[[Risa]] finishes her day of school and heads over to the hospital to see her brother {{OBP|Rick|M21}}, who is recovering from a broken leg. She gifts Rick a bag of clothes and asks how his recovery is going. Rick shakes his leg around to show that he is doing fine, but accidentally knocks it into the hospital table. He then asks Risa about her running, but she quickly dismisses his concerns and tells him to worry about himself. Rick quickly changes the conversation to the upcoming [[Wind Festival]] in [[Fula City]] and asks Risa for a favor. However, Risa is unimpressed. Risa returns home late at night and exhausted before laying down on her bed. She holds up a [[{{i|Poké Ball]]}} and examines it for a moment, then reminisces about Rick's request – that she go to the Wind Festival to {{pkmn2|caught|catch}} him a {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}. Rick gifts Risa a set of red sunglasses and she instantly agrees, despite her lack of experience.
The following day, [[Margo]] wakes up and opens her French doors to a picturesque view overlooking Fula City as fireworks usher in the beginning of the Wind Festival. Margo then sees [[Mayor Oliver|her father]] leave for work and waves him goodbye. Meanwhile, {{OBP|Ash Ketchum|M20}} with his partner {{OBP|Ash's Pikachu|M20|Pikachu}} ride into the heart of the city aboard a [[Transportation in the Pokémon world|tram]]. The pair get off and explore some of the city’s local eateries, while Risa walks nearby. [[Harriet]] walks off in a huff after being scared by a {{p|Sunflora}} and [[Toren]] drops his papers as he receives an important phone call. [[Kellie]] is excited and manages to trip, luckily her uncle [[Callahan]] and [[Mia|her mother]] are close by.
