'''Enter Galactic!''' (Japanese: '''ステキファッション!その名はギンガ団!!''' ''Lovely Fashion! Their Name is {{tt|Ginga-dan|Team Galactic}}!!'') is the 69th episode of {{series|Diamond & Pearl}}, and the 535th episode of the [[Pokémon anime]]. It first aired in Japan on March 6, 2008 and in the United States on August 9, 2008.
== Synopsis ==
As {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} are preparing to leave [[Veilstone City]], [[Reggie]] takes them to see the meteors of the city. The gang marvel at where the meteors could have come from, as red, green and blue lights appear far overhead. Back at the Pokémon Center, Ash plans the next Gym to go to, with Nurse Joy suggesting Pastoria's Gym.
Meanwhile, {{TRT}} are planning and singing about how they will steal the meteors, until [[James]] points out that trying to lift one, all four ([[Jessie]], James, {{MTR}}, and {{TP|Jessie|Wobbuffet}}) would receive a hernia. They are interrupted by helicopters touching down, while others hover overhead. In the [[Pokémon Center]], Reggie is talking on the videophone with [[Paul]]. Reggie comments to Paul about how Ash is a formidable opponent, which annoys Paul. Back at the meteor field, Saturn steps out of a helicopter, and gets out the box, and opens it to reveal the [[Spear Key]]. In the meteor's presence, the cube-like key hovers and reforms into a different shape, and as this happens, the meteors start glowing and release beams of light into the air. Many people, including Ash, {{an|Dawn}}, {{an|Brock}}, [[Maylene]], and Reggie, take notice. Saturn then radios HQ to run the scrambling. The grunt on the other end complies, and communications and all technology (excluding vehicles and Galactic Equipment) across the city go down. This prompts [[Officer Jenny]] to dispatch forces across the city, while the gang heads over to the hill. En-route, they bump into Maylene and her {{TP|Maylene|Lucario}}, who tells them that [[Connally]] has gone to inform Jenny about what's happening.

While this is happening, [[Team Galactic]] notice Team Rocket, and the Trio start their [[Team Rocket's mottos|motto]], only to be interrupted by a nonchalant Saturn sending out his {{TP|Saturn|Toxicroak}}, who blasts them a short distance with a {{m|Sludge Bomb}}. The gang arrive and suspect the Rocket's to be behind it, to the ire of Jessie. Toxicroak sends a {{m|Dark Pulse}} at them all, and Lucario quickly intervenes with an {{m|Aura Sphere}} which has no effect on Toxicroak. Jenny then arrives, and confronts and reveals who Team Galactic are. At this point, Saturn tells the grunts to release their {{p|Golbat}} to distract the group, in order for the meteors to continue being lifted. The group struggles with the Golbat, until Reggie arrives with {{TP|Paul|Electabuzz}} to help in the fight. While the fight is going on, [[Brock's Croagunk]] and Saturn's Toxicroak are battling, when Team Rocket get in middle of two attacks and end up blasting off. The group take out many of the Golbat after a lucky shot from a combined electric attack by {{AP|Pikachu}} and Electabuzz. Electabuzz becomes surrounded by Golbat, until Pikachu uses {{m|Thunderbolt}} to disperse them, and asks if Electabuzz is OK. One of the Golbat, however, manages to fire off a {{m|Shadow Ball}} at Pikachu, which Electabuzz blocks. The attention turns to the helicopters, and the gang turns their attention to the cables attached to the meteors. Pikachu uses {{m|Volt Tackle}}, supercharged by Electabuzz's {{m|Thunder}} attack, Lucario uses Aura Sphere to cut the cables, and [[Dawn's Piplup]] uses {{m|Whirlpool}} to contain the meteors to protect them. Saturn sighs at the grunts telling him that it's time, and retreats. Pikachu and Lucario send off a Thunderbolt and an Aura Sphere respectively, but the helicopters are too far away.
Ash apologizes for not being able to apprehend them, but Jenny says that everyone is safe, as are the meteors, so it's a job well done. Meanwhile, in the helicopter, Saturn discusses how their next plan is at the lake, as Team Galactic flies into the sunset.
