==Plot==
On its way from [[Eterna City]] to [[Celestic Town]], a police plane carrying the [[Timespace orbs|Adamant Orb]] is attacked by a horde of {{p|Golbat}} as well as a {{TP|Saturn|Toxicroak}}. The attack is led by [[Saturn]] of [[Team Galactic]] who notes that everything is going perfectly to plan.
 
At the Celestic Town [[Pokémon Center]], {{an|Brock}} and {{an|Dawn}} are packing to head out while {{Ash}} is perfecting a technique to counter [[Fantina]]'s {{m|Hypnosis}} based on Dawn's [[Contest Battle]] [[DP095|the previous day]]. However, the {{pkmn|training}} is put on hold when news soon breaks that the Adamant Orb was successfully stolen by [[Team Galactic]], and the gang learns that the Adamant Orb was on its way to the [[Celestic Town Historical Research Center]], which is currently studying the Adamant Orb's counterpart, the [[Timespace orbs|Lustrous Orb]]. They also learn that [[Cynthia]] is coming to Celestic Town, and decide to head to the Research Center to see her. Just then [[Nurse Joy]] arrives and Brock begins to hit on her; however, after a few seconds Brock gets the feeling that something is wrong and realizes that {{TP|Brock|Croagunk}} didn't stop his misguided romantic attempts, instead choosing to stare out the window, a fact which gives Brock slight alarm.
 
Outside the Pokémon Center, [[Jessie]], [[James]] and {{MTR}} plot to steal the [[Timespace orbs|Lustrous Orb]] before Team Galactic can.
 
At the Research Center, {{ashfr|the gang}} meets up with Cynthia, who introduces them to her grandmother, [[Professor Carolina]], head of the Celestic Town Historical Research Center. On a nearby rooftop, [[Saturn]] recognizes Ash and co. as the group that [[DP069|interfered]] with their plan to steal the meteorites from [[Veilstone City]], and warns [[Mars]] about them. [[Cyrus]], a world-famous businessman who is responsible for many of the buildings and libraries throughout [[Sinnoh]], approaches the Research Center while Mars and Saturn prepare their attack. As Croagunk once again stares off into space instead of stopping Brock from hitting on Cynthia, Ash and Dawn also take note of Croagunk's strange behavior. {{TRT}} disguise themselves as police officers in order to gain entry into the Research Center.
==Major events==

* [[Team Galactic]] steals the [[Timespace orbs|Adamant Orb]].
* {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} meet [[Cynthia]] again.

* [[Surely Tomorrow]] replaced [[Message of the Wind]] as the [[List of Japanese ending themes|Japanese ending theme]].
* This episode marks exactly 60 episodes since [[Team Galactic]]'s first anime appearance. In it, however, they hired [[Jessie]], [[James]], and {{MTR}} to nab the [[Timespace orbs|Adamant Orb]] from [[Eterna City]]. This time around, the group itself nabbed both it and the [[Timespace orbs|Lustrous Orb]] from [[Celestic Town]], which lies on the opposite side of [[Mt. Coronet]] and {{rt|211|Sinnoh}} from Eterna.
* It is revealed in this episode that [[Brock's Croagunk]] is able to sense when [[Saturn's Toxicroak]] is nearby, possibly an allusion to its {{a|Anticipation}} Ability.
** Due to this, it is the first time Croagunk does not stop him from flirting a girl.
