Plot

At Chrysa's house, before leaving for work, she has a phone conversation with her mother who insists on her daughter to visit her sometime since she is always busy with her work. However, Chrysa quickly becomes flustered by her mother's question whether she has a "special someone", hanging up the phone in the process. She leaves, but not before briefly speaking to a photo of her with a man and his Psyduck with a scarf.

Later, in a cold afternoon, Chloe arrives to the Cerise Laboratory with her Eevee, just in time to see Professor Cerise leaving for some "exciting work", with Chrysa and Ren seeing him leave, immediately followed by Ash and Goh leaving to find Ice Pokemon due to the weather. Chloe is left dismayed, as she wants to eat lunch with the duo since Parker went to Jinny's house with Yamper, who himself was reluctant to go with him until Chloe requested him to, and Talia had to leave due to completing the work of an artist who had injured his hand. On entering the lab, Ren and Chloe are scared by Gengar popping out of the wall. Eevee mimics it and upsets it, prompting the Shadow Pokémon to leave after Chrysa calmly tells him to stop his antics. Chloe then asks whether she can watch Chrysa work, to which the latter gladly agrees. As usual, Chrysa remains cool in her work while Ren gets tensed in a few situations, though he is helped by his female partner. During their work, Chloe begins to admire Chrysa for her coolness. Eventually, Chrysa's work is done for the day. She later asks Chloe whether she wants to have a girls' night at the former's house, after Ash and Goh don't return, to which Chloe happily accepts, after Chrysa promises her to teach her some easy hair braiding techniques.

Both Chrysa and Chloe leave while Ren continues his work in the lab. On their way, Chrysa buys several food items. They reach her apartment, though upon entering her room, Chloe is shocked by Psyduck merchandise and other items scattered around, to which Chrysa hastily puts all the clothes in the cupboard. Chloe asks Chrysa whether she likes Psyduck due to its merchandise present in the room, to which she answers in the affirmative. When Chloe tells that she can become the Duck Pokémon's Trainer, the female assistant tells that she feels relaxed by just looking at the merch. Eventually, the two prepare to eat. Back in the Vermillion Port, however, Ash and Goh aren't able to find a single Ice Pokemon and are forced to leave due to their hunger, though on leaving, they miss a school of Lapras who had been hiding in the waters.

Back in Chrysa's room, both Chloe and Chrysa are enjoying the night, eating some Poké Puffs. Back in a ramen shop, Ash and Goh have a conversation with a man who has a Psyduck wearing the scarf The Psyduck receives a headache and unintentionally uses Confusion on everybody present, though it is calmed down by its Trainer. To make up for the actions, the Trainer orders some ramen for both Trainers. Once again, in Chrysa's room, the two are enjoying the scents of perfumes, the latter of which is considered a part of Pokemon research by the assistant. After wearing their pajamas, Chloe wearing a Psyduck based one bought by Chrysa, which embarrasses her, they go to bed. After a brief talk, Chloe admits her admiration towards Chrysa, to which the latter recalls the day she suffered her biggest failure. The time when she lost her research papers on her way to a conference. While depressed, she was consoled by the Psyduck wearing the scarf who was accompanied by its Trainer. After giving back the scarf to the Duck Pokemon, after finding it feeling uncomfortable without it, Chrysa played with them, to the point where she forgot her depression, and the two parted ways later, but not before taking a photo with the snowman they had created together. Back to the present, Chrysa admits that seeing the photo when she's disappointed cheers her up. However, Chloe thinks that she has some feelings for the man.

The next day, back in the lab, Chloe thanks Chrysa for the night, before the latter begins her daily work. Chloe finds Ash and Goh having breakfast, though they admit that weren't able to catch any Ice Pokemon but met a person having a Psyduck with a scarf, which intrigues Chloe, who sets off to find the Trainer, with Ash and Goh in tow, but to no avail. They, however, find the Psyduck and its Trainer, after the Duck Pokemon repeated the same act it did to Chrysa, to Chloe. The latter drags the man to the Cerise Laboratory where Chrysa is sweeping the snow. An emotional reunion takes place between Chrysa and not the man, but his Psyduck, much to Chloe's shock while Ash and Goh and their Pokemon are left confused. Chrysa then takes another photo with the Psyduck along with everybody else present and keeps it on her lab desk and thanks, a rather annoyed, Chloe for the reunion.
