Complete Monster: Team Galactic member Io is depicted as a cold, ruthless woman who won't hesitate to eliminate anyone, even her own subordinates, standing between her and what she wants. Five years prior to the story, she kidnapped Hiori's twin sister Lily, when both kids were only five years old; registered her into Team Galactic; and conducted experiments on her mind that wiped her memory of her old life, her family, and even having ever been kidnapped. She also had Lily routinely brainwashed via her Misamagius's powers. When Lily gets her memory back and turns against Team Galactic, Io takes her frustration out of her Number Two by having her Pokemon attack him, calling him worthless before attempting to kill both Lily and her brother. Io showed no loyalty to her organization's cause and sought to usurp control within it and then Take Over the World by exploiting the powers of the Pokémon Darkrai, whose Hypnosis technique would enslave the minds of every living being so that they'd all do her bidding. When warned that this could also ravage the planet and cover it in darkness, Io doesn't care so long as she can reign supreme. She is also shown to treat Pokémon as little more than weapons that she can hurt and use to hurt, even forcibly enhancing them to make them serve her purposes better. When Darkrai breaks free from the special Poké Ball she tries to catch it in, she tries to force it under her control.
