Money Rate x1

The 5th level of PTD 1 and the final level in Chapter 1. In this level, Brock (who is revealed to be the boss of the two grunts), Jessie (who was the Mysterious Woman) and James (who was the Mysterious Man) are talking about Rare Candy. It is also revealed the Beedrill captured Joey and wrapped him in String Shot to take him to the trio. Joey finishes by wondering where you are

Mewtwo is seen talking with you. Meanwhile, The Team Rocket Trio is in the Pewter Gym and James shows Brock the Pokeballs containing Pokemon him and Jessie stole. Mewtwo then teleports you to the Pewter Gym where Mewtwo had kept the Pokéballs from Jessie, James, and Brock. He then disappears, forcing you into a battle. You must defeat Brock's Pokémon and save Joey from the Beedrill that captured him in the previous level. After the battle, Brock's Onix uses Rock Throw. When he uses the move, you must remove all of your Pokémon from the field to prevent them from fainting, only to replace them when Brock sends in his Onix.

  • When Mewtwo teleports in, there are seven Pokéballs, however, you only defend 6.
  • Sometimes, if you put your Pokémon on the field when the rocks are still on it, they will disappear.
  • In a past version of PTD 1, Team Rocket would see your starter Pokémon and steal it.

There is also a challenge level of the same name where you need to protect one Pokéball from four Onix. The reward is a Shiny Geodude, and you may only use the five Pokémon given at the start of the level, not your team.
