{{nihongo|Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! (Part 2)|ポケモンレンジャー!波導のリオル!!(後編)|Pokemon Ranger! The wave-guiding Riolu! (Part 2)}} is the 20th episode of [[Pokémon: DP Battle Dimension]].
Pokemon Hunter J has trapped Ash and a kidnapped Riolu in the heart of a blazing forest fire, so she can capture Riolu for her cilent--and Ash is unable to stop her from seizing Riolu and flying away! In another part of the forest, Kellyn recruits some Blastoise to quench the flames, but Ash must rely on Chimchar's Dig to keep him safe. As soon as the coast is clear, Ash sneaks onboard J's ship and confronts her in person only to discover that she already knew he was there. J then ejects Ash from the ship in mid-air, but a timely rescue by Kellyn and Staraptor keeps the show from coming to a premature end.
 
   
As Ash and his friends consider their next move, Ash realizes he can use his Aura connection with Riolu to sense its location. Everyone saddles up on some Dodrio and sets off in pursuit, hoping to intercept J before she can hand off Riolu to her cilent. They reach J's rendezvous point, but they're too late: the cilent has already gotten Riolu, and he leaps on a Fearow and takes off with his prize! While Dawn, Brock, Officer Jenny and Solana hold off the cilent's troops, Ash and Kellyn spur on their Dodrio in pursuit.

==Episode Plot==
  +
Ash and the Pokémon are surrounded by flames. However, Buizel 's Water Gun cools down some flame and they escape. However, J fires and turns Riolu in a statue. J tells him she sparred Riolu from the flames, but Ash is not convinced. Salamence uses Hyper Beam, though they evade. Salamence uses Flamethrower to deal with them. J is satisfied to have eliminated the threat. The Pokémon of the forest go out. Kellyn spots some Blastoise and captures them. They use Rain Dance to douse the fire in the forest. Kellyn knows J put the fire, so they go to search for Riolu and Ash.
   
Kellyn's Dodrio leaps onto Fearow to bring it down, yet it still doesn't convince the cilent to give up Riolu. He flees into a cave and blocks the path behind him, not realizing that Kellyn can recruit a Donphan to clear the way and Ash can use Aura to find Riolu. The cilent is finally cornered and knocked out by Pikachu's Volt Tackle, his men are subdued and put in custody. As for J, she escapes to hunt another day, but Riolu is safely headed home to the Paradise Kingdom. So for now, Ash and his friends are happy with a job well done as they continue down the road to Pastoria City!

The men caught the Riolu and put it in the vehicle. Team Rocket got out of the hole, which is filled with water. Ash is safe, as Chimchar dug out a tunnel to escape. Suddenly, Ash hears something and sees the vehicles come in the air ship. Ash and Pikachu quickly go into the ship. The rain stopped, so Brock, Dawn and Kellyn run. The air ship passes near them, so they now know J has Riolu. J contacts the man who wants Riolu. J lowers it a bit, so the man is convinced the Riolu is real. Ash and Pikachu came into the room to rescue Riolu. J sends Drapion, who raises Ash. Ash kicks it and frees himself. However, they fall in a trap and fall down. They fall down out of the air ship, but fortunately, a Staraptor saves them, as Kellyn used to capture it.

  +
The air ship disappears. Ash and Pikachu are transported to Brock and Dawn. Kellyn sets free Staraptor. He receives a call from Solana, who, along with Officer Jenny, failed to arrest the contractors, as they escaped. If they succeed, the men will leave no tracks. Ash wants Riolu to know where it is and yells. J senses something and looks to Riolu. Riolu's aura gives info to Ash, they are near some canyons. They run towards there, while Team Rocket would like to follow them to get revenge on J. Kellyn captured some Dodrio and they charge towards the location. Ash senses the aura is stronger, so they are closer. The contractors came and apologize for waiting. J's man gives them Riolu, but the heroes came in time.
  +
  +
Ash sends Staravia, who uses Quick Attack and knocks the Riolu's statue out of the contractor's hands. J has the money, so she and her men go back in the air ship. One of the contractors' men sends Golem, who uses Hyper Beam, hitting Ash. J's ship flies away, so the men go back in the truck to go away. However, Staravia's Quick Attack causes the tires to be cut. The men send more Pokémon, while the contractor his Fearow to get away. Solana and Officer Jenny came, so while they fight the men, Ash and Kellyn go to save Riolu. Golem and Rhyhorn go to use Sandstorm, but are stopped by Piplup's BubbleBeam.

The man sees there are many ways he can go, so sends Aggron, who uses Rock Smash to cut the way by causing the rocks to fall down. Kellyn captures a nearby Donphan and it rolls, pushing the rocks away. However, the Agrron caused all possible ways to be barred. Meanwhile, the heroes fight the men's Pokémon, but begin to lose. Solana captures a Trapinch, who uses Rock Tomb to surround the men and their Pokémon. Ash uses his aura to contact Riolu and senses in one of the ways. Donphan rolls and pushes the rocks away.

With Pikachu's Volt Tackle, the Aggron and the man are defeated. The contractor's men are also arrested. Jenny thanks them for the assistance. J gets another contract and orders to go there.

TriviaEdit

  • Professor Oak's Pokémon lecture: Capture Styler
  • Due to Ash's sensitivity to Aura, which was first introduced in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, he is able to sense Riolu from far distances, making the movie at least partially canon.
  • Solana has a different uniform than the one she had in her past appearances. The one she wears in this episode is based on Kate's from Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia.
  • For an unknown reason, Plusle is not seen with Solana.
  • This is the second dubbed TV episode to not only retain all of its Japanese background music, but also use no American-made music (unless one counts The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon as a dubbed TV episode).
  • Jessie makes the comment that Team Rocket should, "Climb every mountain. Ford every stream." This phrase is from The Sound of Music.
  • Music from Destiny Deoxys, Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea and Lucario and the Mystery of Mew is used as background music.
  • This episode marks one of the extremely rare instances that Ash ever intentionally hurts a Pokémon, as he kicks J's Drapion in the face in order to escape from its claws.

MistakesEdit

  • Dawn's Pachirisu used Discharge, despite the four Pokémon it was up against (Rhyhorn, Nidoking, Graveler and Golem) being part Ground-type, and therefore immune to Electric attacks. Same happened with Pikachu and Aggron.
  • Part of Ash's hair disappears in the closing scenes. This can be seen when Ash is talking to Riolu's Trainer.
  • In one scene, a wild Doduo has only one head.
  • Hunter J's pockets are miscolored in some scenes.
