Disguised as a Team Galactic member, together with Team Rocket, he ambushed the grunts that were guarding the entrance to Spear Pillar. After assuming their places, he managed to establish a contact with champion Cynthia
and let her know of Team Galactic's actions. While waiting for her, he was able to discover who was the evil team's boss when Cyrus
arrived at the site along with the commanders. However, they immediately saw through their disguises and consequently, he and Team Rocket were taken prisoners. He was later rescued by Cynthia
, and was left keeping watch over Jupiter
and some of Team Galactic's members that were kept captive, while she, along with Ash Ketchum
and his friends, followed Cyrus
and the commanders to Spear Pillar.
After the evil team's plan had been thwarted, it was shown that he wondered where Team Rocket left off to, as they had mysteriously disappeared.

The first Plasma Gang assignment that Ash Ketchum
with the assistance of Looker
managed to intervene in was at the Sangi Town observatory. Colress
had setup a laboratory there and had been working on collecting Pokémon to use as an organic base. Aldith
excited to see the results of his work and just how much electric energy could be amplified so they could control Pokémon. Colress
hoped that if the system operated successfully, the Isshu region would belong to the Plasma Gang. Through the use of special radio waves, the Pokémon's mind would be overloaded, preparing it for battle and raising its combat power to the limit.
along with Team Plasma Grunts
under her control, managed to hold off Looker
and Ash Ketchum
long enough for Colress
to collect the necessary data for his experiment before he self destructed the observatory lab. Looker
was unable to collect any information from the destroyed observatory. Looker
and his colleagues would investigate Plasma Gang further but he noted that he would count on Ash Ketchum
's assistance when the time came.
