Only three of you entered? We expected more. Three are easy to deal with.

ZEL is one of the admins of Team Meteor. An amalgamation of three different personalities, namely Zero, Eve and Lumi, ZEL develops PULSE Machines for Team Meteor.

Zero is the most aggressive personality, acting harsh to others and even their other personalities. Eve is the smartest personality, developing PULSE machines entirely on their own, and possessing a great understanding of Pokémon's abilities. Lumi is the kindest of the three, cheering on the Tangrowth in the PULSE Machine despite all the damage it causes, encouraging Eve, and attempting to be friendly and polite to the player. She also gets angry at Zero constantly for yelling at Eve about the PULSE machines.


In the games[edit | edit source]

ZEL first introduces themselves at Obsidia Park, in front of a mass of metal and flora that has ensnared Amaria and Florinia. ZEL at first appears to be arguing with an unseen accomplice, but as the conversation continues, it is made clear that ZEL has three distinct personalities: Zero (dialogue presented as Zel), Eve (dialogue presented as zEl), and Lumi (dialogue presented as zeL).

After the defeat/death of the PULSE Tangrowth, Zero and Eve argue with each other over Zero's error in using the PULSE Tangrowth for battle, while Lumi apologizes to it for not stopping them.

ZEL is encountered again in the Beryl Ward with Taka and a mysterious agent, irritated with the player's interference. After Heather's interruption, the agent commands them to team up with Taka against the player. After their defeat, Eve gives a frank analysis of the situation and determines there is no use in their staying, and Lumi's nervousness guides the trio to follow Taka.

ZEL later reappears in Blacksteam Factory, where they are monitoring the PULSE Muk along with Solaris. The PULSE Muk is responsible for poisoning Azurine Lake, and ZEL tries to stop the player from defeating it. After the battle, PULSE Muk disappears and Team Meteor makes a retreat due to the lake already being poisoned.

When the player raids the Tanzan Meteor Base, ZEL appears to have trouble stabilizing PULSE Abra. Lumi was hoping to ask Abra nicely to teleport them inside the gate underneath the Grand Stairway but Zero replies that its not listening. Abra's amplified teleportation powers is why Spinel Town is in disarray. The player and Saphira try to stop them but gets teleported instead to Tanzan Depths.

The player later comes back to the Tanzan Meteor Base only to find ZEL being teleported around by Abra. Due to Abra uncooperating with Team Meteor, Eve suggest to simply terminate the project, which Zero agrees. Lumi however is against it, but Eve says Lin is coming soon and this would be unacceptable to present, and would stop anymore teleportation accidents from happening further. ZEL then decide to battle the player to terminate Abra. After Abra is terminated, the player is let go by Sirius in the hopes that they never meet again.

Spoiler warning!
This article contains plot details about events that occur later in the game.

A diary discovered in Ametrine City reveals the history behind this odd character- ZEL truly is three people in one body, fused together as the result of a PULSE Machine attached to a Magneton that evolved into a Magnezone while it was still hooked up. Evelyn Seijaya, the original identity of Eve, had developed the machine in an attempt to heal her sister, Luminia Seijaya, the original identity of Lumi, hoping to keep her from dying. Zero, a member of Team Meteor, somehow learned of Evelyn's project, and attempted to force her into giving the power behind it to the organization. Luminia, sickly and frightened, simply feared death and being alone. As the great accident occurred, all three of them got what they wanted, but in a terrible manner.

After the protagonist, Victoria, Arclight, Adrienn, and Ame are all captured by Team Meteor during the attempted raid on a Meteor facilty hidden in Devon Corp and transported to a hidden base elsewhere in the city, ZEL stayed behind after the base was evacuated, due to an unknown source inserting a corrupted program into the data of the PULSE that empowered the Magnezone responsible for turning them into ZEL. They are encountered a final time in the chamber containing said PULSE Magnezone, where, after questioning if the "heroes brigade" planned to destroy everything there, ZEL engages them in battle with their full team, including the PULSE Magnezone.

However, after Magnezone is defeated, Lumi and Eve are seemingly expelled from Zero's body, leaving him alone for the first time since the accident and horrified by the loss of his comrades, and leaves for Agate City afterwards.

Zero is later found with Bennett in the Glass Factory, controlling the PULSE-Hypno responsible for Agate City's sleepy veil. He talks to the player like if Eve and Lumi were still inside him, indicating he might suffer from schizophrenia. He reveals that PULSE-Hypno was mentally controlling Cain and Shelly, and command them to battle the player. After the latter wins, Bennett tells Zero to let Shelly go, only to take control of the player instead.

After the player escapes Gardevoir's black hole, Radomus explains what happened while the player was under the PULSE-Hypno's control. After Gardevoir used the black hole in order to protect Radomus, Zero and Bennett argued over what happened, and Bennett says Zero is a high-ranked Team Meteor member only thanks to Eve and Lumi, as he was a simple grunt before the Magneton/Magnezone event. Zero is told by Bennett to report the events of what happened to their superiors in Labradorra City, but Bennett immediately regrets this and asks Laura to catch Zero before it's too late.

Lumi and Eve later appear to be okay, since Magnezone's defeat made Lumi's and Eve's consciousness go back to their own body. Eve wanted to one day go back to their bodies but with Zero with them it was difficult. The two of them later goes to Calcenon City, with Lumi breathing in fresh air and Eve informing the player about the other PULSE Machines.

Obsidia Ward battle speech
Pre-battle speech

[???]: I TOLD you they would get here too soon! If you had made this machine go faster...

[???]: No! Tangrowth wouldn't be able to take anymore!

[???]: The speed has already been optimized. Be glad the Pokemon was able to capture those two girls.

[???[: You're really strong to be able to do everything so well, Tangrowth!

[???]: Hey! How much longer are we gonna ignore the other problem?

[???]: Oh, hello. Um, my name is Lumi--

[???]: Only three of you entered? We expected more.

[???]: Three are easy to deal with.

[???]: Um, it might be more polite if we introduce ourselves. I'm--

[???]: You've already introduced myself, Lumi. Needlessly, at that! I, however, am Zero.

[???]: I am Eve. Collectively we are referred to as ZEL.

[Zel]: And we're not gonna let you touch the PULSE!

[zeL]: But But that's probably what you came here for, right?

[zeL]: All of the growth here is a result of this machine.

[zeL]: And Eve built it all by herself!

[zEl]: Correct. The Link System is a simple hybridization-amplification mechanic.

[Zel]: So with that machine behind it, it can manipulate even the smallest root into a massive arbor wrecking ball!

[Zel]: Think you can stop it? Just try!

Post-battle speech

[zEl]: Zero, next time, rather than showing off the mission's keystone, let's fight with our own Pokemon.

[zeL]: I'm sorry, Tangrowth... I should have intervened.

[Zel]: Stop yelling at me! You said this machine was supposed to make it stronger!

[zEl]: Your misjudgement was the key factor. Refardless, with Tangrowth incapacitated, the malignant growth will now regress.

[zeL]: So it's all going to go back to normal?

[zEl]: Correct. So there's no longer any purpose to remaining here. Recover the model, and escape at once.

[Zel]: Hey, <player>, right?

[Zel]: Don't think this is over.

Beryl Ward battle speech
Pre-battle speech
[Zel]: You!

[Taka]: Oh, hey.

[???]: What is it now?

[Taka]: This is the trainer that defeated the PULSE in Jasper.

[Taka]: I invited <player> to come here so we could deal with this issue thoroughly. See?

[zEl]: <player> is also responsible for destroying the PULSE in Obsidia.

[???]: Ah. That was you.

[???]: An alley cat parading as a tiger.

[???]: Heroism is vainglory.

[???]: But you will learn. You've stepped out of your alley, and into the world.

[???]: I will introduce you to the cold pain of reality.

[???(2nd)]: Hold it right there!

{Heather enters area}

[Taka]: Hey, isn't that---

[zEl]: Heather, daughter to the Beryl Ward Gym Leader and--

[???]: I know all too well who she is. But why is she here?

[Heather]: What kind of question is that?!

[Heather]: I'm stopping you evil people, duh!

[???]: How reckless. Weren't you raised to be more responsible?

[Heather]: Who cares?!

[Heather]: People try to stop me from doing things all the time but their true rules are totally stupid anyway!

[???]: Just because you do not understand something does not make it 'stupid'.

[???]: You will learn, someday.

[Heather]: Would you just shut up!?

[Heather]: I'm here to beat you up, not get lectured, so shut up!

[???]: Taka, ZEL. Deal with <player> and protect the PULSE.

[???]: Leave the girl to me.

[Taka]: Sure thing.

[zeL]: Um, I guess I have to... Sorry, <player>, but...

[Zel]: But it's payback time!

Post-battle speech
[Taka]: Well, that's not good.

[zEl]: The PULSE has been deactivated. There is no longer any purpose in defending this location.

[Taka]: In that case, I'm just gonna make myself scare. You coming?

[zeL]: Um... I... I guess so...

Blacksteam Factory battle speech
Pre-battle speech
[zeL]: Oh, it's you. Um, you... you probably shouldn't be here.

[???]: You're an annoyance.

[???]: You meddle in dangerous affairs, but I'll congratulate you for cutting through my subordinates.

[???]: Your reward: Come, observe.

[zEl]: They already know about the PULSE, sir. It was they who contributed to the destruction of the PULSE-Tangrowth project.

[???]: I'm aware. But, <player>, this is slightly different from the one you have seen already.

[???]: Look at this Muk. The machine to which it's attached drains its lifeforce and suffocates its spirit.

[???]: Even its body gives way as it collapses drool into a mere puddle of itself.

[???]: And now that your back is turned, Garchomp, Dragon Rush. Execute!

[???](2nd): Atlantica, quickly! Ice Beam!

{Kingdra enters area and Garchomp freezes}

[???]: Hmph. You're lucky. I could have had you out of the way once and for all.

[Amaria]: Not on my watch!

{Amaria enters area}

[???]: Garchomp, return.

[Amaria]: <player>, are you okay?

[Amaria]: Phew! That was close.

[Amaria]: But I don't get it. This PULSE Machine floods the lake with poison.

[Amaria]: Why would you want to do that? You're destroying a beautiful lake and making life hard for Reborn City!

[???]: That's exactly why.

[???]: They should leave. We'll do whatever it takes to evacuate the city.

[???]: If their homes are destroyed by raging plants, or they can't even drink water anymore...

[???]: Then they'll leave.

[???]: All of them will.

[???]: And since Grandview Station is destroyed, no more will arrive.

[???]: This will become a vacant, ruined city again.

[???]: As it should have stayed in the first place.!

[Amaria]: You're awful!

[???]: Do not judge that which you do not understand. We have our motives. If you do not share them, you are an enemy.

[Amaria]: I'll never allow you to get away with it!

[???]: Interesting.

[Amaria]: Wh-what? Why did your tone change so suddenly?

[???]: That Sapphire Bracelet...

[Amaria]: What, this? It was a gift, from Tania.

[Amaria]: You're not taking it, if that's what you think!

[Amaria]: Anything Tania gives me is precious. I'll defend it with my life!

[???]: Suit yourself. Both are forfeit.

[Amaria]: <player>, try to deactivate the PULSE while I keep him busy!

[Zel]: Like hell you will!

[zEl]: It would seem your presence here is unnecessary.

[Zel]: So get the hell out already!

Post-battle speech

[zeL]: Solaris, I- I'm sorry, we couldn't...

[Solaris]: Useless.

[Solaris]: Yes, you are as useless as your worthless actions.

[Solaris]: So you stopped the PULSE? Too late. The lake is already too-far gone.

[Solaris]: Speaking of gone, there's no point to us staying here. First, a parting gift.

[Solaris]: Tyranitar, Superpower.

[Solaris]: On the girl.

[Amaria]: A-ah...!

[Solaris]: Team Meteor, retreat.

{Team Meteor exits area}

[Amaria]: Ugh...

[Amaria]: Good job on shutting that thing down, <player>...

[Amaria]: I'm-- I'm okay...

[Amaria]: Just a little winded.

[Amaria]: Well, now the water won't be polluted anymore.

[Amaria]: But he said... it's too late?

[Amaria]: It's true, a lot's been ruined, but in time. the Water Treatment Center under the city will clean it out.

[Amaria]: So, I think we did something really great today-- ow!

[Amaria]: Deliverance, return!

[Amaria]: That attack might have hurt a little bit after all...

[Amaria]: But, you still need a way to cross the lake, don't you?

[Amaria]: Well, shoot.

[Amaria]: Okay... You can take my boat.

[Amaria]: It's true that the toxic water will probably destroy it if it's used, but...

[Amaria]: I get the feeling you need it now more than I'll need it later.

[Amaria]: So, here.

{player receives Harbor Key}

[Amaria]: That key opens my dock in the Coral Ward. You know, where we first ran into each other?

[Amaria]: Help yourself to the boat.

[Amaria]: Me? I think I'm just gonna go back home and rest for a while.

[Amaria]: Tania's probably waiting for me, too... Ahaha~

[Amaria]: I live up in the Adventurine Region, north of Reborn City, so if you're ever in the area, please drop by!

[Amaria]: And... thanks for your help! Truly.

Tanzan Meteor Base battle speech
Pre-battle speech

[Zel]: Behave, you stupid vermin!

[zeL]: Er, that is... Um...

[zeL]: Would you please listen to us, Abra?

{ZEL teleports}

[Dr. Sigmund]: I believe that was Abra's way of politely declining.

[Zel]: You little...

[Zel]: ...What, <player> made it back?

[Zel]: This thing really is useless.

[Dr. Sigmund]: Perhaps it would be best to just terminate the project before this "Lin" arrives.

[Dr. Sigmund]: It sounds like she has a rather critical nature.

[zEl]: This level of uncontrolled power would indeed be unacceptable. 

[zeL]: But can we really hurt the poor Abra after all we've put it through?

[Zel]: We can't do anything at all if we can't even get close enough to deactivate the machine without the stupid thing jumping us away.

{ZEL teleports}

[Zel]: I don't need your sass, Abra!

[zEl]: <player>, you wish to spare the people of Spinel Town the chaos caused by this untamed teleportational energy, correct?

[Zel]: Good idea.

[Zel]: Let's just let <player> deal with it!

[Zel]: Go ahead, take the little bugger out!

[Zel]: It'll work out for all of us with how ANNOYING it is--

{ZEL teleports}

[Dr. Sigmund]: ...ZEL?

{ZEL enters through the door}

[Zel]: OKAY, that's enough!

[Zel]: <player>, deal with this.

[Zel]: We aren't gonna stop you, just take down this thing and you can put the chaos in Chrysolia to rest!

Post-battle speech

[Dr. Sigmund]: That seems to be a relief.

[Dr. Sigmund]: So, Eve, will the nearby regions return to normal now or is the damage permanent?

[zEl]: Any objects that have been moved by Abra's energy previously will remain where they are.

[zEl]: And further, there are likely some objects that will still move, already having been imbued with unstable psychic energy.

[zEl]: However, no more instances of such things will be created.

[zEl]: Slowly, Chrysolia will calm itself.

{Sirius enters area}

[Sirius]: Lin has just arrived.

[Sirius]: ...<player> is back?

[zeL]: Um... yes.

[zeL]: And they helped us subdue Abra, so...

[Sirius]: Lin can't know that there's an enemy among us. She'll be furious.

[Sirius]: Right, <player>.

[Sirius]: You're going to pretend to be among our ranks.

[Sirius]: You're a new recruit.

[Sirius]: Understand?

[Sirius]: You may not like it.

[Sirius]: Neither do we.

[Sirius]: But I suggest we temporarily compromise or else we'll both be ripped to shreds.

[Sirius]: Got it?

{Lin enters area}

[Lin]: Report.

[Sirius]: We experimented with using the PULSE to amplify Abra's powers to teleport a party into the heart of the ruin.

[Sirius]: However, in the end, Abra's power could not be controlled, and the project was terminated.

[Lin]: In competent.

[Lin]: Why are these here?

[Sirius]: This is <player>... A new recruit.

[Sirius]: <player> has been helping us with the PULSE-Abra project.

[Lin]: Lying becomes you, Sirius.

[Sirius]: I beg your pardon?

[Lin]: And the other?

[Dr. Sigmund]: Ahem. Excuse me fot the tardy introduction. My name is Dr. Sigmund Connal, resident psychiatrist to Reborn City and proud administrator to the city orphanage.

[Sirius]: Dr. Connal has been a grea asset to us.

[Sirius]: With his help, we have now obtained two of the four keys: Ruby and Amethyst.

[Lin]: Doctor.

[Dr. Sigmund]: Forgive me for asking, but have we, somehow, met before?

[Lin]: Impossible.

[Dr. Sigmund]: Y-yes.

[Sirius]: As for the other keys, Solaris has reported a lead on Sapphire, and Elias is currently tracking down Emerald.

{Screen shakes}

[Grunt]: Commander!

[Grunt]: A giant Steelix has just breached the side of the base!

[Grunt]: It bit right through the holding-cells!

[Sirius]: A what?

{Screen shakes}

[Lin]: You wouldn't happen to know anything about this, would you <player>?

[Lin]: Size doesn't equate to strength.

[Lin]: I'll deal with this.

{Lin exits area}

{Screen shakes}

[Sirius]: <player>, leave now.

[Sirius]: If she doesn't see you again, it's better for everyone involved.

[Sirius]: Get going.

[Sirius]: This will be your only chance.

Devon Corp battle speech
Pre-battle speech

[zeL]: Please calm down! Please!

[Zel]: Just what the hell did you mess up so badly?

[zEl]: This wasn't a user error.

[zEl]: Some kind of corrupted program must have been injected into the system.

[Zel]: So then your security was just shit.

[zeL]: Stop blaming her! I don't see you helping!

[Zel]: Shut up, Lumi. Can the data be repaired or not?

[zEl]: All PULSE2 and Arc-PULSE data have been left unaltered.

[zEl]: However, the PULSE-Magnezone damage is irreparable.

[zEl]: I will need to rewrite it.

[zeL]: What? But... if Magnezone is damaged--

[Zel]: There's no time to rewrite it! Lin wanted all the PULSEs out of here hours ago.

[zEl]: I'm aware. Hence why the PULSE2 and Arc-PULSE projects have been safely relocated.

[zEl]: However, Magnezone cannot be moved under the current circumstances.

[zEl]: The timing could not be worse.

[Zel]: Tch, Lin must have known this coming.

[Zel]: I bet it has something to do with the hero brigade she has hauled in here.

[Zel]: They're probably plotting to destroy Magnezone like all the other ones.

[Zel]: Speak of the devil, huh?

[zEl]: So it's too late already.

[zeL]: <player>... Did you really come to destroy everything here? {Yes/No}

Yes

[Zel]: I knew it.

[Zel]: Well, there's no way in hell we're gonna let you do that!

[zEL]: Control your temper, Zero.

[zEL]: Remember, Lin requested that <player> not be harmed.

[Zel]: Yeah, but I'm not about to sit back and let them do whatever they want with my projects.

[zeL]: Your projects? Eve is the one that does all the hard work!

[zeL]: You just bully her all the time!

[Zel]: Just stop talking and fight already!

No

[Zel]: Yeah, right. Don't bother lying!

[Zel]: We know all about your little hacking scheme too!

[Zel]: There's no way in hell we're gonna let you get away with this!

[zEL]: Control your temper, Zero.

[zEL]: Remember, Lin requested that <player> not be harmed.

[Zel]: Yeah, but I'm not about to sit back and let them do whatever they want with my projects.

[zeL]: Your projects? Eve is the one that does all the hard work!

[zeL]: You just bully her all the time!

[Zel]: Just stop talking and fight already!

Post-battle speech

[zeL]: Magnezone, Magnezone, no! Please be okay!

[zeL]: Please--

{Explosion}

[Zel]: ...

[Zel]: Uggh...

[Zel]: It's so quiet...

[Zel]: The PULSE--

[Zel]: We didn't lose hearing in the explosion, did we?

[Zel]: H-hey, Lumi, Eve! Say something!

[Zel]: No-- Magnezone!

[Zel]: I...

[Zel]: I'm alone.

[Zel]: I'm alone...

[Zel]: I'm alone, I'm alone, I'm alone, I'm alone, I'm alone...

[Zel]: And I'm...

[Zel]: Empty.

[Zero]: I need to get to Agate.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Zero's name is a possible reference to his Umbreon. It could also be a reference that he used to be a regular unimportant grunt, hence a Zero.
  • Eve's name is a word play on 'evening', a reference to her Espeon.
  • Lumi's name means 'snow' in Finnish, a reference to her Glaceon.
  • ZEL's VS sprite is based on that of Grimsley from Generation V of the official Pokémon games.
  • The types of the three Eeveelutions ZEL uses in battle reflects their personalities-Ice, being rather frail, matches with Lumi, Psychic, relating to the mind, matches with Eve, and Dark matches with Zero's more cruel personality.
  • The double battle alongside Taka is the only Battle where Zel's team doesn't feature a PULSE. Instead, Taka gets the PULSE.
  • According to Amethyst, ZEL belongs to Reborn user Ice, and gave permission to Amethyst to use them, as well several other characters belonging to him and another user, Will. The eeveelutions as ZEL's signature pokemons were also part of the original character. [1]
