It's the following day at the Ranger Union. As she is now a top ranger, Erma gives Kate her new Battonage styler. Erma comments a lot of good people had graduated from a Class 27: Rhythmi, Isaac, Keith, Kellyn and now Kate. She tells Kate not to investigate her styler and therefore blow it up, Kate smiling innocently whilst hiding a screwdriver behind her back. Erma recalls how Kellyn also had a habit of getting himself into trouble at school and Barlow wonders where the top ranger is. He asks Crawford since the toptwo legleft the Vien Town Base together, Crawford assuming Kellyn must be outside. Kate offers to go and find him and heads outside. At the base of the steps, she finds Kellyn constantly capturing and releasing Pokemon although he won't tell her why. Barlow and Crawford appear behind her and ask the same question, but all Kate can say is that Kellyn has been acting like this ever since he read the Almia Times yesterday. Barlow demands an explanation out of Kellyn who has gone still and quiet, although all the top ranger does in response is silently hold up yesterday's Almia Times. Barlow remembers the article said something about strange noises being heard from Altru Tower although they're waiting for Sven and Wendy to return from Fiore before diving into anything. He realises this response doesn't satisfy Kellyn. Kellyn tells them about Team Dim Sun's plans that were halted by himself last year, and then points to the picture and asks them what they see. Barlow responds to it being a smudge, Crawford a hair. Kate then rushes over with a magnifying glass and asks Kellyn to give her the newspaper. Kellyn flatly refuses and complains about her 'dirty hands', even when she proves they're clean. A fight breaks out between them until Kate relents and makes Kellyn hold the paper for her whilst she magnifies the 'smudge', which actually turns out to be Darkrai. Kellyn explains that Darkrai's appearance may have something to do with the darkness trying to control 
Pokemon again and wishes to investigate the Lumina Crystal. Kellyn attempts to leave but Barlow refuses to let him. As a heated battle of wills breaks out, Erma breaks it up and makes it an official mission for Vien Base. Kate gets excited as it will be her first mission, but Kellyn is reluctant to let her come along. Kate once again apologises for dirtying his collection and tells him they have a lot in common: both being top rangers, having Pacharisu partners and being from Class 27. Kellyn refers to Kate as a ditz who will get in the way. Kate furiously chases after Kellyn, complaining that he could at least use her name since she's being nice to him, whilst Barlow and Crawford sweat-drop.
