When our heroes come across a Skiddo ranch known for its delicious cheese and ice cream, they discover that Serena’s mom, Grace, is there as a Rhyhorn racing coach. Everyone wants to ride a Skiddo, except Clemont.
Grace asks Serena if she’s keeping up her Rhyhorn race training, not knowing her daughter’s dream is to become a Pokémon performer. Meanwhile, Team Rocket shows up to swipe all the goodies! Serena recruits one of the ranch’s racing Rhyhorn to speed after them, and thanks to her exceptional riding and battle skills, the villains are defeated.
When Grace insists that her daughter come home to continue her training as a Rhyhorn racer, Serena finally musters up the courage to tell her mom about her dream. Grace doesn’t seem to take her seriously, so Serena challenges her to a Skiddo race, vowing that if she loses, she will return home. But Serena’s determination shines, and she wins the race—and her mother’s approval!
