Sheridan placed Makuhita and Shroomish in drums. Whenever it was needed to "cheer on" for a Pokémon, Sheridan whispered through his microphone to have Makuhita use Helping Hand, which boosted a Pokémon's attack power. Max found out about this scheme and pushed the drums away, revealing Pokémon inside, who helped Team Rocket gain an advantage in a fight against Ash and Brock.
