Alain was then invited to [[Lysandre Labs]], where Lysandre revealed his intention to harness the energy Pokémon produce when they Mega Evolve, for peaceful purposes. He also claimed that if Professor Sycamore were to publish the secrets of Mega Evolution, mankind would find a way to use those secrets to nefarious ends, and said that he would not allow the Professor's name to be tarnished. Asking if Alain would assist him, Lysandre revealed a metal attaché case with a [[Key Stone|Mega Ring]] and [[Charizardite X]]. Believing he could protect the Professor this way, Alain accepted Lysandre's proposal.
===In the ''Mega Evolution Specials''===
Some time prior to ''[[SS029|Mega Evolution Special I]]'', Charmeleon evolved into a {{p|Charizard}}. Alain was first seen in ''Mega Evolution Special I'' battling a Trainer named [[Astrid]], and defeated her Mega {{p|Absol}}. The battle was secretly watched by [[Mairin]], a beginning Trainer who was sent out on a journey by Professor Sycamore. Mairin was so impressed with his strength that she began following him. From Mairin, Alain learned of [[Ash Ketchum|a Trainer]] who [[XY002|lept off of Prism Tower to save a Pokémon]]. Next, Alain received a call on his [[Holo Caster]] from [[Lysandre|a mysterious person]], who directed him to a location with ruins to retrieve a Mega Stone. After getting the Mega Stone, Alain was confronted by a Trainer named [[Remo]] who was also looking for the Mega Stone. Remo challenged him with a Mega {{p|Garchomp}}, but Alain won the battle and kept the Mega Stone.

Alain reappeared inIn ''[[XY106|A Meeting of Two Journeys!]]'', where he waswhile passing by Ash's battle with [[Sawyer]]., HeAlain took notice of [[Ash's Greninja]]'s [[Bond Phenomenon|unique transformation]] and was intrigued by it. The next day, he saved [[Ash's Pikachu]] from {{TRT}} and introduced himself to Ash and his friends. He then requested to battle Ash's Greninja, to which Ash agreed. Alain held the upper hand against Ash and Greninja with his Charizard, which he eventually Mega Evolved as he wanted to draw out Greninja's full power. Once Greninja did transform, Alain was surprised to discover it wasn't a Mega Evolution, as his Mega Ring didn't respond. Ash-Greninja managed to battle Charizard on more even grounds, but was still defeated. Afterwards, Alain and Ash introduced themselves, just before he thanked Ash for the battle and left.
In ''[[XY107|An Explosive Operation!]]'', he was sent by Lysandre to help [[Aliana]] and [[Mable]] in their mission to capture [[Z2]] when they were having a hard time. Alain and Charizard were an even match for the Zygarde and distracted it long enough for [[Team Flare]] to use their specialized weapons. After they captured Z2, Aliana and Mable recognized him as working for Lysandre.
