The animation begins with a background image of Reshiram with its eyes glowing blue. Ash, Cilan, Iris, and N all make dramatic poses as N's necklace glows. The scene changes to the "Best Wishes! 2 Episode N" logo. At the Aspertia Gym, Iris, Cilan, and N watch as Ash and his Oshawott face Cheren and his Herdier. A cloaked N walks in a snowy mountainous area with Anthea and Concordia in the background.
James smiles confidently with one eye closed while Jessie poses with a rose in her hand with Meowth standing behind her. A shot of Ghetsis, Colress, Aldith, Barret, Weiss, Schwarz and other four Team Plasma Grunts pans to the side while a map of Unova is burned to reveal the Team Plasma logo behind it. The logo is revealed to be part of a helicopter that Aldith and Barret ride in while their Liepard blasts a building in front of them with Hyper Beam. The explosion causes Ash, Iris, and Cilan, to duck as they watch it from below. The Genesect Army quickly shift into their High-Speed Flight Forms and races off into the sky.
Pikachu fires an Electro Ball; Ash's Oshawott dodges attacks while using Aqua Jet; Axew fires off a Dragon Rage; Dragonite attacks with a Flamethrower. Colress is shown with several Pokémon under his control. In the White Ruins, Pikachu uses Iron Tail to fight off a controlled Beartic. After Pikachu is knocked away, Boldore steps in to combat Beartic as well. Beartic smacks Boldore away, who simply retaliates with a Rock Blast. Axew and Oshawott run away from an attacking Mienshao, but Oshawott stays behind and attacks it with Razor Shell.
Ash, Iris, Cilan, and N run on top of a bridge while being attacked by several Shadow Balls. Several of Team Plasma's Pokémon are defeated by Looker, Jessie, James, and Meowth. Ghetsis waves his arm, signaling Reshiram to burst out of the ground. As it hovers above Ash, Pikachu, Iris, Cilan, and N, Reshiram attacks with Blue Flare, only for it to be deflected by a Flamethrower. A surprised Ash looks up to see his Charizard, who confidently looks back at him. Charizard attacks with another Flamethrower, while the scene changes to a group shot of Ash, Iris, Cilan, N, Colress, Aldith, Brand, two other Team Plasma Grunts, Jessie, James, Meowth, Looker, and a large shot of Ghetsis looking down on them all.
