Ah, you timed your arrival well. I've just finished reading a book, you see. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Lucian. I am a user of the Psychic type. I must say, you've already proven yourself to be outstanding by coming this far. They say I am the toughest of the Elite Four. I'm afraid I will have to go all out against you to live up to that reputation.

–Lucian in Diamond, Pearl and Platinum

Lucian is the 4th and most powerful member of the Sinnoh Elite Four. He specializes in Psychic-type Pokémon.


Lucian is an elegant man, who has blue hair and blue-tinted glasses. He wears a red suit, with a white handkerchief in his pocket, over his black collared shirt, and has black shoes.


As a bookish type, Lucian prides himself of his knowledge and reputation. He is very intelligent and observant, doing his best to uphold his high esteemed power. Even with his mastery of the mind, Lucian doesn't belittle the player, in fact he's fairly respectful above anything.

  • Lucian's name likely comes from "lux" (Latin for light), "illusion," "hallucination," or possibly "lucid dream" (a dream in which the person experiencing it is aware that they're dreaming and have some measure of control over what happens in the dream). Goyō, his Japanese name, may come from 陽 (yō, Japanese for yang (the positive, light-associated side of yin and yang).
