Lucas (Japanese: コウキ Kōki) is the male player character of Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum and their Generation VIII remakes Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. His female counterpart is Dawn.

In the games

As the protagonist

Lucas lives in Twinleaf Town with his mother and dreams big, so he and his best friend (and soon-to-be rival) have high hopes of catching the Legendary Pokémon of their nearby lake. After meeting Professor Rowan and his assistant Dawn, they are attacked by wild Starly and, as a last resort, use the Pokémon in the briefcase the Professor has forgotten. After bringing the Pokémon back Lucas receives the Pokémon he used as well as a Pokédex and goes on to gather the eight Badges of Sinnoh, defeat Team Galactic and conquer the Pokémon League all before taking on the Battle Tower.

In Pokémon Platinum, Lucas and Barry instead go to visit Professor Rowan at his lab rather than go to the lake in search of a Pokémon of the same rarity as a red Gyarados. They receive their Pokémon on Route 201 when Professor Rowan realizes that they are so dedicated to Pokémon as to attempt to travel from Twinleaf Town to Sandgem Town through the tall grass without any Pokémon of their own.

He has to stop Team Galactic from trying to use either DialgaD or PalkiaP to destroy the entire universe in order to create a new one.

In Pokémon Platinum, Team Galactic attempts to use both Dialga and Palkia, but they are stopped by Giratina. Finally, Lucas has to go to the Distortion World and face Giratina, in order to stop both worlds from destroying each other.

Years later, his exploits are referenced by Cynthia, who remembers a young Trainer who defeated her.

As a non-playable character

If the player chooses Dawn, he will become Rowan's assistant for the game. Lucas lives in Sandgem Town with his little sister, grandfather, and father—who works as an assistant of Professor Rowan. He is already the Professor's assistant at the beginning of the game. He has already received his starter Pokémon before the player (a Turtwig, Chimchar or Piplup, whichever is weak to the player's starter). He also demonstrates to the player how to capture Pokémon by capturing a wild Bidoof.
