'''VS. Kirlia''' (Japanese: '''VSキルリア''' ''VS. Kirlia'') is the 321st round of the [[Pokémon Adventures]] manga in the {{chap|Emerald}}.
 
==Synopsis==
{{adv|Emeraldspoilers}} isn't too pleased to see {{adv|Ruby}} and {{adv|Sapphire}}, despite them formally introducing themselves as his allies, believing that [[Professor Oak]] sent them. The two correct Emerald and say it was [[Professor Birch]] who did, which doesn't impress Emerald either. Emerald is insistent that he doesn't need any help and turns to leave, with [[Emerald's Sceptile|Sceptile]] lashing out with an {{m|Iron Tail}} and tossing the two Trainer back. Sapphire is worried that they should follow, but Ruby points out that they're all due to meet up in the [[Battle Dome]] tournament in any case. As he starts moaning over how his clothes are stained with Emerald's urine from [[PS320|earlier]], Sapphire begins to criticize his habits and the two once again begin to bicker. [[Scott]], meanwhile, spots them from afar, noting that they have arrived as expected.
{{adv|Ruby}} and {{adv|Sapphire}} introduce themselves as two other Pokédex holders from Hoenn. {{adv|Emerald}} demands to know if it was {{adv|Professor Oak}} and {{adv|Crystal}} who sent them, but they correct him by stating that it was [[Professor Birch]] who sent them to help. Emerald states that he doesn't need help and runs off. Ruby and Sapphire try to get him to stay, but {{TP|Emerald|Sceptile}} lashes out with {{m|Iron Tail}}, sending the two Trainers flying.

Rara starts off with a {{m|Hypnosis}} to put Dusclops to sleep. Dusclops manages to break free of the spell, so it fires of a super effective {{m|Shadow Ball}} at Rara. Despite the endless barrage of Shadow Balls, Rara manages to keep standing, so Emerald has Dusclops use {{m|Fire Punch}}. The attack gives Rara a burn, making it so that Rara will lose health as the battle goes on. Tucker questions if that will help him win as he gestures towards Dusclops. Emerald notes how Dusclops is burned, too, which is the result of Rara's Ability, {{a|Synchronize}}.
 
Tucker confirms that the Ability forces the user's opponent to share the same status conditions, while Scott suggests that Rara had used {{m|Imprison}} earlier, meaning that none of Dusclops's Shadow Ball attacks had actually worked. Emerald is shocked to see that all of his attacks were for nothing as both Pokémon fall to the ground, fainted. Emerald realizes that his opponent is strong, while Ruby merely replies with a grin. For his last Pokémon, Ruby sends out Mimi.
 
Ruby muses if Emerald will send out Sceptile for the type advantage again. Emerald is confused to see how Ruby is so confident that he doesn't care about type match-ups. Either way, Emerald sends out Sceptile to do battle, only to be interrupted by Ruby. Much to Emerald's irritation, Ruby begins arguing with the staff about the stadium lighting not showing Mimi's good side.
