The Last Battle VIII (最終決戦VIII The Last Battle VIII) is the 8th chapter of Pokémon Adventures: Volume 14.
Green tries to combat Ho-Oh, her worst nightmare from the childhood. Even worse, Karen and Will have found Silver and defeated him. Green is now even more determined to defeat this duo, sending three Legendary Pokémon she battled with in the past.
Green remembers well how Ho-Oh carried her to the Masked Man, who put the mask on her face. The Masked Man expected a lot of achievements from her and Silver, who also wore the mask. Green faints, making Will pleased, for that experience caused Green to develop a fear for all birds. Will thinks Green should've been captured even younger, for she wouldn't have remember a thing and laughs at her. Green stands up, glad she teleported Silver away so he doesn't suffer as she does. Will consider her foolish, pointing at a nearby tree on which Silver is bounded.
Green screams his name and Silver wakes up. Silver tells her he has grown stronger as just about he was to be teleported away, his Sneasel snatched a scroll from Abra, as Sneasel used Thief. Green is crushed, as Silver copied her map and came here. Silver tells he always wanted to protect her and faints. Green remembers she and Silver escaped from the Masked Man, then they took off the masks and gave each other black gloves. Green turns around, furious at Will and Karen. Ho-Oh descends down.
However, Green is not terrified anymore. She thanks Karena and Will, for they helped her clearing this psychological barrier, so she is no longer afraid of birds. Green raises three Poké Balls, so Ho-Oh goes to attack her. However, Green sends Moltres, Zapdos and Articuno. Green rides Moltres, while Will rides Lugia and Karen Ho-Oh. However, Silver goes on Lugia, trying to stop Will.
In the meantime, the shrine of Ilex Forest begins to shine.
