Zoey orders a {{m|Shock Wave}}, but since Glameow is confused it misses. Zoey notices the group as they cheer for Glameow, which then recovers and fires off another Shock Wave, but it is blocked by a {{m|Magical Leaf}} from Mismagius, and then the whole lot is sent back at Glameow with a {{m|Psywave}}. The combination knocks out Glameow, and the two battlers exchange compliments. As they shake hands, {{an|Brock}} butts in and professes his love for the other trainer; however {{TP|Brock|Croagunk}} {{m|Poison Jab|stops}} him. Zoey then introduces them to [[Fantina]], informing {{Ash}} that she is the {{ci|Hearthome}} [[Gym Leader]] as well as a [[Pokémon Coordinator]]. Fantina mentions that she has become a traveling trainer, much like the others, and so has no choice but to leave the Gym empty while she is away.
[[Team Rocket]]{{TRT}}, who have been listening in, discuss Fantina. [[James]] mentions that the "job description" reminds him of [[Juan|another Gym Leader]]. [[Jessie]] then decides that they need to figure out Fantina's style so that she can copy it to win contests.
In the nearby [[Pokémon Center]] Ash tries to persuade Fantina to go back to the gym so that he can challenge her. "Jessadia" then butts in and tries to get Fantina to talk about her role as a Gym Leader, but Fantina brushes them off, saying that she needs to go and train. Zoey then suggests that they will understand better if Fantina tells them why she became a traveling trainer. Fantina explains that with a lot of hard work, she was able to become top {{pkmn|Coordinator}} with her {{p|Misdreavus}}, and then the [[Hearthome Gym]], specializing in {{type|Ghost}}s was opened. However eventually some of the trainers would defeat her in a rematch, and she felt that she wan't giving them a good enough battle. Brock states that he understands exactly how she feels from when he was the [[Pewter City]] Gym Leader. Fantina also states that she has been working on a new battle style which incorporates the beauty of a [[Contest]] battle and the ferocity of a Gym battle. She says that she hasn't quite got it quite right yet, but agrees to a battle, as one of the first things that traveling trainers do when they meet is battle. However her Pokémon are too tired for two battles, so Ash and {{an|Dawn}} use the coin toss app on her [[Pokétch]].
