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

Outside the Tin Tower, Sham, Carl, and Team Rocket Grunts appear. The Team Rocket Grunts send out Cubone, Drowzee, Ledian, and a Ninetales to attack Gold and Polibo. Silver tells Gold that Team Rocket caused the earthquake. Carl then recognizes Silver, and tells the Grunts to attack Silver too, but the Pokémon that try are knocked out by Gold and Exbo. Carl's giant Piloswine appears, and attacks Gold and Silver. When Gold tells Polibo to use Water Gun, Polibo does nothing.

Silver lets Gold battle the Team Rocket Grunts, while he battles the Piloswine. Piloswine chases Silver, who is Flying on his Murkrow to dodge. However, with the power of liquefaction and Polibo's Whirlpool, Piloswine is defeated. Then Carl notices that Gold has defeated the Team Rocket Grunts' Pokémon. Sham then says that their mission is complete, so they can retreat. After Team Rocket retreats, Gold and Silver trade again. Then, Gold challenges Silver to a battle.

Meanwhile at the evacuation shelter, some doctors are taking care of Jasmine. She tells them about Gold and Silver rescuing her, but they do not believe her. Elsewhere, in Ecruteak City and Gold and Silver get ready to battle.

Pokémon debuts






  • Carl says that Silver foiled Team Rocket's plans back at New Bark Town's Slowpoke Well. However, the Slowpoke Well is located in Azalea Town, not New Bark Town.
  • While running from Piloswine, Silver said that Piloswine was the only Pokémon that possesses both Water and Ice attacks. However, this is not true, since many Pokémon from Generation I could use both Water- and Ice-type moves. What he probably meant was that Piloswine was the only Pokémon that could use both Ice- and Ground-type moves.
    • Both of these errors were fixed in the digital volume release by VIZ Media as well as in the Brazilian Portuguese translation.
