J's Ariados ties up Ash and J takes Pikachu! Jessie, James and Meowth notice this and are willing to steal all the Pokémon J stole. But their attempts go unsuccessful when J's Ariados ties up Jessie and James, just as Jessie calls out her Seviper. J then takes Meowth!

They spot J stealing an Absol and confront her.

The smokescreen from Jenny's Arcanine allows Ash, Jessie and James to grab onto one of J's vehicles. Ash and the Rockets infiltrate J's base. Ash sends Aipom to find Pikachu and Meowth. In the room where J has all the Pokémon she stole, as one of her minions get a recording of them, Aipom finds Meowth and Pikachu and goes back to tell Ash. Ash and the Rockets are quickly spotted by J's minions and make a run for it. J's Drapion captures Ash until Aipom saves him. Ash sends out his Turtwig to battle. Ash, Aipom, Turtwig and the Rockets duck into the vents as J's minions chase them. They enter the room where Aipom found Meowth and Pikachu and they rescue them, and are afterwards confronted. One of J's minions sends out a Golbat.

J's minions are about to recapture all the Pokémon they stole until Jenny ties them up. However, J has not yet been caught.
