With Paul winning the Coal Badge, it is now Ash’s turn to face Roark. Ash then goes to the nearest Pokémon Center to heal his Pokémon. Then seeing Paul, Ash and him argue, then a kid approaches Paul and thanks him for giving him the Azumarill that Paul used in the battle. The trio are then in the Gym where Ash faces Roark. Ash uses Aipom, Turtwig, and Pikachu. But due to Roark’s strong Pokémon, Ash ends up losing the battle.
