"Zone Fighter Annihilated"

Shipdraw was sent by the Garogas as a distraction to make Zone Fighter grow giant. They battled and Shipdraw was left injured on the ground.

Right when Zone was about to leave, Shadorah's energy caused him to collapse. This bought the two monsters some time to escape and recover.
