Meloetta's Kirakira Recital, everyone is ready for her once a year
performance using Melody Berry magic. Meowth is so excited he scratches
Iwapress, who he is sitting on, and it uses sandstorm, blowing away
four of the five Melody Berries. The Pokemon get help from other
Pokemon in the area to retreive the Melody Berries so Meloetta can
perform. Meowth hopes to present one to her to win her affections, but
fails. With help from many Pokemon they get all the berries back and

movie begins with the regular flyby of Pokemon, showing every single
one revealed so far. Ash is battling a Kurimugan in an arena with
Pikachu. Jessie and James, in their trench coat disguises, can be seen
by a yellow car and in a field. The trio head towards a train.
is training with Virizion in tall grass. He chases Virizion through it
as she coaches him. He attempts to make a sword with his horn and it
glows rather dimly before fading. Next he is training with Terrakion
who is good spirited and grinning. Keldeo manages to land a kick on its
chest. Finally, a lightning storm is brewing and Keldeo and Cobalion
are galloping through the trees. Keldeo asks for a battle but Cobalion
warns the storm will only worsen. Trees crash and burn and Keldeo puts
out the fires with his water hooves. He begs Cobalion to permit his
battle against Kyurem, but Cobalion refuses the request, as Keldeo is
still unable to use his sword. Later, the four are relaxing by a river.
The three discuss Keldeo and his progress, but Cobalion still thinks he
is not ready to face Kyurem. Keldeo approached, saying he overheard
everything, and he wants to know, what is so important about being able
to use the sword? Cobalion tells him to think about it, and Terrakion
jokes he is not even so sure himself.
night, the four are sleeping in the grass, but Keldeo gets up silently
and walks off to find Kyurem, deliberately and knowingly disobeying his
mentors. He travels to old, rusty and rotting mines placed inside a
looming, dark mountain crater. He looks at Freezio circling. He knows
this is the place. He calls to Kyurem for a battle. Kyurem looms out of
the darkness, stomping slowly forward, and Keldeo claims to be a Sacred
Swordsman already. Kyurem then creates a gate of ice, daring Keldeo to
cross the gate.

him and knows they are coming. They run as fast as they can.
crosses the gate into the icy arena and the battle begins. He does
manage to land a kick on Kyurem's chest, but is quickly pummeled and
beaten with ice moves and shadow claw-looking moves. The others arrive
and are shocked and alarmed to find he has already crossed the gate,
locking him into the battle until it is over, and are even more
disappointed when they hear Keldeo blatantly lie about already being a
Swordsman. Kyurem changes to White Kyurem. Keldeo is petrified with
fear, shaking, whimpering and unable to move or defend himself any
longer. He is hit hard and his horn is snapped off. Keldeo stares in
shock at his broken horn tip, gasping weakly.
can't handle watching his small friend being beaten so brutally and
rushes to help despite Cobalion's protests. (White) Kyurem is angered
at the intrusion and uses what looked like Cross Flare to lock them
into a block of ice. Keldeo, too terrified to stand it anymore, runs
off as Kyurem angrily growls that this battle is not yet over.
and the crew are on a train, a few stops from their destination.
Zuruggu, Mijumaru, Pikachu, Kibago are goofing off on the train,
bothering their trainers, entertaining children, and knocking their
trainers around some more. The train stops and Dento dictates to the
other two they only have three minutes and they MUST obey him, as he is
an Ekiben (train station bento) Sommelier. They rush out and begin to
order dozens of Darumaka Bento lunches from the stand. Rushing to get
back to the train in time with piles of bento in their arms, there is
some chaos with Ash tripping and bento boxes going flying.
weak and stumbling, rolls down the hill and flops onto the top of the
train. The train departs, but oops, Zuruggu has been left behind and
runs in a panic to catch up. Ash and the others reach out and finally
Tsutarja catches him with her vines. Ash hugs him tightly and
apologizes, but Pikachu looks up as it hears a weak moan. It jumps onto
the roof of the next car and the others follow to find Keldeo, who
instantly begins growling angrily and attacking them. They see how weak
and scared he is and are surprised when he begins to speak his terror
of Kyurem, who he knows he coming.
train cars begin to freeze as a mist overcomes them and Freezios circle
closer. Kyurem jumps onto the train and menaces the trio and Keldeo,
who get up and run, Ash helping the limping and injured Pokemon along.
They jump into an empty coal car and Kyurem looms over to attack, but
is forced to jump off as the train enters a tunnel. Iris recalls
hearing about Kyurem from the old woman of her home town. She recalls
being told it is a dragon she may not like. She comments she loves all
dragons, but seems nervous being told it is a freezing Pokemon. She is
told he was born at the same time as Reshiram and Zekrom and is the
strongest dragon in Isshu.

explains about the battle, his mentors being trapped, and how he ran
away. He explains how one cannot become a Sacred Swordsman until one

about his fear, angering him into swearing to save his friends. Ash

Kyurem is coming! He and his Freezio posse have arrived and Kyurem
becomes White Kyurem again to attack. As the trio witness his
transformation, Iris recalls the old woman explaining to her about
Black and White Kyurem, and how Kyurem can harness Reshiram and
Zekrom's powers at will. The trio are chased endlessly by the Freezio
through the city and are separated. Ash, Keldeo and Pikachu continue to
run as White Kyurem pursues them past buildings. Keldeo has Ash hold on
tight as Keldeo shoots water from all four hooves, flying around
crazily with the water shoots out a window and down to the ground
level. Keldeo looks a bit confused about his front hooves having shot

Freezio follow. Dento explains this tunnel hasn't been used in a long
time and can't get the locked door open until Keldeo kicks it down. He
prepares to kick in the next door too and is grumpy when Iris pushes it
open easily as it was not locked. Ash and Keldeo are also both hungry
is pleased to show the old station is now a museum for old
transportation devices. A plan is hatched off-screen. A blimp from
inside the museum is stolen and flies away. Freezios go after it. Iris
is flying the blimp and taunts the Freezios when they finally catch up
and look in, waving happily with Kibago and saying only they are in
there, without Keldeo at all! White Kyurem appears then and cuts her
taunting short. He changes directly from White to Black Kyurem and
attacks, sending the now frozen blimp spiraling out of control.

and Keldeo are walking. Keldeo is amazed as it recalls Iris happily
offering to use herself as live bait to lure Kyurem and the Freezios
away. He talks of his three mentors, how he admires them, and how he
misses them. He recalls how it was explained to him by Virizon that the
only thing to fear is fear itself, and how Cobalion told him it is okay
to lose as long as you learn something from it.
with Dento, he is shown to be powering his train car using Maggyo's
electricity. He continues to speed along and Freezios appear and
attack. He sends out his Iwapress to hold them off, having it use an
attack just as they enter a tunnel. The tunnel is dark and things begin
to freeze in a mist. Black Kyurem attacks and Dento waves again happily
to show he was also just a decoy. Black Kyurem changes to White and
thinks of Dento's sacrifice as well, then asks Ash why he is helping.
Ash answers simply, because they are friends, and it is interesting to
be with Keldeo. They arrive at the old mines, where Kyurem has returned
to and also reverted to his regular self, and Keldeo cannot move
forward suddenly from the terror he feels. He recalls his horn being
snapped over, flashing back to the moment, and trembles and whimpers
uncontrollably. He suddenly admits to Ash that he lied to Kyurem about
being a Sacred Swordsman, and now he will never be forgiven. Ash
decides to go on ahead promising to help free the other three. Keldeo
tries to follow but is frozen with his own fear, standing still as he
shakes and whimpers.
and Dento manage to find one another and head off. Ash, meanwhile,
locates the deer and begins to hack away at their ice tomb with a
crowbar, and with the help of Pikachu's iron tail, Gantoru and Chaobuu.
Kyurem, angered by the intrusion, demands that humans must leave this
place, and Ash shouts back arguments at him that he does not care.
Kyurem is even more angered and attacks, but the attack is blocked by
Keldeo. Ash is ecstatic, saying he knew Keldeo would come, he believed
in him and that he would come to them. Dento and Iris also arrive to
help free the Deers.
admits to Kyurem that he lied, but he did it since he was just so
desperate for their battle. Kyurem is nonplussed, stating he knew
Keldeo was a liar from the start. He creates the gate and arena from
ice once more, daring Keldeo again and demanding they end this. Ash
shouts to Keldeo to be more "resolute"! Keldeo flashes back to his
friends and mentors. He knows he was never alone, that they are the
ones who raised him, and he must not run away!

Kyurem says his new sword - his blue horn - is still not enough, as
they do battle. He becomes Black Kyrem and uses Freeze Bolt, freezing
Keldeo's leg to the ground. Ash has Pikachu use Thunderbolt on Black
Kyurem but Keldeo knocks it away to stop the interference and frees
himself by himself. Finally, with much hacking and melting, the deers
are freed. Ash is shocked as they know his name, but they explain they
heard it all through the ice, and thank him for supporting Keldeo.
Kyurem reverts back to normal form, and the Deers and trio watch, not
remembers the advice of his mentors again: Terrakion's advice to "never
take your eyes off the enemy." Virizion's advice to "defeat your
fears". Cobalion's advice to "learn from your losses". He is able to
get in a hit on Kyurem, and the Deers are proud of him, but still not
sure he can use his sword. Kyurem becomes Black Kyurem and uses Freeze
Bolt. Keldeo is frozen solid by the attack, and the trio and the Deers
are extremely upset by this, until Keldeo manages to break himself
entirely free. His horn becomes a sword longer than his own body length
-- Secret Sword -- and he attacks Black Kyurem with it, and is able to
Kyurem is pleased and grins as he growls this is what he was waiting
for, and NOW this is a real fight! He goes into overdrive and uses
Freeze Bolt again, and Keldeo leaps up, blocking the attack from
hitting Ash, Dento, Iris, and the three Muskedeers. He is hit hard by
the attack and collapses. The dust clears. Black Kyurem steps onto his
horn, holding him down on the ground. Keldeo admits his defeat.
goes back to his normal form then. He is impressed that Keldeo chose to
protect his friends over winning the battle. He compliments Keldeo's
sword and says it is good...then he walks off. Cobalion is proud that
Keldeo has finally understood the importance of the sword.
all the damage sustained, the mines suddenly begins to collapse upon
themselves. The trio ride the deers to safety -- Dento on Terrakion,
Iris on Virizion and Ash on Cobalion -- but Kyurem turns to White
Kyurem and easily freezes the collapsing pieces into place. Rather
nonplussed by the near disaster, he turns back and tromps off into the

stole - to the museum, the four Sacred Swordsman doing their duty
