Pikachu and the others were having a hard time due to their opponents great teamwork, which led to Fennekin being defeated by Squirtle. After taking some hits, Pikachu jumped to dodge a Flamethrower, but was then targeted by Bulbasaur's Solar Beam. Much to Shauna and her friends' surprise, however, Chespin used Vine Whip to pull Pikachu up, giving him the opportunity to defeat Charmander with Thunderbolt. Pikachu then defeated Bulbasaur with Electro Ball and Squirtle with Thunderbolt, giving Ash, Serena and Clemont the win {{tt|and the spot on the Hall of Fame|Despite having one point less than Team Chikorita, as the final scores were inconsistent with the points given on screen}}.

Pikachu was able to get to up and showed his strength by unleashing his electricity. Lucario then used Metal Sound, which Pikachu drowned out using his Thunderbolt hitting Lucario as well. Then Lucario used Aura Sphere, but Pikachu used Iron Tail to bounce off it and jump, similar to the Draco Meteor Climb. Lucario jumped towards Pikachu and used Bone Rush, but Pikachu countered with Iron Tail. While both Pokémon were clashing with their attacks, they both crashed down on the ground. Both Pokémon, however, were still standing. Lucario's Power-Up Punch was then countered with Iron Tail, and its Aura Sphere then collided with Pikachu's Electro Ball.

Pikachu hit Bunnelby with Quick Attack, which Bunnelby quickly recovered from and managed to hit Pikachu several times with Double Slap. Pikachu then used Iron Tail which the Digging Pokémon caught with his ears. This reminded Bonnie of their first battle. Instead of letting Pikachu counter with Electro Ball, Bunnelby used his new move, {{m|Wild Charge}}, dealing major damage to Pikachu. Bunnelby then hit Pikachu with another Dig.
