Episode Summary

Dues and Dont's
Upon realizing that Ash and friends have many more Pokémon than they do, Team Rocket go on a search for a new Pokémon. They find a Delibird in a cage. A lady comes out and says that if they can prove they are members of Team Rocket, they can keep the Delibird. They search through Team Rocket records to find their names aren't listed. They have been kicked due to their debt. However, Giovanni lets them back in so that they can repay their debts. With their spirits renewed, Team Rocket take Delibird and go to capture Pikachu.moreless

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • More like a Team Rocket past history episode.

    Wow... I learned so much about how Team Rocket was able to manage to buy some machines they would use to capture any Pokemon so they would present it to their leader. But $1M or $1B for what they own!? That's too much for me. Money ain't that much of a deal as they used a lended Deliberd to attack Pikachu, but they managed to fail the task. It was only done to see if they'd remain as TR members, whoch of course, they will for a long time...moreless
