Yet again Brandon found himself in the ASB Arena as a referee, and standing before him were Engineer Pikachu and Arcanite. Engineer was a veteran and Arcanite was no stranger to ASB either; it was sure to be a great, if short, match. Brandon checked with both battlers to make sure they were ready, and when they both nodded, he called, "Alright, let's go!" Engineer sent out his Venusaur, Tanka, while Arcanite responded with Sir. Auron the Lucario, a Pokemon Brandon had faced as a Riolu. "This should be good," Brandon thought as Arcanite prepared to give orders.
