(Japanese: ルーク Luke) is a recurring character of the Pokémon anime that first debuted in BW038.


Luke worked at the oldest movie theater in his town with Matthew assisting with the projections in exchange for watching the movies for free. Occasionally he would notice one of the female movie characters sitting in the audience. Intrigued, he went down to check after one of the movies and she turned out to be a Zorua. He and the Zorua shared a common love for films and offered to give her a part in the movie he was directing. However, he made her play all of the characters. Angered, Zorua ran away which is when he met Ash, Iris, and Cilan, and the three of them volunteered to look for the Zorua together.

Once Zorua was found, Cilan worked out the cause of Zorua's frustration with Luke and the two reconciled, giving her only one role, while Cilan, Ash, and Iris offered to play the other characters. Team Rocket almost ruined his film when they attempted to steal Zorua, but thanks to Cilan's improvisation, his film managed to work out in the end. After his movie was premiered in the theater, Luke decided to partake in a tournament Don George was hosting.

Luke accompanied the group to Raimon Town and registered himself in the Don Battle tournament in BW039. He also was documenting the events that take place on and off the battle field using his video camera. While documenting, he occasionally got interrupted by Bianca who was either curious or wanted to know where his Zorua was. Luke's first opponent in the Don Battle tournament was Sekimoto. In BW040, he battled using his Golett against Sekimoto's Darmanitan and was victorious.

Luke's Zorua used to watch films in Matthew's theater, disguised as different actresses from the films he would put on. She later met Luke after a movie and accepted his offer to be the leading cast in his film. However she became fed up with having to play all the characters and ran away, later appearing disguised as the Miracle Fighter of a movie in front of Ash, Iris, and Cilan. She used her ability to disguise as Iris, Pikachu, and Axew to flee from Luke. After she reconciled with Luke, she played the role as Princess Julia in his film. She was later kidnapped by Team Rocket, and was rescued by Cilan and Ash. Finally, she transformed into a female Meowth to fool Team Rocket's Meowth and sent them away with Night Daze.

It then used String Shot to form a protective shell around itself to protect it from Stunfisk's Scald. After being launched into the air by Stunfisk, Larvesta knocked it out with a powerful Flamethrower, winning the match for Luke.
