At Cynthia's house, Ash, Iris, and Cilan are training for the Junior Cup. Dawn decides she needs a break from the training, and suggests they visit a nearby island, known of a special giant Onix. They arrive on the beach where Cilan prepares food for them. All ready, enter the huge cave inhabited by the wild Onix. The enraged Onix attack them, and they flee. Iris and Dawn hide in a wooden area, and Ash, Cilan and Piplup hide in a forest clearing, therefore the two are separated. Meloetta attempts to calm the Onix down with its songs, but fails. Meloetta then transforms into Pirouette Forme. It uses Close Combat, after which they flee. Still in search of the special Onix they are cornered by group of Onix about to attack them. Meloetta again sings a song but the Onix are persistent. Suddenly, a huge roar of an Onix is heard. A coiled-up Shiny Onix reveals itself, causing all other Onix to flee. The shiny Onix flees too, and the group find a clearing and a way out of the island. Jervis reminds them of being careful at such places. They all return back to Cynthia's villa.
