==Plot==
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.
 
The scene shifts to show a figure stepping out of a helicopter, revealed to be [[Saturn]], visiting the Veilstone Galactic Headquarters with a mysterious box in hand. He briefs the {{tc|Galactic Grunt|Grunts}} about what their mission is, and then leaves to go to the park where the meteors are held.
 
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.

* This is one of the few episodes (if not the first) to feature a town map with high detail.
* This is also one of the few episodes to feature Team Rocket reciting their motto off screen.
* The dub title is a pun on the word "intergalactic."
* As Team Galactic made their escape, Saturn mentioned the [[Red Chain]] and that their next mission will be at one of the three lakes.
* It is possible that [[Saturn's Toxicroak]] is a [[giant Pokémon]], due to its size comparison with [[Brock's Croagunk]].
* [[Professor Oak's Big Pokémon Encyclopedia]]: [[Ash's Buizel]]
