"Owlette of a Kind" (also known as "Bibou, l'oiseau rare" in French) is the first segment of the 20th Season 1 episode of PJ Masks.
By day, Connor, Greg, and Amaya were practicing gymnastics at the school playground. Connor decides to do a forwards roll, but that makes Amaya mad because she says it's "her thing." Then, the teacher announces that the gym mats were missing, which is strange to him. By night, the PJ Masks find out that Romeo stole the gym mats because of his latest invention: the Power Copier. Romeo copies Owlette's powers, but Catboy and Gekko get in the middle of a big boom, and now they have Owlette's powers, too! Every time Catboy and Gekko try to fly, Owlette gets mad at them for using "her powers," so she decides to be selfish. Romeo ends up getting the boys' powers too, and that's when Owlette realizes it's time to let go of her selfishness and share her powers with her friends for the good.
The following characters appeared in the episode "Owlette of a Kind":
The episode starts off with the class preparing for gymnastics. Amaya is about to show Connor and Greg her gymnastics move: a forwards roll, when Connor shows that he knows it already through his performance. She becomes upset since it was supposed to be her move. She asks the teacher if he can show her how to do a cartwheel. He responds that he needs to find the gym mats first, which disappeared from the shed. The paintbrushes and balls are also gone. Later that night, the PJ Picture Player shows Romeo standing outside the school building.
The PJ Masks arrive at the location to see that Romeo must have gone inside. There is a trail of the missing equipment leading to the classroom. Behind the teacher’s desk is Romeo spying on the team with a new invention; he has set up a trap for them to trigger in order to help him take over the world. As they collect the stolen equipment, however, they closely pass by its range a few times.
An impatient Romeo is prompted to reveal himself. Owlette advances towards him, though he traps her when she approaches the trap’s range and apparently takes away her powers. He uses it on himself once the trap reconnects with the remote. The invention is revealed to be the Power Copier, which can copy anyone’s powers and transfer them to him. Stealing the school equipment was just to get the team to his location. However, Romeo is not the only one who has Owlette’s powers; Catboy and Gekko have also acquired them while trying to catch him.
Owlette begins advancing towards Romeo when Catboy bumps into her, then both into Gekko when trying to do so as well. Romeo flies away, but not before stating that he’ll be back to also copy Catboy and Gekko’s powers. While Catboy and Gekko unsteadily fly out of the school, Owlette is annoyed that everyone has her powers when she should be the only one to have them. The boys look on the bright side because not only have they never flown before, the whole team can use them together to quickly defeat Romeo.
The team searches the city. As they do so, much to Owlette’s shock, Catboy and Gekko use her Owl Eyes to scan for Romeo, albeit also not knowing how to use it properly. They only find a few random animals and objects. Owlette grows more annoyed at the boys using her powers, trying to convince them to use their own to search the town. She is about to criticize how they’re improperly using them until she bumps into a chimney and gets her cape stuck. The boys pull it out as Romeo flies past them.
Owlette tries asking the team again to use their own powers instead of hers since they’re her thing, only for them to respond with the same answer from earlier, having fun with them, and ask her how to use them and perform a few tricks. She reluctantly gives in. The team follows Romeo to the top of the buildings, but quickly realize that he’s set up a trap when they notice a blinking red light behind him. Catboy and Gekko cannot stop since Owlette didn’t teach them how to. Romeo copies their powers, transfers them to himself, and places the boys on a couple of chimneys.
Romeo quickly flies off now that he has copies of all the PJ Masks’ powers to help him take over the world. Owlette apologizes for her jealous behavior towards her friends using her powers, which got in the way of stopping him. Catboy and Gekko also apologize for getting excited about having them to the point where they got carried away. It’ll have to take teamwork to defeat the superpowered Romeo, but before the team can do so, Owlette offers to help them how to properly use them.
A montage plays out as Catboy and Gekko learn to control Owlette’s powers. They start off shaky, but over time, they improve with her assistance. At the same time, after Owlette stops worrying about them using her powers, she realizes how much fun it is to share them with them. The boys thank her for her help, becoming more excited to use them now that they have better control.
The team catches up with Romeo, who unintentionally reveals that to release the copied powers from everyone, they will have to break the Power Copier. He utilizes Gekko’s powers to throw a car, then a trash can lid at them. With Owlette’s directions, as they avoid the objects, Gekko catches the car, and Catboy deflects the lid back towards Romeo. They surround him before he attempts to escape with Catboy’s powers.
Together, the team uses Owlette’s Owl Wing Wind to blow the invention away. Romeo is unable to counter the effects with Catboy’s Super Cat Speed and Gekko’s Super Lizard Grip, gets blown into a trash pile, and drops the Power Copier. It breaks, reversing its effects on everyone who has the copied powers. Romeo makes his getaway, leaving the team to proclaim their victory.
The next day, all of the stolen equipment is placed back in the school shed. Amaya meets up with Connor and Greg and asks the former if he wants to try the forwards roll again as it’s not just her move. They perform the forwards roll together and fall on the ground. Greg follows suit with a similar result, and the three kids share a good laugh together.
