If Team Rocket hadn't done anything I bet that the three guys would have had the fighting Pokemon kick all the Wobbefuet before proceeding to destroy the entire town. That rule was kinda stupid and should have had an expection, it's interesting how they really thought the three bad guys were going to stop just because they do that. Don't waste your breath, attack.

I wouldn't have let any rules stopped me, I would have stopped those bad guys because as Jessie said, some rules are meant to be broken and that rule has to be one of them.
