Based on a Colza's sighting, Liko and Roy are searching Oliva's Forest, which seems to have a connection to the Black Rayquaza.

▲ And... old man Landau is quite active...!?

The Rising Volt Tacklers work on the forest. Something strange happens to Oliva who was watching Liko and the others!! Furthermore, Liko's pendant began to shine again!?

▲ This ancient monster ball is……!?


▲ Also, Friede and Cap look very serious. Who are they talking to......?
