Other Colress Machines

In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, it is revealed that Colress Machine is a code name Colress designates to some of his inventions. The first two machines are Colress Machine No. 1198 (Japanese: アクロママシーン 1198 Achroma Machine No. 1198) and Colress Machine No. 1199 (Japanese: アクロママシーン 1199 Achroma Machine No. 1199), also known as the N-Solarizer and N-Lunarizer, respectively. Colress co-developed these machines with the Ultra Recon Squad in an effort to control Necrozma's power.

In Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon's Episode RR, Colress uses another machine, Colress Machine No. 1102 (Japanese: アクロママシーン 1102 Achroma Machine No. 1102), to return Ghetsis back to the world he came from, saving Lillie in the process. While after the player defeats Giovanni, Colress is able to use the machine to undo Team Rainbow Rocket's changes to Lusamine's mansion.

The Colress Machine in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

The Colress Machine first appeared in Flying Type and Innocent Scientist, where Colress was shown using it to control Genesect into attacking Blake and Looker. In Unforgettable Memories, Colress reported favorable results from his first test of his invention. Later, in Colress Machine, Whitley's mother revealed that Colress's machine was capable of controlling Pokémon. In Therian Forme III, Colress used the machine to take control of Zinzolin's Kyurem and had it board the Plasma Frigate.

In Innocent Scientist, it was revealed that Colress had already begun the machine's development two years earlier, but some members of Team Plasma had opposed his work, as it ran contrary to their beliefs. As such, they had secretly developed a method to stop the machine's influence on Pokémon, and the memory card containing that data had been entrusted to a twelve-year-old girl.
