Assaulted by Pelipper II (VSペリッパー II VS Pelipper II) is the 1st chapter of Pokémon Adventures: Volume 18.
Team Aqua managed to cool down the volcano. While Sapphire tries to get the enemy, Flannery tries to revive the volcano. Surprisingly, she receives unexpected help from the other enemy.
Long time ago, the two ancient Pokémon, Kyogre and Groudon, fought tirelessly. As Kyogre expanded the sea, Groudon expanded the land and the world was engulfed in destruction. After the battle, Kyogre and Groudon were sealed deep below the earth, or so it seemed. At Lavaridge Town, a strange Pokémon appears, watching the townsfolk being angry as the volcano's activity has been stopped. Team Aqua, however, is fond they extinguished the volcano. Amber sends Carvanha and Team Aqua disappears in a puff of smoke. Sapphire goes after them, but she and Flannery fall from Tropius as a beam is launched away.
Flannery falls down, but notices Sapphire is gone. Flannery hears her being underground. Sapphire remembers Team Aqua used Secret Power when she chased them through Petalburg Forest, and did so now. Despite their run-away, Sapphire wants to catch all of them, but is attacked. Flannery is frustrated and sends Magcargo to use Flamethrower, but fails. Tabitha appears, claiming she does not use enough heat to revive the volcano. Flannery yells if he is one of the Aqua recruits. Tabitha replies he is on her side, wanting to see the volcano active, but admits it was killed this time.
Sapphire notices the volcano is starting to revitalize and tells Flannery to keep this up. Tabitha gives Flannery a piece of coal and gives it to his Torkoal. Flannery has Magcargo boost Torkoal for even more heat. They keep this up and manage to destroy the machine and blast out the volcano.
