Anabel's Raikou intimidated Team Aqua and Magma admins; they wanted to know where Zinnia was, but the admins replied she didn't say where she went to.
Due to the meteorite threat, the Frontier Brains, including Anabel and her Raikou, joined the other Gym Leaders and the Elite Four to stop the collision. Anabel's Raikou was used to launch an attack against the meteorite.
