Inside the rampaging TR battle airship, Red decides to stay behind on his own to deal with the failing aircraft. The black hole created by Deoxys slowly swallows up Mewtwo and Yellow, despite their protest. However, before she gets completely engulfed, Yellow does a last minute struggle, and tells Red to wait as she swings her fishing rod out. The fishing line catches Red by his left little finger, and Red, who is taken by surprise, sees that the other end is coiled around Yellow's own same finger.

Having succeeded in buying herself some time, Yellow clutches tight onto her fishing rod to keep herself from being swallowed into the black hole. Inside the Pokéball attached to the end of fishing line which is coiled around Red's little finger, Chuchu spots Pika in its Pokéball on Red's belt, and the two Pikachus gasp in surprise upon seeing each other.

Red wants to know what Yellow is doing, and the girl explains that she has something important to tell Red. It turns out that before she fell victim to her sleep attack, she managed to fully comprehend what Deoxys was trying to say, and she finally understands that the reason why this Deoxys named Individual 2 claims to be Red is because Red's blood flows in its body.

Red is stunned speechless momentarily at the statement, and wonders how is it possible. Yellow explains that in order to obtain greater battling power to further his evil deeds, Giovanni has collected various cell samples and energy sources over the years. Amongst them, it contains Red's blood sample. Five years ago, in Red's battle with Giovanni at the Viridian Gym, both trainers were wounded. At the end of the battle, Giovanni secretly took some of the fallen cement splashed with Red's blood away, and kept it as a sample.

Afterwards, when Deoxys Individual 2 broke free from Team Rocket during its ethereal stage not long ago, it caused havoc at the storage room, and incidentally absorbed Red's blood sample which was kept there. Being a mutated space virus, Deoxys doesn't have a home or a family. Its innate nature thus regards Red as its own roots, and yearns to find and meet him. Unfortunately, at that time, the only means of communication Deoxys knows of is to attack and battle, which explains its aggressiveness towards Red upon their first encounter. As for the special feeling Red experiences whenever Deoxys appears, it is perhaps a calling from Red's own blood which is flowing inside the body of Deoxys.

Having explained Deoxys's message to Red, Yellow quickly finds herself getting another sleep attack. As she loosens her grip on the fishing rod, the fishing line around her little finger slowly uncoils. She is grateful, however, that she has delivered the message fully, and that Silver is also being warped to a safe place, which means her task there is complete. With that, the young trainer falls asleep and slips into the black hole, leaving just her straw hat, the fishing line, as well as Chuchu's Pokéball behind.

Red remains wordless for a moment as he thinks over Yellow's words, then turns to Deoxys, and says he is glad that he finally understands what it means. He recalls what Yellow said about battling being Deoxys's only means of communication, and muses how shaken his own body was in reaction to Deoxys's calling. Deoxys stares with Red with a baffled face, and Red quickly apologizes for saying funny things.

The boy then looks over to the pilot seat, and climbs up to attempt steering the aircraft into control. He tells Deoxys that he is honoured, however, to be the one person whom such a strong and diversely skilled being seeks. Red states that although Deoxys has been captured by Giovanni and is technically the man's Pokémon, it is now free and can choose to go back to the wild. However, it can also choose to stay behind and fight alongside with him, let him show it what friendship is, and what it means to be companions.

With that, Red sends out Poli, Lax, Gyara, Aero, Charizard, Pika, as well as Chuchu, and gets ready to collaborate once again with his trusted companions. With his hands on the steering handle, he admits that he has never controlled any vehicle aside from a bike, but he will do his best. While he stays in charge of the pilot position and makes sure the aircraft doesn't crash, everyone else should try to locate the 10 remaining Forretresses and faint them.

The Pokémon are about to take off when Red notices a message on the monitor screen telling him to wait, and that it will help him locate the Forretresses. Red realizes that it is Deoxys talking to him, and tells the others to follow its directions. Closing his eyes, Deoxys swiftly detects the whereabouts of the Forretresses with its psychic powers, and displays his thoughts as letters on the monitor screen.

Near the right engine rotor, Poli soon finds the first Forretress there and faints it with a hydropump. On the second floor of the central cabin, Gyara knocks out the second one, while Pika and Chuchu electrify the third one with their combined thunderbolt in the store room in the basement. As long as they manage to keep working at this pace, Red believes that there might just be a chance that he will succeed…
