==SynopsisBlurb==
<!-- Detailed synopsis goes herehttp://www. pokemon.com/us/tv-episodes/season-13/episode-7-13_07-piplup-up-and-away/-->
<i>Our heroes continue toward Sunyshore City and Ash's next Sinnoh Gym battle. On the way there, some special training with Gible results in several wayward Draco Meteor attempts, which keep landing on Piplup's head! When it appears that neither Ash nor Dawn seems to care about the dejected Piplup, the Pokémon quietly decides to depart.
 
That's when Team Rocket (disguised as "The Pokémon Rescue Corps") sees an opportunity. They befriend Piplup and promise to talk to Ash and Dawn, righting the wrong. But really they just want Piplup to help bring Pikachu to them so they can catch it!
 
Having tricked Piplup into luring Pikachu into a trap, Team Rocket ensnares both Piplup and Pikachu. When our heroes find the two Pokémon trapped in Team Rocket's clutches, a fierce battle ensues. Piplup's anger at the whole situation enables it to use a new move—Hydro Pump, sending Team Rocket blasting off again!
 
After apologizing to Piplup for any bad feelings and vowing to stay together from now on, our heroes once again resume their journey to Sunyshore City.</i>
 
==Plot==
On a clear star-filled night, {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} 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.
