Mother of All Battles (Japanese: バンギラスとヨーギラス! Bangiras and Yogiras!) is the 264th episode of the Pokémon anime. It was first broadcast in Japan on September 5, 2002 and in the United States on September 15, 2003.

Larvitar is finally reunited with its mother, Tyranitar, only to have it stolen by the Pokémon Poacher Brothers. With the competent wickedness of their enemy already seen, it's going to take more than it does against Team Rocket to rescue the Pokémon.

Template:Incomplete synopsis After many days of travel, Ash and friends finally reach the area where their Larvitar was born. They soon encounter a Tyranitar that they recognize from Larvitar’s visions to be its mother. Unfortunately, this Tyranitar mistakes them for the poachers that had stolen her child. Our heroes struggle to convince the mother Tyranitar of their good intentions, but to no avail. Things only get worse when the actual poachers arrive, intent on capturing not only the child, but its mother as well...
