He enter to see Fairy and Grape fighting but stopped by Sally. Than Po enter to tell that it's been 15 years since they first met. Which shock everyone except Princess.

A few miles away we see Coco, A Solagleo name Stan, a Lunala name Lucy, and a Cosmog name Fast headed to the hill but was interrupted by Mosa, Trike and Poke-man before the image of Necro appered and warned them that they have 2 weeks before it destroys the world. But before Coco, Lucy, Stan and Fast react, Cat, Brute and Nelly appears and the ultra beast attacks the legendary's, causing a fire. Back at the tunnel Fairy spot the fire and the gang head to the area where they see The Legendary fighting the ultra beast. Meanwhile, Idris and his friend Ryan was also heading to the area, but was interrupted by Necro. Meme and the gang help the legendaries beat the ultra beast but saw Princess using aqua jet on Necro to save Idris and Ryan but was knocked unconscious. Meme seeing his friend getting close to death, he use his wooden arrow to distract Necro but the arrow glowed and the attack damage a bit of Necro's metal Body. Idris got angry at Meme since he should save Princess before interrupted by Coco calling him a guy with no friends. Idris and Ryan left but were kidnapped by Brute and Trike.

Coco than recognize Meme which confused him but explained that he know his parents. Before Coco tells Meme about The Ultra Beast, Meme collapsed seeing an image of Necro In the flames with a young Meme looking at it. He awoke at his cave with Princess, Po and Coco inside. Meme explained that he has a vision of Necro heading to him when he was a Rowlett. Coco was surprised that he knows that Necro was involved in his family's demise. Coco than asked Meme how his wooden arrow damage Necro but fell asleep in the progress. The next day Coco tells Meme again about the arrow but the Decidueye does not know. So Coco ask if he can learn Sprit Shackle or any other move with an arrow which got Meme confused before Sally explained what it is. Coco asked Meme if he tried. Meme said no. Coco explained how to do it. Meme than use his wings to form an arrow base pose and a magic Bow and Arrow appeared. Meme fired it at Princess's bubble and it splashed on her, Grape and Fast. Meme was surprised. Meanwhile, Idris and Ryan is stuck on the Ultra Beast's hideout where Necro ask them any info on Meme and the gang.

The next day Fairy sighted that The Ultra Beast are coming back so the gang got prepare. Lucy however told Coco if they are ready before Grape interrupted saying that he's not ready. Cat, Trike, Nelly and Poke-Man was the first to arrive. Po charged at Poke-man but was smacked by Brute who came with Mosa. The gang took on each one and won but stopped when their Cave exploded. Meme notice that Fast was inside so he, Sally and Stan went inside and save the Cosmog before Princess and Grape freeze and wet the fire. Seeing the cave destroyed Meme charged at The Ultra beast before he got smacked by Idris. The Incineroar tells Ryan to help him but the Lycanroc says no giving Princess time to use Moonblast on Idris with Po using Crunch on him. The Ultra beast, Idris and Ryan teleported out with the voice of Necro saying mission complete. Meme blames himself for the cave's damage and almost kill himself with his own arrow but was stopped by Princess saying that his family is still alive (Meaning her, Fairy, Po, Sally and Grape) Meme stopped and apologise. Coco then ask why he did not fly when he saved Fast. Meme finally explaned that he can't not fly. The Tapu Koko than tells the gang that this is more than a destroy the world nonsense, it's war. He than tells them that he have to tell the other Tapus about what's going on. He than tells the Gang to head to a big cliff where they hopefully see The Ultra Beast's hideout since Coco and one of the Tapus, Tsunami went their before. The gang agreed and went to sleep ready for the trip but not before Princess ask Sally and Fairy if she can talk to them while Meme ask Po and Grape the same thing.

In the hideout Idris was mad at Ryan for not helping him kill Meme but Ryan said that his bully side of him is getting out of hand. Idris snapped and grabbed Ryan's neck. Ryan said that He wish that the kind hearted Idris see what Meme is because he revealed to the Incineroar that he's jealous of Meme of having a lot of friends and also tells him to give up trying to get Princess to love him since to the Lycanroc thinks that the Primarina has a crush on Meme. Idris got more angry he snapped Ryan's neck, killing him. When Idris calmed down he saw Ryan's body and find out that he killed him. Necro came to say well done to him and said that it's time, The Next Day Meme and the gang sets off to the cliff with Coco heading off. After saying goodbye to Stan, Lucy and Fast who decided to join Coco, The gang headed off. It took them nearly all day to reach the top while Idris trains for his battle while he is in tears. The Gang reach the top at midnight but both Princess and Meme was still awake. Princess decided to ask Meme if he can take a walk with her which got Meme to blush. They then headed to the mouth of the cliff where Meme decided to jump off. Meme than close his eyes to think of flashback of his family and Coco and the legendary's before he flew like a sonic boom just over the water and flew up. Princess was surprised to see Meme finally flying before Meme picked her up in air and together dived into the water where there had their first kiss. The Decidueye and Primarina are now together.

Coco and the Legendary's reach the Tapu Temple where Coco bump into Tsunami and the other Tapus Sparkle and Bull. Coco tries to tell them to help but the tapus (manly Bull) Reject him. But when Lucy mentioned Meme's name, Sparkle gasped, seeing a vision of Meme and Princess sleeping together. Coco explains about Meme and how he came to be. Bull came to Coco and he agreed with Tsunami hugging him. The next Day Meme and the gang head to the hideout. Grape, Fairy and Princess goes upstairs where Meme, Sally and Po head downstairs. Mosa and Brute came to Princess and her team but was interrupted by Bull while Tsunami and Sparkle use their power to stop the rest of the ultra beast. Coco, Stan, Lucy and Fast came to the gang. The Ultra Beast had enough and not the gang fight the beast, With Meme taking on Trike, Princess on Nelly, Po on Brute, Sally on Mosa, Grape on Poke-Man and Fairy on Cat. The gang did defeat the Beast but not before Necro game and used Hyper beam on them. Bull charged at it but was stopped by Idris's flamethrower.

Meanwhile, Necro and the Ultra Beast is ready to destroy and conquer the world. Idris now closing his eye after Meme slashed it then headed off to find and bury Ryan before the battle since his friend's body was kept on a box but not before he hears ryan's voice to avenge yourself and be who you should be. Idris knows what to do and head off to the Ultra Beast power source undetected. Meme arrived to the castle and use his hood to hide from the beast before he bumped into Idris. Meme pushed him into the wall but dropped him when Idris said that we was mindless as Necro took over him and let his anger kill his only family.

Necro summon his machine and was set to put it on Stan and Lucy but was stopped by Meme who flew at him push it through the wall and into the roof. Meme then gets ready for one final fight and took on Necro but was defeated. When Necro was about to kill Meme, it was stopped by Idris Who threw Po to the Necrozma before Grape used Ice Beam to freeze it while Sally, Fairy and Princess use Sludge bomb, Thunderbolt and Moonblast. Necro escape from the freeze and the attack and used his foot to create a fissure. Meme pushed everyone out of the way with the floor crack in the middle separating them. Meme tells to Princess to run but the Primarina don't want to lose her love, Fairy used Psychic to lift them to have their supposed final kiss, but Idris got angry at Fairy because she could lift them all to help Meme but Fairy said that he's too fat and Po Celebrated before running away.
