Milotic was first sent out after Cynthia's Spiritomb was defeated by Cyrus' Weavile in their battle. Milotic used Iron Tail on Weavile, slamming it into a wall in the office. Cyrus said that he would have Weavile skewer Milotic's tail, to which Cynthia had Milotic use Brine on it, knocking it out instantly. Cyrus brought out his most powerful Pokémon in his possession, Gyarados. Milotic tried to attack it, but due to its speed, it wasn't able to. Taking advantage of the hole in the wall caused by Milotic, Gyarados went outside and hid in front of the rising sun. Cynthia eventually realized that it was using Dragon Dance in front of the sun, but before she did anything, Cyrus had it use Giga Impact, knocking Milotic out.
