Ridley is a recurring character who only appeared in Meloetta and the Undersea Temple and Unova's Survival Crisis!.
Ridley is a descendant of an ancient civilization, which lived on the Abyssal Ruins. This civilization fled the ruins however, due to a conflict, with the Meloetta, who lived with the people of the ruins, sealing the ruins for a very long time. This Meloetta continued living with the civilization in their new home for ages peacefully, until Team Rocket came to hunt it down. This was in the time Ridley lived in, who decided to find Meloetta and save it from Team Rocket. This all happened before An Epic Defense Force!.
Much later, he appeared flying on his Golurk and rushed down to Cynthia's villa after hearing Meloetta's song. Mistaking Ash and his friends as people who wanted to hurt Meloetta, he told his Golurk to use Flash Cannon on them, but Meloetta was able to defend them before Golurk launched its attack. After clearing up the misunderstanding, Ridley explained to Ash and his friends that Meloetta was kidnapped by Team Rocket. After that, they quickly discovered that Team Rocket had been spying on them. Just when they were leaving Cynthia's villa, they were surrounded with a smokescreen and attacked by two Team Rocket Grunts. Ridley decided to hold them off to let Meloetta escape with Ash and his friends. He appeared again later with injuries from his meeting with Team Rocket. Meloetta and Ash had been captured by Team Rocket and brought to the site of the Abyssal Ruins, however.
With Meloetta's power, Team Rocket restored the Abyssal Ruins and summoned Tornadus, Thundurus and Landorus in their Therian Formes. He got to the ruins together with Iris, Cilan, Cynthia and Jervis to help rescue Meloetta, Ash, and Pikachu and use his Golurk to help fight the Forces of Nature. When the legendary trio proved to be too strong, he showed himself in front of the Reveal Glass and spoke the words of his ancestors, which gave Meloetta the power to return the Forces of Nature in their original state.
When peace was restored, he returned to the mainland with the others and said farewell. He then left with Meloetta on his Golurk, back to the home of the mysterious civilization he is part of.
