BioAs part of an established custom at Valerie's cloth collection show debuts, Valerie picks one person to battle with. She chose Sawyer (Scottie) and told him if he defeated her, she would give him a Gym badge. Sawyer's Bagon was sent out to battle against Valerie's Spritzee. Unfortunately for Sawyer (Scottie), he was unable to defeat her but was grateful for the experience and vowed to return to defeat her.
After Valerie's Sylveon was defeated, Valerie's Spritzee was matched up against Ash's Fletchinder. The match was dominated by Valerie's Spritzee Trick Room. Ash kept instructing Fletchinder to use Flame Charge despite being under Trick Room's effects which actually has the opposite effect and lowers its speed. Ash's Fletchinder kept enduring attacks until the effects of Trick Room had warn off and he hoped that he could settle the match in one go but unfortunately the strategy didn't pay off as Valerie's Spritzee endured the Giga Impact and Steel Wing and knocked out Fletchinder with a Moon Blast.
In the final match up, Ash's Hawlucha was sent out to face a weakened Spritzee. Once again Trick Room dominated the match-up but Ash's Hawlucha had learned a new move, X-Scissor which was able to shatter Trick Room and its effects on the playing field. Valerie was surprised and it wasn't much later that Ash's Hawlucha took over the match and knocked out Valerie's Spritzee with a powerful High Jump Kick.
