With nearly all his Pokemon fainted and his Pidgeot's health dwindling due to poison, Red raced against the clock to get his team to the Fuchsia Pokémon Center, with the mob finally cooperating for once to get him there safely... only for him to black out mere feet away from the entrance.
At Silph Co., Red meant to go for the healing beds to rescue a poisoned Pidgeot but instead went straight to Giovanni. Giovanni defeated him without even using all of his Pokemon.
This writeup of the Silph Co. events (doubles as a CMOH).
Red stood face to face with the evil Giovanni... All of his Pokémon were weak or fainted... The boss of Team Rocket smirked. "So, little boy... Looks like your Pidgeot only has one move left before it succumbs to poison... What do you hope to do now?" Red smiled. He reached in his bag... and took out the Poké Flute. He whistled a jaunty little tune on it, soothing the Pidgeot's final spasms as the poison took his final ounce of strength. It was okay now. They would go to the Pokémon Center and try again.
Red tried and failed repeatedly to run from Giovanni as his Pokemon were near defeat.
Bloody Sunday. They tried withdrawing AA-j from the PC but failed again and again, ending up releasing Cabbage, Digrat, Dux and many others. Memorial posts for the first 3 were up almost immediately on Reddit. All this and they still didn't manage to keep AA-j in their party.
After Red beat Blaine, he suggested Red use Fire Blast on a Fire Pokemon like Charmeleon. Way to rub Abby's loss in.
Red encountered several wild Raticate in the grass south of Pallet Town; the Mob was reminded of Digrat.
Giovanni beat Red again at Viridian. Escape Ropes and trying to run didn't help, and Red was forced to watch as his Nidoqueen and Nidoking defeated Omanyte, Bird Jesus, and AA-j.

The mob fails at teaching ATV the Venomoth (who performed wondrously against Lance earlier in Day 16) Psybeam when he reaches Level 38, thus depriving him of his first useful damaging move. The depressing scene ended up spreading quite a bit of heartbreak throughout the chat.
