While following Suicune, Eusine accidentally ends up on Pasio. He sees Suicune nearby, but it runs away. Eusine vows to catch up to it this time and chases after it, but to his surprise, he finds it with Kris.
Elsewhere, Silver and his Sneasel are having a battle against Candice and her Abomasnow. After the battle, Jasmine, who had been watching, comments on the fact that Silver healed his Sneasel right away. This reminds Silver of the time that he scoffed at Jasmine for taking care of a sick Pokémon instead of just letting it go, and he says that it's a pain for him if Sneasel can't battle. Candice scolds him for talking so rudely about his partner Pokémon, not realizing that's Silver's way of showing that he cares. After he leaves, Candice realizes that the sygna suit he's wearing is proof that he and Sneasel have a strong bond.
After Sneasel is fully recovered, Silver decides to look for their next opponent. Spying Kris and Suicune walking further down the road, Silver decides to follow them. When he finally catches up to them, he finds them talking to Eusine and Morty, recognizing Eusine from the Burned Tower. Morty introduces Eusine to the others as an old friend of his, and Eusine tells them about his passion for Suicune and his dream to be accepted as Suicune's trainer. Unfortunately, the Suicune here on Pasio has already chosen Kris as its partner. To Silver's disdain, he's not upset by this in the slightest, instead congratulating Kris on being chosen by Suicune. Kris comments on the fact that Suicune has been disappearing on her recently, and on cue, Suicune wanders off. Eusine doesn't think it's distrust, and he wonders if Suicune is wandering off because it's curious about something.
After the group talks for a bit more, Kris's Suicune returns with a Shiny Suicune in tow. Everyone is shocked by the appearance of the second Suicune, and it runs away before they can do anything. Eusine marvels at the sight of this beautiful, alternately-colored Suicune, scarcely believing it's real. Morty and Silver show him that they each met a Ho-Oh on Pasio, too, and Morty asks Eusine what he's going to do now. Eusine declares that he's going to find that Suicune, and Kris and Morty volunteer to help him search. Silver, however, refuses to work with Eusine, though he's intrigued by the prospect of finding Suicune and forming a sync pair with it. Eusine cheerfully says that makes them rivals, and Silver asks him why he doesn't have a problem with someone else partnering with Suicune. Eusine says that if Suicune chooses Silver as its partner, he'll accept Suicune's choice, but he'll never give up his dream to catch up to Suicune. He asks Silver if Silver has a dream, but Silver scoffs at the thought. Eusine says that he hopes Silver will find a dream of his own someday, and he heads off to start searching. With Morty and Kris's help, Eusine manages to find Suicune, but it escapes. He vows to keep following Suicune until he finds out what Suicune wants in a Trainer.
Time passes, and the news of the Shiny Suicune spreads over the island. Plenty of people try to chase it, but no one succeeds in catching it. Silver overhears a group of people in town talking about the chase, and how everyone has given up on it by now except Eusine. The Lass admires his tenacity, but the others scoff at it, calling him reckless and out of touch with reality. Silver interrupts the conversation to scoff at their weak mentality, looking down on Eusine even though they can't catch Suicune, either. He challenges them to battle and defeats them easily with his Sneasel. Morty shows up to compliment Silver's growth, and the group flees, not wanting to face Morty's Ho-Oh. Morty comments on the same thing that the group had noticed - that everyone has given up looking for Suicune except Eusine - and Silver admits he's surprised by Eusine's unwavering persistence. Morty says that Eusine wants to be accepted by Suicune, no matter what. Silver says he can understand that feeling, so maybe he does have a dream, and Morty hopes that both Eusine's and Silver's dreams will come true.
More time passes, and Eusine is searching for Suicune in the forest with Kris and Silver. Kris complains how hard it is to find Suicune, and Eusine just laughs and says that's nothing new. Silver scowls at the fact that he's able to stay in such high spirits despite the lack of success and the fact that he's right next to someone who already accomplished what he wants to do, and he asks if Eusine has thought about giving up on his dream. Eusine says he's never resented anyone or thought of giving up on his dream, because while his ultimate goal may be to be accepted by Suicune, the moments he spends running towards that dream are equally important to him. He also says that his searching hasn't been completely in vain, as he's been able to note the locations of water sources that have been purified by Suicune in an effort to predict its movement pattern. In order to be an honest Trainer for Suicune and have an equal playing field with his rival, Eusine offers to tell Silver about all the places he's found, which Silver accepts.
Later, Suicune is running along a beach at night, and Eusine intercepts it, alongside Kris, Silver, and Morty. He asks the others if they're really okay with him challenging Suicune, and Silver says that Suicune can tell who's been following it this whole time - it's only looking at Eusine. Kris and Silver tell him to go ahead and make his dream come true, and Eusine thanks them before turning around to challenge Suicune. He sends out his Electrode to battle Suicune, and eventually, Suicune stops fighting and accepts Eusine as its partner. Eusine marvels Suicune up close, and Morty congratulates him on finally accomplishing his dream. Silver tells Eusine that he has a dream, too - to surpass everyone else and become the world's strongest Trainer with his Pokémon by his side. Eusine smiles and says that it's now Silver's turn to make his dream come true. He also gives Silver a gift to cheer him on in the pursuit of his dream - a Pokémon Egg that he found while exploring Johto. Silver says he'll train it to be strong no matter what Pokémon it is, and Eusine looks forward to the day he can see the two of them as a sync pair.
Days later, Silver defeats a pair of Team Rocket Grunts who were causing trouble in town. Lance shows up to give him a hand, but Silver has already taken care of everything. Silver promises Lance that he and Sneasel will get even stronger and catch up to him, so he'd better be ready, and Lance says he's looking forward to it.

- Pokémon Center
|Eusine||I'll follow wherever you go!|
|Eusine||I won't stop running if it's for my dream—even if I'm all alone!|
|Silver||Heh, I'm a fan of that attitude—the way you don't rely on anyone.|
- Followed You to Pasio
|Eusine||Where did you go, Suicune?!|
I was following Suicune, and now I'm somewhere I don't recognize... What is this place?
|Eusine||Are you testing me? I'll catch up to you this time!|
|Eusine||Hm? Who's that?|
- Silver and Sneasel
|Silver||Good job, Sneasel.|
I'll heal you now. Stay still for a bit.
|Jasmine||He's used to treating Sneasel after battling.|
|Silver||... ... ...|
|Silver||Speaking of weaklings, the city's Gym Leader isn't here.|
|Silver||Supposedly they're taking care of a sick Pokémon at the Lighthouse.|
Hmph. Boo-hoo! Just let sick Pokémon go!
|Silver||A Pokémon that can't battle is worthless!|
|Silver||It's a pain in the neck for me if he can't battle.|
|Candice||That's not a very nice way to talk about him, is it?|
He battled for you.
|Silver||That's why I can't leave him alone. Especially if he's wounded.|
|Silver||Sorry to bother you.|
Don't forget to heal your Pokémon too.
|Candice||I guess if he really wasn't taking care of his Pokémon, he wouldn't be wearing a sygna suit.|
|Jasmine||Yeah. That outfit is proof that they have a strong bond as a sync pair.|
|Candice||I guess how he feels about Sneasel was obvious all along.|
|Silver||Looks like you're fully recovered.|
Then let's head out for some training. We have to find our next opponent...
|Silver||There. Let's follow them.|
|Eusine||How surprising to reunite with you on Pasio!|
And it's even more surprising that you've been accepted by Ho-Oh!
|Silver||So Morty's here.|
And that's the guy from the Burned Tower...
- Eusine's Dream
|Morty||Eusine is an old friend of mine.|
There's a Pokémon he's passionate about, and he's been chasing it forever.
|Eusine||That Pokémon? Suicune!|
Until Suicune accepts me as a Trainer, I'm going to follow it wherever it goes!
|Silver||Suicune? Isn't it already...|
|Eusine||Yeah. Unfortunately, this Suicune has already chosen Kris as its partner.|
But if that partner is a wonderful Trainer like you, I don't mind.
I congratulate you from the bottom of my heart for being chosen by Suicune, Kris!
|Kris||Thank you so much! It makes me so happy to hear that from you, Eusine!|
|Silver||Hmph. How kind of you to celebrate someone else's success.|
|Kris||But recently, Suicune has been disappearing when I'm not looking...|
|Kris||Ah! Look—it happened again.|
|Eusine||Hmm. It doesn't seem like there's a lack of trust, but...|
Maybe it's curious about something?
|Kris||Oh, it's back! Where'd you go this ti—|
|Morty||There're two Suicune?|
|Silver||And one of them is...|
How brave it is! How refreshing it is! How beautiful it is! And how quickly it moves!
And its colors are different from the Suicune I've been following!
I can't believe it! Who knew this was possible?!
What kind of place is Pasio...
|Morty||I'm definitely surprised, but something like this did happen before.|
|Eusine||It's like I'm in a dream...|
|Morty||So, Eusine. What are you going to do now?|
|Eusine||That should be obvious! I'm going to look for that Suicune!|
|Silver||You say you're gonna look for it, but do you have any clue where it could be?|
|Eusine||Of course! For instance, I know...|
|Kris||Suicune likes water!|
I'll help you out, Eusine.
Let's split up and find it!
|Morty||I'll go with you too, Kris.|
|Eusine||Morty, Kris... Thank you both!|
|Eusine||What are you going to do?|
|Silver||Sorry, but I'm not working with you.|
Although...finding Suicune and making it my partner Pokémon wouldn't be so bad.
|Eusine||I see. That would make us rivals!|
|Silver||You seem very confident. Wouldn't you have a problem if I partnered up with Suicune?|
|Eusine||If Suicune chooses you, there's nothing I can do about that.|
It would just mean that you, as a Trainer, were better suited for Suicune.
However! No matter who my rival is, I'll never give up!
It's my dream to catch up to Suicune, after all!
|Silver||Your dream, huh...|
|Eusine||Dreams give you courage and energy!|
What about you? Do you have a dream you're chasing?
|Silver||Does it look like I'd have something like that?|
I don't have any dreams I'm telling YOU about.
|Eusine||I see... If you say so.|
I hope you manage to find a dream for yourself one day!
|Eusine||It escaped! Suicune...|
I won't stop following you until I've found out what you're after... You hear me?
- The Chase Continues
|Collector||We haven't even heard of any sightings of that strangely colored Suicune lately, have we?|
|Street Thug||No matter who chases it, they can't catch it.|
I guess everyone just gave up.
|Scientist||When Suicune appeared for the first time, everyone was so excited about it. But now...|
|Lass||Well, there's that one guy who's still chasing after it, I think. I believe his name was Eusine?|
It's amazing that he's still chasing it without giving up, right?
|Scientist||I don't think he's in touch with reality. He's not tenacious—he's just reckless.|
|Street Thug||He doesn't understand that he can't do it.|
|Silver||You all talk big, don't you?|
|Street Thug||What's your problem?|
|Scientist||We can talk about whatever we want! It's none of your business.|
|Silver||Sure. You can say whatever you want.|
But with a weak mentality like that, no wonder you couldn't catch up to Suicune.
|Street Thug||You little—|
|Scientist||You want to test if we're really as weak as you say?|
|Silver||Sure. Come at me.|
There's nothing more annoying than people who can't do anything unless they're in a group!
|Street Thug||You better not regret it when we make you cry!|
|Scientist||It's just one Sneasel!|
|Silver||What's wrong—done already? Just all talk, huh?|
|Street Thug||Grr. Why, you...|
|Morty||Looks like you've gotten stronger again.|
|Collector||We'll leave for now, but we'll be back, so don't you forget...|
|Morty||The swarm of people pursuing Suicune has completely dispersed.|
The only one who's still seriously looking for Suicune is Eusine.
|Silver||Yeah, I haven't given up, but...|
His unwavering persistence in chasing after Suicune has surprised me.
|Morty||It's his dream to be accepted by Suicune.|
I think you can understand pretty well how Eusine feels, too.
|Silver||I guess so...|
If we're talking about something that you want to happen, no matter what...
|Silver||Then maybe I do have what he calls a dream.|
|Morty||I believe that Eusine's dream will come true.|
And yours too, of course!
|Kris||Finding Suicune is really difficult, isn't it?|
|Eusine||Hahaha! That's nothing new!|
|Silver||Aren't you in high spirits.|
You're following a dream that'll never come true, and you're right next to someone who already fulfilled that same dream.
Haven't you thought of giving up on a dream you can't reach?
You don't have a single grudge?
|Eusine||I've never resented anyone or thought of giving up on my dream. Not even once.|
My dream is to be accepted by Suicune...
But the moments I spend running towards that dream are equally precious to me.
Results are obviously important, but the process of getting there is also something I want to cherish.
All the time I've spent on my dream is also an important treasure.
|Silver||... ... ...|
|Eusine||Besides, I haven't been wasting my time aimlessly.|
Look. The water here is so pure and clear.
Pasio's water is already clean, so usually you wouldn't notice this slight difference...
But I can tell that this water has been purified by Suicune!
I found other places with water like this. By comparing these places, we can predict Suicune's movement pattern.
All that's left is to anticipate where it will go and wait for it there!
|Eusine||I can teach you, if you'd like!|
I want to be an honest Trainer for Suicune.
I'll tell you about those places, if you want!
|Eusine||Hey, Suicune! We meet again!|
- Your Turn
|Eusine||Are you sure you want to give me the chance to challenge Suicune?|
|Silver||Even Suicune should know who's been following it this whole time.|
It's looking at you, and only you.
|Kris||Suicune's waiting for a Trainer who shows more passion for it than anyone else!|
|Silver||You've been talking about it so much. Go on and make your dream come true.|
|Eusine||All right! Come on, Suicune. Let's battle!|
|Eusine||It's been around ten years since the day I set off on my journey to find you...|
I've finally caught up, Suicune!
Oh, Suicune... You look even more brave, refreshing, and beautiful up close!
|Eusine||Thank you, Morty! Kris and Silver, too! I thank you all from the bottom of my heart!|
|Silver||Didn't expect you'd actually make it happen.|
|Eusine||Yes! After talking about it for so long, it finally happened!|
|Silver||You asked me before what my dream is, didn't you?|
|Silver||There're some people I need to defeat.|
I'm gonna surpass them and become the world's strongest Trainer...
I think that's my dream.
And I'll do it together with my Pokémon.
|Eusine||I see. What a wonderful dream!|
Well then, Silver. It's your turn to make your dream come true.
|Silver||Heh, no need to tell me!|
|Eusine||Well, since you've started chasing your dream, here's a gift to cheer you on.|
|Silver||Is this...a Pokémon Egg?|
|Eusine||This is a mysterious Egg I found when I was exploring Johto.|
It might help you fulfill your dream.
|Kris||I'm very curious... What kind of Egg is it?|
|Eusine||That's something to look forward to when it hatches!|
|Silver||All right, I'll take it off your hands.|
No matter what Pokémon it is, I'll train it to be strong.
|Eusine||Sure! One day you can show me what the two of you look like as a sync pair!|
|Silver||Have you had enough?|
You weaklings shouldn't be ganging up and bothering people.
|Team Rocket Grunt (1)||Tsk. Don't get cocky just because you've got a bit of talent!|
|Team Rocket Grunt (2)||We'll teach you a lesson next time!|
|Silver||You're too late. There's nothing left for you.|
|Lance||Hahaha! I can see that!|
|Silver||I'm gonna... No, WE'RE gonna get even stronger than we are now.|
Every moment, I'll be running at full speed. I'll definitely catch up to you.
You better prepare yourself.
|Lance||Of course. I'm looking forward to it, Silver!|
