Dawn comes to talk to Professor Bellis about a rift that recently appeared in the sky. Lucas is already talking to the professor, and he says that Dialga has been acting weird since the phenomenon was first reported. This reminds Dawn that she heard about some people in town making a fuss about Dialga and Palkia, so she and Lucas decide to go investigate.
In the town, two unidentified individuals are arguing in front of a crowd. One of them insists that they've come to future, so this is a trial from mighty Dialga; the other insists that they've come to a faraway country, so it's a trial from mighty Palkia. When Lucas and Dawn arrive, the people arguing notice them and run over to them. Believing the two are Rei and Akari, they express their relief at seeing familiar faces and wonder why they changed their clothes. When Dawn and Lucas still don't recognize them, they realize that Dawn and Lucas are not Rei and Akari, so they introduce themselves as Irida and Adaman from Hisui. Lucas recognizes the name from books in the Canalave Library and Professor Rowan's research materials, so he realizes that these two have come from ancient Sinnoh. When he shares this realization with them, Adaman smugly says that he was right about them being in the future and that it's a trial from Dialga. Dawn and Lucas ask him what he means by that, and Adaman explains that the Diamond Clan worships Dialga, controller of time. Irida chimes in that the Pearl Clan worships Palkia, controller of space. Lucas asks if they met up with Dialga before coming here, but they admit that they can't remember. Adaman and Irida then muse that they never thought they'd be the ones traveling to an unknown world in a distant time, and they explain how that happened to people back in Hisui. Adaman realizes that they came here the same way, through a rift, and Lucas and Dawn realize that it's the same rift that Professor Bellis had mentioned.
Lucas, Dawn, Adaman, and Irida head to the forest to investigate the rift. Professor Bellis shows up, and after catching her up, she informs them that strange phenomena have been occuring across Pasio that cause lots of wild Pokémon to appear. Adaman and Irida realize that they're space-time distortions, and they explain what space-time distortions are. Professor Bellis says that the distortions on Pasio aren't showing signs of dissipating, which Adaman says is dangerous. Lucas and Dawn don't see why it'd be dangerous, so Adaman and Irida explain why Pokémon were feared back in Hisui. Professor Bellis then gets a phone call informing her that someone was attacked by wild Pokémon in a distortion, making the whole group realize the gravity of the situation. Adaman and Irida recall that Dialga and Palkia were a major cause of the rift in Hisui, so Irida hypothesizes that the disturbances on Pasio are connected to the two Legendary Pokémon. Lucas says that they can get Dialga to help them; he sends out his Dialga, shocking Adaman and Irida. Irida then asks if they can ask Palkia for help, too. Lucas and Dawn are reluctant to, but eventually realize it's worth a try, so they decide to go find Cyrus of Team Galactic.
As the group approaches Team Galactic's hideout, Adaman and Irida are confident that the group will help them, assuming they're the Galaxy Team. So when a pair of Team Galactic grunts appear, Adaman and Irida are shocked by their bizarre outfits. Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter then appear, and Dawn and Lucas explain why they've come. The Team Galactic commanders agree to let the group talk to Cyrus, since they've been inconvenienced by the space-time distortions, too. Upon arriving in Cyrus's room, he immediately says that he won't help them, confusing Adaman and Irida. When Cyrus says Team Galactic's goal is to create a perfect world, they finally realize that Team Galactic is different than the Galaxy Team. Lucas's Dialga suddenly lets itself out of its Poké Ball, and Dialga and Palkia begin talking to Adaman and Irida telepathically. Dialga and Palkia say that they have to work together using the power of time and space to stop the space-time distortion from spreading. Cyrus comments that this coincides with some of Team Galactic's research, and he finally agrees to assist them in order to support his hypothesis about why the distortions are happening.
They split up into two groups: Cyrus, Dawn, Irida, and the Team Galactic commanders are on one side of the distortion, where Palkia is applying force to it; and Lucas and Adaman are on the opposite side of the distortion, where Dialga is applying force to it. However, their efforts don't seem to be working. Suddenly, they realize the distortion has stopped growing and is showing signs of dissipating. Irida gives Palkia all the credit, but Cyrus realizes that there was a third power that helped them stop the distortion. In the ruins with Giratina, Barry celebrates their success, while Cynthia says that she has lots of questions for Adaman and Irida. The distortion finally dissipates completely, and Lucas thanks Dialga for its help. Adaman notes that people and Pokémon have once again joined together and saved the world. Later, Professor Bellis informs everyone that the rift is still open and space-time distortions are still forming, but they're not as dangerous as the previous one. Adaman and Irida promise to help if anything bad happens again, which surprises Lucas and Dawn, who thought they wanted to get back home as soon as possible. Adaman and Irida don't know how, so they've decided to stay on Pasio to take care of other people and Pokémon from Hisui that come to the island. They've even put Leafeon and Glaceon in Poké Balls so they can form sync pairs and show other Hisuians how people and Pokémon can live together in harmony. With their decision made, Adaman declares that they can all help each other out from now on.

- Pokémon Center
|Adaman||Sync pairs, huh...|
|Irida||Everything we see and hear is new and surprising.|
|Adaman||Yep! I guess I'll have to learn how people and Pokémon on Pasio get along!|
- A Rift in the Sky
|Dawn||Professor Bellis! Something terrible is happening—|
When you say terrible, do you mean...?
|Professor Bellis||There was a report of a strange phenomenon in the sky last night, above the forest on Pasio's outskirts. Is that what you're referring to?|
From what I've heard, people are seeing what appears to be a rift in the sky.
|Dawn||Y-yes, that's it!|
|Lucas||Dialga's been acting weird since last night, when the phenomenon was first reported. I wonder what's going on...|
|Dawn||Oh! Speaking of Dialga!|
|Lucas||Huh?! What about Dialga?|
|Dawn||There was another commotion in town, too!|
I heard that some people were making a fuss about Dialga and Palkia.
- Two from Hisui
|???||You just don't get it.|
We've obviously come to the future!
This has to be a trial from mighty Dialga, who controls time!
|???||Hmph, doubtful. Do you have any proof we're in the future?|
This is clearly a faraway country across the sea! Which means it's a trial from mighty Palkia, who controls space!
|Lucas||Er... Are those the people you were talking about?|
|Dawn||Yeah, I think so.|
|???||What? Rei's here, too?!|
|???||I'm so glad you're here! I thought we were alone!|
|???||Why are you wearing different clothes? What happened to your Survey Corps uniform?|
|Dawn||U-um! Hold on a second!|
|Lucas||Er... Who are you two?|
|???||Hey, don't tell me you forgot this handsome face.|
Now's not the time for bad jokes.
These two really might be different.
|???||They look similar to Rei and Akari, but their mannerisms are completely different.|
|???||Now that you mention it, they kinda are, aren't they.|
|???||Um... What are your names?|
|Lucas||My name's Lucas. Nice to meet you.|
|???||So in short, these two aren't who we thought.|
Then I suppose introductions are in order.
|Irida||I'm Irida, leader of the Pearl Clan in Hisui.|
|Adaman||I'm Adaman, leader of the Diamond Clan. I'm also from Hisui.|
Sorry for getting ahead of myself earlier.
|Dawn||I-it's OK. Nice to meet you.|
But...Hisui? I haven't heard of that region before.
|Lucas||No way. It can't be.|
|Dawn||What's wrong, Lucas?|
|Lucas||Well... Y'see, Dawn, the Hisui region...|
is what the Sinnoh region used to be called a long time ago!
|Dawn||Lucas! Are you serious? Hisui is ancient Sinnoh?|
|Lucas||Yeah. It was in books in the Canalave Library and in Professor Rowan's research materials.|
A long time ago, Sinnoh used to be called Hisui.
Which means, if what these people say is true...
|Dawn||They've come from ancient Sinnoh?|
|Adaman||See? I told you we came to the future.|
|Adaman||This must be a trial from mighty Dialga!|
|Lucas||Um, what exactly do you mean by "trial"?|
|Adaman||The Diamond Clan I lead is a group that worships mighty Dialga, who controls time.|
We give our thanks for the time it's bestowed upon our world.
In other words, the fact that time sped up and led us here to the future...
means this is a trial mighty from Dialga!
|Irida||By the way...|
The Pearl Clan, which I lead, worships mighty Palkia, who controls space.
I was so sure it was mighty Palkia who led us to this distant, foreign land, by manipulating space!
|Lucas||So...before you got here, did the two of you meet up with Dialga?|
|Adaman||Now that you mention it, I don't remember.|
Actually, Irida and I are fuzzy on what happened just before and after we arrived here.
|Dawn||If that's the case, it'll be hard to tell if this was really Dialga's doing.|
|Irida||I agree. It's still too early to draw any conclusions.|
|Adaman||Traveling to an unknown world in a distant time...|
I never thought it would happen to us.
|Irida||Me neither. Not even an inkling.|
|Dawn||What do you mean?|
|Irida||Back in Hisui, where we were before...|
There were some people who went through what we are now.
|Adaman||Apparently, they suddenly fell from the sky one day. And if I remember correctly...|
That's it! It was from a rift!
There was a rift when we showed up here, too!
|Irida||Right! Why didn't I realize it sooner! I'm such a fool!|
|Lucas||Oh, so if you came from a rift, that must mean...|
|Adaman||See that over there? That's what we're talking about.|
|Dawn||That's the rift in the sky Professor Bellis was talking about!|
- Pokémon Are Dangerous?
|Adaman||Back in Hisui, there was a rift similar to the one here...|
|Professor Bellis||So the rest of you came, too!|
|Professor Bellis||Are those two the ones everyone's been talking about?|
|Dawn||Yes! Their names are Adaman and Irida!|
|Lucas||Professor, have you learned anything new?|
|Professor Bellis||Yes, but I have some bad news.|
Strange phenomena, including this rift, have been occurring across Pasio...
And it seems a lot of wild Pokémon are suddenly appearing where these phenomena are occurring.
|Adaman||Do you think this could be...|
|Irida||It's a space-time distortion.|
|Lucas||Oh, you know something about it?|
|Adaman||Yeah. It's a dangerous phenomenon that sometimes occurred back in Hisui.|
An unusual amount of wild Pokémon start to appear within the area it affects.
|Irida||We don't know when or where a distortion will appear, but the ones in Hisui would always naturally dissipate after a while.|
|Dawn||Does that mean the ones on Pasio will, too?|
|Professor Bellis||No, I'm afraid the ones on Pasio...|
aren't showing signs of disappearing. In fact, they're getting bigger.
|Lucas||Dangerous? I know there haven't been any wild Pokémon on Pasio before...|
|Dawn||But if it's just a lot of Pokémon showing up, that's not exactly scary, right?|
|Irida||... ... ...|
|Adaman||I see. So that's how you perceive it.|
|Irida||We don't keep our Pokémon in balls...|
Do you know why?
|Lucas||If I remember correctly...back in the time of Hisui, Poké Balls weren't very common, right?|
|Adaman||Correct. Only some folks use Poké Balls.|
|Irida||In the time we're from, aside from those raised among humans...|
Pokémon are considered dangerous, frightening creatures that shouldn't be underestimated.
|Professor Bellis||Hello? Bellis speaking.|
Thanks. We'll be careful.
|Lucas||What was that about?|
|Professor Bellis||Wild Pokémon attacked someone who entered a distortion's vicinity.|
|Professor Bellis||There are a lot of non-Trainer civilians on Pasio. That must be why...|
|Dawn||Come to think of it, before I became a Trainer, adults used to warn me...|
"Don't go into the tall grass."
|Adaman||Yeah. You shouldn't underestimate Pokémon's strength.|
|Dawn||We need to stop this at once, before this causes even more trouble!|
|Lucas||Yeah! We gotta hurry!|
|Adaman||If you plan on doing something about the distortion, we might be able to help.|
|Adaman||By the way, this rift in space-time we were talking about earlier...|
When it appeared in Hisui, mighty Dialga and Palkia were a major cause.
|Irida||The rift is also what started all the strange things back in Hisui, too, like the distortions.|
There's a chance the disturbances occurring on Pasio are connected to mighty Dialga and Palkia...
|Lucas||If so, we'll have Dialga help us!|
W-wow! I wasn't expecting to witness mighty Dialga!
|Adaman||But if mighty Dialga is already helping humans in this time, fixing this should go smoothly!|
|Irida||Hey, if Dialga is here, then what about mighty Palkia?|
|Lucas||There is a Trainer with a Palkia, but...|
|Irida||Really? Then let's go ask mighty Palkia for help as well!|
|Irida||Is there a reason why it'd be difficult?|
|Adaman||C'mon, we can't be indecisive! We don't have much time!|
|Irida||Stop rushing them, you fool!|
|Dawn||But... I guess she's right.|
|Lucas||Yeah. It might not work, but we should at least try!|
Let's go find Cyrus—of Team Galactic!
- Cyrus of Team Galactic
|Adaman||I don't know what you're worried about, but it'll be fine!|
|Irida||The Galaxy Team will surely lend us a hand!|
|Lucas||Um...I don't think we're talking about the same people...|
|Team Galactic Grunt||You! You're here to get in our way again, aren't you!|
|Adaman||Wh-what are those bizarre outfits?!|
|Irida||Y-you're the Galaxy Team, correct?|
|???||Why are you all here?|
|Adaman||Arezu! What are you doing in that outfit?!|
|Mars||Who are you talking about?!|
I'm Mars, one of the commanders of Team Galactic. Can you handle my beauty and strength?
|Saturn||How rude of you to mistake a Team Galactic commander for someone else!|
|Adaman||Oh...so this is just another case of people looking alike?|
|Dawn||Um, we're not here to stop your plans or anything!|
|Lucas||We just want to ask Cyrus and Palkia for their help in fixing the disturbances happening on Pasio!|
|Saturn||Hmph. Bold of you to ask, but I suppose we could entertain the idea.|
|Jupiter||Team Galactic has suffered damage due to the disturbances.|
|Mars||This could benefit Master Cyrus, so we'll hear you out. But don't you dare try anything funny!|
|Dawn||Um, so the reason why we're here is—|
|Cyrus||You don't need to explain.|
I already know why you're here.
However, I have no intention of cooperating with the likes of you.
|Adaman||Hey, hold on a second...|
The Galaxy Team's mission is for people and Pokémon to coexist for the peace and safety of the world, right?
|Cyrus||I don't know what organization you're mistaking us for, but Team Galactic has one mission—|
to create a perfect world.
|Irida||I guess Team Galactic is different from the Galaxy Team we know.|
|Cyrus||If you're hoping for goodwill, leave now. You won't find such ambiguous things here.|
|Irida||His blunt personality...|
|Adaman||Yeah, it reminds me of someone...|
|Cyrus||What is it, Palkia?|
|Dawn||Adaman! Irida! What's wrong?!|
|Adaman||My head... Mighty Dialga's talking...inside my head!|
It's telling me to use the power of time and space to ease the space-time distortion...
|Irida||Mighty Palkia is telling me that we can stop the space-time distortion from spreading by working together!|
|Lucas||Dialga and Palkia are speaking to you?|
However, it does coincide with some of Team Galactic's research.
|Cyrus||Time and space...|
If a large number of wild Pokémon are appearing in this phenomenon's vicinity...
I can hypothesize it's because various times and spaces are connected.
|Lucas||If we assume your hypothesis is correct...|
|Cyrus||There's a chance the disturbances are forming because the balance between time and space has been disrupted.|
|Dawn||If so, we might be able to use the power of time and space to restore balance and stop the distortions!|
|Adaman||Yeah, sounds great!|
|Irida||What do you think, as one who has a connection to mighty Palkia?|
|Cyrus||Fine. I'll cooperate.|
I'm curious whether this will prove my hypothesis correct—and what the results will show.
|Irida||Excellent! With mighty Palkia's cooperation, I'm much more confident this will go well!|
|Adaman||So, what's the plan?|
|Cyrus||Within the distortion, wild Pokémon will become an obstacle.|
It would be more effective, then, to apply force from outside the distortion, in a pincer movement.
|Irida||So we'll have mighty Palkia and Dialga working from opposite sides of the distortion.|
|Adaman||Sounds like a plan!|
|Lucas||Let's split up and get started!|
- People and Pokémon
|Adaman||OK! Time to call upon mighty Dialga to lend us its power!|
|Lucas||Dialga... Can you help us, please?|
|Dawn||Hey... The distortion seems to be getting bigger...|
|Irida||Why? How could this happen when mighty Palkia is trying to stop it?|
|Cyrus||Two powers were not enough...|
|Dawn||At this rate...|
|Jupiter||No, wait! The distortion stopped growing!|
|Saturn||And...it looks like it's coming to an end!|
|Irida||I knew you could do it, mighty Palkia! Your power worked!|
|Cyrus||(There was third power at work here, from the reverse side that doesn't follow the laws of physics...)|
Hmph. So she's here, too.
|Barry||We did it! It's getting smaller and smaller!|
|Cynthia||Let's finish this quickly!|
I have a lot of questions for those two Professor Bellis mentioned, who everyone's talking about!
|Lucas||W-we did it! The space-time distortion is gone!|
|Adaman||It's really over?|
You're a lifesaver, Dialga! It's all thanks to you lending us your power!
|Adaman||(Once again, people and Pokémon joined together...)|
(and saved the world from destruction.)
Looks like it's time for us to make a decision.
|Dawn||Huh? The rift is still open?|
|Lucas||And you're saying more space-time distortions have been forming, too?!|
|Professor Bellis||Occasionally, yes. But on a smaller scale.|
|Lucas||So we didn't fix the root of the problem...|
|Adaman||Don't worry. We were able to stop the worst of it, weren't we?|
|Irida||If anything happens again, I'm sure we can resolve it together.|
|Dawn||Huh? But I thought you two wanted to get back home as soon as possible.|
|Adaman||Well...we do, but we don't know how.|
|Irida||So for now, we've decided to stay here on Pasio until we figure it out!|
|Adaman||Other people and Pokémon from Hisui might come here, too...|
|Irida||So we'll be sure to take care of them if they do. Leave it to us!|
|Lucas||Are you sure?|
|Adaman||Yeah. Our minds are made up.|
|Adaman||As proof of how serious we are, we even have Leafeon and Glaceon in Poké Balls now.|
When someone from Hisui comes here, or when we eventually find our way back there...
We'll have to set the example and show them how people and Pokémon can live together in harmony.
|Irida||Sync pairs are the perfect example!|
So please, let us stay and learn from all of you!
|Lucas||Sure, of course!|
|Professor Bellis||*chuckle* I can tell it's going to get lively here.|
|Dawn||Let's give it our best, Adaman, Irida!|
|Adaman||You got it! Since we'll be here a while, let's help each other out!|
- This story event was the first to feature characters from Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
- Adaman and Irida mention or allude to several other characters from Hisui in this event:
- The plot point where Adaman and Irida mistake Team Galactic for the Galaxy Team makes more sense in the original Japanese, where both groups are called (ギンガ団 Ginga-dan).
