The Colossus Ruins are a newly discovered set of ruins linked to an ancient city. They come with puzzles for explorers to solve if they want to the face the Colossus. The ruins are filled with traps, including doors in the floor, rolling boulders, and sections of wall that threaten to hit passersby. They are triggered whenever a plate with a symbol, similar to the ones on a Golurk, is pressed.

Ash and Goh visited the Colossus Ruins, meeting Kira and the leader of the ruins excavation team along the way. As Ash and Goh traveled through the ruins, they encountered a collection of Pokémon along the way, with Goh catching a Sandile, while Ash tried to catch a Woobat, only to step into a trap before he could do so. Exploring the ruins, Ash, Goh, and Kira found a room with two Cofagrigus that had trapped Shane Seeker and his Psyduck. They were able to free them, warding off the Cofagrigus in the process.

The group soon reached a large hall where they worked together to solve a puzzle that uncovered the Colossus, which was revealed to be a giant Golurk. The group engaged in a Raid Battle against the Golurk, and after it was defeated, Goh was able to catch it. Finishing their exploration, they came across a chamber made of pure gold.

The ruins reappeared in Trial on a Golden Scale!. Ash and Goh returned there in the hopes of finding a Volcarona for Goh's Project Mew Trial Mission. However, the excavation team leader told them that Pokémon hunters had recently disturbed the Volcarona, so they had stopped coming to the ruins. He showed them a carving of Volcarona in the chamber of gold and directed them to an abandoned mine town nearby to find the Sun Pokémon.
