Brutus (Venusaur) drew Alexander a little closer with a KO on Sableye, but Akujiki struck again, taking Brutus down before succumbing to the recoil of its Life Orb.

Gastrodon would then go down due to a burn, but Howler called on Jolteon to keep the pressure going. Jolteon scored a pair of KOs before Morgane (Alakazam) could take it down.
