Nozomi invites Rin to be a Cure

Coco introducing himself

"Kokoda Koji" becomes Nozomi's new teacher

Later at School, Nozomi attempts to convince Rin that she is telling the truth but Rin brushes her off. As Nozomi tries to tell her, she is distracted by their new teacher, who she recognizes as Coco, who is going by the name Koji Kokoda.

Once class ends she confronts him about it, and he explains that he has to reside close to Pretty Cure. As he goes on to explain what the Dream Collet is, and how it can grant any wish that you want, Rin is shown to be eavesdropping on them. He continues on to explain who Nightmare is.

Meanwhile, Girinma gets in trouble with the Board of Directors for failing to capture the Dream Collet, and is sent back to Earth with renewed resolve.

After hearing about the destruction of the Palmier Kingdom, Nozomi vows to gather four other Cures to fight and rushes off, leading him to give chase as Rin remains apprehensive. But upon witnessing him transform when he falls down the stairs trying to catch up with Nozomi, she is shocked learning she was being truthful- but she decides to leave.

Meanwhile, Karen and Komachi come looking for Nozomi, investigating the destruction that went on in the school library the previous day but they are unable to locate her.

Meanwhile, Rin reflects on her long friendship with Nozomi and rethinks her rejection of Pretty Cure, worried for Nozomi's safety. However, Girinma comes and attacks Rin, asking her where the Dream Collet is.

Nozomi explains her friendship with Rin to Coco, and Coco describes Natts to Nozomi, and they talk about what it means to be best friends with someone but their conversation is interrupted by the appearance of a Pinkie.

While they're chasing the Pinkie, they find Rin currently running away from Girinma. Worried for Nozomi's safety, Rin once again tries to convince her to just quit being a Pretty Cure, worried for her safety. Nozomi refuses, saying she must fulfill Coco's wish before transforming into Cure Dream as Girinma creates a Kowaina out of a lamp post.

As a fight breaks out, Urara chases after the red butterfly that has appeared.

While watching the fight, Rin admits that what she's really scared of is losing Nozomi. For her sake she vows to become a Pretty Cure as a means to keep protecting her, and called by her strength of friendship, the red butterfly lands on Rin's left wrist and forms a Pinky Catch. With her instincts guiding her, Rin transforms into Cure Rouge.
