|Sableye is another "exclusive"-it can only be found in Sapphire and Emerald; it is also the only Hoenn Pokemon to have no weaknesses.|
|When Jessie takes out the bomb to destroy the gold mine, James calls her "sweetheart" in the dub, but originally he didn't call her that.|

Total Time Cut: 5 sec
One second is cut from the opening shot, as well as after the title screen. A second is cut after the final commercial break. Finally, the "TO BE CONTINUED..." shot is cut my two seconds.
Our heroes are now going to have lunch. Brock asks Corphish to help cut the vegetables. It does that well, but goes on to cut all of the sandwiches. So they have to eat the sandwiches with a spoon, and Corphish doesn't care too much.
Team Rocket approaches a huge tunnel. Meowth says that is was an abandoned gold mine. It used to give out lots of gold, but there isn't any now. Jessie still thinks there could be some, so she makes Meowth and James go along with her in.
They go in, and find an empty cart. They take it to find a huge ghost that scares Jessie and James out. Meowth falls out of the cart and gets attacked by the "ghost".
Ash and company are now coming to the same mine. It doesn't show up on the PokeNav, though, as it was abandoned for quite some time. Ash decides to make a plan to scare Corphish so it would be better trained. Then they go into the mine.
May and Max go in a mine cart and go faster into the tunnel than Ash and Brock. It is in the plan to scare Corphish. Ash releases Corphish and gives it a Courage Test.
Meowth wakes up in a control room to find that the ghost was a Sableye. He decides to make friends with it so he can then steal the twerps' Pokemon. The first targets are May and Max.
May and Max come up to Corphish in a white cloth. They scare Corphish, but it attacks the "ghost" and May and Max are revealed. Corphish then sends them through the tunnel with Crabhammer. Ash runs out with Brock and Corphish.
May and Max are now in the dark, and get scared by Sableye and Meowth. They then are captured in a net. Meowth reveals himself back in the control room. May uses Torchic's Ember to cut the rope, and then they go after Sableye to tell it the truth.
Sableye and Meowth reach Ash and Brock. Corphish is quite angry, being tricked. Then Sableye comes down from the ceiling and licks Ash and Brock. They become quite scared, and Pikachu and Corphish are captured.
Then May and Max come and tell Sableye that Meowth is lying. Sableye begins to distrust Meowth. Then Team Rocket comes and congratulating Meowth on catching Pikachu and Corphish for them. Sableye is now starting to get angry. Then Jessie throws a smoke bomb and sends Team Rocket away.
The bomb starts to make the cave collapse! With the help of Sableye, everybody gets out safely. Then Team Rocket still wants Pikachu, but they blast off.
Now Corphish is a bit tamer, and the wild Sableye must find another place to live on Dewford Island.
