Apparently Lillie is UB-01, due to an uncanny resemblance.
“UB-01’s body is composed of a glass-like substance. However, it’s constantly changing shapes, never settling on one.
While evidence of something like a survival instinct can be observed in UB-01, no one knows whether it has a will of its own or any emotions. It’s said that, for some reason, its movements resemble those of a young girl.”
Though Pokémon has allowed shape-shifting abilities before, I’d like to think they’re not one and the same. The “same age as your character,””working as Kukui’s assistant for personal reasons,” “but she loves reading and has devoured many books,” makes her sound very un-Pokémon like. If she is related to Lusamine and Gladion, then my guess is the Aether Foundation isn’t studying Ultra Beasts, but creating them. It makes sense considering the code name UB-01, like an experiment (alchemical?) And the similarity between Lillie and UB-01 might simply be because it was based of her, or she was the basis of its existence, then the next Ultra Beasts will bear similarities to Gladion and Yusamine. A bit farfetch’d but maybe it’s just me not wanting her to be a Pokémon.
UPDATE 2017: People still seem to be viewing this article. So corrections to my: Lusamine is their mother (even Hau was surprised by her age!), and Faba is not a stated part of the family, and Wicke is definitely not in the family.
Since the video cam out a little less than an hour ago, and even though I dumped the idea of writing about each video, I wanted to put this out there, because though obvious, I haven’t seen it in the YouTube comments just yet. I think we have the answer to Lillie’s “Big Secret.”
If it wasn’t obvious, I was just pointing out how they all look ridiculously similar. That other purple-haired lady (Wicke) may be the mother (She has a similar eye colour); but I think Faba is the dad, Lusamine is the oldest child, Gladion is the rebel middle-child (a member of Team Skull as opposed to his Aether Foundation Family), and Lillie is the unaffiliated youngest child. They’re names are all flower inspired-
- Lillie – Lily
- Faba – Faba flowers (for the Faba bean)
- Gladion – Gladiolus
- Lusamine – Jasmine (plus the “Lus” of the Gladiolus?)
- Wicke – Like a wicker basket?
Also the man-made looking island is the Aether Foundation, and sadly not the League.
In the end, I am pretty sure, if not everything, the three are at least siblings.
UPDATE 2016: She’s their mother :0
