Synopsis:
Haseo has emerged from inactivity after his defeat at the hands of Tri-Edge. He encounters Tohta and learns about Phyllo, missing him.

Once Haseo is left alone, the episode recaps the events during the series between Shino and Haseo, leading into a scene in which Haseo sees a "ghost" of Shino. The episode ends with a brief glimpse of Haseo in his Xth Form from the G.U. games, with the avatar Skeith in the background. The image transitions back to the present Haseo, and Haseo looks into the distance, with renewed determination to continue his search.
