Lusamine (Japanese: ルザミーネ Lusamine) is a recurring character in the Pokémon anime. She is Lillie's and Gladion's mother in the Sun & Moon series. She first appeared in Deceiving Appearances!‎. She is the president of Aether Foundation.


History

Lusamine is a recurring character in the Sun & Moon series, first appearing in a photograph with her children Lillie and Gladion seen in Lillie's Egg-xhilarating Challenge! and A Glaring Rivalry!.

She made her physical debut in A Dream Encounter!, where she was investigating the Altar of the Sunne alongside Professor Burnet, Wicke, and Faba for traces of Ultra Aura. During the investigation, she revealed that, ever since childhood, her dream had been to meet one of the Ultra Beasts from her father's stories. The four later followed a second reading to Melemele Island, tracing its source to Nebby, a Cosmog that had been discovered by Ash; she also enthusiastically reunited with Lillie, who was frustrated with her mother's babying attitude. Lusamine initially suggested leaving Nebby with the Aether Foundation when Ash talked about his dream of Solgaleo and Lunala the night before. However, she eventually agreed to entrust the Pokémon to Ash after hearing about his achievements in Alola.

In Deceiving Appearances!, Lusamine invited Lillie and her classmates to Aether Paradise for a tour of the facility, primarily hoping to learn all about Lillie's experience at the Pokémon School. Because of her busy schedule, however, she was unable to fulfill her promise to lead the tour. She later rushed to check on Lillie when she heard her daughter was involved in chasing down an escaped Ditto before quickly returning to her work.

Lusamine appeared again in Night of a Thousand Poses!, where she arranged for Lillie's butler Hobbes to record her daughter's daily life on video for her, which upset Lillie. When Lusamine casually interrupted their conversation to take a business call, Lillie snapped at her mother for her apparent lack of concern for her family. Professor Burnet later assured Lillie that Lusamine truly cared for her children, as she kept numerous pictures of them in her office.

In Mission: Total Recall!, Lusamine was confronted by Gladion over the whereabouts of his Type: Null, Silvally, after it had been stolen by Faba. Lusamine, completely unaware about the entire situation, helped Gladion search for Type: Null in Faba's research room. As they searched, Gladion chastised his mother for failing to notice the childhood trauma Lillie suffered from an Ultra Beast, which Lusamine had ironically ignored in favor of studying the very same creatures. After finding Type: Null's Poké Ball, Lusamine and Gladion headed outside, where they found Faba attacking Lillie and Ash. In order to save Lillie, Type: Null evolved and defeated Faba's Pokémon. With her daughter freed, Lusamine tearfully apologized to Lillie for her ignorance, and was overjoyed when Lillie's experience finally allowed her to overcome her fear.

Lusamine fused with Nihilego

In Faba's Revenge!, Lusamine issued a search for Faba after he had gone missing after his attack on Lillie. She, Lillie, Gladion, and Ash eventually found him as he kidnapped Nebby and forced it to summon a Nihlego from an Ultra Wormhole to fulfill Lusamine's lifelong dream. Although she was enamored by the Ultra Beast at first, Lusamine quickly ignored it when she realized that her children were in danger. The group tried to fight off Nihilego, but it proved to be too powerful and easily defeated their Pokémon. When Gladion tried to protect his family from the Ultra Beast, Lusamine pushed him out of the way and was captured by it instead. Nihilego then proceeded to carry Lusamine into the Ultra Wormhole.

In Rescuing the Unwilling!, Ash, his classmates, and Gladion traveled to Ultra Deep Sea to rescue Lusamine with the help of Nebby, now evolved into a Solgaleo. Lusamine, having fused with Nihilego and been reduced to a childlike state, claimed the Ultra Beasts as her own possessions and fled in order to prevent the group from taking them away. As the group chased Lusamine down, more and more of their members were forced to stay behind in order to fight off Lusamine's Pokémon. Lillie successfully returned Lusamine to her senses in the following episode, and she was freed from Nihilego's grasp with the power of Ash and Pikachu's newly created 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt.

In The Professors' New Adventure!, Lusamine attended the wedding of Professor Kukui] and Professor Burnet alongside Wicke and a demoted Faba. During the post-nuptials, Lusamine asked Ash, Lillie, and their classmates to join the Ultra Guardians, a task force dedicated to dealing with any upcoming Ultra Beast incidents, which they accepted.

She appeared again in A Mission of Ultra Urgency!, where she, Wicke, and Professor Burnet briefed Ash and his classmates on their first mission as Ultra Guardians. She later released the subject of that mission, a Buzzwole, back through an Ultra Wormhole.

Lusamine appeared again in Love at First Twirl!, where she, Wicke, and Professor Burnet contacted Ash and his classmates about the new Pokémon they had just encountered. They confirmed it was an Ultra Beast and chose to name it Poipole. Since the location of the Ultra Wormhole it had appeared from was unknown, Lusamine instructed Ash to catch Poipole and take care of it until it could be returned to its home world.

Lusamine appeared again in Rise and Shine, Starship!, where she, Wicke, and Professor Burnet alerted Ash and his classmates to Celesteela and was surprised to learn they had already seen it. She later watched, via video, as the group allowed it to fly back home.

In Twirling with a Bang!, Lusamine informed the Ultra Guardians about the Ultra Beast Blacephalon and sent them on a mission to catch it. After tracking Blacephalon's energy signature, the Ultra Guardians instead encountered Xurkitree, a different Ultra Beast. Once both beasts were successfully caught, Lusamine witnessed as the Ultra Guardians released them back to their home worlds.

In the Poké Problem segment of SM079, Lusamine was seen watching a Minior shower.

In The Shape of Love to Come!, Lusamine, Wicke, and Faba were informed by Ash about new information regarding his Poipole. There, Ash revealed that the drawings Poipole makes are an expression of its mood.

In The Long Vault Home!, Lusamine informed the Ultra Guardians about Stakataka, another Ultra Beast that appeared at the Pokémon School. Once the Ultra Guardians successfully caught Stakataka, Lusamine watched as Stakataka was sent back to its world.

In SM087, mysterious dark clouds appeared over Alola, leaving all of the adults tired and without motivation. After doing some research, Lusamine, Wicke, Faba, and Professor Burnet, the only ones unaffected, found out that the cause of the incident was a small Ultra Wormhole that was slowly draining the adults of their energy. The Ultra Guardians were sent to the Altar of the Sunne, where Lusamine revealed that they would be joined by Gladion as a new member. Under Faba's instruction, the Ultra Guardians with Z-Rings combined their Z-Power to fuel a device that could disperse the clouds and reveal the hidden Ultra Wormhole. Afterwards, Lusamine took the Ultra Guardians into the ruins of the altar, where she showed them a mural depicting the Blinding One. Before any attempt to translate the mural could be done, the Ultra Guardians were forced to return outside, where they found the wormhole increasing in size. At that moment, a Lunala emerged from the wormhole with a Necrozma chasing after it.

In the following episode, the Ultra Guardians followed the two Legendary Pokémon to Melemele Island, prompting Lusamine and the others follow suit. She was later seen arriving at the island, after Necrozma had fused with Nebby and had left. She and the others then oversaw Lunala recover in the Ultra Guardians base. When the Ultra Guardians decided to go after Necrozma, Lusamine was initially against the plan, but eventually allowed the group to leave. After the Ultra Guardians and Lunala left for Ultra Space, Lusamine stayed behind at the base with Burnet and Wicke to gather information and give orders. When Burnet managed to translate the mural from the Altar of the Sunne, Lusamine learned the true identity of UB: BLACK and how to restore it back to its former self. After contacting the Ultra Guardians again and sharing their findings with them in the next episode, Lusamine joined the rest of Alola in sharing their Z-Power with Necrozma so it could return to its true form. After Necrozma returned to its Ultra form, Lusamine watched as the Ultra Guardians, Nebby, and Lunala returned to Alola, alongside Burnet, Wicke, Faba, and Kukui.

Lusamine reappeared in SM093 where she watched the play that was being held in the Pokémon School, where she made friends with Delia. She reappeared again in SM095. After noticing an unusual magnetic energy at Wela Volcano Park which was interfering with the Aether Foundation's ability to detect Ultra Aura. The Ultra Guardians flew over the area only to discover the havoc was caused by a group of Alolan Graveler along with Alolan Geodude and an Alolan Golem, after their feeding rituals were disrupted by a group of rock hunters. With help from Metang, the group were calmed down.

Lusamine will reappear again in SM096.

Character

Unlike her game counterpart, Lusamine in the anime is a genuine Pokémon preservationist and a loving mother to both Lillie and Gladion. She has a particular affection for Lillie, often playfully teasing her and treating her like a baby, which greatly embarrasses her daughter. Because she is easily distracted with her work, Lusamine tends to make decisions without considering Lillie's feelings, causing a strain in their relationship. For instance, she once evolved her Clefairy into Clefable against Lillie's wishes, disregarding her daughter's argument that its unevolved form was cuter. Lusamine became deeply ashamed of herself after realizing just how much she had been neglecting her children, especially her failure to notice the trauma that caused Lillie's fear of Pokémon four years earlier, believing she had failed as a mother. Once made aware of the danger her children are in, she proves herself to be fiercely protective of them, evidenced by her decision to sacrifice herself to Nihilego for their safety and expressing no fear as she was taken away, only relief that her children were safe. After Lillie rescued her from Nihilego, Lusamine started to treat Lillie more like an adult, improving their relationship dramatically.

Lusamine's strong obsession with Ultra Beasts has also appeared to override her sense of reason, causing her to momentarily marvel at the Nihilego summoned by Faba in spite of the danger it posed to her and her family. While temporarily fused with Nihilego, Lusamine's obsession was amplified to the point where she regressed to the mindset of a spoiled child. In this state, she referred to the Ultra Beasts as her belongings, and reacted violently to those she assumed were trying to take them away from her. However, she was able to regain herself through her strong force of will upon hearing Lillie call out to her. Following her rescue, Lusamine takes a far more constructive approach to interacting with Ultra Beasts, organizing the Ultra Guardians to help return lost Ultra Beasts to their habitats.
