Brock rescues her, and they find out that a legendary Shaymin is with her, injured by a group of thugs who want to steal it. . To hide herself, she laid down and soon went asleep. Hugging the fat little hedgehog she noted how warm and cosy it was and fell asleep. Oh come on Brock, she looks like she's about 14 years old. Back in the present, a furious Team Rocket says it takes more than a blast off to banish them, and now they're going to get that Shaymin. Brock gives it a berry to clear out any remaining toxins, and it farts out a black haze in response, and another berry rejuvenates it somewhat so the little hedgehog looks clean and full of life again, unlike Marley herself well she does look clean I guess.
Later that night, as she lay sleepless, Shaymin waddled back and nudged up to her, and a strange thing happened to the dead girl's face. Continuing on to the Grand Festival, Ash and friends find a girl named Marley sleeping on a boat in a river. Piplup's stomach rumbles and Dawn notices that he's hungry. However, two other Shaymin warn it and they go towards a lone flower and transform into Sky Form. Ash and Dawn angrily quite rightly! Marley remembers Shaymin absorbed Haze from a Seviper using Seed Flare.
But every time Team Rocket try to do their evil deeds, they fail thanks to Ash and his Pokemon. Brock asks where she is heading after the mountain and she tells them she is going to a secret garden, she can't say any more than that. Piplup, Pikachu and Shaymin run and bump in a Shroomish, who uses Poison Powder. Continuing on to the Grand Festival, Ash and friends find a girl named Marley in a river and swiftly bound for a waterfall. Team Rocket's machine transforms into a Butterfree machine and they attack them while Shaymin climbs to get the flowers. Meowth remembers it well, as we flashback to a strangely Nude-Giovanni-Free Flashback of the night before. It lifts up and flies away with the other two, and the zombie's mouth falls open slightly as she hears Shaymin's voice in her head we don't get to eavesdrop and she stands between Brock and the others as Ash and Dawn wave happily, Brock enjoys having been the centre of attention for once well, for roughly half the episode anyway and a dead girl remembers, for at least a brief moment, what it means to be alive again.
They were walking through the forest when they spotted Shaymin waddling its fat little ass along the path. Brock spots a rope and sends Happiny and throws a rope to her, which pulls him and the boat to the coast. Marley mumbles that it is settled then, and they all set off together, Dawn and Ash not used to bringing up the rear and not at all happy to be a 3rd wheel in an adventure while Momma Brock takes centre stage. She tells them she is an alien, but she tells them that she is kidding. Team Rocket came back and when Seviper used Haze, Shaymin absorbed it using Seed Flare, came back to Marley and they ran away to a boat.
Inside, of course, is Team Rocket, and the angry twerps say they should have known they were the bad people, and Brock snaps that they're persistent. But when they emerge they discover the garden. However, it came back and they went to the mountain together. Shaymin was sent flying through the air and landed in Marley's hands, and she jumped onto Arcanine's back and they rushed away in a fright, chased by Team Rocket. As the machine goes to make another attack, Shaymin absorbs the flowers and transforms into Sky Form. Ash thinks they could get the flower if they search thoroughly.
They all split up to look through the vast green garden for a flower, and against all reason and logic Brock finds one, nestled into the crack of a large rock in the middle of the garden. Marley has apparently told the twerps the same story as they continue on, and tells them that she tried to part with Shaymin but it didn't work out. The season appears to be over, which means Shaymin won't be able to go at anything other than a half-speed waddle for months. Team Rocket sees this and remember that they saw Shaymin, who got on Marley's shoulder. They go through a mountain to the garden they have to. The girl introduces herself as Marley, who was hiding in a boat and got asleep. Somehow Team Rocket didn't notice the boat sailing down the river and rushed deeper into the forest to search at Jesse's angry command, while Marley lay down and drifted off to sleep.
Marley knew Shaymin wanted to get to a garden past the mountain and left it. She approaches Shaymin and tells it that it needs to fly now, because by night-time it will have to revert to Land Form and it needs to find another garden by then. The Shaymin go away and Marley feels Shaymin thanked her. Brock still ain't getting any, though! Marley tells Brock he is almost like Nurse Joy and Ash eagerly throws in that Brock wants to be a top breeder snicker! Spotting a rowboat on the riverbank, she recalled Arcanine and jumped in, putting Shaymin into the picnic basket some poor ass fisherman gonna come along later and find his boat and his lunch gone! He notices a rope in the boat and sends Happiny out onto the shore and tosses it the rope, and the strong little Pokémon happily hauls the boat and Brock out of the water and crashing onto the ground. But Ash has an idea, a brilliant idea.
Brock immediately checks it up and notices Shaymin is poisoned. To blast them off, Shaymin destroys the machine using Air Slash. Today finds Dawn and Piplup training, Piplup enjoying the chance to show off for the object of its great and impossible lust. Marley's zombie brain works on this new information and she offers up that it did absorb a Seviper's you can see where this is going, Gentle Dodgers Haze Attack earlier in the day. As Ash attempts to talk to Gible which just stands there gabbering blankly with its mouth, Brock is being a mother hen, thinking about making up a meal for his kids after they've worked up a big appetite. She heads off the path into the forest, settles down her basket and opens it to reveal.
