With Nina in his bed, Pike is scared for what may happen if he tries to resist her. He calls Odd to try to get to the Null Void, and Odd agrees to take him after he tells him why. When he gets to the Null Void, he tells Buttercup that to protect their relationship, they must go public. When they finally do, all the staff congratulate them and tell them that they should have come forth in the first place. Buttercup is then given a transfer notice to the Providence Academy so that she may be closer to Pike.
Pike later meets Ash Ketchum, who introduces him to Pokémon. Pike receives his first Pokémon (Squirtle, Eevee, and Pikachu), and as a peace offering, he gets Nina a Vulpix.
Later it is asserted that Aelita has attempted suicide.
- Ash and Pikachu are introduced.
- Nina and Pike reconcile.
