On the French, German, Italian, Spanish, Hong Kong, and Taiwan YouTube channels, the video was released with Japanese audio and subtitles in the respective language.


Focusing in on a castle stadium complex, Cynthia, Steven Stone, and Lance, flanked by their signature Pokémon, await their next challengers. Korrina, Cheren, and Misty rush up the stairs to take the Champion trio on. Cheren orders his Stoutland to attack with Giga Impact, but it is struck back by Cynthia's Garchomp with Dragon Claw. Korrina's Lucario leaps to Stoutland's defense, helping to break its fall. Lance's Dragonite follows up with a Hyper Beam, but Misty's Starmie protects its allies from the oncoming attack with Light Screen. Steven calls for Metagross to attack with Flash Cannon. As the swirling beams of light chase after the opposition, Lucario fires off an Aura Sphere, Starmie uses Thunderbolt, and Stoutland retaliates with a Crunch attack.

Elsewhere, Scottie is seen with a Pikachu on his shoulder. Brock and Rosa, accompanied by her Snivy, rush out a house onto their next adventure. Brock's Onix soon rumbles into view and joins its Trainer. Similarly, Bettie, Barry, and Iris leave a Pokémon Center. Soon, Brock and his friends reach the bustling Centra City and pause to watch the ongoing match featuring the three Champions from before from an overhead screen. The female Trainer and her associates exit through a drawbridge, and they all stop for a moment as the female Trainer checks her Poryphone for directions.

A battle wages on in the nearby forest. Brock's Onix bursts through the ground and uses Rock Slide at its opponents. However, Erika is unfazed and has her Vileplume use Petal Dance. A Beauty orders her Lotad to use Energy Ball, and a Lass has her Whimsicott use Leech Seed to slow Onix down. As Onix struggles, Rosa and Scottie order Snivy and Pikachu into the fray. Snivy manages to free Onix of the Leech Seed with Leaf Tornado, but it is struck down by Lotad's oncoming Energy Ball, though Brock catches Snivy and quickly helps it recover with a spritz of Potion. Pikachu finds itself surrounded by its three opponents, but quickly blasts them away with Thunderbolt. Having defeated Erika and the other two Trainers, Scottie is given a Tranquility Badge in recognition of his victory. Afterwards, Erika decides to travel with Scottie and his troupe.

Meanwhile, Bettie and her friends run through a desert wasteland to reach a circular battle facility. Inside, they take on Skyla, Flint, and Acerola. Red and Blue watch from above as the trio take on Acerola's Palossand. Blue remarks that everyone in the world is gathering in Pasio and forming new teams, swearing to prove his team as the strongest one of them all. Other teams are shown, including Norman and Brendan; Professors Oak, Sycamore, and Kukui; Sabrina, Fantina, and Elesa; Giovanni, Archer, and Ariana; Wulfric and Crasher Wake; Lusamine and her children Lillie and Gladion; Hugh, Silver, and Wally; the Striaton Gym brothers Cilan, Chili, and Cress; Caitlin, Palmer, and Thorton; and Nanu and Grimsley. Paulo, Team Break, Rachel, Sawyer, and Lear are then revealed. The battle continues to rage on, so Bettie and her associates have their Pokémon unleash a colorful combination of Thunderbolt, Bubble Beam, and Dragon Pulse at the opposition.
