|Ark (Viz: Matt)|
Ark is an admin, or "sub leader" (SSS), of Team Aqua.
Ark later kidnaps Flannery to learn more about Sapphire. He sits with her in a cable car going up Mt. Chimney, using her as bait for Sapphire. When Sapphire arrives, Ark locks them in and unleashes his Azumarill. Azumarill fills the cable car with water, trying to drown Sapphire and Flannery. Azumarill puts an air bubble around Ark's head so that he, alone, can breathe.
After Ark grows impatient with how long Sapphire can hold her breath, he lets out Sharpedo to finish her off. Sapphire sends out her Lairon, whose Iron Defense causes Sharpedo's fangs to break. The fangs immediately grow back, making Ark crow about a Sharpedo's innate abilities. Sapphire collapses, presumably passing out from lack of air; however, moments later, the back window of the cable car shatters open, water bursting out. Sapphire reveals she used one of Sharpedo's fangs to make a hole in the window.
Sapphire's Lairon uses Take Down to knock out Ark's Azumarill and Sharpedo.
