The Pokémon Fan Club (Japanese: ポケモン大好きクラブ Pokémon Lovers Club) is an organization spread throughout the Pokémon world, with at least one Club House in nearly every region. The club is basically a place for people to meet and chat about their favorite Pokémon and to show off their collections to each other. In general, the members are usually more oriented to unevolved, cute Pokémon and Pokémon Contests than Pokémon battles.

In the games

The Chairman of the Pokémon Fan Club has appeared in every core series Pokémon game. Gabby and Ty often visit the Club House in Hoenn to do interviews with enthusiastic Trainers.

Trainers of the Poké Fan Trainer class are members of the Pokémon Fan Club. In Platinum, members of the Pokémon Fan Club randomly appear in the Battle Frontier facilities.

Club Houses

In the anime

The Pokémon Fan Club has not appeared in the anime. However, it is known that Mr. Sukizo is the President. Also, the Pokémon Lover's Club that appeared on Hypno's Naptime, might be based on the Pokémon Fan Club.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Pokémon Fan Clubs are found in Kanto, Hoenn and Sinnoh regions. In Kanto and Hoenn the club houses are marked with plaques featuring a Pikachu located in front of the building, while the Sinnoh club house is shown having a heart-shaped plaque in front of the building.

The Kanto branch is introduced in Danger: High Voltorb in the Red, Green & Blue chapter. Red is made an honorary member of the club by the club's chairman after he saw Red's Pokémon. The members are primarily made up of a group of middle-aged Pokéfans that talk about their favorite Pokémon and read the club magazine. They hate to force Pokémon into battles and they prefer unevolved ones, because they're cuter. In the manga, their Pokémon are stolen by Team Rocket, but they're returned to their Trainers in Buzz Off, Electabuzz! when Red defeats Lt. Surge.

The Hoenn branch is introduced in Tripped Up by Torkoal where the Pokémon club's chairman brings Ruby to the club house after making him an honorary member of the club.

The Sinnoh branch is introduced in Perturbed by Pachirisu where Diamond, Pearl and Platinum are made honorary members of the club and taken to the club house by the chairman.

Pokémon Fan Club was introduced as a Supporter card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game during the English e-Card Series (the Japanese e-Card Era). First released in the Japanese The Town on No Map expansion, it later debuted in English in the Aquapolis expansion, with both prints featuring an illustration by Ken Sugimori. It was later reprinted in Japanese as one of the PCG-P Promotional cards and in English in POP Series 4, with a new illustration by Ken Sugimori. It was reprinted yet again in the Japanese Wild Blaze expansion, both as a regular card and a Full Art card. The regular print features an illustration based on the Yusuke Ohmura artwork of both genders of the Generation VI Poké Fan Trainer class, while the Full Art print features the debut artwork of Emi Ando.
