Sacha et son Pikachu arrive à Fula où se tient l'annuel Festival du Vent. Cette célébration honore le Pokémon légendaire Lugia qui avait fait don de ses vents à la ville après avoir vu les liens qui unissaient les Pokémon et leurs dresseurs. Mais les festivités tournent au cauchemar: les vents s'arrêtent soudainement de souffler et la Team Rocket diffuse accidentellement un nuage toxique sur la ville. Sacha doit alors s'allier de compagnons insolites afin de sauver les habitants: un menteur compulsif, la fille du maire, une vielle dame refusant tout contact avec les Pokémon, un scientifique timide et une athlète en manque de confiance. Alors que tous coopèrent pour sauver le festival, un Pokémon mystérieux, Zeraora, tâche de sauver les Pokémon de la forêt.

Ash Ketchum, Dawn, Brock and their Pokémon arrive in Michina Town. As the group relaxes in a nearby river, some watermelons suddenly float towards them. While enjoying the watermelons with their Pokémon, a boy named Kato and his sister Kiko appear who justify that the watermelons were theirs and were kept to cool in the flow of the river. Kato and Kiko then challenge Ash for a tag battle in return of the watermelons. Ash and Dawn thus plan for a tag Pokémon battle against them using Ash's Pikachu and Dawn's Piplup against Kako's Heracross and Kiko's Beautifly. Ash and Dawn win the battle with good teamwork and also request Kato and Kiko to join for eating watermelons. After that, Kato and Kiko suggest Ash and the gang visit the local temple ruins. Whilst visiting a lake, a typhoon suddenly strikes up, but siblings named Sheena and Kevin summon Dialga who ends the typhoon. Giratina arrives, but Sheena uses her ability to communicate with a Pokémon's heart to quell their conflicts with each other, sending Giratina back to its dimension. Palkia then arrives to save Dialga from another typhoon, and Sheena, once again, uses her ability to sync with the two to thank them. Taking the kids to the temple, Sheena and Kevin explain that they investigate disruptions in time and space, and worry that Arceus, the creator of the dimensions, is to awaken, and that he is responsible for the encounters between Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina.

Shûhei Amamiya est un garçon de bonne famille dont le rêve est de devenir un grand pianiste, comme son père. Un jour, il déménage de Tokyo pour aller vivre quelque temps chez sa grand-mère malade. Là, il y rencontre Kaï Ichinose, un jeune garçon issu d'une famille pauvre et devient son ami. Dans leur classe, pour être respecté, il faut aller jouer d'un piano abandonné dans la forêt et que l'on dit cassé. Kaï, qui se dit propriétaire du piano, se révèle être le seul à pouvoir en jouer et est de surcroît très doué. Cette rencontre marque le début de l'apprentissage du piano entre deux enfants talentueux : l'un fils de bonne famille, l'autre, enfant des rues mais ayant en commun une passion : le piano. Tous deux se préparent et participent à un concours musical, montré à la fin de ce dessin animé, dont le morceau imposé est la Sonate pour Piano n°8 K.310 de Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
