Forming a More Perfect Union! (反撃のジガルデ！カロス最終決戦！！ Zygarde Fights Back! The Final Battle for Kalos!!) is the 43rd episode of Pokémon the Series: XYZ.
As the megalith continues moving, the group is running towards it; Diantha orders everyone to aim at the Water Shuriken Ash's Greninja fired at the megalith, for they need to rescue Chespie, who is behind it. The megalith sprouts vines, so Pikachu's Iron Tail and Alain's Mega Charizard's Flamethrower destroy them. Ash and Alain, as well as their Pokémon, march towards the megalith, which sprouts more plants. With Mega Blaziken, Mega Charizard and Mega Houndoom firing Flamethrower, the plants burn away. Olympia has her Meowstic use Future Sight while Valerie has Spritzee fire Moonblast to destroy the plants, but Valerie gets held by the plant. Ash stops to rescue Valerie, but she and Olympia state they can handle this problem. From afar, Serena, her Pokémon, Mairin, Bonnie and Squishy and its friend watch the battle.
Pikachu uses Iron Tail, Mega Charizard Flamethrower and Ash-Greninja Cut to destroy the plants. Since they have trouble, Korrina has Mega Lucario block the plant with Bone Rush, stating they have to continue on. Ash and Alain go, but the former is shocked when Mega Lucario is blown away onto Korrina, who falls down. Korrina simply orders them to move, since they must not waste time. Ramos tries to stop the plants by having Gogoat use Grass Knot to bind the roots. However, he becomes taken away by the vines, warning Ash there is nobody else to stop the megalith. Just as Ash and Alain jump, they become grappled by the roots, but are saved by Viola's Vivillon's Solarbeam. More plants try to attack, so Grant has Tyrunt use Rock Tomb to stop them. Viola urges Ash and Alain to move on, but she gets hit by the plant, but is saved by Grant. However, they both get held by the vines; Grant orders them to climb "that wall", while Viola comments Ash and Alain they have a clear shot and must not miss. Ash and Alain climb the roots, while Wulfric's Mega Abomasnow freezes the plants. Just as Wulfric wants them to continue, he and Mega Abomasnow get hit by the vine.
Reaching the top, Ash and Alain see the megalith. Malva, Diantha, Sycamore, Clemont, Steven and the Blaziken Mask promise to carve out a path for Ash and Alain to go through and save Chespie. Mega Houndoom fires Dark Pulse to destroy the plants, along with Mega Garchomp's Dragon Rage. After Mega Charizard fires Flamethrower, some of the roots are burned away, though Malva and Sycamore are taken away. Ash states the others' effort must not go to waste. Mairin, who watches this, wants Chespie to feel everyone is doing their best to save it. Chespin fires Pin Missile, Luxray Swift and Bunnelby Mud Shot on the roots. Ash thanks Clemont for helping them and continues with Alain. Just as a root goes to attack them, Gourgeist and Inkay fire Seed Bomb and Psybeam to stop it; Team Rocket states the twerp must save Chespie. A plant attacks the helicopter, which explodes. Team Rocket falls down, but are saved by Diantha's Mega Gardevoir's Psychic. Meowth is glad they survived, as he documents through his camera, which is seen by the people, including Tierno, Shauna, Trevor and Sawyer.
Steven and Diantha help Ash and Alain continue, as they entrust their future to them. Using Psychic, Mega Metagross and Mega Gardevoir form a path out of the vines for Ash and Alain to continue, while Diantha and Steven continue fighting. The Blaziken Mask is overwhelmed, while Mega Blaziken fires Flamethrower. Squishy's friend, Z-2, is surprised at how much humans are working to save the planet. Squishy points out this is how humans and Pokémon are. Ash and Alain reach the end, where they have Pikachu use Electro Ball, Ash-Greninja Water Shuriken and Mega Charizard to use Flamethrower at the spot where Chespie is. However, the plants sprout out to defend the megalith. With everyone's feelings put through, the Pokémon launch their attacks, destroying the plants and a part of the megalith. Ash and Alain jump across and arrive to the spot, where Chespie is. Alain tries to reach Chespie, but the crystals inside the megalith sprout to attack him. Alain goes to reach Chespie, so Ash-Greninja uses Cut and Pikachu Electro Ball to destroy the incoming crystal.
The megalith has nearly came to Mairin and Serena, as the latter has her Pokémon attack to destroy the plants. Alain continues and as Mega Charizard, Pikachu and Ash-Greninja attack to destroy the crystals. Alain jumps, wanting Chespie to know he came to save it. As the plant goes to attack Mairin and Serena, it comes to a stop. From the megalith, which stopped moving, Alain and Ash come out, having Chespie in their possession. Everyone cheers for the victory, pleased with the outcome. Mairin is ecstatic with Chespie's return and thanks Alain. Everyone turns on the megalith and have their Pokémon launch attacks on it, causing it to fall down. Surprisingly, it stands up and becomes activated once more. Ash, Alain and Malva are shocked, as Lysandre comes on top of the megalith. He comments time is up and states he could even give up his life to destroy the world, which they cannot stop.
The megalith launches an attack, so Valerie's Spritzee uses Light Screen to protect everyone. As everyone stands back up from the attack, the Blaziken Mask's mask falls off. Bonnie and Clemont are shocked to see their father was Blaziken Mask all this time. Meyer claims he is not hurt and asks his children if they are okay, which they confirm. Lysandre has the megalith continue marching. Clemont states the device on Lysandre's right arm powers up the megalith and need to destroy it. Diantha states they need to use the last power they have to stop the megalith for sure. Squishy's friend is annoyed they still continue fighting, but Squishy points out that's how humans and Pokémon are. Squishy's friend claims they are powerless, but Squishy states even if it is true, humans don't know that, but their strength comes from their dreams, supporting and trusting each other. Squishy states that power gives them strength to create something new. The megalith fires another attack, which blows everyone away and hurts them.
Squishy's friend thinks for a bit and trusts Squishy by believing in these people. They both hop away, stating they are Zygarde, protectors of order. Both of them glow with a green light, swearing they will not let the world's destruction. The Zygarde cells are absorbed into the two, forming a giant. Olympia realizes this is the form when everything comes together. Lysandre states it is a surprise Zygarde has hidden the final form. He comments it must've seen the world, which has been disturbed by humans and their greed. Lysandre wonders what will it do about it, yelling it has "no right". Zygarde states that these people do have a right, as Bonnie and her friends have been protecting both of them all this time, promising they wouldn't let them go. Thus, Zygarde prepares to make its move. The megalith fires a beam, which Zygarde stops with Dragon Pulse. Zygarde flies away from the plants and strikes the megalith, pushing it away. Lysandre is furious and goes to launch another attack. Pikachu uses Thunderbolt, Ash-Greninja Water Shuriken and Mega Charizard Flamethrower at Lysandre's device, which becomes disabled.
Lysandre is in shock, since that was his perfect plan. Zygarde crashes through the megalith, nearly throwing Lysandre off balance. Bonnie cheers for Zygarde, as it launches a "Z" attack and destroys the megalith. Lysandre yells "it is not over yet", as he and chunks of megalith are absorbed into a green portal. Everyone watches what happened, as Team Rocket announces that the threat is over, making everyone pleased at the Pokémon Center. Olympia looks at the crystal sundial, seeing they managed to protect it, while Diantha comments they couldn't make it without Olympia's help. Steven wonders about Lysandre; Malva claims it is not known about him yet, but she would hunt the rest of Team Flare down and turn herself in to Officer Jenny. Suddenly, Chespie wakes up and makes Mairin nearly cry out of happiness. Alain strokes Chespie and apologizes to Mairin for what happened. Mairin replies everything is okay, as long as Alain is fine.
Zygarde descends down and Bonnie thanks it. Squishy states they were protecting them, just as Bonnie did to them. Zygarde is grateful for that and uses its power to dispel away the roots at Lumiose City. After reverting to its original form, Squishy is also grateful for Chespie for the events in Lysandre Labs. Squishy announces it is grateful to Bonnie for looking over it, having learned a lot by traveling together. However, it states it is tired and needs a lot of sunbath. Squishy states it is thankful for meeting Bonnie, who expresses the same feelings. Bonnie bids it farewell, as Squishy and its friend disappear. Soon after, the sun rises.
In the city, Mairin and Chespie walk. Seeing a banana peel, Chespie warns Mairin, who claims she can handle that problem. However, she trips over a dent in the floor, but is saved by Chespie, who sighs.
