Plot: grammar
The battle is set for a one-on-one match. Brandon sends out Regirock. Ash wakes up inside another dimension but can see through the King's eyes. 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 then orders {{m|Bullet Seed}}, but Iron Defense also nullifies it. With a snide grin, the King orders Sceptile to fire Bullet Seed at the ceiling. Sceptile is hesitant at first, but obeys. The attack causes rubble to crash on top of and bury Regirock. 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 within the King. Ash temporarily breaks the spell, denies that he is a coward, but soon loses control to the King.
Max thinks Regirock is down and out, but the Rock Peak Pokémon breaks out of its tomb and immediately uses {{m|Hyper Beam}}. In an astonishing move, the King orders Sceptile to use the referee as cover. Sceptile initially hesitates, not used to Ash using such dirty tricks,. but theThe King tells him to obey, andso Sceptile leaps behind the frightened referee, [[Samuel]], andforcing Brandon is forced 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 refuses to admit defeat and orders Pikachu to battle. May, Brock, and Max defend 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 him. The attack frees Ash from captivity and purges the King from his body. Brandon uses a counter of the spell to banish the King's spirit back to the orb. Ash returns to normal, much to his friends' relief. Brandon admits to Scott that Ash's friends freed him from the spell.
Meanwhile, Team Rocket are still in the ruins. They find a hidden room between two sliding walls that houses a mere {{p|Hoothoot}}. Jessie throws a rock, angering Hoothoot and prompting it to attack Team Rocket's bottoms as they flee. They unknowingly activate a spring tile that sends them flying out of the ruins.
