Bonnie is always looking for someone to take care of her big brother—until suddenly, someone agrees to do so! Lilia is looking for a partner who can take over her father’s robotics company. She also has a Buneary who seems to be sweet on Clemont’s Bunnelby. Everything is falling into place—and Bonnie couldn’t be less happy!
But in the middle of a Team Rocket attack, Bonnie finds herself in danger, and Clemont leaps to her rescue, even sacrificing his precious Aipom Arm in the process. Lilia decides she’s not ready to settle down yet after all, the siblings are reunited, and our heroes are off once again to Snowbelle City!
