Colress in Pokémon Adventures
|Member of||Team Plasma (formerly)|
Colress is generally a moody and expressive person, acting almost childish at times. His main goal is to unlock the full potential of Pokémon, by using the machine he constructed. He laments about how the Team Plasma sages are not powerful enough and are beneath him, though he does respect his "old friend", Ghetsis. Feel insulted if someone says about his inventions as "inperfect", like during Blake's attempt to catch Genesect.
Colress debuted in Hallway Hijinks, where he participated as a competitor in the Pokémon League. Disguised as the cloak-bearing Hood Man (Japanese: フードマン Hood Man), he managed to sneak in without having earned any of the eight Unova Gym Badges. After battling his way through Victory Road, he eventually made it into the top 8.
In The Tournament Continues, Colress faced Marlon. Although Marlon managed to disable the moves of Colress' Beheeyem, Colress came out on top and advanced to the next round. After leaving, he noted that participating in the League and observing powerful Trainers would help him in his research. In Something Suspicious, Colress faced Cheren in the semifinals. Although Cheren initially struggled due to his Snivy's lack of strength, he switched it out for his Unfezant and quickly defeated Colress's Beheeyem with a U-turn.
In True Friends, Colress and Zinzolin watched Black and Cheren face each other in the finals. During the match, they talked about Zinzolin's theory that a cold heart was the best way to bring out a Pokémon's true strength. Although Zinzolin stated that his theory was correct, Colress noted that - in his battles - he was able to see varying styles from many strong Trainers that brought out their Pokémon's strength. When White discovered that the two were affiliated with Team Plasma, she attempted to expose them to everyone at the League. Although she was successful, Colress had his Beheeyem use Teleport to transport her to N's room inside his castle.
In Cold Hard Truth, Team Plasma attacked the League, summoning N's Castle from the depths of the earth to surround the League building. Colress assisted in the invasion by using Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus to battle the Elite Four. His true intention was to discover the secret of how to transform the three into their Therian Formes. After discovering that he needed a special mirror, Colress bid farewell to the Elite Four and escaped.
In A Difficult Parting, Colress used his Beheeyem to help Ghetsis escape after he was defeated by Black. With Beheeyem's power, Ghetsis caused Black to be sealed into the Light Stone before making his escape. Afterward, Ghetsis thanked Colress for his assistance with Team Plasma's plans and expressed interest in working with him again. Colress agreed, but on the condition that it didn't impede with his research.
Eventually, Colress was made the new leader of Team Plasma in N's absence. In Mr. Perfect, Colress attacked Aspertia City with Genesect as a test-run of his Colress Machine. He was confronted by Blake and Looker of the International Police. After realizing that it was still wild, Blake used his Dewott to whittle down Genesect's health enough for him to capture it. Defeated, Colress commended Blake's strength and left, revealing that he was made the new leader of Team Plasma and that Ghetsis was planning a comeback. Later, Colress met with Ghetsis on the Plasma Frigate and stated that they needed to find Zinzolin, who had been ignoring their calls.
In Angry Boy, Colress confronted Zinzolin at the Cold Storage, demanding to know why he had been refusing to answer. Zinzolin revealed that he managed to capture Kyurem, the third Unova Legendary Dragon Pokémon. Colress praised Zinzolin for his success, but demanded that he hand Kyurem to him, angering Zinzolin into attacking. During the battle, Colress realized that Zinzolin's true intention was to have Kyurem fuse with Reshiram or Zekrom through Absofusion. Following Kyurem's trail, Blake arrived at the Pokémon World Tournament construction site, where he witnessed Thundurus and Landorus defeating Zinzolin. Upon spotting Blake, Colress used the Reveal Glass to turn Thundurus and Landorus into their Therian Formes.
In Therian Forme III, Blake tried arresting the unconscious Zinzolin, only for him to be taken away by Colress, who wished to use his knowledge of Kyurem to Team Plasma's advantage. With the Colress Machine, Colress took control of Kyurem and commanded it to attack, but was stopped by Ghetsis, who appeared with the Plasma Frigate. Ghetsis had Kyurem loaded into a special room on the ship. Blake tried stopping them, but was attacked by the Shadow Triad, allowing the Plasma Frigate to take off and fly through the air. The Plasma Frigate was flown to Castelia City, where it froze several buildings and people with its special Kyurem-powered cannon. When the traitor to Team Plasma, Rood, appeared, Ghetsis ordered Colress to capture the former Sage. Rood was saved by Whitley, who pushed him out of the way, only to get captured herself. Annoyed that Rood managed to escape, Colress had Whitley locked in an empty cabin.
In Flying Ship, Whitley was broken out of her cabin by Blake, who teamed up with her to free Kyurem from Colress' control. They destroyed the chamber where Kyurem was kept, but it was empty, as the Plasma Frigate had already drained enough energy to freeze all of Unova. Colress had Kyurem freeze Blake and Whitley solid before commanding some Grunts to throw them into the ocean. Afterward, Colress realized that Kyurem appeared before Zinzolin because it was attracted to Reshiram and Zekrom's power when they awakened. He then speculated that because of Kyurem's power, Reshiram and Zekrom may return to Unova.
In N Returns, Colress gave Ghetsis control over Kyurem so he could use it to battle N, who had appeared to stop them. Later, Ghetsis obtained the DNA Splicers and used them on Kyurem, who reverted Zekrom back into the Dark Stone, trapping N inside with it. Kyurem absorbed the Dark Stone, transforming itself into Black Kyurem. Reacting to Zekrom's absorption, the Light Stone reverted to Reshiram, freeing Black in the process. Black and White briefly fought Kyurem, but were distracted when N was suddenly ejected from the Dark Stone, allowing Ghetsis to launch an attack and escape. After being tossed aside by Ghetsis, Colress secretly took N aboard the Plasma Frigate, curious about his ability to hear the voices of Pokémon.
In Deduction Time, Colress and Ghetsis followed Kyurem, who had started moving towards the Giant Chasm of its own free will. After arriving, Colress retook control of Kyurem and had it attack the Unova Pokédex holders. When Kyurem stopped listening to Colress's commands, Rood appeared, revealing that a machine designed to counter the Colress Machine had been activated. Refusing to give up, Colress tried commanding Kyurem again, only for it to revert to its normal form and absorb Reshiram to become White Kyurem. Accepting his loss, Colress decided to quit Team Plasma and flee, only for Blake to pursue him while riding on Genesect. Colress responded by sending out a Red Genesect, which he boasted as being far more powerful.
In The Final Battle: Crushed Ambition, Colress was struck by Kelden, who had changed into its Resolute Form. The attack only ended up shattering the Reveal Glass, reverting Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus back into their Incarnate Formes. As the battle continued, Blake realized Colress was using a second, improved version of the Colress Machine to control his Genesect. When Blake's team took down Colress's Beheeyem and destroyed the device, the Red Genesect threw Colress off of its back, sending him plummeting towards the ground. Blake tried to save Colress, but the scientist ordered his Genesect to fire a Techno Blast at him, revealing it was truly his Pokémon and the second Colress Machine was merely a distraction. Blake survived due his defense suit, only for Colress to command his Genesect to fire a second shot. Blake sent out an Escavalier and had it jam Genesect's cannon, causing it to backfire and explode, knocking both Pokémon out. Blake was then assisted by Victini, a Pokémon with a grudge against Team Plasma, who sought to capture it two years ago. Once his last Pokémon was taken out, Colress admitted his loss, only for Kyurem to appear and gain a opportunity to get revenge on the scientist, freezing him solid. Afterward, Colress was captured and taken into International Police custody.
In Epilogue: Graduation Ceremony, Colress is revealed he's still in custody, binded and gagged, interrogated about his research and experiments, though effects are leaved a lot to be desired. However, International Police managed to discover about request of Colress' pressence on Alola region, so they decided send a replacement for scientist.
Since Colress was arrested, there's unknown about current status of his Pokémon, though they could be confiscated or arrested as well.
|Beheeyem is Colress's first known Pokémon. Beheeyem was used to manipulate weak-minded people into releasing their Pokémon so that more people would be influenced by this and do the same. He was first used to battle Marlon's Jellicent and despite having Energy Ball disabled via Cursed Body, he won with a super effective Shadow Ball. Later, he was used against Cheren's Unfezant and was defeated by a super effective U-turn. When White attempted to rat Colress out, Beheeyem was used to Teleport her out of the stadium. Beheeyem also freed Ghetsis from a Stone Edge trap, slammed Black against Reshiram as it retracted into the Light Stone, and Teleported Ghetsis and Colress away from N's Castle.|
