Bucky (Japanese: キイチ Kiichi) is a character of the day who appeared in The Dunsparce Deception.

He is a young boy who lives in Johto, in a small town between Ecruteak City and Olivine City. Bucky dreamed of capturing a Dunsparce. However, he missed out on his chance to capture one when he was out of town, when a swarm of Dunsparce came through the area. All of his friends captured a Dunsparce during that time, Bucky ultimately being the only one who didn't get one.

When Ash and his friends heard about this, they decided to help Bucky out by searching for a Dunsparce. Eventually, one turned up. Bucky, using his Caterpie, battled the Pokémon and successfully weakened it. He threw his Poké Ball, and caught it, leaving him very happy.

Bucky's Caterpie
Bucky used his Caterpie in a race for Dunsparce. Recently, he and his family went away to visit his sick grandfather. When they came back, all the kids in town had a Dunsparce, except Bucky, leaving him to want one too. When Bucky was asked by his friends to come to the park for a Dunsparce race, he told them he didn't have a Dunsparce, so instead he raced with his Caterpie and lost.

Later, Bucky used his Caterpie in a battle against a wild Dunsparce, in an attempt to catch it. Caterpie used its String Shot and Tackle to successfully weaken it.

Caterpie's known moves are Tackle and String Shot.

Bucky's Dunsparce
Bucky wanted to catch a Dunsparce as all the kids from his town had caught one while he was out of town. Bucky was asked by his friends to come to the park for a Dunsparce race, but he told them he didn't have a Dunsparce. He raced with his Caterpie instead and lost.

After the race, Ash and his friends decided to help Bucky to look for one. While searching on a plain, Ash's Pikachu and Misty's Togepi spotted one. Suddenly, Team Rocket appeared and wanted to steal the gang's Pokémon. They were easily defeated and blasted off again, but they unintentionally took a Dunsparce with them. Team Rocket closely observed it and decided to use it in a scheme to steal Bucky's friends' precious Dunsparce.

They successfully managed to do this at first, but later Ash and his friends, including Bucky's friends, found Team Rocket and sent them blasting off. In the end, Bucky used his Caterpie in a battle against the Dunsparce they had spotted earlier. Caterpie used its String Shot and Tackle to successfully weaken it, and Bucky then proceeded to capture it.

None of Dunsparce's moves are known.
