Yuko (Japanese: ユウコ Yūko) is a character from the seventh Pokémon movie, Destiny Deoxys. She is Professor Lund's assistant.


She works in Professor Lund's laboratory in LaRousse City, assisting Lund with his research and helping him in the task of reviving Deoxys from a Fossil they acquired four years ago at the North Pole. Despite Brock's infatuation with Rebecca, he also flirts with Yuko, and confidently speaks of his work in Professor Ivy's lab, something he very rarely does.

She also seems to serve the role as Tory's mother figure. She and Tory baked a large basket of Pokémon cookies for Ash, Brock, May, Max, Rebecca, Rafe and Sid before the second aurora borealis appeared over the city. She accompanied Professor Lund and Tory on their research trip to the North Pole.
