Training (修行 Training) is the 2nd episode of Pokémon: Twilight Wings.
After losing to Galar’s Champion, Leon, Fighting-type Gym Leader Bea sets out with her Pokémon to elevate their training. Will she find her inner resolve and grow stronger…or will she succumb to the pressure of defeat?
The chairman's assistant has a call from a girl, who wants to train in the wild area for a few days. The girl understands she has to be absent from the Gym for a while. The assistant confirms to Rose that the girl is Bea, who apologizes for the late notice. The assistant understands, while Rose remarks that Bea's loss to Leon must have an impact on her to do better. The assistant hopes she doesn't push herself too hard. The girl, Bea, is flying in the Corviknight taxi, and checks her phone.
Due to the sandstorm, the taxi is tilted and the phone is dropped on the floor. Bea does not notice that, and jumps out of the taxi. The taxi driver asks if it is wise to drop her off in the sandstorm, to which she throws three Ultra Balls, sending out Machop, Machoke and Machamp out. She ignores the driver, and dashes away with her Pokémon, to a meadow. She hears a noise, and finds Leon and Charizard maliciously smiling at her. She snaps out of the fantasy, seeing it is actually a wild Rhydon. She and her Pokémon charge towards Rhydon. The intense training starts, with Bea and her Pokémon doing push-ups with rocks on their backs. She runs with her Pokémon near a lake, and even encounters a Gyarados.
Even as her Pokémon are growing tired, Bea continues her training in the afternoon. Machop offers her a candy bar, which she ignores and continues to push herself further. She even spars with Machamp in unarmed combat, but by accident, she gets injured. In a cave, during a rainstorm, the group sits by a campfire, where Bea bandages her arm. As she finishes, she dares Machamp for another round of combat, despite her hurt arm. Machamp is silent, but suddenly, the cave starts to collapse, blocking the exit and dousing the flame. A moment later, Machop and Bea attempt to push the boulders. Since the boulder does not budge, Bea goes to call for help.
She goes through her backpack, but does not find her phone. In that moment, she realizes she dropped her phone in the taxi. Bea continues to pursue her path by finding another way. Despite this, Machop, Machoke and Machamp are not pleased by Bea pushing herself like this. Despite feeling exhausted, Bea continues on, until she slips and drops down. She is feeling down, until she realizes she is in a cave, filled with many glowing crystals. She realizes her mistake, and apologizes to her Pokémon, for being such a terrible trainer. She remarks by pushing herself like this she won't beat Leon. Machop offers her the same candy bar, which she accepts; she takes a bite, and is quite amazed by the taste.
However, she sees some light reflected from the wrapper. She dashes off, and finds a small hole, and attempts to move the rocks. However, the boulders are too big for her, so her Pokémon come to remove the boulders and save her from getting crushed. As everyone emerges out, they are surprised to see the taxi driver descending down, which makes Bea wonder how did he know they'd be here. The driver gives her the phone back, but asks what is she even doing in this place. Bea looks at her Pokémon, and answers that they were simply staying away from the rain.
As this adventure is finished, a young boy and his Wooloo watch something.
