Cyndaquil lands on the ground headfirst. When it gets up, a swelling grows on its nose, making it a bit weak. Team Rocket pokes fun at Cyndaquil for a while and then James tells Weezing to use {{m|Sludge}}, but Ash blocks the attack with his back. Ash tells Cyndaquil to use Flamethrower again, and after feeling somewhat self-conscious, it does so. However, Weezing uses {{m|Smokescreen}} at the same time, causing a massive explosion that sends Team Rocket and Cyndaquil blasting off. Though Pikachu lands at Ash’s feet and emerges from the net unscathed. Afterwards, Ash tries to look for Cyndaquil without success. Brock suggests they go to the local [[Pokémon Center]] for clues.
Cyndaquil wakes up and finds that it is lost. A {{p|Sentret}} spies on it and calls out, while a {{p|Butterfree}} and {{p|Sandshrew}} start to spy on Cyndaquil as well. Soon, Cyndaquil collapses and then the Butterfree hovers above it. A {{p|Dugtrio}} soon picks Cyndaquil up and starts to carry himit off somewhere.
