Hoopa (anime)

1 byte added, 04:04, 15 October 2017
Over the recent years, Hoopa was taken care of by Ghris's great-grandchildren, [[Baraz]] and [[Meray]] in the [[Arche Valley]]. As seen in ''[[SS034|Hoopa — The Mischief Pokémon]]'', Hoopa enjoyed playing with the siblings, especially the more playful Meray, in their youth. During the events of ''[[M18|Hoopa and the Clash of Ages]]'', one of Hoopa's pranks resulted in it pulling {{Ash}} and {{AP|Pikachu}} through its ring to it. It quickly became friends with the two, playfully calling them "Ashkan" and "Pikan" respectively. [[Ash's friends]] soon joined them and met Meray.
Later, the group encountered Baraz, who had retrieved the Prison Bottle from its hiding place. Upon touching it, he had however become possessed by Hoopa's Unbound Forme's power, which forced him to release it from the bottle. Upon being released, Hoopa Unbound took over Hoopa's body and went on a rampage, forcing Meray to reseal it back into the Prison Bottle. Baraz and Meray explained Hoopa's backstory to the group, also explaining why Hoopa couldn't travel through its own rings. The Prison Bottle was later stolen by {{TRT}}, and Hoopa Unbound possessed {{MTR}} to make him open the bottle once again. Baraz and Meray helped Hoopa to resist the power taking over it, and eventually succeeded in preventing that. Unfortunately, the Prison Bottle then suddenly broke into pieces, and Hoopa Unbound formed from the unsealed power. Baraz explained that the form was in fact Hoopa's "shadow", formed of Hoopa's anger of being imprisoned for a hundred years. It had destroyed the Prison Bottle to prevent itself from being sealed again. Fortunately, Baraz knew how to create a new Prison Bottle, so he and the rest of the group headed to [[Dahara Tower]] to do so, while Ash and Pikachu protected Hoopa from the shadow.
Hoopa summoned {{p|Lugia}} to battle the shadow, and later also {{p|Latios}}, {{p|Latias}}, and a {{Shiny}} {{p|Rayquaza}} as reinforcements. In counter, Hoopa Unbound summoned [[Primal Reversion|Primal]] {{p|Groudon}}, Primal {{p|Kyogre}}, {{p|Dialga}}, {{p|Palkia}}, {{p|Giratina}}, and {{p|Kyurem}} to fight against them. A climactic battle ensued, during which Baraz managed to recreate the Prison Bottle, which was then once again used to seal Hoopa Unbound. Unfortunately, Ash ended up touching the bottle, causing him to become possessed by the shadow. Thankfully, Hoopa was able to make up with the shadow, dispelling the darkness inside it and setting Ash free. Hoopa then proceeded to save the citizens of Dahara City from the space-time distortion caused by the summoning of all the Legendary Pokémon, even overcoming its disability to travel through its own rings in the process. Afterwards, Hoopa decided to help in repairing the damages done to the city before returning home with Baraz and Meray.
