Ash then gives ithim tips on how to dodge, saying that youhe needneeds to watch your opponent closely and dodge when the moment comes. They try, and though Cottonee stares at Scraggy, he gets hit by the Headbutt. However, but the second time aroundis more successful, with Cottonee guardsguarding itselfhimself with Cotton Guard.

Cilan them comes up with an idea;: Cottonee can'tcannot fly by themselves, and instead, they have to ride the wind. Iris then says they'll will have to sense the wind's movements, which she confirms are going south. The trio then heads south in that direction with the hopes of finding the Cottoneefemale. Meanwhile, Team Rocket have been looking for the Cottonee too, using [[Jessie's Woobat]].
