Episode Summary

On the way to Dawn's next contest in Lilypad Town, Ash and friends arrive at Mt. Coronet's east side. At a river, they see a group of blue Shellos, as well as a pink one which is about to be swept away by the current. After they save it, Nurse Joy arrives to treat the Shellos, having apparently been looking for it. Joy says that it's odd that a pink Shellos would be here, since only blue Shellos live on Mt. Coronet's east side, while pink Shellos live on the west side. She then explains that pink Shellos have been appearing lately on the mountain's east side. Ash and friends agree to take the Shellos back to its home on the west side, but on their way across the mountain, they end up falling through a hole into a series of tunnels where they are thrown into yet another sinister scheme by Team Galactic. Saturn and Charon have been sent to find the Spear Pillar, and will stop at nothing to find it. Will Ash and the others be able to escape and bring the pink Shellos safely back to its home?moreless
