Template:Incomplete synopsis The episode starts with a Galactic grunt being attacked by Golbat. Then, a Skuntank and Jupiter appeared. The grunt took off his mask, revealing to be Looker. After Skuntank was about to use Slash, there was an explosion. Then, the screen shows Floaroma Town where Forsythia and her Roserade and Lotad watering flowers. In the Pokémon Center, the gang are watching television, learning that the next Pokémon contest will be held in Asatsuki Town, under a Double Performance. Ash and the gang was on Route 205, then Pikachu and Piplup saw something in the flowers. They saw that it was Meowth.

Meowth told them what had happened while Brock heals him with Potion. Team Rocket was walking, feeling hungry, when they saw Hunter J's airship. They chased after it and arrived at a factory, the Fuego Ironworks. Brock checked on his PokéGear. Team Rocket climbed a ladder and saw Jupiter and a man. Ash and the gang realized that it is Looker. Then, it shows the things earlier and Skuntank about to use Slash. A Vine Whip stopped its attack. It was James's Carnivine! Skuntank managed to break free and Jupiter commands the Golbat to attack. That was when the explosion occurred. Jupiter's Skuntank attacked Jessie and James while Golbat attacked Meowth. Then, Meowth was blast off. After bandaging Meowth, it went away. Piplup and Pikachu caught up with him but Meowth wants to use Scratch at them. Then, Meowth cried.

Back at the Fuego Ironworks, Jessie, James and Looker was caught inside of a room. Jessie saw something on the floor outside the room. It was Jupiter's Skuntank. It looked away after looking at Jessie. Then, Jessie wants to attack it but as she was about to touch the door, Looker warned her but Jessie was soon shocked by electricity.

Major events


Pokémon debuts






  • Jupiter states that she knew that Ash, Dawn, and Brock had seen Azelf, Mesprit, and Uxie, respectively. While it is likely that Cyrus told her of Ash and Dawn's encounters with the legendary Pokémon, Brock encountered Uxie long after this.
  • After Jessie was electrocuted by the trap in the cell door, the Skuntank guarding the cell was shown laughing up against a wall identical to that of inside the cell (made of stone). However, in the shot before, it was up against a normal looking, smooth wall.
