A Pokémon School camping trip kicks off with a scary story from Lana! Everyone thinks it’s just one of her jokes, but the story seems to be coming true when our heroes suddenly fall asleep and then wake up starving! The culprit is a Morelull, who’s been draining their energy with its roots.
Ash offers to let it drain all the energy it wants from him, as he refuels by devouring Mallow’s delicious curry. Soon, Morelull joins its friends, who have gathered in the branches of an old tree. As one, they evolve into Shiinotic and share their borrowed energy with the tree, which bursts into beautiful bloom!
