Baron Alberto (Japanese: アルベルト男爵 Baron Alberto) is a minor antagonist who appeared in The Rise of Darkrai.

In the anime

Baron Alberto as a Lickilicky

Alberto first appeared while Alice, Ash, and his friends were investigating some severely twisted pillars in Godey's garden. He was adamant that Darkrai, a longtime resident of the garden, was behind the bizarre occurrence and sought to prove his point.

During the events of the movie, Alberto was transformed into a Lickilicky due to a combination of Darkrai's Dark Void, Palkia's interference with space, and his Lickilicky's dream of becoming Alberto. Angered by this, Alberto assembled a group of Trainers to deal with it. Later on, he returned to his normal form when the effects of Dark Void faded, and became a bystander for much of the destructive battle between Palkia and Dialga.

Alberto appeared again during the ending credits of Arceus and the Jewel of Life. He was piloting his own hot air balloon and still attempting to win over Alice's heart. He also made a cameo appearance in I Choose You!, which is set in a timeline separate from the main series. He was seen with his Lickilicky in Alamos Town.


Implied to have some sort of influence in Alamos Town, Alberto is chauvinistic and vain. He was quick to assign blame of strange occurrences to Darkrai and take charge of the situation when it become apparent that Darkrai was a threat. Even when proven wrong, Alberto maintained his sense of judgment and dismissed the objections of others. The extra attention from Team Rocket, who posed as a news crew, only inflated Alberto's ego.

He is particularly hostile towards Tonio and often insulted him, a relationship compounded by his one-sided romantic affections for Alice. Alberto openly declared that he wanted to marry her, and continued to pursue her even though she indicated her lack of romantic interest in him.

This listing is of Baron's known Pokémon:

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 it 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 was asleep. After Lickilicky wakes up it tries to save Alice from falling off a bridge but fails leaving Tonio to help her.

Lickilicky briefly reappeared in I Choose You!, which is set in a timeline separate from the main series.

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

Movie adaptations

Alberto appears in the manga adaptation of The Rise of Darkrai. His role in the manga is not too different from the original, but his infatuation with Alice is not mentioned. He first appears when Ash and the others notice the Alamos Town Gardens have been ransacked, explaining that he believes that all of the trouble happening in Alamos Town is caused by Darkrai, and swears that he will be the one to defeat it. He works with Team Rocket, thinking that they are working on a documentary about him. After attempting to defeat Darkrai, it transforms him into a Lickilicky as it did in the movie. He is restored to normal after their rematch. Alberto is present during the final battle and realizes Darkrai had only wanted to protect Alamos Town all along.


This listing is of Baron's known Pokémon:

Like in the movie itself, Lickilicky is also Alberto's main Pokémon in the manga adaptation of the movie.

None of Lickilicky's moves are known.

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.
