Plot
Suddenly, clouds gather and it starts to rain. Confused, Calista fears the "day" has finally arrived. She decides to hold off the gathering and runs back into the tower. Her two Xatu and Ash's group follow her, and shortly after Xatu Two joins them. Meanwhile, Jessie attempts to entertain the crowd with a game of paper, scissors, rock, but this only confuses the audience. Team Rocket soon trail behind. At a weather station under the tower, everyone watches as Calista sends out a Xatu-painted radar to check the weather patterns, but to no avail. Meanwhile, Team Rocket continues downward until Wobbuffet causes them to roll into the station. Xatu Three makes some wing movements and Calista reveals that a human with the ability to predict the weather will appear today. James and the group look at each other, but are none the wiser. Calista is certain of her interpretation because she is a thirteenth-generation Xatu prophetess, and she admits that Xatu Three is getting on in age. Jessie then reveals that she was once a meteorologist for a news program, but was let go because of her inaccurate forecasts. Xatu Three begins sweating, and Jessie urges it to stop looking into her past, and it eventually does when it faints.
 
Determined to solve the strange weather patterns, Calista orders Jessie to help interpret the data, but Jessie is unable to offer any insideinsight. Suddenly the trio of Xatu spring to their feet and begin moving their wings. Calista is horrified and reveals that the long-awaiting "day" of a great flood will arrive tomorrow. She reveals that she and the Xatu's services will come to an end as well. Ash and the others plea for calm. Calista fears that today’stoday's wrongful prediction will jeopardize the trust the people have for the Xatu. Even so, she has faith in her Xatu's fortune-telling skills.
 
She takes to the stage and warns her followers of the great danger. The people rush to the stage and offer their many valuables as tokens of gratitude before fleeing to reach safety. As everyone waits, {{TR|Delibird}} arrives and delivers Team Rocket their overdue bill. As a result, the trio sneaks over and tries to swipe one of the valuable items, but Ash catches them before they could do anything. Team Rocket threatens Delibird, which prompts it to assist them. Delibird showers everyone with explosive {{m|Present}}s. James then sends out {{TP|James|Weezing}} to use {{m|Smokescreen}} while Delibird drops in a few more presents. Weezing then cuts the Smokescreen. Team Rocket are surprised to see that the Xatu are still there, but Calista explains that the Xatu were able to predict where to move to avoid being damaged. Delibird offers up another round of Presents, but this time they heal the Xatu completely. Just before Team Rocket can do anything else, Delibird drops a Present next to them and then leaves before it sends Team Rocket off into the sky.
