Ash and friends get lost on their way to Ash’s first Battle Frontier battle, but this affords them the rare chance of witnessing a wild Articuno in flight. After a stop in the nearest Pokémon Center for a good night’s sleep and better directions, they finally meet the Frontier Brain whom Ash will have to defeat to earn his first Frontier Symbol. Before the battle begins, the Brain offers Ash the rare opportunity to choose which Pokémon he will battle against.
