This Lunatone crashed into the planet by a meteorite, where it was injured by Ken and Mary of the Pokémon Mystery Club. Despite it's injuries, Lunatone used hypnosis to erase their minds of the events. Eventually it reached Volley Town and took control over the local Nurse Joy so it could heal. Ash and his friend arrived in town and decided to check into the center, where the hypnotized Nurse shooed them away. Seeing Team Rocket, trying to break in, the four learn about Lunatone and Meowth translate saying it had been injuried. After getting rid of Team Rocket, Ash and his friends found Lunatone, and decided to take it to Camerupt Point to heal, being it had the best chance to see the moon in a town surrounded by canyon walls. Despite interference from both Team Rocket and the PMC, Lunatone fully healed using Moonlight and gave Ken and Mary a blast off via Hidden Power. It soon left for the moon after that.
