==Episode Plot==
The gang arrives to a building where they see a screen featuring a movie. Not much after are they suprised to see the main actress approaching them. Suddenly the actress transforms into [[Iris (anime)|Iris]], but finally it is shown that Zorua is shape changing. A man runs towards them, demanding his Zorua. Zorua changes into Pikachu and fights with [[Ash's Pikachu]]. The man lifts his Pokémon, but he is electrocuted when he realizes that the Pikachu is not Zorua. The man goes after [[Iris' Axew]], but sees that Zorua escapes them.
+
Suddenly, a movie appears on a screen, featuring two trainers using Escavalier and a Gorluk. The heroes arrive and watch it, making Cilan very excited. The heroes admit they love movies. Suddenly, the actress oft he Wonder Launcher movie appears and transforms into Iris and into a Zorua. A boy runs towards them, wanting Zorua back. Zorua transforms into Pikachu, so the boy mistakes Ash's Pikachu to be his Zorua and gets electrocuted. Zorua transforms into Axew, so the boy searches through Iris' hair. The boy uses the Poke Ball to call Zorua, who uses Shadow Ball instead. The boy tells his Zorua, who is female is the lead actress in his movie. The boy is Luke, who aims to make a new movie.
   
The man introduces himself as Luke - he is making the movies, like the one they saw on the screen. His comapnion are Zorua (as they saw before) and a Golett. He tells Zorua is the actor - she can change into many characters and Pokémon, but sadly when Luke wanted a Captain, Zorua transformed into a princess and ran away. Team Rocket spy on the situation. They go inside and see the princess. The princess shifts into Zorua, so [[Cilan (anime)|Cilan]] believes that Zorua wants to be only the princess. Zorua agrees, but Luke wonders how is he going to make a movie with one character. To help him, [[Ash]] offers to help him by being the actor, with others agreeing. Luke gives Ash the role of protagonist - "Knight", [[Iris (anime)|Iris]] is a "Dragon Master" and Cilan is the antagonist - the "Captain". So, Luke goes off to write the scenario, Ash, Iris and Cilan making the movie equipment and Luke's Leavanny and Ash's Swadloon making the costumes.
+
He tells Zorua is the actor, for she can change into many characters and Pokémon. However, when he was making a scene, he asked her to transform into a knight and a pirate, but Zorua kept changing into a princess before running away. Team Rocket spies as the heroes try to find Zorua. They come to the theatre, where Luke was watching movies. He also saw there was always the lead actress watching the movie. When he came down, he encountered Zorua, who agreed to act in his movies. Suddenly, an old man comes, so Luke introduces the heroes to Mr. Matthews, the manager, who reports Zorua is inside.
   
After some time, the movie can be started. In scene one, "Knight" Ash and Pikachu are seeing "Captain" Cilan taking the princess. Ash is nervous, so Luke and Cilan give him advice that he needs to be himself to overcome nervousness. So, they begin anew - "Knight" demands from the "Captain" the princess. When he refuses, Pikachu uses Electro-Ball while [[Cilan's Pansage]] attacks with Solar Beam. With the explosion, the Captain and Princess are disappeared. This ends the scene and Luke is happy everything went right.
+
The heroes come inside and see a princess. Luke tells Zorua plays as the princess, the main character in his movie. Zorua is angry, so Cilan believes she wants to play only the role of the princess. Luke does not know how can he make a movie with one character, so Cilan proposes he, Ash and Iris can participate in the movie. Luke is pleased and sends Leavanny, who goes to make costumes, while he goes to make a script. After everyone made costumes, gear and set, they go to sleep. Later, Luke tells the heroes the plot. A pirate captain stole the princess, who holds the secret of the kingdom's treasure. The knight has to seek a Dragon Master, who gives her advice after a battle. In the final scene, the knight defeats the captain and rescues the princess.
   
The scene two features the "Knight" Ash and "Dragon Master" Iris. The Knight asks him where the Princess is, but the Sage will not tell him if he defeats her. To do that, Pikachu uses Electro-Ball, so Axew dodges, but he isn't fast so is stricken by the attack. Luke does not know if Axew is the best character for the scene, but Cilan proposes that Axew should use Dragon Rage instead. So, they repeat, but Axew uses Dragon Rage, stopping Electro-Ball. The Dragon Master says to the Knight he should look into his heart to attack. So, Pikachu uses Thunderbolt as well to defeat Axew, but both Axew and the Dragon Master disappear.
+
Ash is pleased he is the main character, but Iris corrects him, as the main character is the princess. She thinks it is bad Cilan plays the role of the antagonist, though Cilan replies he is vital to the plot and gives the movie some depth. Later, they arrive to the set, where the movie can be documented. The Pokémon Knight demands from the captain the princess. Luke stops, as Ash is too nervous. Cilan tells Ash to become one with the character he is playing, but Ash does not know what he is talking about. Luke explains to give all what he has to offer. They repeat the scene, so the Knight orders Pikachu to use Electro Ball. The captain's Pansage retaliates with Solarbeam, allowing the captain to escape with the princess, with Iris borrowing the voice for the princess. Luke is pleased by the scene and moves onwards.
   
In 3rd scene, the Knight needs to rescue the Princess from the Captain. Pikachu uses Electro-Ball, but his attack is stopped by Pansage's Solar Beam. Unexpectedly, Team Rocket's Yamask and Woobat attack them, appearing in a plane and stealing the Princess (who transforms into Zorua). Cilan tells Luke to still point the camera. The Captain says he was bad because Team Rocket possessed him, so he reveals to be a magician. Golett uses Shadow Ball to destroy the plane and Pansage uses Bullet Seed to open the cage. However, Yamask uses Shadow Ball and Woobat Air Slash. Zorua is going up an falls, but Ash sends Tranquill and catches Zorua. Yamask uses SHadow Ball, but is negated by Pikachu's Electro-Ball, so Zorua falls down. Zorua goes to the gang, but Meowth appears, so Zorua transforms into a female Meowth, charming him. Pikachu uses Electro-Ball, then Thunderbolt to defeat them, but Team Rocket fly away in jetpacks.
+
The knight asks the Dragon Master where the Princess is, but the Dragon Master will tell him if he defeats her. Pikachu uses Electro Ball, so Axew tries to dodge, but fails and gets hit. Luke stops the scene, thinking Pikachu will have to slow down, as Axew is not fast. Cilan advises Axew could retaliate with Dragon Rage. The scene is repeated, so Axew uses Dragon Rage, countering Electro Ball. The Dragon Master tells the Knight he needs to prove he is strong enough. Axew uses Dragon Rage, though Pikachu uses Electro Ball, followed with Thunderbolt, to stop Dragon Rage. The Dragon Master disappears, acknowledging the knight's will and courage to find the princess. Meanwhile, Team Rocket observes.
   
Cilan (aka the "Magician) tells Iris to transform into a princess - Iris has been the princess all the time, to fool Team Rocket from capturing her. In the end of the movie, the Knight and the Magician swear oath to protect the Princess. The viewers are amazed by the movie and the director himself is pleased, although he would've liked to see more exciting battles. He advises Luke to go to the Battle club at Nimbasa City. The gang hears that statement, so they will go with Luke to there as well.
+
Before the third scene, Luke tells them that he will keep the camera rolling, so they must not stop. Ash asks what if they stop, so Cilan answers they need to improvise, so they cannot stick to the script too much. In third scene, the knight needs to rescue the princess from the captain, for the princess was forced to open the path to the Treasure Cave. Pansage uses Bullet Seed, but misses due to Pikachu's Quick Attack. Pikachu uses Electro-Ball, powered with Thunderbolt, stopping Solarbeam and defeating Pansage and the Captain. Suddenly, Team Rocket's Yamask and Woobat attack them, appearing in a saucer and stealing the princess (who transforms into Zorua). Gollet uses Shadow Ball, destroying Team Rocket's saucer. The captain says Team Rocket possessed him, so he reveals to be a Sorcerer, while the Dragon Master appears as well. Pansage uses Bullet Seed on the cage, freeing Zorua, while Axew uses Dragon Rage to hit Team Rocket. Woobat uses Gust, engulfing Zorua, who gets saved by Ash's Tranquill.
  +
  +
Yamask uses Shadow Ball, and despite being countered by Electro Ball, Zorua falls down. Meowth appears in front of Zorua, who transforms into a female Meowth, charming him. Jessie and James scold Meowth, so Zorua uses Night Daze to defeat Team Rocket, who fly away in jetpacks. The Sorcerer tells Zorua is saved from Team Rocket, while the Dragon Master disguised herself, for she takes off the disguise, for she is the real princess. The Sorcerer and the Knight promise to the princess they will protect her. The princess promises to make a better world for the Pokemon, ending the movie. The movie is appreciated by the audience and Mr. Matthews himself is pleased, although he says that the battle scenes could have been more exciting. He advises Luke to go to the Battle Tournament at Nimbasa City. The heroes hear that, so they go with Luke, intending on participating in the Tournament.
