On a new day in the Kanto region, Satoshi is invited by Professor Yukinari Okido to the opening ceremony of Professor Sakuragi laboratory in Vermillion City. During the ceremonial speech, Professor Sakuragi receives an alert from a possibly rare Pokémon that appears in the port of Town Vermillion, which leads Satoshi and the other coaches to run to the area with the hope of finding the mysterious Pokémon. In the port, they find Lugia, a legendary Pokémon, in combat with other coaches. At realization of the tactics of the other coaches, Satoshi makes his partner, Pikachu, hit Lugia with a Thunderbolt attack. Without immutting, Lugia flees, but not before Satoshi jumped with determination on his back. To Safoshi's surprise, he meets another boy, Gou, who also jumped on Lugia's back.

While leaving both of them on the ground, Satoshi and Gou say goodbye to Lugia and return to the Sakuragi Institute. Printed by Gou's findings and Satoshi's perception during his meeting, Sakuragi requests that the duo be his new research partners. And so the trip of the duo begins, traveling through multiple regions to meet many new Pokémon, including those with Gigantamax's ability!
