The round starts up with a commercial for the Xtransceiver featuring a group of Patrat finding a Xtransceiver for a woman. A man calls cut on the recording and another thanks the Patrat's manager for their good work. The manager, a young girl named White, tells the man that her Pokémon acting company, the BW Agency is on the job for roles like this.

Suddenly, the director yells at his assistant to go remove a person that is interrupting their filming. Suddenly, the person yells loudly to the skies about his intention of beating the Pokémon League. The assistant tries to get the young man to move from his spot but the boy refuses until he is done shouting is dreams to the skies.

As the young man continues yelling, the director thanks White for her ability to bring certain Pokémon whenever they are needed for filming. However, when the director thanks her for bring a male and female Tepig, White freezes up because she was told that she only needed to bring a single female Tepig. The young man from before comes running up to them and happily announces that the Pokémon League is starting only one year from now and decides to leave now that he is done shouting his pledge.

The young man tells his Pokémon, a Braviary named Brav, a Munna named Musha, and a Tepig named Tep to follow him. Just as they are leaving, Tep notices the female Tepig in White's Poké Ball and releases her from it. Tep and the female Tepig, Gigi, quickly befriend each other and start to play around. White instantly realizes that Tep is a male Tepig and quickly takes the chance to introduce herself to his Trainer.

After getting introduced to White, the young man introduces himself to her a Black. White immediately tries taking Black back to the shooting scene to ask him if he is available to help in their commercial filming but finds that several people have fainted upon arriving. The director tries blaming Black for the injured people and threatens to call the authorities on him. White, realizing that if Black gets arrested, so will his Tepig, tries to claim his innocence. Black tells White to mind her own business and that he will prove his own innocence by himself.

Black puts Musha on his head and the Dream Eater Pokémon begins chewing on his head, shocking White. Black's mind slowly becomes blank and he begins to piece together the clues. After figuring out the clues, Black removes Musha from his head and begins pointing out the evidence. Black uses Tep's flames to uncover an electrified piece of webbing and unearths the culprit, a wild Galvantula.

Using Tep, Black defeats the Galvantula by setting its webs on fire with an Ember attack. Despite Black saving the day, he accidentally set all the recording equipment on fire and burnt them to a crisp as well. White tells the director to put all the charges on the BW Agency and announces that she has hired Black as her new employee. Despite the boy's protesting, White demands that Black refer to her as "Boss" from now one. As they bicker, a young man with green hair is seen crying over Pokémon being used by people.
