The Plasma Frigate (Japanese: プラズマフリゲート Plasma Frigate) is a flying ship that serves as Team Plasma's main means of transportation in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2. It docks at various locations throughout Unova, first appearing at Prime Pier in Castelia City, and later appearing at the Pokémon World Tournament's harbor, at Opelucid City, outside Seaside Cave in a secluded area of Route 21, and at the Giant Chasm. After the player has defeated Ghetsis, it is permanently docked at the P2 Laboratory.

The sub-levels of the ship are different depending on the version played: Black 2 has a warp tile puzzle on B1F and a password puzzle on B2F, while it is the opposite in White 2, with a password puzzle on B1F and a warp panel puzzle on B2F.

The ship is powered by both Kyurem and solar panels, as conventional power sources won't be usable when Unova is covered in ice.

One of the female Team Plasma Grunts on B1F will add Zekrom and Reshiram's seen entries to the player's Pokédex.

Black 2 & White 2 chapter

The Plasma Frigate debuts in Unforgettable Memories. It was created by Team Plasma to wage war on the Unova region after their defeat two years prior.

The Frigate is fully unveiled in Therian Forme III, where it is taken to the abandoned Cold Storage in Driftveil City, where Colress is battling against Blake. Using his Colress Machine, Colress takes control of the Kyurem that Zinzolin had captured and has it enter a special room. Afterwards, Colress activates the Plasma Frigate's engines, allowing the ship to fly through the air. Although Blake successfully gets on the ship's deck before it flies away, Colress decides to let him roam free.

The Plasma Frigate is then flown to Castelia City, where Colress attacks the city with the ship's Kyurem Cannon. The beam fired from the cannon freezes several buildings and people in an instant. Shortly afterwards, Ghetsis spots Rood, a traitor to Team Plasma, and orders Colress to capture him. Colress reluctantly agrees, but ends up accidentally grabbing Whitley instead. After Rood escapes, Whitley is thrown into an empty cabin and held prisoner.

After Blake frees Whitley from the cabin, they team up to try and free Kyurem from the machine powering the Kyurem Cannon. Though they successfully destroy the machine, they find out that Kyurem wasn't inside. Colress appears and reveals that they already drained enough energy to power the ship and freeze all of Unova. Colress summons Kyurem and has it freeze Blake and Whitley and then commands some Grunts to have the two thrown into the ocean. Afterwards, Colress sets off to freeze more of Unova's cities.

As of Pink Slip, the Plasma Frigate has successfully frozen over seven different populated areas across the Unova region.

In Giant Chasm, the Plasma Frigate arrives at the Giant Chasm after following Kyurem there, taking off again when Colress loses control of Kyurem and it starts to threaten the flying ship. In The Final Battle: Crushed Ambition, N, Looker, Alder, and Whitley confront Ghetsis in a storage room full of Poké Balls containing the Pokémon "liberated" by Team Plasma. The confrontation leads to an explosion that tears open the ship, causing all the Poké Balls to fall out and the ship to fly out of control, which eventually leads to it colliding into N's Castle and requiring all the Unova starter Pokémon to combine their pledge moves to put our the resulting fire.

Trivia

  • In Pokémon Black 2, while the Frigate is at the Giant Chasm, one of the Team Plasma Grunts on B2F claims to be a former member of Team Galactic.
  • The player can use Dig and Teleport to exit the Plasma Frigate, but not Fly.
  • The Plasma Frigate specifically being a frigate may be a reference to the words "frigid" and "refrigerate", referring to the ship's ability to freeze large areas.
