Brock is eager to help. The girl introduces herself as Marley, who was hiding in a boat and got asleep. But when they emerge they discover the garden. 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. 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. As the sun had set the previous day, on the banks of the river she'd shown it the direction to the garden where the Gracidea flower blooms needed by Shaymin to convert to Sky Form and fly away safe from attacks by Team Rocket.

Shaymin scarpered and discovered Marley a little way further up the path, leaping up onto the dead girl's shoulder and catching her by surprise. All her dead, emotionally cut off mind takes from this is the information that Brock's name is Brock, further pissing off Ash and Dawn. Ash and Dawn are somewhat intimidated by her calm responses and travel towards the mountain. To blast them off, Shaymin destroys the machine using Air Slash. Ash and friends, knowing the danger, join Marley in helping to keep Shaymin safe while returning it to its friends. She tells them she must keep it hidden away from the bad people.

Pikachu uses Thunderbolt and Piplup uses BubbleBeam, though Team Rocket fires a cannon to prevent this. Piplup's stomach grumbles and Pikachu agrees it is hungry, so Brock settles down to give them some food, his mothering instinct too strong to deny. 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.

Ash tells Marley she is with them and she does not have to worry. Fortunately, Shaymin absorbs it via Seed Flare and cures Piplup and Pikachu using Aromatherapy. Ash and Dawn come to see the trouble and the girl wakes up. Marley knew Shaymin wanted to get to a garden past the mountain and left it. Meowth remembers it well, as we flashback to a strangely Nude-Giovanni-Free Flashback of the night before.

Moral Learnt People tend to think the older kid is in charge! At the end of the tunnel, they see a field full of plants, but without a flower they seek. 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. In the confusion, James grabbed Shaymin, but it used Seed Flare to absorb the Haze and explode with green energy, knocking Team Rocket onto their backs. Will Shaymin get well and will they be able to get to the Mountain? 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.

They were walking through the forest when they spotted Shaymin waddling its fat little ass along the path. 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. 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.
