Frank
Frank when he was young

Frank (Japanese: フランク Frank) is a character of the day from Lights! Camera! Pika!. He is a movie director and the self-proclaimed "biggest Pikachu fan in the world". He often adds the word 'Pika' to certain words.

As a child, Frank grew up surrounded by Pikachu. He was a sick and frail child, but the Pikachu always cheered him up. When he was old enough, Frank started going on a journey together with a Pikachu. Later in his life, Frank married and started a family. At a certain moment, his wife would pass away, but the Pikachu were on his side again to show support. Driven by this, Frank decided he wanted to deliver the same smiles he got from the Pikachu to children all over the world by making movies.

Frank at his marriage

In the present day, Frank was shooting a film at Pikachu Land called Lightning Fast! Brave and Strong! Super-Pikachu! with his granddaughter Jean, when Ash and his friends passed. Ash's Pikachu started playing with Frank's Pikachu, and Frank immediately saw potential in Ash's Pikachu. He showed himself to Ash and his friends and offered Ash's Pikachu the leading role in his movie, which Ash and Pikachu accepted. He then took them to his mansion, the Pikachu Manor, and introduced the other stars of his movie to them, all the Cosplay Pikachu varieties. He revealed to the group that while he did have an idea for the script of the movie, he had not written it down on paper yet. As such, Clemont offered to help Frank with writing the script.
