Chapter guide

Hazel has baked a cake for Almond, her Pokémon Trainer crush. Unbeknownst to Almond, Hazel has laced the cake with a love potion from the scientist Grandpa. The potion is unstable, however, and the cake and house explode. Pikachu watches these events, and flees the scene after the explosion.

Furious, Hazel returns to Grandpa's laboratory. In exchange for an improved love potion, she agrees to catch Pokémon for his research (and so he may impress girls). She readily agrees, and sets off in a new outfit, made for her by Grandpa.

Hazel meets Pikachu, but is unsuccessful in catching him. She finds Almond, who attempts to describe the Pokémon she has just discovered with a poor-quality drawing. Displeased by the picture, Pikachu Thunder Shocks both of them. Hazel is somehow left unscathed.

Hazel befriends Pikachu and Grandpa, watching from a crystal ball, reveals that the suit is resistant to electricity.
