Sally was a young girl who first introduced herself to Ash and his friends after they rode the water taxi she and her father ran together. The taxi took travelers to Castelia City. She was friends with a Gothitelle who helped her sell tickets and serve refreshments to the passengers. She explained that their taxi business would end when the Skyarrow Bridge would be finished.
The young Sally that Ash met was merely an illusion created by Gothitelle from its memories. The real Sally was actually a woman whom he met earlier at a Poké Mart. Like the group, she also tried to cross the Skyarrow Bridge on her way to a new job, but she became lost in Gothitelle's illusion. She eventually came across Gothitelle and tried to stop it from attacking the group. Everyone was shocked by this, and Sally had to explain everything.
When the Skyarrow Bridge was built, her father was forced to shut down his water taxi business because it would no longer be needed. Sally invited Gothitelle to come live with them in their new city. When Sally grew up, she left her home and Gothitelle behind to become a doctor. Gothitelle was upset by this and left one day. Sally explained to Gothitelle that while their life was wonderful, they could not keep living in the past. Then, she promised to stop by when she visited the Skyarrow Bridge again. Content with this, Gothitelle mysteriously disappeared after saying goodbye to Sally.
|Gothitelle is a wild Pokémon who became good friends of Sally in her youth. It helped Sally and her father run a water taxi business before the Skyarrow Bridge was constructed. It went to live with Sally after her father's ferry business was shut down. Sally eventually grew up and left the house. Gothitelle was saddened when she left and traveled back to Skyarrow Bridge to relive its fondest memories.
Gothitelle created a fog around the bridge to deter people from crossing. Still, Ash, Iris, and Cilan crossed anyway and Gothitelle attacked them. It sent the group into its illusionary memory world, which gave the group insight into Gothitelle's past where it was noticeably happier.
Later, back in the present time, they followed Gothitelle to Skyarrow Bridge where it attacked them once more. That's when the real Sally showed up to stop it. Gothitelle was happy to be reunited with its old friend and cleared the fog from the bridge after realizing it needed to focus on the present, so it allowed Ash and company cross. It then mysteriously disappeared.
