Absol first appeared in the film, sensing Jirachi's reawakening. While he sensed it, it headed off towards the fair.
While in a tent with the gang, Butler and Diane at the fair, Max heard a noise coming from a mirror, when suddenly, Absol smashed though mirror. It then started to run towards Max while Ash and May try to fend it off, but unfortunately May's Torchic wasn't strong enough to fend it off. Ash's Pikachu sent it flying off, it made angry for not getting towards Jirachi.
Then it changes target towards the gang. Suddenly, Butler opens a booby-trap, trapping Absol in a cage in which butler commands his Kirlia to use Hypnosis on Absol, making it fall asleep in the process.
