Our heroes are traveling through the woods when they hear a cry for help! They find a woman whose leg is stuck in a rocky crevice, and manage to free her. She shows them the Mega Stone she was searching for, reveals herself as Nurse Joy, and takes them to meet Professor Sycamore at the Pokémon Center—where she and her assistant Audino get into a heated argument!
Everyone is determined to help the two of them get along, particularly when the professor points out that a strong bond is necessary for Mega Evolution. The two partners work together to heal an injured Makuhita—and when Team Rocket attacks, their bond is proven when Audino Mega Evolves and sends them blasting off again!
After Professor Sycamore meets Squishy and confesses that he doesn’t know what it is, he decides to return to his lab for more research. They part ways as our heroes head for Snowbelle City!
