In this game, Dusknoir plays a good guy in the beginning, when you first meet him. Everybody thinks he is a great and famous explorer. He saves you a few times too. But when you capture the "evil" [[Grovyle]] (who's really your partner when you were a human), Dusknoir grabs you and your partner and drags you into another world. You end up battling him and several [[Sableye]] before going to [[Temporal Tower]].
