'''Growing Out of Gengar''' (Japanese: '''VS ゲンガー''' ''VS. {{tt|Gangar|Gengar}}'') is the 52nd round of the [[Pokémon Adventures]] manga and the twelfth round in the {{chap|Yellow}}.
[[Agatha]] laughs as {{adv|Blue}} is suspended in the air by {{p|Gengar}}'s {{m|Dream Eater}}. {{tc|Camper|Evan}} watches in horror. Agatha says to Evan, "Look around a monument of human folly and selfishness." Evan questions this, and she begins to explain to him that the power{{FB|Kanto|Power plantPlant}} they stand in was once intended to be a center of a major industrial development, but was abandoned halfway through. However, it caused hundreds of Pokémon to leave their homes for the convenience of humans. Large amounts of industrial waste were left behind from the powerPower plant.Plant, Thiswhich served as fuel for {{p|Gastly}}, {{p|Haunter}}, and Gengar. {{type|Ghost}}s were attracted to the power plant because of the industrial waste. Agatha then reveals her identity to him as one of the [[Elite Four]] of [[Kanto]]. Blue begins to struggle inside the floating coffin, and Agatha laughs again, stating that it is impossible to break free of the {{m|Dream Eater}} from the inside. She then commands her Gengar to drain all the life force from him. Blue is then shocked to a dream of his past. In his dream, he is being thrown onto the floor. A man stays silent as he watches Blue. Blue cries out in frustration, saying that if he were able to use his Pokémon things would be easier. He then pleads with the man, saying, "Master...Master! Please let me use my Pokémon!" After saying this, {{adv|Blue}} demands to know why the {{pkmn|Trainer}}s themselves had to train if this was supposed to be [[Pokémon battle|Pokémon battling]]. The man begins to explain that Pokémon battling is only the Pokémon fighting and the Trainer merely giving orders. The Trainer suffers no injury at all. That is the reason why Trainers must train themselves. The Trainer's heart will never merge with their Pokémon's until they feel the attack and sharpen their own strengths. Then the man encourages Blue to grab the sword, hone his own strengths, and master the skills necessary to take down a foe himself...

Gengar and Haunter rush at each other to attack. Agatha chuckles and tells Gengar to use his full power to annihilate the Haunter and Evan screams encouragement to Haunter. Agatha wonders how long Evan will last. Suddenly the levitating coffin containing Blue begins to break and he begins to fall to the ground. Agatha wonders how the Dream Eater attack was weakened, and then recomposes herself, saying that Blue's {{p|Scyther}}'s physical attack were no use against formless Pokémon. Blue then is reminded of what his master once told him, that even though there's no form, you can still slice through an enemy without form so long as you grasp the essence of the foe. Blue calls for a {{m|Slash}} from Scyther, slicing Gengar and Gastly to pieces. Evan rejoices. Agatha reappears from the mist, and says that indeed Blue is {{adv|Professor Oak}}'s grandson. Blue then asks what Agatha was to his grandfather, but she disappears in a swirl of mist. Blue grunts in frustration from her disappearance and lack of answers. Evan then spots Blue walking out and catches up to him. Blue then recounts to him of the time when he battled Gas Pokémon like this before, and how he was taken over, used as a puppet, and totally defenseless. Blue says that was his first time when he was finally able to wield the sword as if it were a part of him. He gives his {{p|Lapras}} to Evan, telling him to do what he likes with it. Blue then says good-bye to Evan.
And Blue finishes the story to {{adv|Yellow}}.
