Rafe (Japanese: リュウ Ryū) is a character from Destiny Deoxys. He is the older brother of Audrey and Kathryn.
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, where he met Ash Ketchum and his friends. When he and Sid participated at the Battle Tower, their first match was against Ash and Tory Lund, and 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, and also worked to restore energy to the city to regenerate the body of the other Deoxys.
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 go a bit over the top in cockiness after a victory as seen when he defeated Ash and Tory.
| 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.
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.
