On Route 38, Crys is still battling Ariana. The TR General gets her Murkrow to use Fly, but Crys commands a Bullet Punch, and Chanpeon leaps high up into the skies to strikes at the dark crow. Ariana is impressed that Hitmonchan managed to score an accurate hit at such a distance, and says Crys seems to be picking up on the advantage her companion has left behind. However, she still thinks that the boy is heartless for fleeing the scene like that, and Crys snaps that Silver did not flee. Ariana challenges her that Silver did not leave behind any Plates to aide her, and finds it hardly a gentleman's gesture to leave a girl behind on a battle field while he heads off to collect the Plates.

Crys defends that Silver has his reasons for doing so, and orders a Flamethrower from Arcapeon, but Gloom retaliates with Acid, and easily cancels out the attack. Ariana remarks that it wouldn't really matter what Crys believes, as the Plates belong to Petrel's responsibility, and not hers. Crys demands to know what Ariana's responsibility is in that case, and the woman decides to show her by action.

Without warning, Arbok coils its body around Bonpeon, and hurls it down towards the hole created by Rhyperior's Earth Power. Murkrow then dives into Chanpeon with a Drill Peck, and sends it tumbling down into the crypt as well. Crys cries out in horror at the scene, and Ariana teases that things could possibly be different if Rhyperior is still here, but it is sadly not the case.

The woman states that it is expected that pesky kids like Silver and Crys would get in their way and scheme all sorts of plans, which is why they have given each person the job they most excelled at, and divided responsibilities among the Four General. For herself, her task is to remove any obstacles and intruders by any means, while Petrel infiltrates places with his expert ability of disguise to locate the Plates, and Proton uses his knowledge and analyzing skills to find out the location of the Sinjoh Ruins.

Ariana is just about to reveal Archer's task pertaining to Arceus as well when a voice tells her that she has spoken too much to her opponents. She turns around to see that Archer, Petrel and Proton have all come to join her, and after feeling stunned for a moment, laughs with her fan covering her mouth to hide her embarrassment.

Crys takes a glance at the three men who have appeared, and knows that they are the other members of the TR Four Generals. She notices how Archer, the man with turquoise hair, managed to stifle Ariana when he spoke, and rationalizes that he must be the current top leader of Team Rocket.

Ariana wants to know what her comrades are doing there, and asks if they have fulfilled their assigned duties. Petrel snickers that he has achieved something, through a somewhat shaky tone, and Proton states that he has completed his part. Petrel takes a glance at Crys, and says it seems that Ariana hasn't done so on the other hand. The woman chooses to ignore him, and turns to Archer to ask if he has managed to find Arceus. The turquoise-haired man smirks that he most certainly has, and that is the reason why he is there. Ariana doesn't understand what he means, and Archer explains by pointing behind where Crys is standing.

In that instant, the air in the area seems to freeze, and Crys spins around in surprise to see a giant white four-legged creature which has a golden ring around the central part of its body. The being arches its head backwards to stare down at her, and Crys starts to feel herself trembling out of control.

Archer states that in a far, far-away land, there is a long path which extends all the way up to the skies where this Pokemon exists. Nobody knows where this is or where it lies, and even tales that speak of it are hardly comprehensible. However, it is said that when all the Plates start to gather at one place, Arceus will descend to the ground.

Keeping her eyes on Arceus, Crys knows that she has never experienced a feeling quite like this before. Although she has encountered many Pokemon, some of them legendaries, she has never felt one exuding such kind of intense pressure. However, if what Archer says is true, this Pokemon must still be a wild one. Without another thought, Crys goes airborne on her Xatu, Tupeon, and declares that she shall capture Arceus as she kicks out a Level Ball while the astonished TR Four Generals watch on…
