Ash, Iris, and Cilan are continuing their journey. Cilan checks the map, and he sees that the Skyarrow Bridge is up ahead, and if they cross it, they will be in Castelia City, where Ash will be competing for his third Unova Gym Badge. Ash becomes excited and they run to get closer to the bridge.

Once they are there, the group spots a Poké Mart. Ash decides he wants to pay a visit to Professor Juniper. Just then, a woman walks out of the Poké Mart. Ash, not looking where he is going, almost runs into her. He apologizes and allows the woman to go ahead of him. Iris walks up and tells Ash that he's still a little kid, but Ash says that is because he is excited.

Ash goes inside and contacts Professor Juniper via the PC. Ash tells Juniper that he caught a Sewaddle, which makes her proud. She asks Ash if he wants to swap Sewaddle with Pidove and Ash says yes. Soon enough, Ash has his Pidove again. Then, Ash spots the woman he almost ran into earlier staring at some paintings. Ash asks what they are and the woman merely calls them "Water Taxis" with no details and walks off. The group is confused.

When the group walks outside, an eerie fog rolls in. Just then, an Officer Jenny rides by on her motorcycle. Cilan asks if she could clear the fog. Officer Jenny sends out her Swanna, and Ash scans it with his Pokédex. Jenny commands Swanna to use Defog, but to no avail. Suddenly, a van drives by, and Jenny chases it as no vehicles should be driven in the fog. Ash, despite the risks, decides to cross the Skyarrow Bridge anyway. Iris and Cilan have no choice but to follow him.

Once they get on the bridge, Iris tells her Axew to stay in her hair. Suddenly, a Psybeam hits the ground under the group. They look up to see where it came from, and it came from a Gothitelle! Gothitelle does not want the group to cross. Ash calls on Snivy and she uses Leaf Blade, but Gothitelle blocks with Protect. It then uses another Psybeam attack, but Snivy counters with Leaf Storm. Suddenly, the ground below the group collapses!

The group wake up to find that they are just at the spot where Officer Jenny and her Swanna first appeared. Just then, they see a little girl appear to invite them to ride in a little boat called the "Water Taxi" and go across the river that way. So Ash and co. walk on. On the boat, the captain yells "All Aboard!" and sets sail. The little girl, whose name is Sally, gives snacks to the group. Then she introduces them to her Pokémon, a Gothitelle! Cilan soon becomes suspicious. Meanwhile, an old woman asks the captain if he's heard that the "Water Taxi" is going to close soon, and he says yes. This makes Sally and Gothitelle really sad. Suddenly, they reach land after a seemingly short journey.

However, Ash soon realizes that they've returned back where they began! The group starts to get worried. Cilan then claims he has an idea of what's going on. He claims that it has something to do with Gothitelle and that they should go investigate. Ash and Iris agree. So they walk over to Sally and Gothitelle, who are stocking up on more snacks for their next and final voyage. Ash asks Sally if Gothitelle is her Pokémon, and Sally says no and they she has just befriended it. Then the captain calls Sally to ask her something. Then, the same fog rolls in from earlier and Gothitelle starts walking away. So the group follows it.

They follow Gothitelle to the same spot on the Skyarrow Bridge. Gothitelle looks hostile and blasts a Psybeam attack. Cilan finally has the answer: this is the same Gothitelle that's accidentally thrown itself, along with Ash, Iris and Cilan into a little dream world! Ash demands that Gothitelle return them, but it refuses. Cilan suggests that Ash battle it. So Ash sends out Snivy again.

Gothitelle is angered and uses Psybeam once more, which Snivy dodges easily, though it breaks many parts of the bridge. Ash calls for Leaf Blade followed by a Vine Whip, but Gothitelle uses Double Team, confusing Snivy, as well as letting her get hit by a Psybeam cast by the real Gothitelle. Ash orders another Leaf Blade, though Gothitelle uses Psybeam again, hitting Snivy once more. Snivy looks badly hurt.

Ash asks Snivy if she can go on, which Snivy nods determinedly. Ash tells his Snivy to use Leaf Storm, which Gothitelle avoids by using Protect. Then, suddenly, Gothitelle uses Psychic to raise all the broken parts of the bridge. It was about to send it at Snivy when suddenly, the woman from earlier turns up!

The woman reveals that she is an older version of Sallly and that the younger one was merely an illusion made by Gothitelle. Sally tells Gothitelle that they used to be old friends, and they go through a number of flashbacks. Gothitelle was saddened when Sally went to train to be a doctor, and it escaped from the factory. After the recounts, they wipe each others tears off their faces. Gothitelle faces the fact the it can't go back in the future, no matter how much memories it can recount. Gothitelle decides to send Ash, Iris, and Cilan back to their world.

Later, the group is saying goodbye to Sally. Sally suddenly notices Gothitelle on top of the bridge, which they say a tender goodbye. Sally ask if she can visit Gothitelle again, which Gothitelle nods to as well as waving goodbye and vanishing. Officer Jenny turns up and says how strange it was for the fog to go away so quickly. The group look at each other and laugh, and Iris remarks it's not the strange.

The group say goodbye to Sally and continue on their journey. They cross the Skyarrow Bridge and look at the Castelia City skyline, and Ash says he is ready to get his third Unova badge.
