Kyurem has foreseen the destruction the Bittercold will bring to the Pokémon world, and sees it as his duty to protect that future. He is first encountered during the player's first visit to the Glacier Palace, where he insists that the team leave, and gives them a treasure chest of gifts. After the player defeats Munna and her friends for the first time, he destroys Hydreigon and stomps on the player. He is finally defeated by the player and their partner prior to the final battle against the Bittercold. He then admits that maybe the future can be changed, and that he would like to see the player succeed. He telepathically communicates with the player during the final battle.
Munna, along with Hydreigon, first appears in the player's dream prior to coming to the Pokémon world. The player believes they must rescue Munna from Hydreigon, but later discovers that Munna works for Kyurem, and is in fact out to destroy the player. After she and her friends are defeated by the player and their partner, she seems to come around to their way of thinking when she realizes she doesn't want her friends to be destroyed, and saves the player from falling in the Glacier Palace and cheers them on during the final battle with the Bittercold. She appears to be the leader of her friends, as they often refer to her as "Lady Munna".

When Umbreon makes it safely to Post Town, they catch Espeon and search her but don't find the Entercards, due to Espeon hiding them with Swadloon. They are then defeated by the hero and partner. It is later revealed that they work with Munna, Kyurem, and the Bittercold. Like Munna, they also change their minds about the world's destruction and cheer on the player during the final battle.
During the trip to destroy the Bittercold, the player is faced with a battle against Salamence and two Chandelure who are part of Munna's gang. After Salamence is defeated, the three villains fall in defeat. Shortly after, Emolga is attacked by one of the two Chandelure but Espeon appears and knocks it out before it can do any harm. The player's team then uses Entercards to access the Glacier Palace. Salamence is added to the boss list after the player defeats it.
