Ash had already passed the Victors League and Dawn had already passed the Grand Festival. Brock was still on his quest to become the best breeder. All four, including Pikachu, had traveled back to Canalave City.
"Why are we here again? I'm soooooooo hungry!" complained Ash.
"We came to welcome someone special, remember?" reminded Dawn.
"Who is this 'someone special' again?" Ash asked.
Dawn giggled."You'll see when the boat gets here!" she teased.
"Here it is now!" said Brock, pointing at the arriving boat. All four saw many figures on the boat. One was at the very front. It waved. "Hiya, Dawnsy!" it screamed. Ash, Brock and Pikachu all tried to hold back laughs.
Dawn steamed. "What's so funny?" she screamed.
"N-nothin', 'Dawnsy'!" teased Ash as the three fell out laughing. The boat came into much closer view as Dawn hit her friends.
As people started to get out of the boat and crowd the boat stop, a girl who had two spikes of hair on each side of her head and a hat like Dawn's approached Ash, Brock, Dawn and Pikachu.
"Hiya Dawnsy! Miss me?" she said. As Dawn settled down and the others cringed, Dawn introduced the girl.
"Guys, this is Alex, my twin sister."
