Blurb

Spending time in an island Pokémon Center on their way to the Kanto region, our heroes take a moment to relax while Alexa does some work on an upcoming story. She asks them to check on her Gogoat, a well-behaved Pokémon who doesn’t require a lot of supervision—so Ash and the others aren’t paying attention when Gogoat meets a young boy named Tony, senses that the boy wants to go somewhere, and promptly sets off with Tony on its back!

Of course, as soon as our heroes discover Gogoat is missing, they rush off to find Officer Jenny and ask her for help. She’s already talking to Tony’s mom, who mentions that Tony wanted to visit the mountaintop observatory where his father works to deliver a special birthday present. Alexa thinks Gogoat might have sensed Tony’s wishes and decided to take him there on its own.

But the mountain can be dangerous, so our heroes set off to make sure Tony is safe, splitting up to explore the two paths to the observatory. Ash and Alexa quickly catch up with the wayward boy and ask him to come back to town, but Tony is determined to get to the observatory, so they decide to go with him.

They finally reach the top, and Tony’s dad is relieved to see him and very happy with his present: a drawing of his favorite constellation, Braviary. After some stargazing, our heroes and Alexa are ready to continue their journey!

Plot

Continuing on their tour through the Decolore Islands, Ash and his friends stop at one of the island’s Pokémon Center. Alexa is seen filming one of the latest equipment and Nurse Joy explains that the device functions at twice the normal speed which allows her to repair any equipment or medicine she might need for a Pokémon's treatment. While taking a break, Alexa suspects that her work on the equipment might be a bit boring for the group, but Ash and Iris shrug her concerns off, saying that they would not mind seeing something they do not get to see everyday, and Cilan adds that it would also allow for a thorough inspection of their Pokémon. Alexa decides to do some more work, and while Ash, Iris and Cilan decide to wait for their Pokémon to be checked and healed, they are asked by Alexa to keep a check on her Gogoat.

The three go outside to check on Gogoat. Ash remembers that it is a Kalos Pokémon, and wonders what moves the Mount Pokémon knows. As Pikachu and Axew hop on Gogoat's back, Ash decides to have a battle with Gogoat, but is stopped by Iris, who reminds him that he cannot battle Gogoat as Alexa is not with them. A determined Ash asks Gogoat to show him one of its moves, but it refuses and moves away. A disappointed Ash is then advised by Cilan to battle Alexa and her Gogoat as soon as her work is over, cheering him up. Later, as Ash plays with Pikachu and Axew, Cilan checks on the Mount Pokémon, who happens to be eating grass. It stumbles upon a young boy and plays with him. Seeing Gogoat alone causes the boy to think that it is a wild Pokémon. The boy puts his hands on Gogoat's horns and the Mount Pokémon senses its feelings: the boy is disappointed as he wishes to go somewhere but his mother forbids him from going. Unbeknownst to the group, Gogoat agrees to take the boy where he wishes to go and sets off.

After a while, Cilan notes that Gogoat is nowhere to be seen, and he and his friends look for it. Iris decides to tell Alexa while Ash and Cilan decide to look for clues in the city, but the two do not find a trace of Gogoat. Cilan notes that there must be a reason for a well-behaved Pokémon like Gogoat to disappear like it did and spots Officer Jenny, who is busy with another case. They tell her about their problem and learn that the woman with Officer Jenny has a similar case: her son, Tony, has gone missing. Tony's mother ask the two if they know where her son is, but they reply in the negative. Putting two and two together, Officer Jenny reveals that she just received a report that a young boy matching Tony's description was seen riding on a rare Pokémon, when Alexa and Iris arrive, with the former suspecting that the rare Pokémon might be her Gogoat. Alexa reveals that her Gogoat has the ability to sense the feelings of those who touch its horns. She adds that if the person is wishing for something, the Mount Pokémon would do its best to fulfill the wish. This prompts Tony's mother to reveal that her son might have gone to an observatory up the mountain to celebrate his father's birthday with him. She explains that Tony had made a present for his father, but when he learnt that his father would not be coming home that night, he made up his mind to visit him at the observatory instead. Officer Jenny suggests to begin searching as quickly as possible, stating that the mountain can be very dangerous. The group decides to aid in searching the two as well, and Cilan tries to convince her by explaining that since there is no certainty that the two might actually be up in the mountain, it would be better if Officer Jenny looked in the city while the group went to investigate in the mountain. Officer Jenny agrees to this, asking Tony's mother to wait at home in case her son returns while wishing good luck to the group.

On the way upwards, the group reaches a forked end. Cilan concludes that both the paths lead to the observatory, prompting the group to split up to check which path Gogoat took on. Ash decides to go with Alexa on one path while Iris and Cilan take the other path. On their way, Ash expresses concern for Tony but Alexa reassures him, stating that Gogoat will take care of itself as well as Tony. She adds that she and Gogoat have gone together to a number of places, including dangerous ones, but nothing happened to either of them, reflecting her faith in her Pokémon. Ash then asks Alexa how she met Gogoat in the first place. Alexa then reveals that she was in the mountains working on a story by herself, when unbeknownst to her, a Ducklett suddenly appeared and searched her bag for food. When Alexa noticed, the Ducklett accidentally dropped her bag down the cliff. Alexa, determined to get her camera back, went down and found her bag, relieved that the camera had not broken. While she was figuring out a way to go back up, she met a wild Gogoat. Gogoat put its head on Alexa's body and she put her hands on Gogoat's horn; this caused the Mount Pokémon to sense her feelings and it took her back to the top. Alexa then proposed Gogoat to join her, to which it happily agreed. Together, the two traveled through various places, always comforting each other. Ash exclaims that the two of them are meant to be together and Alexa exclaims the same for Ash and Pikachu as well, causing them to feel delighted.

On their way to the observatory, Tony and Gogoat decide to stop by a lake and seeing the sun shining brightly, Gogoat uses Synthesis to regain its energy. Meanwhile, Iris is looking for Gogoat and Tony from a tree branch, but to no luck, prompting Cilan to deduce that Ash and Alexa must taken the correct path after all. Continuing to the observatory, Ash and Alexa finally spot Tony and Gogoat. When they reach the two, Tony refuses to return to her mother and asks Gogoat to continue to the observatory, but Gogoat declines and sits down. Alexa informs Tony that Gogoat is her Pokémon and Tony apologizes to her for taking Gogoat without her permission. Alexa does not mind that and reveals that it was Gogoat who made the decision to take him to the observatory after it sensed his feelings. Tony thanks Gogoat for its help and decides to continue on the observatory on his own. Ash stops him from going, informing him of the dangers and the wild Pokémon that he may encounter on his way and reasons with him to return to his home and wait for his father to finish work. Tony blatantly refuses, saying that he had promised his father that he would give him a present on his birthday. Alexa then suggests that all of them travel to the observatory, noting that it might be safe for Tony this way, and all of them set off. On their way, they are interrupted by a group of Foongus. Ash tries to reason with them and let the four of them past. But the Foongus refuse and attack Ash with Poison Powder, which he avoids in the nick of time. Tony is disappointed, but Alexa cheers him up and all of them ride on Gogoat's back to reach the mountain top. The group then reaches a bridge, but noticing its terrible condition, decide that it is not safe to walk across. Ash suggests to swim but Alexa refuses, noting that the current is too strong for a swim. Alexa has an idea and asks for Pikachu and Gogoat's help in knocking down a tree on the other side of the river to form a bridge. Alexa asks Gogoat to use Vine Whip and take Pikachu to the other side. This prompts Ash to ask if Gogoat is a Grass-type Pokémon, and Alexa replies in the positive. Pikachu uses Iron Tail to cut through the tree trunk and Gogoat uses Vine Whip to bring it down and form a bridge.

The group successfully reaches the other side of the river and by evening, they reach the observatory where they are greeted by Iris and Cilan. Tony's father comes running and hugs his son, and later scolds him for running off like he did. Tony apologizes and gives his father a present: a drawing of his father's favorite constellation, Braviary. Tony's father gladly accepts the present and thanks Ash for helping out his son. Iris and Cilan state that they had taken long and that the two had been worried. Ash replies that it was nothing, but Iris refuses to believe and demands to know what went wrong, to which Tony replies that it is a secret between Ash and him. Alexa then thanks Gogoat for its help.

As night sets in, Tony's family along with Ash, Iris, Cilan and Alexa are out in the open. Tony points at the Braviary constellation and everyone takes note of its beauty. And, with Tony safe with his family, the group admires the night sky and then continues their journey.
