As our heroes continue their journey toward Nimbasa City along a winding mountain trail, they find a lost Cubchoo, stranded by a powerful storm. They soon encounter a group of Beartic and try to reunite the Cubchoo with its friends—but these Beartic don’t recognize Cubchoo, and they are not happy with the intruders!

As the angry Beartic shower our heroes with Ice-type attacks, a mountain ranger named Cliff and his partner Mienfoo come to the rescue! After getting them out of danger, Cliff explains the situation: there are two groups of Beartic on this mountain, and they don’t get along at all! He figures out that the lost Cubchoo must belong to the other group, and they set out in search of Cubchoo’s friends.

While they explore the mountain, Cliff notices that all the local Berries have been destroyed by the storm. This seems to be the reason for the Beartic feud: there’s not enough food to go around, so the two groups are fighting over it! The conflict puts Meowth’s negotiation skills to the test, but our heroes eventually manage to return Cubchoo to its own group, and Cliff offers to guide the hungry Beartic to a forest where lots of Berries grow.

Meanwhile, the sinister plot Jessie and James are unleashing on the Nimbasa City subway system is just beginning to take shape. Ingo and Emmet, the Subway Bosses, are determined to get to the bottom of it. Jessie and James are confident that they’ll succeed, even as Dr. Zager warns them to steer clear of the authorities...

Ash and his friends are traveling when they find an injured Cubchoo. They go to find some food for it and Meowth finds an Oran Berry, but they are attacked by a group of Beartic. A Mienfoo saves them. Mienfoo's Trainer tells them to get away.

Later, they rest in a cabin owned by the man who saved them, Cliff. He reveals to them that there are two groups of Beartic on the mountain, the ones at the summit and the ones at the foot of the mountain. Cilan comments that it must be the Beartic who lived at the foot of the mountain attacked them and the Cubchoo must belong to the group from the summit. Ash then suggests that they will take the Cubchoo to its group and Cubchoo dances happily. Cliff then tries to catch Meowth and nearly succeeds, but Meowth breaks out and shouts that he belongs to no one.

They then head out to find the mountain group but run into more Beartic. Oshawott and Tepig come out during the battle too. The gang get separated from their Pokémon after Meowth is frozen with Icy Wind. Meanwhile, Ingo and Emmet are investigating the subway tracks and catch a glimpse of Team Rocket and give chase, but lose sight of them. Axew and Cubchoo begin to feel hungry so Meowth, Pikachu and Oshawott go to look for food. Meowth and Oshawott force Pikachu to steal berries from some Beartic. While they are eating, the group of Beartic shows up. Meowth tries to argue with the Beartic that the group found the food "fair and square", but he has little success and ends up being frozen again.

Meanwhile, the gang find out why the group at the foot of the mountain attacked them. A storm had destroyed all their berries and they thought that the Cubchoo from the summit was trying to steal their food. They then meet the mountain group.

Meanwhile,when the Beartic were about to battle the Pokémon, the group from the summit saved them. When two Beartic used Sheer Cold, four boulders started to fall down. Pikachu, Tepig and Oshawott destroyed three boulders and the two groups of Beartic worked together to destroy the last one.

Cliff says he'll find a new habitat for the Beartic and the gang continue on their way to Nimbasa City.
