Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.

The chapter begins with the legend of Kyogre and Groudon, describing how their feud ravaged the world until the Red and Blue Orbs brought it to an end, and the two Pokémon vanished into the depths of the sea, never to be seen again.

Atop Mt. Pyre, an old woman tells her husband that enemies have invaded the mountain and Tate and Liza are fighting them. Although worried that the twins are too young to take the responsibility off their hands, the old couple vow to protect the Orbs no matter the cost. Back at Tate and Liza's location, the twins continue to face the Team Magma Grunts in a Double Battle.

By boosting their stats with Cosmic Power in addition to the Rock-type that their Pokémon have, the twins gains a huge advantage in the fight. Tate and Liza continue to attack their foes with powerful moves that can hit both targets, which begins to whittle their opponents down. Liza begins bragging and tells her foes to leave, only to start staggering because of the intense heat.

Suddenly, their foes rise up again, signifying that they haven't decided to give up. As Tate and Liza continue to battle their foes, Blaise watches from above. Blaise reveals that the Team Magma Grunts the twins are fighting are only illusions he created with the heat. Tate and Liza are completely fooled, and they continue to wonder why their attacks aren't hitting.

As the two fight something that isn't there, Blaise goes to search for the Red and Blue Orbs. Using the Scanner, Blaise finds the old couple and easily swats them away. He picks the two gems from their pedestals, confident over his victory.
