Tate and Liza are watching the stars with Molayne while wearing their special outfits for the star festival. While they watch, they practice the song they're going to sing for the festival. Since Molayne is teaching them about the stars, they agree to teach him the song.
While preparing for their dance practice in the forest, Tate and Liza notice something shining in the distance. They go to investigate and find a Jirachi sleeping near a lake. Archie appears and tells them about Jirachi's ability to grant wishes, and he asks them to keep it a secret so people don't get greedy for Jirachi's power. They agree without hesitation. Then, they leave the forest. In the park, they run into Anabel and Nanu, who have been assigned to protect Tate and Liza so that nothing happens to them before the star festival. Anabel explains that Ultra Wormholes have been opening more frequently, and it's better to be safe than sorry. Days later, Liza is practicing her dance by herself, with Anabel watching. Anabel commends her for improving, but just as they're about to go meet up with Tate and Nanu, an Ultra Wormhole opens up and pulls Liza in. Anabel dives in after her, and the wormhole closes before their Pokémon can follow.
Tate and Nanu arrive at the meeting point and find Liza's Lunatone and Anabel's Snorlax, but they can't find Liza or Anabel anywhere. Archie appears, and they fill him in on the situation. Archie says he'll help them search, noting that it's strange for the Trainer to be missing and not their Pokémon. Nanu speculates that they've been sent to the other side of an Ultra Wormhole, so they call Lusamine and the Aether Foundation to investigate. Lusamine confirms that there's evidence of an Ultra Wormhole having appeared in the area, but she doesn't know where it could have sent them. It's too dangerous to just open up Ultra Wormholes randomly and hope to find them, and Tate despairs that he'll never see his sister again. Archie tells Tate not to despair and heads off with him to find Jirachi.
Meanwhile, Liza and Anabel find themselves in a place similar to Pasio, but there are no signs of people anywhere. Liza is scared, but Anabel promises to protect her. Suddenly, a Celesteela appears. Fortunately, it doesn't seem hostile, though Anabel doesn't know why it would be in a place like this. A hostile Nihilego appears, but the Celesteela fights it off. Liza thanks it for the help, but it doesn't react. Anabel suspects that all the Ultra Beasts here have been pulled here from their own worlds, so there might be an Ultra Wormhole here that leads to somewhere else.
Back on Pasio, Tate and Archie arrive at the lake where Jirachi is sleeping. Archie tells Tate that there's a legend that says Jirachi will awaken from its sleep if you sing to it with a pure voice, and it will grant your wish. He thinks that if Tate sincerely wants to find his sister, Jirachi will respond and grant his wish. Tate thanks Archie for this chance, and he sings the song that he was practicing with Liza. Jirachi wakes up, and Tate wishes for Liza and Anabel to come back to Pasio.
In the strange world, Anabel and Celesteela follow Liza, who can hear Tate singing and is running towards the source. They find an Ultra Wormhole in the middle of a forest, which Liza says she can hear Tate singing through. However, the wormhole is high above the ground, higher than they can reach. So, Anabel asks Celesteela to fly them up to the Ultra Wormhole. With a little help from Liza, Celesteela understands the message, and Liza and Anabel grab on to Celesteela and fly through the wormhole.
Tate, Archie, and Jirachi are in the forest on Pasio, where an Ultra Wormhole has opened up. As Tate begs for his sister to come back, Liza, Anabel, and Celesteela suddenly arrive through the wormhole. Tate greets them joyfully, and Liza greets him with equal enthusiasm. Tate asks if she's OK, and she says she's fine because Anabel and Celesteela protected her. Tate thanks Jirachi for its help, and he explains to Liza and Anabel what happened. Archie is happy that Tate and Liza have been reunited, so he leaves the rest to Anabel.
Days later, at the star festival, Molayne meets up with Tate and Liza and apologizes for not being able to help them. They tell him not to worry, and introduce him to their new friends Jirachi and Celesteela. Tate and Liza perform their song and dance for everyone, alongside Molayne and their new partners. Archie and Shelly observe that Jirachi has met a nice Trainer, and Archie asks her what she's wishing for. Shelly says it's probably the same as him. Archie laughs, and thinks to himself that his wish is for people and Pokémon to keep laughing together like this when Tate and Liza are all grown up, and even long after that.

Wish upon a Star
- Pokémon Center
|Tate||I hope everyone's wishes come true!|
|Tate||Have you decided what you're wishing for at the star festival, Liza?|
|Liza||Yup! I won't tell you, though! Have you decided, Tate?|
|Tate||I don't need to make a wish—mine's already come true!|
- A Song for the Stars
|Molayne||Are those the costumes for the star festival? They suit both of you.|
|Liza||Hehe, thanks Molayne!|
|Tate||We have to make the star festival a success for all the people looking forward to it.|
|Molayne||Haha, that's promising to hear! |
But if so, are you sure you should be leisurely watching the stars with me? Are you not busy?
|Tate||Not at all! This is very important, too!|
|Liza||We used to help out at the Mossdeep Space Center in Hoenn.|
|Tate||We were already curious about space and stars from before, but...|
|Liza||We just thought we should study more for the star festival!|
|Molayne||OK! If that's the case, let's get the lesson started!|
|Tate||When you look up at the sky and wish, the stars will quietly shine. ♪|
|Liza||If you wish upon the stars, tomorrow shines bright. ♪|
|Molayne||Oh, what's that song?|
|Liza||It's the song we're gonna sing at the star festival!|
|Tate||We're practicing it every day so we can sing it while dancing!|
|Molayne||I see...it's very nice! Can I hear the rest?|
You two can be the teachers this time, and help me learn this song!
|Liza||I'm gonna sing it slowly, OK? One, two...|
- Archie's Wish
|Liza||This place should work, right?|
|Tate||Yup! Shall we start our dance practice?|
|Liza||Is something there?|
|Tate||Is that a Pokémon?|
|???||You found it, huh.|
|Archie||This Pokémon's name is Jirachi.|
it wakes up from its long sleep, it can make any wish come true.
|Liza||What an amazing Pokémon!|
|Archie||Yeah... But as you can see, it's still asleep right now.|
Could we keep this a secret and just leave it alone?
If word gets out about Jirachi, people will show up by the boatload to try n' use its power...
People's greed knows no bounds. Once one wish comes true, there'll be another wish they want to make.
Pokémon should never suffer because of human egos...
|Tate||OK! We got it, Archie!|
We won't tell anyone about Jirachi!
|Liza||It wouldn't be nice to interrupt Jirachi's nap!|
|Archie||Right then. Thanks for understandin'.|
How nice would it be if everyone had a kind heart like them...
|Anabel||Here you are, you two.|
|Nanu||We were looking for you, you know? We have to protect you kids.|
|Anabel||Yes. We cannot have anything happen to the stars of the star festival.|
We will stay with you until the star festival ends.
|Nanu||Sorry to be a bother.|
I did ask if we really needed to protect you two.
Especially because I heard you two were skilled Trainers. Even stronger when together.
|Anabel||Well, we did hear Ultra Wormholes are opening more actively recently...|
It is better than being one step behind when something happens.
|Anabel||An Ultra Wormhole is just like a door between here and another world.|
Both of you might have seen Ultra Beasts, the Pokémon from other worlds, on Pasio.
|Liza||Yup, I know them! Those Pokémon that look a bit different from others!|
|Tate||We saw Looker searching for them before.|
|Nanu||Speaking of...where is Looker?|
|Anabel||Apparently he's following a case with head detective Emma.|
|Nanu||I see...I guess they're busy too.|
|Anabel||You improved quite significantly. Your dancing is basically perfect, no?|
|Liza||Hehe! I guess we'll have to see if I can synchronize well with Tate!|
|Anabel||That shouldn't be a problem for you two.|
It's almost time to meet up with Tate and Nanu—
|Liza||Huh?! Wh-what is—|
- Far, Far Away
|Tate||I can't find them anywhere!|
|Archie||Is that the little scamp from Mossdeep?|
|Arche||Hey, what's going on?|
|Tate||Archie! Have you seen Liza?|
|Archie||No, I haven't...what's happening?|
|Tate||I can't find Liza anywhere, and I can't get in touch with her!|
|Nanu||Anabel should have been with her, but I can't get in touch with her either.|
Only their partner Pokémon were at the meeting point.
|Archie||This is serious...|
|Tate||What should I do, Archie...?|
|Archie||Cheer up, kiddo! I'll help you search, too! It's gonna be all right!|
|Archie||This is an odd situation. I have a million guesses about what bad guys would go after the Pokémon, but...|
Real weird for the Trainer to be missing and the Pokémon to be left behind.
|Nanu||Maybe they went to the other side of an Ultra Wormhole...|
|Archie||Whoa, whoa! Are you saying the kid and that lady cop have been sent to another world?!|
|Nanu||I'm saying maybe. It would explain why I can't contact her.|
If there's a chance that Ultra Wormholes are involved, we need to talk to the expert...
|Lusamine||We can definitely see traces that an Ultra Wormhole appeared here.|
And they're very recent...
|Tate||So that means...|
|Archie||Hey! How can we save those two?!|
|Lusamine||At this stage, we don't have enough clues to help us locate the world that they were sent to.|
|Lillie||This is a different situation from when you and Mr. Guzma jumped into the Ultra Wormhole on Alola, right?|
Necrozma and Lunala can open Ultra Wormholes on their own, but...
We cannot just open Ultra Wormholes one by one without any idea of where Liza and Anabel are.
We don't know what would happen...or what kind of Ultra Beasts there would be.
We can't expose Pasio to danger.
|Tate||So that means...I'll never see Liza again?|
|Lusamine||... ... ...|
|Archie||Don't be givin' up now, Tate! We've still got an option.|
|Archie||Come with me!|
|Lusamine||Where are you—|
|Archie||From here on out, this is between me and Tate—and it's top secret!|
|Anabel||There's no sign of people at all...|
This looks similar to Pasio, but it seems to be a completely different world.
|Liza||I'm scared, Anabel...|
|Anabel||Don't worry. I'll protect you no matter what happens, Liza!|
(Having said that… It's going to be very hard to do that in the current situation, without our Pokémon...)
(But on Pasio, there are Pokémon with the power to open Ultra Wormholes!)
(If only there was some way for us to let them know our location...)
|Anabel||Ah! An Ultra Beast!|
- No Matter the Distance
|Anabel||... ... ...|
...Good, it's not hostile towards us.
|Liza||And you are...?|
|Anabel||This Pokémon's name is UB-04—no, actually, it's called Celesteela.|
|Anabel||This Ultra Beast shouldn't be in a place like this, based on recent research.|
|Liza||Were you sad because you were all alone?|
|Anabel||No reaction at all...|
|Anabel||Another Ultra Beast?!|
Liza, be careful! This one looks hostile!
|Liza||Thank you, Celesteela! You're so strong!|
|Anabel||Haha... Very hard to read what it's thinking, as expected from a Pokémon from another world.|
Although, something is off. Same for those Ultra Beasts and Celesteela...
They're in a completely different place from where they usually live.
Maybe they wandered in here, just like us...
|Liza||Does that mean...|
|Anabel||Yes. There might be an Ultra Wormhole that leads to somewhere else.|
|Archie||There's a legend of Jirachi that goes like this:|
Jirachi will awaken from its sleep of a thousand years if you sing to it in a voice of purity.
It is said to make true any wish that people desire.
Tate...if you really want to find Liza, I think Jirachi will respond.
|Tate||But...are you sure, Archie?|
You said you wanted to leave Jirachi alone...
If Jirachi refuses, I won't force it to do anything.
But if Jirachi itself wants to help, that's a different story!
So basically, it's up to you, Tate!
First we'll see if you're able to sing a song that wakes Jirachi...
And then we see if your wish is sincere!
|Tate||Thank you for giving me a chance, Archie.|
I practiced so much with Liza. I'll try and sing!
|Tate||When you look up at the sky and wish, the stars will quietly shine. ♪|
If you wish upon the stars, tomorrow shines bright... ♪
|Archie||... ... ...|
|Tate||Oh, my heart that used to be lonely... ♪|
is embraced by your light. ♪
|Archie||Ji-Jirachi woke up!|
|Archie||Go ahead, say your wish. Jirachi's waiting for you.|
Please, Jirachi! Bring Liza and Anabel back to Pasio!
I can't stand the thought of never seeing Liza again!
|Anabel||What's going on, Liza?!|
|Liza||I can hear Tate singing!|
|Anabel||What? Singing? I can't hear anything...|
|Liza||I can hear Tate singing from over there!|
|Anabel||(The twins have a very strong connection...)|
(Maybe that Ultra Wormhole leads to our original world?)
Celesteela! Can you fly us to that Ultra Wormhole?
|Liza||Oh, I've got it!|
Just go zoom, and then go brrr!
|Anabel||Did it...get the message?|
|Liza||Anabel! Hurry up and grab onto Celesteela!|
We're gonna fly towards the sky!
- Wish upon a Star
|Tate||Please, come back!|
|Archie||H-hey! Look, kiddo!|
|Anabel||D-did we...make it back?|
|Tate||Liza! Are you OK?!|
|Liza||Yup! Anabel was with me, and Celesteela protected us too!|
|Tate||Ah, I'm so happy!|
Thank you, Jirachi! Because of you, I got to see Liza again!
|Liza||Jirachi! You woke up!|
|Tate||Yup, that's right! In order to find you two, Archie suggested...|
|Archie||Happy for you two, Tate, Liza...|
I'll leave the rest to you, copper.
|Anabel||Sure. Leave it to me.|
Hilbert is standing with N and Hilda, who are wearing their summer outfits;
Steven and Lyra are standing together and wearing their summer outfits;
Liza, Tate, Celesteela, and Jirachi are standing in the center, and Molayne approaches them)
|Molayne||I'm sorry I couldn't help when something so serious was going on...|
|Tate||Don't worry, Molayne!|
|Liza||We came back safe, and we made some new friends too!|
|Tate||Also, we practiced our singing and dancing even more!|
|Liza||Let's make it a fun star festival with everyone!|
|Molayne||Yeah, that's right! I'll do my best to liven it up, too!|
Hilda talks to Lyra while N, Steven, and Hilbert talk; Shelly and Archie watch from afar)
|Shelly||It seems Jirachi has met a nice Trainer.|
I've heard you're supposed to wish upon a star at the star festival event.
What are you wishing for?
|Shelly||That's a silly question.|
I'm pretty sure it's the same as you.
|Archie||Hahaha! Didn't need to ask, did I?|
|Archie||(I hope when those kiddos grow up, and even after that...)|
(People and Pokémon in the world can carry on laughing with each other like this. That's all I wish for.)
- The star festival in this event is a reference to the Japanese Tanabata festival.
