Plot: Of COURSE I would miss the ONE thing that I meant to fix in the first place...
At nightfall, a squadron of International Police officers equipped with {{wp|Riot control|riot gear}} 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 team of officers enters the room, informing Looker that the Viridian Gym is empty.
In a follow-up investigation, the International Police is surprised to find out that Giovanni was actually the [[Gym Leader]] of the Viridian Gym. After handing [[Badge]]s to {{ga|Blue|two}} {{ga|Red|Trainers}}, he had simply disappeared. On a hill near [[Viridian City]], Giovanni declares that Team Rocket will never fall and that all Pokémon exist solely for the use of Team Rocket, before walking away. As the episode ends, Looker mentions the rumors about Team Rocket having been disbanded, although the truth is shrouded in mystery.
