Baron Alberto (Japanese: アルベルト男爵 Baron Alberto) is a character in the first Diamond & Pearl series movie, The Rise of Darkrai.


Baron Alberto as a Lickilicky

During the events in the movie, he was transformed into his Lickilicky due to a combination of Darkrai's Dark Void and Palkia's interference with space. Lickilicky dreamed that it was Alberto and thus Alberto became Lickilicky. Angered by this, Alberto offers a reward to whoever could take down Darkrai. Later on he turns back to his normal form when the effects of Dark Void fade.

Alberto is seen again during the credits of Arceus and the Jewel of Life. He is piloting his own hot air balloon and still attempting to win Alice's heart.


He means to have Alice as his wife, but the feeling is not mutual. However this doesn't seem to get in the way of his goal. When Alice says she wants Tonio, Alberto just laughs thinking that her feelings for Tonio are a joke.

He constantly insists that all the trouble happening in Alamos Town was caused by Darkrai and was intent on stopping it.

Baron Alberto's Lickilicky
Lickilicky is Alberto's main Pokémon. It is first seen during Darkrai's first appearance when it tries to use Hyper Beam, but misses, resulting in Darkrai firing back a Dark Void which ends up hitting Ash. Later Lickilicky gets hit by Darkrai's Dark Void, causing him to fall into a nightmare. Due to Palkia's space disruption, this nightmare causes Baron Alberto to transform into Lickilicky. Team Rocket are later seen carrying Lickilicky while it is asleep. After Lickilicky wakes up it tries to save Alice from falling off a bridge but fails leaving Tonio to help her.

Lickilicky's known moves are Hyper Beam, Gyro Ball , Lick, and Wrap.

Debut Strange Happenings Around Town


  • Alberto's name is likely a pun on the Japanese name of his Pokémon, causing him to be called "Baron Berobelt" (compare: アルベルト Aruberuto and ベロベルト Beroberuto) several times. He keeps his name in the dub and is called "Baron Lickilicky"; thus eliminating the pun. Adding to the joke, his overall appearance is based on a Lickilicky.
  • Alberto is the second human in the anime to be transformed into a Pokémon after Ash.
  • It can be assumed that Alberto's Lickilicky knows Wrap due to the Baron using in his Lickilicky form, which was caused by transforming into his Lickilicky. It can also be assumed that Baron Alberto knew Hyper Beam while a Lickilicky, due to his Lickilicky knowing it.
  • Baron Alberto's name is changed to Gil Cacique in European Portuguese dub. His dub name was changed so that the pun with the name "Lickilicky" present in the Japanese version would also be in the European Portuguese version. Also, "cacique" is the name given to someone who has political power in a certain place.
