Now that she knows that their true enemy is in the Seafloor Cavern, controlling Kyogre and Groudon, Sapphire immediately takes off on her Tropius and sends out her Wailord, intending to go there. Winona chases her and makes her see sense: after all, they don't know where the Seafloor Cavern is, and have no way of reaching the bottom of the sea.
Ruby wakes up, alone, and remembers what happened with his Feebas. He gets up to go look for her and sees the PokéFan Club President and Tuga coughing violently. Catching sight of Wallace, Captain Stern, Maryann, and Tyler entering, Ruby quickly hides, internally berating himself for always running away and hiding.
Ruby watches as Wallace contacts Winona via videophone. She tells Wallace that Kyogre and Groudon have awakened, and Wallace, alarmed, immediately volunteers to join one of the teams fighting them. Winona tells him that they are being controlled from the Seafloor Cavern.
Ruby doesn't seem to be paying full attention, instead watching Sapphire, who is visible in the corner of the screen. He notices she has a new Pokémon, and after wracking his brain, Ruby recognizes him as a Relicanth, the Pokémon Mr. Briney told him is capable of bringing people to the bottom of the sea.
