At the Pokémon Center, she runs into Harley again. At first she doesn’t want to believe him but after the info he tells her is true she believes him. He tells her that she can register for the contest with her Hoenn Pass by 11:00 the next morning, but Max doesn’t believe him. She goes to train not realizing that he is lying and that Team Rocket is also entering the Contest and plans to steal all the Coordinator’s Pokémon!
