The Pokémon School students are visiting Hokulani Observatory for a meteor shower—no, it’s a Minior shower! The space-dwelling Pokémon fall to the ground, their heavy shells cracking open in a beautiful display of color and light.
Poipole helps one orange Minior escape its shell, and they quickly become friends! After the next night’s shower, the colorful Pokémon float up into the sky…and gradually disappear, including Poipole’s friend. Sophocles’s cousin Molayne explains that this is the natural order of things, and Sophocles sadly remembers a Minior he befriended years ago, who vanished in the same way. It’s a bittersweet moment, but our heroes are grateful for the experience!
