When the Battle Park's owner left to get supplies, Team Rocket took Charizard, Venusaur and Blastoise, challenging Ash to three battles. James used Venusaur against Ash's Cyndaquil. Venusaur used Razor Leaf, but missed and cut off some parts of the trees instead. Venusaur tackled Cyndaquil and attempted to hit it with Vine Whip, but Cyndaquil dodged. Venusaur repeated the attack, causing Cyndaquil to become injured, but Cyndaquil avoided Razor Leaf by using Smokescreen. Cyndaquil used a combo of Swift and Flamethrower, pushing Venusaur away, who defeated Cyndaquil with Solar Beam before it could retaliate with Flamethrower. Team Rocket used those Pokémon once more, but the Pokémon blasted them off, with Venusaur hitting them with Solar Beam, recognizing the Battle Park owner as their true owner.
