The police arrive at the crime scene a few hours later. An officer tells Jenny that they have apprehended the thieves. They approach Ash, Misty, Brock and {{AP|Pikachu}}, who are caught in a giant ball of web. Jenny lets them go and explains that they mistook them for The Black Arachnid, a thief that terrorized Catallia City over a hundred years ago. Jenny notices Pikachu and Togepi and asks the team if they’re the professional Pokémon crime fighters her sister from [[New Bark Town]] told them about. Ash complies, andthen asks why the police force uses Spinarak instead of {{pTP|Officer Jenny|Growlithe}}., and Jenny explains to him that it’sit is traditional to use Spinarak in Catallia City. A long time ago, The Black Arachnid ransacked the town. He was known for his stealthiness and his professionalism.Meowth Accompaniedransacked bythe a Meowthtown, they usedusing Pay Day to scare the police off whenever it seemed like they were about to get captured.

A few minutes before midnight, Ash struggles to stay awake. The clock hits twelve, but The Black Arachnid doesn't show up. They mayor rushes in and gives the group a giant meal to celebrate and congratulate them. After they finish eating, the lights go out. Suddenly bottle caps start falling into the room and Team Rocket appears from the ceiling. They announce their arrival with their classic {{motto}}, allowing Ash and his friends to realize that it is Team Rocket impersonating The Black Arachnid. Ash asks how they got in, and they explain that they hid in the attic all day. He then asks why they didn't show up at midnight, and Meowth admits that they fell asleep. James uses Pay Day and escapes with the trophy. Team Rocket gets away in their [[Team Rocket's mechas|Meowth Balloon]], but Spinarak's web stops them. The trio pull out three large fans, and continue their escape. Squirtle uses {{m|Water Gun}}, followed by Bulbasaur’s {{m|Razor Leaf}}, causing the balloon to start losing air. Charizard burns the web with a {{m|Flamethrower}} causing Team Rocket's balloon to spin out of control, and to the mayor's horror, with the trophy still in their possession. Spinarak shoots a stream of web to stop Team Rocket. Charizard {{m|Tackle}}s the balloon, causing Team Rocket to blast off and their cache of loot to fall. Ash tells everyone to catch something. With everyone's hands full, the trophy has yet to be saved. Ash dives in to intercept it, but Spinarak suddenly shoots out a web to catch the treasure, finishing the job.
The next morning, Jenny reports that everything that was stolen has been returned to their rightful owners. She wishes the team the best of luck as they head out of Catallia City. Meanwhile, Team Rocket sobs over their loss. Jessie blames James and Meowth for messing things up, and everyone gets into a brawl.
