Freshly-Harvested Fresh! Cure Pine is Born!! (とれたてフレッシュ!キュアパイン誕生!! "Toretate Furesshu! Kyua Pain Tanjō!!"?) is the 3rd episode of Fresh Pretty Cure, and also the 245th episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall.


Inori wants to join Love and Miki after feeling lonely without them but is too hesitant. In this time she finds comfort in the dog she is asked to take care of- but after Eas gains control of it will she be able to break out of her shell to protect her friends?


Inori thinks back to the other day when Love was telling her about her dance practice. She was excited bu refused the request to join her, due to her lack of confidence. She recalls watching her friends dance together the previous day, and how she really did wish to join her and Miki, but she's too nervous and tries to make herself forget about it.

Knowing she must change, Inori heads to a church near school to pray. She wants to become more confident but isn't sure how to go about this, and as this is going on the yellow Pickrun watches from overhead. Inori heads off to the park in hopes of finding her friends practice again- but sadly she sees nobody there and heads for home, where she finds her mother and dad, and sees a kid leaving with his dog, Lucky.


Chibi Berry in Miki's mind

Meanwhile, Miki and Love have returned to her home to discuss official pretty cure business. She tells her mother not to interrupt them but doesn't explain why, and once in the room she moves her curtains aside to find Tarte and Chiffon waiting for them. Tarte gives them the gist of what pretty cure is about, but they are mislead into thinking they can become big time hero celebrities until he clarifies that being a Pretty Cure comes with big rules; such as not openly telling other people about it. Before he can say anything else he quickly hides when Love's mother suddenly comes into the room. Love chastises her mother, who is disappointed because she thought she might have a boyfriend. It's then Chiffon awakens and she spots her and asks where she got the "plush doll" from, as she didn't recognize it.

Miki quickly thinks ahead and mentions that she won Chiffon from a crane game earlier. But after she reveals the tarts she made for the girls, she finds Love holding Tarte and struggle to come up with a clear response. She finds Tarte adorable though, and she quickly asks her husband if they can keep him as a family pet. He agrees, making her very happy. 

The next day Love is leaving from school when she finds Miki and they run to the park, where Inori was waiting

to see if they would show up again.

She begins to leave, only to get distracted after Kaoru offers her a donut while telling her of the special he has going on. In order to help her out, he compares her lack of confidence to some donuts he made recently. 

Meanwhile, Love and Miki are in the middle of dance, now inside for the day. They are currently worn out and Miyuki explains how this particular dance was designed for a trio, not a duo. They think about Inori again and leave after changing. They know she wants to join them- but they are afraid to push her knowing she's so shy right now and it would upset her. The best thing to do would be to simply wait until she decides she would like to join them.

As Inori enjoys the view with Lucky and her owner, Inori reminds him that because she's still healing it's best to not let her push herself. However, Lucky runs off into the water while Inori chases after her. They begin to play in the water as the yellow Pickrun watches from above. But unknown to them Setsuna is also watching. She transforms into Eas and approaches them, changing Lucky into a Nakewameke.

Meanwhile Inori is trying to find someone to help while the Pickrun continues to trail above her. She realizes that because she can't find anyone she's going to have to do it herself and runs back to the location. She spots Pretty Cure trying to fight Lucky and attempts to appease her by speaking to her. When this doesn't work she turns to Peach and Berry and asks them not to attack Lucky.

Eas convinces the Nakewamake to continue attacking. Berry and Peach grab onto Inori and pull her away, causing them the fall down and her cellphone to fly out of her pocket. The yellow Pickrun takes advantage of this moment and flies into it, transforming it into a Linkrun and protecting her from the Nakewameke. As the cellphone changes, Tarte notices Chiffon's strange behavior and realizes that the third pretty cure has been located. In a vibrant light, Inori is overtaken by a strange new sensation and transforms into Cure Pine.

After the transformation, Inori quickly realizes who Peach and Berry are, and the trio resume the fight. Pine asks them not to hurt Lucky though, but they tell her that even if she doesn't want to fight, she has to do

something to change her back to normal. They are able to knock her down and when she starts to weaken, Pine unleashes Healing Prayer- healing the dog and returning her to normal.

After this, Eas takes a moment to observe what was going on and takes her leave. The three pretty cure observe Lucky and soon things change back to normal, deciding to head to the Momozono household to chat about what just happened. They notice Inori seems to be very nervous and apprehensive, causing them much surprise after realizing she's frightened by ferrets.

However, Inori decides she is going to join them as Pretty Cure and she decides she is going to join their dance group also, taking this time to reveal that she made them some special dance uniforms.
