N (Japanese: エヌ N) is an antagonist of the manga series Pokémon Adventures.


N, in the manga, is very similar to how he apprears in the games and anime.


N first appears in Black's First Trainer Battle, where he watches Black set off to battle his first Gym. After Black manages to save an Xtransceiver commercial shooting from a wild Galvantula attack, N sheds tears from seeing Pokémon being used by humans.

In Accumula Town, N appears to confront and battle Black. He expresses his disgust at the Pokédex by claiming that Trainers lock up his "friends" in Poké Balls to fill the Pokédex with information, thus making them nothing more than a source for said information. Eventually, Black's Tep manages to defeat his Tympole, so N decides to take his leave after learning that there are Pokémon that enjoy the company of Trainers. After leaving, Black reveals that N isn't really a bad person after his Musha used his ability to eat dreams and show the contents of them to others.

At Nimbasa City, N knocks White into one of the Ferris wheel cars and climbs into it. After a brief talk, N forces White's Gigi to fight his Servine. After Gigi wins, N concludes that White had been neglecting Gigi's battle skills. When White tries to escape, she is shocked to see Gigi side with N instead of her and falls hard to ground below. As the two watch from the Rondez-View Ferris wheel, N sends his Servine to White's aid.

Later, N and Gigi arrive at the Dragonspiral Tower. As he stares at the building, N muses over the location where Truth and Ideals meet while Gigi watches him. Later, he successfully awakens Zekrom, but initially has trouble connecting with it and convincing it to join his side. Eventually, he manages to convince it to join his cause, making him the Hero of Ideals. At Route 6, N encounters Alder and challenges the Champion to a Double Battle. As they battle, Black, White, and Iris all arrive to witness N defeating Alder with Zorua and Gigi. Reacting to N's Zekrom, the Light Stone in Black's possession turns into Reshiram, but quickly reverts, signifying that Black doesn't have full control over it. Having defeated the Pokémon League Champion, N believes that more people will listen Team Plasma's ideal.

As he attempts to leave, N is attacked by a Samurott owned by Cedric Juniper who demands to know where the captured Gym Leaders are. Together, Black, White, and Cedric defeat Gigi and Zorua. Cedric reveals that a year ago, N broke into his lab and liberated the set of starter Pokémon that he was going to give to new Trainers, leaving Snivy with N, Tepig in an unknown location, and Oshawott to stay with Cedric. N accuses Professor Juniper as the cause of the suffering of Pokémon with her distributing of starters, but is stopped by Black's Pokémon. Before they can do anything, N points that they can't win, causing Black's team to back off. Confused, Black attempts to use Musha to clear his head and allow him to think properly, but the Dream Eater Pokémon simply runs away. N reveals that Musha doesn't like the taste of Black's dreams anymore, so he has no reason to stay at Black's side anymore. The shock of his Pokémon leaving him causes Black to faint from the shock. N leaves on Zekrom and has his Pokémon take the third Unova Pokédex and destroy it. As he flies away, N hears Zekrom's voice and learns that it wants to battle Black again when he has Reshiram fully awakened.

Once the League tournament ended, Team Plasma begins their attack by summoning their castle from the depths of the earth. N, along with the Seven Sages begin their assault as the Grunts surround the people below. Black, having awakened Reshiram, battles N at the top of the castle. Black initially has trouble fighting with Reshiram, but gets help from Cedric Juniper to better learn Reshiram's types and Abilities. By exploiting the power of Fusion Flare, Black deals heavy damage to Zekrom, but it and N escape to inside the castle with Black and Reshiram following after. Once inside, the two continue their battle, but a second Zekrom appears to assist the first, much to the shock of both. Black sees through the ruse and attacks the real Zekrom, defeating it. The second Zekrom reveals itself to be Zorua, who had remained to help N despite him releasing all of his friends prior to the attack on the League. Black tells N that despite the release, Zorua truly cares for N and wants to stay with it. N understands Zorua's wishes, but quickly passes out. After Black defeats Ghetsis and meets up with White, N awakens. He thanks Black and White for helping him see the error of his ways. He decides to go on his own path and bids them farewell as he leaves on Zekrom's back, leaving Zorua behind.

N's Zekrom
Main article: Tao trio (Adventures)

Zekrom was initially sealed within the Dark Stone, which was held at the Nacrene Gym alongside Reshiram's Light Stone. After being stolen by the Shadow Triad, the Dark Stone was delivered by Ghetsis to N, who immediately revived Zekrom from it. Although initially hostile towards N, Zekrom eventually turned over to N's side and chose him as the Hero of Ideals. When Black obtained the Light Stone, Zekrom expressed the desire to fight Black as the Hero of Truth once he fully awakened Reshiram. Zekrom's wish was granted at the Pokémon League, where it and N fought Black and Reshiram atop of N's Castle. Since Black didn't have full control over Reshiram, he initially struggled, but eventually Zekrom was defeated when Reshiram fired a Fusion Flare, made stronger by Fusion Bolt, at it. At the end of the Black & White chapter, N said his goodbyes and flew off on Zekrom after learning the error of his ways.
