It was time for Round 2.

The crowd was still recovering from the previous round of ferocious cake baking. The two contestants left, Maggie and Macy, stood side-by-side facing the crowd. The cheers began to die down and Olivia, the announcer, came back over the intercom:

"After a wonderful display from all of our contestants during the first round, we now move on to the second round," announced Olivia followed by another cheer from the audience. "This next round consists of a 2 versus 2 Pokemon Battle!"

The contestants turned to each other and exchange some words of luck. Our heroes sat up in their seats, anxiously awaiting the battle.

"Let's hope Macy can pull this off.." Alex said with his voice trailing off.

"No doubt she can." Elijah replied.

The contestants stepped to either side of the battlefield that had appeared in the center of the stage.

Olivia came back on to the intercom, "Not only will the outcome of the battle effect the winner, but the show the contestant puts on during the battle. Points will be awarded for creativity, teamwork, and flashiness of the battling. The winner of this round will win the entire contest!"

The contestants nodded and sent out their two Pokemon each. Maggie decided to go with Staravia and Druddigon. Macy decided to use Primarina and Glaceon.

Our heroes were slightly disappointed. They wanted to see the other Pokemon Macy had on her team. She only ever used Glaceon and Primarina in her contests. They honestly weren't quite sure which other ones she had.

"Begin!" roared Olivia.

"Staravia use Brave Bird on Glaceon and Druddigon use Dragon Claw on Primarina!" Maggie called out.

Elijah was confused. "Why would she order a Dragon-Type move on a Fairy-Type Pokemon?" He pondered.

Macy stood grinning. She was almost waiting for the oncoming attacks to grow closer. Yes... yes she was.

"Glaceon, Primarina, jump!" Macy called out.

The two Pokemon jumped, avoiding the oncoming attacks. The force from Maggie's attacks caused a cloud of dust to form in the air when they made contact with the ground.

Through the dust emerged Druddigon and Staravia with another onslaught of attacks that happened to make contact with Macy's Pokemon this time around. Both Glaceon and Primarina were thrown out of the air and slammed on to the ground.

Elijah's face was filled with shock. "So that's what Maggie's plan was for using attacks that don't effect the opposing Pokemon... Bold but effective... I guess." He thought.

While Primairina and Glaceon were stuck lying on the ground after the powerful span of attacks, Druddigon and Staravia followed up with Chip Away and Take Down respectively.

All this while, Macy hadn't called out a single attack. Alex thought this was strange. He watched as she simply stood there, emotionless. "Macy is studying her opponent," Alex mentioned. "She's looking at her opponents battle style and seeing what she's made of. She'll probably attack sometime soon seeing as Maggie doesn't have any variation in her attacking."

Elijah and Ava nodded. Ava hadn't been paying much attention to the battle to be quite honest. She sat holding her newly possessed Egg that she was tasked to take care of and raise whenever it hatched. She had virtually no idea what was inside, but would love it and take of it no matter what it was. She drew her eyes back on to the battle.

Druddigon and Staravia stood in place awaiting an attack from Macy's Pokemon.

"You gonna do something," Maggie asked tauntingly. "Or do I have to beat you quickly to get out of this boring battle."

Macy grinned. "If that's what you want." Macy lifted her arm revealing a white bracelet with a blue crystal positioned in the center of it.

"A Mega-Stone?" Elijah asked.

"No it can't be," Ava replied. "Neither Primarina and Glaceon Mega Evolve. And even if they somehow did, they aren't wearing a stone."

"Then what is it?" Alex asked.

Macy tapped the Blue Crystal and it began to glow. she then began doing a series of weird-looking positions that Primarina seemed to be imitating. "Oceanic Operetta!" she called out.

The same blue glow they experienced from the previous Showcase was emitted once again. The room filled with light and dimmed back down within seconds. When the light cleared, both Druddigon and Staravia were on the ground unable to battle.

"What... Incredible... Power..." Our heroes said in sync. They were flabbergasted.

The crowd erupted in cheer once again and our heroes joined in. Maggie returned her feinted Pokemon and walked out of the arena. Macy thanked her Pokemon for their great battle and returned them as well.

She turned to the judge who came to award her with a trophy. She quickly took it and whispered something into his ear and he nodded. He left and came back with a microphone in which he gave to Macy to speak.

"Hello Ladies and Gentlemen. I firstly wanted to thank you all for coming out today to watch the Showcase. It means a lot to me. I wanted to secondly thank my fans who have supported me during my career of Showcase. Kalos Queen is a big title and one that I wear with pride, but today I am here to inform you that I will no longer be wearing that title." Macy announced.

The crowd dropped their mouths. Were they hearing things correctly?

"Yes I know this probably comes at a surprise, but there are so many reasons why I have to give the title away and move on from Showcases. I want to do so much more in life and I just can't do any of it when I'm stuck preparing and performing in Showcases all the time. I want to travel the region and the world as a whole. I want to participate in battles and become the best trainer I can be. I want to meet friends and battle amongst rivals like any trainer does." She cleared her throat trying to hold back tears.

"So yeah. This is my announcement saying that I am officially retiring from Pokemon Showcases. I may come back to do one here and there, but now, I want to focus on preparing for the upcoming Kalos League. I want to participate in it and show the world that my Pokemon and I are also amazing battlers. I wanted to thank you all one last time for your love and support. It's been a great ride."

And with that she handed the microphone back to the judge, whose mouth was wide open like the rest, and walked off the stage, for the last time.

Our heroes looked at each other immensely surprised.

Elijah stared at the silhouette of once Kalos Queen walking away from them and to her backstage room. Not only was he dumbfounded from the recent announcement but he also became worried. He came to Kalos with a feeling of confidence that he would win the Kalos League. But now, he had to worry about another contestant with incredible strength, Macy and that strange Blue Flash called Oceanic Operetta.
