Black 2 & White 2 arc

After N left Team Plasma, Colress was appointed as the new leader. Colress also started to invent the Colress machine to take control of the Pokémon and bringing out their power to their fullest potential. A part of Team Plasma forces were against the idea and sided with N to stop the machine.[1]

Colress revealed himself to Blake and Looker, stating he was amused how Blake found out Genesect couldn't attack, for it was out of range of commands. Looker explained Colress was one of the people that participated in the Unova League two years ago. Colress had Genesect fire another Techno Blast, which chased Looker, Blake and their Pokémon away. Blake realized Colress was just controlling Genesect and decided to catch it.[2]

Colress continued having his machine control Genesect. He looked at one of the balls Blake threw and noted it was a Luxury Ball that lets the Pokémon be befriended. He thought Blake wanted to take control of Genesect and thought Blake was thinking in a similar matter. Colress was touched to find an equal, even if Blake was his enemy he had to destroy. Blake simply claimed his machine was trash, which upset Colress, who had Genesect continue attacking. Blake knew Genesect had a modified cannon, so Colress wanted to "enlighten" him by replacing the drive on Genesect's cannon to launch electric-type Techno Blast. While Blake managed to distract Genesect and catch it, Looker placed his mask and reminded Colress he also participated in the Unova League two years ago. Furthermore, he reminded Colress he did not use machinery to control Pokémon, but relied on his own wits, which Colress couldn't rely on. Looker tried to capture Colress with his handcuffs, but Colress flew off. He praised Blake on catching Genesect, but made it clear he wouldn't forgive him for insulting his machine. Colress learned Blake was a member of the Interpol and knew Looker was after the Seven Sages of Team Plasma, for through Scolipede Colress controlled earlier he managed to hear more. He told Ghetsis wanted Looker eliminated. He also made it clear he was a temporary leader of Team Plasma, but exclaimed Ghetsis would soon arrive. Colress flew off, which made Looker surprised he left Genesect like that, but Blake replied Colress was more interested in his own machine.[3]

Brycen spoke to Cheren and reminded him how he needed to obtain eight badges to participate in the Unova League, just like many challengers had to, including Colress.[4]

Eventually, Colress modified Team Plasma grunts' uniforms. He was fond of his work, since they still bore the ideals of Team Plasma, yet let the grunts move with greater mobility. Colress was also pleased his machine worked, even if he thought he shouldn't have revealed too much information to Blake and Looker. Regardless, he was also happy the frigate has been completed and decided to go with "his old friend" (Ghetsis) to declare a war on Unova, after calling Zinzolin first.[5]

Blake remembered Colress, whom Giallo started cursing, since Colress got Giallo in trouble for catching Tornadus.[6]

Zinzolin was discovered by Colress in the Cold Storage. Colress wondered why Zinzolin has not answered to his calls, thinking he was scared and ran away. Zinzolin recalled Colress as the Hood Man. Regardless, Colress had Beheeyem lift Zinzolin up with Wonder Room and recalled Zinzolin had his own desires and goals five years ago. Colress asked about his progress on finding more about Kyurem.[7] Colress knew Zinzolin had investigated more about Kyurem, since he disobeyed Ghetsis' orders and even enlisted for the Pokémon League, then his traces disappeared for two years. Zinzolin claimed Colress was half-right, since Zinzolin discovered there was a third dragon of Unova. Zinzolin was just bluffing; Zinzolin told he joined Team Plasma because nobody appreciated his plans. He explained Kyurem was but a shell of original dragon that split into Reshiram and Zekrom, too. He also exclaimed Kyurem could complete the two dragons. Colress kicked him in the face, knowing Zinzolin went to the Giant Chasm. Zinzolin confirmed this and showed that he obtained Kyurem, who was in the Cold Storage all this time. Colress was amazed and demanded Kyurem to be handed over. Zinzolin was outraged and swore to pay back at Colress for the insults. Colress simply laughed and dared Zinzolin to do it, "if he could".[8]

Zinzolin was insulted and had Kyurem attack Colress, whose Klinklang used Autotomize. Despite Klinklang getting hurt by Kyurem's Glaciate, Colress continued to mock Zinzolin. Colress attempted to take control of Kyurem, but was held by Cryogonal. As Cryogonal went to give the device to Zinzolin, the device was taken by Colress' Beheeyem. Colress also realized that Zinzolin wanted to capture Kyurem and fuse it with Reshiram and Zekrom, to fill in Kyurem's emptiness. Zinzolin remained silent, while Colress had something ambush Zinzolin. Later on, Colress spoke through the Reveal Glass to Blake, as Colress had the glass transform Thundurus and Landorus into their Therian Formes.[1] Colress faced Blake, seeing he defeated Ryoku and Bronius. Colress had Thundurus and Landorus attack Blake, seeing the sages were not quite powerful enough. Blake had his Liomaru and Kabutomaru battle them, as he went to capture Zinzolin. Colress' Beheeyem lifted Zinzolin in air, as Colress, who was not amused by the "sages" power, claimed Zinzolin still had valuable knowledge. Colress sent his Tornadus, who fired Air Slash, which Blake dodged. Dewott faced Tornadus, while Blake continued onto Colress, who had another trick up his sleeve: Kyurem emerged from the ground. Colress claimed his Kyurem would entertain Blake, but was stopped by a voice, as Ghetsis arrived. Colress heeded Ghetsis' command to place Kyurem into the ship, while Ghetsis sent the Shadow Triad to deal with Blake. With Kyurem boarded on, Colress and Ghetsis ordered the staff of the Plasma Frigate to lift the ship into the air and take off.[9]

Colress was contacted by the Shadow Triad, who reported Blake went missing. Colress suspected the superintendent came onto their ship, and decided to pretend that they don't know about his whereabouts. With Kyurem powering up his machine, Colress fired a beam, which froze the entire Castelia City. Colress was excited and glad the machine had such power. As he wanted to freeze more cities, Ghetsis contacted him about Rood, who betrayed them and arrived to Castelia City. Colress went to freeze him, but Ghetsis ordered Rood to be captured instead, to know why he came there. Colress had a Mandibuzz capture Rood, but Whitley pushed Rood out of the way and was captured instead. Colress was frustrated Rood eluded capture, but didn't care much about that. Instead, he ordered the grunts to lock up the girl in an empty cabin.[10]

As Blake and Whitley advanced to the pod, where Kyurem was hold, Blake had Keldemaru attack the pod. However, Kyurem was not inside it; instead, Kyurem attacked them, but Keldemaru took the hit and became frozen. Colress appeared, letting them know they had extracted enough of Kyurem's power to freeze Unova entirely, just like they did to Castelia City. Blake went to send Genesect, but Colress assured him Genesect could be destroyed, since it used its Techno Blast move and its cannon started to smoke. Whitley prevented Blake from sending Genesect, while Colress didn't care much about it, asking of them not to disturb him. In addition, Colress had Kyurem freeze them and had the guards toss their frozen bodies into the ocean. Just as he went to freeze more cities, Zinzolin woke up and questioned Colress why would he start freezing cities. Colress, however, wondered why did Kyurem approach Zinzolin, and suspected it was attracted to the energy Zekrom emitted two years ago. He also knew Zekrom and Reshiram would soon meet each other, if they haven't done that already.[11]

Colress noticed N and Zekrom approaching the Plasma Frigate. He was pleased, since he sensed that Kyurem was calling out to Zekrom to fuse with it. He went to confront them, but Ghetsis stopped him, since he wished to confront his "former" son. Colress gave him the remote, and reminded it was not wise to ease up, due to parental love, despite Ghetsis claiming he never shared this feeling with N.[12]
