Nicky (Japanese: クック Kukku) is a minor character appearing in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 and the Pokémon anime. He is the drummer for Roxie's band.

In the anime

Nicky appeared in Rocking the Virbank Gym! Part 1 and Rocking the Virbank Gym! Part 2. He is a drummer playing with Roxie and Billy Jo in the band "Koffing and the Toxics", which is quite well known in Unova. He also provides music during Roxie's Gym Battles. During the battle Roxie had with Ash, he interacted with the audience several times and stirred them up so they could cheer for Roxie.
