With Pops' help, Wally managed to capture Cacturne on their way to Pacifidlog Town. Once the two had to sail away from the town, they found a bag containing a Treecko and a Pokédex. Thus, Wally had his Cacturne use Needle Arm, which binded the bag to a rock. Wally was glad his Cacturne did well, knowing it would never hurt a Pokémon. Norman appeared and decided to grant Wally's wish, to train him. Wally looked at his Pokémon, who were also for the special training. Inside the Sky Pillar, Wally's Cacturne battled some wild Banette.
