Ruby & Sapphire chapter

Glacia and the other Elite Four members are called by Steven to help protect the Hoenn region from the battle between Groudon and Kyogre. Glacia was initially stationed at Island Cave as part of the plan to unseal Regirock, Regice, and Registeel. When the legendary titans are unsealed, Glacia is tasked with controlling Regice alongside Phoebe. The Elite Four, Steven, and Wallace all control the three Pokémon in three pairs of two and use their power to keep the power released from Groudon and Kyogre's battle from spreading throughout Hoenn. They manage to keep the power contained for several weeks, but the strain is too much for Steven and he eventually dies, causing the three Pokémon to lash out and flee. Glacia later mourns Steven's death before his revival at the hands of Ruby's Celebi.

Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire chapter

Glacia, along with various people from around Hoenn, is called to Sootopolis City to assist in stopping Grand Meteor Delta, a giant meteoroid threatening to destroy the planet. When the plan to attack Grand Meteor Delta starts, Glacia and the others have their Pokémon attack the meteoroid at the same time. This, combined with the might of Mega Rayquaza, successfully shatters Grand Meteor Delta into pieces.
