The narrator starts explaining about the Pokémon forest. Pikachu and his friends looks at the sky. Suddenly, the moon begins to glow, and Meloetta appears. Meloetta lands on the ground, and plants the Melody Tree. Then, it sings the Relic Song which makes the tree grow and sprout Melody Berries. Meowth becomes excited and starts scratching Crustle, which makes it use Sandstorm. The Sandstorm breaks the tree, and the Melody Berries blast off. Meloetta manages to catch one of the berries as the other four scatter. Pikachu and friends then start searching for the Melody Berries while Meowth searches for them as well, trying to impress Meloetta. Pikachu and friends eventually manage to gather all Melody Berries and give them to Meloetta, making Meloetta become happy and sing in the end.
- This was the first Pikachu short released alongside a movie since Gotta Dance.
- This short is the only time when Meloetta's original singing voice was kept in the English dub.
- All of the other Pokémon seen in the short beside Ash's Unova Pokémon, Iris's Pokémon, and Cilan's Pokémon are ones Ash and/or his friends previously owned.
- It is the first Pikachu short to be dubbed into English and released since Pikachu's Island Adventure.
- This marks the first time a Pachirisu, other than the one Dawn owns, appears in the anime.
- During the events of the short, likenesses of Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Manaphy, and Shaymin appear in the background. Their locations are revealed during the dance number at the end.
