Morty seems to have great control over the Ghosts and sends them away and only his own Gengar remains.

A squad team was allowed in; but tried to capture Ho-oh. Ho-oh flew off and burned the tower down. It was three centuries ago and Ho-oh was never been seen ever since then. They have tried to build a new Tower, in the hope Ho-oh would return, but it didn't work. Ash remembers to have seen a Ho-oh the day he began his journey, but Morty doesn't believe him.
Togepi runs away and wants to play with the Ghost Pokémon. Pikachu drags Togepi away, but run outside the Tower.

Outside, Team Rocket are still using the Itemfinder. They then spot Pikachu and Togepi and capture them. Ash has seen this and runs outside. Morty uses his Gengar, who defeats Team Rocket and frees Togepi and Pikachu. Team Rocket blasts off and Ash challenges Morty again.
