Essentia had four Hawlucha attack Professor Sycamore, who was on the sundial. Just as Y had her Pokémon rescue the professor, X had his Rute battle them. Rute evaded their attacks and let them come closer to him to use Brave Bird. Before the attack occurred, X's Pokémon attacked the Hawlucha, negating their attacks. Essentia had the Hawlucha attack once more, but was found by Y on the crystal sundial. Essentia's Hawlucha carried its trainer away from the sundial. Y, who flew with Fletchy, tried to intercept Essentia, whose Hawlucha hurt Y with Stone Edge.
