Ash and friends are heading towards the Battle Factory where Ash hopes to earn his first Frontier Symbol. A Cleffa emerges from the bushes and makes some friends with Ash and May's Pokémon. It also takes a liking to Misty's Azurill. During a Team Rocket attack, Misty, Max, Pikachu, Azurill, and Cleffa are sent over a cliff and into a river below. Ash, May, and Brock head out to look for them as Misty and Max try to find their way back to them. A storm moves in so Misty and Max are forced to take cover in a cave. Ash and the others meet a Clefairy and a Clefable along their searches, and the next morning, the gang reunites. Several Cleffa, Clefairy, and Clefable help send Team Rocket blasting off again. That night, the Pokémon do their Moon Dance for the full moon.
