Edna used to own and operate a [[Pokémon breeding]] Center where she cared for and nurtured [[Pokémon Egg]]s alongside her husband {{OBP|Jonathan|AG157}}. Jonathan left the Fuchsia for the city to study medicine, though Edna refused to leave her hometown. Having read Jonathan’s goodbye letter, Edna ran to the station to stop her husband leaving and inform him that she was having their baby. Though she narrowly missed the train service that day and lost her locket after bumping into a stranger on the platform. A year later, Edna received news that Jonathan had passed away in an accident, leaving her heartbroken. Katrina explains that her grandmother refused to believe the letter and has attended the train station everyday awaiting Jonathan's return.

The mysterious light emits from the amulet once more as May and Meowth are then transported back to present time. As she walks outside, the city is now flourishing with citizens as Ash, Max, and Brock rush over to her location. They then rush towards the Pokémon Center as May notices that Edna now has her husband as her companion and has not parted. As the Egg grows ever so brightly, the light begins to dissipate to reveal an {{TP|May|Eevee}}. Meowth peers inside as he then hands May her new Eevee. As Jessie and James are preparing to capture Pikachu, Meowth begins to walk off into the distance with Jessie and James shortly following. As night time befalls our heroes, the tree glistens with the "Lights of Joy". With May's newly forged friendship between Eevee and herself, adventure and battle awaits our heroes just over the horizon.
