Malamar (anime)

History: Should probably mention why Meowth wasn't hypnotized (although I don't get how that prevents it though).

{{p|Malamar}} first appeared in ''[[XY019|A Conspiracy to Conquer!]]''. It hypnotized an [[Officer Jenny]] who went to investigate at a radio observatory. As a result, she became Madame X. Together, the two went to a dark cave where {{TRT}} were and hypnotized them, save for {{MTR}}, who used {{m|Fury Swipes}} on his own face. With Team Rocket in tow, Malamar found the whereabouts of {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} by a tree. It took Pikachu with them and forced him to be under their control. By the time Ash, his friends, and Meowth arrived in the observation chamber of the radio observatory, Malamar cruelly took control of {{an|Clemont}}, {{an|Bonnie}}, and {{an|Serena}}. The Automatic Pikachu Retrieving Device that Clemont built earlier entered the observatory and crashes into Malamar, breaking its control over everyone it hypnotized. Officer Jenny went back to normal and explained what happened. Malamar revealed that it tricked them into believing that Madame X was a real person and it was using her as its pawn. Malamar also revealed that Madame X's goal of taking over the world was a lie and hopes to reconstruct the world using a mind control machine. Angered at Malamar's lies and dishonesty, Ash, Officer Jenny and the gang went after Malamar who led them to a room containing the system of great significance. Since everyone saw what Malamar was doing, it destroyed the mind-control device that it was building and fled.

Malamar reappeared in ''[[XY054|Facing the Grand Design!]]'' where it had recruited two other Malamar in a plan to distort the world using energy crystals. Malamar and the other two hypnotized the top scientists in Kalos to build the energy crystals. Afterwards, they recklessly drove trucks with the crystals to the [[Grace Tower]] to get their plan in action. When Team Rocket went to the top of Grace Tower, the Malamar trio spotted them after {{TP|James|Inkay}} became furious at the one particular Malamar for what it did to them previously. Malamar was unable to find the Team Rocket trio after they fled.
