In the anime

Reveal Glass in the anime

The Reveal Glass first appeared in Meloetta and the Undersea Temple!, where Team Rocket used Meloetta's recorded song in order to open its seal inside the Abyssal Ruins. Giovanni then used it to summon and subsequently transform the Forces of Nature into their Therian Formes so that he could use them to take over Unova.

When Ash's Pikachu freed Meloetta with Electro Ball, Giovanni was overcome by the Reveal Glass's power, causing him to send the Legendary Pokémon on a rampage to destroy the region instead. Giovanni was eventually released from its possession when Jessie, James, and Meowth pushed him out of the spell circle. After Team Rocket's subsequent retreat, Ridley used the Reveal Glass and Meloetta's song to calm down the rampaging Legendary Pokémon. Afterwards, both the Abyssal Ruins and the Reveal Glass sunk beneath the waves once again.

Black & White chapter

The Reveal Glass was first hinted at in The Power of Dreams, where Hood Man realized that the Forces of Nature needed a special mirror to unlock their alternate forms.

Black 2 & White 2 chapter

Team Plasma managed to obtain the Reveal Glass sometime before Legendary Tornadus, where a group of Team Plasma Grunts used it on Tornadus from a distance while attempting to capture Giallo.

The Reveal Glass made its first proper appearance in Colress Machine, where it was shown to be in Colress's possession, using it to transform Thundurus and Landorus into their Therian Formes to fight Blake.

In The Final Battle: Crushed Ambition, Kelden accidentally broke the Reveal Glass while trying to strike down Colress, causing the Forces of Nature to revert to their Incarnate Formes and allowing the Swords of Justice to defeat them.



The Reveal Glass may be based on the Demon Detecting Mirror, an item in Chinese mythology that could reflect the true identity of a yaoguai.
