In a dark cave, {{TRT}} watches a video displaying {{AP|Pikachu}}'s moves and grow even more determined to capture him. They are interrupted by a sharp laugh, and turn around to see a hooded figure accompanied by a {{p|Malamar}} who introduces herself as [[Madame X]]. Malamar shines a bright light over [[Jessie]], [[James]], and {{MTR}}.
{{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} continue to [[Cyllage City]] and notice a radio observatory. Suddenly, a scratched-up Meowth stumbles from the bushes and collapses in front of the group, and Clemont takes a [[Potion]] out of his [[bag|backpack]] to treat him back to health. When Meowth comes to, he thanks them graciously and tells the group, who is skeptical of his intentions, that he came to warn them about danger. He tells the story, beginning with the bright light Malamar used on Team Rocket. Jessie and James shook it off, sent out {{TP|James|Inkay}} and {{TP|Jessie|Pumpkaboo}}, and commanded them to use {{m|Psybeam}} and {{m|Shadow Ball}} respectively. However, the Pokémon were stopped by Malamar's bright light, which turned their eyes blank and brainwashed them, Jessie, and James. Meowth realized that he could remain conscious only by enduring intense physical pain, so he used {{m|Fury Swipes}} on himself and escaped. Meowth warns the children that they must run because Madame X is also targeting Pikachu, but they remain skeptical. Just then, a brainwashed Jessie, James, and {{TP|Jessie|Wobbuffet}} appear behind Meowth, telling him to hurry up and capture Pikachu. The group runs away only to immediately turn into Madame X and Malamar. Malamar uses its bright light, and Meowth warns the children not to look into it. Ash tells Pikachu to use {{m|Electro Ball}}, and the group uses the opportunity to flee, but are stopped by Jessie and James, who look to make Pikachu part of Madame X's Pokémon corps. Pikachu is lifted into the air by Malamar's {{m|Psychic}}, and he and his captor disappear into the distant sky.
