According to Dusknoir, Luxray's clan, or in Explorers of Sky Manectric's clan, was once a peaceful tribe, roaming around in search of a place for temporary rest. However, once they were attacked by a fearsome foe, and ever since they always "strike first for fear of being stricken". They reside in Amp Plains often, for it is cloaked by thunderstorms during parts of the year. During the time in which the player adventures, Team Skull takes Azurill's Water Float and places it in Amp Plains, within Luxray or Manectric's habitat. The player and partner go to regain it. The player tries to hide from the clan, to find it useless; Luxray claims to see any that hide while Manectric would prefer that they hide so he could sneak up quietly from behind. Realizing that hiding is useless, they stand up to the challenge, but find themselves surrounded.
After the fight, as Luxray or Manectric uses a last-ditch attack that resembles Charge Beam, Dusknoir blocks it, saving the player and partner. The clan then leaves, never seen again.
