Yo, Reborn City, what's good! DJ Arclight, coming to you live!
Arclight seems to be a cool and laid-back individual. He's passionate about music and running his nightclub, which he encourages the player to become a member there soon. Arclight can be quite brash sometimes, especially when someone is in danger.
In the game
DJ Arclight can be first be heard when the player watches Reborn's profile channel, which are about Reborn's Gym leaders. He usually gives their backstories, battle strategies, and teams to his audience.
Arclight can be first encountered outside of the Nightclub in the North Obsidia Ward, where he introduces himself to the player and invites them to try meeting him in the Nightclub someday. However, he also warns them that this will be very difficult, as only Ace Trainers are allowed inside - and in Reborn, the best way to become an Ace Trainer is to defeat the Elite Four and the Reborn League, a daunting task.
Later, Arclight can be encountered in the 7th Street, where he asks the player to buy several Pokémon kidnapped by Team Meteor from a vendor there, since the dealer will not sell them to him because Arclight "raised hell here in the past". If you buy all the Pokemon from the dealer, Arclight will thank the player saying that at least this way he will know they are in good hands, and he gives them the Lucky Egg before he "deals with" the seller, who is later found having changed jobs to become a Move Tutor.

After the player activates TMX Fly, Adrienn succeeded in restoring Reborn City. Ame later sends the player to get Arclight, Adrienn, and Victoria to help her with a mission. After getting everyone, Ame reveals that there is a Team Meteor base in Reborn City itself, and ask everyone to raid it. Adrienn goes with Ame in the store front, while Arclight, Victoria and the player goes underground. Adrienn and Ame were supposedly captured, and later the player blacks out after reaching the top.
The five are captured and imprisoned, then forced to fight each other one on one (except for Ame, who battles and loses to Lin). Adrienn went up against Arclight, but refused to fight him. This results in xe having the floored seared underneath xem, with Arclight leaving without a penalty, making him feel incredibly guilty. The player later encounters Arclight who forces them to fight him, due to not wanting to take the burden. After the player defeats Arclight, the floor underneath him drops him to the floor underneath.
After the player defeats ZEL, the player switches on the monitor. Arclight, Victoria, and Adrienn are then released from the doors. Adrienn appears fine due to xyr pokemon helping xem, but Victoria looks tired from her electrocution and Arclight is faced down on the floor. Adrienn tries to wake Arclight up but then finds out his eye was pulled off. Victoria becomes angry with herself for not being strong enough and Adrienn tries to help her calm down.
After a heart to heart talk, Adrienn carries Arclight out of the building, only to be outside in North Obsidia Ward. It turns out the group were transferred to another building when they were knocked out. Victoria then goes to Grand Hall to search for the records of this building, while Adrienn goes to find medical care for Arclight. Xe then asks the player to come to xyr gym later.
After getting the Amaranth Badge, Arclight still continues to do profiles for gym leaders, but tells the audience he is wearing an eyepatch due to a little accident, but mostly for style. After getting the Alloy Badge, the player can meet Arclight in the Grand Hall for a side quest. Arclight found some of the owners of the Pokemon sold in 7th Street and asks the player to return them. After returning the Pokemon back to their owners, Arclight gives them the Mega-Z Ring and hopes to see them again in his Nightclub.

- "Hah. All right. Sorry, Adrienn. Looks like it's my turn now." -After defeat in Devon Corp.
