Both Gladion and Lusamine were not seen in the anime beyond this old photo. But the photo above clearly shows that the characters in the game do not only look alike. They are related to each other. They are a family.
But the story takes a dark turn as Lusamine ends up being Sun and Moon?s most promising villain. Pok?mon games are known more for its gameplay than its narrative. For this reason, ?Lusamine?s relationship with her children is surprisingly heartfelt.
