This Pupitar, nicknamed Cruise, is a rock/ground-type Pokémon owned by Ritchie.


Ritchie sent Cruise to battle Butch and Cassidy, who tried to steal the baby Lugia. Cruise used Take Down on Butch's Houndour; Houndour retaliated with Flamethrower, but Cruise resisted the flames and used Sandstorm.[1] Inside Team Rocket's base, Ritchie sent Cruise to battle Team Rocket grunts, to go to a room where Lugia was captured.[2]
