'''Lance''' (Japanese: '''ワタル''' ''Wataru'') is a {{pkmn|master}} {{type2|Dragon}} {{pkmn|Trainer}}, a member of the [[Kanto]] [[Elite Four]] in [[Generation I]] and [[Generation III]] and the League [[Champion]] in [[Generation II]] and [[Generation IV]].
 
 
==In the games==
 
[[Image:FireRed LeafGreen Lance.png|right|thumb|150px|Art of Lance from ''Pokémon FireRed'' and ''LeafGreen'']]
 
In [[Generation I]] and the [[Generation III]] remakes, Lance is the fourth and final member of the [[Elite Four]]. He must be defeated before facing {{ga|Blue}}, the [[Pokémon champion|League Champion]]. By the [[Generation II]] games, he has proceeded to become League Champion.
 
 
He raises {{type2|Dragon}} Pokémon, which are both hard to catch and raise, but he prefers the superiority of Dragon-type Pokémon, believing them to be virtually indestructible.
 
 
Known as a cool and heroic Trainer, Lance has a large fan-following. Lance also seems to have a liking for capes, as he is often seen buying identical capes at the [[Celadon Department Store]].
 
 
Lance's grandfather is the elder of a famous clan of Dragon masters. [[Clair]] is his cousin, and his hometown is [[Blackthorn City]].
 
 
Lance appeared at [[Mahogany Town]] to help the player fight Team Rocket in [[Johto]]. Lance rewards the player with the {{m|Whirlpool}} HM for helping him put an end to Team Rocket's sinister plans.

===={{g|Stadium 2}}====
 
In Pokémon Stadium 2, Lance is the champion, who is fought at the end of the Elite Four. As the player must use the same Pokémon that it used against the Elite Four, Lance is extremely difficult to defeat with Rental Pokémon, but not impossible (due to the element of chance). Once Lance is defeated, the player can battle any gym leaders in the Kanto region at any time.

[[Image:Lance Disguised TR.jpg|left|180px|thumb|Lance disguised as a Team Rocket Grunt]]
 
Lance is a [[Pokémon Trainer]] famous in the [[Pokémon League]]. He is a member of an organization called the [[Pokémon G-Men]].
 
 
Lance's first appeared in ''[[EP235|Talkin' 'Bout an Evolution]]''. When [[Team Rocket]] started up an evil scheme at the [[Lake of Rage]], Lance showed up to investigate. He met {{Ash}}, [[Misty]] and [[Brock]] there, saving the children from some formidable [[Rocket Grunts]]. Ash wanted to help Lance in his mission, but Lance said it was too dangerous.
 
 
Team Rocket was trying to investigate the properties of a {{shiny2|Red}} {{p|Gyarados}} so that they could learn how to force Pokémon to [[Evolution|evolve]]. Lance was able to destroy Team Rocket's machine and blow up their laboratory. Ash was able to calm the [[Red Gyarados]] at first, but it continued to go berserk. Finally, Lance caught it to keep it from destroying [[Mahogany Town]].
 
 
Lance later appeared again in ''[[AG097|Gaining Groudon]]'' and ''[[AG098|The Scuffle of Legends]]'', where he helped stop the rampage of {{p|Kyogre}} and {{p|Groudon}}.

==In the Pokémon Adventures manga==
 
[[Image:Lance Special.png|300px|right|thumb|Lance on his {{p|Aerodactyl}}]]
 
Lance is primarily a villain in [[Pokémon Adventures]]. As the leader of the Elite Four, he wishes to exterminate the human race, save for a few people who he deems to be kind enough to Pokémon. Apparently also from [[Viridian City]], Lance was blessed with the powers of the [[Viridian Forest]] as {{adv|Yellow}} was. He has the power to telepathically communicate with Pokémon, as well as heal their wounds. Lance also has the ability to control or brainwash any Dragon-type Pokémon, as well as most Pokémon similar to Dragons (such as Aerodactyl or Tyranitar).
 
 
He first appears at he Vermillion before the start of the Vermillion City Surfing Competition. The {{p|Dragonair}} that was to be offered as a prize to the winner was actually his. He then attacked Vermilion City and destroyed it, saying he was looking for something. When Yellow came after him he tried to capture [[Pika]] to please Agatha and Lorelei but once Pikachu learned Surf he too failed. Before the battle could continue, he mysteriously disappeared.
 
 
He next appeared on [[Cerise Island]] battling Blaine and Yellow. When Blaine released Mewtwo Blaine and Yellow were able to gain the upper hand against Lance's Aerodactyl and his two Dragonair. However, due to Blaine's link with Mewto they could only battle together for about three minutes and with time running out Blaine decided to target Lance's Poké Balls so he couldn't call out any other Pokémon and would have to battle with his weakened Pokémon that were already out. He succeeded in destroying the balls only for Blaine to be knocked unconscious due to Mewtwo's time out being run too long. Lance then chuckled to himself, revealing that he had called his Pokémon out of their balls before the battle even began.
 
 
During Lance's battle with Yellow both of them were equally matched, Lance luring the battle out onto the top of Cerise Island, a volcano. Lance then once again gained the upper hand by having his Gyarados and Dragonair make green, red, and blue bubbles so they could not be detected in sunlight. Just when it seemed when Yellow was about to lose, Giovanni arrived and helped subdue Lance, using his {{p|Rhyhorn}} to create a sandstorm to make the bubbles visible. But this capturing only proved to be part of his plan, as he needed Giovanni's badge since it was the last badge he needed for the Badge Energy Amplifier to summon Lugia, so he lured Giovanni to the middle of the island so the Earth Badge would be automatically ripped from him and the Amplifier would automatically activate, summoning Lugia. Lance wanted Lugia to help accomplish his goals, but Yellow's Pokémon were able to drive Lugia away once they evolved and Yellow was able to channel their power into Pika's Megavolt.
 
 
This interested Lance, as he wanted to find out who Lugia's real owner was. It wasn't often that he lost control of dragon-like Pokémon.
 
 
Lance disappeared for a while, investigating Lugia and working behind the scenes. He gave {{adv|Silver}} advice on how to defeat Team Rocket in [[Johto]], as well as a Tyranitar. Working through Silver, Lance tried to help defeat the [[Masked Man]].

==Trivia==
 
* Lance has battles with two illegal Pokémon: the Aerodactyl that knows {{m|Rock Slide}} that he uses in Gold, Silver, and Crystal, and the Dragonite that knows {{m|Barrier}} that he uses in Red and Blue. Furthermore, all his Dragonite from [[Generation II]], as well as in the double battle against Team Rocket and the first battle against him in the Pokémon League in [[Generation IV]], are underleveled.
 
* It is interesting to note that as of {{game|Yellow}} Lance has red hair, while a card depicting him in {{OBP|Monopoly: Pokémon Edition|1999}} shows artwork of him with purple hair. This is probably due to the fact that the board game was made before Yellow was released and his sprite in Red and Blue is grayish-blue in color.
 
* Though his type theme is Dragon Pokémon, in Generation II, only three of his Pokémon are actually of the Dragon type; all of them Dragonite. Interestingly, all six of his Pokémon have {{t|Flying}} as their secondary type.
 
* Lance, [[Bruno]], and [[Koga]] are the only members of the Elite Four who have appeared in all four generations.
 
** Although, in Generations I and III, Koga was a Gym Leader.
 
* Lance is the only member of the Johto Elite Four that on the second time through, still does not have a team of only his type, with {{p|Charizard}} and {{p|Gyarados}} not being Dragon-types.
 
* In the rematch battles in HeartGold/SoulSilver, Lance uses every {{type2|Dragon}} [[pseudo-legendary]]. He also uses [[Tyranitar]], another pseudo-legendary, in [[Pokémon Stadium 2]] (both Round 1 and 2). This means that Lance has used every pseudo-legendary other than [[Metagross]], making him the Trainer who has used the most pseudo-legendaries in the series thus far.
 
* Lance is the only Trainer the {{player}} can battle with in a double battle ({{OBP|Rocket Hideout|Mahogany Town}}), against in a double battle ([[Dragon's Den]]), and against in a single battle (as [[Champion]]) so far.
 
* Despite taking place three years later, Lance's Pokémon are at a lower level in Generation II then they were in Generation I. The same thing happens to [[Bruno]].
 
* Lance is the only Champion so far to not use a {{type2|Grass}} Pokémon.
