A mysterious meteorite is hurtling towards the earth, while another is heading toward the planet Origin. During the entry of the meteorite into the atmosphere, it almost wounds Rayquaza, the legendary sky guardian and the strongest dragon ever seen in the world. The meteorite crashes into a polar zone, revealing two egg-shaped sparkling objects. Just after the purple egg regenerates into a Deoxys and picks up its green companion (which has not regenerated), Rayquaza descends from the ozone layer to battle what it believes to be an invader. A battle ensues, destroying a nearby research site and traumatizing a young boy, scared by a stampede of Spheal, Sealeo, and Walrein. The purple Deoxys traps Rayquaza and is about to beat it, but it is distracted by some electrical charges coming from broken computers, giving Rayquaza a chance to escape and obliterate the purple Deoxys with its Hyper Beam. The purple Deoxys goes back to egg form and falls into the sea, while some researchers take the green egg with them. Deep beneath the surface, the injured Deoxys regenerates and prepares for the day it can search for its friend. The green egg somehow appears on Origin, somewhere in Hoenn.

Four years later, Ash, May, Brock, and Max travel to Battle Tower. There they meet Tory (Tou'i), a boy who is afraid of Pokémon because of psychological trauma that had ensued from the stampede caused by the battle between Deoxys and Rayquaza. Tory is found to be a loner. The purple Deoxys, which has fully healed, leaves to find the other green egg which Tory's parents are testing in a lab.

In the Battle Tower, Ash mistakes Tory for a Pokémon trainer and they battle together in a two-on-two combat against Rafe and Sid, with Tory using Torkoal (Ash's). However, Tory does not know how to handle Ash's Torkoal and they lose disgracefully. Tory flees from the Tower and runs away, stopping to save a Minun which was trapped in an automatic trash can. Later on, Ash meets Tory's parents and they all have fun that night with their Pokémon, until they see a mysterious purple aurora, signaling the return of the purple Deoxys.

When the purple Deoxys begins to remove all of its inhabitants in order to fulfill its search for the green egg, it is up to Ash, Pikachu (Ash's), and Tory to help the Deoxys by finding the green egg. This task is complicated by the return of Rayquaza, and security robots malfunctioning. The city was filled with blocks of robots almost destroying Rayquaza, but with the help of Green and purple Deoxys, they saved him.
