|“||I can give ya anythin'. Ya just gotta help me out for a sec. Fair business, I'd say!||„|
Hoopa claims to be a businessman, along with his Shiny brother, travelling from dimension to dimension through subspace to make 'deals' with anyone whom he takes interest to. These 'deals' mostly consist of Hoopa asking for information on the world's greatest valuables, with the aim to obtain and sell them later on to become even richer than they already are. If the 'business partner' agrees to help the brothers, the former will be richly rewarded; if not, the Hoopa will attempt to convince their conversation partner to spill the beans anyway. This method of business has netted these phantom brothers many riches over the course of thousands of years.
The Hoopa Brothers in Gensōkyō
Hoopa has two different Formes he can take on. His most common Forme is Hoopa Confined; this Forme's powers have been sealed. The seal can be undone by using the Prison Bottle, turning the Mischief Pokémon into Hoopa Unbound, the Djinn Pokémon. Hoopa Unbound is far stronger than Hoopa Confined in general.

— Hoopa Unbound
The form Hoopa takes on after using the Prison Bottle, which releases Hoopa's sealed power and transforms him into the maniacally avaricious Hoopa Unbound. This madman of a Pokémon possesses tremendous power, capable of mind controlling individuals and summoning them to him from anywhere. Hoopa Unbound's rings are large enough to plunder entire castles, if not much more than that. He is ruthless, heartless, insolent and utterly brutal, and nothing will stop this malicious Pokémon once he has set his eyes on what he desires...
