Previously on Astral Pet Store Chapter 95: Recap
Chapter 95 begins with the much-awaited 52nd Global Elite League held at the Longjiang base City Trials. With all the excitement and cheers in the atmosphere, the contestants are welcomed.
The rules of the League are then announced; primaries get divided into 30 arenas at the same time due to a large number of contestants. Then the energy shield of the arena and the forcefield are activated.
The competition begins, and the first topic is the Swarm Knockout. The rules are simple; survive the Swarm of phantom butterflies whose sting is enough to paralyze any individual. The time limit is 6 hours.
All the contestants are paranoid and many seem to already give up as Swarm butterflies are of level 5. While on the other hand, the Vice President of Jianlan college, Zhou Yunchan, stays with Ye Hao to support him and show him how much he admires Ye Hao. He also offers Ye Hao if he wants to join his school as a gold mentor but Ye Hao is concentrating on nothing but the game.
Another rule gets added to the first match, and that is those who hurt the grass flower will also be disqualified from the match. The game is surely exciting to watch, but there are visible contestants showing amazing skills and techniques in order to avoid the Swarm of butterflies.
As the Swarm of butterflies reproduces quickly and is difficult to fight against, even seventh-grade contestants find it difficult to stay put together for 6 continuous hours.
