Route 21 Entry

Defeat him and your rival will state that the Liepard that the grunt used was the Purrloin that was stolen from him a long time ago. The sage states that they won't fail this time and once again, calls for the Shadow Triad to dispose of you. When you awaken on the coast, Cheren will appear and mention that Team Plasma have been spotted in the Giant Chasm

Encounter #10: Giant Chasm

As you go in, you'll meet with Rood who will state that he is trying to negotiate with new Team Plasma to follow N's ideals, but new Team Plasma state that they do not listen to traitors. After defeating several grunts, you're able to pass as Rood continues to negotiate. Go in and you have to enter the Plasma Frigate once again.

This time, as you go through the Frigate, you go through the basement where you have to defeat numerous Plasma Grunts in order to obtain a password to open the door. This password is from a random and so you need to battle the Plasma grunts to get hints as to what the password could be. Once you make your way through, you'll see Kyurem in the core again and move onto the helm of the ship where Colress is.

Ghetsis will explain that the Giant Chasm is Kyurem's strongest place and that he will be able to complete his plans from here. However, as he proceeds, N appears with his Pokémon and attempts to stop Ghetsis, stating that he likes the Unova region and refuses to see Pokémon suffer at the hands of a man. However, Ghetsis interrupts by causing Kyurem to merge with N's Pokémon. Once Kyurem has changed form, it will challenge you.
