Chasing everyone into the back room, Koffing and Ekans accompanyaccompanied their Trainers in intimidating the others, which causescaused Misty to decide to battle Team Rocket. This iswas a failed effort, however, as both of them managemanaged to catch up to Ash in no time at all. Just thenHowever, [[Nurse Joy]]'s {{p|Pikachu}} came out and healed Ash's Pikachu with a {{m|Thunder Shock}} attack, while at the same time attacking the [[Team Rocket trio]]. Giving Ash's Pikachu enough power to stand up, Ash charged- up Pikachu using Misty's charred bike, and he let him haveuse his own Thunder Shock. As the group are beingwere electrocuted, Koffing releases a stream ofused {{m|Smog}} from one of the craters on its body, and the electricity climbsclimbed up the toxic gas, causing the entire Pokémon Center to explode, and sending Team Rocket blasting off for the first time.
