Fateen (Japanese: ビーディ Beedy) is an old woman who runs a fortunetelling business at the very entrance of Pyrite Town in Orre. She does this by scrying in a crystal ball in order to give advice to others and tell their fortunes. She is known as the "Mother of Pyrite Town". She gets almost as much respect from the town's citizens as Duking. Everyone in town knows her and has asked for her advice at one time or another. Many Pokémon Trainers ask her if they will win battles or tournaments; others ask about romance.
Although Fateen appears at first the stereotypical trickster, she does possess actual psychic talent. She is the one who gives Wes and Rui the first clue about how to purify Shadow Pokémon and directs them to Agate Village. Furthermore, she later points them in the direction of The Under. She may also be approached many times throughout the game in order to receive clues as to what to do next that are from what she sees in the crystal ball.
Fateen appears again in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, this time playing no role other than giving Michael clues as to where to go next. Once 82 Shadow Pokémon have been snagged, Fateen will exclaim that there is "something beyond even [her] sight", which she can only describe as "[a]n immense round thing" "[a]top a lighthouse".
