Chapter plot

On Route 23, Gold and Crystal ride Exbo and Megaree. Gold gets hungry and takes out a sweet potato. He warns Crystal not to eat too much, else she'll get fat, though Crystal takes offence. Crystal warns him the potato is not cooked, so Exbo torches the potato. Gold admits the fire was too strong, but replies she shouldn't take offense. Crystal is insulted and scolds Gold, for she could've been burned. They arrive to the Indigo Pleateu, but read the viewers and participants need to pay the entry fee. Gold unfolds his vehicle, calls Exbo back and bids Crystal farewell.

He speeds up, though the entry hall. Crystal tries to catch him, but is stopped by the guard, who demands she should pay for him and herself. Suddenly, three Yanma fly and have taken a mother's baby. The guard sees that one of the participants accidentally sent Yanma, who have flown off. Gold appears, wanting to resolve the situation. He pushes the Poké Ball away. The guard is displeased, as there is a baby among the Yanma, but Gold orders him to watch. The ball bounces on each and every side of the wall, confusing Yanma, who drop the baby. However, Gold's Sudobo catches the baby and gives it to the parents.

However, Crystal pulls Gold's ear away, notifying they must not be seen. Prof. Oak also notifies of this, for they must find the Masked Man and head to the exhibition field. The field itself splits into two pieces, as a train passes through. This train connects the Kanto and Johto regions, from it the Gym Leaders of both regions emerge out.
