After a {{p|Fletchling}} flies into a house, a woman, [[Grace (Kalos)|Grace]], asks Fletchling to wake her daughter {{an|Serena}} up after she failed the first time. Fletchling obediently flies up to Serena's bedroom and {{m|peck}}s Grace's daughter awake, much to Serena's annoyance. Despite the prospect of training with {{p|Rhyhorn}} later for Rhyhorn racing, Serena feels today will be interesting.
Meanwhile, {{Ash}} arrives in the [[Kalos]] region on a plane with [[Alexa]], anticipating a new adventure. As Ash and {{AP|Pikachu}} leave the plane, Ash sees two {{p|Spritzee}} flying above and trips on the steps, landing heavily on the ground. Ash is dismayed to discover that Alexa's [[Viola|sister's]] Gym is not in [[Lumiose City]], but is in [[Santalune City]] instead. While Alexa makes a phone call to her sister, Ash decides to look around for new Pokémon, when suddenly {{p|Blaziken|a mysterious Pokémon}} appears on the top of the airport traffic control tower and jumps over Ash's head. Ash heads to the lobby and runs to Alexa's {{p|Helioptile}}, telling Alexa about the amazing Pokémon he saw, to which Alexa promises that he will soon see many more amazing Pokémon. Although Alexa's sister is still away from the Santalune Gym, Alexa cheers Ash up by suggesting that he challenge the Gym in Lumiose City instead. Taking him to a map, she explains that [[Lumiose Gym]] is housed inside [[Prism Tower]] which is in the centre of the city. Ash gets very excited, and Alexa then tells Ash they'll need to go their separate ways now. Ash thanks her for all her help recently, and Alexa in turn thanks him for the fun they've had on their recent travels together. With that, Ash departs and Alexa comments on his energy and wishes him luck in his new adventure.
After seeing many Pokémon in Lumiose City, some familiar and some new to him, Ash finds Prism Tower, which houses the Lumiose Gym. Watched by {{an|Clemont|a boy}} and {{an|Bonnie|his younger sister}}, Ash walks inside and requests a Gym battle, but [[Clembot|a robotic voice]] asks him how many badges he currently has. Unbeknownst to Ash, the Lumiose Gym has a strict requirement that only Trainers with four or more Gym Badges may challenge the Gym Leader. Since Ash has no Badges, Ash and Pikachu are hit with an electric shock and are dropped through a trapdoor to the exit. The two children from before see him falling out of the tower and they attempt to rescue Ash and his Pikachu. The boy throws his [[bag|backpack]] below Ash, which immediately produces a large airbag-like contraption to cushion Ash's fall. The little girl catches Pikachu and falls over herself. After the boy helps Ash to his feet, the girl excites herself over how adorable Pikachu is and hugs him tightly, causing Pikachu to shock her in protest. As the scene is occurring, a {{AP|Froakie}} is watching them from a building. Recovering quickly from the shock, the girl apologizes to Pikachu after her brother chides her for not considering Pikachu's feelings. Introducing himself to the boy and the girl, Ash tells them how he traveled here from the Kanto region so he could participate in the Kalos League. The three of them head to a Pokémon battlefield in Lumiose City, where the boy and the girl introduce themselves as {{an|Clemont}} and {{an|Bonnie}}. Ash challenges Clemont to a Pokémon battle, to which Clemont accepts after encouragement from Bonnie.
