At last, the time has come; Ash is finally going to battle Volkner, Leader of the Sunyshore Gym. If he wins this, then the Beacon Badge is his and it’ll be on to the Sinnoh League. The battle gets underway, but just as they’re getting warmed up, a city-wide power-outage occurs, putting their match on hold. The group heads over to the Sunyshore Tower, the city’s power source, in order to see what the problem is, and they see it right away… or rather, they don’t see it: the tower has completely disappeared! Will Ash and friends, as well as Volkner and Flint, be able to trace down the lost tower and bring it back, or will Sunyshore City remain in a state of electrical darkness until it receives another source of power?
