Secrets From Out of the Fog! (Japanese: Nの秘密…霧の彼方に！ N's Secret... To The Other Side of the Mist!) is the 118th episode of the Best Wishes series, and the 775th episode of the Pokémon anime. It first aired in Japan on March 21, 2013 and in the United States on June 22, 2013.
N has been injured in a battle with Team Plasma, and as our stunned heroes watch, two mysterious women appear and take him to a pool in the forest, where he is fully healed. Ash, Iris, and Cilan soon learn that N and the two women, Concordia and Anthea, have been living in a secret hideaway, where they take care of Pokémon that have been mistreated by people.
N describes how, as a young boy, he lived in a mansion with Anthea and Concordia—and with Ghetsis, the leader of Team Plasma, who never allowed him to go outside. Ghetsis explained to N that because of his ability to hear the inner voices of Pokémon, he was destined to become the leader of Team Plasma and save the world’s Pokémon from selfish people.
But, N says, Ghetsis was lying. He only wanted to use N in a ceremony to summon the Legendary Pokémon Reshiram—but when Reshiram showed up, it was very angry at the deceit and unleashed its fury on Team Plasma! In the aftermath, Anthea and Concordia rescued N and made their way to the hidden house where they live now.
Now, N and his companions still agree that people are not to be trusted to protect the well-being of Pokémon, and they believe Pokémon need to be kept away from people. However, our heroes are determined to prove them wrong, and Concordia and Anthea are soon amazed to see the previously mistreated Pokémon warm up to the young Trainers!
Soon, Team Plasma’s goons manage to track N to the secret house. Ash and friends battle them to allow N and his companions to get the injured Pokémon to safety, and Team Plasma is held at bay once again. Still, N, Anthea, and Concordia remain convinced that people and Pokémon cannot coexist, and so they bid farewell to our heroes and vanish into the fog. Ash and friends wonder if they will ever see N again...

The episodes begins with Team Rocket walking in the forest through fog, the fog begins to disappear and they decided head another way. However, they discovered that they were in a ruined forest filled with swamps. The three Plasma grunts (one of which is Barret), are still searching for N in the forest.
Meanwhile, in the beautiful forest, Ash and his group are watching N sleeping in the pool with two mysterious girls. A Gothitelle and Gardevoir are with them. Ash is concerned and tries to see what is happening to N but Gardevoir tells him to stay out. They then see N getting healed in pool. N wakes up and finds the two girls named Anthea and Concordia and thanks them. The group are confused to see that they know each other. Anthea and Concordia tells them to leave this place and Gothhtielle threatens them to kick them out using Psychic. But N tells them to let Ash and friends stay here for while, saying that they created a strong bond with Pokémon. Anthea and Concordia are pleased about their Pokémon loving them. The group realize that the two had a same inner voice as N does. N tells them that Anthea and Concordia are his companions. N tells them that their hideout is in a forest where injured Pokémon live.
N takes them to a house and tells them that it's his hideout and where he lives for the time being. Ash scans the Gardevoir, but it's sensing that Ash scanning it and gives him a sharp look. The group meets a Pidove who's friendly to N and Iris tries to touch it, but Pidove smacks her and runs off. N tells them that all of Pokémon got injured by people and are emotionally scarred with zero trust in humans. N shows them the inside of a room where Anthea, Concordia, and an Audino are treating injured Pokémon. Ash and his friends wanted to know why N wants to rescue and protect all of Pokémon under the control of Team Plasma.
N explains that in his past he once lived in a large mansion. He lived all alone and always stayed inside until Anthea and Concordia came in with some Pokemon and played with him. He also tells the group that he couldn't stand the sight of battling and injuries Pokémon got from them. Ghetsis had told him that Team Plasma's dream was to free Pokémon from abusive people. He used N to call the legendary Pokémon Reshiram to Team Plasma's hideout but it got angry and destroyed the hideout. N was found alone and injured by Anthea and Concordia. Anthea and Concordia also explains about how Ghetsis's purpose was a lie and has different plans but were unable to learn the truth yet. Anthea and Concordia realize Ghetsis was partially telling the truth and decided to protect Pokémon and not be allowed to be lived with humans. Ash and friends tried to convince them that not all humans are bad but got told they had to leave the next day.
At Team Plasma's hideout, Aldith explains to Ghetsis that N had already got away. Ghetsis angrily orders the grunts to keep looking. Colress asked why Ghetsis was so interested in N but Ghetsis told him it was none of his business.
Back at N's hideout, Ash and friends are upset that N's companions won't believe them and they decide to try again. Meanwhile, some of the hurt Pokémon come out of hiding. Axew, Pikachu, and Oshawott invite them to play. Ash and friends play with the Pokémon as Anthea and Concordia watch from a window. Soon after, Team Plasma find the hideout and continue to pursue N. Anthea and Concordia blames Ash and his friends for revealing their hidden forest but Ash says that he would never tell their location in a million years. Ash and friends protect N, Anthea, and Corcordia as the threesome flee into the fog. N calls out to Ash and friends who find them. Anthea and Corcordia leave with N to find a new place to take refuge as Ash and friends were left behind in the fog. After the fog clears, Ash and friends are surprised to see the forest gone too. They soon turn to continue their journey.
