The apprentice (Japanese: でし apprentice) is a character from Pokémon Emerald located in the Battle Frontier.

The apprentice will look up to the player for their skill and strategies, and asks the player to assist them by recommending which Pokemon to use on their team as well as items and moves. In time, the apprentice will state that they feel that they have learned everything they can from the player and depart the Battle Tower, after which they can be encountered in the facility. After answering all their questions, a different apprentice will take their place, and the cycle is repeated.

The apprentice will be assigned to a random fixed position in the Tower in Single Mode, much as Anabel is always fought at the 35th and 70th battles. Players can also encounter the Apprentice in the Battle Salon, where they will offer to partner the player in a Multi Battle. The Apprentice's Pokemon's Natures will be random and all Pokemon will have 85 EVs in each stat.
