49 bytes removed, 24 March
For many years, Meloetta resided in the village of the forest people, eventually befriending Ridley as he grew up. However, it was eventually attacked and captured by {{TRT}}. Ridley tried to stop them, but before he could do so, Team Rocket escaped in [[Dr. Zager]]'s helicopter. Meloetta managed to escape from Team Rocket's captivity by disappearing, forcing the trio to begin searching for it.
Team Rocket's first attempt to re-capturerecapture it on-screenonscreen was in [[Virbank City]] in the episode ''[[BW082|An Epic Defense Force!]]''. It was able to elude them but somehow made its way into the [[Pokéstar Studios]] studios where {{Ash}} had unknowingly encountered it. After he saved it from a collapse of some tools it stayed close behind him, and started to follow him, first to the [[Virbank Gym]].

It reappeared inIn ''[[BW083|Rocking the Virbank Gym! Part 1]]'' and ''[[BW084|Rocking the Virbank Gym! Part 2]]'', where itMeloetta watched Ash's battle against [[Roxie]] and was visibly pleased to see him win.
Meloetta appeared again inIn ''[[BW085|All for the Love of Meloetta!]]'', where itMeloetta was again pursued and attacked by Team Rocket. Jessie had {{TP|Jessie|Woobat}} attack it with {{m|Air Slash}}, and James had {{TP|James|Yamask}} and {{m|Shadow Ball}}, respectively. {{MTR}} then tried to catch it in an electric net but once again, Meloetta escaped by invisibility. However, it still managed to get injured in the process and wandered into the street in a daze, and almost got run over by [[Cynthia]]'s car. Although Ash had only seen it briefly before, he was able to recognize it and Cynthia applied [[Potion]] to its wounds. Then they attempted to get its fever down with a bag of ice they had previously smashed from a nearby lake. While {{an|Iris}} and {{an|Cilan}} searched for an [[Oran Berry]] for it, Ash kept watch.
After a little bit, {{AP|Oshawott}} came out of his [[Poké Ball]] sensing Meloetta's presence and instantly fell in love with it. Meloetta recovered a bit after eating an Oran Berry {{TP|Iris|Emolga}} brought. During this time both Emolga and Oshawott were arguing with each other and Meloetta began to sing in order to calm them down. Afterwards, it disappeared once more but had followed Ash and the others to Cynthia's jet.
In [[BW086|the following episode]], Meloetta appeared once again while [[Jervis]] was taking them to Cynthia's villa. Although it was reluctant to show itself to {{an|Dawn}} at first, it eventually did with encouragement from Ash. Immediately, [[Dawn's Piplup]] fell in love with it too. This angered Oshawott, and caused it and Piplup to constantly fight over Meloetta, and get angry when it chose one over the other.
