Team Rocket robbed the Giant, entering the P1 Grand Prix with his Hitmonlee. Hitmonlee's kicking moves were powerful and managed to defeat Anthony's Hitmonchan (though he was binded by glue Meowth sprayed). However, Ash's Primeape managed to defeat Hitmonlee, as Team Rocket did not count their plan to win would fail. After this the Hitmonlee presumably returned to his trainer.
