<i>On the way to the Battle Pike, Ash and his friends spot some strange and stormy weather nearby. What's more, an irritable Elekid is busy zapping all the local Pokémon!

Max then spots Mime Jr. in the path ahead, heavily injured, as Team Rocket sits atop a tree stump. [[James]] is increasingly worried about Mime Jr. and as soon as Jessie or Meowth mentions anything about the Egg, James fills with anger. Meanwhile, Ash and everyone is caring for Mime Jr. as it recovers from its injuries. Everyone is excited with Mime Jr.'s recovery as the search continues for May's Egg. Elekid crosses their path again as May notices that the Egg is not lodged between Elekid's ears now. Phanpy and Pikachu interrupt as Elekid begins the battle with a devastating Thunder Punch. Both Pikachu and Phanpy evade this attack as Phanpy responds with a Rollout, but is quickly sent flying backwards by Elekid's electrical energy. The battlefield erupts with a giant plume of smoke and dust with Elekid now gone from the area.
 
Team Rocket is still searching for Mime Jr. as an electrical disturbance sparks nearby and Elekid appears from the nearby underbrush. As James tries to dash towards Elekid, Jessie restrains him and Elekid dashes forward with another Thunder Punch sending Team Rocket blasting off again. In another location, everyone else is searching for May's Egg. Brock then recalls in the past with Pikachu being overcharged with electrical energy and notes that Elekid is in the same condition. A bolt of lightning erupts into the nearby ground as another bolt erupts from the sky and electrifies Pikachu. Pikachu begins the battle with a {{m|Thunderbolt}} as then a strange {{TP|Team Rocket|mecha|mechas}} comes thundering from the distance with Team Rocket setting the usual scene. May identifies that James has her Egg while James notices that May has Mime Jr. James then rushes down as May and James trade for Mime Jr. and the Egg. James then returns to the mecha as a net is launched from the mecha with Pikachu dodging and electrifying the mecha.
 
The electrical charge is diverted as Phanpy rushes towards the mecha and thrusts into the mecha. Three bombs are then launched from the mecha as Phanpy deflects these with its {{m|Defense Curl}}. The mecha then attacks knocking Phanpy backwards while Elekid interrupts the battle. Elekid then tries to use Thunder as Pikachu then jumps atop Elekid and both Pokémon's Thunder is combined. The electrical gauge within the mecha slowly increases as Elekid and Pikachu increase the power which sends the mecha's storage power off the charts. As the meter reaches into the danger zone, Team Rocket's mecha explodes and is sent backwards. As the dust and smoke clears, Elekid's ailment seems to have been cured. Ash then tells Phanpy to use a Rollout attack to stop Team Rocket from obtaining Elekid and Pikachu but is sent flying backwards again. A mysterious light overtakes Phanpy's body as the [[evolution]]ary process begins to take place and Phanpy evolves into {{AP|Donphan}}. Donphan then rolls towards Team Rocket one last time with this force knocking Team Rocket's mecha towards the ground. Donphan then finishes the battle with a {{m|Hyper Beam}} sending Team Rocket blasting off into the sky for their third and final time.
 
With Elekid now returned to normal, everyonethe givesgroup bids Elekid an honorable departure as Ash inches ever so closer to the next big adventurefarewell.
