Team Rocket see the Nimbasa City's Underground and continue their plans. Palpitoad uses Hydro Pump on Darmanitran, defeating it and Ash wins the battle. Next, Luke and Iris will battle. Luke is annoyed by the fact Bianca was not directing the battle, but his Zorua instead. He tells her to point at the fight he and Iris will have, though Bianca thinks he should worry about his problems. In any case, the battle starts. Iris sends Axew and Luke his Golett. Axew goes to scratch Golett, but since Golett is Ghost type, the attack fails, so Golett bashes Axew with Mega Punch. Axew stands up and uses Dragon Rage, but Golett used Double Team, so Axew banished an illusion.
Golett attacks with Gyro Ball, hurting Axew. He does it one more time, but Axew runs away from Golett. Georgia is sceptical Iris will win this battle.

Bianca, as always, is going after Zorua. That night, Team Rocket to conclude their plans. Mewoth tells them that he will tie the loose ends and goes away.
The next day, Ash and Iris have the final battle. Luke says that he does not have a good caption of the battle, so Bianca leads him nearer, so Luke is satisfied.

Both have missed, though Excadrill grabs Pikachu by his tail. Pikachu tries to get free, but cannot. Excadrill uses Focus Blast, pushing Pikachu away. Pikachu uses Iron Tail, damaging Excadrill.
