The episode begins with {{Ash}}, {{AP|Pikachu}} and {{Rotom}} watching {{an|Mallow}} and {{TP|Mallow|Bounsweet}} practice together, confused at what the two are doing. Bounsweet is trying to balance a plate of stacked pancakes on its head without letting it fall over, and Mallow quiets Ash, saying she is concentrating. When Bounsweet successfully finishes its practice, Mallow explains that they are practicing for the upcoming annual [[Pokémon Pancake Race]], and suggests that Ash join up as well, since the event is a lot of fun and akin to a festival.
 
Later, while Ash is getting supplies with [[{{an|Professor Kukui]]}}, they stop by a café for lunch. Kukui greets the waitress, [[Nina]], remarking that the time for Pancake Race has arrived again after seeing a poster for the event. Ash recognizes Nina as the girl featured on the poster, and Nina introduces her [[Regional variant|Alolan]] {{p|Raichu}} to them. Kukui reveals that Nina and Raichu were the champions of the previous race. As Ash marvels Raichu's ability to float, Rotom explains Raichu's Alolan variant to him, pointing out that Alolan Raichu is also a {{t|Psychic}} Pokémon who uses its mind to manipulate electricity and levitate. As Nina and Raichu serve Ash's group two stacks of pancakes, Nina explains that the race's objective is to complete the course without dropping any of the stacked pancakes as failure to do so results in elimination. Ash asks Pikachu to join the race with him and it agrees, but quickly develops a rivalry with Raichu after Raichu snubs it.
 
Following lunch, Ash practices with Pikachu while assisted by Nina and her Raichu demonstrating. Nearby, {{TRT}} are relaxing on the beach when they see Nina's Raichu, prompting [[James]] to look up its information. While Raichu easily finishes the practice run, Pikachu is worn out from its efforts, but manages to keep its stack intact. As Nina and Ash discuss the upcoming race, the Team Rocket trio overhear this and recognize Nina and the race from a copy of the publicity poster they picked up. After learning that the winner of the race gets a year's supply of unlimited Alolan pancakes, [[Jessie]] becomes determined to enter and win.
