Early in the morning, the sun shines down on Twinleaf Town. In Dawn’s bedroom, the Starly clock starts to go off at 7am when Dawn, still half-asleep, shuts it off. Piplup, lying at the end of the bed, decides to take matters into his own hands and wakes her up by using his Peck attack on her as she throws Piplup back on the sofa cushion. She realizes it’s already morning as she opens her window mirroring the event from the very first episode. She comes downstairs greeting her mother, Brock and Pikachu as she asks where Ash is. They tell her that he’s still asleep as Dawn, Piplup and Pikachu head towards his room.
