From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Goone (Japanese: グーン Goon) is the secondary antagonist of Zoroark: Master of Illusions. He is an employee of the Kodai Network Group and Grings Kodai's right-hand man and bodyguard.
Sometime prior to the events of the film, Goone became aware of his superior Kodai's ability to have future visions and how he acquired that ability. He eventually introduced Kodai to his new executive secretary, Rowena, at the Kodai Network Group's headquarters. The pair witnessed Kodai experience a future vision; Goone informed Rowena that it was Kodai's first vision in some time.
Goone made his first appearance in the film, piloting Kodai's flying boat to Crown City while Kodai and Rowena conducted a test of Zoroark's abilities. While monitoring the ship's security system, Goone saw Zorua evade his Scizor and escape from the ship. He informed Kodai of these events, but Kodai was unconcerned about them.
Later that day, Kodai managed to get Crown City evacuated via forcing Zoroark to create illusions of the city's destruction by Raikou, Entei and Suicune. Once this was done, Goone entered the city in his amphibious vehicle accompanied by his Scizor and Ninjask. Using one of Kodai's illusion generators, he led Zoroark into a trap, collecting her in an electrified crate and returning her to confinement aboard the ship. While he carried out this task, however, Kodai discovered the presence of Ash and his friends in Crown City. Kodai contacted Goone and summoned him to aid in capturing them, which he did by trapping them in a crate similar to Zoroark's. Before leaving the ship to rejoin Kodai in the search for the Time Ripple, Goone informed Rowena of his activity, unknowingly almost catching her snooping in Kodai's secret files.
Unable to find the Time Ripple, Kodai experienced another vision, revealing Celebi's role in leading him to its location. Goone accompanied Kodai and loaned his boss his swarm of Ninjask to overpower Celebi, only for Ash and his friends, along with Karl and Rowena, to interfere. Unlike Kodai, who saw Rowena's betrayal coming in one of his visions, Goone was completely surprised by this turn of events.
Once he and Kodai learned of the Time Ripple's true location — the Pokémon Baccer World Cup stadium — by using one of Kodai's secret cameras, Goone tried to drive Kodai there, but was forced to leave Kodai to reach it alone when Dawn and Brock blocked their path. Goone used his Pokémon to battle Dawn's Mamoswine, Brock's Croagunk and Brock's Sudowoodo, but he was defeated when the enraged Zoroark appeared and used her Night Daze to blow him and his Pokémon away. Goone was left unconscious in an alley with his Pokémon while Dawn, Brock and Zoroark went to help Ash defeat Kodai.
In the ending credits, it was shown that Goone was arrested alongside Kodai and brought to jail.
Goone is completely loyal to Kodai, going so far as to ignore the effects of Kodai's various crimes. He is one of the few people Kodai seems to trust, as he is fully aware of Kodai's evil nature and dark secrets, but Kodai still does not trust him with everything, as he was caught by surprise by Rowena's betrayal while Kodai foresaw it. Goone's loyalty extends as far as him having a violent, destructive streak much like his boss, though his actions are more businesslike and lack the same cruelty Kodai often enjoys showing.

|| Ninjask (multiple)
| As well as Scizor, Goone has many Ninjask at his disposal which can be used for a wide variety of tasks from capturing and transporting Pokémon to attacking larger Pokémon en masse (as they did against Dawn's Mamoswine). However, they were no match for Zoroark, who ultimately took them all out with a single Night Daze.
Ninjask's only known move is Shadow Ball.
