Plot

201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201

Yellow appears ready to battle the Team Rocket Elite Trio. But then four of Yellow's Pokémon scatter and are blocked by Team Rocket's Pokémon. Ken says that he is ready to have a "little battle". Ken shows Yellow that his Voltorb and Electrode are faster than Yellow's Doduo, surprising Yellow. Al's Slowpoke uses Confusion on the S.S. Anne again and Yellow starts to worry more about the passengers of the ship than himself. Dody uses Whirlwind and all of Yellow's Pokémon, except for Dody and Pika, disappear. Al's Slowpoke gives the ship one final Confusion, and every passenger (except Yellow) falls down into the ocean, while the Team Rocket Elite Trio is lifted up into the air.

Then a strange thread wraps around the passengers. It's Kitty's String Shot! The thread is as good as lifesavers! The passengers of the S.S. Anne swim back to Vermilion City. Team Rocket seem to be ready for a possible counterattack, but their legs are frozen from Omny's Ice Beam! Due to a misjudgment of Al's, Team Rocket falls into the sea, but swim up to the surface. Harry has his Ekans and Weezing attack with poisons, pushing Yellow off the S.S. Anne. Fortunately, Gravvy is there to catch Yellow. Pika gives Ekans and Weezing a fatal ThunderShock. Then Team Rocket finds that the S.S. Anne is cut in two because of Ratty's teeth and Gravvy is holding the two parts of the ship, with Yellow on top. With the threat of half a ship over them, the Team Rocket Elite Trio is forced to surrender.
