The Trick Master in the anime

The Trick Master (Japanese: カラクリ大王 King of Tricks) is a character in Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire. He lives on Route 110 in the Trick House.

In the games

He provides the player with eight challenges (six challenges in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire), each beginning with him hiding somewhere in the front room. Once the player finds him, he gives a small speech and says that he will be hiding in the back. Once the player completes the challenge, he will reward them with a prize.

After all challenges are completed, the Trick Master disappears, leaving behind only a note saying he has gone to distant lands to search for new tricks.

Trick Master in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

The Trick Master is a close friend of Wattson and Emerald and helped them design their gadgets. Although he originally appeared as a minor character in the Ruby & Sapphire chapter, he redesigned the electric mecha hidden inside New Mauville so it could fly and helped Sapphire return to the ruins of Sootopolis City and participate in the final battle by heavily recharging Minun and Plusle. It's also revealed that he likes to visit different places other than Hoenn to improve his designs.

In the sixth chapter, he is revealed to have helped Emerald, recommending him to Earl Dervish's Pokémon academy and building his outfit and equipment.

In Epilogue, the Trick Master makes a cameo appearance on a boat heading to the Battle Frontier.

In the Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire chapter, the Trick Master is seen watching a news report about a giant meteoroid that threatens to destroy the world. Later, the Trick Master is called to Sootopolis City to assist in stopping the meteoroid.
