Without warning, the Masked Man knocks Misty off Suicune. Misty breaks her fall with her forearm case, and orders Suicune to use Rain Dance. This, combined with Hydro Pump, nullifies Ho-Oh's Sacred Fire. Misty uses the opportunity to open up with what Suicune communicated to her, and accuse the Masked Man of kidnapping children and training them up to be mere assistants in his quest to control time. The Masked Man makes no attempt to deny, and turns away, only to notice Misty stubbornly holding onto him. Suicune then crosses its tails together, creating its crystal wall to surround the Masked Man and Misty.
