Best Wishes (Japanese: ベストウイッシュ Besutō Isshui) is the second arc of The Alexis Saga series. The arc surrounds Alexis arriving in Unova with her friends Gary, Morty and Greta, along with meeting new friends Caitlin, Elesa, Chili and Brock as Alexis begins her Unova adventure. It premiered on September 06, 2010 with BW001 and ended on July 22, 2011 with BW055.


After receiving Zorua in the Sevii Islands, Alexis arrived in Unova's Castelia City alongside Gary, Morty and Greta. Bringing the Pokémon back home, she soon met Professor Juniper, the regional Professor, who gave her a Starter Pokémon. Knowing she wanted to begin her own journey, Professor Juniper requested Alexis travel around the region with a Pokédex, filling it up to further her research. She agreed; and Alexis went on her way.

As she officially began her journey, catching and Training new Pokémon for her team, Alexis also met new friends, including mysterious Psychic-type Trainer Caitlin, Striaton City Fire-type Gym Leader Chili, Nimbasa City Electric-type Gym Leader Elesa and finally Kanto Rock-type Gym Leader Brock, as she takes on the Unova Gym Leaders.

But the Gym Leaders aren't the only battle Alexis will have to face - villainous organization Team Plasma and their Senior members the Seven Sages along with the enigmatic N. Both pose as a threat to face against - both with their reasons. But what are there reasons and what do they have to do with Alexis?
