Pikachu, Dedenne, and Wooper have been kidnapped, and after an intense battle with Florges, Goodra is in no shape to go after them! While our heroes start a search, the real motivation behind the attack on Goodra’s home becomes clear: Florges is taking care of a sad little Floette, who needs the spring’s healing water to get better. But now, the water appears to be drying up.
Soon, everyone discovers the truth: the Team Rocket trio are slowly draining the wetlands so they can sell the healing water for profit! Goodra and Florges decide to work together against this common enemy, and their combined efforts soon send Team Rocket blasting off again.
When Ash sees how happy Goodra is to be home, he makes a tough decision and offers to let Goodra stay and protect the wetlands and its friends who live there. After many heartfelt farewells, our heroes are off once again to Laverre City, and Goodra is back home!
