Plot
Next, {{an|Kiawe}} and [[Acerola]] call out their Pokémon, {{TP|Kiawe|Marowak}} and {{p|Gengar|Rapooh}}, respectively. Acerola orders Rapooh to use {{m|Shadow Ball}}, though the attack is destroyed by Marowak's {{m|Bonemerang}}. Rapooh then uses {{m|Shadow Punch}}, but Marowak manages to block it with {{m|Shadow Bone}}. Rapooh retaliates with another Shadow Punch, which strikes Marowak, who is then immobilized by Rapooh's {{a|Cursed Body}} [[Ability]]. Acerola orders Rapooh to use {{m|Thief}}, and it promptly steals Marowak's bone club, instantly limiting Marowak's move-set. Rapooh takes the opportunity to lash Marowak with a Shadow Ball-Shadow Punch combination. As Rapooh readies another Shadow Punch, Marowak is freed from Cursed Body and slams into its opponent with {{m|Iron Head}}. The impact winds Rapooh, who then absorbs Marowak into its body. However, Marowak emerges from Rapooh's body with its bone club in hand. Acerola orders another Shadow Ball, but Marowak retaliates, batting the Shadow Ball back at Rapooh before striking it with Shadow Bone, defeating it and allowing Kiawe to advance to the next round.
