The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon VII (VS カイオーガ & グラードン VII VS Kyogre & Groudon VII) is the 1st chapter of Pokémon Adventures: Volume 20.
The director of Pokémon Association prepares himself to be the commander of Gym Leaders, sending Winona to battle. Elsewhere, Prof. Birch tries to find the trainer to give him the third Pokédex and Treecko, but ends up swept away by a tsunami.
As Ruby and Sapphire dive with Relly to the Seafloor Cavern, Wallace goes to help Roxanne and Brawly to fight Groudon. Winona admits she also wants to help Wattson and Flannery, but the director put her in charge as a commander. Winona tries to call the director, but loses signal, thinking the weather also interferes with the signal. Suddenly, Winona and Wallace see a gigantic airship of the Pokémon Association. The director contacts Winona, telling he is in this airship, for he has decided to take the entire building as an mobile office. He decides to be the commander, sending Winona to join others in battle. The orb guardian couple ask the director to find Tate and Liza. The director replies he sent them to protect those orbs from thieves, so asks the elderly couple to go into his building to be safe. Before leaving, Wallace shakes hands with Winona and they depart off.
At the airship, a man flies to the Pokémon Association HQ, looking for something and enters the airship. The director emits the signal, telling everyone in Hoenn region to find a shelter. Prof. Birch is making fieldwork, deducing the flood and drought is going and will meet up somewhere in the middle. He is displeased, since the flood makes him unable to go anywhere away from the tree he is sitting on. He apologizes to Treecko, since he was supposed to give Treecko and the third Pokédex to a new trainer, but the meeting is cancelled.
A tsunami hits Prof. Birch, causing him to fall in the water. He loses his bag, which contains the Pokédex and Poké Ball containing Treecko.
