In Fuura City, a town where people live together with the wind, a "Wind Festival" is held once a year. It is said that long ago the people agreed to receive the blessing of the wind when the legendary pokemon Lugia shows itself on the last day of the festival.

Lisa, a female high school student and pokemon novice.

Satoshi and Pikachu stumble upon the festival and run into these five people. As each person and their partner pokemon is facing their own hang-ups and is unable to take any steps forward, they come together and get the wheels of fate to start turning.

Will they be able to keep their promise with Lugia? And what is the true identity of the mythical pokemon Zeraora??
