While heading to Petalburg City, Ash Ketchum
and his friends met Claire
who was searching for her lost Spinda. Claire
explained that since the first time that she met the Spinda with the heart shape on its forehead, she has had good luck. That's why she has called it her "Lucky Spinda". Claire
continued by saying that she first met it and its owner in a flower garden.
's butler Royce
explained to Ash Ketchum
and his friends that Claire
are engaged to be married. Claire
's Spinda back the day Ash Ketchum
and his friends were out helping search for it. Kain
then gave her the same flower that he gave her the first day they met which touched Claire
that he was able to remember that.
Like most girls that Brock
sees on his travels, he was immediately attracted to Claire
and wanted to do everything he could to help her find her lost Spinda. Even after he realized that she was getting married, he was still determined to help her. As they departed, Brock
wished her well.
