Ash finds a {{p|Pikachu}} statue and grabs it, even though Max tries to convince him not to, causing the pillar it was resting on the rise. Nearby, a wall flashes, matching the Pikachu statue. Ash set off a boulder trap, forcing the group to run away. They run into an explorer, calling them foolish kids. He summons {{DL|Brandon's Regis|Regirock}}, using {{m|Focus Punch}} to destroy the boulder. The man identifies himself as {{FB|Pyramid King|Brandon}} and scolds Ash for his carelessness. Brandon talks about the ruins, called Pokélantis, where the king tried to control {{p|Ho-Oh}}. The king disappeared after Ho-Oh destroyed the village. Team Rocket overhears and misinterprets that Ho-Oh is in the ruins, so they set off to find it.
Ash is excited that he might run into Ho-Oh, but Brandon doesn't want them to follow. Ash reveals that he won six Battle Frontier symbolsSymbols and runs off. Brandon and the others pursue Ash. Meanwhile, Team Rocket finds a {{p|Smoochum}} statue and sets off a boulder trap similar to the one Ash set off.
Ash runs into the door leading into the king’s chamber, and he manages to get inside. However, the others cannot follow as quickly. Brandon tries to find the mechanism that opens the king's chamber. Inside the king’s chamber, Ash finds the king's throne, with the stone orb shaped like a [[Poké Ball]] resting on it. Thinking Ho-Oh is inside, he grabs the orb and holds it above his head. Brandon gets the door open and they get inside. Brandon tries to get Ash to set the orb down, but the orb activates. A dark voice chants a spell as dark energy envelops Ash, causing him to fall to his knees. The others rush to him, and Ash starts to laugh, but it sounds deeper...
Team Rocket finds another passageway. They hear a roar, thinking its Ho-Oh. They run down the hall, finding a {{p|Salamence}} instead. It uses {{m|Flamethrower}} to send them running. Meanwhile, Brandon takes the king and the others to the pyramid, meeting [[Scott]]. Inside, Scott finds out that Ash is possessed, while revealing that Brandon explores ruins as well as being the brain.
The battle is set for a one-on-one match. Brandon sends out Regirock. Ash wakes up inside another dimension. However, he does see what the king sees. Noticing the battle, Ash summons {{AP|Sceptile}}, which the king replicates in reality. Ash orders Sceptile to use {{m|Leaf Blade}}, which the king replicates. Regirock uses {{m|Iron Defense}} to nullify the attack. The king orders Sceptile to use {{m|Bullet Seed}}, but Iron Defense also nullifies it. The king orders Sceptile to fire Bullet Seed at the ceiling. Sceptile is hesitant at first but obeys. The attack causes rocks to crash atop Regirock, burying it. The group notes that Ash would never attack in that manner. Brandon calls the king a coward for his tactic, but Ash hears the insult from his isolation. Ash breaks the spell, taking control of his body to counter the insult, but the king’s control quickly returns.
Regirock breaks out of the tomb and immediately uses {{m|Hyper Beam}}. The king orders Sceptile to use the referee as cover. Sceptile initially hesitates, not used to Ash using such dirty tricks, but the king tells him to obey and Sceptile is made to move behind the referee which forces Brandon to cancel the attack. The king uses Sceptile’s Leaf Blade on Regirock’s leg, causing it to kneel down. Regirock uses {{m|Lock-On}}, targeting Sceptile. The king orders another Leaf Blade on the other leg, rendering Regirock immobile. Regirock uses Hyper Beam again. Sceptile's attempt to dodge fails as Lock-On ensures that the attack hits. Hyper Beam comes around and Sceptile is blasted to the ground and faints. The king loses, but he refuses, ordering Pikachu to go. May, Brock, and Max block Pikachu and try to break through to Ash. The king appears resistant and orders Pikachu to use Thunderbolt, but it refuses. Brandon reminds Ash that they’re his good friends, and Ash gets {{AP|Pikachu}} to use {{m|Thunderbolt}} on his body. The attack frees Ash from captivity and purges the king from his body. Brandon uses the spell to abolish the king back to the orb.
