While heading to Blackthorn City, Ash and co. come across a valley which is home to many Magcargo. A giant Magcargo is blocking the path but when Ash and co. try to move it they end up getting burned. They soon meet a trainer named Egan who's just as passionate about Fire Pokémon as Misty is about Water Pokémon. Egan wants to capture the Magcargo and uses his Flareon to do so. Will he succeed, and will Ash no longer be the only one Misty gets in fights with?
