The Gym Leader is Homika of the super punk band "The Dogas," and the gym is a performance venue turned battlefield! Despite being surrounded by an audience and being given an odd vibe, Satoshi and Pikachu are able to fire everyone up with Pikachu's 100,000 Volt attack! Additionally, Homika, who's full of confidence, decides to only put up three of her pokemon to battle Satoshi's six! Homika sends out a Dogas she got in the Kanto region and is able to poison Satoshi's Kenhorou despite its speed! What will Satoshi do!?
