She shows them around and tells them about the big race the following day. One of the competitors hires Team Rocket to help him win and they start by firing globs at the Tauros. Lara comes and has Growlithe calm them. Another blob is fired and it causes Ponyta who she rides on to get excited and throw her back. She broke her arm and could not race.

They show Jenny the picture and she identifies him as the same kid who lives with the Kangaskhan. They go and find him, but he doesn't remember his real parents until his father clubs him on the head. Once he remembers, he still wants to stay with the Kangaskhan and he runs off. Team Rocket is then trying a new trick. They are in a fake Kangaskhan and they pretend that it is injured. The others come to help and then they come out to shoot tranquilizer at the other Kangaskhan. They are defeated by the parents who crash their plane into the fake Kangaskhan to blow it up.

Halfway, they come across a bike gang. They battle the gang and before long Jessie and James show up. They are welcomed as this is where they used to live and were well known by the gang members. They are all quickly chased off by the police and Ash and the group continue to deliver the medicine. They come to a raised part of the bridge as a boat is going by and they desperately make the jump. They use Team Rocket who on the other side were trying to show off as good riders and bounce off of them to make it across.

Eventually, Team Rocket steals Ditto and try to make it transform into various things. They are very harsh on Ditto to make it transform perfectly and it succeeds under the pressure they put it under.

The group is on their own Porygon that isn't a prototype and they are attacked by James' Weezing and Jessie's Arbok. Weezing is defeated by Porygon who mimics Weezing's poison gas attack. They then send their Porygon against the group's Porygon. While fighting, the group try to remove the barricades that were set up by Team Rocket. Meanwhile, back at the center, Nurse Joy hires someone to install an antiviral program into the network. This program in turn starts chasing both Team Rocket and the group too.

Special 1 (Holiday Hi-Jynx)

It's Christmas time, and Santa (James) is entering the house. He is caught. Jessie's evil plan to capture Santa should work. Jessie is mad because a Jynx who she thought was Santa Claus took her favorite doll when she was young. Now, she is going to get her revenge. Meanwhile, Ash and friends are snooping around to discover a Jynx. Ash battles it, first with Pikachu, who's kissed to death, and then Charmander, who is successful. Jynx blocks Ash's Pokéball, and tells them that she was shining Santa's boot for him when she drifted away from the North Pole. Ash and the group try to take Jynx back to the North Pole, but the Pokémon get tired. As a last desperate attempt, Ash takes off his clothes and starts pulling everyone himself. He is stopped by a Lapras, who first tests them to make sure their intentions are good, then offers to help them the rest of the way to the North Pole. Team Rocket follows them all the way to the North Pole. When they finally make it, Jessie and James emerge from their Gyarados, all tired out. They say their motto, only to find themselves freezing cold. Meowth goes back in, under a nice warm blanket, and then he pushes the button to trap the group while they snatch the Jynx who Jessie thinks is Santa that took her doll. They soon find out that it wasn't Santa after all, and that the Jynx was only trying to help Jessie by fixing the doll. She gets the doll back from the real Santa, but isn't so grateful and ties him up. They take all the presents for Christmas, but are stopped by Lapras and Charmander. They still manage to escape with the presents, until all of Santa's Jynx use a combined Psywave attack to bring back the Mecha-Gyarados and get back the presents, and then make sure Team Rocket blasts off again. Back at Jessie and James' house they are sleeping in their bed, hoping Santa will have something for them. Jynx shows up at the window, and kisses them so they will sleep tight. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Special 2 (Snow Way Out!)

Ash and the group come to a fork in the road. Ash quickly chooses the path to the right, thinking it would be just a little hill. It turned out to be a huge snow mountain. The compass did not work, and they are totally lost. Ash calls out Pidgeotto to find a way, and Pidgeotto does. So, they begin to follow. Meanwhile; Jessie, James, and Meowth are in the cold, too. James and Meowth huddle closely as to not freeze, but Jessie is enjoying her time in the snow, remembering from her childhood the snowgasboards her mother used to make her (food made out of snow). Ash and the group decide to dig a cave in the snow, and camp out for the night. Pikachu is blown away in the harsh blizzard winds. Ash finds Pikachu hanging over a cliff just about to fall off. Eventually rescuing Pikachu, they proceed with the help of his other Pokémon to dig a cave in the snow, and Charmander keeps them warm for a while. Meanwhile, Team Rocket has built an igloo, keeping warm using matches. Meowth goes through all three matches, and they use the last three to imagine they are in a hot place. When Jessie's match goes out, she finds the other two sleeping, and slaps them awake. Back at Ash's cave, Charmander gets tired, so Ash takes him back into his Pokéball. Ash does the same for all the others, but Pikachu refuses so Ash let's him stay out. The other Pokémon come out of their balls again, and huddle around Ash so they can stay warm. When the storm stops, they come out to find Brock and Misty had a nice warm cave in the snow by a hot spring. They take off back onto the road in Team Rocket's balloon out of the cold. Meanwhile; Jessie, James, and Meowth, are pulling each other's cheeks to stay warm, until they land in the hot spring. It's nice there, but a little too warm.

They find Team Rocket thanks to Horsea leaving a trail of ink and they recover everything.

They get madder at the group who played the trick, but they have lightning rods set up and Pikachu attacks them with the lightning rods to gain additional electricity.

Meowth also takes a liking to the girl who cared for him. The group meet the same girl and she wants to battle them. She needs the mushroom on a Parasect to make a new super potion, but her Paras will not evolve because it isn't getting any battle experience and is very weak. Pikachu fires a tiny static bolt at it and it faints. He sends Charmeleon, who is disobedient and flames Paras real good.

They find a fruit in the forest that soothes a sore throat. Jigglypuff eats some and starts to sing. The song Jigglypuff sings puts everyone to sleep, which upsets it and it scribbles on their faces. They decide to have it sing in Neon Town where no one ever sleeps. It works, and the whole town is put to sleep. They all wake up the next morning and are a lot nicer because they were relaxed from a nice sleep.
