Synopsis

The black background is lit up as the pendant floats down between Liko's hands and turns into Terapagos. The camera zooms across the sea before the series logo appears in front of the sunset.

Young Liko speaks as she walks with her parents through a market when the background turns gray. On a blue background, Liko's look of uncertainty is lifted. As she lifts her pendant up to the blue moon while sitting on the rooftop, green leaves of energy surround her and disappear to show Liko, Sprigatito, Hatenna, and Terapagos enjoying the breeze outside the Brave Olivine's observation room together. Young Roy is amazed at the ancient adventurer story his grandpa shows him. On a dirt road, a dirtied Roy is wearing the Rising Volt Tacklers' flag as a cape while he gazes at his Ancient Poké Ball before confidently raising it up to the sky. A circle of flames surrounds him and disappears to show Roy, Fuecoco, and Wattrel watching the sunset on the Brave Olivine's wing deck together. Transitions with lines showing off the Rising Volt Tacklers and their Pokémon occur, starting with Friede and Charizard, Orla and Metagross/Elekid, Mollie and Chansey, Dot and Quaxly, Murdock and Rockruff/Alcremie, Ludlow and Quagsire, ending with Captain Pikachu and Friede at the wheel in the captain's deck.

The Brave Olivine rises from the clouds, with Liko and Roy on the front, Dot, Orla, Mollie, Murdock, and Ludlow outside the observation deck, and the Black Rayquaza flying next to the ship. Terapagos runs along Rayquaza's back, followed by Liko, Roy, Dot, Murdock, and Ludlow, with Orla and Mollie riding on Metagross. As Amethio trains Ceruledge and Corviknight at the Explorers' base, he starts to feel exhausted as Hamber and Dusknoir oversee his progress.

Liko is next to Diana and Lucca as she holds Terapagos, who releases light from its shell. Projections of Arboliva, Galarian Moltres, Lapras, Kleavor, Entei, and Rayquaza appear, ending with Lucius as the camera zooms into his blue eye. At sunset, Sprigatito, Terapagos, and Liko walk towards Lucius overlooking the sea on a cliff. The next shots are off the Explorer admins; Sango on Glalie's head, Onyx walking with Garganacl, and Agate doing a kung fu pose with Medicham. Roy wakes up Liko from her dream. Scenes show of Zirc and Onia tending to Rhydon and Golduck, Spinel with Umbreon in front of Gibeon's monolith, and someone charging up a Tera Orb. As the Rising Volt Tacklers look to the sky, Lucius's belt is shown next to his memoirs. Terapagos is in its Terastal form as someone reaches for it.

The final shot shows the Rising Volt Tacklers' hands doing their trademark handshake below the bright sun.

Japanese English
さぁ 進め 雲つきぬけ

言えなかったあの言葉を
思い出しては 潜った
不確かに泳いでいく
雲かき分け 青い空へ

いつかさ 振り返んだ
あの真っ赤な夕焼けを
一切合切 焼き付けて

届かない 世界の真理も
あの子の 気持ちも
わからないままでいい
虹色になれ

さぁ 進め 雲つきぬけ
つまずいて ふらついて
ふんばって もっと遠くへ
さぁ 走れ 僕の未来へ

長い長い旅路 その果てに
君を思い出す
いつか 握手かわして
笑おう

光りだした
虹の先で
夢見つけた
Come on, break through the clouds ahead

When I remember the words I couldn't say
I dove down to hide myself
Swimming my way through in uncertainty
I cut through the clouds and head for the blue sky

One day, I'll look back
At that fiery red sunset
And burn it all into memory

Even if I can't reach the truth of the world
Or the feelings of that girl
It's okay to not understand
Just shine like a rainbow

Come on, break through the clouds ahead
Even if we stumble and stagger
Just hold on and go farther
Come on, run on to my future

At the end of this long, long journey
I'll remember you
One day, we'll shake hands
And laugh

A light appeared
At the end of the rainbow
And I found my dream

太陽で照りついた
焼けるようなコンクリート
機能性重視スニーカーで
飛行船みたいに空を飛ぶ

いつかさ ふざけあって
ふたり 歌った 夢の歌
ずっとポケットに入れたまま

さぁ 歌え 星の先へ
嬉しくて 悲しくて
何千回 泣いた日々を
さぁ 誇れ 虹の先で
話したいことがあるんだ

つまづいて ふらついて
ふんばって もっと遠くへ
さぁ 走れ 僕の未来へ
まだまだ 遠くまで
さぁ 夢の 続きを見て

きっといつか 大事にしてきた
虹の花が咲く
ずっと 失くさないように
歩こう

Come on, break through the clouds ahead

When I remember the words I couldn't say
I dove down to hide myself
Swimming my way through in uncertainty
I cut through the clouds and head for the blue sky

One day, I'll look back
At that fiery red sunset
And burn it all into memory

Even if I can't reach the truth of the world
Or the feelings of that girl
It's okay to not understand
Just shine like a rainbow

Come on, break through the clouds ahead
Even if we stumble and stagger
Just hold on and go farther
Come on, run on to my future

At the end of this long, long journey
I'll remember you
One day, we'll shake hands
And laugh

The sun beats down
On the burning concrete
Wearing my functional sneakers
I skip through the air like a blimp

One day, we would joke around
And sing our dream song together
Having kept it in my pocket all this time

Come on, sing to the stars beyond
When I've been happy and when I've been sad
In the days that I cried thousands of times
Come on, be proud at the end of the rainbow
I have something to tell you

(Hello, hello)
The sound of the clock
(Hello, hello)
Stop the video
(Hello, hello)
Brush those teeth
(Hello, hello)
Went to sleep
(Hello, hello)
How are you doing?
(Hello, hello)
I hope you're well
(Hello, hello)
With your song
Let's go together

Come on, break through the clouds ahead
Even if we stumble and stagger
Just hold on and go farther
Come on, run to my future
There's still a long way to go
Come on, let's see the rest of our dream

One day, the rainbow flower
That we've cherished so much will bloom
So let's walk
So that we never lose it

A light appeared at the end of the rainbow
And I found my dream
