Egglocke help

I’m currently doing an egglocke, and I’m at the abyssal base where you fight Audrey the second time, and for whatever reason seed flare isn’t working on the corrupted water, preventing me from progressing. I believe this is because I don’t have a pokemon following me, but I don’t know how to fix that. Help?

EDIT: I got it to work by refreshing the map lol
