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

Suicune enters the Ruins of Alph and sees Bugsy tell some researchers about the Unown. Suddenly, an Unown G comes off the wall. Bugsy sends out his Heracross and then uses his net to catch the Unown. Bugsy walks off and sees something and decides to follow it.

He ends up at a chamber that has UnownA.pngUnownN.pngUnownA.pngUnownN.pngUnownU.pngUnownK.pngUnownE.png written on it, which means Escape. Bugsy gets out an Escape Rope and the wall in front of him crumbles, but is protected by debris by his Heracross.

Behind the rubble is Suicune, who starts to battle Bugsy. He sends out his two Metapod and Kakuna. Heracross rams into Suicune, but is thrown upward by Suicune. The Metapod and Kakuna all use String Shot and some more sticky material comes out of Bugsy's net. He reveals that it is a Capture Net, which uses the same material as Poké Balls. Suicune starts to be pulled into a Poké Ball, but breaks the net with an Aurora Beam. Then Bugsy sees the next chamber's inscription: UnownH.pngUnownO.pngUnownU.pngUnownO.pngUnownU.png. The next day, Bugsy tells the research forum that the inscription translates to "Ho-Oh".

  • Bugsy
  • Bugsy's colleagues




  • The Unown symbols that Bugsy finds translates to 'ANANUKE' yet when Bugsy's device translates it, it becomes 'ROPE ESCAPE". When he finds another set of symbols that translates to 'HOUOU', Bugsy translates it to Ho-Oh. Houou is the Japanese name for Ho-Oh.
    • Technically, that isn't an error, only a double translation. The 'ANANUKE' is the romaji of a shortened version of the Japanese name for Escape Rope. Since the symbols were backwards, the translation will be backwards too.
