Everett sent out his Furfrou to battle against Ash, but Serena stopped the latter from throwing his Poké Ball, stating that Ash still had to sign up for the Kalos League. Everett later stopped Ash again and challenged the latter for a battle, since he promised the former that. Everett sent out his Furfrou and Ash his Pikachu. Furfrou started the battle by using Sand Attack, blinding Pikachu. It then used Giga Impact, hitting the latter badly, while he used Iron Tail which clashed with Furfrou's Take Down. Pikachu used Electro Ball and Furfrou used Cotton Guard to protect itself. The former used Quick Attack, pushing the latter away and got defeated by Pikachu's Thunderbolt.
