Episode 16 (Pokémon Shipwreck)

With the St. Anne deep underwater, the group recovers and discover their predicament. Jessie and James wake up as well. When they meet up they initially start a battle, but the weight of their Pokémon rocks the boat. They agree to work together to get out. They find their way to a weak point in the boat where Charmander welds through it. Water gushes in and the three escape on water Pokémon. Team Rocket try to escape, but their Magikarp is too weak. They eventually float to the surface and are discovered by Pidgeotto who was searching for dry land. Just when the group are about to push overboard the apparently dead Team Rocket, they wake up. After sitting around starved for days with no land in sight, they start to consider eating Magikarp. They discover that Magikarp is all scale and bones. After James kicks Magikarp overboard, it evolves into Gyarados. The angry Gyarados does a dragon rage attack on them and they all spin away in a tornado created by Gyarados.

After everyone on the island gets chased around by giant Pokémon for a while, Jessie and James come upon Pikachu. They rush out of the phone booth they were hiding in to find it is a huge Pikachu. In running they find a train car and try to escape. They break the brake when trying to stop it and they keep going. Ash and the group see this giant Pikachu just as the train car goes by under them; collapsing the ledge they stood on. They land in the train car with Team Rocket who demand Pikachu (not that big one). They are thrown into the air and crash through one of the giant Pokémon and they discover that they were mechanical. After all is through, they arrive at Porta Vista just in time for a vacation.

He rushes out to see the damage, and is very upset. Team Rocket manages to survive too, landing back at the beach where they meet an old lady (Nastina). Ash's group start working to promote the old man's restaurant to help pay him back for the damage. The promotion doesn't work well as Team Rocket are helping Nastina with her beach house and taking all the customers. Ash uses his Pokémon to help the restaurant, and customers begin flocking to the place making it popular again. Team Rocket begin playing various tricks to sabotage their success and manage to take away the customers they had gotten. Professor Oak and Ash's mom stop in at the restaurant surprising Ash, and tell them about a swimsuit competition for girls and disguised Pokémon where they could win money to pay back the old man. Misty decides to enter the contest. For her Pokémon, Squirtle comes out disguised as a space alien and Starmie is the UFO. She is quickly greeted by competition from Jessie and James. James pretends he's a girl complete with fake body suit (not to mention fully inflatable ^_^), and the audience falls for it. They have Koffing and Ekans wrapped together not looking like anything in particular. Gary shows up to enter his numerous girlfriends in the competition. Team Rocket are angry that they've lost, so as they get their sub back, they crash the competition. A heat seeking missle is on it's way, and Ash manages to reverse it's course with a fire blast from Charmander. Team Rocket pedal away as fast as they can with the missle following close behind, they crash into the beach house and they all blast off into the sky including Nastina. In the end, Ash's mom comes out the winner and makes enough money to pay back the old man for the dock. Ash's group continue on their way.

She then suggests to them a Tentacool extermination project. She offers a million dollars and a great dinner to them for it. Ash and Brock rush for it, but Misty pulls them away walking out angry. She doesn't want to hurt the Tentacool. Nastina offers the same thing to everyone else in town, eventually Team Rocket ends up with the job. They quickly fail as usual. In the process they greatly enlarge a Tentacruel. The enlarged Tentacruel attacks the city. Eventually with convincing from other Pokémon and Misty, the Tentacruel stops and leaves.
