Satoshi and his friends have arrived in Fukiyose City! Satoshi learns that there aren't any free slots at the Gym until the afternoon, so he decides to go take a look at the morning battles to see what kind of Gym Leader Fuuro is. Much to their surprise, the outcome of these "Air Battles" is decided by the Gym Leader merely looking over one's pokemon and then running a simulation in her head to decide what the outcome would be! Dent is appalled that a Gym Leader could decide a match without actually battling and decides to challenge her himself.
