Now that Cameron’s Riolu has evolved into Lucario in the midst of his Unova League battle with Ash and Snivy, the heat is really turning up! After evolving, Lucario’s powerful moves are even stronger than Riolu’s were, and Snivy is defeated.
Ash then calls upon Pikachu, who hasn’t fully recovered from its earlier battles. Pikachu’s power and tenacity are amazing as always, the result of the strong bond between Trainer and Pokémon, and it battles Lucario almost to a standstill. But Lucario manages one final Aura Sphere to seal Pikachu’s defeat. Ash is out of the Unova League, and Cameron moves on to the semi-finals...
...where he’s up against Virgil and Team Eevee, and Flareon’s type advantage finally overcomes the powerful Lucario! Virgil’s Eevee proves to be a fierce competitor as well, knocking out his final opponent’s Druddigon to win the Unova League!
After our heroes bid a fond farewell to their friends and rivals, we leave Ash contemplating all the wonderful adventures yet to come—and feeling more determined than ever to make his dream of becoming a Pokémon Master come true!
