When Mamie was traveling with Glameow, she saw Team Rocket's Meowth injured and treated it. When Meowth woke up, he saw Glameow and fell in love with her. Jessie and James dragged him off, but he devised a plan. When the heroes and Mamie crossed the bridge, Team Rocket stole Mamie's Glameow and escaped. During that night, Meowth persuaded Glameow to come with him, but next day they were spotted. Though Meowth used Fury Swipes to repel the attacks, James' Carnivine hit Glameow with Bullet Seed and she evolved into a Purugly. Meowth's love was broken and Purugly sent Team Rocket blasting off using Hyper Beam. Mamie, with Purugly on her side, went on to challenge Crasher Wake once more.
