Pokémon watcher

Pokémon watcher Tracey

A Pokémon watcher (Japanese: ポケモンウォッチャー Pokémon watcher) is a person who studies Pokémon in their natural habitat.


Pokémon watchers study how Pokémon behave in the wild. They travel the world looking for all kinds of Pokémon so they can observe and study their characteristics and abilities. They also search for new, undiscovered Pokémon and they often write reports to be reviewed by Pokémon Professors.

Pokémon watchers, like some Pokémon researchers, are known to be eccentric due to their overwhelming fascination with Pokémon. The famous Pokémon watcher Dr. Quackenpoker, for instance, devoted his entire life to studying Magikarp.
