(Japanese: プルートの野望をうちくだけ! Crush Pluto's Ambitions!) is the thirty second chapter of the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga.
As Hareta and the others set off on Jun's Dragonite, Professor Rowan wishes them well before commenting that he has to go prepare himself. As our heroes travel to Veilstone, Mitsumi reminices about all the times they've been through. Particularly the way that Hareta calmed that Onix the day they met, as she begins to ponder what may have exactly set it off, she is distracted by Hareta letting off a big fart. She gets mad at him, however Jun announces that they're coming in towards Veilstone, which prompts Hareta and Minun to jump off Dragonite while still in the air. Before Hareta hits the ground, something large and bouncy cushions his fall. It's the Grunt with the butt! The Grunt says that he knew that Hareta would be on his way, and as Jun and Mitsumi land he makes a plea. "Please, lend me your strength! Help me to save Cyrus who has been taken captive by Charon!" Mitsumi is shocked at the news that Cyrus is being held captive, and as the Grunt begs once again, Hareta replies with a "'kay! I'll do it!", the Grunt is astounded to hear this as Jun says that if Hareta's in, so is he. Mitsumi also agrees to help. Hareta then realises that up until now they've only known him as "That Team Galactic guy with the butt" and asks him if he has a name. The Grunt replies that as a Grunt, he has no real name, however his designated number is K-2. Both he and Hareta then laugh about how he's always at the butt of a joke as Mitsumi tells them to be serious.
As they head to Team Galactic HQ, they find their path blocked by Kōya. He refuses to let them in due to an Elite Police Taskforce lead by Looker currently dealing with Team Galactic inside. However, Kōya is soon alerted that the mission is a failure shortly before an officer is sent flying out of the building. Kōya asks the officer what happened and he manages to tell him that the entire squadron was wiped out by Charon's Pokémon. Kōya rushes in followed by Hareta and the others fiding the Police Taskforce all lying on the floor. Looker manages to provide a quick save preventing Kōya being hit by an Onix. Charon laughs as he tells Hareta and the others to witness his power and that he'll defeat them just as he did to the International Police with his loyal Pokémon army. Hareta notices something off about these Pokémon, as he mentions that he "can't hear their voices at all". Charon explains that he has specially conditioned these Pokémon to become vicious fighting machines. Mitsumi notices that the eyes of the Pokémon are the same as that Onix's the day she met Hareta and realises that it must have been one of Charon's early experiments. As Hareta refuses to accept Charon's view that Pokémon are simply tools to be used, Looker tells Kōya to stand down and retreat. However, Kōya refuses this order as both he and Hareta stand up to Charon and tell him that "You are the the only one that I'll never forgive!!". Charon openly mocks them saying that there's no way they could stand up to him and his ferocious Pokémon. Meanwhile, K-2 suggests to Mitsumi that while Hareta and Kōya deal with Charon, they might be able to free Cyrus. As Mitsumi and Jun leave with K-2, she tells Hareta that they're counting on him as he sends out his Empoleon. Both Hareta and Kōya then announce that they will defeat Charon no matter what.
