"…It's over. But it's an odd feeling. I'm not angry that I lost. In fact, I feel happy. Happy that I witnessed the rise of a great new Champion!""
— Lance in Gold, Silver and Crystal.

Lance is a recurring character in Pokémon. He is a user of Dragon-types being the final Elite Four member in Red, Blue and their remakes.

In Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal and their remakes, he is the Champion.

Appearance

Lance is a tall, thin man with bright scarlet red spiked hair, pale skin, and dark eyes. He wears a medieval-looking navy blue tunic with red-orange trim, a brown belt around his waist, and large black boots with orange two rings around the top of each boot. The cuffs of his long sleeves are black with orange zigzagging trim separating the cuff from the navy blue part of the sleeve. He sports a long, flowing cape around his neck which is black on the outside and crimson red on the inside.

Personality

Lance is a very noble and respectful person. He is serious about his training and will not hold back his strength when it comes to battling any challengers. He is an expert at training Dragon-Pokémon, and is extremely skilled at battling. He believes that his inner-strength lies in his ability to professionally train Dragons, and he believes deeply in his Pokémon, that they are strong and superior. Despite this, he is a good sport, and will not become angry if he loses to the player, but will instead gracefully accept defeat, and will happily congratulate them on defeating the Elite Four and becoming the new Champion.

Biography

Games

As in the Anime, Lance is in the games a Dragon Master.

Lance has appeared in the Pokémon series games from Generation I-III. He first appeared in the original Red and Blue games, being the final member of the Elite Four, and again in Generation III's Red and Blue remakes, FireRed and LeafGreen. Lance in the Generation II games differed from the previous though, as he was Pokémon Champion by this time.

In all games, Lance is a proficient user of Dragon-type Pokémon, believing that their difficulty in raising them shows that they are superior and strong.
