Character History

201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201

Past

Ever since he was a child, N had the ability to communicate with Pokémon. His behavior caused those around him to call him a freak, and for N to be isolated from humans. He was later adopted by Ghetsis, who would bring him injured and abused Pokémon for N to communicate with. This caused N to mistrust humans, and for him to seek the liberation of all Pokémon.

A year before the events of the Black & White chapter, he was crowned King of Team Plasma.

Black & White chapter

N first appears after Black sets off to battle his first Gym. He later witnessed him save a Xtransceiver commercial shooting from a wild Galvantula attack. Once the ordeal ends, N sheds tears from seeing Pokémon being used by humans.

N finally confronts Black at Accumula Town to battle him. During the battle, N 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. After a tough battle, Black's Tep manages to defeat N's Tympole, which shows N that there are some Pokémon that enjoy the company of their Trainers. After N leaves, Black sees a dream from N's past that his Musha ate and produced with its Dream Mist. Seeing a young N surrounded by Pokémon makes Black wonder if N isn't truly a bad person.

N later traps White on the Rondez-View Ferris Wheel in order to talk with her. After finishing their conversation, N talks to White's Gigi and asks if wants to battle like Black's Tepig did. N has his Servine grab Gigi, which forces it to knock Servine out with an Ember. White, shocked at Gigi's joy at battling, chooses to open the car door and jump out. White tells Gigi to come with her, but falls out of the car after seeing Gigi choose to join N instead. As White lies on the ground unconscious, N reveals that he intends on defeating the League Champion. Afterward, he sends Servine down to assist White.

After N receives the Dark Stone from Ghetsis, he successfully awakens Zekrom, the Legendary Dragon Pokémon of Ideals. After some initial struggles, N successfully convinces Zekrom to join his cause, thus becoming the Hero of Ideals. N encounters Alder at Route 6 and challenges the Champion to a Double Battle. After a long battle, Alder is defeated by N, which Black, White, and Iris arrive in time to see. Reacting to Zekrom's presence, the Light Stone in Black's possession turns into Reshiram, but quickly reverts back into stone form, signifying that Black doesn't have full control over it. Having emerged victorious over the Pokémon League Champion, N claims that more people will begin to listen to Team Plasma's ideals.

As he attempts to leave, N is attacked by a Samurott owned by Cedric Juniper who demands to know where the Gym Leaders that were captured by Team Plasma are being held. Together, Black, White, and Cedric manage to defeat N's Pokémon. Cedric reveals that a year ago, N broke into his lab and liberated a set of starter Pokémon that he was going to give to new Trainers. The Snivy stayed with N, the Tepig ran out in the rain, while Oshawott chose to stay with Cedric. N accuses Cedric as the cause of the suffering of Pokémon with their distributing of starters.

Trying to figure out a way to stop N, 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. After reviving his Pokémon, N leaves on Zekrom while Zorua and Tympole destroy the third Unova Pokédex. As he flies away, N hears Zekrom's voice and learns that it wants to battle Black again when Reshiram has fully awakened.

During the Pokémon League, Team Plasma begins their attack by summoning N's 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 him. N thanks Zorua, but scolds it for its actions just before passing 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.

Black 2 & White 2 chapter

Two years later, N and Zekrom are seen flying towards Unova alongside the Light Stone, having reacted to the power of Kyurem.

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 and White chapter, N said his goodbyes and flew off on Zekrom after learning the error of his ways. It is level 50, has a Naughty nature, and its Characteristic is "often lost in thought."
