Plot
While returning home, Ash stops by the shore to marvel at the Alolan sunset. Rotom wonders when Ash will inform his friends about his own departure, and he replies that tomorrow will be the day. Unexpectedly Mimikyu attempts to lash {{AP|Pikachu}} with a {{m|Shadow Claw}}, though Pikachu evades in time. Pikachu uses {{m|Thunderbolt}} to combat an oncoming {{m|Shadow Ball}}, before swatting its vengeful opponent out to sea with an {{m|Iron Tail}}. Mimikyu attempts to keep itself above the water, but falls in after seeing its own reflection. Pikachu and Ash retrieve the limp Pokémon from the waves. Mimikyu quickly recovers, however its somber retreat leaves Ash and Rotom suspicious of its uncharacteristic behaviour. Ash offers to get it home, though Mimikyu waves at him as it continues to leave. Another unexpected visitor, {{DL|Light trio (anime)|Solgaleo|Nebby}}, greets Ash and Pikachu.
 
At night, Meowth catches up to the still sulky Mimikyu to talk things over. Mimikyu explains that it saw its own face while attacking Pikachu earlier. Meowth remarks that nothing good comes from hatred and suggests that it might be time for a change of direction. Mimikyu takes the words to heart and instantly wipes away its tears as it prepares for a new future. Later, Stufful, Mareanie and Mimikyu are all sleeping soundly. James whispers his apologies to Mareanie for having to leave her, and he gifts her his Z-Ring as a token of his gratitude. James steps outside where Jessie and the others are waiting to leave. The quartet officially thank Bewear for her hospitality while in Alola. Bewear responds with a large hug, filling Jessie and the others with warmth. Now aboard their balloon, the three bid Bewear tossesa themfinal highfarewell intoupon thewhich airit toasks assist(translated theirby flightMeowth) backif they're heading to [[Kanto]]. When they confirm they are, Bewear decides to assist their flight back by using her strength to send them blasting off in that direction.
 
The next morning, Lillie keeps her promise and arrives at Aina's Kitchen. However, she gets enveloped in a bubble before Kiawe, {{an|Lana}}, {{an|Sophocles}} and Mallow happily declare that this is a surprise party. The Pokémon happily enjoy the sweet treats on offer while Mallow and the others are waiting for Ash’s arrival. A loud roar alerts them to something outside – none other than Ash, Pikachu and Rotom riding into view atop of Nebby. Ash apologizes for the delay, admitting that he just returned from an adventure through an [[Ultra Wormhole]]. He adds they visited a strange world, where they helped an [[Ultra Beast]]. Despite Ash's vague explanation, Rotom offers to show everyone the footage. They praise Rotom for always being a huge help, to which Rotom replies that Lusamine said the same thing - as of today, it is an employee of [[Aether Paradise]]. Ash informs his friends of his own news – he will be returning to [[Pallet Town]] before embarking on another journey towards his ultimate goal, to become a [[Pokémon Master]]. Kiawe and the others are taken aback by the surprise confession, though offer their full support.
Before long, it is time for Lillie, Gladion and Lusamine to embark on their venture to find Mohn. Their colleagues and friends wish the family well from the departure port. Lillie promises to keep in contact with her classmates, slightly shying away as she says goodbye to Ash. Gladion hopes to battle Ash again someday, with the pair shaking on it. Rotom calls for everyone to gather, and it promptly immortalizes the moment with a group photo. The ship soon leaves port, with Lillie and her family waving their friends farewell from an open deck. Lillie is spurred into action by her memories of Ash. She runs to the back of the ship to shout out to Ash that she is glad to have met him because he helped her overcome her fear of touching Pokémon. Ash thanks her in return, waving off his dear friend.

Burnet is brought to tears as she hugs Ash, with Kukui joining the embrace. Ash and Pikachu promptly board their plane, peering out of the window as it takes off. Ash's friends, wearing their [[Ultra Guardians]] outfits, soar into view to deliver a wave goodbye and good luck.
 
As the vacation starts, Sophocles heads off with his cousin, [[Molayne]] to [[Mossdeep City]]. Kiawe flies off on {{TP|Kiawe|Charizard}} for his training with Olivia. Later, Lana offers to bring a fish print of {{p|Manaphy}} for Mallow, as she climbs aboard [[Lana's father|her father]]'s boat. Mallow returns to Aina’s Kitchen, where she is greeted by her older brother [[Ulu]]. He presents her with a bouquet of wild flowers he spotted on his return home. [[Abe]] greets Ulu, who affirms that he is returning home for good. {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Shaymin}}, meanwhile, takes an interest in the bouquet and promptly changes into its Sky Form from the [[Gracidea]] pollen. Shaymin rushes outside the restaurant, where it is greeted by other Shaymin. Mallow immediately realizes that yet another friend is leaving. With a final nuzzle, Shaymin soars into the sky to join its friends. Back in Bewear's den, Mareanie and Mimikyu are enjoying their time with Bewear and Stufful.
