Moments after Lillie’s Pokémon Egg hatches into an Ice-type Alolan Vulpix named Snowy, the Egg that Principal Oak has been caring for hatches into a Fire-type Vulpix from Kanto! The whole class thinks Lillie should be Snowy’s Trainer, and Snowy agrees—but Lillie will have to get over her fear of touching Pokémon.

As Lillie introduces Snowy to the malasada shop, Team Rocket swoops in to steal it! Snowy shows a fierce determination in battle, leaving the villains on slippery ground with a Powder Snow attack. When they battle back, Snowy goes flying, and Lillie leaps to grab it without a second thought!


The Pokémon Egg has just hatched into an Alolan Vulpix. Everyone is amazed that the egg has hatched as Lillie tells Snowy it is good to meet it and goes to touch it but stops as she is still nervous. Mallow and Lana are surprised that she can't touch Snowy having had no trouble touching the egg which Lillie attempts to deny as Samson Oak runs into the classroom saying his egg is about to hatch as Professor Kukui joins them. They all watch in amazement as the egg hatches into a Kanto Vulpix. Mallow is amazed that a Vulpix hatched from both eggs as Professor Kukui says he guessed they were ready to hatch but didn't expect them to hatch on the same day which leaves Samson Oak happy.
