For the variant appearing in the games, see Dome Ace Tucker.

Dome Ace Tucker is a character appearing in the anime series, who is the Frontier Brain of the Battle Dome in the Battle Frontier in the Kanto region.


This section, or a part of it, has been transcluded from Dome Ace Tucker; any changes involving it should be made there instead. / 

Tucker is a tall and lean young man. He has long purple hair that has two thick locks that stick up and small purple eyes. He wears a purple skintight vest with a large V-neck, white trousers, and purple ankle boots. He also wears large white fairylike wings on his back, a gold tiara on his head with a Poké Ball theme, and gold wristbands on his wrists.


Unlike other Frontier Brains, Dome Ace Tucker makes a show out of his battles, using a combination of two opposite elements to dazzle the audience.


Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire

Scott described to Ash the Battle Frontier: Frontier Brains, like Tucker, were powerful Trainers, awaiting challengers in their facilities across Kanto region, which award Symbols upon being defeated.[1] Ash told his plan to challenge the Frontier Brains to Max and May, the latter thinking of accompanying Ash once more as she would challenge Pokémon Contests in Kanto region.[2]

Tucker was seen preparing for his upcoming battle with Ash for the Frontier Symbol of the Battle Dome, not realizing his stylists were Team Rocket. When time was nearing for the battle, after Tucker had his introduction, complete with all sorts of glitz and glamour, he told Ash that he looked forward to their battle. He reminded that if Ash defeated him, he would win the Tactics Symbol. With that, Tucker sent out his Arcanine and Swampert to show that Ash will be facing him in a Double Battle.

Ash sent out his Corphish and Swellow, counting on type advantage. At first, Tucker seemed to have the battle well in his favor: his Arcanine's Extreme Speed countered Swellow's moves, while Swampert deflected the attacks with Protect. Mounting an offense, his Swampert engulfed Ash's Pokémon in a whirlpool-like Water Pulse, atop of his Arcanine using Fire Blast to create the Fire/Water combo. Just as it looked as if Ash had lost, his Pokémon recovered, showing they were not down for the count yet. When Ash noticed how steam was generated around the arena when Corphish used Bubblebeam to cancel Tucker's Pokémon's attacks, he used that to his advantage as with all the steam.

Neither of Tucker's Pokémon were able to see each other or Ash's Pokémon to effectively counter-attack. With a final Crabhammer from Corphish and an Aerial Ace from Swellow, Tucker's Arcanine and Swampert are KO'ed, and Ash won. Tucker was able to rally his fans to congratulate Ash by showing good sportsmanship after his defeat, as he really enjoyed their match. As for the Tactics Symbol, when Ash wondered where it is, Tucker clued him in that he was able to somehow place it inside Ash's hat, thereby putting Ash one step closer to earning all the Frontier Symbols.[3] May was inspired by Tucker's Arcanine and Swampert's Fire/Water combination, as her Squirtle and Combusken combined Bubble and Fire Spin during the Grand Festival.[4]

Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl

Tucker appeared in a flashback with his Arcanine and Swampert when Ash recalled his journey to earn every symbol from the Battle Frontier.[5]
