From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Dorian (Japanese: リュウジ Ryūji) is a character of the day who appeared in Just Add Water.
Dorian is a Water-type Pokémon Trainer who runs the unofficial Coastline Gym on the eastern shores of the Johto region. Dorian puts on synchronized swimming shows with his Pokémon because he is a big fan of The Sensational Sisters: Daisy, Violet, and Lily. He regularly visits the Cerulean Gym for inspiration and hopes to someday open the Coastline Gym to League challengers. Dorian's Gym battles take place underwater, with Trainers using scuba diving gear to remain with their Pokémon. This makes the battles dynamic, with opponents able to deal blows from a multitude of angles.
One day, Misty was enraged when Dorian claimed Lily was prettier than she was and subsequently challenged him to a battle. Ash decided to challenge Dorian first, though his Totodile was defeated by Dorian's Lanturn. Misty then went up against Dorian in a three-on-three battle; Dorian and Misty won a round each. However, the third round was interrupted by Team Rocket, who used their underwater mecha to kidnap several of the Water Pokémon, along with Dorian and Misty.
Ash and Brock soon located the trio with Ash's Noctowl, while Misty's Psyduck, powered by its swelling headache prompted by Arbok's Bite, unleashed a powerful Psychic to blast Team Rocket off. Dorian and the others were reunited with their Pokémon shortly after. Misty was still keen to continue the match, though Dorian admitted Psyduck's surprising strength would easily defeat him. The pair agreed to a draw, and Dorian came to understand that Misty was just as strong as her sisters. Before the group left, Dorian took a commemorative photo with Misty, her Corsola, and Psyduck, which he pinned alongside his collection of Sensational Sisters photos.

| Lanturn first appeared performing alongside Dorian's other Pokémon in an underwater show. It later battered Team Rocket's Magikarp submarine, when the trio first tried to sneak into the Coastline Gym.
Dorian used his Lanturn against Ash's Totodile. Lanturn showcased its acrobatic prowess after it knocked Totodile out of the water with a Take Down from below before ramming Totodile into the seafloor with a Take Down from above. Lanturn then defeated Totodile with a Spark-Take Down combo.
Dorian called out Lanturn for his third round against Misty, though the match was halted when Team Rocket kidnapped Lanturn and the other Water Pokémon using their underwater crab mecha. It was later freed thanks to Misty's Psyduck.
Lanturn's known moves are Water Gun, Take Down, Supersonic, and Spark.
