Season 26 – Episode 06: The Ancient Poké Ball!
Title: The Ancient Poké Ball!
Summary: After Liko is protected by her pendant, she and Roy battle Amethio together, but his Soublades easily overpowers Nyahoja and Hogator. As Liko rushes to protect Nyahoja, Roy’s Monster Ball resonates with her pendant and unleashes a black Rayquaza that forces the Explorers to retreat before flying away. Inspired by the adventure he has had, Roy catches Hogator and gains his grandfather’s permission to travel with the Rising Volteccers to catch Rayquaza. Meanwhile, the Explorers’ leader, Gibeon, removes Amethio from his mission in favor of his teammate Spinel, leaving Amethio to pursue Rayquaza to determine its connection to the pendant.
