Colress is back along with Team Plasma’s Aldith. With the assistance of Ghetsis, Colress is once again experimenting with Pokemon control. Colress has managed to update his machine with what remained of his research and has created an effective means of controlling pokémon while increasing their aggression and attacking power. Ash, Iris, Cilan, and N are continuing on their journey. Ash, Iris, and Cilan are heading toward the White Ruins and N toward his own destination. They plan to part ways at the next town. Upon arriving at the town, the friends learn from Officer Jenny at a road block that a Haxorus is destroying the city. Iris states that there is no such thing as a bad dragon type and is determined to help the Haxorus calm down. The friends sneak around Jenny’s road blocks and into the city – running into Looker along the way. They find the Haxorus causing destruction in the city. N is unable to understand the Haxorus and Looker detects the presence of EM waves. Haxorus’s trainer is concerned as the pokémon will not listen to him. The friends release their pokémon to stop Haxorus – only to have Dragonite affected! As the friends struggle to regain control over their pokémon, N is severely injured. Who are the two mysterious women who appear out of the fog? And more importantly, where are they taking N?
