Zero (Japanese: ゼロ Zero) is a character who appeared in Giratina and the Sky Warrior.

History

Zero is the main antagonist who wishes to use Giratina's power to travel freely between dimensions. He owns a robotic maid named Infi who controls his mothership, Megarig. Zero's objective was to rule the Reverse World. He wanted to save it from all the pollution emptied into it by the real world. He also wanted to use the Reverse World's properties to get revenge on the real world.

Zero as Newton's student

He was once Newton Graceland's student in studying the Reverse World, but he became obsessed with Giratina's power and decided to capture it. Using a machine designed by Newton himself, Zero was able to capture and unleash Giratina's power. He used the machine to cause destruction in the real world by damaging the Reverse World.

Despite doing significant damage, he was finally defeated by the combined power of Shaymin, Giratina, and Ash when he was forced back into the real world, and he crashed his flying machine into a glacier. Upon impact, Dawn, her Pokémon, and many surrounding Mamoswine, froze Zero into the glacier itself, still inside of his machine. Officer Jenny arrests him in the end of the film, during the credits.

He makes another appearance in the credits of Arceus and the Jewel of Life where he is in prison. He was shown to be visited by Newton, who possessed a surviving copy of Infi which he was happy to see.

Character

Zero is shown to be brilliant, but troubled. He is emotionally unstable, obsessive and narcissistic, simultaneously seeing himself as having a righteous cause in protecting the Reverse World but also viewing himself as its king. For most of the movie, he is calm and conducts his plan with great confidence, but as he encounters mounting opposition, he gradually loses his composure until he is reduced to a screaming, maniacal wreck. After realizing his defeat, however, he eventually accepts his fate with dignity and willingly goes to prison, where he is later seen to have recovered significantly.

In the dub of the movie, he is suggested to have a photographic memory. This line is not present in the Japanese version; instead, it is merely suggested that he obsessively rebuilt the Megarig using as much of Newton Graceland's original design as he could.

Pokémon

This listing is of Zero's known Pokémon:

Zero's Magnezone
Magnezone
Magnezone is Zero's main Pokémon and the only one he keeps close to him. Its job ranges from battling, like any usual trained Pokémon, to more advanced jobs, like leading Zero's Magnemite and Magneton army. Zero is also seen using it as a form of temporary transportation in that he will stand on Magnezone, and it will float him to locations he needs to reach. It was shown to be fast, powerful, durable, and as ruthless as Zero himself in pursuing Shaymin. After Zero was arrested, Magnezone and the Magnemite army took up residence on the Megarig's wreck in Gracidea.

Magnezone's known moves are Mirror Shot and Discharge.

Trivia

  • The outfit he wears strongly resembles the design of Giratina, as does the mecha he used at the end of the film; this is due to his obsession with Giratina.
