PD: Doctor JonesHe alighted on the white ground, wings spread wide and robe fluttering around his ankles. I stared. Nick smiled down at me and extended a hand to help me to my feet. I took it, tearing my gaze away from his eyes and to his wings. Great, white angel wings.

"I thought you'd have black wings," I said tactlessly.
Nick's smile was quickly replaced with a frown and he smacked me upside the head. "I come all the way here to talk to you, and what, you thought I went to hell? Wow, I guess I really did misinterpret those last few moments." He huffed at me and turned on his heel, raising his wings to take off again. I all but tackled him, fighting feathers and a tangle of limbs to wrap my arms around his chest.
He flicked me off with one of his new wings.

To be clearer: the first time he saw Nick was the second time he visited his grave. Just a few sparse months after everything had finally calmed down, when the media wouldn't leave him alone and cities were suffocating. He felt lost. He went to the Oreburgh cemetery for help and some silence to think to himself.
He looked at Matthew's grave for the first time, and then he murmured, "I'm sorry to you, too."
Nick sat down beside him and simply said, "Nah, that part wasn't really your fault."
2. Zachary had been so terrified and so convinced he had finally snapped and gone crazy - what if I go crazy and kill people - that he stayed away from Oreburgh, from cities, from all humans for the next two months. Incidentally, he found that avoiding humanity was quite nice, but it had been a jarring experience nonetheless.
None of his Pokemon had seen the apparition. It had to have been all in his mind. He was, surely, going crazy.
