Plot

The main headline news regarding the disappearance of two scholars from the Canalave City academic conference are broadcasted from the TV inside the Hearthome City Gym that Fantina had just switched on. The news shocks Platinum when she finds out who the missing people are. She quickly asks Fantina for a phone, and uses it to call her butler, who duly confirms the news.

Falling to her knees in despair after hanging up the call, Platinum reveals that one of the missing scholars is her very own father. The revelation shocks Diamond, Pearl and Fantina. Fantina suggests that Platinum must head to Canalave immediately, and gives her Drifblim to Platinum so that she can travel there by flight. As her bodyguards, Diamond and Pearl have no choice but to go with her, and during the flight, both begin to feel anxious thinking about how the truth would be unravelled in front of the Berlitz family.

The trio arrive at Canalave City early next morning, and under Platinum's instruction, Drifblim lands the trio in front of the city's library, whose entrance has been cordoned off. Pearl suggests that the trio have a rest and continue with the investigation later. Platinum agrees, but suddenly hears her father's voice somewhere, and rushes to its source.

Diamond and Pearl follow, and upon entering a building, the trio get thrown across metal platforms until they reach the top storey of the building. A man wearing a cape and holding a spade approaches from behind. Impressed by how they managed to reach his chamber so early in the morning, the man accepts the trio's challenge.

In response, Platinum throws down her scarf as she gets ready to battle. The scarf lands in front of a Shieldon trying to flee from the soon-to-be battle scene, and the man is shocked to see that five Gym Badges are pinned on it. Platinum calls out her Empoleon. Despite hitting the man's two Bronzong successfully with Aqua Jet, Empoleon is knocked out by the two Bronzong's combined Payback. Knowing that their opponent is tough, Diamond and Pearl get ready to call out their Pokémon, but Platinum stops them, and resumes her battle with Ponyta. Knowing that her father is in the building somewhere, Platinum immediately has Ponyta unleash a Flamethrower towards the man. The man shields himself with his cape, but the flames burn down the curtain behind to unveil Professor Rowan and Mr. Berlitz, trapped in a glass cube.
