1)Episode was meant to be comedic, they weren't going to have any seriousness when dealing with Charles' plot of the episode.

3)What exactly are you talking about? They were outnumbered in the first place and I believe their plan was ruined or something, I don't remember the details of the episode but when Oshawott destroyed the controller they couldn't do anything else, so instead of just letting themselves get caught they made a getaway. And they do all have Pokemon, they just saw the opportunity of escape and took it.
4)I don't remember the details but I don't remember anyone asking who Charles was at that point, but even if they did, so what? It's not like they were going anywhere unless they wanted murder/attempted murder on their list of charges...then they probably would be going away for life. At that point there was no escape and Ferrara knew he'd had to battle his way out.
