Satoshi and Go are visiting Hiun City in the Isshu region. However, the Rocket Gang secretly got there before them, preparing to get Pikachu by swapping it for their mech "Almost Pikachu", which looks just like Pikachu. But Aceburn and Lucario see this happen and chase after the Rocket Gang. Where will the road take these two?
