XY Lysandre
This world will eventually reach the point of no return... Saving the lives of all is impossible. Only the chosen ones will obtain a ticket to tomorrow. Do you want to have a ticket? Or, do you want to stop me? Show me in battle.

It's over... Fools with no vision will continue to befoul this beautiful world. They will go on until the only thing left to do is squabble over the remaining scraps of hope...
~ Lysandre upon being defeated


Lysandre (Japanese: フラダリ Fuladari) is the leader of Team Flare and the main antagonist of Pokémon X and Y. Formerly the student of Professor Sycamore, he later went on to found Lysandre Labs and create the Holo Caster. At some point in the future, Lysandre was convinced of humanity's stupidity and became misanthropic, generating his desire to wipe the world of all humans and Pokémon not affiliated with Team Flare through the use of his ancestor's Ultimate Weapon. However, thanks to the efforts of Calem/Serena, he is stopped right before the weapon’s activation, but even after their attempts to convince him that the world is not as bad as he thinks, Lysandre rejects the idea and tries to kill them by detonating the Ultimate Weapon with what little power remains in it. While Calem/Serena escape the explosion, Lysandre is presumed dead and Team Flare disbands.
