All of a sudden, a gust of wind knocks the boulders loose. At the last second they are saved by a pack of Arcanine. Their trainers, Ramona and Keegan, appear and ask them if they are OK. They are delivering Fire Stones to a nearby town and offer Ash and friends a ride part of the way to Olivine City. However, Team Rocket appears and steals the Fire Stones. Now Ash and friends must help Ramona and Keegan get them back.
