if you watched A Poached Ego! (the saddest Pokemon episode EVER), you would see that BOTH Jessie and James released their Arbok and Weezing, then stood up to a TYRANITAR, with no Pokemon other than Meowth. over and over, it used Hyper Beam at those three, but over and over, they came back. they did it JUST to give their Pokemon time to escape. that love, that courage, gave me a new-found respect for Team Rocket. i will forever remember that sacrifice.
