The group entered the laboratory facilities that Harry had investigated, knowing Dr. Ann Laurent, the doctor who was mentioned by Sebastian, experimented with Mewtwo, who was arrested again after fleeing 20 years earlier, apparently hiring Harry helped them.

They were attacked by several Greninja who drove them out of the building but were repelled by Psyduck. They escaped from the terrain of Torterra, but Pikachu was seriously injured. The team communicating with Bulbasur brought Pikachu an open space in the forest where they were greeted by Mewtwo, who healed Pikachu but was captured by Roger.

Pikachu left Tim while the others returned to Ryme City to warn Howard. Pikachu crosses the area where Harry hit his car and finds evidence that Mewtwo is not attacking but Greninja. Tim reaches Howard, but understands too late, Howard intends to transfer his awareness to Mewtwo and use R so that Pokemon can become obedient enough for him to integrate them with their owners, allowing humans to evolve in their Pokemon.

The temporary team found that Roger was actually Ms. Norman, who is truly a Ditto, the original Roger has been hidden. The team conquered Ditto with R while Pikachu parried Mewtwo long enough for the team to free Mewtwo from Howard’s control.

Mewtwo returns everyone to normal conditions when Howard is arrested. Roger is impressed with Lucy and hires him as a full-time reporter. Mewtwo reveals that Harry is actually fused with Pikachu to heal himself.

After Mewtwo unites them through Tim’s help, Harry who fully recovers offers Tim the chance to go home, but Tim decides to stay to learn how to be a detective and spend time with Harry and Pikachu.
