The volume surrounds Alexis and her friends Caitlin, Elesa and Brock as Alexis continues her Unova adventure. It premiered on August 01, 2011 with BW056 and ended on January 30, 2012 with BW110.


Alexis continues her Unova adventure alongside Caitlin, Elesa and Brock, fighting against the threat of Team Plasma. With 5 badges already acquired, Alexis heads further into Unova to take on the final three, along with strengthening and molding her team for the Unova League.

Caitlin continues her Pokémon Musical endevour, while Brock and Elesa continue to grow and learn from Alexis. Johto Flying-type Gym Leader Falkner arrives in Unova and meets the group - becoming the next travelling partner for the group.

With the groups continued journey, also comes the development of Team Plasma, who's plan becomes more clear as time progresses, and even more encounters between the group and the villainous team - with violent consequences. But with mysterious Trainer N and Seven Sage Leader Ghetsis showing that there efforts are much more personal when concerning Alexis - what is their connection and why do they focus so much on defeating Alexis?
