On the way to Veilstone City, Brock brings the group to the Mountain Hut Maid Cafe where they meet the owners, sisters Spring, Summer and Autumn. The sisters show them how they produce the milk, which is where they learn that Autumn's Miltank, Ilta, does not like to listen. Brock agrees to help Autumn and Ilta, so Ash and Dawn decide to help Spring and Summer with the cafe in their absence. Brock then bestows all his breeding knowledge to help Autumn and Ilta get along and cooperate. Meanwhile, Team Rocket tries to have their own cafe, but when that fails, they decide to steal Ilta instead. Also, in the meantime, after losing the second Contest in a row, Dawn has fallen into a very deep depression and is suffering a lack of confidence.
