Synopsis
==Synopsis==
<!-- Detailed synopsis goes here. -->
On a clear star-filled night, {{Ash}} and {{ashfr|his friends}} watch the sky as [[Marian]] shows up, mentioning that there is a rare meteor shower. Everyone is awed by the show, when suddenly a meteor falls straight at the group. {{TP|Dawn|Piplup}} confidently jumps ahead and uses {{m|Whirlpool}} to stop the meteor and create a dazzling sparkle. When the light clears, they suddenly appear in a stadium filled with spectators, as that appeal gave {{an|Dawn}} the win for the Grand Festival. Everyone cheers for Dawn as she thanks Piplup. Suddenly, {{AP|Gible}} appears and fires {{m|Draco Meteor}}, which comes down and hits Piplup. The attack appears to send Piplup flying, but the scene changes to show Piplup waking up in the middle of the night, the whole thing being a dream. Piplup goes back to sleep.
 
The next day, Ash decides to {{pkmn|training|train}}, knowing that his final [[badge]] and the league is closing in. He decides to put time into improving Gible's faulty Draco Meteor. When he brings Gible out, it immediately sprints over to bite on a nearby boulder. Ash tries to pull Gible off, which results in his {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} biting on his head instead.
Gible starts practicing Draco Meteor, but every attempt continues to fail and hit Piplup, with Ash repeatedly apologizing to Dawn's [[starter Pokémon]]. After disrupting Piplup from smelling flowers, getting water from a stream and simply heaving the Penguin Pokémon everywhere, Piplup runs over to Gible and scolds it. When Gible responds by latching onto Piplup's head, the {{t|Water}} Pokémon unleashes his anger on Gible with Whirlpool and {{m|BubbleBeam}} attacks. Gible's lack of response only infuriates Piplup more as Ash and Dawn try to calm the chaos.
 
Piplup runs towards Dawn, imagining her and Ash scolding Gible and demanding it to apologize, Dawn caring only for Piplup. Instead, Piplup winds up hugging {{AP|Pikachu}}. Pikachu comforts Piplup briefly before running over to Ash. Piplup notices that nobody is angry towards Gible, only supporting it and encouraging it to work harder to improve. This devastates Piplup, especially when Dawn says that Gible didn't do intentional harm. Crushed, Piplup walks away, nobody noticing him. Nearby, [[Team Rocket]]{{TRT}} watches and decides to take advantage of it.
 
Piplup walks into the forest and takes a break. Hearing a nearby bush rustle, Piplup thinks its Dawn, fantasizing that she has taken Piplup's side. When he jumps into the bush, he runs into an angry {{p|Rhyperior}}, immediately facing a {{m|Flash Cannon}} attack, forcing him to run away. Piplup runs into the Team Rocket Trio ([[Jessie]], [[James]] and {{MTR}}), who are disguised as members as the Pokémon Rescue Group, a team that helps solve feuds between {{pkmn|Trainer}}s and Pokémon, as well as helping Pokémon that have been abandoned by their trainers.
