Synopsis

A song catches the ears of all of Ash, May, Brock, Jessie, and James's Pokémon. Ash's Pokémon are eating, May and Brock's Pokémon are sleeping, and Jessie and James's Pokémon are pushing a statue of Giovanni up a hill. Meowth jumps out a few times before all the Pokémon are shown dancing to the song.

Meowth is relaxing in a hot spring when the water becomes too hot and he jumps out. Then he is shown sitting in front of a Taj Mahal-type building eating curry- he blows fire out his mouth. Then he is sleeping under an Altaria before he polishes the Giovanni statue and falls off.

The group of main Pokémon continue to dance as a Whismur with maracas and a Ludicolo slide past.

Meowth and Pikachu dance together, and the flying main Pokémon move through the air.

Finally, everyone dances again as a Loudred slides past.
