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

Yellow tells Pika to look after Kitty while she runs a quick errand. After Yellow races off, Kitty spots a leaf floating past it, and chases after it. The leaf floats over to the edge of the cliff, so Pika chases after Kitty to stop it from falling off the edge. Kitty then chases the leaf and almost runs into a cactus, but Pika runs in front of Kitty, then blows the leaf away. The leaf then flies off in a gust of wind. With Kitty starting to get hungry, Pika decides to feed it a different leaf, causing it to get sick.

Suddenly a herd of Pidgeotto fly past and pick Kitty up in the process. Pika climbs the cliff, and then jumps off and shocks the Pidgeotto. The Pidgeotto drops Kitty, and Pika catches it. They land on the cliff, next to a tree with rosebud flowers. Kitty eats them, recovering from its sickness. Later, Yellow comes back with her arms full of rosebuds. She smiles as she notices Kitty sleeping next to Pika, with a rosebud adorning the former's head.
