==Plot==
 
Still on the way to Sunyshore City so Ash can battle for his eighth and final Gym Badge, he and his friends find themselves lost in a deep forest, they saw a Murkrow up in a tree then flies above their heads, this makes Brock and Dawn worry that something bad may happen as it is told in an old saying about Murkrow. Suddenly, they felt the ground shaking and they surprisingly saw Giratina, before Ash attempts to look up Giratina's data in his Pokédex, Giratina tried to step into them. They escape the Giratina but they are caught up in a flood of rushing water, a woman rescues and wakes them up, they are told that they were caught up in an illusion caused by a Murkrow's Confuse Ray, Brock flirts at the woman only to be stopped by Croagunk. Ash and friends introduced themselves and the woman's name was revealed to be Rhyanna, she lives in the nearby village and told them that Murkrow was her brother's Pokémon, the reason why she'd know that they are seeing illusions.
 
   
They start to talk about Rhyanna's brother, she told them that her brother's name was Mitchell and they used to battle together, Mitchell wants to become stronger so he trained his Murkrow in a mountain, that's when he began play pranks on the travelers. Ash and Dawn ask why she didn't put a stop to this, or talk to her brother, Rhyanna told them that she was being avoided by her younger brother that's why she's looking so hard for a Dusk Stone to evolve her Misdreavus into a Mismagius, believing from her grandpa that it can chant spells that can bring people happiness, she was planning to use it on Mitchell so that she and her brother can make up. Brock decides to help Rhyanna and promised to do everything he can to make her happy.

==Episode Plot==
  +
As the heroes get lost in a forest (as they continue their path to Sunyshore City), they encounter a Murkrow. The Murkrow flies over, making brock to believe something bad happens when a Murkrow flies over at night. Ash does not believe it, as the night has not yet come. Suddenly, the earth shakes, as a huge monster appears and the gang runs away. Even if they have ran away, they get swept by a wave. As they wake up, they see a woman, who explains it was an illusion caused by Murkrow's Confuse Ray.
   
At a distance, Team Rocket was eavesdropping on their conversation. James took out their new gadget, a Dusk Stone detection device, and they begin to search for a Dusk Stone, hoping to find their own happiness. Rhyanna takes our heroes to a shrine, according to her grandpa, people used to mine Dusk Stones somewhere nearby the shrine, she once tried to look for a Dusk Stone before but with no success. Ash and friends decide to help Rhyanna in her search this time, the four split up into two teams with Ash and Dawn, Rhyanna and Brock, Brock suggests that maybe her Misdreavus can find it, since they were the only ones that evolve via Dusk Stone so she took out her Misdreavus. Misdreavus searches and seems to sense something. As Ash and Dawn continue their search, the same Murkrow suddenly appears and starts pecking Piplup's head, Ash commands Pikachu to use Thunderbolt on it so that they can capture it, Murkrow couldn't dodge the hit and Mitchell came running back to it, Mitchell told them that his sister doesn't care for him but Dawn instantly disagrees to what Mitchell says, and explains that his sister was even trying to find a Dusk Stone just to make him happy, which makes him reconsider.
+
After Brock gets stabbed by Croagunk for flirting, the heroes introduce themselves, while the woman is Rhyanna. Brock asks how does she know it was an illusion, so Rhyanna tells them Murkrow is her brother's Pokémon. She explains that she and her brother fought in a battle and one day, Mitchell decided to go train with Murkrow, avoiding her sister and playing pranks on any travelers. She thinks if her Misdreavus were to evolve in Mismagius using the Dusk Stone (which she needs to find), it could be enough to bring joy to her brother so they could apologize to each other. Brock gladly offers help, which makes Rhyanna very happy about it.
   
As Brock and Rhyanna follow Misdreavus, meanwhile Team Rocket's detection device lead them to falling off of a cliff, they find a mysterious cave and believe there maybe Dusk Stone's inside of it, they have a quick fantasy about giving a Mismagius to their boss and in turn realize in order to have a Mismagius, they should also have to catch a Misdreavus. Suddenly, they caught sight of Rhyanna's Misdreavus just before Rhyanna and Brock themselves falls off the same cliff. Ash and Dawn are chasing Mitchell. when Ash finally caught up to him, Mitchell says he wants to get the dusk stone before his sister does, he explains to Ash and Dawn that he wants to become stronger so that he could beat his sister, so he trained up in a mountain with Murkrow, though when training, Murkrow was disappointed at him for not doing well at the training, so Murkrow stopped listening into anything Mitchell told it, Ash and Dawn realize Mitchell has nothing to do with any of Murkrow's pranks, Mitchell keeps blaming his sister for this, Dawn told him to look at how his Pokémon feels, Ash, feeling the same way, also told Mitchell to work with Murkrow as a team and start listening Murkrow's feelings instead of his own.
+
Team Rocket overhears this story and Jessie decides to get that Dusk Stone and picks some rocks. While Meowth and James tell her those are not Dusk Stones, James pulls out some rods. While Jessie and Meowth doubt that will get them the stones, James explains that it will search for minerals, which should get them the stone they need and begins to search. Meanwhile, the gang came to a shrine, where near it might be some Dusk Stones left. They split up, so Brock asks of Rhyanna to send Misdreavus to search for Dusk Stone as well. When she sends Misdreavus out, it goes immediately to search.
   
Mitchell felt sorry for his Murkrow, and his tears woke it back up. Rhyanna and Brock finally wake up and find themselves in a place where her Grandfather used to mine for dusk stones, Misdreavus detects something below a large rock, and when Brock removes the rock, they find themselves a dusk stone. Rhyanna cheerfully embraces and thanks Brock for his hard work, while Brock is thrilled and blood-red, Team Rocket suddenly appears and catches Misdreavus, reciting their motto after wards, Brock quickly sends out his Sudowoodo and commands it to save Rhyanna's Misdreavus, Meowth pulls out a remote that controls a Pidgey robot, Ash, Dawn and Mitchell saw the robot fly above their heads and rushed to where Team Rocket were, Meowth throws Misdreavus into a cage located in the Pidgey robot's chest, Team Rocket attempt to escape in their giant robot, Brock commands Sudowoodo to use Double-Edge, Meowth sends out a fan that blows away Sudowoodo, Brock commanded it again to use Double-Edge at the robot, the Pidgey robot sends out a broom, twirling it and using Sand-Attack to stop Sudowoodo, the robot then fired its right wing to Sudowoodo, which knocks it unconscious, Brock returns Sudowoodo.
+
Ash and Dawn search for the Stone as well. A Murkrow comes and pecks Piplup, so Pikachu uses Thunderbolt, which electrocutes Murkrow. However, a boy, which Dawn and Ash recognize as Mitchell, comes. Ash and Dawn demand to know why is he pulling pranks, but Mitchell does not want to say. Mitchell tells them his sister does not care about him, but is told that she is looking for a way to make him happy. Jessie and Meowth follow James, whose rods sense some minerals. Though they fall down the cliff, they soon spot a cave and search around it. Meowth believes if they were to find the stone, they could evolve a Misdreavus to Mismagius to keep the boss happy. Though Jessie recalls they need to catch a Misdreavus, they soon encounter one and also Brock and Rhyanna sliding down the cliff.
   
A robotic hand tries to snatch away Rhyanna's Dusk Stone, Rhyanna doesn't want to let go, the robot then flies up into the air with her still attached. Ash and Dawn, with Mitchell see this, Mitchell realizes that he was wrong about his sister after seeing her determination, Pikachu was ready to use Thunderbolt but stopped by Ash, Ash took out his Staraptor and commanded it to help Rhyanna, Mitchell sends out his Murkrow to help her too, Murkrow followed him after Mitchell begs it to return its trust to him again. Staraptor got Rhyanna's shoulders with Murkrow using Peck on the robotic hand that got Rhyanna's dusk stone. The robotic hand broke off and Rhyanna got her Dusk Stone back, Staraptor safely landed with Rhyanna but Team Rocket still has Misdreavus, Mitchell commanded Murkrow to get it back and successfully returns Misdreavus with no trouble, Ash commands Pikachu to use Thunderbolt which blasted Team Rocket again.
+
Ash stops Mitchell from running away. Mitchell explains that he wants to find the Dusk Stone before his sister does, as Rhyanna always defeats him in battle. He went to train, but Murkrow got angry and started causing illusions using Confuse Ray. He blames his sister for all the trouble, but Ash and Dawn disagree and respond he should think of Murkrow first, not himself. Hearing this, Mitchell regrets what he did. Brock, Rhyanna and Misdreavus came near the mine, while Team Rocket hides in a bush. Misdreavus is focused upon a rock and upon getting the rock away, they see the Dusk Stone, so Rhyanna hugs Brock, making him blush. Suddenly, the Misdreavus gets caught by Team Rocket. Though Misdreavus struggles to get out, it gets electrocuted. Brock sends Sudowoodo to get Misdreavus, though Meowth pushes a button.
   
Mitchell and Rhyanna were once again reunited and were happy to see each other, Rhyanna told him that she doesn't need to evolve her Misdreavus because Mitchell doesn't need to have a happiness spell anymore. Mitchell then challenges Rhyanna and says that whoever wins the most battles out of ten gets the stone, Rhyanna happily accepts the challenge. A little help from Ash and friends settles the disagreement once and for all, and now that Ash has drawn a training inspiration from new friends, the journey continues...
+
Ash, Dawn and Mitchell soon see a giant Pidgey, which comes to Team Rocket. Sudowoodo uses Double Edge to attack the machine, though Meowth releases a giant fan which cancels the attack. Sudowoodo repeats again, but gets swept by Sand Attack from the robot. Meowth releases the wing, which knocks Sudowoodo out, so Brock calls it back. Rhyanna struggles to get the Dusk Stone, but Team Rocket goes up. Ash, Dawn and Mitchell come and see the trouble. Ash sends Staraptor to get Rhyanna and Misdreavus out, so Mitchell sends Murkrow and with some persuasion, Murkrow goes with Staraptor. While Staraptor gets Rhyanna, Murkrow pecks the robot arm, freeing Rhyanna. MUrkrow also shatters the glass, which frees Misdreavus. With a Thunderbolt, Pikachu blasts Team Rocket away.

Episode PlotEdit

As the heroes get lost in a forest (as they continue their path to Sunyshore City), they encounter a Murkrow. The Murkrow flies over, making brock to believe something bad happens when a Murkrow flies over at night. Ash does not believe it, as the night has not yet come. Suddenly, the earth shakes, as a huge monster appears and the gang runs away. Even if they have ran away, they get swept by a wave. As they wake up, they see a woman, who explains it was an illusion caused by Murkrow's Confuse Ray.

After Brock gets stabbed by Croagunk for flirting, the heroes introduce themselves, while the woman is Rhyanna. Brock asks how does she know it was an illusion, so Rhyanna tells them Murkrow is her brother's Pokémon. She explains that she and her brother fought in a battle and one day, Mitchell decided to go train with Murkrow, avoiding her sister and playing pranks on any travelers. She thinks if her Misdreavus were to evolve in Mismagius using the Dusk Stone (which she needs to find), it could be enough to bring joy to her brother so they could apologize to each other. Brock gladly offers help, which makes Rhyanna very happy about it.

Team Rocket overhears this story and Jessie decides to get that Dusk Stone and picks some rocks. While Meowth and James tell her those are not Dusk Stones, James pulls out some rods. While Jessie and Meowth doubt that will get them the stones, James explains that it will search for minerals, which should get them the stone they need and begins to search. Meanwhile, the gang came to a shrine, where near it might be some Dusk Stones left. They split up, so Brock asks of Rhyanna to send Misdreavus to search for Dusk Stone as well. When she sends Misdreavus out, it goes immediately to search.

Though Misdreavus struggles to get out, it gets electrocuted. Brock sends Sudowoodo to get Misdreavus, though Meowth pushes a button.

TriviaEdit

  • Professor Oak's Pokémon lecture: Froslass
  • The plot of this episode may be based on the Belgian opera L'oiseau bleu (The Blue Bird) where two siblings search for the "blue bird of happiness". This reflects the search for the Dusk Stone that would evolve Misdreavus into Mismagius that can perform incantations to make one happy. Both Mitchell and Rhyanna's Japanese names reflect the names of the siblings.
  • Rhyanna's Pokédex as seen in this episode appears to represent the Ice Blue edition of the Nintendo DS Lite that was released in 2008 (similar to how the Pokédex typically represents the latest released Nintendo handheld system).
  • The small shrine seen in this episode has a striking resemblance to Celebi's shrine that appeared in the fourth movie.
  • The episode's title is a reference to the band Sly and the Family Stone.
  • The preview of the next episode was narrated by both Ash and Dawn.
  • This was the last new episode to air before the English release of Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver.
  • Near the beginning of the episode, Murkrow's pupil was strikingly similar to a Poké Ball — specifically, the design used on the DS touchscreen's background during a battle in Generation IV games.
  • The Finnish title of this episode is a reference to Finnish dark comedy series Sisko ja sen veli from 1986, written and directed by Neil Hardwick.
  • Jessie breaks the fourth wall in this episode.
