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

At Lysandre Café, Lysandre introduces himself to Y, Trevor, Shauna, and Tierno. He then asks to have Trevor's Holo Caster so that he can repair it for him, Y then sees her favorite movie playing on TV and watches it with Froakie. Trevor wants to ask Lysandre if he was at Vaniville Town when Xerneas and Yveltal attacked the town, because a shadow in one of Viola's photos looks like him. However, Trevor is too scared and can't get the words out. Then, Lysandre tells Trevor that he saw him looking at pictures and that he would like to see them. Trevor tries to escape with Shauna and Tierno and tries to get Y's attention, but Trevor, Shauna, and Tierno are surrounded by Lysandre's Pyroar, Gyarados, and Mienfoo.

Meanwhile, at Professor Sycamore's Lab, X continues to battle Professor Sycamore]. Professor Sycamore's Charmander is easily defeating Chespin due to X not giving commands. Charmander has nearly knocked out Chespin when Professor Sycamore tells X that if Chespin loses, it's all his fault. Chespin then gets back up to continue battling and dodges Charmander's Ember attack. X gets so heated up, that he commands Chespin to go behind Charmander and use Rollout. However, Chespin faints X and calls him Marisso. This surprises Sycamore and is even more surprised after X asks for the Charmander, however X senses that Y and the others are in danger.

Back at Lysandre Café, Y notices that Trevor and the others are surrounded, but the Pokémon Champion Diantha sees them in danger and helps them. Trevor then runs with the others to the boys bathroom while Diantha Mega Evolves her Gardevoir and tells Lysandre that if he had more time, he would have attacked the children. After Lysandre talks about Diantha's first movie role, Xerosic contacts him to say he found Xerneas as a tree and he needs to come right now. Lysandre leaves the café and says that he fixed the Holo Caster. Y then comes out of the bathroom to get the Holo Caster and to talk to Diantha, however Diacntha's fans find her thanks to Y's shouting so they decide to leave through the back door. After leaving the café Trevor faints because of seeing Mega Gardevoir, meanwhile Lysandre tells his Gyarados that it can Mega Evolve to make it feel better. The group then find X, who is riding on a Gogoat.
