Johto Pokédex, Magikarp Salesman
James trades his Victreebel to the Magikarp Salesman for a Weepinbell. That Weepinbell then evolves into Victreebel. When they bit down on Jessie and the Magikarp Salesman they get rid of them. The two then meet and go to live together in the forest.
The Pokedex said that Elekid was the evolved form of Electabuzz, but Elekid is actually the pre-evolved form.
James' new Weepinbell evolves without a Leaf Stone.
Meowth: We gotta get those sparkplugs back and present them to the boss.
James: I wonder, will the boss like them?
Meowth: Of course! That Elekid's gonna be a regular part of the boss' morning routine, like running his electric razor for instance, and he's gonna say, "It's the best shave I ever had." Then he'll use his hairdryer and get a perfect blow dry.
James: He could just plug in.
Meowth: But this way is cheaper.
Jessie: And Larvitar?
Meowth: The boss' always saying that he can't find some good help these days. But with Larvitar being the help, those days'll be done; and when he sees the look of sincere servitude in Larvitar's honest eyes, he'll say, "Larvitar, you're an oasis in a sea of losers."
Meowth: So which one of our Pokémon do you think we should trade with that old codger?
Jessie & James: How about you?
Meowth: You can't trade me! I'm the brains of this whole outfit!
Jessie: Then how about Weezing?
James: What? And simply throw away the clean getaways we've managed using my dear Weezing's smokescreen?
Meowth: I vote Wobbuffet.
Jessie: No. Wobbuffet may be a part-time pain, but those counter attacks have been a help.
James: Then perhaps Arbok?
Jessie: I'll have you know that I've been training with Arbok since it was an innocent little Ekans!
Meowth: There's only one left...
Jessie & Meowth: The winner is Victreebel!
James: Wait, I remember those beady little eyes. You! You're that lame excuse for a poke-peddler!
Salesman: Huh! Have a nice day, bye!
James: Wait! I want a refund!
Salesman: Don't make me laugh.
Salesman: Company policy clearly states that a full refund is given only with the return of the merchandise.
Jessie: Say, James, what did you do with that Magikarp?
James: Let me see...
Meowth: Oh, that's right, you gave that thing a royal boot.
