Giant Rock

The Giant Rock first appeared in ''[[SS031|Mega Evolution Special II]]''. Lysandre had his scientists research it, but {{me|Rayquaza}} tried to attack them. Alain and Steven attempted to fend off the {{pkmn|category|Sky High Pokémon}}, but the Giant Rock disappeared. During the events of ''[[SS032|Mega Evolution Special III]]'', the [[Weather trio|super-ancient Pokémon]] battled over the Giant Rock, due to being attracted to its massive amount of [[Primal Reversion|Primal]] energy. While Alain and Steven fought off {{p|Groudon}} and {{p|Kyogre}}, Lysandre managed to secure the giant stone. During the events of ''[[SS035|Mega Evolution Special IV]]'', Chespie got hurt saving Squishy from [[Team Flare]], causing it to radiate energy and enter a comatose state.
After this, the Giant Rock made a brief appearance in ''[[XY111|Unlocking Some Respect!]]'', where it was seen in [[Xerosic]]'s lab. It did not have a major role until the events of ''[[XY135|Rocking Kalos Defenses!]]'', where it was revealed that, in the case Team Flare lost control of the two Zygarde, Lysandre had planned for it to absorb Chespie and transform into a copy of Zygarde, which would collide with the [[Anistar City]] Sundial and release enough energy to wipe out all life on the {{pkmn|world|planet}}. It was created when Serena, Mairin, Professor Sycamore and {{TRT}} invaded [[Lysandre Labs]], destroying the laboratory during its conception and forcing all Team Flare agents present to flee. It could not be stopped by Ash, Alain, Steven, Serena and their strongest Pokémon, although Ash-Greninja was able to sense Chespie's presence in the giant creature and marked its location with a {{m|Water Shuriken}}.
During ''[[XY136|Forming a More Perfect Union!]]'', {{ashfr|the group}} was helped by Kalos Gym Leaders, Diantha, and Malva. Together, they all helped clear or destroy some of the Giant Rock's roots in order to pave the way for Ash, Alain and their Pokémon to enter the Giant Rock's inner core and rescue Chespie, which deprived the Giant Rock of its power source, thus rendering it inert. Lysandre ultimately had to personally power it back up using his control device, but in response Squishy and Z2 transformed into Zygarde Complete Forme, which was able to match Giant Rock in combat. Although Lysandre attempted to fight back, he was defeated when Ash's Greninja, Pikachu and Alain's Charizard destroyed his control device, allowing Zygarde to attack the Giant Rock with {{m|Extreme Speed}}, which made a massive hole in it. It was then destroyed with Squishy's and Z2's {{m|Core Enforcer}}, an act that seemingly killed Lysandre, although his ultimate fate was left unclear.
