伝説のポケモン・サンダー登場!早速バトルを挑むサトシとゴウだが、全く歯が立たず…そこに現れたのはロケット団!サンダーをゲットするのは誰だ!?

いい天気の中、サクラギ研究所でかき氷を楽しむサトシたちに、突然巨大な雷雲が迫る。強い生体エネルギーが感知され、なんと伝説のポケモン・サンダーが近くに来ている可能性があることがわかる!サクラギ研究所周辺が停電をくり返す中、ゴウの“ひらめき”で向かったとある場所に、サンダーの姿が!早速バトルを挑むが、歯が立たない2人。そこに居合わせた思わぬ「助っ人」と協力して、レイドバトルをすることに!!

Japanese Summary Translation:

The Legendary Pokémon Thunder appears! Satoshi and Go immediately challenge it to a battle, but Thunder proves to be way too much for them... But then, someone appears! It's the Rocket Gang! Who will get Thunder?!

It's a nice day, but as Satoshi and the others are enjoying some snowcones at the Sakuragi Laboratories, a huge thunderstorm suddenly draws close. And once they sense the presence of powerful biological energy, they realize it's possible the Legendary Pokémon Thunder might actually be nearby! And as the areas surrounding the Sakuragi Laboratories keep losing power, Go gets a sudden flash of insight. When they head to the place he thought of, they find Thunder there and immediately challenge it to a battle, but Thunder proves to be way too much for the duo. However, they decide to have a Raid Battle against it, working together with some "helpers" they truly didn't expect to be there!!
