Now that the GS Ball has been given to Gantetsu, Satoshi can concentrate on getting the gym badge that's waiting for him at the Hiwada Town Gym. Satoshi meets the young gym leader, Tsukushi, and the two start their battle immediately. The first match is Satoshi's Hinoarashi against Tsukushi's Itomaru. Hinoarashi is unable to warm its flame enough to use its fire-type attacks, so Satoshi calls it back. Chikorita is sent next, and it's able to defeat Itomaru despite its type disadvantage. Tsukushi sends Trancell out next and surprises everyone when his pokemon takes out Satoshi's Chikorita with a Tackle attack. Satoshi sends Pikachu out, who uses its electric attack to KO the powerfull Trancell. Tsukushi's final pokemon is a Strike. The Strike quickly takes out Pikachu and forces Satoshi to take his Hinoarashi back out, but now that it's warmed up from its previous battle, the pokemon is able to use its flame attacks! Tsukushi's Strike uses Sword Dance to deflect Hinoarashi's flames, and it all looks pretty hopeless for our young hero until he comes up with a plan. While Strike uses its Sword Dance, Satoshi orders Hinoarashi to attack from above--the one place where Sword Dance can't protect Strike. One Tackle attack later and Strike is defeated, earning Satoshi the Insect Badge. As Satoshi-tachi leave for Kogane City, Chie runs up to them and hands them each the special Monster Balls that her grandfather made for them. On to the next gym!
next gym battle!!!
