Plot: SWAT is a bit presumptuous
At the [[International Police]] base, a search for the location of the [[Team Rocket]] Boss [[Giovanni]] is underway. An agent informs [[Looker]] how Team Rocket has taken over [[Kanto]] region's underworld, and is suspected for illegally poaching and trafficking Pokémon. A successful raid was executed at the [[Celadon Game Corner|Celadon City Game Corner]] controlled by Team Rocket, recovering all the Pokémon held captive there. Also, Team Rocket's plans to take over the [[Silph Co.]] were reported to have been thwarted. All the {{tc|Team Rocket Grunt}}s arrested by the police have been both incapable and unwilling to tell anything about Giovanni's future plans. Suddenly, one of the agents informs Looker that they've finally discovered Giovanni's location: the [[Viridian Gym]].
At nightfall, a squadron of International Police officers equipped with {{wp|SWATRiot control|riot gear}} officers arrive at the Viridian Gym. Looker orders the men to surround the Gym in three-man teams, taking two men with himself to the front door. Knowing that Giovanni is an experienced [[Pokémon Trainer]], Looker advises his men to take caution. One of the officers sends out a {{p|Magnemite}}, which quickly breaks through the front door's electronic lock. Through his commlink, Looker orders all teams to move forward, as he and his men rush through the front door and spread out. One team breaks through the wall with the help of their {{p|Machamp}}, while another team uses their {{p|Arcanine}}'s {{m|Flamethrower}} to melt a hole into the wall.
Rushing through the Gym with a {{p|Growlithe}}, Looker is confused about why Giovanni would be here, as the Viridian Gym was supposed to be have been closed off. He and Growlithe arrive at the door that leads to the battlefield, and after a few seconds of preparation, they rush in, only to find an empty room. Looker examines the floor, seeing recent traces of an explosion. A SWAT team enters the room, informing Looker that the Viridian Gym is empty.
