After capturing a Red Gyarados, Tyson and his cohorts travel back to Mahogany Town to continue their studies on the Gyarados, so they can perfect their Evolution Inducement Ray. Lance, disguised as a Team Rocket member, stops following the others and makes a call to Officer Jenny in Mahogany Town to inform her of Team Rocket's hideout. After the call ends, Lance heads back to the Lake of Rage.

After being captured by Tyson, Ash yells to be let out of the cell, and Jessie and James say that they're in charge of guarding the door. Finally, Pikachu and Togepi wake up, but when Ash asks if Pikachu could break down the cell with a ThunderShock, Ash finds that he's still too weak to do any damage. With Pikachu now awake, Jessie and James say that they're now going to take him to the boss. Ash, Misty, and Brock hold their ground, but Jessie sends out Arbok with a Poison Sting to break them up. Jessie tries to unlock Pikachu's restraint, but accidentally unlocks all of their restraints, allowing Ash to send out Cyndaquil with a Smokescreen. After the smoke clears, Jessie, James, Arbok, and Wobbuffet find that they have been put into the restraints.

Now feeling better, Meowth joins Jessie and James on the chase for the twerps. Arbok uses a Poison Sting to stop them and then Jessie orders Arbok to wrap them, but Arbok is blown away by Lance's Dragonite's Dragon Rage. Arbok tries to use Acid, but Dragonite's Twister sends them blasting off.

Lance tells the kids that the Evolution Inducement Ray has to be destroyed, so he hits it with Dragonite's Hyper Beam. Immediately afterward, Lance and the others get in the car and drive to Mahogany Town.

Tyson receives a call from Jessie and James telling him that the machine had been destroyed. Jessie and James order a 50-man backup, but Tyson hangs up on them. While transporting the Gyarydos via helicopter, the Evolution Inducement Ray wears off on the Gyarydos, causing it to use Thrash and making the helicopters crash into the water. The Gyarydos swims away, and while driving beside the water, Ash spots it. Ash gets out to possibly calm the Gyarydos, but Gyarydos shoots a Hydro Pump at him. Lance orders Dragonite to calm the Gyarydos, but Tyson pulls up and orders his men to follow the Gyarydos while he stays behind. Ash, Misty, and Brock run after the Gyarydos despite Lance's orders. Tyson challenges Lance to a battle, but Lance easily defeats Tyson's two Fearow with his Dragonite. Officer Jenny comes and arrests Tyson for violating conservation laws.

Once again, Team Rocket captures Gyarydos with a net and shocks it into submission. They pull it out of the river, but Ash sends out Bayleef with a Razor Leaf to cut the net. A grunt tries to catch the kids with a net, but Gyarydos's Hyper Beam blows the grunts away. Ash tells Gyarydos to go back to the river, but Jessie and James show up in the Meowth Balloon and catch Gyarydos with another net. Ash jumps and grabs onto the net to save the Gyarydos, but Meowth tries to shake him off unsuccesfully. Gyarydos uses Thrash again and breaks the net free from the balloon. Gyarydos continues down the river, but Team Rocket say they'll catch Pikachu anyway, but Pikachu easily defeats Arbok and sends Team Rocket blasting off with a ThunderBolt.

The trio continue following the Gyarydos who is using Hyper Beam along the river side. Because Gyarydos is heading straight for the center of town, Ash needs to do something quick. Ash tries to talk the Gyarydos into becoming calm, but Gyarydos tries to attack them with Hyper Beam. Pryce appears and orders his Dewgong to use Ice Beam, stopping Gyarydos from going any further. Pryce tells them that Pokemon and humans are not meant to be friends, and it's putting them in danger, but Gyarydos turns away and goes into the opposite direction; Ash and his friends follow.

Down the river, Lance's Dragonite is trying to fight the Gyarydos. Eventually, with Thunder Wave, Twister and Hyper Beam, Gyarydos faints, and Lance captures it with a PokéBall.

The episode ends with Team Rocket being sent to jail, and Lance flying off on his Dragonite with the trio wave goodbye.
