The Carbink start tackling the log as Diancie pulls Pangoro and Ariados follow them. The Carbink manage to carve out a hole, allowing Diancie to see Pangoro's face.
However, the Ariados appear and in order to protect his friends, Pangoro stands up and swings to intimidate Ariados. The Ariados disperse as Pangoro's presence. Pangoro is too dizzy from swinging and falls down, but has his log shattered into pieces. Diancie thanks Pangoro and they see a Pancham was also inside the log.
