion defeating Agatha's Arbok and Agatha. Afterwards, Koga and Blue leave and continue though Cerise Island.
