Newton Graceland (Japanese: ムゲン・グレイスランド Mugen Graceland) is a major character who appeared in Giratina and the Sky Warrior. He is a talented scholar and has studied the Reverse World for five years.
In the movies
Newton was Zero's mentor in the past. Together, they designed the Megarig, a machine that would copy the power of Giratina to travel between dimensions, thus allowing them free access to the Reverse World at will. Although they had been close previously, the two clashed when Newton discovered that his invention would harm Giratina, possibly sacrificing it, which would violate the researcher's oath of never harming a Pokémon. He therefore erased the designs.
In the movie, Newton was first seen saving Ash and Dawn from Giratina after they first entered the Reverse World. He formally introduced himself and explained his knowledge on the Reverse World. Newton also revealed that he had witnessed the clash between Dialga and Palkia, which caused the Reverse World to become filled with toxic gas clouds, a by-product of the Reverse World's attempts to correct irregularities in the space-time continuum. He went on to help Ash and Dawn locate a portal to use to return to the real world.
Newton later met Jessie, James, and Meowth, who were marooned in the Reverse World, and quickly befriended the trio. Ash and his friends then caught up with Newton after they returned to the Reverse World and were shocked to see Team Rocket with him. Later, Zero arrived on the scene, captured Shaymin, and had it use Seed Flare, allowing himself, Giratina, Newton, Ash, and his friends to be ejected into the real world at Gracidea.
Later, after Zero managed to rebuild and then deploy the Megarig, Newton was forced to hack into the device's central computer and destroy it himself, thus freeing Giratina. Afterwards, Newton, along with Dawn and Brock, watched as a glacier began to move after Zero began destroying its supports in the Reverse World. Regigigas and a herd of Mamoswine went on to stop the glacier from causing further destruction and they trapped Zero in the ice.
He stayed with Ash and his friends to watch Shaymin and its friends depart the Gracidea flower garden. Newton appeared to have reconciled with Zero at the end of the movie, as he helped him out of the frozen Megarig, both cracking a smile at each other.
Newton reappeared in the ending credits of Arceus and the Jewel of Life, where he visited Zero in prison after recovering surviving data of Infi from the Megarig.
Newton has a strong, almost obsessive interest in the Reverse World, but this led him to design the Megarig, a machine that would allow him to travel between the real and Reverse Worlds at the expense of Giratina's freedom. After realizing the potential for harm, Newton quickly deleted the prototype's blueprints.
When Ash and Dawn first met Newton, they found him to be boastful after he noted that he was the top Reverse World researcher in the world. They quickly came to respect him, however, after he helped them navigate the hazards of the Reverse World and willingly shared his knowledge with them.
Newton is a master of machinery. His expansive backpack was shown to contain numerous robotic arms, which appear to be able to move seemingly at will in order to manipulate objects, or, as shown in the movie, type on a computer keyboard. He also utilizes a small, handheld computer and a high-tech viewing lens, although both are handled by the robotic arms. The small handheld computer guides Newton in his adventure in the Reverse World, it also shows the location of the portal.
