"…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, Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal.

Lance's Artwork in FireRed and LeafGreen

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.

In the Gold and Silver games, it is revealed that Lance has a cousin named Clair, who is the Blackthorn City Gym Leader, and who also specializes in using Dragon-type Pokémon. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, he and Clair will fight a double battle against the player and the player's rival.

Anime

Lance's first appearance in the anime series was in the episode Talkin' 'Bout an Evolution. Here, Lance was shown battling the Team Rocket organization as they experimented in forced evolution of Pokémon. It was in this episode that a shiny Red Gyarados went on a rampage close to Mahogany Town, which caused Lance to capture it so it would not destroy the nearby town. Lance was again seen in the episodes Gaining Groudon and The Scuffle of Legends, where he assisted in stopping the Legendary Pokémon Groudon and Kyogre.
