Gardenia decided to take a walk out to Eterna Forest after taking a break from her duty as the Gym Leader. She often likes to explore the forest and became intrigued about the rumors of the Old Chateau, the mysterious housing Ghost-type Pokémon such as Gastly.
"It's not because I don't check out the Old Chateau because I'm s-scared," Gardenia said and became frightened but pretended to shrug it off. "I'm always busy as a Gym Leader."
A little bit later, her stomach began to growl. She changed her mind about the building and wanted to focus on finding something to snack on.
"I think I need to find a berry around here to eat," Gardenia said looking at her flat tummy. "I bet I can find one in this forest."
Gardenia explored around the area in hopes of finding a delectable berry to eat. Much to her luck, she found a Belue Berry that was sitting nearby one of the trees.
"About time I found one of those very rare Belue berries to snack on," Gardenia said and felt relieved.
She picked up the berry from the ground and held it close to her mouth. She took a bite on it and then ate it all up until it was gone.
"That berry tasted wonderful like anything I ever tasted," she smiled.
Suddenly, she noticed her skin turning blue. She watched herself turn blue all around her body and felt shocked.
"Oh my goodness!" cried Gardenia as she witnessed herself becoming a blueberry.
She then started to expand into a giant blueberry and grew a lot bigger and taller. Her cape and her shirt stretched out on the top part of her body and her belt had snapped off due to the pressure. Her shorts had also ripped partially showing a little bit of her green underwear. Her hands and her feet have all sunken deep into her blueberry body rendering her unable to move or walk.
"I'm so huge that I just happen to became a blueberry," Gardenia said having a nervous look on her face. "I can't even move or walk in this condition," she added and kicked her feet a little and flapped her hands as well.
She felt a little disappointed about her blueberry condition at first but she eventually came around to not minding it.
"I got to admit that feeling like a blueberry is kind of nice," Gardenia giggled. "But I need to roll on back to the Gym so a new upcoming trainer can get the second gym badge from me," she added and proceeded to roll herself out of Eterna Forest.
Gardenia then made it back to her gym safe and sound. She now waits for a trainer to challenge her for the Forest Badge. She smiled about how her break from the gym became a splendid day for her after experiencing her first time becoming a blueberry.
