Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.

The round opens up to an evening at the Juniper Pokémon Lab in Nuvema Town. Professor Juniper is seen talking to someone on the phone about her plan to entrust three Pokémon to three upcoming Trainers the next day. Before she goes to eat dinner, Professor Juniper decides to put her starter Pokémon, Snivy, Oshawott, and Tepig into their Poké Balls.

Before she can, Professor Juniper is interrupted by a phone call from her friend Fennel. Tepig notices some food on Professor Juniper's desk and burns one of the Berries to eat it. While it eats, Tepig accidentally splashes Berry Juice onto Snivy, angering it. Snivy attacks Tepig and the two get into a fight, worrying Oshawott in the process. Oshawott tries to stop the two from fighting but only gets itself hurt in the process.

Angered, Oshawott goes into a violent frenzy and begins wildly attacking the other two Pokémon, forcing them to defend themselves. Overhearing the commotion, Professor Juniper sees the mess the three Pokémon made and sends them back into their Poké Balls. While she cleans up the mess with her Minccino, Professor Juniper worries if Tepig, Oshawott, and Snivy can become friends with their Trainers.
