Jack[1] (Japanese: ポケモンセンターの職員[2] Pokémon Center Staff) is a character in Pokémon Sword and Shield who can be found behind the left counter in every Pokémon Center in Galar. He offers the services of the Name Rater, Memory Girl, Move Reminder, and Move Deleter from previous games, being able to change a Pokémon's nickname, check a Pokémon's memories (after the player has obtained three Badges), have a Pokémon remember a move, and have a Pokémon forget a move. He is also notable for being the only Move Reminder in the series who does not require a payment to have Pokémon remember moves. He is always accompanied by an Indeedee, the gender of which varies depending on the specific Pokémon Center.

His name is derived from the term 'jack-of-all-trades', referring to the multiple different services he can provide. He shares his model with the Café Master Trainer class.

"Got some Pokémon questions? Feel free to ask away."
Rate a nickname:
"Which Pokémon's nickname should I rate for you?"'
  • If an Egg is selected
"Now, now... That is merely an Egg."
"Hmmm. <nickname>! That is a truly impeccable nickname! I can't say anything bad about it! Take good care of <nickname>!"
  • If a Pokémon whose Original Trainer is the player or an outsider Pokémon without a nickname is selected
"Hmmm. <nickname>, is it? That is quite a fine nickname. But I think we could give it something even better. What do you think?"
No: "All right. Let me know if you change your mind."
Yes: "I see! What would you like the new nickname to be?"
  • After a name is inputted for an outsider Pokémon that didn't have a nickname
"For a Pokémon you got from another Trainer, you only get one go at changing its name. It'll be <nickname> from now on and forever. So you're sure that's the name you want?"
  • After a name is inputted (or confirmed for an outsider Pokémon)
"Done! From now on, this Pokémon shall be known as <nickname>!"
  • If different from old name
"You're right—that does seem to fit it better. Nicely done!"
  • If the same as old name
"It looks no different from before, but we both know this name is much better! How fortunate for you!"
"Shall I rate another Pokémon's name?"
Check a Pokémon's memories:
  • First time
"Somehow I can tell what Pokémon remember."
"Which Pokémon's memories are you interested in?"
"<memory 1>"
  • If there are two memories, followed by
"<nickname> seems to have memories from its time with another Trainer. <memory 2>"
"Do you want to hear about the memories of any other Pokémon?"
Remember a move:
  • First time
"I can have your Pokémon remember any move they should've had the chance to learn up until where they are now."
"Which Pokémon should I have remember a move?"
  • If the selected Pokémon cannot be taught a move
"It doesn't seem like that Pokémon has any moves that it can remember."
  • If the selected Pokémon can be taught a move
"Which move should it remember?"
"Is there another Pokémon you'd like me to help remember some moves?"
Forget a move:
  • First time
"You want one of your Pokémon to forget a move? If you want your Pokémon to use a move it's forgotten, it'll have to relearn the move first. So be careful."
"Which Pokémon should I have forget a move?"
  • If the selected Pokémon cannot forget a move
"It doesn't seem like that Pokémon has any moves that it can forget."
  • If the selected Pokémon can forget a move
"Which move should it forget?"
"Would you like me to have your Pokémon forget any other moves?"
"Well, come back anytime."
