Lorenzo (Japanese: ボンゴレ Vongole) is a primary character from Pokémon Heroes. He is the grandfather of Bianca, and is also curator of the city's museum, a gondola builder and the protector of Latios and Latias. He is a kind man with much wisdom but can be stern and angry at times.

History

Lorenzo

He first appeared during Ash's visit to the museum where he explained the history of the city and the Defense Mechanism of Alto Mare (DMA). Ash got distracted by the presence of Bianca, whom he thought was the seemingly normal girl he had saved earlier (who was not Bianca, but rather Latias disguised as her), and was scolded by Lorenzo for absentmindedly leaning on the DMA. He followed Bianca and Latias to the secret garden of Latios and Latias. Lorenzo arrived just in time to prevent Latios from attacking Ash and Pikachu, and allowed Latias to play with them. He showed Ash the Soul Dew and explained that he knew the father of the two Guardians, and how he now protected Latios and Latias after their father's death. As Lorenzo, Bianca, and Ash left the garden, they cut through Lorenzo's workshop where he constructs gondolas.

That night, Lorenzo was later incapacitated by Annie's Espeon. He was later found by Bianca, and they rushed to the museum where they were captured and bound by Ariados. They could only watch helplessly as Oakley used the DMA and Latios suffered the consequences. Ash, Latias, and Pikachu came to save them and stopped the DMA. Lorenzo warned Annie not to touch the corrupted Soul Dew, but it was too late for her to hear his warning. Annie touching the corrupted Soul Dew caused the DMA to go out of control, to ruinous effects. Lorenzo was present at Latios's sacrifice and was the first to realize that he had died. He later bid farewell to Ash, Misty and Brock as they left the city.

He was later seen in the credits with a construction crew, appearing to be either rebuilding or fixing the DMA in the museum.
