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 feels left out when Miki and Love spend their time with dance practice and wishes to join them - but is too shy. She finds comfort taking care of a dog owned by a young boy and learns to break out of her shell after it gets taken over by Eas.


Inori thinks back to the other day when Love was telling her about the news revolving her dance practice. Inori seemed excited but due to a lack of confidence she refused the offer. Then she thinks about how she stood watching them later that day, and how she really did want to dance with Love and Miki, but she's too nervous.

Because of this, Inori heads to a church nearby her school to pray and insist this is why it's so important that she changes herself. She wants more confidence but isn't so sure she can get it. As she does this, the yellow Pickrun watches from overhead and soon Inori leaves to go to the park to see if Love and Miki are practicing, but she sadly doesn't find them, then heads 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 because of this. He explains that there are rules to being pretty cure and how wrong they are in thinking they can just openly let others know about it. But before he can say anymore, he is forced to hide when Love's mother suddenly comes inside.

Love scolds her mother, who assumes she has a boyfriend.

Suddenly, Chiffon begins to wake up and she asks Love where she got the plush doll. Luckily, Miki covers for her by saying she had won Chiffon in a crane game earlier. With that she reveals the tarts she brought up for Love and Miki, only to see Tarte being held by Love. They are unable to give her a clear response, but because she thinks Tarte is adorable, Love's mother asks her father if they could keep him as a pet. He accepts, which makes her very happy.

The next day Love is leaving from school. She finds Miki reading near town and they run to the park where Inori is waiting to see if they show up again. She begins to leave,

only to be distracted by Kaoru who offers her a donut while telling her he has a special going on. In order to help her out, he compares her lack of confidence to some donuts he made. 

Meanwhile, Love and Miki are in the middle of dancing, inside today. They are very worn out and Miyuki explains that the dances were designed for a trio, not two people. Which makes them think about Inori some more while they leave sometime later. They know she wants to join them, but she's just so shy right now that they know if they just push her it will only make her upset. So they decide the best thing to do is just to wait for her to decide when she wants 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, just as Inori goes on to reveal what animal she's afraid of. Which interrupts and before they know what's happening, she changes Lucky into a  proceeds to change Lucky into a Nakewameke. As Lucky causes destruction all around and everyone runs from the area

Love and Miki find everyone running around in a panic and when the find the dog Nakewameke, they run into hiding to change into Cure Peach and Cure Berry.

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 finds Berry and Peach attacking Lucky and Inori is able to speak to her, trying to calm her down.

She asks them not to hurt Lucky and it seems to work, but suddenly, 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!

After she changes, Inori is quick to realize that Peach and Berry are really Love and Miki. With that, the trio resume fighting the Nakewameke, but Cure Pine tells them not to hurt Lucky. She is convinced that even if
