Lance gave the Misfits the week off and got back on track with same of his old reliable crew. Lance struck first with Geo (Rhyperior) getting a KO on Landorus. AJ fired back with Mega Gengar scoring a pair of KOs. Lance answered with Pyro (Arcanine) getting a KO on Sableye and indirectly taking down Mega Gengar with a burn. Lance’s own Mega Gengar, Juzi, added another KO to add to his advantage. Ian Mckellen (Magneton) fought back for AJ with a pair of KOs. In the end, Lance leaned on his main partner, Siegfried (Dragonite), who picked up the final 2 KOs of the battle to secure the win for Lance.

Zero responded with Druddigon a KO and Cofagrigus besting Mega Scizor thanks to a burn. Mamoswine and Druddigon exchanged KOs to keep it even. Custos then called on Hydreigon again who picked up another 2 KOs, giving it 4 for the battle. Amoonguss battled back for Zero, notching a pair of KOs, but it was too much to overcome as Demise (Honckkrow) finished it, and the battle, off.

Baal (Rotom) finally put a stop to Mega Absol and then Hermes (Noivern) scored a pair of KOs to give the advantage to Michael. Andy’s Noivern, Hellbat, took down its counterpart to even things up, but that would be the last KO that Andy’s team would score.
