I'm a Princess!? Cure Flora is Born! (私がプリンセス!?キュアフローラ誕生! Watashi ga Purinsesu!? Kyua Furōra Tanjō!?) is the 1st episode of Go! Princess Pretty Cure and is the 536th episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall.


Haruka moves to the prestigious Noble Academy, where only those with dreams may attend. She befriends her roommate Yui and goes on a tour with her, but afraid of telling others her dream, she tries avoiding it.


The episode begins with a flashback of a young Haruno Haruka, who wants to be a princess, but a couple of boys make fun of her un-realistic dream. As she cries a young boy tells her that she can become a princess if she keeps holding on to her dream. Encouraged, Haruka says she will do her best and he rewards her with a charm to help protect it. He takes off after introducing himself as Kanata, and inspired by this, Haruka decides to keep striving to become a princess.

In the present, Haruka's parents are taking her to Noble Academy, a boarding school that she wanted to attend. With growing excitement she marvels over the size of the school and quickly locates her dorm room. While practicing her curtsy, she is joined by Nanase Yui, her roommate. They share introduces and take off to join the tour of the dormitory, the lesson rooms, as well as how to greet others at the school by saying "gokigenyou".

Along the way she comes across Kaido Minami, the student council President. She also crosses paths with Amanogawa Kirara, who can't find her own room.

Haruka and Yui head outside while discussing the history of the school. Yui explains how it is her dream to become the author of picture books and she asks Haruka about her dream. Before she can tell her it, she quickly stops and distracts Yui, running away afterwards. She runs all the way into the nearby forest and takes out the charm from Kanata. As she puts forth doubt over her dream, a light pink dog pops out of the bushes and trips on one of her ears, scaring Haruka when it begins to talk. Then out of nowhere a small purple bird carrying a chest swoops down from the sky and starts attacking her under the pretense she is trying to hurt his sister. He then introduces themselves as the royal fairies from the Hope Kingdom.

In the distance, Close is seen on a rooftop eavesdropping on them.

Haruka calms down and fixes the puppy's ears while the bird introduces themselves as Aroma and Pafu. As of late the Hope Kingdom has been in dire trouble- but before he can say anything else the sky and forest begins to darken, and the flowers wither as Close appears. Haruka is intrigued when he mentions something known as the "legendary Princess Pretty Cure", but when Yui appears, Close quickly chooses her as his target and locks her dream to summon a Picture Book Zetsuborg. He orders it to attack the group and they begin to run until Haruka, remembering Yui will be left behind in the cage, and she turn around.

The distraction causes Aroma to drop the chest he was holding, and a Princess Perfume falls out. Curiously seeing a keyhole, Haruka demands that Close tells her why he targeted her. He remarks on how worthless dreams are, causing her to take offense before she openly proclaims her own dream of becoming a Princess one day. She reaches for the charm in her pocket when she notices that it's beginning to glow and it changes into a key. Close demands that she hands it over but Haruka refuses. Aroma instructs her on how to use it but she hesitates while they keep Close from reaching her; only for him to easily push them aside.

Seeing this Haruka suddenly gains enough courage to protect them and Yui's dream and she uses the two objects together to transform into the Princess of Flowers: Cure Flora. After she finishes, she is surprised to see what just happened as the sky and flowers begin to spring back to life. Aroma tells her to prepare for the battle, but Flora carelessly stumbles around until she is able to push the Zetsuborg away and overpower it. During a moment of weakness she changes into her Mode Elegant form to use Floral Tourbillon to purify it.

As everything returns to normal, Close teleports away and with her Dress Up Key she unlocks the cage where Yui was restricted. With her dreams freed, Aroma resumes to explain what happened and why they were there to locate the Princess Pretty Cure to help save Hope Kingdom. They are representatives of Prince Kanata; words that shock Flora when she recalls the name. She is surprised to know this was the same boy she met as a child after Aroma shows her a picture of him.
