Ash and company, along with Barry, take a ride in a blimp to Canalave City. When they arrive, Team Rocket, disguised as photographers, trick them into taking a picture of all of their Pokémon, which actually turns out to be a net to kidnap them. The Pokémon fight back to attempt to escape, and everyone's Pokémon (including Team Rocket's) gets blown away into the sky in the process and they all get separated. A chase ensues when Team Rocket declares that whomever should find the Pokémon first, gets to keep them all. When Meowth is grouped with Pikachu, Pachirisu, and Mime Jr. after the explosion, he considers leaving Team Rocket for good. Can all of the Pokémon find their trainers?
