After [[Simon]] finished telling {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} the story about his past, the men ordered the Magnemite to steal the electricity of a local Pokémon Center. After Simon talked to the Magnemite, they stopped their actions and floated back to the ground from exhaustion. The leader of the con men became very angry and was about to kick one of the Magnemite until {{AP|Pikachu}} recharged them with his own electricity. This act made them turn against the phony Pokémon interpreters and shock them.
