Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.


Liko, Roy, and Dot are traveling through a forest to find the Pokémon known as "the unworldly" which Roy had heard of. They soon hear noises coming from deeper in the woods, until three people who look very similar to them suddenly appear before them. While Liko's Hatenna uses Heal Pulse to heal them and their Pokémon, the three Trainers, Luka, Rai, and Bocco, reveal that, just like Liko and her friends, they are students from Naranja Academy who are taking on the Terastal Training course. However, they had gotten lost on their way to their designated Gyms and wandered through a foggy forest, until they arrived before a spooky-looking tree that seemed to have a ghostly face. Since they couldn't go any further, they decided to turn back, only for the strap on Luka's bag to break. She had used a vine from a nearby tree to repair it, but at that moment, a scary Pokémon had attacked them, and they had fled, unable to repel it by battling it. Based on their description of the Pokémon, Roy and Dot deduce that it could be "the unworldly" they are looking for. When Liko and her friends mention that they want to find it to write a report about it, Luka and her friends get scared at the mere idea and flee in terror while thanking them from their aid.

Liko and her friends continue on deeper into the forest. As fog starts rolling in, a group of Mankey suddenly flees past them on the treetops. Only moments after they have passed by, another Pokémon appears before them. Using her Rotom Phone, Liko identifies it as an Annihilape, a Pokémon that has gained power not constrained by the limits of flesh through rage, making the children realize that this Pokémon is "the unworldly" they were looking for. Annihilape starts attacking them, forcing the children to defend themselves with their Pokémon, with Quaxly and Floragato holding it back while Fuecoco knocks it down with Flame Charge, giving the three a chance to run away. They eventually arrive at the side of a river and stop to catch their breath. Hearing noise nearby, they find a group of Mankey next to the tree with a ghostly face that they had heard of. One of the Mankey is holding a snapped vine, which Liko realizes must be the same one that Luka had used to repair her bag. Dot figures that this tree must be important to the Mankey in some way, and since the three of them and their Pokémon resemble the group they met earlier, the Mankey are mistaking them for the culprits. The Mankey start throwing rocks at the three of them, ignoring their pleas of innocence. Several Primeape charge at them, but Floragato, Fuecoco, and Quaxly are able to fight them off. One Mankey throws a rock that almost hits Terapagos, but Hatenna uses her Psychic powers to defend it. Annihilape appears again, and the Mankey and Primeape move aside to make way for it. Dot theorizes that Annihilape could be the guardian deity of these Mankey. Annihilape attacks with a flurry of Shadow Balls, and the group's Pokémon fight back, but their attacks don't seem to work. Deciding on a combination attack, they simultaneously attack with Magical Leaf, Flamethrower, and Water Gun, but all they succeed in is making Annihilape even angrier.

In the midst of the battle, Hatenna spots some of the Mankey looking at a tree on the opposite shore and realizes something. When several of Annihilape's Shadow Balls end up striking the pack of Mankey, they grow angry as well and start attacking Annihilape, much to the group's surprise. While Dot figures that her theory on Annihilape being a guardian deity is incorrect, after all, Hatenna comes up to them and points out what's on the other side of the river: a large supply of Berries at the base of another tree. Figuring the Berries belong to the Mankey, the group realizes that the Mankey had grown angry because they had previously used the vine hanging between the two trees to cross the river and reach their food storage, but are now unable to do so. To fix the situation, the group constructs a new bridge out of straw and logs, which Hatenna helps attach to the tree on one side of the river, while Roy flies to the other side with Kilowattrel and attaches the other end of the bridge of the Berry storage tree. The Mankey, Primeape, and Annihilape excitedly cross the river using the new bridge and reach their food storage once more. Liko and Dot follow them and are feeling happy for them. Liko thanks Hatenna for figuring out what was wrong, and is surprised to notice a brief glow around her Pokémon.

The Mankey pack's excitement rises so high that their stomping starts shaking the ground. As a result, a loose boulder soon falls down from the cliff above and almost hits the pack. While no one is hurt, all Berries have been smashed. This causes the short-tempered Pokémon to fly into a fit of rage and start fighting each other. During the fight, two Primeape from the pack suddenly evolve into Annihilape, surprising the group with the revelation that Annihilape is Primeape's evolved form. The fight grows more violent with two new Annihilape now being present, quickly resulting in all the Mankey being defeated and leaving the three Rage Monkey Pokémon to fight amongst themselves. The group falls back, but they soon notice that Hatenna is approaching the Annihilape, trying to stop the fight. In that midst of the raging fight full of enraged emotions, the overwhelmed Hatenna suddenly evolves into Hattrem. From Dot's Rotom Phone, the group learns that Hattrem will silence anyone with strong emotions, which she then proceeds to do to three Annihilape, defeating them with her newly learned move. The group is impressed at Hattrem's strength, though Dot is also left flabbergasted when she then also heals them right afterwards.

At sunset, the group eats some newly collected Berries alongside the pack, with Dot recording some video of the Annihilape for her report in the process. This experience has left the group excited to meet even more Pokémon, feeling good about their reports. Later, Hattrem is dismayed to find out that she's now too big to ride in Liko's hood anymore, but she gets over it quickly, and the group continues on their way back to Naranja Academy.
