The story jumps to ten years, where Sonic is living with the Wachowski family near the town of Green Hills, Montana. He was unaware that Tom and Maddie are planning to shift from there to San Francisco. Being upset about his loneliness, Sonic starts running at a high speed on the baseball ground creating an electromagnetic pulse.

These pulses got detected by the United States Department of Defense, which sends Dr Robotnik to find the cause of the changes. Frightened from the incident, Sonic drops the bag of rings and opens the portal to San Francisco rather than the mushroom planet.
