After Serena registers for the Pokémon Showcase, our heroes find the locals busily hanging decorations and wrapping presents! Ramos explains that Coumarine City holds an annual festival where Trainers give their Pokémon presents under the giant Pledging Tree. Ash and Serena go shopping for gifts, and while Serena has great success, Ash can’t find anything. On the way back, Serena asks what kind of present would make him happy, which gives him an idea!
That evening, when the festival begins, Team Rocket swoops in to steal all the presents! Our heroes quickly join forces to send the villains blasting off again and distribute the gifts to their rightful recipients. It turns out the thing that makes Ash happiest is food, and he’s gathered a huge harvest of berries for all of his Pokémon! Serena has decorated some lovely accessories for Fennekin and Pancham to wear on stage. Clemont has created a music box with little figures of Bunnelby, Chespin, and Luxio, and Bonnie has drawn a picture of the whole gang. There’s one present left under the tree, and it’s for Serena: her mother has sent her a stunning dress to wear in her upcoming performance!
