Chapter 26 - The Return of Team Rocket

Like most Pokemon Center throughout the world, the Saffron City Pokemon Center was a busy place. Brock was hoping to get some alone time with Nurse Joy but trainer after trainer kept coming in with injured Pokemon that needed to get healed. Brock wished all these trainers could have kept better care of their Pokemon while battling, but he admired Nurse Joy's conviction to help heal every single one of them.

Brock knew that he wasn't going to get to talk with Nurse Joy much till later so he went over to see what Ash was doing. He seemed to be talking with Erika now. Brock recalled the first time that he met Erika, the Gym Leader of Celadon City Gym. Ash had dressed up as a girl and with the help of Team Rocket he managed to get into the gym after he had insulted the perfume that Erika had made. Team Rocket were up to their normal tricks and ended up burning down the gym.

Ash risked his life in order to rescue Erika's Gloom. She was very grateful that he was willing to do that for her. Brock wondered just how grateful she would have been if Ash wasn't so naive about girls back then. Brock thought to himself that events might change now that Ash is a bit more mature than he was back then.

Brock finally arrived over where Ash was sitting and stood behind him. Brock could now see that he was talking to Erika on the video phone and was explaining the whole Master League experience to her.

"As part of the requirements, I need to go back and battle all the gym leaders that I previously battled before and defeat them before I can gain entry to the next round." Ash continued to explain to Erika as he noticed Brock was now standing behind him.

Without hesitation, Brock pushed Ash aside a bit and went up close to the screen to stare at Erika. Brock could never resist a pretty girl and seeing Erika again was bringing up all his memories, similar to the situation he had with Sabrina, but at least the memories of Erika were pleasant.

"Oh Erika! It's so good to see you again!" Brock said his nose practically touching the screen.

On Erika's side of the screen all she could see was a tan colored blob on the screen. The voice sounded like Brock and she realized that it must be him.

"Is that you Brock? Move back from the screen a bit, all I can see is drool." Erika said with a bit of laughter in her voice.

By this point, Ash had got a bit impatient with Brock and he pushed him aside again so he could finish up his conversation with Erika.

"Yes.. That's Brock. As you can see he's still the same old guy going after every girl he sees." Ash said as Brock went back to a position standing behind Ash again.

"I can see that. It's good to see you again too Brock. Ash was just telling me that he wants to battle me again for the Master League. Looks like I'll be seeing you guys again then." Erika said.

"That's great!" Brock replied.

"I'll await your arrival then Ash. I'll be sure to train hard before you get here for your rematch. I guarantee it's going to be a tough battle." Erika continued as Ash and Brock could both see her fighting spirit coming through the screen.

"Alright! Will see you in a few days then. See you!" Ash said as he began to end the transmission with Erika.

"See you later!" Erika said as the screen went blank.

"So I guess were off to Celadon City next then right?" Brock said as he waited for Ash to answer.

"That's right. Erika sounds like she's going to be tough just like Sabrina was. I keep having to think up really good strategies for all these gym leaders. It's already starting to get really tough." Ash explained as he got up as he saw something unexpected happen.

Team Rocket agents all dressed in their black uniforms began to storm the Pokemon Center main hall from every direction. The Pokemon Center started going crazy with the trainers and their Pokemon all starting to scramble around the room attempting to get away from the agents who had managed to block every exit now.

"Team Rocket! What are you doing here?!" Ash said a bit mad at the unexpected arrival of Team Rocket.

"Prepare for trouble!" Jessie said as one of the Pokemon trainers that was sitting down at a table quickly shed her clothes to reveal a familiar outfit.

"Make it double!" James said as he did a similar thing with his clothes and continue with his part of the motto.

"To protect the world from devastation!" Jessie continued.

"To unite all peoples within our nation!" James said as he stood on the table.

"To denounce the evils of truth and love!" Jessie said getting on the table beside James.

"To extend our reach to the stars above!" James said as Ash and Brock were already getting a bit annoyed by their presences.

"Jessie!" she stated.

"James!" he replied.

"Team Rocket, blast off at the speed of light!" Jessie said nearing the completion of the motto.

"Surrender now, or prepare to fight!" James said hoping that they wouldn't surrender so he could get back to battling again.

"Meowth! That's right!" Meowth said as he got out his claws to stop Nurse Joy from pressing a panic button that was located under the front desk.

"Leave her alone Meowth!" Brock said as he was about to come to Nurse Joy's rescue.

"Oh look it's the brats. What an unexpected surprise." Jessie said a bit mad by the fact that they just happened to be here when they invaded the Pokemon Center.


Earlier that day at the Team Rocket headquarters.

"Agent Jessie, please report to the bosses office immediately." a voice over the loud speaker said as Jessie, James and Meowth realized that the boss wanted to see Jessie once again.

"Sounds like the boss wants to see you again." James said a bit afraid that this meeting might split up the team.

"Yeah. I better get going." Jessie said as she got up and quick went to the Giovanni's office.

"Good luck..." Meowth said as Jessie hear his words of encouragement as she left the room.

"Guess will be looking for a new partner now." James said feeling a bit down after he realized that whatever the boss wanted with Jessie would probably mean she'd be going off somewhere else without them.

"It just won't be the same." Meowth said also a bit sad about the whole situation.

Jessie took the now familiar elevator up to the bosses office which she was in earlier. She wondered what the boss wanted with her so quickly after just talking to him. The elevator doors opened and Jessie walked up to the bosses officer. He was sitting at his desk awaiting her arrival.

"Good, Agent Jessie, I have your first mission for you." Giovanni said as he turned around in his chair to look at Jessie.

"Yes sir." Jessie replied standing at attention in front of him.

"Our agents have found out that there is a rare item being held at the Saffron City Pokemon Center awaiting transport to another undisclosed location. It's your job to find out what this item is and recover it for Team Rocket scientists to study." Giovanni said as he explained the situation to her.

"Right boss." Jessie said listening to the mission the boss was giving her. This was one of the biggest missions that she had ever been on as a member of Team Rocket and she definitely didn't want to screw it up.

"Since the target is a public location a full lock down raid maybe the best situation for this mission. Get in and get out as fast as possible before anyone alerts the local authorities." Giovanni told her as he was interested in seeing how she would manage this mission.

"Sounds good boss." Jessie said waiting for further instructions from him.

"You may choose your team members for this mission as you will need quite a few agents in order to lock the building down. Transports are being prepped at the launch pads right now and will leave as soon as you are ready." Giovanni continued as he finished explaining the mission details to her.

"Alright. We'll leave right away." Jessie said as she was excited to start off such an important mission.

"Go then. You are dismissed." Giovanni said as Jessie turned around and went towards the elevator.

"She better not screw this up." Giovanni muttered as he pet his Persian and turned his chair to face the window to watch the transports leave the headquarters.

Jessie was really excited and was happy that she was able to pick the members of her team. She was glad that meant that she didn't have to loose her friends James and Meowth so soon after her promotion. She couldn't wait to tell them the news. The doors to the elevator opened and Jessie practically ran to her room where James and Meowth were still sitting. James was the first to notice Jessie to return.

"That was fast!" James said realizing only about five minutes had past since she left.

"Alright! Let's go guys. We have a mission from the boss to do!" Jessie said is an excited voice.

James and Meowth's eyes quickly lit up when they heard the good news from Jessie and that they were included as well.

"We do?!" James said in his most excited voice.

"What is it?!" Meowth questioned wanting to know what the boss had in mind for them.

"I'll tell you on our way to Saffron City. Quick, the transports are waiting for us." Jessie told them as she motioned them to follow her.

"Transports?!" James said excited by the fact that they'de get to use Team Rocket's transports for once.

"Wow this must be an important mission if the boss is using the transports." Meowth said as he and James followed Jessie into the hall.

Jessie, James and Meowth quickly went to the top floor of the Team Rocket headquarters where they noticed two transports were already prepping for take off. A bunch of Team Rocket agents were already aboard awaiting instructions from Agent Jessie who was the commander of this mission.

"Agent Jessie, were just about ready for take off if you'll board the craft." An agent said who approached her as he noticed her arrival.

"Alright! Carry on!" Jessie said as she bordered the transport awaiting the final lift-off preparations.

James and Meowth also got on and sat down beside Jessie as the transport doors were closed by the agent and they could feel the transport begin to take off.

"This is so much better than our balloon!" James said impressed that they got to use the transports for once.

"So, Jessie what's this mission about?" Meowth asked wanting to know what mission was.

"The boss wants us to find and retrieve an important item being stored at the Saffron City Pokemon Center before its moved." Jessie explained to them.

"What is it?" James asked curious as to its importance that it required so much of Team Rocket's resources to get it.

"We don't know. Apparently our sources say its very important, so important that no one really knows what it is that's being stored there." Jessie said continuing her explanation of the situation.

"Then how are we supposed to find it?" Meowth questioned a bit confused.

"I guess will know what it is when we see it." Jessie said just as confused as he was.

"The boss certainly wanted to send a lot of agents, didn't he?" James said looking around at the dozen or so Team Rocket agents also in the transport with them.

"It's got to be very important to the boss." Meowth said.

"So what's the plan?" James asked Jessie.

"Since the target is a public location, a full lock down raid maybe the best situation for this mission. We are to get in and get out as fast as possible before anyone alerts the local authorities." Jessie said paraphrasing what the boss had told her.

"Alright! Let's get this show on the road!" James said excited to be in such an amazing Team Rocket operation.

"Pilot, how long until we reach the Saffron City Pokemon Center?" Jessie yelled at the pilot realizing that the transport was quite loud.

"We should be there in about 10 minutes sir." the pilot said checking the GPS.

"Alright! Let's be sure to do this mission right everyone. We don't want any screw ups." Jessie said as she couldn't even count how many times in the last few years that their plans had gone horribly wrong.

James looked out the transport window and watched the landscape go by. He recognized a few locations he had been on his travels and thought it would have been so much faster if he would have had a transport like this to get around all those years. A few minutes when by and the pilot announced they were now at the outskirts of Saffron City.

"Alright boys! It's showtime!" Jessie said as the transports quickly began landing.

Moments later Jessie, James and Meowth were getting out of the transport.

"James and Meowth and I are going to go scout out the Pokemon Center. We will signal for you guys to storm the building once we are ready." Jessie told all the Team Rocket agents who were awaiting her instructions.

"Will go in undercover guys. Put on these clothes." Jessie said

"Roger!" James and Meowth said as they followed Jessie's instructions as they always seemed to do.

"Let's go!" Jessie said motioning for James and Meowth to head with her after they had put on their disguises.

A few minutes of walking and Team Rocket had arrived at the Saffron City Pokemon Center. They hadn't a clue what they were looking for so they had to make sure to keep an eye out for anything that looked important. The three entered the front door and noticed it was quite busy in the Pokemon Center which was good because no one really paid any attention to their entrance.

"Look around and see if you see anything." Jessie told Meowth and James.

"Roger!" they replied again and split up and began their search.

Jessie, James and Meowth began their search of the Pokemon Center. This was a larger Pokemon Center than most so there was going to be a lot of searching required. A few minutes went by and they gathered in the middle of the room having completed their search of the main hall.

"Did you find anything?" Jessie asked the two.

"Nope. Nothing out of the ordinary." James said looking disappointed.

"It must be kept somewhere in the back." Meowth said as their attention was quickly drawn to the Pokemon Center entrance.

Ash, Misty, Brock, May and Dawn walked into the Pokemon Center all relieved that they would get some time to rest. Jessie, James and Meowth's mouths practically hit the floor when they saw them enter. Jessie couldn't believe that the brats had just shown up here of all places in the entire world.

"Do they have some kind of sick and twisted scheme to constantly get in our way!" Jessie muttered to James and Meowth who were also surprised to see the brat's here.

"It's like they are following us now!" James said a bit disappointed to see them here.

"No matter. We have a job to do plus we have a bunch of Team Rocket agents waiting for us outside the city to help us." Meowth reminded them.

"That's right. We just need to time their entrance accordingly." Jessie said trying to change their plan now that the possibility of the brat's interference was now a problem.

"They probably have some kind of alerting system at the front desk. Meowth you go check that out."

"Roger!" Meowth said as he began walking over to the desk where Brock was flirting with Nurse Joy which was distracting her enough for Meowth to check out the main desk.

A few seconds of looking and Meowth could see a panic button located under the desk. Meowth quickly returned to Jessie and James to report his findings.

"You were right. There is a panic button there." Meowth told them.

"Alright then. One of us will have to cover that area then when we call for the reinforcements. We don't need Officer Jenny and her crew to spoil our day!" Jessie explained as she began modifying her plan.

"I'll do that." Meowth said volunteering for the job.

"Okay! With this many people in the Pokemon Center and it being such a large, it's going to be hard for us to go unnoticed especially in some of the restricted areas of the building." James said as he explained the current situation.

"You're right. I guess we should call in the rest now and just search every room until we find it. A clean sweep of the building like the boss suggested." Jessie said finalizing her plan.

By this time a few minutes had gone by and May, Misty and Dawn had returned to their room. Ash was busy talking to Erika and Brock was realizing that Nurse Joy was really too busy to pay any attention to him at the moment.

"Okay. I'm going to call in the rest of the agents to lock down the building so we can continue our search." Jessie said as she adjusted the wrist watch radio to call for the troops to advance.

"It should take them a few minutes to get here. Meowth you should get into a good position to make sure no one presses that button." James said to Meowth.

"Roger! I'm on my way." Meowth said.

A few more minutes went by and finally the agents arrived. Team Rocket agents all dressed in their black uniforms began to storm the Pokemon Center main hall from every direction. The Pokemon Center started going crazy with the trainers and their Pokemon all starting to scramble around the room attempting to get away from the agents who had managed to block every exit now.

"Team Rocket! What are you doing here?!" Ash said a bit mad at the unexpected arrival of Team Rocket as Jessie and James looked at the brat boy realizing that he was outnumbered.

A familiar motto then began as Jessie and James revealed themselves and began to put their plan into motion. Meowth quickly moved into position and pulled out his claws so Nurse Joy wouldn't press the panic button.

"Enough with the disguises Team Rocket. Halloween isn't for a few months." Brock said as he was angry to see Team Rocket trying to attack a Pokemon Center like this especially with his dear Nurse Joy in the midsts.

"Enough of the small talk twerps. Were here on important business and I suggest you say out of it. No heroics today." Jessie said in a sly voice.

"You're outnumbered this time twerps!" James said as he gave a big laugh.

"If you try to do anything, Nurse Joy get's it!" Meowth said as he motioned Nurse Joy to the middle of the room with his claws so she wouldn't be in any position to even attempted to call for help.

"That's a good idea Meowth. Alright all you trainers, drop your Pokeball's in the center of the room and recall any of your Pokemon, otherwise this is going to get really nasty." Jessie said as she grabbed a Pokeball from her belt to show she meant business.

The trainers in the room looked around and could see that there was about 10 Team Rocket agents and Jessie, James and Meowth in the front hall. They could also hear noises coming from the other areas of the building, so they all knew there must be a lot of Team Rocket grunts around. Reluctantly, all the trainers began doing as they were told, recalling their Pokemon and stacking them in a pile near the middle of the room.

Ash and Brock both looked at each other and surveyed the area. They knew they were outnumbered and there was no way they'de be able to fight this many Team Rocket agents all by themselves. Like the other trainers, they reluctantly replied to Jessie's demands.

By this time May, Dawn and Misty were all wondering where the guys had gone to. They had waited a few more minutes for them to arrive like they said, but they hadn't shown up, either of them.

"You know, Brock's probably having some 'alone time' with Nurse Joy right now and Ash is probably still talking to Erika." Misty said trying to be rational about the situation.

"Yeah you're probably right. Why don't we go get some dinner then?" Dawn suggested realizing that the guys might be a bit later then they had originally thought.

"That sounds good. I'm getting hungry." May said as she could feel her stomach starting to growl a bit.

The girls opened the door to their room and it quickly became apparent that everything wasn't going alright in the Pokemon Center. They hadn't noticed that the power was off as they didn't have any lights on in their room. The hall was kind of dark and there was weird noises coming from different parts of the building.

"Okay... What's going on?!" Dawn said as she realized something was wrong.

"Well I guess we know why the guys didn't return back as planned." Misty said looking down both ways of the hall.

"Let's go to the main lobby and see what's going on!" May said as she began heading towards the front of the building as the other two girls followed.

A few moments of jogging and the girls stumbled into the lobby. They weren't expecting to see what they encountered. Jessie and James as well as the other agents heard the girls approaching and quickly stopped them as the entered the room.

"Oh look, its a twerp reunion! How nice!" Jessie said realizing that the girls would show up at some point.

"Now drop your Pokeballs and sit in the center with the rest of them." James said as two Team Rocket grunts quickly went behind the girls cornering them so they couldn't escape back down the hall.

"What are you guys doing here?!" Misty yelled mad to see Team Rocket here.

"Well let's ask Nurse Joy here, shall we?" Jessie said turning to look at Nurse Joy who now had her hands being tied up by one of the Team Rocket agents.

"What are you talking about?!" Nurse Joy replied quickly.

"Oh don't play innocent. We know that you know that there is something being stored here in the Pokemon Center that is of value. We want to know what it is and where it is!" James quickly responded to her question.

"Leave her alone!" Brock said as he tried to get up but one of the big Team Rocket grunts grabbed Brock by the shoulders and pushed him back on the ground.

"Face it twerps. The faster we get this item, the faster we'll leave and you can go back to doing all your twerping about!" Jessie said annoyed that Nurse Joy wasn't helping.

"Will ask you again, where's the item!" Meowth said as he got out his claws once again.

"I'm not telling you." Nurse Joy said as she turned her head and closed her eyes.

Meowth responded by using a quick Fury Swipes on her arms cutting her skin in a few places.

"Ouch!" Nurse Joy responded as she could feel the pain from the cuts Meowth had created.

"That will teach her for not helping us." James said with a bit of a laugh at the stubborn Nurse Joy.

Brock growled but realized the big Team Rocket grunt was still behind him waiting for him to do anything. The other two grunts that had cornered May, Dawn and Misty and finished tying their hands and arms and pushed them into the center of the room near where Brock and Ash were sitting.

"Are you guys alright?" Ash asked the girls as they all were attempting to recover from being pushed on the ground.

"I guess so." Misty said whispering to him.

"Now we know why you never returned back to the room." May said realizing the situation they were in.

"Alright, since Nurse Joy isn't going to help us, let's search every room in this building till we find this item. Agents stay here and watch these people till we get back." Jessie said as Meowth, James and herself began heading to the nearest hall.

"Roger!" the grunts all said in unison.

"Team Rocket is back and this time there is no stopping us!" Jessie, James and Meowth yelled as they began their search of the building.

"We cannot let them leave here with whatever they are looking for!" Ash said to the other as they all nodded.

Our heroes are trapped in the Saffron City Pokemon Center and Team Rocket is trying to find a mysterious item. Will Ash and his friends be able to stop them?!
