Meanwhile, Jessie had also been a victim of Stun Spore, and James and Meowth also tried to locate the Salveyo weed to help cure her. They tried to steal it from Misty using a variety of techniques, including battling, trying to lure her with dresses, perfume and food, and even dressing up as a woman and her child. In the end, Misty just gave some of the weed to them since she realized all they wanted was to make Jessie better.

Later, in Whichever Way the Wind Blows, Meowth used a medicine made from Salveyo weed in order to cure Jessie and James of the status caused by Vileplume's Stun Spore.
