From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
(Japanese: ラクツ Rakutsu) is a main character in the manga series Pokémon Adventures. He is a high-ranking member of the International Police. His rank is superintendent and his codename is Black No. 2 (Japanese: 黒の２号).
Rakutsu is a member of the International Police who is tasked with searching for members of the villainous group Team Plasma. When on the job, he acts like a womanizer by constantly flirting with the girls around him. When he is not on the job, he takes on a more serious and professional persona.
Rakutsu makes his first appearance breaking up with a teary Yancy, as they both feel that their relationship is interfering with her career as an idol. Afterward, he travels to the Aspertia Gym with Petashi to start their class at the Trainer's School. Upon arriving, Hugh gets angry at Rakutsu and exclaims that he needs to focus more on making himself stronger instead of flirting with girls.
Annoyed by their disrupting the class, the new teacher, Cheren, forces the three to stand outside while the class is still in session. Soon after, the three encounter a new classmate named Faitsu. While she informs the class about herself, Rakutsu takes the time to write down what she is saying in his notebook, much to Hugh's annoyance. The three get into another argument, leading Cheren to decide that it would be best for the entire class to battle each other.
Rakutsu and Faitsu both manage to win, which earns them two Pokédexes from Bianca. Although reluctant at first, Faitsu is coaxed into taking her Pokédex after Rakutsu sweet-talks her into it. Later, Rakutsu reveals that he is searching for Team Plasma members and crosses out Yancy and his classmates because he has considered all of them as having no connection to the team. He is approached by Looker, who had been searching for him. After defeating a Scolipede that attacked Looker, Rakutsu reveals that he is actually Looker's superior in the International Police.
- Rather than simply being named after the games, Rakutsu and Faitsu's names are corruptions of how the titles Black 2 and White 2 are pronounced in Japanese.
