Weston had a Rotom, who was supposed to battle Mantle's Krookodile several years ago. However, Krookodile had scared Rotom off, making Mantle assume Yolton forfeited the battle. When the heroes came to the hotel, Rotom played a tape of the opening of the hotel, where Mantle took the ownership of the hotel. Rotom had the heroes enter an elevator and merge with it, causing them to travel several years back into the past. The heroes stopped Mantle, giving Weston and Rotom time to prepare. Mantle had Krookodile attack Rotom, who went off and merged with a mow, fridge and a washing machine, using Hydro Pump, Blizzard and Leaf Storm to defeat Krookodile. Mantle was not pleased about this, so Ash's Pikachu and Rotom used Thunderbolt, stopping the thug and saving the hotel. Rotom then took the heroes into the present, where Weston was the owner of the hotel, while Mantle and his goons were actually the hotel's staff.
