Rafe (Japanese: リュウ Ryū) is a character from Destiny Deoxys. He is the older brother of Audrey and Kathryn.

History

Rafe and Sid in the Battle Tower

Rafe is a skilled Pokémon Trainer who came to LaRousse City with his twin sisters Audrey and Kathryn, as well as his friends Sid and Rebecca, to compete at the Battle Tower. On his way to the Battle Tower, he and his group met Ash Ketchum and his friends. When Rafe and Sid participated at the Battle Tower, their first match was against Ash and Tory Lund. He and Sid won easily due to Tory's inexperience with Pokémon.

When Deoxys' clones began abducting people and Pokémon, Rafe was able to fend off the clones that came near his group with the help of his Blaziken, Ash, and Pikachu. Later, Rafe helped free the abducted citizens of LaRousse City. He also worked to restore energy to regenerate the body of the other Deoxys.

Character

Rafe is a calm and collected young man who thinks before he acts. He is protective of his sisters and cares for his Pokémon and friends. He can become cocky or condescending after a victory as seen when he defeated Ash and Tory.

Pokémon

Rafe's Blaziken
Blaziken
Blaziken is the only Pokémon of Rafe's party shown in Destiny Deoxys. It first appeared helping Ash with the moving floors in the city. Later, Rafe used Blaziken in battle against Tory and Ash in the Battle Tower and won easily.

Blaziken and Rafe battled the Deoxys clones while Ash and the rest of the group moved onwards to safety.

When all the Trainers tried to manually move the windmills, Blaziken moved one alone by jumping on it repeatedly.

Blaziken's known moves are Blaze Kick, Flamethrower, and Overheat.
