Pikachu was able to dodge Magmar's attack, but just by an inch and is now hanging from the edge of the battlefield. Before anything worse happens, Ash forfeits. He takes Pikachu to the hot spring to heal it, and is trying to come up with ways to beat Blaine. Meanwhile, Team Rocket enters the battlefield to capture Magmar, but when Magmar is unaffected by their freeze guns, they proceed to freeze the entire area. This causes the volcano to become really unstable. Now Ash, Misty, Brock, and Blaine must stop the volcano from erupting, and Ash must still figure out a way to battle and defeat Blaine.
