Ash and co. are well on their way to Castelia City via the Skyarrow Bridge, but a Gothitelle blocks the way. Who is Sallie, and what connection does she have with Gothitelle?
Ash, Iris and Cilan finally went to Castelia City, but to get to the City, they need to cross the Skyarrow Bridge. Before going to the City, Ash wants to contact Professor Juniper, so he goes to the nearest ship. However, they Ash almost bumps into a woman.
Later, Ash consults to Professor Juniper about trading Sewaddle for his Pidove. Later, they spot the very same woman and she tells the tale that there was a taxi that transported people to Castelia City, back when there wasn't the Skyarrow Bridge.
When they got out, Jenny arrives. However, a fog appears and Jenny bring her Swanna out to clear the fog. Strangely, the fog did not clear, and Jenny tracks a car driver to warn not to drive until the fog isn't cleared out. Ash, Iris and Cilan begin to cross the bridge, but they notice the fog being more and more thicker.
Suddenly, an angry Gothitelle arrives, striking at them! Ash brings his Snivy out and orders her to attack. Snivy attacks, but she fails to do any damage, as Gothitelle protects himself. Then suddenly, the gang disappears into a bright light!
When they wake up, they see that the Skyarrow Bridge is not finished. Near the bridge, they see some people - a man, a girl and 2 elderly women. The man and the girl use their own boat to transport people into Castelia City. Ash, Iris and Cilan see Gothitelle, but very happy. They go onto the boat to Castelia City. After they got out, they notice that they are in the same place before they got on the boat! Ash, Cilan and Iris then introduce themselves to the girl, while she introduces herself as Sallie and helps her father. Gothitelle was a wild Pokémon from the woods, but one day he came to the taxi to help them.
The girl goes away, but Gothitelle goes to the bridge. Ash, Iris and Cilan follow him. As they went to the bridge, Gothitelle starts becoming very angry. The gang tries to reason with him, but with no effort. Ash bring his Snivy out and orders to attack. With no effect of Snivy's attack, Gothitelle begins to use his most powerful attack, but gives up, as the woman (the same one Ash almost bumped into near the shop) persuades Gothitelle to bring them all to the present, when the Skyarrow Bridge was already finished.
The woman introduces herself as Sallie and explains everything - Skyarrow Bridge was finished, but the taxi was not needed anymore, so Sallie's father, Gothitelle and Sallie moved out. Sallie grew up and went to medical school, while Gothitelle came to the Skyarrow Bridge.
Gothitelle, who heard Sallie's story, goes away, haunting the bridge no longer. The fog has cleared, Sallie goes away, and Ash, Cilan and Iris cross the Skyarrow Bridge.
