Brock is initially disappointed, but he informs Janina that she has to focus on building up her Pokemon’s natural strengths. Janina is encouraged by the advice, admitting that Jasmine said something similar before. Ash is suddenly reminded about Jasmine and asks where she might be, and Janina explains that Jasmine has been up to something at the [[Glitter Lighthouse|Shining Lighthouse]], which is why she's busy all the time. Ash decides they should go check it out.
They get to the pier, and spot two lighthouses. Brock reads his guidebook which reveals that the smaller lighthouse is the oldest of the pair, and uponis known as the Shining Lighthouse. Upon reaching the top, they find Jasmine, her grandfather {{OBP|Myron|EP208}}, and an {{p|Ampharos}} that seems to be ill.

Myron explains that this [[Amphy|Ampharos]] is the source of light source for the lighthouse because its tail creates quite a glow. The Shining Lighthouse used to be the main lighthouse, but anotheran electric lighthouse tookhas since taken over. He says that he ordered a cure from someonethe pharmacy atin [[Cianwood City]], but neither he nor Jasmine has any time to get it. Ash tells them that he'll go get the medicine.
