Ash and the others stop so that Dawn can introduce everyone to Buizel. However Buizel could care less. Ash decides to please Buizel by battling it with Turtwig, with the result of Turtwig being badly injured and taken to the Pokémon Center. There they meet an unexpected visitor in a member of the Sinnoh Elite 4: Lucian. Lucian tells them about the Champion League, a league you can enter after you beat regional leagues. Following the conversation, Buizel wants to battle with Lucian, and he accepts Buizel’s offer. Lucian’s choice of pokémon is his Bronzong. However, Bronzong quickly defeats Buizel, damaging its fighting attitude, and worrying Dawn. Meanwhile Team Rocket plans to steal Bronzong and Buizel.
