Three Team Plasma grunts steal a dragon fossil, among other things, from the Nacrene Museum, causing assistant director Hawes to panic. He asks for Black and White's assistance in apprehending the thieves, since Lenora isn't present. White stays to guard the museum while Black, with Munna's help, figures out where the thieves went and follows them.
Burgh catches up to Black and says that Lenora asked him to help. They encounter the animated dragon fossil, which attacks them. Black realizes that somebody must be controlling it and he finds Gorm and the grunts. Gorm, deciding that Black is a serious threat, has the skeleton attempt to kill him.
Burgh attacks Gorm's Cofagrigus, who is controlling the skeleton, and defeats it. Gorm declares that the fossil is not the one they seek, not the one who will stand alongside their king. Team Plasma escapes.
Black and Burgh return the stolen exhibits to the museum and Burgh asks if Black deliberately lured Burgh into the battle against Gorm in order to keep his Pokémon secret; Black sheepishly admits it and reveals that he knows Burgh is Castelia's gym leader, so Black didn't want to reveal too many of his Pokémon.
After Black and White depart, Burgh thinks to himself that he is more concerned about Team Plasma—and the dragon Pokémon they are seeking.
