(Japanese: ラクア Rakua) is an anime-exclusive location in the Pokémon world. Its precise location is currently unknown.

Role

Rakua was first mentioned, albeit not by name, in The Future I Choose!. It was part of the book Alex wrote about Lucius, describing it as a paradise sought by the ancient adventurer and his Pokémon, which they ultimately found and lived happily together in.

Rakua was briefly mentioned by Lucius in HZ023, comforting his Moltres in a vision brought on by Liko's pendant before disappearing and leaving her wondering what it was.

In HZ024, Diana revealed that Rakua is the name of the paradise that Lucius was looking for and that at some point Terapagos was with Lucius on this journey. It was implied that Terapagos may know where Rakua is located, as it jumped off the couch and headed towards the door after Liko mentioned the name, as if to go find it.

In HZ026, Terapagos expressed its desire to find Rakua. Liko, understanding its feelings, brought the idea up to the Rising Volt Tacklers. They agreed to embark on this mission, but in order to complete it, needed to seek out the rest of the Six Heroes, Lucius's party, first.

In HZ032, it was revealed that Lucius's Pokémon made a promise with him to reunite again and that Lucius became one with Rakua.

In HZ034, it was revealed that the Explorers' goal is also to find Rakua.
